Nathan Drake, the wise-cracking treasure hunter, returns for a third time in Naughty Dog’s newest title, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. For readers who don’t know, Uncharted 2 won Game of the Year 2009 from various sites such as IGN, Kotaku, Giant Bomb, Joystiq, Eurogamer and many more. Has Naughty Dog pulled it off yet again?
We’re still not entirely sure when the NGP is coming. Initially, many seemed to be speculating a 2012 release, but it seems more and more likely for a 2011 release. According to this rumor, it will be launching later this year and it will be hitting a region other than Japan first. But we’ve heard similar rumors multiple times. What’s more intresting is the extra baggage this rumor carries.
According to the sources of the UK website, Jolt, Sony has four first party titles locked in for launch right now. The list includes Mod Nation Racers, Wipeout 2048, Smart As and most important of all, Uncharted. The source also claims that Resistance for the NGP will be launching sometime within January and March in 2012.
If true, that’s a pretty strong line-up for launch. This doesn’t even include offerings that third parties may have. NGP is likely to be a huge part of Sony’s E3 presentation in June. So it won’t be too long until we get some solid details.
Anyway, the developers of Infamous 2 are wanting to set the newest benchmark in graphical greatness by having its upcoming title Infamous 2 to have better graphics than the current undisputed champion of Uncharted 2. While they offer no proof to their desired claim, the development team seems very confident.
Although it’s a shame to have such great graphics and keep Cole with that terrible haircut.
With Uncharted 2 Naughty Dog proved that the series was a force to be reckoned with, stealing many Game of the Year awards in 2009. And with sales to back up those awards, a second sequel is inveitble. Sony has been quiet so far, but a inside source claims to have information about the title.
The inside source claims that Uncharted 3 will be shown at Spike TV’s VGAs, and that it will take place in a desert. While it hasn’t been confirmed, it does seem like a likely step after being in the jungles of South America and the Himalayas.
Spike TV’s VGAs is set to air December 11th at 5pm Pacific time.
