Uncharted 2 GOTY Shipping In October, Coming With DLC Voucher

Insert Nolan North joke here.

Have a PS3 and still don't have Uncharted 2: Among Thieves? On a normal day, this is where I would make a clicking sound and wag my finger in an attempt to shame you into a purchase. But today is not a typical day, because it looks like you, Mr. I-Don't-Have-Uncharted 2, may have made the right decision in holding off. SCE has just announced a $50 Game of the Year version of the oft-hailed game that ships on October 12 with a "super voucher," which gives you access to the following DLC:

  • PlayStation Heroes Skin Pack
  • Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Multiplayer Pack
  • Uncharted 2 Siege Expansion Pack
  • Currency Multiplier which grants Double XP up to level 10 in Multiplayer
  • Golden Guns option for the AK-47 and the 92FS 9mm pistol for use in Multiplayer
  • Early access to “Revenge” Booster -- you still have to purchase it with in-game cash!
  • Uncharted: Eye of Indra -- Motion Comic Bundle (which includes Episodes 1-4)
  • Uncharted: Eye of Indra -- Rika Raja and Daniel Pinkerton Character Skins
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves -- Avatar Pack 1
  • Uncharted 2: Among Thieves -- Avatar Pack 2
  • Uncharted Avatar Pack 3
  • Uncharted Avatar Pack 4
  • Pinball Heroes -- Uncharted for the PSP
 


== TEASER ==As some eagle-eyed Uncharted 2 owners may have just noticed, some of the post-release DLC listed above isn't available for purchase separately, so it's obvious you're getting a fairly exclusive deal here. And speaking of deals, you'll be saving more than just 10 bucks by starting off with this version. According to Sony, all of this DLC adds up to around $35. Your voucher, however, will give it all to you for free. Not so bad after all, Mr. I-Don't-Have-Uncharted 2.
 
In case you're not catching my drift, I want to make it clear that Uncharted 2 is a good, good game. Like, a really good game, man. Check out this video review and hit this text to learn why.

Thems a lot of DLC

Posted by VicRattlehead

good deal this... think i might have to pick it up

Posted by Zimbo

Maybe I can finally convince my friend to buy it now. He seems intent on wasting all his money on PS Move games instead.

finally

Posted by Branthog

A voucher? What does this mean? The content is not included on the disc, so you're just paying $50 for the regular game plus some DLC codes?
 
The thing that is so great about game of the year editions is that they seem to usually include all the DLC on the disc, which means that when the next console comes out and they shut down XBOX 360 access to Live, you can still play Fallout 3 or something.

if 60$ for the game alone was an awesome deal, this is magic

Posted by msavo

I'm starting to think I should just buy GOTY editions from now on. I'll be behind a year in terms of games but I'll get a crap more content :P

Posted by YoctoYotta

If you own a PS3 and don't have this game, you're doing yourself a great disservice. Awesome fun aside, it's still one of the best technical showpieces for your $300+ hardware investment.

Posted by MetalGearSunny

Shit...I might've bought it if I had money.

Posted by Hamz

Amazing deal for an amazing game. No excuse not to buy this if you have a PS3 and haven't already bought a copy of Uncharted 2.

Posted by FritzDude

Oh yeah 

 



 

Posted by TurboMan

Am I the only one that doesn't think this deal looks any good? Just buy the game for cheap if you don't have it yet... who cares about online skins...

Uncharted 3 will be the return of Jesus Christ in a video game form.

Mr. I-Don't-Have-Uncharted 2, I guess that's me. The GOTY edition looks dope, though. October is going to be an expensive month...
Posted by Spiral_Stars

Not having this game is a goddamn crime.

Noobs better be looking out.
Posted by Yummylee

Sweetness! I'll totally buy this, since I lost my original copy ages ago and still leaves plenty of DLC, too.

Posted by Sanj

Anyone who has a PS3 but doesn't have Uncharted 2 is a bad person and deserves to go to jail.
Posted by mgrelik@msn.com

Imo, just rent the game, experience the single player and save yourself $50. the single player is an incredible experience... The first time. Not much reason to play it after finishing it.

The multi player is well done, but not really good enough to take you away from other stuff you're probably playing already.

Don't get me wrong, it was an incredible game... I just wish I'd rented it, because I beat it, and its been sitting on my shelf ever since.

Posted by Raymayne

Wow...I sold my original copy and sorta thought maybe someday I'd pick up a goty version like this but....no thanks. Multiplayer skins and golden guns...I couldn't care less. It's like even they knew it was a shitty package and were just desperate for extra stuff to justify the pricetag...Pinball Heroes? :|

Posted by valrog

Sweet.

Posted by 234r2we232

Ahhh, so THIS is what Naughty Dog will be shilling this Thursday. Wondered what it would be ;)

Posted by bybeach

It's all multi player, which is fine but doesn't apply to me. 
 
As for games just sitting there after you have played them..i love the idea of having a collection. True, manhunter or system shock 2 doesn't run well on a newer box, and manhunter well, that was a one time game maybe anyways. But I love being able to pick up a game a year or 2 later and re-play it. Uncharted 2 is definetly on that list for next year. Great graphics, great gameplay, decent story.

Finally, a game that actually deserves a GOTY edition.

Posted by blacklab

You know what I'd like? More actual story content. All of that other stuff is just window dressing.

And get raped.
Posted by Dodongo

If you're only interested in the single player, why would't you just buy the regular edition and save $10-20?  Seems like all that extra stuff is multiplayer focused.

Uncharted's multiplayer is pretty great.
Posted by S0ndor

You get a game which you could buy for 20 bucks + 35 dollars worth of multiplayer skins. Doesn't sound like a great deal to me at all. Just buy the regular version, or rent it even.

Posted by Demyx

makes for a great christmans present. Still need to finish the first lol.

Posted by FuzzYLemoN

Wow, they couldn't even be bothered to put that stuff on the disk? Come on.

  also, this
Posted by dougbrit2

Must say the set pieces are what kept me coming back to this game, but like a lot multi-player just isn't my thing, nice bundle though.

Edited by HydraHam

Now i have a reason to buy it, i rented it from gamefly but never wanted to drop 60$ on it.

  Guess i am a bad person, i rented it because i wasn't THAT impressed with the first one and i had 0 interest in the MP, but for all this DLC at this price tag i have a reason to pick it up, plus it might be even cheaper on black friday.

I like how the Giantbomb logo is in the trailer!

Posted by odintal

I wonder why they didn't put it on the disc...

Posted by spilledmilkfactory

pound bricks mother-HELLO

Posted by dablemont

Hahaha well I'm glad I waited to get this game! Will wait for this edition then! =D

Posted by TheHT

FUCK. I NEED to stop buying games until I'm ready to play them.
 
I bought Uncharted 2 a few months ago but was only gonna start it next week or so.
 
FUCK SHIT FUCK.

Posted by Modnar

Excellent value. The online multiplayer community is still quite active too so anyone who hasn't already got it has no excuse now

Posted by RobotHamster

Incredible game, best of last year and one of the best of all time.  No reason not to get this and if you don't own a ps3, get one.

Posted by GGear0323

yeah, nice game and all, but why would you want to get this version at this point? almost all the extra content is either stuff nobody wants or multiplayer crap. now, i now people like their multiplayer, but you know as well as anyone that people buy this game for the single player, and it just makes more sense to buy the regular game for cheap than getting this.

Posted by Jayross

Alright, another sign to get a PS3. Black Friday. For sure.

Nobody is more authentic than Nolan North

There's also a Siege expansion thrown in there for good measure. And a pinball game
Posted by LiquidPrince

Yup, I'm still in the video review =P

Posted by rook538

Sounds cool. Also, only $10 more than what Amazon sells regular Uncharted 2 for.
