Seriously, I feel like everyone is getting it but I'm really not excited for it. I am importing Lords of the Apocalypse and getting FIFA Soccer for the first batch and not really thinking about the future due to PSP titles I'll be playing too. Just feel as though Uncharted is a better console game.

I will probably get to it at some point but for the moment I'd be more than happy with a simple demo and that's it. My focus will be mainly on sports game and Japanese titles xP.

So am I the only one not getting this game on day one?

If I get a Vita (by which I mean "if Birth by Sleep comes to PSNV"), I won't get it. I've never even been in the same room as an Uncharted game.

#3 Posted by Vexxan (4623 posts) -

When I'm getting a Vita I probably won't buy it, haven't played any of the Uncharted games.

I tried Unchartered 1 and it wasn't for me. I got really bored, really quickly. So, no, when I get a Vita I will not be getting this (except used and maybe $10 to try out).

#7 Posted by FancySoapsMan (5841 posts) -


Uncharted 1 and 2 were boring, and GA doesn't look like it will be any different.

#8 Posted by SuperWristBands (2266 posts) -

I don't feel all that strongly towards the uncharted series. It's great, no doubt but it doesn't really grab me. When I get a Vita, I don't intend to get the Uncharted game. For conversations sake I would get HotShots Golf and Wipeout if I were to purchase it at launch (which I really want to but I feel like I should wait for the redesign or a large price drop).

#9 Posted by huntad (1956 posts) -

Yup, definitely the only one.

#10 Posted by biospank (660 posts) -

No, I don't have it and I am perfectly happy about it. I think that the touch events are rather retarded from playing the japanese demo. If I would be you sir I would buy dynasty warriors next. Not only because its a mindless sorta game but because the touch events makes more sense then uncharted. You should pick up army corps of hell also because its actually fun.

#11 Posted by RE_Player1 (7563 posts) -

I'm not getting it at launch but I'm getting it maybe a month down the line.

#12 Posted by shootermcclay (219 posts) -

Love me some Sony exclusives, except Uncharted. I will not be buying this game. inFAMOUS has the only third-person shooting I have ever loved.

#13 Posted by Sergio (2161 posts) -

I don't plan to get it on launch. I got frustrated with the controls of Uncharted 3 and put it down. After I get around to finishing it, then I might consider picking this up.

#14 Posted by Wraith1 (564 posts) -

lumines is the only game you need

#15 Edited by believer258 (11999 posts) -

More Uncharted? Bloody hell, I'll just follow the all important 3 B's of the internet!

1) Buy it!

2) Beat it!

3) Bitch about it!

Honestly, yes, if I was going to get a Vita that would probably be one of the games simply out of need for an decent shooter on every game console I have. That said, my feelings toward the Uncharted series amount to "eh...good, I guess" at the best of times and "utterly apathetic" at the worst.

EDIT: Except the multiplayer. If that's the same as the PS3 one, then it might stay in my (hypothetical, at this point) Vita for a good while.

#16 Posted by JackSukeru (5922 posts) -

I won't be getting one at launch, whenever that is, but I think I'll pick one up at some point. If or when I do I doubt I'll want to play Uncharted on it though.

#17 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

Climb, shoot guys, scripted event, cutscene > repeat

No I won't be getting it :) Uncharted 3 bored me, the series outstayed its welcome in my eyes now, the combat is so dull.

#18 Posted by LethalKi11ler (1407 posts) -

@biospank: I've played too many Dynasty Warriors games to be interested in this one to be honest :P But yeah Army corps of hell defo looks good but I'll probably get it after I'm done with the games I'm getting at launch :)

#19 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19372 posts) -

Definitely not. If it had online multiplayer (that was not co-op), I'd consider it, but it's not a game I could see myself going back to after I'm done with it plus it's expensive.

#20 Posted by biospank (660 posts) -
@LethalKi11ler: shinobido2 and dark quest: aliance are some other games that a worth playing. because I don't think that tales of inocence r and ragnarok oddesey is coming at the western vita launch. 
I have only disgea3 that I have still yet to play and gravity daze but that jp demo was pretty good.
#21 Posted by M_Shini (551 posts) -

Im not getting it, in fact im not buying a single Vita game at luanch anyway, for the moment its just to catch up on whatever PSP games i wanted to play and missed on the PSN store which is fine for now, i guess i do plan on playing Golden Abyss eventually, but i haven't had time to play any uncharted on the PS3 yet so im kind of waiting for myself to get around to playing through though's before buying Golden Abyss.

#22 Posted by IAmNotBatman (654 posts) -

The answer to "Am I the only" anything in a video-game forum is always no.

#23 Posted by Cloudenvy (5891 posts) -

Yupp, you are unique my own little snowflake!

#24 Posted by kindgineer (2771 posts) -

Never liked Uncharted, not my style. So, no.

#25 Posted by Flappy (2302 posts) -

I know I won't be getting it. My Vita is probably gonna be known as the "JRPG Machine V.2" (the original one being the PSP).

#26 Posted by lord_canti (1517 posts) -

it seems to be the most bundled game so i guess a lot of people will get it if they want it or not , in fact i think Amazon is the only store in the uk that isn't bundling it together. but i will get it regardless as i like the uncharted series but games like wipeout makes it worth getting.

#27 Posted by LethalKi11ler (1407 posts) -

@biospank: Lol you're getting me more and more excited for Wednesday =D

#28 Posted by Metric_Outlaw (1172 posts) -

I'd rather take a golden shower than play Golden Abyss so no you're not the only one.

Pretty sure your choice is already confirmed then- since licensing issues apparently prevent Birth By Sleep from becoming a downloadable title at all. :P

As for me- I am most certainly not getting a Vita at launch.

And if I ever do get a Vita (Odds are decent I will at some point- but we'll see)... I simply wouldn't ever get Uncharted, as the series has never interested me in the slightest.

#30 Posted by hughesman (312 posts) -

It's gonna be all Lumines and tactics ogre for me. Man, launch is really creepin right on up on us.

#31 Posted by biospank (660 posts) -
@KittyMeggerz: that is the minus with the vita the psp games look really bad, I mean really bad like almost ps1 bad looking. 
@LethalKi11ler: Not only that but its region free like the ps3 so you can import the games you want from japan or hong kong unlike another system(3ds). If you do import a game or 2 then i would recomend tales of inocence and ragnarok oddesey even if the last one is only a monster hunter clone but its a good one at that unlike lords of apocalypse, which really bummed me out. 
#32 Edited by mordukai (7157 posts) -

Yes you are the only one in the entire market of the vita owners who won't be buying it!

God I fucking hate it when people use the "Am I the only one" or the "Please explain to me why...".

#33 Posted by wjb (1676 posts) -

When I eventually buy a Vita -- not now -- Golden Abyss will be a rental, at best.

I haven't really read up on it, but is it supposed to be like the first Uncharted? Like, in scope?

#34 Posted by Village_Guy (2638 posts) -

Of course you are the only one. You are unique and special and nobody in the entire world is anything like you, so no-one in the entire world will do what you do! ...I'm tired of people saying "Am I the only one..." You are never the only one.

It's longer than Uncharted 3, but other than that I don't know.
#36 Posted by Toms115 (2316 posts) -

yes, but i'd take this even further. i'd say you're the only person on earth not getting this game, vita-owner or not.

#37 Posted by LethalKi11ler (1407 posts) -

@biospank: Yeah I'm importing Lords of Apocalypse ;)

@Mordukai: Haha calm down buddy, I didn't mean only one in the world. I should have said "How many people aren't getting the game".

@Village_Guy: :)

This is a dumb question, but I'm pretty retarded with these types of things. Lord of Apocalypse seems awesome, but if I imported it. It'd be in japanese right? And there isn't really a way to get an english patch, right..?

#39 Posted by Kaishou (19 posts) -

It would be in Japanese and theres no way of patching it since the Vita isn't...hackable...yet. I'm not getting Uncharted either, haven't completed the 2nd game nor the 3rd so I refuse to buy the vita one until I complete the previous 2 games.

#40 Posted by LethalKi11ler (1407 posts) -

@emergency: Exactly what Kaishou below you said. Still really excited for it :)

@emergency: nope it aint any english patch as I know of. 
@LethalKi11ler: Import ragnarok odyssey rather then Lords of apocalypse.
#43 Posted by Raven10 (1851 posts) -

I'm not getting it at launch but if I was I might get Uncharted. This one sounds more like the original which honestly wasn't all that great in my opinion. While the launch games all look cool, none really seem like must haves. I'm sure I'll get some of them, including Uncharted when I get a Vita 3 years down the line, assuming the system lasts that long.

#44 Posted by awesomeusername (4219 posts) -

Wow. A lot of people don't like uncharted. This is mind boggling to me. I thought opinions were a myth!

That's a shame.. It looks like it'll eventually get an english release at some point so I'll have to wait for that.

#46 Posted by LethalKi11ler (1407 posts) -

@biospank: Just checked the game out, looks really cool too =D Might import it too

#48 Posted by AngelN7 (2970 posts) -

Wow did not expect this much hate for Uncharted ... I won't be getting a Vita soon anyways but that looks like a great game for the system launch , peronsally I don't think It'll be as fun or as impressive cinematic wise as the last 2 games wich is what I want from an Uncharted game, this seems more Uncharted Drake's Fortune Uncharted and that dosn't interest me.

#49 Posted by Floppypants (798 posts) -

I've played all the past Uncharted games and generally enjoyed them, but I'm skeptical of Golden Abyss. It's a different studio, on a different platform, charging $50.

It's a launch title, so I figure the price will drop pretty fast, and there are plenty of other good launch titles to play in the meantime.

#50 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6320 posts) -

I don't give a fuck about Uncharted.
