It all started about a year and a half ago when Naughty Dog and Sony started promoting Uncharted 3. The company gave away promotional items through conventions and expo’s such as PAX EAST, E3, San Diego Comic-Con, PAX PRIME, and until recently New York Comic-Con. Now these promotional items were T-shirts and Voucher codes. Each voucher code had a description describing each as “Mystery Weapon” or “Character Torso”. Early on I long contemplated what these PSN redeem codes would be however now that the game is officially released, the mystery is revealed.
Oly, Kane, and I were lucky enough to get hooked up with Premium Passes and attend the biggest Uncharted 3 AMC theaters event in L.A. This L.A. show had most of the cast in attendance. The 4 hour event started with registration, where they verified your identity, gave you a badge, and a card that contained a validation code for a free copy of the game. The UC3 game will be shipped to us one week before release! You had to register your address onsite using the card.
Soon after registering, we started to mingle around with the talent that was there. We got a couple of pictures and posters signed, by most of the crew.

Salutations Foo Army!
The Uncharted 3 hype train finally makes a stop in San Francisco on Thursday. I’d be a dirty liar if I said to you that I wasn’t riding in first class. I’m the conductor, the engineer, the ticket guy and I’m the dining car chef that makes those tasty little omelets you get with anything you like in them. All of them – plus the Foo you’ve come to know and love.
Once again, I’ll tread out to the city by the bay and live blog (without the technical difficulties this time) the hell out of this event. There’s no embargo on this event – so its no holds barred steel cage match of UC3 info coming your way.
Being held at the Metreon Building in San Francisco, hopefully the event will be held to only one floor. This place is massive and when you think large, think about triple what you’re think and then multiply by two.
It’s big. And it’s also sold out.
I went big and got the bundle which includes a copy of the game that will be FedEx’d to me a week before the game comes out. It also includes my admission, which gives me a chance to participate in some sort of UC3 gameplay tourney – so keep those fingers crossed for Foo!
We’ll be starting the liveblog at 1pm PST – and I’ll be giving out prizes I wasn’t able to give out last liveblog because AT&T’s wonderful coverage. My apologies, but I’ll do my darnedest to get all you Drake fans the coverage and info you’ve been craving for. Did I mention prizes?
Until then, stay tuned loyal minions!! Photos of Harrison Ford playing Uncharted 3 and the Live Blog after the jump!
Naughty Dog is launching a DLC program that will provide you with a the first four multiplayer map packs and the first three multiplayer skin packs for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception in exchange for $24.99. The new program, entitled Fortune Hunters’ Club, will ensure a 45% savings on purchasing each pack separately once the packs are out. Members of the club will also receive an exclusive Fortune Hunters Club theme and will be notified via an XMB message upon the release of each DLC.
According to the official PlayStation blog, The Fortune Hunters’ Club season ticket is available for pre-order today on the PlayStation Store and select retailers. Uncharted 3 DLC is valued at over $45 when sold separately and we should expect the first DLC to arrive in November.
Time for our first Uncharted 3 game night! Don’t have access? Head over to Subway to get the early multiplayer access code. I’ve been playing it off and on and it’s a blast! It’s a big improvement over Uncharted 2 I think.
For everyone that shows up to the game night I will be picking a winner at random to giveaway a Uncharted 3 mystery skinned Weapon #3 code that I got from E3 2011!
I’ll be hanging around in the PS3Blog.net Home Clubhouse about 10 minutes before we begin if you want to hang out there for a bit. We have arcades machines, pool table and a golden throne for you to try out.
You will get 100 points for coming to a game night. When you show up for the game night I will message you on the PSN with a secret word which you can use below to get your points.
