Uncharted 2 and The Tale of Success

February 22, 2010Written by Thomas Williams

When Naughty Dog first released footage of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves back at the Spike TV Video Game Awards in late 2008, we knew it was going to be something special. How special, you ask? Sony has released some official numbers, and you’d better be ready to pick your jaw up off the ground.

Thanks to Scott Rohde, VP of Product Development at SCEA, we know that Uncharted 2 has sold over 3.5 Million Copies worldwide, which happens to make it the fastest selling first-party game ever on the PS3. It has an online user base of over 1.5 million players–and get this–has won over 150 Industry awards, including the Annual Interactive Achievement Award for Game of the Year.

I think it’s safe to say that Naughty Dog is now one of the most highly regarded and respected developers out there today. Uncharted 1 and 2 are some of the best games on the PlayStation 3. Look at the upgrade from the first game to the second–it’s safe to say that Naughty Dog is going to top what they did with Among Thieves and blow us and the industry away once again when they finally show Uncharted 3 to the world.

Uncharted 2 deserves every award and copy that it sells. If you haven’t picked up the game yet, what are you waiting for? You need proof? Just read our review, as it is one of the chosen few games that have received the honorable ranking of Editor’s Choice at PlayStation LifeStyle. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves is one of the best games on the PS3, if not the best. Make sure you don’t miss out!
