Uncharted 3 arriving November 1, 2011

Naughty Dog drops release date for upcoming adventure title; late night live demo appearance scheduled for Monday.

Earlier this week, after months of wild speculation, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception was officially announced with a broad "late 2011" release window. Now, gamers thirsting for the next Nathan Drake adventure have a date to circle on their calendars.

Tonight at the 2010 Video Game Awards, a new trailer for Drake's Deception was shown, which ultimately revealed a release date of November 1, 2011, for the title. The game will arrive, like the two before it, exclusively on the PlayStation 3.

Nathan Drake's next adventure will arrive in time for Thanksgiving.

Details surrounding the game's narrative remain largely murky. However, what is known is that it will focus on the relationship between Drake and his mentor Victor "Sully" Sullivan. This time around, a search for a lost city will take the wily adventurer to the Arabian Peninsula and its bleak Empty Quarter.

Drake's Deception will also boast a number of additional features its predecessor lacked. The title will include expanded multiplayer and co-op modes, improved reverse climbing, stereoscopic 3D capability out of the box, new stealth maneuvers, the ability to engage multiple enemies in melee combat, and the power to shoot multiple enemies at once. Additionally, as an earlier rumor stated, the game will be set largely in the desert.

The game will debut alongside the first novel based on the series, Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth but not the film based on the series. That project, directed by David O. Russell and starring Mark Wahlberg, is set to shoot next summer.

Additionally, gamers eager to see more of Drake's Deception can expect to catch a live demo of the title on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Monday, December 13. For more on the franchise's most recent entry, check out GameSpot's review of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.

@10679 First off the Original Playstation had the same controller design that the current PS3 with only new features to make a difference. As for the Xbox's controller I remember that IGN called it blunder of the year. Citing its awkward design. The Kinnect is really a rip off of the Eye Toy. Who had HDMI first? Who had a HD Player first? Where's the Blu Ray? Blue Tooth, internet browser? That's where the real Ideas are. Thinking towards the future.

@10679 I'm not going to comment on most of what you say because it's mostly opinion and I try not to argue opinion. But what i will say, in my professional opinion (I have a masters degree in both computer engineering and computer science if that means anything to you)... The reason PC games look better is not the graphics card... okay it SORTA is... the GPU on the graphics card (the highest end ones) are pretty awesome. But the main reason that PC games LOOK better is that it can store WAY more information on the hard drive, the cache, and the RAM... this makes for faster processing and smother pictures, a.k.a faster Frames Per Second (FPS), which of course your eyes and brain interpret as a better looking picture although technically it's really not that much better. But that is only one edge that cpu's have over consoles. Most consoles with dedicated RAM, ROM, CPUs (9 in the PS3, 2 in the 360) HDD, and GPU's make development and ingenuity way easier on consoles. (not saying your WRONG, just not 100% correct... then again, i only develop games for the ipod, ipad, smart phones etc... so my expertise in that field is limited I'll admit...)

Really i'm not a sony fanboy or anything but i just wanted to point out that they really aren't making any plans for Xbox 360 exclusives except for GOW 3 I mean they're making sequels to some of PS3's best exclusives like Kill Zone, Uncharted, Litle Big Planet, etc... but there are some good Xbox 360/PS3 games coming out like Dead Space 2, Portal 2, and Mass Effect maybe Bullet Storm it depends on what it gets in the review I mean with Xbox 360/ PS3 games Xbox 360 owners will still have games to get unlike the Wii which has slightly good games coming out like every 4 months or so

Wow, makes you wish they made GT5, they somehow seem to know to the DAY that this game will be out in 11 months. Thats some major skill. So nothing is going to delay it.

Oh yeah crysis is still alot better than any of the games above. The new graphics card for pc still push them quite a bit for performance. Crysis is not the only good looking game. Metro 2033 on max is just as good as crysis and there is flying sim game that looks as good as crysis. The only reason pc is not doing well because you can pirate them which can't do consoles without risking destroying your machine. Thats the only reason why developers tend to favor consoles. No console games will ever come close to pc in terms of graphics. Its just impossible.

@MEDzZ3RO "One last thing. I notice lower down you're speaking about "ripping off" when as you should know neither Microsoft or Sony are major pioneers of the gaming controller . It's not "ripping off" because if fps games didn't "rip off" Wolfenstein, Doom, Quake, Goldeneye007..etc... the genre wouldn't evolve or improve year on year. This advancement is key to human evolvement; we arguably "ripped off" our ancestors too build houses and the rest; if we didn't it would still be caves." I know that but there sony fanboys who will say that sony are mastermind when it comes to innovation and creating unique franchises. "No denying though that a game being on DVD or bluray won't really effect the graphics on a PC game but it does help on console when developpers want their game to fit onto one disc." Not its the same on consoles . Multiplatform games tend to look better on 360 which uses a dvd therefore blu ray is useless for gaming . Its provides advantage foor people who are lazy to get up to change disks. "Crysis is 3 years old and still hasn't been bettered.A high-end gaming PC certainly has alot more power then any console but there's no software to use that power.Crysis looks great but isn't that far ahead of Killzone 3, God Of War 3, Gran Turismo 5 or Gears Of War 3 despite all that extra power."

@MEDzZ3RO "highly doubt the 2 years losses have been as significant as most people make out. Not forgetting the consoles they sold at a loss were selling when the PS3 had least sales; 1 million in the first year." Actually it was said long time ago tha tthe ps3 loss was so big that it used up all the profits the ps2 made. If i also remember correctly 16000 people were fired. wages were freezed and had to restructure their company. That to me is a pretty big loss. If it wasn't for the slim the ps3 would have been dead. "You can't try and separate the PC from the consoles when talking about games on each system. For the majority of people the PC isn't their primary gaming platform but for some it is; hence why certain PC manufacturers tailor computers for the job. The fact is, neither Gears nor Left 4 Dead or even Mass Effect are Xbox 360 exclusives. They are Microsoft exclusives but not on one singular platform; you can say that they are Xbox 360 and PC exclusives together." Yeah you can . LFD2 is not a xbox 360 exclusive but a console exclusive as it is the only console hat has the game. Pc doesn't count because its not a console. Its only considered an xbox 360 exclusives if it was only released on 360 and nothing else.

For the majority of people the PC isn't their primary gaming platform but for some it is; hence why certain PC manufacturers tailor computers for the job. The fact is, neither Gears nor Left 4 Dead or even Mass Effect are Xbox 360 exclusives. They are Microsoft exclusives but not on one singular platform; you can say that they are Xbox 360 and PC exclusives together. Sales and losing money aren't identical; you were talking about sales when you stated Sony were last in this "race". Sony did indeed make losses until late 2008, early 2009 but the PS2 has always been giving constant profits in this period as have PS3 exclusives linked to Sony. There profits were so high with the PS2 and elsewhere in separate markets (computing, TVs,Bluray..etc..) I highly doubt the 2 years losses have been as significant as most people make out. Not forgetting the consoles they sold at a loss were selling when the PS3 had least sales; 1 million in the first year. You're questioning the accuracy of VGchartz figures?; they are the ones who released the accurate sales figures for both GT5 and Move contrary to the shipment figures Sony released. Say or think as you wish but does this effect me or you in any way what so ever?, no. In the coming years one of us will be proven right and the other won't; lets leave it at that, this conversation isn't going anywhere.

@10679, lol. We argued with each other 4 months is a row. I don't want to continue this argument because I have do other important things. I want to clear things up with you. One, I am not a Sony fanboy, I'm a Nintendo fan which I been in my entire life so far. Second, why it seems that I defend PS3 a lot is because I hate stupid Xbox 360 fanboys. Xbox 360 fanboys annoyed me so much when I first joined Gamespot. And ruined things for me. Third, I don't like my government too because they among themselves and don't get many important things done but my country doesn't deserve the blames that you give. Fourth, please stop defend Xbox 360 in a Sony article because you'll create more arguments and waste people's time. Bye. :)

@Serious "Always steal ideas they never innovate or create new genres and for that reason Xbox will fail ultimately. As games need more and more space and the DVD Xbox can't keep up with the Blu ray Playstation for storage more " So you are saying that sony is more innovative than microsoft lol. First of all the back buttons on sony controller is copy of xbox controller which microsft copied of sega dreamcast controller. Secondly the move is an accurate will knock off. Lets to move what you call innovative gaming franchise. Out the list you mention , i shall use unchartered. How is that game creative when is a copy of tomb raider and gears of war. According to your theory it would suggest that they copied of other franchise. Ther reason why those franchises haven't jumped shipped is because they are either loyal to sony or sony paid them enough money to stick with them. " As games need more and more space and the DVD Xbox can't keep up with the Blu ray Playstation for storage more " If thats true then why pc games are leap ahead in graphics compared to ps3 when it uses DVD. According to your theory having more space on one disk means better looking game which means ps3 is more powerful than pc,

@Ex-DarkBlade "Second, you have a problem of making things up. My icon tells what I like Pokemon and Dragonball z" Really. this is what you said prior to this post: "Ex-DarkBlade Posted Dec 15, 2010 9:45 pm GMT @10679, a fanboy is a complete idoit that would say anything to make a system to look better, I am not one of them. I defend all system from being trolled against. And my icon picture has a awesome Pikachu, if I was a Sony fanboy, then why would I have a Pikachu as my icon picture." You tell from what you wrote how i made things up . " 10679, you said yourself that you don't like America, then why do you defend Xbox 360?" Yea i did say that. I hate certain aspect of america but not all. I may hate the government and the people who support the government but that doesn't mean i should hate all american products. I like xbox360 for the simple fact that its good product especially for entertainment. Is there something wrong with that lol

@MEDzZ3RO "Company yes, system no. You forget that although PC isn't part of the console market it is part of the larger picture that the console market falls into: the gaming market." You are forgetting that in the gaming world there are only two markets. One being the console market and the other PC market. Therefore the games that appaear on both xbox360 and pc are not xbox 360 exclusives but a console exclusives because pc is not a console but instead its an entity on its own. We all know when the ps3 came out , it was struggling really bad and that sony was losing alot of money. The ps3 only started to do well was when the slim came out and that only lasted a year. Secondly sony never releases actual sales figures to anyone. They always release shipped figures which shipped figures to retailers. My guess thats because sony actual sales figures to consumers and that great compared to their shipped to retail figures. Therefore those figures that the site has its not very accurate.

@10679. Let me be clear, I said It's nice to be a PS3 owner next year because loads of exclusives. I never said that Xbox 360 sucks because it got only Gears and Forza. And besides Xbox 360 has more than Forza and Gears. If I did trash Xbox 360, then I did it in a fit of anger caused by the annoying people. I have nothing against Xbox 360. Second, you have a problem of making things up. My icon tells what I like Pokemon and Dragonball z. If you really think that I'm a Sony fanboy then check my games list and the unions I joined. Most of my games are Nintendo games. I like all the systems, but what I care about the most are the games. 10679, you said yourself that you don't like America, then why do you defend Xbox 360? I know you're going to making things up or add more things into this argument, just give a two sentence answer or just ignore me. Besides, I no longer have the extra time to argue with you anymore. Enjoy your life and your future gaming days.

@10679 The word "fanboy" is overused and often not correctly.Fanboy as a word means someone who's a fan of something but when you put something behind the word it suggest that's all they use or like. That's not true, I have all 3 systems and use them on a regular basis. Exclusives is another word that's misunderstood; Gears is exclusive to both PC and 360; regardless of platform it's not an exclusive to one singular system. Company yes, system no. You forget that although PC isn't part of the console market it is part of the larger picture that the console market falls into: the gaming market. You should look at this respectable source about hardware sales year by year: http://www.vgchartz.com/hw_annual_summary.php Vgchartz doesn't lie and has proven accurate in many reports.They take into account actual sales over shipments; they did it woth Move recently.Remember PS3 is one year older in the current market but sales figures would suggest it was only a few months behind.

@Ex-DarkBlade "a fanboy is a complete idoit that would say anything to make a system to look better" Thats funny especially coming from a person in denial.You have definetly said those kind of things. If i remember correctly you have said that the ps3 will be better than xbox360 next year because of exclusives. You also have said something along the lines of xbox won't be that great next year because they only have exclusives like gears of war and forza. Please save your lies to someone who actually believes you. " And my icon picture has a awesome Pikachu, if I was a Sony fanboy, then why would I have a Pikachu as my icon picture." Really lol. I would have believed you earlier but your recent response was a dead giveaway . So you are saying that as long as a person uses gaming pics that does not belong to sony franchises then they are not sony fanboys regardless of what they say .. Please stop as you are giving sony brand a bad name XD :P

@Ex-DarkBlade The way you post makes you look like one. I didn't say sony fanboys are the only fault . I know the xbox fanboys are just as guilty. I have and still reading all the other post made in this thread. Have you stop to think that they may not like the game as much as you do . Anyways i am glad this game is coming out. It gives th emotive to use my ps3 as it is collecting dust atm. Loved the first two games and can't wait for part three.

@MEDzZ3RO "again exclusives sell systems)" True but they don't have the same effect as the 360 where the exclusives on 360 sell more systems than the 360 . Thats is why the 360 doesn't need many exclusives to be ahead of the ps3. Halo and Gears sell the 360; it's proven by their releases.Halo is the only real game Microsoft has; PC has most of the others. You are forgetting that PC is not part of the console market therefore the games that come on both 360 and pc are still regarded as 360 console exclusive. Get your facts straight. Also sony never releases actually sales figures . They only tell shipped figures. I am guessing thats because its the only way that makes look like they are selling lol.

10679

@Ex-DarkBlade What about teh sony fanboys such as yourself, MEDzZ3RO, Serious and many . You guys are just a bad as the xbox fanboys who talk nothing but nonsense . @MEDzZ3RO " the PS3 has outsold the 360 each year" You are actually are wrong. The only time the ps3 outsold xbox360 was when sony released the slim. Thats the only time when sony actually caught and narrowed the gap. Apart from that the 360 has been outselling g it. I am sure you have seen the post where it stated that 360 sold about 8ook units more than the ps3 during the month of November. Even in the first two weeks of december the 360 was ahead in terms of sales.

Hmm strange that I come to an Uncharted 3 post and people are going off about how "great" the 360. Not really one to slam either Sony or Microsoft because I personally like both systems but I still stand behind the PS3. Sure theres a handful of great exclusives but big deal. Look at some of the upcoming exclusives for the PS3, and look at how games are starting to come to the PS3. Say what you will about your beloved 360 but you just sound biased and sore that your losing exclusives. So yes you may always have Halo, Gears, and Left 4 Dead (personal favorite of mine); but I will always have Little Big Planet, Killzone, Socom, Uncharted, and God of War. Feel free to name so more 360 exclusives, but I'm very content and happy with my so called "poor exclusives" or whatever it is you want to call it. Anyways definately looking forward to playing this game although my PS3 might burn to death from me playing it non stop during the month of November between Skyrim and Uncharted lol.

@tastetheacidmil Halo and Gears sell the 360; it's proven by their releases.Halo is the only real game Microsoft has; PC has most of the others and most are arriving on PS3 in the foreseeable future. You do realise on a year by year bases the Xbox 360 is last?, It was released a year or so before the PS3.Since 2008 which is evidently the same year Sony started getting more top rated exclusives (proof again exclusives sell systems) the PS3 has outsold the 360 each year.People forget that the PS2 is still selling considerably today and the PSP is having moderate sales. In "Gaming land" so to speak, Sony is second; not that it really matters. The PS1 and PS2 sold because they offered a huge number of exclusives whilst the Xbox had just a handful; this trend started again 2 years ago since the PS3s price dropped and Sony improved dev kits.

@Serious, is that why ps3 is last place still? say what you want about 360 its exclusives own all and any ps3 exclusives, storage isint a problem because devs still get the games out, your deluded in thinking all 360 has is gears and halo, but the funny thing all ms needs is one game to complelty criple the competition and sony needs a dozen

some years ago Microsoft got a lot of old sony exclusive franchises to jump ship and go multi plalform. (Final Fantasy, GTA, ) Sony's answer to that. Make new francise exclusives that can't jump ship. And the PS3 exclusives keep a comin' Resistance 3, Killzone 3, Uncharted 3, Socom 4, Infamous 2, LBP 2, and DC online. And yet I keep hearing Xbox fanboys saying where are the game? Or bragging about Halo and Gears. The only exclusives Xbox has that are worth playing. See Bill Gate and co. Always steal ideas they never innovate or create new genres and for that reason Xbox will fail ultimately. As games need more and more space and the DVD Xbox can't keep up with the Blu ray Playstation for storage more Xbox fans will become disillusioned with there system of choice.

@BURGERgio who's we? do you work for a game publisher? lol as stated by several people, Microsoft has no contract with the publishers at Bioware, EA does. Where as Naughty Dog has one with Sony. I do however understand that it sucks that the 360 cant enjoy such and amazing series. Your best bet is to hit up craigslist and find a used one cheap.

@BURGERgio ............ As it is stated in the previous comment....xbox 360 can't handle PS3 games because of the disc media....PS3 is using a Blu-ray disc...and 360 is using a DVD....if any PS3 exclusive came out for the 360....they'll have to make it 3-disc game (at least)

@BURGERgio I have a question in regards to that comment you posted....if the Uncharted Franchise wasn't receiving all the praise it has been getting since the sequel's launch, would you still have that opinion that the game should also be on the 360?? 360 didn't give Sony Mass Effect 2, that was all thanks to EA and their decisions made with the developer Bioware so what's your complaint...if you honestly want the game then just get a PS3 to go along with your 360!!
