Uncharted 3 set for fall 2011 - Retail Radar

E3 2010: French Amazon site taking preorders for next installment in Sony's adventure series with a Halloween launch date.

Last year's Sony E3 press conference was somewhat anticlimactic, as the electronics giant's major announcements--the PSP Go and the motion-sensing PlayStation 3 Move controller--both leaked before the show began. The company has done a better job of plugging leaks for this year's press event, although it may have missed one just hours before the show kicks off.

If you want Uncharted 3 so badly you'll buy it not just sight unseen but game unannounced, Amazon.fr has a deal for you.

The French Web site of retailer Amazon has a PlayStation 3 product page up for Uncharted 3, with an October 31, 2011, date attached. Unfortunately, the page offers no further details about the title.

While not official, a third Uncharted game is a no-brainer for Sony. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was critically hailed, selling nearly 3 million copies in a matter of months and dominating the Interactive Achievement Awards and Game Developers Choice Awards. On top of that, Sony also has an Uncharted feature film in the works, with I Heart Huckabees director David O. Russell reportedly considered for the director's chair.

For more on Sony's 2010 E3 press conference--and potentially for something official on Uncharted 3--be sure to follow GameSpot's live streaming presentation of the show.

I would do almost anything to play a copy of Uncharted 3 right now. With KOTOR puttering out somehow, Uncharted has easily become my favorite franchise ever-hands down.

BPoole96 said: "Nice! Killzone 3 and Uncharted 3 in the same year again! 2011 will be a great year for games!" @BPoole96 Yeah, and don't forget about Resistance 3, Motorstorm 3, Infamous 2, Little Big Planet 2, Socom 4, Last Guardian, and Twisted Metal. It has been claimed many times that "this is the year of the PS3", Next year it will really be undeniably true, that lineup of exclusives is nothing short of insane. Theres no way anyone can convince me the PS4 isn't coming in 2012 after that 2011 lineup. Hopefully we'll see Final Fantasy Versus XIII next year as well..even know I won't be able to afford all of these games.

They should make it when nathan drake is in his 40's and is devorced with Elana and she gets kidnapped and nathan goes on a journey to save her but then he ends up going on some sort of journey also should be rated M.

Im hoping UC3 is a prequel! I wana see some of Nate's darker past with Sully! Sully needs a bigger part "Goddamit!"

No way that date will stick. Just to know it's in the works is good enough.

There does not need to be co-op for the sp campaign. Jesus. PLEASE do not ruin an outstanding SP by having Nate escort some retarded kid or something and you get to "play as little Johnny!!!! with you and a friend for insane co-op experience!!". Keep it the way it was in Among Thieves. ND wants to do something with co-op I hope they refine it separately from the single player. And johny300, I wouldn't worry about them not having enough time to polish the game and make it feel as grand as the second one. Between the first and second there was only two years (well technically a month shy of being two years apart but close enough) as well and look how it turned out.

Too soon im afraid they wont have time to polish the game and make it epic.

@conkerratchet Yes. Get it. The second one had a far grander scale, but the best things about the second game were started in the first. Loved the story, graphics are still phenomenal (even if they aren't quite AS good as 2, they're still better than a lot of the games out there), voice acting is just as good and combat didn't change much from 1 to 2. And if nothing else, you should play it just for the back story... and Sully. He's barely in the second game, but he's all sorts of awesome.

@conkerratchet well i got both of them and i enjoyed both even know the first one doesnt have a great graphics like the second one, but it has a pretty good story too.. i really enjoyed it

Ok.... I doubt this, because I think that is a lie. October 31, 2011?? They were just guessing, everyone!! There IS an Uncharted 3. And yes, I played Uncharted 2, and it was AWESOME. I have it, but I don't have the first one. Should I check it out?

Uncharted 3 has a very good chance to come out on ps3 in the fall of 2011 but i just wish they would confirm it already

This was a blast but I still prefer first Uncharted game. Drakes Fortune should get same scores at the time it came out.

Very excited, replaying this game again, and for good reason. Uncharted 2 flows very smoothly and everything else compliments it. Uncharted 3 will be amazing I hope!

come on Sony make Uncharted 3 official already

We know an Uncharted 3 is a given. We also know that it's a big enough title that they wouldn't let its initial announcement be like this. No, when they're ready to announce it, it will be at a conference or convention or something like that, with an epic trailer and much fanfare. I'm not going to let this here get me all excited; I'll wait for the OFFICIAL announcement. 8)

Oh come on, this is crazy. If they were even planning a new Uncharted and revealing it now.. they would have put it on their conference. This does not qualify as news. Wait for real proof.

I can't see them topping Uncharted 2 but I'll look forward to this regardless.

Fix the stealth and this might be one of the PS3's best titles.

I dont know how they are going to top UC2. Maybe allow co-op for the sp campaign?

A no brainer indeed. I feel they could refine the shooting mechanics a little more though.. which is a good thing because there is still room for improvment to an already stellar game.

i dont think it would be better than UNCHARED 2 ...........Simply because UNCHARTED 2 is the best game ever,,,,it's perfection........
