Uncharted 2 and Brutal Legend launch in the US

Tuesday, 13th October 2009 08:16 GMT By Patrick Garratt


It’s passed the Witching Hour all over America, and both Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Brutal Legend are now on sale Stateside.

Naughty Dog boss Evan Wells is pumped enough to be twitpiccing shots of a midnight launch queue in Culver City, while Mr Schafer just dropped word that he’s on his way to his local Gamestop.

The games are two of the most highly anticipated this holiday season, and reviews show why – Uncharted 2 is still the highest-rated PS3 exclusive ever. Brutal Legend’s first scores hit yesterday, but that chances of this not being worth your money are a tad remote.

Buy both. Go nuts. But whatever you go, buy both.

Uncharted 2 releases in mainland Europe tomorrow and the UK this Friday. Brutal Legend is available now in the UK.

    It wouldn’t matter how cool my game was, if I went at midnight to see the sort of people who hang around GAME buying my game I’d still go home and kill myself for encouraging them.

    Obama is not the antichrist, the antichrist is a pure roman. There are thing beyond human control. the temple needs to be build. christain are not terrorits, real christain don’t use weapons.Our weapons are what you people call paranormal or acts of god.

    we die speaking the truth, In fact ever since jesus him self died losts of christains have been killed.

    who ever useis the sword dies by the sword.

    see this stuff is real and in your face

    blackdreamhunk, if you were so ‘enlightened’ you wouldn’t have a personality like stomach acid.

    Not to mention that an enlightened person would never say they are more powerful nor more enlightened than anyone. It’s like a requirement of being enlightened – it’s in the foot notes.

    I’ve never seen holly fire.

    I have seen leaves on fire though, I imagine it’s a lot like that.

    What about this, BDH?

    The man totally plays war games on his Playstation (console), and he is way more powerful , connected, and enlightened than you.

    What was that sound? Just your mind, being BLOWN.

    I like you Barret, you’re going places.

    #25 5 years ago
  26. blackdreamhunk

    lol you wish I was on a priest’s lap, I don’t follow man. I follow the holly ghost. “It’s not by might nore by strength it’s by my spririt says the lord of hosts”.

    Don’t worry you will see for your self. a strong storm is coming a battle is coming. I am just hoping I can be ready in time for the battle a head.

    agin it’s going to be paranormal or acts of god happening.

    there is a huge differnce when man does stuff and when the holly ghost does things.

  27. Galactic_Barret

    I hate religious talk, but you do know that Jesus was Jewish, right BDH?

    Hardcore zealouts are all fools. God wouldn’t discriminate, humans do it enough. I mean, why would the bible specifically say to not kill if there were going to be any sort of religious war?

    In short, you’re insane.

    #27 5 years ago
  28. blackdreamhunk

    well butral lengend is satanic and I am offended.Don’t make religous games.

    I’ve just read of all of this, i wish i had popcorn.

    Brutal Legend = satanic? I personally can’t believe i’ve never seen it before. It all makes sence now.

    ARGH, I want to make a joke, but it’s just a waste of time.

    Ok.. all I can say is WOW.. BDH is prime example of what abortion should remain legal. BDH you contribute NOTHING to this world except ignorance and fear mongering. I can’t believe people like you exist… wait.. yes I can. You have obviously been brainwashed by some crazy parents who probably used snake venom to cure disease. I can only weep for humanity and hope that people with your level of ignorance will kill each other off and better the gene pool

    Uncharted 2 GOTY NO CONTEST

    #42 5 years ago
  43. SticKboy

    Bullshit. AC2 will the game of the year without question, rather than some second rate Tomb Raider clone with shite graphics and weak characterisation.

    #43 5 years ago
  44. The Hindle

    You know who i feel sorry for now that Uncharted 2 is out. Eidios lol, as they have been trying for years to make Lara revelent again, and in comes Naughty Dog who shows them up

    #44 5 years ago
  45. theevilaires

    exactly Hindle

    Fuck you Stickbot

    #45 5 years ago
  46. mescalineeyes

    AC2 will the game of the year without question

    the first time I saw that game running live, I could not believe it. SO beautiful.
    GOTY though? We’ll see :)

  47. DaMan

    I bet Hidle hasn’t played a TR game since 1999. anyway, last I checked Underworld sales were ~2.5 million. rather relevant I’d say.

    and thank god Eidos haven’t turned TR into what Uc is. I’d rather play a masterpiece like Anniversary than a silly game that sells millions because PS3 guys have nothing else to play.

    #47 5 years ago
  48. No_PUDding

    DaMan… The precise problem was that TR Uncderworld bombed.

    I bet it’s LTD sales are nowhere near that high, since it did 200,000 in its openign month (a holiday month).

    #48 5 years ago
  49. DaMan

    wait here, I’ll find a link xD.

    okay, here.

    PS3 guys have nothing else to play


    #51 5 years ago
  52. DaMan

    that was a metaphor, mescaline. and to be honest, that was what happened with the first Uc game.

    #52 5 years ago
  53. The Hindle

    DaMan such a fanboy first of all here is a list of what people who have a Ps3 can play.

    Mgs 4
    Ratchet and clank series
    Resistance series
    Motorstorm series
    Killzone 2
    Wipeout HD
    Demon Souls
    Valkryia chronicles
    Uncharted series
    Future games Ps3 owners can play:

    Gt 5
    Gow 3
    Heavy rain
    White Knight chronicles 1+2
    FF vs 13
    Modnation racers
    Resitance 3
    Syphon filter Ps3 more then likely to come out
    plus what ever else Sony do

    and also i have played all the recent Tomb raider games and have found Uncharted to be better then Underworld and Legend, Anniversary is very good tho

    #53 5 years ago
  54. theevilaires

    great list Hindle :D

    #54 5 years ago
  55. No_PUDding

    DaMan, Yeah Tomb Raider Underworld sold that across the PS3/360/PS2/PC

    That’s not actually impressive.

    #55 5 years ago
  56. DaMan

    @ Hindle my point is that personally I would hate it if TR turned into a game like Uc. out of the recent TRs I enjoyed Legend the least because it was too much of a shooter. my opinion is that TR doesn’t need that stuff.

    @ Pudding it’s not *that* impressive, but for a game like Underworld ( a game that deserves a 8/10 altogether )it’s healthy.

    #56 5 years ago

    We’re going to be giving away four retail copies of Brutal Legend tomorrow. Two for 360 and two for PS3. All you’ll have to do to win is comment on the competition. I’ll give a copy away to whoever posts the 200th, 400th, 600th and 800th comment, alternating format.

    In fact, shall I just post it now?

    #57 5 years ago
  58. No_PUDding

    SORRY, I also forgot the DS, Wii and N-Gage!

    Dude… It’s shit.

    #59 5 years ago
  60. DaMan

    Pudding, N-Gage sold like 5 copies. seriously, it’s a dead platform.

    Wii version sales were very low. let alone PS2, which wasn’t even a complete port. it sold ~1 million on 360 and ~1 on PS3, that’s good enough.

    #60 5 years ago
  61. Patrick Garratt

    OK, I’ll do it now. Sec.

    /puts bets on BDH being the 200th, 400th, 600th and 800th comments following an article about poor PC game sales due to piracy

    #62 5 years ago
  63. The Hindle


    From what i gathered when i was playing Underworld and legend is that the combat was crap. Anniversery was brillaint in that you only spent like 10 per cent shooting the rest was platforming, thats what Tr needs to do is stick to its strenghths.

    Id say there is room for both Uncharted and TR on the market in my opinion anyway but i was just saying before Eidios will be slightly nervous at the reception Uc has got.

    #63 5 years ago
  64. No_PUDding

    DaMan, that would be good enoguh if it weren’t bullshit.

    The platforms that costed the most to develop for return some of the least investment.

    Per platform that is averaging about 350. And since the two HD platforms didn’t make it… Well The slack had to be made up somewhere else.

    Perhaps the N-Gage.

    #64 5 years ago
  65. DaMan

    bullshit? check vgchartz.

    it did ~1 on both consoles like I said, the rest were PC and DS/Wii/PS2 (which were very low).

    “/puts bets on BDH being the 200th, 400th, 600th and 800th comments following an article about poor PC game sales due to piracy”

    I shall take that bet sir, but my money shall be on him blaming it on “pircay”, and I shall win it.
