Naughty Dog co-presidents Evan Wells and Christophe Balestra appeared on Jimmy Fallon overnight to show off Uncharted 3 after previous showings of Gears 3 and MW3 earlier this week. The clip shows the latter part of the E3 demo shown during the Sony press conference last week at E3. And yes, there’s more screaming. Watch it below the break. Battlefield 3′s up tonight.
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception launches in the US on November 1 for PS3.

Naughty Dog co-boss Christophe Balestra’s claimed Uncharted 2 almost maxes out PS3′s “power”.
“On PlayStation 3 for our first game, we were using probably only 30 percent of the power of the Cell, and this time we’re getting close to 100 percent of using the power of the PS3,” he said, talking in two making-of movies you can see after the break.
That’s it, then. Uncharted 2 is as good as PS3′s going to get. May as well bin it now, then.
We’re joking. Watch the movies for yourself.

Christophe Balestra, co-president of Naughty Dog, has just tweeted that the multiplayer Beta for Uncharted 2 is now available on PSN.
That’s grand news there, and apparently, the game is really-really good, because according to Geoff Keighley, you’re going to be fucking “blown away”.
Go now to your living room, bedroom, attic, cellar, sex-dungeon, or where ever you have your PS3 hooked up and get to downloading now.

Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra has just tweeted that Uncharted 2 does not require an install on PS3.
Here’s the full tweet:
“Uncharted 2 does not require any install.”
This was apparently an attempt to clear up any confusion over the game’s boxart, which included a typo claiming that a mandatory 1.7Gb install was required to play the game.
Glad that’s been cleared up.

In an interview with Edge, Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra said that this time round, the Uncharted: Among Thieves team has something prove in the environment department.
“We wanted a wide range of environments this time,” explains Balestra. “We wanted to show this wasn’t just a jungle game.”
According to the article, Among Thieves looked anything but:
And, from what we’ve seen, the team has succeeded in this aim: alongside ice caverns and frozen mountainsides, we’re shown a real variety of environments, from lush indoor spaces filled with gold leaf and bright colours, to an opulent train with blood red curtains and swinging brass lights, and a desolate Nepalese monastery clinging to the side of a cliff.
