Ooh, a little bit of K&L type of MP going on ;)

(lol at song)

not happy about the addition of a sprint button, doesn't seem necessary when you have the U2 method where you run faster based on the situation, everything else seems like nice changes and additions. as long as it keeps it's verticality and platforming (which it looks like it is) in amongst the shooting, it should still feel like a unique take on a cover based shooter just like U2. customisation of weapons and appearance should help it appeal to more people. and generally i think they're onto another winner.

looks great too and has some sahweet animations.

cool song.

Very nice, hopefully we can change face types too lol
Anyways, I am gonna make sure to get in the beta.

Maybe some kill streak rewards?

Looks great! Hopefully it will hold me on multiplayer longer than U2, also it looks like ND went to PD for choice of song GOOD STUFF!

I've heard U2 has some great MP but I haven't even played MP yet. I'll have to start doing that this week so I can get a better feel for what I'm seeing here.

the MP in uncharted 2 was a pretty major letdown for me and most of my friends, it just got old very quickly and the shooting felt very light and had no sense of impact. The co-op MP stuff was pretty fun but the team vs team stuff didn't play well at all imo.

Graphics look outstanding and I like the map design going on, just wish the combat felt better, more intense.

I thought the MP was pretty fun, but lacked content to keeo you going.
But that was ND's first MP take to Uncharted series so you have to give them credit for trying.

With so much experience from U2 and what fans what, U3 should be much better.

Awesome. PS plus members will get beta too. ND did say they are they want U3 to be one of the best online games as well

i read it also comes with infamous 2 (an insta-buy in itself) i just hope that is true this time, unlike the socom beta that was supposed to come with killzone 3 but didn't in the UK.

That sounds too good to be true.

That plane looks fantastic. I mean, the whole thing does really, but the plane looked fuckin great. Also, this looks like a really cool way to do MP.

I know that I am in the minority on this one, but I really did not care too much for the multiplayer on U2; and really do not think I am going to care much for the multiplayer on U3.

It may be just me, but Uncharted always feels like one of those games where multiplayer is not really a good fit - and then the experience of playing it, is not something that is going to take you away for more than a week or two, from the multiplayer of the juggernauts in the multiplayer arena.

Honestly, ask yourself. This fall are you going to be playing more Uncharted 3 multiplayer, or more Battlefield 3, or Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer? I think for the vast majority of gamers, the question answers itself, and really wish that in games like this, all the resources spent on creating multiplayer, went into making the single player experience better, or longer (or both). And yes as awesome as the Uncharted single player experiences have been (U2 was GOTY, for crying out loud), there is always room for improvement.

As it stands this fall, even second tier multiplayer titles, like Rage and Gears 3, are likely to have far more gamers, for far longer, playing in the multiplay, than U3 - not a slag off against U3, just that for some reasons, shooters and multiplay go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly. And when you have no less than four AAA, multiplayer shooters, from four of the best development studios in the industry at delivering multiplayer fun, all hitting the market at once, that simply does not leave room for an action-adventure game to ply it's hand at multiplay, and expect to walk away with a respectable audience to stick around for that, after they have wrapped up playing probably the best single play, action campaigns all year. And not to be forgotten, but Batman: Arkham City, another AAA action-adventure game, itself is showing up with multiplay in tow around the same time as U3. Talk about cannibalizing the remainder of the multiplayer audience who would turn their backs on all those shooters in favor of action-adventure multiplay. And for the record, I wish Arkham City would eschew multiplayer as well, in favor of spending the resources to make the single player campaign better.

Troll troll is troll. Not even going to bother to bait it, no-one else should either :)

Anyway, that looked amazing. Best console graphics quite easily, and this is only multiplayer!! Loved the look of those vehicle sections too, could bring an interesting twist to the gameplay. If it's anything like the 2nd - which it looks to be improving on, somehow - then it will be the GOTY frontrunner. Looking forward to this more than any other game on any platform. Maybe except the Last Guardian but I'd like to see more of that.

I am anot against character customisation. but when it comes to weapon customisation for me it's just a way not to play with every weapons in a shooter. I mean when you don't have a particular stat abnout a weapon it just forces you to use the " best ones , and more accurate one ". What I liked about Uncharted 2 is that you could use any weapons without worrying about the effects it had. I used every weapons , from the AK 47 to the fall to the sniper rifles. but when it comes to customize your own weapon with adding things like laser sights ( which for exemple in Socom confrontation was dumb because you could be spotted when pointing the laser anywhere and preventing the nnemy from going in an area ).
Like the weapons in Killzone, it just says in the description how effective it is but you don't have those stupid jauge comparing each weapons and it's like putting a useless weapon in the game which is far weaker than the others and no one will use it.

I m hyped about the new boosters though. I just hope they won't put things like the glass jaw and others boosters that make you see the opposite team that just led to camping games.

I m really interested in the " scenaristic MP games " if it's like KZ3 operation mode I' m in.

Probably non of them, the reason why I might be interested in U3 is because its 3rd person and it has this dynamic gameplay from running to platforming around the level, but most of all its 3rd person which I like.

MW3 is COD, COD is a killstreak based MP, dont be surprised if its shit like MW2 and Black Ops, which I think it will, but fans will eat the hype and get it as usual and then later on start bitching how cheap it is, how laggy it is how glitches are being used to their advanatge (carepackages).

BF3, well its BF, that will be fun for those who are into that sort of thing.

For me, 3rd person shooter will always be better than first person, I like to see my character on the screen.

PS. Good thing they added sprint.

Now that's how you make a trailer. I see they took some inspiration from the Assassin's Creed trailers. Still don't know. Seems too similar to Uncharted 2 multiplayer. Have to wait and see.

It does look as if this is going to take the crown back off the 360 & Crysis 2!

yea compared to the Gears 3 beta this doesn't look that hot graphically... there's a desert map in the Gears 3 beta and it looks so lively, with dynamic dust-storms, really great lighting and motion blur. The desert map in this game looks terrible, there is nothing moving in the environment except for the wind balloon on the control tower. Very disappointing

After weatching Gears 3 beta videos at GT i have to say U3 completely blows it away. I loved the first Gears and played it like crazy, i even played Gears 2 a lot but way less then the first one, i simply didn't find it as good anymore. Once you play U2 with all the climbing, jumping and stuff like that, Gears feels so limited and boring. U3 looks a really big step compared to U2, i simply don't see how Gears 3 can compete with it but well taste is different.

They never held the crown in the first place... Killzone 3/UC2 and more look much better and they're actually HD.

This blows everything else away, especially any games based on UE3 (Looking at you, gears)
