Why did I look at this and think "Buddy System"?

The PlayStation Blogcast has revealed that two popular titles will be appearing on the PlayStation Network this Tuesday, 6/26. The games are Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will be available for purchase separately at the price point of $29.99.

If you want to save a few bucks and grab both, they can be bundled together for $39.99, rewarding buyers with ten dollars in savings. However, this isn’t a “special” deal given that the Uncharted Dual Pack (Drake’s Fortune and Among Thieves) goes for the same price at retail. It all comes down to whether your prefer your games in digital or physical form. [SOURCE]

Not sure if this would go here or not, but I was at one of the closing BORDERS bookstores in downtown Boston today and they (to my surprise) had a huge amount of copies of the Uncharted 2 soundtrack.  I had never seen it in that store before so I don't know whether I overlooked it in all the times I was there (even before they were closing) or they pulled all their stock from the back while they are in their last days of selling.

At 70% off it cost me less than 5 dollars.

There were also tons of copies of the God of War III, HALO and inFamous soundtracks there as well.

I suspect that larger BORDERS that aren't already closed may have this too if you're looking to pick one up.  Just thought I'd pass it along since I wandered in not expecting to see anything I was interested in.

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception looks incredible and is sure to blow us away when it releases in November. But what if you have never played the first two Uncharted games? Luckily, we spotted an Uncharted dual pack at E3, along with a whole bunch of PSP bundles.

No prices for the games were shown, but considering the Resistance bundle costs $39.99, it’s likely that it’ll cost the same. Seen at the Sony booth at E3, we noticed and Uncharted dual pack for the PS3. On top of that, PSP users will get 3 dual packs:
  • Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror with Socom U.S. Navy Seals
  • Syphon Filter: Logan’s Shadow with Killzone Liberation
  • Secret Agent Clank with Daxter

The Sony rep told us that they’re planning on releasing the Uncharted dual pack in anticipation for Uncharted 3‘s launch.

The US developed Uncharted 2: Among Thieves went on sale in late 2009 for the PlayStation 3 console and was awarded 10/10 in Official PlayStation Magazine . In the poll of gamers, it beat Metal Gear Solid, Konami’s 1998 PlayStation title and Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII top the honour, in a poll which saw thousands of votes cast.

Strange, that the video game has so struggled to mimic cinema’s Saturday matinee. That rip-roaring yarn, unraveled by boisterous, yet charming men accompanied by tomboyish, yet alluring women has been a Hollywood staple for decades.  It appeals to young and old without discrimination, delighting audiences without overly challenging them, a rollicking recipe seemingly well-suited to the video game’s inherent strengths.

And yet, in the medium’s awkward grasps for maturity - marrying hyper-violence with desaturated post-apocalyptic landscapes - or its celebration of the juvenile - plumbers who defeat foes with hops, set against a kindergarten mural of pea green hills and winking clouds - gaming has failed to take root in this fertile middle ground.

Naughty Dog’s Uncharted series is an anomaly then, a blockbuster happy to talk in the violent verbs dispensed by guns and grenades, but eager to couch them in easy-going, family-friendly nouns. Sure, it calls upon genuine evils for its mythology – blood diamonds and Nazis – but it’s an Indiana Jones rendering of history’s blackness, good and bad painted in broad brushstrokes where heroes remain heroes, and villains remain villains, unambiguous in their roles.
