    I am downloading this when I get home. The videos have been very impressive so I can't wait to try out the gameplay. The fact that we got the demo is a good sign.

    Anyone tried it out yet?

    Isn't that standard? Everything has always been slow on the PS3 for me.

    It's just getting slammed. Everyone wants this demo, but once I got it going it moved pretty fast. Damn, this game is beautiful. One of the best looking games I have seen in a very long time. And sharp at 720P also. Not a blurry texture in sight.

    Played the demo. The game seemed pretty awesome! The environments looked nice (although I am spoiled by Crysis), character models had nice detail, the AI was quite impressive, the camera seems to work well, cover system works well. This is looking like it should be a very very good game. Anybody else play? Any other opinions on this?

    Any tips on how to take the guys out? I finished the demo, but when I got to the area where all the pirates are swarming you, I found it hard taking them out without getting lit up by someone else outside of my eyesight.. and if I even thought of going in for melee, I'd be getting lit up while I was punching. There's no way to run while I'm shooting is there?

    Hey TwinTwist, can you get on the US store from your PS3. I get on the UK store all the time and download demos not available here. The Uncharted demo for UK will be available NOV22, but if you can get to the US PSN, you can get it from that store.

    Yeah the region encoded the demo. Sorry guys, kinda lame if you ask me.


    I downloaded it from work yesterday so it would be installed when I got home. Hooray for remote play!!! Wasn't too slow considering it was most definately during the time the server was getting slammed.

    I am very impressed with how it looked first of all. Lots of detail and good draw distance, I was shooting guys that were practically specs they were so far away.

    I feel like Drake moves realistically, but still climbs and jumps and gets around with ease. I was quite impressed with the controls and had a blast exploring and getting into shoot outs. I enjoyed the details, like when the grenade went off next to me, my ears rang.

    As long as the gameplay last longer than 7 hours, this game should do well.

    Its a demo, why region encode it? Seems contrary to the point of a demo.

    disorienting at first, but I definitely got used to it. So can he only walk and shoot, or can he shoot while running. I was getting lit up while I was trying to stafe and shoot like a turtle.

    I love details like his clothes getting wet. Especially when you walk into water knee deep and it only gets wet up to his knees!
