According to the latest press release by Sony Uncharted 3’s eagerly awaited beta has been played by over 1.5 million players. It seems the Playstation Network hack has done nothing to dampen the beta’s release, which seems to have happily satiated many a players appitite for Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception.
Patrick Seybold, Sr. Director of Corporate Communications at SCEA had this to say in the press release:
“According to the latest NPD report, PlayStation continues to see
growth in software with a strong demand for exclusive PlayStation 3
franchise titles. The recently launched inFAMOUS 2 was the #1 software
SKU in June. In addition, momentum is accelerating with the upcoming
fall releases of Resistance 3 and UNCHARTED 3 on the horizon. This
week the UNCHARTED 3 multiplayer beta surpassed 1.5 million unique
players, demonstrating the strength of the PlayStation platform and
consumers’ interest in gaming experiences that combine rich stories,
challenging gameplay, and exhilarating 3D immersion.”
We’ll see if Drakes Deception will be able to pull off the same impressive trick come release time or whether the PSN hack has seriously damaged Sony’s marketability.
