  • Leave a comment telling us your favorite Uncharted moment

  • You must be 18 years or older and a resident of the United States or Canada (excluding Puerto Rico and Quebec)

  • Limit 1 entry per person (Only your first comment will be counted)

  • The entry period ends at 12:00PM PT Tuesday, 06/28/2011. This giveaway has ended.

      The best Uncharted moment, for me at least, is when your are in Nepal trying to evade the tank as its blowing the town to bits. It was cinematic AND completely playable(not parsed into a quick time cutscence) not to mention extremely intense and satisfying. Gives me your code!

      I find this one funny, however, because I am sure 90 percent of the people signed up for their free 30 days of PS+ so mostly likely everyone interested will have base access....however....I like things that CRAWL

      Bring it on!

      I was creeping up on the bad guys in the street warfare level in Uncharted 2, only to have said bad guys notice me and start laying down suppressive fire. I knee jerk hit the fire button from behind cover, Drake blind fires his D-EAGLE 50 Cal and splits the wig of bad guy #2.

      any serious moment involving Elena. she's surprisingly grounded for the "love object" of the Uncharted games, and you get the impression that if she were real, you'd genuinely like her. when she gets badly hurt near the end of Uncharted 2, you feel it more because you've got so much invested in her.

      In Uncharted I, when the bad guy opened that sarcophagus and got killed for his greed/curiosity. Remembered me of that hauntingly suspenseful scene from the all-time-classic flick "Raiders of the Lost Ark". A nice homage, imho! Both, Indy and Nathan own as advernturers and Indy would be proud to have Nathan as his companion. Maybe not, as Nathan would probably snatch him away some ladies ^^

      Uncharted 2 is an amazing game. It has the best graphics of any video game, and looks and feels like a movie. Everything about it is just amazing. The story is very good, the characters are likeable, and the soundtrack is just brilliant.

      Uncharted 3 is bound to be amazing! I am so excited and cannot wait for this game. I own Uncharted: Drakes Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and can't wait to add Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception to my collection. I would love to be able to play this special beta and get a chance to have an early look at this highly anticipated game.

      I would also like to thank Shacknews for giving us this chance to win such an epic experience. I really enjoy your news and give aways.

      Way too many to single out, but here are a couple.
      The scene when Chloe and Nathan meet in the hotel for the first time, and she straddles his body. At that point I knew this game had elevated what's expected in modern video game entertainment. The train sequence of course. The opening vehicle chase sequence in Napal through the alley. Guh, could go on and on. It's the best game of the generation and proves that games can evolve into thrilling and entertaining experiences of anyone.

      Honestly, the first time I played the demo for the first Uncharted. Just the whole cut-scene, story, and then game play (with those luscious tropical graphics) just blew my mind.....

      Sprinting through buildings with a chopper gunning at you and proceeding to have a building collapse WHILE drake is still inside....very intense. The E3 demo with the ship gives off a similar vibe.

      It had to be when you found out that Sulley was still alive in Uncharted 1

      I have to say my favorite moment occurs when you're on the roof tops in Nepal with Chloe and you see the whole city scape. This scene really showed off the Uncharted 3 engine, rendering so far out with tons of detail. I loved the exchanges between Nate and Chloe in this scene, particularly how if the player jumps in the swimming pool on the roof, the characters will use it as a conversation point.

      Loved genuinely laughing at what characters were saying and getting as close to an Indiana Jones experience in a video game.

      All of uncharted 2 was really fun for me, but the ruins falling apart was the coolest thing I've seen in a video game in a while.

      My favourite Uncharted moment is actually the Title screen of both games. Once the Title screen pops in and you can hear the music, I feel like I'm about to embark on a journey, full of adventure. That music gets me everytime, and I never get tired of listening to it.
