Uncharted 2: Online Cinema Mode, Film Moving Right Along

We continue to learn more about what we assume is an automatic masterpiece in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, despite the fact that it won't boast offline multiplayer.

There was a lot more involved in that PlayStation Blog interview with Naughty Dog Co-President Evan Wells. First up is something called a "Cinema Mode" for the online multiplayer: it's basically a replay camera that lets you view your recent action from "any angle." Wells described it thusly:

"And of course our Cinema mode allows you to play back any of your matches and view it from ANY angle. You'll also be able to upload those recordings so others can download them and view them on their PS3's. You'll be able to upload screenshots from that mode as well."

So even if they're not making offline multiplayer available, they are working to make the online multiplayer experience as satisfying as humanly possible. Wells concluded the subject by saying that they haven't revealed all the online modes just yet, so we'll keep an eye out for further announcements. Then, Amy H mentioned the Uncharted movie, which has actually been in production for about a year and a half-

"We’re really excited about the development of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune as a movie — we’ve been working with Arad Productions for the last year-and-a-half or so, and couldn’t be happier about their enthusiasm for the project."

A year and a half? Really? So that means they must've started production on the film mere months after the original title came out, and it further means the movie can't be too far off... This is one of those times when the game lends itself perfectly to the big screen, and we'd like to think that Hollywood can't possibly mess it up. But don't underestimate 'em...Hollywood can mess up anything.

The Online Multiplayer is pretty fun and Im eager to see what other modes they will have available. But regarding the movie...for some reason I envision them using Vince Vaughn as Drake. He may not be the best actor, but he is very witty and he is probably the only one that can emulate the way Drake talks to himself during shootouts.

Nah, I hope they get Ben Stiller to play Drake!

Kidding. That would suck.

The captain from Firefly would be good, I think. Vince Vaughn would be awful. Drake, though, is such a unique character, I'm just not sure who would get it right...

Nathan Fillion is the perfect choice for Drake.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune the game is practically a movie already. No, I'm not saying it's full of long cutscenes, I just mean in terms of the style and presentation. They really captured the feeling of playing an action movie better than any other game I have ever played.

But while it's probably better material for a movie adaption than most games, I remain skeptical. As a game, the fact that it felt like playing a movie made it unique and interesting. As a movie those same attributes make it...generic. I can easily see this becoming another forgetable summer action movie. Not really bad, but not really good either.

Well, we'll see.

imdb says the movie is due out in 2011 but that is all it says about it. I hope they don't mess this one up since the first game's story was pretty much a movie.

But if it's been in the works that long wouldn't they have named the actor for Drake by now? Something's outta whack.

CHRISTIAN BALE AS DRAKE.........................................................................................no only joking

Uh I don't really know - as long as they act good, I'm alright with it. With special effects and the makeup artists these days you can make anyone look into a fantasy.

I dont think it is a smart move to put this game into a movie. I mean the game feels like a popcorn movie, and that was gread. But as a movie I dont see how it would be anything special!
But I would love to be wrong about this!!

With over 90mins of cutscenes within the game it's a movie itself.

This game is gonna be great, i can't wait.

About the movie im also excited, i think it can be great, on the flip side it could be awful. It really will boil down to casting, Elena and Drake in particular need to fit the personality and looks and still be able to perform the stunts. I know all about stunt doubles but the fact that the voice actors did all the motion capture for the game tells me that starting with Drake, the voice actor for him could pull off the part, not to mention they look similiar. I feel the same about Hayter and MGS.

Didnt get the first one but im really starting to consider buying this one or at least trying it out after seeing the E3 demo. It looks even better than MGS4 and Killzone IMO
