Uncharted 2 Fortune Hunter Giveaway: PSXE Treasure Hunt!

Final Update: Yep, that's it.  The last treasure chest has been found, which means the contest is over.  We will be posting up a concluding article later to sum up, and list the names (just first name and last initial) of the lucky winners.  But stay tuned...you never know when another giveaway of some kind will pop up.

Original Story:

We gave you a shot at snagging a code for the beta test of MAG and I hinted this past weekend that we just might give you a chance at that extremely rare Fortune Hunter Edition of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Well, here it is...get ready.

We have five (5) Fortune Hunter Editions to give away and if you're not familiar, this is the uber-limited version of the spectacular Game of the Year candidate. You cannot buy it in stores and SCEA and Naughty Dog have collaborated to give fans a variety of chances to add this gem to their collection; say "thank you" to SCEA for paying attention to PSX Extreme and feast your eyes on what's included in this appealing package that is valued at somewhere around $300, but really, for collectors, it's priceless:

  • An exact in-game replica of the Phurba Dagger Artifact with stand
  • Collectible art book
  • Game downloads
  • Collector case autographed by Naughty Dog

How can you be one of the lucky five? Well, the good news is that it's more about being diligent than lucky. We have embedded a treasure chest image for Uncharted 2 into an article on this site, and all you gotta do is find it. Now, if you're not familiar with us, that's easier said than done...we put up hundreds upon hundreds of news, previews, reviews, and features every month, so you're gonna need at least some luck. The image won't be hard to spot; it sits right there at the end of the article.

If you find it, forward me - bdutka[at]psxextreme.com - a snapshot of the page with the treasure chest clearly shown in the article, and a link to that page. If you're the first, I will respond and ask for your contact information; SCEA will then send you your prize. The only rules:

You must be a US resident and be 18 years of age or older.

You must provide your name, address, phone number and e-mail address when asked.

You must sign an affidavit before receiving your prize (SCEA will provide you with this before sending the shipment).

That's it. Now, if nobody has managed to find it between now and between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m., I will update our Twitter page with a hint concerning the treasure chest's secret location. Every time someone does win, we will move the picture's location and the contest will begin anew! We keep going until all five have been given away. Good luck and happy hunting!

Going to bed now. If someone finds it and sends me an e-mail, don't freak out because I haven't replied immediately. I do have to SLEEP. ;)

And of course, if a bunch of people find it, it's whoever sent me the e-mail first...

Chest in a new locale, peeps! You can find it, I swear...I double and triple-checked and the chest IS there...right at the end of the article.

Keep looking! New hint for new location comes at 6 p.m. if nobody finds it.

Granted that I haven't found the treasure chest yet, I want to be perfectly clear as to how the whole process is done so that should I find it I'll know exactly what to do if I find it.

For example; do I attach the image to an email then send it to you?

yeah i know, i might even have a better chance getting involved with a raffle, i mean one thing is to have some guidelines, but having to retrace what you've checked because someone already found it, it get's tedious and frustrating because you put all that time in, just to have to look at all those articles over and over again...it sucks because i really want to win one, but i've been looking now for a long while and no luck lol, some guidelines would've helped tremendously, but i guess you could argue that this sort of game is similar to a raffle can't you?

I've been up all night since around the time the contest started and I still HAVE NOT FOUND ANYTHING. I have taken a few short breaks and have kept hydrated and what not but I seriously thing I may have a mental break down if I do not find one of these treasure chests. At very least some sort of panic attack.

Wow, as much as i want it, i think im giving up and gonna play uncharted 2 instead. Theres 2 left and i dont know how many articles. Once the fourth one has been found, its gonna be moved, making all your searches worthless and have to search again. Good job to those who found it, wonder how long you took to find it. As for me, its pretty impossible without being pointed in the right direction somehow. Kindda sucks that people are actually trying to get it just to sell it.

it moving every time its found kinda sucks... since you have to re-look everywhere. the worst part though is how many of these are going to end up on Ebay.

I agree with what some posters here have said. The part about someone else finding the Treasure Chest and then removing the Chest from "that" article sounds fair. What IS not fair is that the treasure chest might be attached to one of the (by now) hundreds of articles I have scanned through. All 5 should have been posted from the start, to allow for not having to keep on rescanning the same articles again and again.

Off-topic: Ben/Arnold: 99% of the articles are by you two. I am amazed at how prolific you two have been in your journalism, previews, reviews, and well, all aspects of your job. Job(s) well done!

I started after I heard the 2nd was won and don't see anything either. A little less randomness (if that's a word) would be nice. Not sure where to actually look, I mean I've looked in cheats, reviews, previews,PS1,PS2,PS3 and haven't seen jack. Then some of the articles are the same even if you hit PS1,PS2 or PS3. Congrats to the winners but I'm about to say forget it, going back through the same stuff I've already looked at when some one wins is gettin tedious and aggravating as hell.

He is saying that they will announce on the Twitter page 1st when they put the Treasure chest back onto the PSXE site to search for. I've been looking for awhile and just went back to refresh the page and saw the update. Wonder how long I've been still looking while there was already a 4th winner, oh well congrats. I guess I'll just cross my fingers on the Pulse and ND giveaways :( I have to work tomorrow so I won't have a chance to win the 5th, pretty sure someone will get it before I even get home.

Its hard to give a clue as to where it was. Just like Ben said its at the end of an article. Just keep searching articles until you find it. I searched very systematically until I found it!!! You really can't miss it. Its not "hidden" within the page or anything like that. Good luck to the rest of you guys!!

In what section though? Was it in the PS3, 2, or 1 section? Maybe the PSP or the special review sections? I need clarity. I understand that many check systematically and that clues wont really really help, but I need at least a starting point that would narrow things down to make it less harder. I mean in reality it would make things harder, in terms of our chances to win, because the game would get easier (if that mad any sense), but at least it would save us the time of checking useless sections.

I did the whole "systematic" thing myself, started with one console and worked my way up browsing the previews and reviews sections for each one, didn't find a thing.

Right about the time I finished, I had realized that we were on "break", so you can imagine the frustration of all that searching, especially considering I've been at it since being notified by email of the contest.

This has to be the most time consuming contest I've participated in, and I'm not the contest type, but I'm very happy to say if I don't find it, I at least know I made the effort.

Now, would someone direct me to the nearest mouse clickers anonymous meeting, my hand is about to fall off.

BAD CHOICE :( looks like the bed is calling for me, any ways i doubt i would have won anyway, i mean i checked before over 2000 articles and i still haven't found a thing. O well maybe next time. I have to say though that this has been one great experience, as tedious as it might have seemed.

Geez. It took about 3 hours to check about 300 article pages. It's a big disadavantage to have an underpowered PC with a slow internet connection - those multiple display ads are killer. If I could hunt at my office, I could probably check 3-5 times as many pages in the same amount of time.

to Ramman: you know what, at this point i have no idea, i've already been throw the whole website like 3 times for 24 hours and it was frustrating, i'm just going to go randomly, i mean there is no better way to check, it's pure luck. i mean when psx has archives dating back all the way to 06 and ever further, how the heck are we supposed to strategize? i mean it is ridiculous to a point lol you just really have to be lucky, i mean there's thousands and thousands of articles here so it's nearly impossible to strategize. honestly, i just wish there were a set of guidelines like say maybe it's only news related or preview related, or maybe even tell us a certain year, but that's how it is so we can complain but if you really want it ,you'll put in the time i suppose lol i mean i've already wasted 24 hours of my life with no luck, which sucks lol the one issue for me is when a new chest is posted, you have to recheck all the articles you've looked through, that's why i feel there should be some guidelines. nonetheless it is a competition though, so at least we're fortunate to get this chance

it's going to be noticeable when you see it, it's a treasure chest, and i imagine you'll be able to spot it easily, i mean it's not like they're hiding it, when it's somewhere throughout the website lol. some people who have won it mentioned it would be easy to spot so don't worry about that. well Ben's right, it wouldn't be fair to give hints like that, and honestly, if four people have found it, why do we need hints, history has shown that we haven't needed the hints, he has offered them at certain time, but people managed to find them before hand you know? lol i mean i understand your frustrations, i feel the same way, but that's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes you know? hopefully Ben might drop a hint beforehand, which i really don't see happening lol If not, just hope you find it first lol

i would definitely recommend you get the macbook pro over the macbook air. the air is really kind of a waste of time, as their only real goal with it was to make the smallest laptop out there. the 13" pro is hardly any bigger and really a much better machine with the latest stuff in it. the air has a slower processor, ram limited to 2gb, way smaller hard drive... the list goes on. but the macbook pro is an amazing machine

Well look, i'm not one of those who will bash either one but this is my stand on it. The reason i use a Mac over a PC is nothing more then because i do a lot of video/photo editing and, from what i know, Mac does very well in these areas do to the way they're constructed, mainly for operations. (ex. they can open a lot of applications easily) They also have great video/photo editing software. So I'm very happy with it. The downside to Mac's, however, is the compatibility. Since PC's do dominate the industry (to clarify: people shouldn't argue PC vs MAC, if anything it's Microsoft vs MAC; Mac makes both the software and hardware so here tend to be tighter security measures, while Microsoft (Windows) is predominantly software. I use to have a PC, an hp, and i was very happy with it. People talk abut security problems, but if you have a decent virus program you'll be fine, let's be honest, a lot of people now have just jumped on the bandwagon with Mac's because that's the new "cool gadget" i remember 4 years ago, no one talked about Mac's like they do now. But i recommend both, I think PC's are great, and now with Windows 7, it will be even better with security. Mac's are great also. But it all comes down to what you'll use it for mainly. Also, Mac's are more expensive. But to each is own, i think both are great, i still have a PC (my desktop) so it's up to you honestly

if you do get a Mac, don't get an airbook, you'll break it by just looking at it. lol Also, you'll get more for your money if you buy a normal Macbook, you can also upgrade some stuff with the additional money you'd spend on the airbook

i also forgot to mention, with PC's you can constantly upgrade, Mac's aren't as easy as say getting a PC started kit where you can great value for performance and are easily upgradable, while Mac's are more limited in that sense

Ben, just wanted to thank you for this competition and giving chances to win. But i don't think i'll be able to do this one, don't have the energy tonight, been a long/stressful day so i think i'm just going to head out and relax. At least i know i tried the past few days searching like a mad man haha, it's a bummer i couldn't get luck but hey, that's the way it goes. lol Well, good luck to everyone else and congratulations to the winner!! Thanks again Ben, give a big shout out to everyone at PSX on my behalf!

I looked for a little bit and felt stupid for scoping out articles with the game sitting right in front of me. I figured I'd stop looking and let those who don't have the game look for the chest with one less competitor. This is a great promotion for U2. Good luck to the seekers and congratulations to the winners.

Ben, suggesting the treasure chest is in a "bizarre" or "weird spot" is purely subjective and all the more difficult to locate, after all, we don't know the site as well as you.

Can you shed a bit more light on the situation, it'd be greatly appreciated?

This is crazy btw, its likely not in any "standard" article. Problem is all the "bizarre" articles don't have it and the site is only so big. If it was a preview, review, or news article I bet it would have been found by now.

Can we please have a hint??

Here's hoping that fortune smiles upon me should I enter another contest.

Well I've wasted about a day of my life looking for the chests. This is probably the most effort I've put into something and I worry that my eyes are literally damaged. I really hope that the people that won put as much effort as I have and that they hopefully just don't sell them.

you think your unlucky?
put this on for size.
i imported OPM UK edition last year for the MGS4 review and it had a scratchie in there for 500 thousand dollars.
before i scratched it i read the terms and conditions and you had to be a UK citizen.
so i said to myself i won.
and guess what, i did.
ive bought hundreds of scratchies and have never won, the one that i could not claim the prize in just coincidentally happened to be the one i won.
now thats bad luck!

The last was on the Clive Barker's Jericho review.

and it had to have been found within like the first 35 mins, cause thats about when I came up on it. Which was pretty good I thought =/

I thought it was pretty good. If they REALLY were on previews and reviews pages then that's pretty awesome. I really think some cryptic hints would have helped keep my sanity but that's how the cookie crumbles.

I'm a bit skeptical though.

Still, I'm really happy to see Sony work with people like Ben and send some traffic his way since he does such a great job. I don't surf sites like this often but I certainly got acquainted over the last day it's a pretty excellent place.

Nice job.

When I read bizarre, the first thing I did was search Haze review and multiplataform release of Final Fantasy lol.

Thanks to all. And I honestly don't remember where all the hiding places where, but yes, the last one was in the PS3 review for Clive Barker's Jericho, and another was in some PSP news story from either last year or 2007 (I think it was about Suikoden).

But please, no e-mails saying "I looked there but didn't see it!" It just means I took it down immediately after the first person found it, and they beat you to it. ;)

no install. the 1,000 mb of space is the minimum amt. of space the game will take up initially on your hard drive.

any additional saves and so forth u make will take up an additional amount of space.

the only games ive experienced with installs, are mandatory by developer to help speed up load times in such, usually having a 5gb or so, of space needed!
