Uncharted 2 Fortune Hunter Edition Giveaway Is Complete

And so, another giveaway is in the books, and we are here to give a heartfelt congratulations to all five of the lucky - and determined - winners.

This Treasure Hunt giveaway contest, which so many of you participated in, absolutely exploded; we just can't believe how many people went searching for that hidden treasure chest. We have thousands upon thousands of articles in our database and the chest could've been in any one of them...it's a testament to the sheer number of people who searched that no chest stayed hidden for more than four or five hours. In fact, one or two were nailed within the first hour, which is downright incredible. You guys always step up to have fun in our giveaways (as evidenced by our MAG beta code giveaway, which resulted in around 750 new wallpapers uploaded to the site), and we appreciate it. And here are your five winners, in no particular order:

Kyle H. from PA

Frank O. from CT

Amy P. from MA

Jose M. from WA

Andre W. from CA

Ah, east and west; nice little representation there. Also, we hear there was some poetic justice involved; the very first member who responded to that contest article (and possibly the very first to start looking) did end up winning one of these coveted Fortune Hunter Editions. Isn't that nice? Anyway, SCEA now has all your information, winners, so you should be hearing from them shortly. As for the rest of you, we're sorry you didn't win but you did us proud. And hey, the more you participate like this, the more likely it is that Sony comes to us with more giveaway ideas, so it's definitely in your best interests to keep checking PSXE.

And by the way, there should be no unhappy gamers out there, not with the likes of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves on store shelves. It's one hell of an experience, and you can look for an editorial from me regarding this project's accomplishment.

The 4th chest was in the ps2 preview for Nobunaga's Ambition: Rise to Power.

@ Ben When do you think SCEA will actually ship them out?

Well I just want to congradulate everyone who won, and applaud the ones who tried. They were nobel efforts, and deserve praise. I saw comments like, "I stayed up 48 hours straight" and "I have a headache from all this searching". By stating these comments you've proven that you're willing to risk your health for a video game, and that shows commitment, and I can respect that.

As a winner thanks a lot guys. I did put in my time. As Ben said I was the first to comment on the initial article and that night I spent 5 hours looking for the first chest. The next day I only put in about an hour, just got lucky I guess.

Congrats to the winners. The game is out here tomorrow :)

Question is though you win one of those babies do you put it up on ebay like that guy did $3,000+ last time I looked at it on ebay or do you keep it so you can play Uncharted 2 and look at all the goodies you got with it ? It's a hard one folks. What would you do ? Is it gonna get more rarere in the future as only 200 were made ?

Thanks from another winner. The 3rd treasure chest was in the PS2 Transformers review. I must have gotten really lucky cuz I only spent about 1 hour total looking before I found the treasure chest. It is a hard decision, but I plan on keeping mine. I sure could use the money though!!

Ben:

I would really appreciate an editorial on Uncharted 2. I'm almost done (22nd chapter), but I'm just totally blown away by the game. One of the awesome things about being a console gamer for 20 years or so is that you see is the rapid advancement and quantum leaps that games have taken over that period of time. To me, this game is a perfect representation of one of those leaps and I think it will be remembered as such.

But like I said, I'd enjoy getting your impression of all that, and the effect it will have, etc.

Oh, don't worry. It's a-comin'. :)

Actually, if you read my MGS4 editorial from last year, it'll be something along those lines.

This hurts so much. I'm trapped in Utah for three weeks and I don't have my PS3 with me. I've been waiting for this game for so long and now I have to sit around and wait till I get home. Hope everyone else out there is having a great time with U2...fml.
