Pre-Order Uncharted 3 At Best Buy, Play A Level Early

Most pre-order incentives these days are pretty similar to one another. An "exclusive" in-game item (that usually goes downloadable pretty fast), a little collectible, etc.

But we like this idea better. A reader has pointed us in the direction of Best Buy, which is offering quite the appealing bonus for those who pre-order Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception and we have to say, you gotta appreciate the effort.

If you put your deposit down at Best Buy, you'll actually be able to play Naughty Dog's masterpiece well ahead of time. You'll have to take a trip down to the store, but that's not so bad, is it? You'll also receive an exclusive Regeneration Booster, which speeds up recovery of your wounds by 70%. And as you can see in the ad right here-

"Plus, starting October 21, you can be one of the first to play an exclusive Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception level before it releases on November 1. Only at select Best Buy stores."

Well, just hope your store is one of the "select" ones. They say it's an exclusive level, by the way, but chances are, we've seen it in video footage before. All you have to do is find out ahead of time if your local Best Buy is participating, and then put down your deposit. October 21 is a good ten days before the game officially arrives on store shelves, so that's not bad.

I don't like this for one reason. I know that once I start playing the game I won't want to stop.

I'm happy with my order preorder from Newegg for $48. The only preorder deals I care about are discounted price and/or store credit.

i wish kmart does preorders because every big game theyre releasing comes with at least a $20 gaming coupon. for batman arkham city, they're giving out a gaming coupon, a tshirt, and something else they're not revealing.

Sounds like you just go to the store and play, no need to pre-order. BB does this all the time (like with infamous 2). Its just an early demo that they give to some BB stores.

I see nothing that says you have to pre-order the game in order to play their demo, just go to a participating store.

Does select stores mean US only? I'm not reading anything about US only in this article.

No more complaining from you today.

Donate your PS3 to a needy kid and move on, games are too stressful for you.

last time i checked BB is a US only store.
no you dont, not at all.
thats why every single time something is released, be it a retail game or a PSN item its released in the states first, if not exclusively.
thats why the states pays half if not less for the LEs we do!
thats why allot of competitions for rare items like the uncharted 2 explorer edition are exclusive to the states.
thats why community events, like the 3D cinema showing is exclusive to the states.
nah, yous totally dont get treated like royalty.
why does SCEE even exist!?

Geez, at the rate Sony's giving out these "play this part of the game before anyone else" preorder incentives, they might as well just release the damn thing early.

Hehehe no thanks, If I start playing the game I want the option to experience all from the begging, also for personal motives I don't want nothing with BestBuy after the Dark Souls CE fraud.
