Welcome to drakesfortune the official-unofficial Livejournal Community for the Uncharted series created by Naugty Dog for the PlayStation 3. Uncharted is an action-adventure video game developed by Naughty Dog, and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for PlayStation 3. Combining platforming and third-person shooter elements, the game charts the journey of protagonist Nathan Drake, supposed descendant of the explorer Sir Francis Drake, as he seeks the lost treasure of El Dorado, with the help of friend Victor "Sully" Sullivan and journalist Elena Fisher. Originally announced at E3 2006, the title was developed for about two years before being released at the end of 2007.
Seen as a key title for the PlayStation 3 during the holiday season of 2007, the game was well-received by critics, many of whom cited its technical achievements and its high production values, similar to that of summer blockbuster films. The game went on to sell more than one million copies in ten weeks, and become part of the European best-selling Platinum Range of titles. The sequel, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, was officially announced in the December 2008 issue of Game Informer and released in North America on October 13, 2009, and in Europe on October 16, 2009. Uncharted 2 has received universal critical acclaim with a Metacritic score of 96 out of 100, a GameRankings score of 96.46%, and a GameStats score of 9.8/10.

It is the sequel to Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. It was first announced on December 9, 2010. Officially it was announced at the 2010 Spike Video Game Awards with a debut trailer, which was on December 11, 2010. The worldwide demo of the game was premiered on the American late-night talk show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on December 14, 2010.
