Update: The event is now over, I hope those that attended enjoyed themselves! If you haven't received a confirmation email, send your inquiries to: Premium_Pass@playStation.sony.com

I wasn't sure if this is the right section but it's sort of a cool deal for those in the qualifying area. Naughty Dog has partnered with AMC theatres to have an event from Oct 18th - 20th where you can play Uncharted 3 in select theaters in 3D, and win prizes from Sony, and much more.

The general admission is $25 to participate, BUT if you pay the $60 instead for the Premium pass you'll also have a copy of UC3 mailed to you early (shipped via Fed Ex on Oct. 25th). To Clarify since some below were confused: You don't have to pay $85, the $60 premium entry also includes general admission.

Pretty cool if you were planning to buy the game anyway! Odds are you'll be walking out of there with plenty of free swag 8-)

To Buy tickets online just go through one of the theater links below, OR easier go directly to the UC3 Fandango Page (linked underneath this paragraph), enter your zip and choose the date you want. Some theaters don't have purchase links up yet (like Century City for ex) so you'll either have to wait till they do, or try and get them in person. There's also a $1.50 convenience charge if buying on Fandango, but thankfully no taxes:

Buy Tickets from Fandango HERE (not all theatres go through Fandango some go through movietickets.com so click the theater links below for those)


UPDATE: The thread has now been Wikified, below you'll find a list of all the theares and showtimes. Feel free to post which one you're attending to plan any meetups or whatever. Feel free to re-organize the list structure!

Has anyone actually figured out a way to buy the tickets online?
I've checked out the website for the theater, but it doesn't appear there's an actual place to buy a ticket, outside of perhaps having to actually go to the theater.

Just click through on one of the links above, select the date you want and it'll take you to a Fandango page. Here's the general UC3 Fandango page, I'll add it to the OP: http://www.fandango....date=10/18/2011


Speaking of, I wonder if I bought one of those discounted promotional Fandango credits from ebay if I could apply it to this and thus get the event (and the game) for cheaper

I still can't find a way to actually buy tickets from your Fandango link. I called AMC Century City and they said they won't have finalized showtimes until Monday, and you should be able to buy tickets then.

So $85 to play the retail game like 3 days before release. No thanks. Shipped does not mean delivered so if it ships the 25th it probably wouldn't arrive till the 28th But I would pay the $25 for the movie experience at Union Square because I already have the game paid off in full at Gamestop.

It's not $85. You can either pay $25 to just go to the event or you can pay $60 to go to the event and get the game.

Oh, I only tried the NYC link which definitely works. Century City doesn't have showtimes for anything for Oct 18th-20

It's $60 TOTAL to get the game AND participate in the event. Obviously shipped doesn't mean delivered, but odds are you are going to get it before the official release date through Fed Ex. Even by your estimates you would get it 3 days before the general public. And Besides that, if you planned to buy the game anyway, this is essentially like getting to go to a special event for free. And you know there's going to be a lot to do there, and swag given out.

I honestly don't see how anyone would consider this a bad offer. If you're getting the game cheaper through newegg, or with amazon/GS credit that's totally fine, but if you're paying full price and you're in the area it's a no-brainer, Plus as I said, I think if you bought a promo code on ebay you could get it for even less. Like someone right now is selling a $40 Fandango GC for $30. That's a $10 saving right there

edit; Love the 1 star rating btw whoever

I wish there was one near me. For $60 this is an awesome thing to do. Get the game for MSRP and get a few hours of a unique experience, plus get the game a few days early.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I see this as actually a better deal than buying it in stores, if you can go ...

1. If the $60 isn't taxed (it probably is but who knows) then you get it for less than buying retail on release day. Plus, you get it early, so you could always sell it early locally if you really wanted to make the money back.

2. The event should be solid, I attended the event for Uncharted 2 in SF and the prizes for the tournament were very solid and they also had raffle prizes as well. So you might go away with something like a PS3 or a couple games, all for the cost of the game if you bought it on release.

Nope no taxes, but there is a $1.50 convenience charge if you buy it through Fandango. You can likely buy the tickets at the select theaters and just pay the $60 though.

Thanks for sharing your experience with the UC2 event, I too heard it was awesome. I imagine just being able to play the game in 3D on the big screen would be worth it.

It sounds like you actually have to attend the event to get your copy a week early. I'd totally cancel my pre-order and get a $60 ticket if I thought they'd just ship it to me early.

the event is just propaganda, u never win the raffle, the keychain prizes are worthless junk. the real big deal here is u pay 60 to get the following==

1.get the game U3
2.gain admission into the theater, thereby you can watch 3-4 movie releases that day. each film costs like $11 to watch. profit

u basically get the game and 3-4 films being shown that day in the theater. THATS why its a good deal.

think like a C A G, not a _ _ _ .


So basically the 3 games (Little Big Planet, GT3 and Infamous) that my gf won and gave me didn't exist and the guy who won a PS3 was a plant and the people who won the tournament and got a Fortune Hunters edition were totally bogus too.

Yeah man, it's all just a crazy waste of time and money to go for the actual event ... ..

Ugh can't decide between $25 admission or the $60 admission. I've already preordered the Collector's Edition. =[

Does anyone know what kind of swags are likely to be given out at these promotional events?

:lol: I'm waiting for the posts after this event takes place complaining about how they 'promised free food and OMG they didn't give us anything'. As if you go to an event like this to hover over the hors d'oeuvre trays and ya know...not to actually PLAY THE GAME.:roll:

Too bad the closest one to me is NYC and I'm about a 2 hour drive from there. If it were closer I'd probably go in a second.

Probably not anything worth $25 unless you win something. Last time attendees got a bag and a poster ... and a copy of Uncharted 2 .. but that was a last minute thing that wasn't really supposed to happen. I guarantee they won't do that this time ... so I would just go with the $60 ticket personally. I just did ... if you're going to go, you might as well put that $25 towards something more than the event itself right?

for those that went to the previous events, what did you guys do exactly?

my problem is that getting to the LA (century city) one during traffic hours is gonna be bad. I dont mind missing out the tournament and hand ons if I could go later. I just want to register to get my game and hopefully some goodies.

My ideal scenario is go in and get some free food, register for the free game, win some goodies, then hop to a diff screen to catch a movie.
