A brand new listing at Best Buy has listed a dual-pack release for the Uncharted series which will presumably include both Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (along with all the DLC we presume) at the cheap price of $39.99 and although lacking in official confirmation, a release date has been listed on the page as 9/27/2011. Uncharted is not the first series to bundle previous games in the series for a budget release in anticipation for a 3rd game in the series.
The Gears of War series has already got in on the act with the Gears of War: Triple Pack which includes the first two games plus added content and SCE along with Insomniac Games have released a bundle for the Resistance series including Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2 in order to get people who may not know of the series up to speed in time for Resistance 3. I think these packs are a great idea to get people interested in the series for an affordable price but you can’t help be feel slightly annoyed to see people getting both games for $39.99 when you bought them for a higher price on release or soon after.
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception comes out this November 1 for PS3. Multiplayer beta starts June 28th going into July with a full MP experience available before the game’s full release in October.
