That's because you didn't pay the extra $8 to get it.

Oh wow... you missed the boat on that one. When they released the trophy patch, it was automatically updated with more content so that people could go back and enjoy a somewhat new experience.

Once you collect 3/4's of your treasures and are given the trophy for that, you'll get another prompt where to find the jet pack in the game. It's easy to find. I don't want to ruin the experience and fun if you decided to play through it again.

I believe to unlock the expansion offer you have to collect 100% (61/61) of treasures on "Crushing" difficulty. I could be wrong though but I made sure I had 100% before I finished the game.

Maybe you noticed it at that point, but I got it when I collected 3/4 of the treasures, got the trophy prompt and then another prompt.

There are 61 treasures but the game only needs you to find 60.. so you can end up with 61/60.

Either way, he's missing out not playing the game with the jetpack

Various 'net reports are summing up the newest issue of Game Informer where the game is the cover story. Here is one summary from NeoGAF:

Quote:


- The biggest thing in the article IMO is that there's a new girl named Chloe Frazer. GI asked about Elena and Sully's return but they had no comment.

- The story is about looking for the ships that Marco Polo "lost" while returning home to Italy.

- Melee combat is more dynamic now.

- They mentioned they were using only 30% of the PS3's power with Drake's Fortune and are planning to use nearly 100% with Among Thieves.

- A demo was shown to GI with Drake going through a city (I believe in Nepal), and he's stealthily taking out guards and escaping the city.

- Nolan North returns to be Drake and Chloe Frazer is played by Claudia Black (Stargate SG-1, Fargate).

- The Sixaxis mechanics were ditched for such things as throwing grenades.

- One of the weapons revealed is a rocket launcher that Chloe uses (might only be for the cinematic).

- There are no load screens.

- The score is being composed by Greg Edmonson (same guy from the first one).

- Weapons can be used in any stance (running, behind cover, hanging, climbing a wall, etc.).

- You can now move while aiming behind cover.

- I'm not sure how to explain this one so this is what it says:
"In Uncharted 2, every character fully interacts with the dynamic geometry moving around them, and environments in the background are real parts of the game world"
"If Drake's on top of a train, he's going to be shaking with the train as it moves around"
"As he gets inside, his moveset is going to change, and he's going to be a lot more secure because the wind's not blowing."

- The graphics look better than Uncharted 1.

- Button sequence cinematics such as the final boss have changed so now Drake is now fully controllable in these parts...I think (This one's also hard to describe).

- Climbing seems improved upon. You can climb lamp posts now among other new things.

- If there is an enemy patrolling a rooftop you're climbing a wall to, you can pull him off the roof while hanging on the wall.

Some great news in that article. Glad they ditched the sixaxis controls for tossing the grenades. I pretty much gave up on trying to be accurate with grenades at some point.

All this talk about this game is making me want to play the first one. I only played the demo and never really thought anymore of it. Always read everyone loving it so maybe its time. I think Amazon has it for like 40.

It's a short game and you can plow through it in a day or two. If you're big on the silly trophies or unlocking mostly bland "making of" videos and such then there may be a little more value but I'd say rent it first and if you still want to play it more then ebay it for $25-$35. It's likely going to be cheaper now that the bundle will help in flooding the market with an older game.

Maybe they're going the James Bond/Indiana Jones route, a new girl in every adventure. I'd miss Elena but that would be cool too.

This seems almost a guarantee there'll be some underwater action this time.

You bring up a good point about the underwater. I remember a while back someone said something like Uncharted: Atlantis. They even made some concept art.

That water part in the castle was simply breath taking, one of the hardest fights in the biggest room as well. One of the areas I thought they could have a bit more to as well.
