We have two uniquely outstanding video clips from the world of Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception to show you this morning, and both of them came to us by way of one of Joystiq‘s stories. We thank them for sliding these great clips out into the open, especially the Japanese Harrison Ford TV spot you’ll find below.
But, before that, on top of this post, is the Uncharted 3 launch trailer. Launch trailers signify the onset of games, as their genre implies, so seeing the more than two minute clip above right now means that we’re about to dive face first into the world of Nathan Drake.
Uncharted 3 is less than two weeks away, folks.
Harrison Ford plays the game for its Japanese commercial, he closes the video by saying “スゲー,” or “sugee,” which is basically a cool way to say “awesome” in Japan. In case you didn’t already know, Ford is famous for more than just movies in Japan. He also championed a brand of Japanese alcohol for a long time.
As much as it pains us to say, it looks like Ford didn’t even turn the controller on to pretend play for the advert above. Come on! You have to wonder whether or not anyone from the likes of Sony or Naughty Dog has noticed this minor production slip-up by now … fans have, of course, but we’re crazy nerds driven to the pursuit of geeky fact checking. This is our job.
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception will launch for the PlayStation 3 on November 1st.
UPDATE: We take back the mean things we said about Ford pretend playing; here he is playing the same demo for roughly seven minutes.
