Justin Richmond, Director of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted 3, has revealed an interesting side effect of the PSN Hack. The development team needed to continue to work on the game during the PSN outage so created a LAN mode for multi-player.
“As a developer, one of the things is, you want to keep playing the game,” said Justin, “And so, actually, one of the positive outshoots from [the PSN hack] was that we got LAN. So our programmers sat down and said, ‘OK, how can we continue to work?’ And so they hooked up the LAN gameplay mode and now we’re shipping with that. So lemons to lemonade.”
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception will join a very small number of PS3 games with a LAN mode – will you use it?
