Uncharted 2 and God of War III for PlayStation Move at Walmart

Posted by James Newton

But all is not as it seems

When a new game gets patched for Move there's generally a press release at least, so imagine our surprise when reader Fasturn sent in a photos from his local Walmart showing Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and God of War III bearing the familiar blue PlayStation Move logo as part of the Greatest Hits banner.

Upon closer inspection it becomes clear that Walmart has simply placed a Greatest Hits sticker along the top of a regular copy of the game, presumably one from other Move-enabled Greatest Hits games such as MAG or Heavy Rain.

Sadly God of War III and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves are not playable with PlayStation Move, nor are they likely ever to be. Shame on you for getting our hopes up, Walmart.

I'm pretty sure there aren't Greatest Hits releases for those games — the red box kind. There is a GOTY edition for Uncharted 2, but not Greatest Hits.

That's weird. Are there any PS Move Greatest Hits games yet or are there just two different stickers.

I work at Walmart, and the guys in the electronics aren't always so game savvy. We do have greatest hits stickers, but they go on older, better games.

As the article mentions, M.A.G. now has a red box Greatest Hits release, but I haven't seen one for Heavy Rain yet, despite the price drop.

@ James Newton:

If only to quibble, I guess what I'm curious about is, has anyone actually seen the Red Boxes (as pictured in the PlayStation Blog) version of these games, yet? As of April 20, 2011?

I only get to shop, online, but no retailer I've seen has the Greatest Hits description or red box pictured

Not, for instance, the difference in the Red Box of GOW 3 from the Blog which clearly states "Game of the Year!" and the absence of that in what Walmart has in stock from the photo.
