29 May 2011 UPDATE
Not quite deserving a whole article of it's own, but worth mentioning. Rumors have surfaced about Uncharted Portable's possible title. According to a "source" inside Sony, it will be entitled Uncharted: Golden Abyss, and the handheld console will be called the PlayStation Vita. Remember, they're only rumors for the time being. Read the original story here, and remember to blame them if it's not true ;)

Better late than never with these news updates.
David O. Russell has left the Uncharted movie. Sony were unhappy with his script, which reportedly introduced a slew of new characters not featured in the games. Sony are still eager to have the film go ahead, and are drafting in a new writer to work from an much earlier script draft by Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly (nope, we don't know who they are either). Don't expect to see the film in cinemas any time soon, but we've still got Uncharted: Angels' Artifact to look forward to.Christopher Golden's Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth has progressed in leaps and bounds since we last heard about it, gaining a release date (October 4th), a shiny new cover (to the right), a total page-count of 352, and an updated plot summary:
In the ancient world there was a myth about a king, a treasure, and a hellish labyrinth. Now the doors to that hell are open once again.
Nathan Drake, treasure hunter and risk taker, has been called to New York City by the man who taught him everything about the "antiquities acquisition business." Victor Sullivan needs Drake's help. Sully's old friend, a world-famous archaeologist, has just been found murdered in Manhattan. Dodging assassins, Drake, Sully, and the dead man's daughter, Jada Hzujak, race from New York to underground excavations in Egypt and Greece. Their goal: to unravel an ancient myth of alchemy, look for three long-lost labyrinths, and find the astonishing discovery that got Jada's father killed. It appears that a fourth labyrinth was built in another land and another culture-and within it lies a key to unmatched wealth and power. An army of terrifying lost warriors guards this underground maze. So does a monster. And what lies beyond - if Drake can live long enough to reach it - is both a treasure and a poison, a paradise and a hell.
Welcome to The Fourth Labyrinth.
Pretty cool, right? If you came here looking for Uncharted 3 news, then fear not. We were treated to a brand new location the other day, The Pelican Inn. It's set to be one of the first locations featured in the game, where Nate and Sully get into a brawl with the regulars.
