It seems like these last seven days there’s no getting away from Uncharted 3. Following the preview thursday morning from Entertainment Weekly, the big reveal Saturday night, the appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, then the release of the making-of video, it’s been non stop news. But wait there’s more. As if teaser, trailer, and making of video didn’t look good enough, Sony’s official site for the title now confirms full supports for stereoscopic 3D. Hit the jump to read it for yourselves!

UNCHARTED raises technology bar yet again: UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception™ features new innovations in sand, fire, smoke, and water dynamics and effects. Full support of high-resolution stereoscopic 3D.

Along with 3D support, comes another interesting bullet point, in regards to multiplayer. Now, besides the competitive mulitplayer in Uncharted 2, players also had the opportunity of running some co-op missions as well. However these “missions” if you can call them that didn’t add much in the story department. Here’s what’s different for U3:

A new breed of Action Adventure Multiplayer: Competitive and co-op multiplayer return with brand new experiences and massively expanded feature sets. The UNCHARTED universe provides a unique multiplayer experience, for the first time bringing the exciting cinematic elements of the single-player campaign into multiplayer.

With this latest tease of a “cinematic experience” in multiplayer could we be expecting a true side game to the main title? One can only hope. Now let the speculation begin!
