    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?[/p]

    TL;DR During the PSN downtime Naughty Dog decided to work on a LAN mode because they seemingly didn't have anything else to do during that time.

    Not an option that I have used myself but definitely useful for parties and other events when there's multiple PS3's involved!

    LAN mode is nice(more game need it)

    if the PSN is Down, you can still use multilayer(of some kind)
    and
    Xlink kai, should work with it as well

    Good idea on Naughty Dog's part. The at lease someone learned something from the PSN downtime.

    If more games get it, they will find a way to make custom servers by connecting your PS3 with your PC~ ^^ .. hopefully.
