Japanese Television Ruining Uncharted

Starting Oct. 3 on late night television, TV Tokyo is broadcasting a new program to promote Uncharted 3. It will ruin the game's prequel. Literally.

The show, dubbed UnchaTV, isn't a live action drama, but the cutscenes from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves edited together into sixteen episodes. File this under either "spoilers" or "lazy".

The total running time for all the episodes is around 64 minutes.

Besides the edited cutscenes, the show will feature actors (above) playing a young couple. The boyfriend loves Uncharted, but his girlfriend doesn't play video games at all. The show is supposed to show how couples can enjoy Uncharted—which seems to be one person playing, and the other person watching.

That makes sense, I guess. Some people don't like playing video games, but might enjoy watching Uncharted. But did Sony really have to edit together Uncharted 2's cutscenes?
