Uncharted 2 chapter Tweets disabled

That's a relief #UNCHARTED2

Naughty Dog has disabled chapter-completion updates via Twitter in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, after reviewers drove all their friends and colleagues mad with constant automated posts.

"Some reviewers have had early access to the game and selected the option to update their Twitter accounts as they completed each chapter of the game," Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells explained on the US PlayStation blog. "This has resulted in some Twitter feeds being updated multiple times an hour."

While that would not make much of a difference to the @johnnyminkleys of the world, for the rest of us it's a pain in the backside. "We obviously want to provide the best experience for everybody," Wells continued, "so for the time being we've disabled Twitter updates on chapter completions.

"The option will still exist in the menus when the game ships on 10/13, but if activated, it will do nothing. Some time after the game has shipped, we'll release a patch to reactivate the feature, but with a limit on the frequency of updates."

As Alex from Eurogamer Germany points out, however, there are a number of other Twitter options in Uncharted 2, for things like making money in multiplayer and uploading Cinema Mode recordings, and the PlayStation blog post only mentions chapter completion updates.

This seems like a good opportunity to remind you all about Eurogamer's Twitter, updated by yours truly, which didn't include those chapter updates but does sometimes get tired and emotional, make spelling mistakes and answer questions about features and embargoes.

Like the Uncharted 2 review one, which is 7pm BST tonight.
