130,000+ people played Uncharted 2 beta (and other Naughty Dog statistics)

We've fallen in love with a recent 1UP article which features a number of statistics from Naughty Dog regarding the creation of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. Here are some of the highlights:
  • More than 130,000 people from 135 countries took part in the Uncharted 2 Multiplayer Beta
  • In just three weeks, beta participants logged over 40,300 hours of play time
  • A month was spent recording motion-capture performances, supplying over 90 minutes of cinematics for the game
  • The Naughty Dog team consumed over 30,000 cans of soda (and a bottle of bourbon) during the game's development
Not only does this story resonate with our inner numerologist, it gives some neat details about one of our most anticipated games of 2009 ... and then, at the end, there's a picture of two adorable puppies. It's like they've created the recipe for the perfect blog post.
