The Naughty Dog Community is vibrant and unique. In order to appeal to this we will be hosting fun and exciting game nights every week with online multiplayer video games from Naughty Dog's catalogue. With that being said, these are not tournaments. Please read through the Naughty Paws FAQ below before posting in this thread. The video games that you see below the Naughty Paws Banner are supported titles. Feel free to click on one of them in order to see which Naughty Paws events are scheduled this week for which video games.
In order to sign up for a Naughty Paws event with UNCHARTED 2: AMONG THIEVES or UNCHARTED 3: DRAKE'S DECEPTION you need to post in this thread, specify which event(s) you would like to participate in, and include the PlayStation Network ID that you will be using for each event. Events for some of our supported titles will not be scheduled every week. Reservations can generally be made one week in advance. Check this post for details (and possible changes) on a regular basis.

NAUGHTY PAWS FAQ
Q: What exactly are Naughty Paws and how do I participate?
A: Naughty Paws events consist of custom online multiplayer matches with some of Naughty Dog's top video games. These events are open to everyone. To sign up for a Naughty Paws event simply leave a reply in this thread and request a spot. You cannot sign up for an event on behalf of someone else. Make sure you include the PlayStation Network ID that you will be using for the event in your post and clearly identify the event that you would like to attend if there is more than one Naughty Paws event scheduled. It is your responsibility to ensure that the dates and times for these events are suitable for you before you sign up for them. Here is a Time Zone Converter: Time Zone Converter. Each Naughty Paws event will be led by a pre-approved host. You will generally receive a friend request from your host the day (or night) of the event. Be sure to leave space on your friends list, adjust your privacy settings (if applicable) and accept this request. If unresolvable technical issues halt a Naughty Paws event and play cannot be continued then the event will be cancelled. If you experience some issues during an event and would like to still participate then try to restart the multiplayer, reconnect, and (if applicable) rejoin the text chat.
Naughty Dog [NDI] Developers and Sony [SCEA] Employees (i.e., special guests) will sometimes participate in these events. Be on the lookout for those events! Footage from Naughty Paws may be uploaded onto YouTube or streamed on TwitchTV.
Q: What can I expect from Naughty Paws? What should I know before I participate?
A: You should not join the host’s party unless you have been given an invitation. Please be patient and wait for your invitation. If you have not received an invitation from the host then you were either not online when the event started or you were unable to accept the host’s friend request for whatever reason. If the host expects you to join his or her party then he or she will invite you to the text chat for the Naughty Paws event (if one has been created). Please accept this text chat invitation because not everyone may have a microphone. Players who join the host’s party without an invitation run the risk of being kicked from it in order to make room for individuals who signed up for the event. The only exception to this will be if the host has no more reserves available. With that being said, we expect everyone to be on their best behavior during these events. If you are acting in a manner that is extremely offensive, using glitches, or "ruining the game night for other players" then you may be removed from the party. Repeat offenses will make it very difficult for you to participate in future Naughty Paws events. Treat everyone with respect and you will have nothing to worry about. Event hosts have the final say in your removal so please respect them.
Q: Are there any rewards or prizes associated with Naughty Paws?
A: If you sign up for a Naughty Paws event and make an effort to participate in it then you will be eligible for the special "Naughty Paw" forum rank. There is at least one special "Naughty Paw" rank floating around for each Naughty Paws event. Randomly selected individuals will be able to sport this rank in the PlayStation Community Forums for approximately one week. The PlayStation Network ID whose forum rank will change temporarily will be the one that is used to sign up for a Naughty Paws event in this thread (i.e., request a spot for the event). If you are someone who has a bunch of alternate accounts then exercise caution with this. Only forum members with regular ranks and rank shields are eligible for these rewards.

I know! Why don't we have one Naughty Dog developer coming over and play with us once per month? That would be cool!
I asked Eric in a PM and he said we'll have a "Play with the Dogs" event. He didn't mention the time though, so I guess soon(TM).
