Play-Mag writes: It’s the most talked about PC mod of the day, and we want it on PS3 NOW. Or at least in a reasonable timeframe.

DayZ is a much better zombie survival game than L4D

xVeZx1503d ago

l4d is a zombie survival game?

omi25p1503d ago

i find it funny how everyone is talking about DAYZ because of roosterteeth.

Nimblest-Assassin1503d ago

I actually learned about it from NGT... love their playthroughs of it.

How else clicked this story because they thought the thumbnail was "Limbo"?

STONEY41503d ago

Left 4 Dead is an co-op arcade shooter with zombies. DAYZ is a survival game/mod, where human encounters tend to be more dangerous than the zombies. The only similarity is that they both have zombies. The gameplay and direction are completely different, so you can't really even compare the two.

Mounce1502d ago

I've never played DayZ, but from the basic info I heard about it of being a 'realistic' zombie game of survival and potential betrayal of other humans where it's to fight for yourself and whatnot.

I like it. Reminds me a 'Little' about Diablo 2, before Diablo 3 took a shit all over the whole Hostility thing being removed.

evilunklebud1502d ago

Maybe, but to have both is BETTER.

I do know that once upon a time the PS3 could handle UT3 mods with literally little to no conversions issues. So if the original title based on DayZ is already running on the system it should too.

PockyKing1503d ago

DayZ runs on Arma 2, which is only on PC

MAJ0R1503d ago

I know some people aren't really into PC's but just to give everyone a heads up, Arma 2 will never run on a PS3 or any console unless you want to browse the most complicated user interface with a controller and play a slideshow.

xAlmostPro1503d ago

@MAJ0R very true!

However how awesome would it be if sony funded the creators of DayZ to create a DayZ only spin-off :P

Same mechanics, same idea, without the arma 2 requirement underneath :)

One can wish :P

Skate-AK1503d ago

I know 360 and PS3 obviously can't run it but to say it will never come to a console is stupid. PS3 has mouse and keyboard support and I think PS4 will to. So that complicated interface you are talking about would be no different then a PC players.

STONEY41503d ago (Edited 1503d ago )

I highly doubt anyone would make a console game ONLY playable with a keyboard and mouse. That's why Arma 2, or any Arma game, will never show up on consoles. There are so many keys, but a lot of them actually do something useful, and the controls can't be condensed to a controller.

Now for a DayZ retail spin-off not based on Arma 2, that would make more sense. And that could work on a controller. But I still don't see that as something likely to happen.

greenlantern28141502d ago

your wrong it could run on ps3, it is not that impressive of a game. working through the user interface might be the only problem. but the game would still run smoothly.

WagFanger1502d ago

@greenlantern
You sir, are f*cking retarded. Arma II needs a LOT more processing power than current consoles would give.

I think we'd all love to see Day Z just get its own retail release on any platform.

ChickeyCantor1503d ago

It's a game I have, but havn't been able to play yet because the server poop out on me.

Also stop using Yahoo or Bing and google the damn game.

"DayZ is a free to play mod launched for ArmA II and is set in Chernarus which is a 225 square kilometre open world that's been hit by an unknown infection that's seen most of the world's population wiped out. You, the player, are one of the few survivors and will need to start new in this zombie-filled world."

I think she is Luigi's girlfriend who Mario has an affair with.

Veni Vidi Vici1502d ago

What's the point? There needs to be some sort of end or goal but I can't see one. You basically go around looking for supplies and fight off zombies and other players. Okay, then what? How do you win? Someone who's played it, explain the point of this game?

Anyway, honestly I never really like L4D series
