Three jet-lagged Game Informer editors are crisscrossing Cologne, Germany to bring you the most important news coming from the pre-convention press conferences today. See what looks awesome – and what looks worse than Wonderbook – inside.
Haven't read the article yet but if they say anything other than COD Vita trailer as worst then they are wrong.
oh they did...
And they're right... XD This is what I want https://www.youtube.com/wat... Also, loving the Youtbe.app on the PS3 :D
I completely agree, cod vita was the worst thing I saw at gamescom Here is why 1) Visuals and online The game looks like a psp game, and not a very good one. There are games like medal of honour heroes and star wars battlefront (the psp exclusive ones) that look better than this http://gamerinvestments.com... http://wiimedia.ign.com/wii... ALSO.. 4x4 multiplayer? Thats it? Those psp games I mentioned before, not only have better visuals, but also supported 16-32 player mutliplayer... and this is on inferior hardware. Plus its cod, not much is going on... but in that star wars battlefront game, when multiple people are having an orbital strike weapon, plus in the newer one, where players could move from ground to space... and still supported 32 players You are telling me, all this game can support is 8 2) Gameplay Read this: http://ca.ign.com/articles/... Title: COD vita multiplayer dissapoints Its another bare bones shooter, the same with resistance vita.... Thus, the only possible plus to this game is its story... which not only is it a cod, but the story is being done by nihlistic... thus you know it won't be spectacular -_- This system can do so much better, and this game has nothing good going for it.... oh well Killzone easily trumps it
Rachet and Clank: https://www.youtube.com/wat... Assassins Creed: https://www.youtube.com/wat... Tear Away: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Killzone Mercenary: https://www.youtube.com/wat... Sly Cooper: https://www.youtube.com/wat... All these vita games look awesome... cod was the worst vita game shown at gamescom... period
I myself am a Vita owner. However, I have to say that the trailer did little to impress me. It CERTAINLY does not like it is worth the $50.
I also am a Vita owner. The only games I've owned are MLB 12, and Uncharted. They only two I've seen that I felt I'd be missing out if I didn't play them (had MLB on PS3 too - played a lot on the Vita, especially on the run - a nice gimmick, but probably not worth all the hype over it, especially for $80-100.) Any recommendations? Don't like fighting games but I picked up Mortal Kombat for $10 at gamestop last week and traded it on Amazon for $19. I kinda liked the Gravity Rush demo, but didn't know if it would get boring after the first few levels. Looking forward to Ragnarok Odyssey and LBP though. The 'Buy the PS3 version and get the Vita version free' thing has me thinking PS All Stars might be a good pick up. I'm assuming that you'll buy the physical PS3 version and receive a code for the Vita digital download - didn't research any farther than that. Well, I wrote more than I needed to - sorry.
@DeFFer Hmmmm..... which games would I recommend? Well most of them are coming out in the holiday season, but they are: Sound Shapes, LBP Vita, AC: Liberation,Sly Cooper and Killzone Mercs. If you can get Resistance Burning Skies for around $20 it's totally worth the money, maybe even at $30 but definitely not the $40. I bought it at $40 but I still don't feel ripped off.
why are we ignoring rain , this game is IT , you should mention it in your article
@lociefer Hey that is true, I forgot about "the working title" rain, It looked pretty amazing and gave a good vibe!!!
Looked really bad, and it's being handled by Nihilistic, not a good sign. Killzone Mercenaries looks 1000x better.
for sure. i was really anticipating Declassified, im already thinking of not even picking it up... they know its all about the online, they shoulda focused on that, clearly they didnt.4v4 on a cod game? what IS that. killzone it is.
Nihilistic? Oh gawd! *cancels pre-order*
Killzone looked absolutely amazing. I can't wait for it.
And that COD trailer was odd. What does it say of Vita when Activision itself would rather hand over its cherished IP than dirty its own hands with development? Well, it says what even Sony itself has admitted. This is looking bad. Again its like the PS3 all over again. Sony needs to work magic with its own IPs & exclusives to revitalize the Vita. But then again when did any CoD game boasted graphics quality?
Or maybe (and this is hopeful thinking) one of Activision's studios is working on next years version for the Vita and they plan to alternate every other year. Sony probably wanted COD launch year, so they used one of their own studios to make it happen. From the trailer, it doesn't look like Nihilistic had enough time or resources to work on it. Hopefully, future CODs will feature a bit more polish, for Sony's sake.
I have iphone games that look better than cod on the vita..what the hell.I was hoping it was gonna acully be similar to the console version with 8v8 and maybe looked better than a cell phone game...
Medal of Honor on PSP did 24 players almost 5years ago. Activision has shown evilon a whole new level.
One thing I was surprised with was Wonderbook. It's definitely not for me, but I can see the huge amount of potential it has in Classrooms especially for younger students. Interactive learning is the future, and Wonderbook is taking a step in the right direction, giving kids education and problem solving skills in each game. The move games were nearly as impressive. This was a great show for Sony.
What a freaking smart thing to say. " Haven't read the article yet." God, when will N4G users become smart and read the articles for crying out loud. OT: i thought the best thing was the Last of Us trailer, i didnt care for the DMC or Dead Space really. They showed the same scenes they played at E3 but with different actions, a clear response to those saying that the E3 footage was scripted. Release this game already damnit!
Tear away looked awesome
And yet millions wil buy COD for Vita :)
Vita COD is being made by Nihilistic Software, people who made Resistance Burning Skies for Vita
Just like how Burning Skies wasn't worth $45. I will never make that mistake again. Shame on you Nihilistic.
Statement of the year...
Nihilistic team has to be fired! For me im happy there is killzone!!!!!
Nihilistic software are making Black ops on the vita? Awww no, why get a studio that hasnt made a good game in over 10 years work on what is one of the biggest games for the device?
Alot of people are going to be disapointed. :D poor Vita owners such a waste of money. Bioshock for Vita hopefully will justify its purchase.
i'm tight... like literally the Only developer i DIDN'T want making the game, the mechanics in Resistance were horrible.
My purchase was justified with The Show, Gravity Rush, Sound Shapes, and Super Stardust. PSP games like P3P, Everyday Shooter, Yggdra Union, Tactics Ogre, and others also validated my investment. So did apps like Youtube, facebook, nico nico, Paint Park, and Skype. Upcoming games like P4 The Golden, Tearaway, PS All Stars, Soul Sacrifice, Warrior's Lair, Zero's Escape, Killzone, and Ragnarok Odyssey ensure that I'll continue getting my money's worth out of the system. There's also still full PS1 and Remote Play support to look forward to. I don't think ANY current Vita owners were waiting on Call of Duty to "justify" their purchases. We've been having plenty of fun with what we have, and eagerly await the quality still to come.
Yeah i'm so sad I play my vita everyday lol and the release game UC2 abyss is better than anything offered on any other handheld and that was just a launch title lol vita kz3, vita assassins creed, vita uncharted, vita soul sacrifice, new media molecule game ask say Hellooooooo so dad the person who's mommy didn't want to buy them a vita lol haha
Not really. CoD is a shit franchise at this point and I didn't buy my Vita hoping to play it. I got it for AC Liberation, LBP, Ragnarok Odyssey, Gravity Rush, Resistance, Uncharted, and some sports games. And now Killzone and Tearaway.
Killzone Mercenary looks half-decent.
It looks awesome if you ask me.
wait games-con is today? holy shit.. lol
Rain and KZ: Mercenary look amazing!
Nihilistic has proven (once again) that they should probably leave the gaming industry. Killzone, even for what little game footage they showed, looks awesome so far, so I am now looking forward to that in terms of an FPS.
I agree with Hicken....we Sony system owners do not buy a system for one game. Yes that COD trailer looked terrible. But by any means does that mean the Vita was a waste. It's a successor all successors have bumps along the way in their new campaigns
Disagree. I bought a ps3 for MGS4 and I would buy a vita just for Killzone: Mercenary
How old are you 12?? After you beat those games you go on sites like this and say consoles don't make enough games. That's some Xbox stuff get that out of here.
Try 22. I don't even know what kind of point your trying to make. Especially since you are putting words into my mouth I never said. "That's Xbox stuff?" Oh really? I doubt you could beat me at any of the games I own.
What I don't understand is that my old laptop with 64Mb Intel integrated graphics can run cod 4 with full 16 player matches with better graphics and yet these people cant use a powerhouse of a portable console to make the game look remotely good and if it looks that bad why does it only have 4v4 makes no sense.
Lol, complaining about the graphics of a COD game.
"The best thing I saw at Gamescom today: Dead Space 3 EA certainly had the most impressive press conference today, at least if solely measured by eardrum-rupturing volume. Fortunately, they had some great games on hand that made temporary hearing loss more palatable. My favorite game from EA’s presentation was Dead Space 3—but just barely. Criterion’s Need for Speed: Most Wanted looks like a deliriously fun racing game, and SimCity is bound to scratch my city-planning itch (it’s in a tough-to-reach spot, too). That said, seeing Isaac Clarke work his way through a ship as it was torn apart in space was exhilarating. As glass cracked and popped all around him and he was thrown into zero gravity and back again, it proved that the necromorphs aren’t his only threats. Plus, we finally got to see how he puts on his now-iconic RIG suit. Come to find out, he does it just like the rest of us—one leg at a time." This makes me happy, Dead Space 3 please don't suck :( Dead Space 1 and 2 where great! I still need to replay dead space 2 in new game+ but everytime i go on I get distracted by the multiplayer where I own like a boss! Edit: LOL @ COD
I hate they have that black ops game more attention and detail than the Killzone: Mercs game. We haven't heard a peep about this game!
When do we get to see all the neat cool inovative 360 games at gamescom? Im excited to hear all about our exclusive new IPs coming between now and early 2013. I hope they save some blockbusting title announcements for TGS! One can only be sated by new Halo news and indie games for so long after such a dry retail spring/summer/coming fall. Nah just kidding. This years been crushing to Sony with our 1st and 2nd party games like Sleeping Dogs, Spec Ops the line, and who can forget Max Payne 3! Its never been better to be a 360 owner! Anyone up for a game of Deadlight?!
