Looks pretty good. Still got a bit of the chin down eyes up thing going, but I can live with that.

This box art slices me in all the right ways.

I hate the box art because it doesnt say ps vita. The game seems good from the demo I played on the ps3 but the only way I'd buy this game is if its on the ps vita. Anyway, carry on people. Hopefully you all are satisfied with the game and box art

Steel chin down, red glowing eye up.

Can't wait to see the EU box art, no offence to you US guys, but the whole grumpy protagonist looking seriously off into the horizon thing you guys normally get just doesn't do anything for me.

So this is a nice refreshing change! If even the US is getting kick-ass box art, then i can only imagine the EU one will be just as epic, if not more so =P

I love this box art!

And I have to agree that I am getting sick of short brown haired guys with guns starring off into the yonder...

Agree, I'm in the US and I usually like EU covers better.
FrightfulActions  +   991d ago
EU box arts are almost always better, imo. That's what surprises me so much about this one. I actually love it. I'm impressed. If the US boxart is this good I wonder if the EU version will still be able to top it.

They are the same for EU and US.

Now thats what i call box art its been awhile since ive seen boxart that made me say wow thats not generic at all, im actually really surprised, by how good this is, especially seeing as how we in the US get the crappy boxart.

Now THAT cover will make people buy the game.
ChipChipperson  +   992d ago
Gotta admit, not too bad. Although, I wish they did do something similar like with some of the previous titles where they had that very elegant looking concept art by Yoji Shinkawa on the cover. There's some of the early concept art of Rising, and it looked amazing.

There is one steelbook with Shinkawa art, that one looks very nice. There's also a LE which looks a bit similar.

I like that one also but immediately got a Terminator vibe from it.

ORANGE AND BLUE

ORANGE AND BLUEEEEE

yeah, generic colors but the boxart really looks good and professionally done. and there's not really that much of orange.

also, the whole stance of the protagonist is good, not generic except chin down eyes up.
SolidGear3  +   992d ago
I approve ^_^
League_of_Draven  +   992d ago
It looks mediocre much like the actual game. Very fitting.
r21  +   992d ago
That looks bad ass to be honest :D
This isnt about the box art itself but I wonder if the missing left eye is a nod to Solidus Snake? It would certainly make sense
RyuX19  +   991d ago
Grey Fox lost one of his eyes as well.
I know I just meant since Raiden and Solidus have such a connected past I thought it may be relevant
bayonetta  +   991d ago
looks amazing
BananaEatingSquid  +   991d ago
Wow, I actually like this a lot! Looks cool, man.
Deadpool616  +   991d ago
Now that's a refreshing piece of box art. It also represents the game quite nicely.
LAWSON72  +   991d ago
Wow a good box art cant wait for demo to see if i should buy it
CaitSith  +   991d ago
Cool!
rpd123  +   991d ago
Guys...this is still pretty damn generic. Grim looking protagonist with weapon of choice.
shivvy24  +   991d ago
i have the weirdest BONER right now
JohnApocalypse  +   991d ago
A million times better then the Bioshock Infinite boxart
Spacemagic  +   991d ago
They should have raiden with a gun over his shoulder
andshesays  +   991d ago
It looks great but one thing

Why does the bandana/eyepatch look like its been placed in last second as its sticking out to me?
Wait, people are having a boner over box art? Man console kids are easily amused.
LOL_WUT  +   991d ago
The boxart looks awesome but thats pretty much it
josh50187  +   991d ago
lame ass box art is lame maybe its because im not a raiden fan?
WeskerChildReborned  +   991d ago
