Sony expects Resistance 2 to go "toe-to-toe against Gears of War 2" in the battle for your money this Christmas, according to US VP of product marketing Scott Steinberg.
um what about kz2.can we get sum new info jeez
Don't know who will win this time. I will probably be getting both games. But one thing i do know is epic is going to have to work way harder this time if they want to have the same impact they did when they first hit. The graphics margin between the two games have thinned significantly and resistance has pretty much doubled their features. Gears 2 is still pretty much a mystery but i don't think gears will be sweeping resistance under the rug this time
at 1.1 gears didn't sweep resistance under the rug. resistance whips gears in weapons, story, and huge battles. at. 1 i'm with you man. we need some new KZ2 info or it's looking more and more like it slips to '09.
lol i played gears exactly a week after i got my ps3 at my friends house. The combination of cover based gameplay and those awesome graphics were unmatched to make gears easily the number 1 shooter for that yr. But like i said everything that made gears a success has basically been done before. So i am still sketchy on how much i will enjoy the next gears
hey skrilla, I am getting the feeling that either its not coming out this year or it will just be released and Sony will say "here you go". However, Seb Downey suggested a closed beta for it and we havent heard squat about that. I dont know if they scrubbed the beta or it just hasnt started yet. However, if they are planning on it coming out this year they had better get on it. This no info crap has gotten me very skeptical about KZ2.
Especially in weapons. Did anyone else play through Gears with practically one gun, except for those certain moments where you HAD to use the Dawn Hammer or something else specific. Weapons in Gears were a huge letdown that no one ever mentions. Most the time, only the rifle was useful so you just pretty much stick to that RfoM's weapons on the other hand were innovative, plentiful, balanced, great secondary fire modes, and THANK YOU Insomniac for dropping this stupid notion everyone copies since Halo that you can only carry 2 or 3 guns. BAH. Its a shooter, i want to be able to carry everything I find so when I come across a certain area I can decide which weapon I want to tackle it with, not just what I have on me or what laying close around. Definitely adds another layer of strategy to the gameplay and lets you tackle the same area many different ways. Brilliant move too, to give new weapons on the 2nd play through. Insomniac you rule.
Resistance 1 = 2.5 million with a 10 million install base (dont forget Resistance was a bundled game).Morover it had no competition. Geow 1 = 4.5 million with a 10 million install base (never been bundled and on a machine saturated with shooters) Wonder who's going to be beat who ? What a tough question. Someone help me out please.
By the time of Resistance 2's launch PS3 would already have an install base of 10 million in europe alone. x360's base would dwindle even further since 60% of x360s purchased in Europe have been traded in for either PS3/Wii. Resistance 2 will sell 5m in europe alone. Gears will sell around 500k there. Resistance will easily sell around 2.5m/3m in NA in 2008. However Resistance will easily surpass 10m in worldwide sales AT THE END OF ITS TENURE
Wasn't Gears and Resistance released in the same month so your saying at that time frame they both had 10 million ownwers for each console?
I beat Resistance, and several times at that, primarily using the carbine, so what? Same damn thing. Resistance's weapons were a bunch of smoke and mirrors. They were mostly automatic, and just different ways to do damage. There weren't many status effects, reality warping, or game changing weapons. They were all different ways to attack the enemies. None of the enemies had any unique weakness either, so every single weapon did it's default damage, except for the flame thrower, against every single enemy in the game. Even the bosses could be wasted by simply circle strafing and firing at them. At least Gears had good boss fights, and this is coming from a PS3 owner.
This will be an Epic game come this Nov. @nicholascage24 - If that was true, then when Gears 2 comes out, everyone will trade there PS3 back in for a Xbox 360, simple as that! $nipe
Resistance was an unknown game to many people and I did not know much about it; only that it was made by Insomniac. Resistance wasn't even hyped and it sold multi-millions. Imagine Resistance 2 with a lot of hype and an even bigger install base of ps3s...I would say it is going to be a close race with gears. Can't get enough of both games online.
2.5 out of 10 million is the current number. For resistance. If you are going to stay current your number of Geow 1 = 4.5 million with a 10 million install base is incorrect. That number should 4.5 with a 18 million install base. Percentage wise they are both at about 25%.
Sony is trying to release Killzone as a sleeper.
Sigh, there 2 completely different types of games, why the hell are they been compared.
I loved Resistance and believe that the second will outdue it in just about every area, but I still believe that with the 360 hardware count. Gears will sell quite a bit more. I enjoyed Gears as well. I hope I'm wrong.
i still remember vividly when they both launched and im gonna be gettin R2 for sure, but God i hope they advertise.... thats key, everytime i turned around it was another commercial for gears and i never saw any for resistance. but if it outdoes gears with no advertising thats really sayin somethin!
agreed. sony needs to get their advertising game up. When msoft wants to launch a game everyone will know about it but even with uncharted there were still ppl that hadnt heard of it week of realease. Sony needs to advertise more. The only decently advertised sony exclusive i have seen is probably ratchet and clank.
Dark Sniper just stating the facts. $nipe
Resistance 2 will sell more than Gears 2 and Alan Wake combined **based solely on europe's sales***
R1 didn't even try to compete with anything. lawlz. PR Guys need to shut up once in awhile.
You are an idiot. SONY did NOT have a fanbase of 10 million when Resistance released. 360 already had over 10 million when Gears came out. Gears 2 will only sell a lot in the U.S. but the U.S. is NOT the world. I say Resistance 2 will outsell Gears 2 overall world wide. Gears 2 will just have the same graphics as Gears 1 with only a bit more detail and much LOWER frames per second.

woopie fuc*** do did ya see that list of games wow ne who i cant wait for SOCOM 4 the game will blow all games out of the water then back in CUZ POWER OF GREEN USUALLY TURNS INTO POWER OF RED MOST OF YER 360 WONT EVEN MAKE IT FOR GTA WHEN THEY ALL CRASH DURING THE LOADING PROCESS 360 GAMERS HAVE NO ALTERNATE SAME GARBAGE AND NO TRUE COLORS
GEARS OF WARS WILL BE A SUCCESS BUTTHERE ARE SO MANY GOOD GAMES COMMING OUT FOR PS3 THAT NOT EVERYBODY CANT AFFORD TO BUY EACH AND VERY ONE THATS WHY PS3 GAMES DONNT GO THRU THE ROOF, LOOK AT UNCHARTED THAT GAME HAD JAW DROPPING GRAPPHICS INCRADIBLE GAME PLAY AS WELL ,HALO 3 WAS PURE JUNK, ATARI LIKE GRAPHICS AND IT WAS SOLD ON HYPE THATS ALL, 360 FANS ONLY HAVE FEW GAMES TO CHOOSE FROM ASIDE FROM SPORTS GAMES THAT WHY YOU BIRDS BUY MASS AMOUNTS OF THOSE GAMES LIKE HALO 3 GOW 2 AND WHAT ELSE. REALLY WHAT ELSE DO U GUYS GOT U COULNDT EVEN GET THE HD MOVIES, 360 RUSHED THAT PIECE OF GARBAGE MACHINE SO THEY COULD GET A HEADSTART MEANLINNESS IN THE END IT COST THEM MILLIONS TO FIX. MAN U GUYS WASTE MY TIME PLAY B3YOND
killzone oh killzone where art thou? r2 will rock but i still want my kz2
KZ2 has no competition! it's 10 years ahead of any FPS game!
High Definition down load movies on live IS the answer to blu-ray.
Is MS HD download their answer?! Or what about the MILLIONS of people with dial-up connections? And what about MY answer to sharing MY bought HD movies with whomever I want to WHERE EVER I WANT TO? Is MS HD download MY answer? NO! And the millions apon millions of others like me...NO!
are you for real man?? hahaha dial-up conections? hey i live ina third world country and i haven't see a dial-up conections for ages hahaha, find another excuse
"And what about the MILLIONS of people without internet connections?" Those people probably can't afford BR either.
25 Gb for true HD film, i download 2 films on the net and i bust my maximum transfer (30Gb by month). i can only buy 1 film by month and 5 Gb donload for my month ? Blu-Ray is there for me.
I have Dial-up internet how am i going to watch movies with out blu-ray @ 3.3 Living in the middle of nowhere dosent make me poor
and also have many questions left for 360! will 360 manage to answer all those questions? i have doubts about it! but truth is that am more interested in killzone 2, the graphics and lighting were amazing! so i hope there will be more to see soon!
Compete to a game we dont even hardly know alot about. yeah great artical :/ lol
60 online multiplayer.
Boy, you said a mouthful. I don't expect Gears 2 to handle anything more than 25 players online, and thats high-balling it.
Hell, I'll be surprised if GeOW2 has 16 player online.
I doubt they would go over 16 anyway because of that. I'm really excited about Res 2 though Insomniac is one of the best devevelopers. Can't wait to see how the 60 player works.
well too bad i dont have a 360 but i know ill be getting resistance 2
Why does everyone say Gears will be the best looking game? I think it's just another horrible masterpiece with the Unreal Engine. Gears has to compete with Killzone 2 and Resistance 2, but more preferable Resistance 2. The Genius has spoken.
Like Unreal Tournament 3 ?
UT:III is better looking than Gears was and UT3 isnt the best looking game on the PS3, not by a long shot. I wouldnt expect Gears2 to look miles ahead of the first, but it is still going to be jawdropping.
If Gears 2 has all of the stuff the UE3 tech demo is showing...then it should be great...and will easily hold its own... however...imo...the tech demo did more to downplay the first Gears of War and UT3 more than anything...they announced upcoming features, of which most people didn't even realize were not in the engine already...destructible environments will be nice...but the water effects, and the updated lighting do nothing but just make the engine competitive again...and even with the updated lighting, it still doesn't come close to other fully dynamic models...KZ2 will no doubt be the king of lighting for quite some time...that is if it...I can't even say it...I read your earlier post dude...I hope the lack of news for the game is only related to the fact that SCE was not treating GDC as a venue for showing off titles...and more for just the developers...I was hoping for a RES 2 trailer as well, which we didn't get...hopefully the lack of anything on either game is no reason for alarm... they advertised real time water reflections like it was an Apple commercial as well...'Let us show you what other guys have been doing for a while now, but pretend like we are pioneering it'... with that said though...the soft body physics does look cool...and have yet to see that running in any other engines...so at least one thing new is being done with UE3 from what I can tell...
And we all know how that ended
but resistance was the the BETTER game. deal with it edit: at 13- yea, maybe some of those rumors that GG has screwed this project up are true? i don't think so and hope it isn't true, but they need to come with some info. and not more news about action figures! we want real game info. and where is that online beta we were "supposed" to get "eary in '08"?
R1 is a launch title from a dev that is well know for making excellent platformers. Gears came 1 year after the x360 was out with about 9-10million consoles. Also Gears is developed by EPIC the developers of the unreal engine and one of the most respected FPS makers in the market. This time around the PS3 should almost catchup to the x360 by the end of the year and alot of PS fans know Resistance by now. Sales wise gears 2 should sell more but only because of MS marketing and the fact that the x360 fans are FPS/shooter obsessed.
exactly. since resistance was a LAUNCH title and managed to be a multimillion franchise, who knows whatll happen with R2.
dammit i want kz2 info.how is it that we know more about r2 thn kz2.its crazy.I wanted to see kz2 vs geow2 dammit
Rachet & Clank Eye of Judgement Flow Tori Emaki MGS4 GoW3 ?
Rachet & Clank- This year BK3 Eye of Judgement- Ya call me when this matters Flow- It was a PC flash game first Tori Emaki- What is this? MGS4- No GoW3- Not coming out this year
Eye of Judgement- Ya call me when this matters ___ It matters because it pertains to the discussion. The 360 has no "Eye of Judgement" Flow- It was a PC flash game first ___ Doesn't mean it failed. Its one of the top downloaded games on PSN. Tori Emaki- What is this? ___ I'm not your mom, do your research MGS4- No ___ NO? LOL! GoW3- Not coming out this year ___ Doesn't matter if its coming out this year or not, its awesomeness is unparalleled.
This is open zone topic. And for the record Splinter Cell is the answer to MGS4. GOW3- We get Ninja Gaiden 2, and Too Human.
what are you talking about? splinter cell is a piece of $hit. it isnt no match for a franchise like metal gear which has gotten a metascore of 9+ for EVERY title so far. and theres no way that MGS4 will get something lower than a 9 because its controls and gameplay have been modified and improved. MGS4 will be a multimillion title. MGS4 FTW!!!
Splinter Cell is the answer to MGS4, as far as stealth games go, and its probably the only game that can be compared to MGS. And Splinter Cell series 1-3 on the Xbox has a combined metacritic average score of about the same as the MGS series 1-3 on PS2... both over 9+
ok, splinter cell is the only other stealth game on the market...but does it even compare to MGS series? NO, it doesnt. The mgs series have a deep storyline, awesome scenes, deep gameplay. there is virtually NOTHING wrong with the past MGS games except for the controls. and that is because Kojima productions is an eastern based studios. the contols arent western friendly...but it will soon change with the release of MGS4. and also, splinter cell is made by a ghetto studio (i.e. Ubisoft Montreal)
Is there any such thing as an MGS fan that likes Splinter Cell or vice versa? I played MGS for the Gamecube and that was enough to convince me that this series wasnt for me. I still dont understand the appeal of it, but thats just me I suppose. Guys with big frikkin guns spending 10 minutes of cut scenes talking about their feelings doesnt do it for me, but, hey, what do I know? I suppose an engaging story of political intrigue with an interesting lead character who sneaks around and breaks peoples necks isnt fun for some people. Go figure. Oh, and yeah, btw, all 4 Splinter Cell games have had great reviews, all above 9 from most sources. Chaos Theory was arguably the best game for Xbox.
Gears will succeed with MS's over the top marketing you wont be able to switch on your TV without seeing a GoW2 advert. Lets just hope Sony market the hell out of Resistance. Resistance 2 will be the better game though i think, story & content wise. Graphically we will have to see. We havent seen footage of R2 yet.
Sonys hit titles are all FPS's, Huxley will be Resistance 2's anwser if multi player is the factor of those titles. GoW 2 will be unstopable its already going to out shine PS3 titles by default. Sony has nothing...
lol, come on, even you don't believe any of your own dribble.
You are in denial.
U fool, sony already gave out their GoW2, for the PS2. Microsoft is falling behind.
But all the 360 has is Gears. PS3 will have Resistance 2 + Little Big Planet + MGS4, and maybe Killzone 2? I think it's pretty obvious who wins this holiday :D
But all the 360 has is Too Human + Sabotage + Gears 2 + NG2 + Fable 2 + Alan Wake + Left For Dead + GTA4 and episode 1 + Splinter cell + APB + Halo wars and possibly the other Halo title? and more. PS3 will have Resistance 2 + Little Big Planet + MGS4, and maybe Killzone 2? and more. Those PS3 titles are going to get crushed in comparison. Sabotage slams Resistance visually. Folks are busting a nut over APB. You better hope it was GoW2 that was suppose to be the MGS4killer that was suppose to have the best visuals ever created on a console.
you do understand he was stating big games that matter this year not Alan Wake: a game wont release this year Left For Dead: a zombie game will sell but were talking big hitters GTA4?: are you kidding me episodic content is your big hitter exclusive? Splinter Cell: is crap compared to Mgs4 in all ways possible and is not a big hitter Halo Wars: an Rts without keyboard and mouse support? fail APB: the original had to have a trial for halo in it to sell at all Ninja Gaiden: will sell about as good as dmc4 which is not really a heavy hitter either Fable 2: possible heavy hitter the only thing solid you listed was gears that was it Mgs4,R2,LBP, and killzone are all heavy hitting and were not even talking about SOCOM,Tekken and White knight story all huge heavy hitting franchises with past history and are well known by all
way to miss out tons PS3 titles in 08 and list EVERY SINGLE 360 title as a way to spread propaganda "look at these idiot fighting over who's TOY is better" i believe you said that a couple times POG- you damn hypocrite and since you like lists so much: PS3 upcoming exclusives in 08 or possibly 08: MGS4 White Knight Story Haze Killzone 2 Resistance 2 Little Big Planet Motorstorm 2 Gran Turismo 5 Infamous The Getaway 3 Heavy Rain Eight Days NBA 09 (i think) MLB 08: The Show SOCOM Confrontation The Agency (+PC) Metal Gear Online EyeDentify (i think) NCSoft MMO's (+PC) AngelLoveOnline (+PC) Ni-Oh (i think) Star Ocean 4 (i think) Disgaea 3 (already released) Everybody's Golf 5 Yakuza 3 Buzz! Quiz TV PS3 exclusives in 09 (currently confirmed): God of War 3 Twisted Metal PS3 Syphon Filter PS3 Final Fantasy 13 Final Fantasy versus 13 LA Noire Red Dead Revolver 2 Uncharted 2 SOCOM 4 Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier Ratchet and Clank Future 2 Zone of the Enders 3 (it's going to happen people) Trico (working title for the team ICO game) Secret Sony game i probably missed some out so feel free to add in the ones i missed and you fail because Sabotage is a multi-platform game
so whats all the fuss with Res 2 , Huxley has way more to offer.
And in denial. How can you possibly say that? 360 has much much more than just gears of war son. Not to mention the online portion of the console.
oops missed out Tekken 6 @LaChance man i thought you weren't ignorant? Huxley is an MMOFPS and therefore has a different style to Resistance Resistance has fewer people, but with a much higher emphasis on tactics and teamwork while Huxley is just shoot at all the random people to earn EXP Huxley isn't in NEARLY the same league as Res graphics-wise too
He'll be back with some more BS though. Lol, he was definitely getting mad.
