um what about kz2.can we get sum new info jeez

sonarus3250d ago

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

beavis4play3250d ago

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.

sonarus3250d ago

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

TheExecutive3250d ago

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.

LaChance3250d ago

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.

nicholascage243250d ago

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

jwatt3250d ago

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?

Genki3250d ago

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.

DarkSniiper3250d ago (Edited 3250d ago )

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!

Bubble Buddy3250d ago

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.

kornbeaner3250d ago

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.

AliC3249d ago

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.

pharmd3250d ago

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!

sonarus3250d ago

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.

DarkSniiper3250d ago

Dark Sniper just stating the facts.

zambrota3250d ago

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.

MADGameR3249d ago

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.
