Breath-taking new videos from several PS3 exclusive titles, including Resistance - Fall of Man, Lair and Motorstorm.
I'm always left feeling like I want more. I'm just not impressed at all. But Motostorm looks great but dose not seem complete with out rumble.
I promise every time I look at any PS3 footage I want to see some thing that changes my mind but it never happens.
If I piss off any Sony fan boys just click the disagree button and you save your self from trying to convince me I'm wrong to feel like the PS3 is boring.
i have felt the same way.
I agree with you a 100%, it does make you feel like you should get more out of the system. But then I see a game like MotorStorm which makes me say "Now that's a F*ckin great game." I look forward to seeing what the PS3 could actually do and I'm hoping it won't disappoint.
I don't see why so many people are ranting over Genji/Lair... Those don't impress me.
MotorStorm and Resistance look like fun... Looks like someof my friends and I would enjoy it.
I mean Yeah, they don't make me go "HERES 600$ !!!"
But me and my Xbox 360 have had fun. But Blu-Ray seems it's going to be worth it. Oblivion could add all of those extra actors (instead of the usual 5?)
Considering the rate that Motorstorm and Resistance have been jumping in terms of visual and gameplay quality, Lair will definitely improve. I think it's imperative however that Factor 5 do away with the targeting system and fireballs. Instead they should aim to make the game feel exactly like the target trailer and focus on physical combat between the dragons and humans.
Resistance looks amazing as always.
Genji looks passable.
Motorstorm's still kicking ass.
The flight footage of Warhawk looks really majestic, but I think they really need to bump up the ground combat and visuals a bit. It's not coming out till Summer '07 so they still have time.
You are all ripping on games that you have not seen in high def, have never played, have not even seen played on screen in real time. And these games are for a system that you hate, don't own, and will never own. I can smell the fanboyism.
Just like many 360 games (like Dead Rising for instance) look like crap until you play it. Don't even try to tell me that Dead Rising has anything close to next gen graphics. But it doesn't really matter does it? It plays well and it's fun. Lair looks better than many of the 360 games I own but I don't care that much about it. I really care about how well it plays.
Gears may look awesome, but I don't care how good it looks if it has a lot of framerate issues - not saying it does, I'm just saying that I'm holding back my "Oh my God Gears is the best game ever because it just looks cool and I'm a fanboy that loves to pass judgment on everything I see and before I actually play."
Wow, the 360 fanboys are the worst crowd because they really love to pass judgment on a system that isn't even released. They really love to pass judgment on something that they will probably never even try. . . WOW
"Gears, Lost Planet, COD3, Too Human, Mass Effect, Huxley, Forza 2, Fable 2, Halo 3, Halo Wars "
Not ONE game that he mentioned has been released. He did not MENTION ONE game thats already out, just some far off future games with the exception of GOW. Which comes out a full year after the launch of the 360. Thats just pathetic.
Just imagine the games of PS3 a year from now, get over it people, the PS3 is gonna kill 360.
Thats why MS is practically giving the 360's away.
Blu-Ray, PS3 will own the market.
jin, please be kind... dead rising, Graw, fight night, oblivion, cod2, geometry wars, prey, and splinter cell:da are all great games as well...
And also remember that NO ps3 game is out yet... and the games he listed are not that far off... GOW is next month along with COD 3 and lost planet is coming in January, forza 2 in february... so they are coming soon.
So please, think before you post... its a shame that you don't.
I thought it was still coming on NOV 11th.
That is what my EB tells me !!
Oh well, as much as it would suck, I would rather wait a bit and have it at 110% rather than a game I am pissed off at because of what it COULD HAVE BEEN.
I am glad Oblivion was delayed ... it only proves my point that waiting a bit longer is not a bad thing.
Waiting almost and extra YEAR for something ... well .... not so happy with that
You 360 gamers at news4Gamers are so sad sometimes I even question if you can actually see, are you sure you don't get everything translated?
I own a 360 and these are out of this world compared to it, I brought TestDriveUnlimited the other day and it's a load of rubbish WORSE than PGR. So what makes you think the next gen of your PC ports are going to be any better gameplay wise and graphically wise? I meen damn the PS3 developers have only had the kits for 6 months now. The market has already shown to support Sony you are so Dreamcasted. I might start saving user names so I can rub it in a years time. Give up already peeps and enjoy both consoles.
I was impressed by the videos. I own a 360 and enjoy it. I am a fan of technology and games and the PS3 looks to not disappoint me. I don't care to much for the Genji game, but I didn't care for the first one either. The others look amazing. They will only get better also. As for all this arguing, it is pointless. I just had to put a positive spin in this forum. Those titles looked fantastic.
Thankyou to big tim the main point being you can own both consoles you know I will be doing, were all gamers right just enjoy what each system has to offer. They both have positives in there own right.
Genji does look good, but it doesn't really interest me. Resistance looks good, but there's already so many FPS, I don't think it will stand out amongst them. Warhawk? no, for some reason. I saw screenshots for Lair awhile ago, and it really "wowed" me...but when I see it in action, it doesn't do anything for me, *sighs*. Motorstorm is the only one to truly impress me on a couple different levels. Now I have to ask myself, "Would I pay $600 to be able to play Motorstorm?" No, not this year. Maybe next year Sony.
Good videos..and the funny thing is it`s not launched yet and we already have good games.i wonder what it will be when tittles like GOD OF WAR ,SOCOM ,GT RACING ,KILLZONE,TAKKEN,JACK&DEXT ER,METAL GEAR,DEVIL MAY CRY,HEVEANLY SWORD ..begin their entrance ..oh boy!
for me GoW not good with 8 players nah.... probably just rent it
I'd rather have a well thought concept with 8 players online and proven to work, then the Sony way 40 players (do you even notice anymore how much is happening on screen?) and the game dies of lag because it can't cope especially when it has no unified Service with things running through multiple services like PNP, X-Fire, Gamespy, updated PS2 online network won't support the games very well does it.
It's not always: more = better. But you'll know when Gears is on demopods right besides Resistance. And you'll turn into a believer
Actually the people that have actually PLAYED Resistance online with 40 people across multiple continents have stated that there is no lag. Your inferences about the Playstation Network Platform are incorrect, Xfire and the others may be used by the devs if they choose to use them, or they can use the Playstation Network Platform only. Those are in addition to and be running in the background with the PNP, they won't be replacing Sony's online service.
And I highly doubt that either of those will be on demo-pods, at least not in the US. I asked Ted Price from Insomniac on his IGN Blog about that and his response is as follows: "two good questions. Unfortunately I don't know the answer to either. I don't know what the plans are for "demo pods" and whether or not Resistance would be included. If there are such things as demo pods, whether a Resistance demo shows up is probably dependent on where the demo is being shown. As a note, over the past few years I don't think there have been many M-rated demos showing up in major retail establishments."
First of all:
"... then the Sony way 40 players (do you even notice anymore how much is happening on screen?) and the game dies of lag because it can't cope..."
Unfounded and wrong accusation. At TGS just a month ago Resistance was played with 40 players online over the Playstation Network. Half were at the TGS while the other half were gametesters in the US halfway around the globe. No lag were reported by any media or attendee.
"... especially when it has no unified Service with things running through multiple services like PNP, X-Fire, Gamespy, updated PS2 online network won't support the games very well does it."
The Playstation Network is a unified service in the same way as XBL is. One screenname with one login. GameSpy is a partner in developing the service as announced more than six months ago.
What you are obviously referring to is the recent announcement of X-Fire striking a deal with SOE and Sony for middleware. This is for the few games for which crossplatform (PS3 and PC) gaming and chatting ingame would be a feature or developers with a strong PC following.
"It's not always: more = better. But you'll know when Gears is on demopods right besides Resistance. And you'll turn into a believer"
Well... It's not like "less = better" either. GoW will probably be amazing, but so will Resistance. It's two different types of games although sort of related.
Andy and Lala, you'd really think Sony would risk the real PNP network to disturb and get down on a demo on a show? For real. Those are optimalized in 'laboratorium-like circumstances'.
In reality it will be a whole lot different I'll bet.
But that aside. Go and read the just posted hands-on on Gears of War from Hexus on this site. "we were quite literally stunned. I exchanged a few glances with the HEXUS.gaming Editor Nick Haywood which was enough to tell the story. We didn’t have to say anything; it was the language of the gamer, the twinkle in his eye, and his ever widening smile that told me that he was thinking exactly what I was thinking. It was a moment where I just wanted to lay bare my inner emotions and shout at the top of my voice. It was moment that defied all logic as I struggled to come to terms with how the first moments of a videogame had messed with my soul. I literally took up position behind the cover of a car and sat there shaking my head in disbelief, frozen with awe, but occasionally brave enough to take a few pot-shots at an enemy on the far side of the map. As a person who’s been gaming for 18 years, playing Gears of War is undoubtedly the highest I’ve ever felt. Forget drugs and alcohol, everything you need to get that adrenaline pumping is coming our way in November. "
Now after seeing the latest footage of the PS3 games, nothing comes close to that guys
So basically you're basing your argument that the Playstation Network Platform is laggy and buggy off of your own assumptions, versus actual hands on time by the media at TGS that said there was no lag whatsoever?
No one is arguing that Gears of War is a bad game, we're just saying that Resistance looks great and will be a really good game. You're also comparing a game that is completely different than Resistance, and is coming out 1 year after launch of the XBox 360, versus a launch title for the PS3. If you want to compare MGS4 when it comes out to Gears of War, that is fine, but this is just silly. Aside from that, we haven't even seen any direct feed HD videos of Resistance yet. I can't wait to see those on Gametrailers.com, but it's probably going to be more toward the end of the month when the different gaming sites start getting their PS3 units.
Stay on topic and stop agruing with yourself. We understand that you're Xbox360 is superior to the PS3, maybe your Xbox360 is superior to my Xbox360?!
I want Sony to have success as well you bais retard.
Episode 1008- "Make Love, Not Warcraft"
I usually don't watch South Park but I remember seeing that episode ''Make live, Not Warcraft'' That has got to be the best episode of the series!
Lair looks like a blast. I am not and I don't think I will ever be impressed with the PS3 grapically and for good reason the PS3 looks like a leap and a jump better than the PS2 and that's good but it still feels like console graphics , I can't really explain it it's the textures and the AA and the edges , I've played too many games, I just notice.
The 360 on the other hand has games now and games on the way that have that PC graphical feel to them , like I said it's the architecture of the systems , I guess.
I'll think abut buying a PS3 after March , I need mor titles like Lair ( Wow ) , they need to get away from all the games with 4 , 5 , 6 and stuff in there titles.
as the PS3 has the more PC-like graphic "card" of the two consoles (although highly optimized for working in conjunction with the Cell processor).
Your subjective impression may be more because of a different approach by the developers or your own biased oppinion reflecting on your judgements.
--- sorry ---
--- sorry --- triplepost
Listen if you can't tell that thes games have a PS2 feel to them , I don't know what to tell you. I'm also confused on you statement of the PS3 being more PC like , with the Cell processor and the RSX chip. While the 360 is off the shelf proven PC components.
Lair looks cool. i think there is alot of potential there. As for the other games, ehh none of them look that interesting except motostorm. As for all the fanboys, you haven't played the ps3 games either so your opinion on how good they are just as invalid as people ripping on them.
to the guy ripping on test drive unlimited-
that is your fault, you should have downloaded the demo last month (like i did) and you would have never waisted money on that game. you are right it is rubbish but that is why there are demos so you can save $60 for something better (demos also saved me from buying blazing angels).
I for one am still having a blast with saints row and texas hold'em until GOW in a few weeks.
LAIR is simply OUT-OF-THIS-WORLD ! and as there is quite a lot of work left, we already know how much technically enhanced it is !!! all 360 fanboys are loving right now is the 'normal-mapped textures' placed on simply last-gen models like in gears of wars etc. a whole year and see what they're getting, only a part of America might like it but satisfying the rest of the world is simply out of hands for MS. The launch lineup is simply astounding in PS3's case, Resistance is as every critic has mentioned, a landmark of technical aspects with 40 players online and so on and the greatest thing that I see coming from PS3 that has absolutely no precedent on any other console is MotorStorm !!! really, its amazing to see that the devs got the final hardware just 3 or 4 months back and what physics based masterpiece thay've got there, simply stunning...I bet when devs actually learn to use PS3, 360 with all hopes of MS will be history !!!
Hey i voted for you to get more bubbles, could you help me out!!!
Lair and Motorstorm have vast potential. Impressed. I own a 360 and I love it, cant wait for the likes of Mass Effect and Gears of War but the PS3 will also be out soon and once I can spare some cash I will get one. Both systems will offer great games in their own right , fanboys have spoiled the gaming forums, its so mundane and embarrassing to read at times. "PS3 SUX ASS" "360 IS NOT NEXT GEN" etc etc. JUST ENJOY THE GAMES!!! THERE IS NO RULE SET IN STONE SAYING YOU CANNOT HAVE MORE THAN ONE GAMING SYSTEM!!!! I also intend on getting a Nintendo Wii but I'll wait till the reviews of future games and the virtua console library starts filling up first.
Someone who appreciates games for what they are and dont care what system its on or if its not next-gen or next-gen. Ive been on the not-a-fanboy side ever since I joined N4G. And there have maybe only been about 3 or 4 ppl like me come around and say, "Who cares, they play games and the games look sweet, and if you like it buy it". Then you get all these queer fanboys (TheMart, Jin,etc.) and then they say all this BS about "Oh PS3 with 40 players Online is lame, its gonna lag, again Sony has lost", and "Xbox 360 sucks, its no true next-gen". Like these comments are just so stupid, that Im just wondering why havent these mods(they are doing a great job) but maybe take a bubble away for every ridiculous stupid comment from a retaded fanboy. Every gamer should love games for what they do, Play Video Games. And if you have a problem with one system because you dont like its price, or you think it wont work, or you think all the tech is stupid, then your not a gamer. A True Gamer likes Games of all varieties, and doesnt choose to be on a fanboy side and have flame wars against other people of whom they hate and disagree upon just over games. You see us, we are in a special kind of fanboy class, thats the True Gamer Class, and its a shame everyone(mostly everyone) on this site has to be a whinny retarded fanboy. "Fanboys have ruined gaming for us true gamers", and how true is that.
Hyperbear, it would be nice if you could keep it general. Although I might be very XBOX oriëntated, I own a -dead- PS2. If Sony did things right, I would give them props. Like I did on first sight with Resistance.
I could as easily say that you posted some strange PS3 based articles as news. Which were actually advertorials.
So stick to the details, facts and opinions that I share. I really feel this way about PS3. I think Sony is not taking their customerbase seriously. If you want to keep it all in the middle be my guest. I want to be on the edge and keep things sharp towards the PS3. Because I believe it won't be the ultimate game machine as they say, but indeed a computer. Not optimal for the best games.
Enjoy your posts, I enjoy mine
Stay on topic and stop agruing with yourself. We understand that you're Xbox360 is superior to the PS3, maybe your Xbox360 is superior to my Xbox360?!
I want Sony to have success as well you bais retard.
Bhai you talk crap. If Gears of War was a PS3 exclusive you would be all over it. like a fly around dog crap.It looks incredible and deep down you know it. Same goes for Mass Effect. Dont be a fanboy for godsake, just enjoy gaming. How can the 360 not be next gen when it has games like Gears of War, Mass Effect and even looking at the demo of Assassins Creed, it looked amazing. Stop being childish. Both systems will offer fantastic gaming experiences in the future.
All u do is just skip a post were u know there only intention is to try and be an a-hole! Both consoles will be great bottom line and funny post by the way!
Colin McRae...Doesn't that game have 2 cars on the track @ once tops??LMAO. What a joke!Oh yeah it is on PS3 too,but I still think MS looks better and is doing alot more on screen to boot.:P
this has to be the worst forum in the gaming world, shame really as its an excellent website
I am an avid 360 gamer. I love it, love it, love it. The best thing about Gears of War for me is that it will definitely tide me over until the 17th, and I pick up my PS3. I even went out and bought some Blu-Ray movies and a $100 HDMI cord in anticipation.
However, I was looking at the POSSIBLE launch lineup, and I was concerned I had made a mistake. Maybe I plunked down my 600 bones a little too early. But those videos looked awesome. It will help me to rest easy. What appeared to be the cutscenes for Lair looked awesome, but the actual gameplay didn't do a lot for me. I am not saying it looked bad, but it didn't hold my attention. Resistance looks awesome. I cannot wait for that one. Motorstorm is by far my favorite, and it looks incredible. Warhawk looks nice, but I don't dig a lot of console flight games since I am a pilot for a living.
Watching those videos made me realize that NEITHER one of these consoles is going to fail. The PS3 is going to be extremely awesome, and the XBox360 has already made me happy. The real winner in the console war is all of us. Look at these kick ass consoles we get and neither should lose support midstream(i.e. Dreamcast).
When it comes right down to it, if the PS3 outsells the 360 or vice versa, why do ANY of us gamers care? Is Sony or MS going to share those profits with you? No, but they are both going to keep supporting two great systems.
Sorry for not including the Wii, but I am just not feeling it, yet.
You should definitely take back that $100 HDMI cable and get one cheaper online for less than $10. You can get a game and possibly another controller (for Xbox 360 or PS3) for the difference. There is no difference between a higher end HDMI cable and one of the Monster cables, other than the name. As long as the digital connection is unbroken, then you're fine. Obviously you shouldn't get something that is a piece of crap, but there are plenty out there for less than $10 that are great cables. Just do a Google search for "HDMI cables".
Good to hear you're happy with your pre-order, I wasn't fast enough to get mine in so I am going to try to reserve one online or get it at Sam's Club since my wife has a business membership so we can get in earlier than almost everyone.
Just think, maybe only 10 years ago the only optional accessory was an additional controller if you needed it, but today $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ $$$$$$$$$$.
All i'm gonna say is this you got stfu by Hyper Bear, you genuially believe all the stuff you say about PS3, ok, i genuially believe all the stuff i say about Xbox 360, LAME!
But seriously tho, I really hate fanboys who have the most biased comments about video games, contradict themselves and know sh!t all about what gaming, in general, is. I was just saying a piece of my mind and it got out there.
I am impressed by Lair...although I wish my laptopwould run the video's more smoothly...everything came across choppy on my end.
Anyway, the 1st vid had game play from Lair which looked pretty damn good but again was hard for me to judge given the choppy view I had. 2nd and 3rd for lair was all cut scenes and well..cut scenes are cut scenes.
Motorstorm could be a ton of fun. I am not a huge car/race guy so its an ok title for me but looks pretty decent. Again, if the video wasn't choppy off the feed maybe I would be more impressed.
RFOM, this is gonna be a nice PS3 shooter for you guys. Possibly the hold over for you until Killzone comes out. I dont doubt Killzone will be good btw...I am sure Sony is really making sure that titles shines after the debacle of the CGI thing in E3 '05.
Over all ...good things on the horrizon for the PS3.
I'm not saying it gonna be a Garbage game but do you really think its gonna be on par with Panzer Dragoon orta? or what if they release a new Panzer Dragoon on 360 will Sony fanboys even give the game the time of day?
Cause i know ya'll probably never played a single Panzer Dragoon game to understand this is what i see in lair.
Please people listen to what the Creators at Insominac is saying what the PS3 can do for it game. Listen closely i beg of you (Especially the part about the Pigeons).
Yeah...I got a chuckly out of that commentary. I think I understood where he was going with that but it just came across funny...
PS3 will allow us to have flying pigeons, running rats.... lol....funny to say the least.
I am not bashing PS3 mind you, just how the guy was trying to describe the additional content they could bring to the games feel.
I remember back in the early '90's when I used to defend Nintendo to no End. I even bought a Sega Master System, but continued to back Nintendo to no end (but loved Earthworm Jim). Then this 'lil upstart came along named Sony with a new console and level of gaming that I loathed simply because I was BLINDED and a loyal supporter to Nintendo. Oddly enough it was Nintendo's and Sony's joint venture - when working together on the Super Disk - that produced the first PlayStation. But before Kutaragi even got the Playstation off the ground there was a bevy of negative activity going on in the press & inside the offices of the little console makers office - especially after Nintendo told him to go get stuffed - so, there he was, Stuck and rejected with no Super Disc - A dissolved partnership with the Great Nintendo, and No hope of getting the Playstation (& its technology) into the hands of loyal Nintendo & Sega fans (Sound FAMILIAR? Guess Sony's always been in some type of controversy; it's seems like a prerequisite). Then, as history would later tell us, SNE's consoles & games sales went through the stratosphere, worldwide. And reluctantly, I freakin' bought one (with Toshinden, and WarHawk 1 LOL!)and never looked back. From that time and after all these years it adds up to look a little like this:
World Consoles War I / Winner - PS1
World Consoles War II / Winner - PS2
World Consoles War III / Winner - PS3?
Damn, what a ride. And I must say that these videos look quite intriguing for system launch (1st run) games. There is no denying that. Way better than Smuggler's Run..!!!
My question to you all is:
Is the third time the charm for Sony? Will it win again and if not, why not?
Wow you seem actually intelligent enough to talk to. Their is an extra bunch of trolls in here. I was into N64 1st... Then I got my PS1... rode that to PS2.... and now I’ll have both Xbox 360 and PS3...
I don't think it's a question of who will win... But who will do the worse of the 3... Any agreements?
I figure … by 2009;
By 2009, people will see how wonderful Wii isn’t and how great X360/PS3 can actually do game wise. I think Wii needed more improvements in the hardware range.
So I won't. I do believe your assessment of the Wii is spot on though. Ironically it's really kinda hard for me to kick dirt on 'ol Nintendo since they were my pacifier for so many years. But I just don't see the novelty of living room - video game aerobics lasting too many years. Hell, here in America we have to bribe kids to go outside and throw the football & baseball around, much less our parents or grandparents. So having them contort and sweat themselves into a heart attack next to the coffee table might not go over too well after a while. I'm not saying that us Americans are lazy - just more inclined to rest (when we play) since we work harder and longer than any other Nation on Earth and that's a FACT. Plus, there is a marked lack of graphical power that the Wii possesses next to its big brother rivals. I hypothesize that it will CHARGE HARD out of the gates, but eventually settles for a concilation prize.
Nintendo was my favorite for a long time running also. I agree with the fact Wii will be getting it's short large burst of success then quietly die to a dull roar.
anyone else couldnt give a toss about sales? i buy consoles on my own views and judgements overall, not by what the likes of the japanese buy, some seem to think because japan hates or loves a certain console , you as a individual should too, thats silly really. if the ps3 wins the race again I dont care, i'm having all three consoles over time and having a bloody great time with them.
What you're saying. I own a plethora of old and new systems. As an avid 30 year old gamer - I just wondered (outloud) if the Sony franchise could retain its' dominance in the sector of vidgames with the introduction of the P3, especially as it relates to this "new" generation of gamers that NEVER suffered through the turbulent early times of game development when console makers were dropping like dehydrated flies. It seems like the younger folks are hardly satisfied with anything less than being "beamed" into the game, a la Star Trek.
A few of those videos were great and a few weren't for me. Let me just start this out by saying that I'll be getting a 360 because there are more games that appeal to me on that console than sony's at the moment but that does not mean that I wouldn't want to play some of these. Motorstorm's graphics are awesome and Lair looks to be one of the best launch titles (depending how the gameplay is because there have been some crappy dragon games in teh past) but Genji didn't look "next-gen" to me or like a game that I would pay 50-60 dollars for to play. Resistance looked pretty good but it's just not enough for me to pay 600 dollars. Granted launch line-ups are never good and I honestly might be a little jealous of the PS3 owners come Devil May Cry time but at least Ninja Gaiden 2 (assuming it gets announced which it should) will make it hurt less.
Basically, There is no denying that the PS3 will be a great console with great games and those are just a few of them. In the end the only winner of the console wars is the gamers.
"maybe your Xbox360 is superior to my Xbox360?!" ROFLMAO. Best post yet.
