Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president David Reeves said Tuesday that the PS3 is "definitely where the action is" for FPS gamers. He then announced that Killzone 2 won't be out until 2009.
there is resistance 2, MGS4, haze, and killzone 2 so I think they have a reason to say the PS3 is the new home of FPS. I mean the xbox360 only has halo and gears and throw in another that I may not know of. Not saying which is better though just saying that their claim is'nt absurd.
4 ur information MGS4 is not labeled as a FPS title, even when you can play from first person perspective
PS3 is the Home to nothing at the moment. It is Homeless in fact. So they, and their fanboys, should really stop making wild proclamations until there are some concrete indications that the proclamations are true. Take a cue from Microsoft and Nintendo - they only make proclamations after the event.
for ages they've been saying that the 360 has nothing but fps's, and that the playstation has everything. now it's not worked out like that, the 360 has all the genres covered, and ps3's genre catalogue is looking like that of the first xbox. sony says that playstation is the new home of fps, all the fanboys forget the digs they made against the 360's game variety the past few years, and begin rejoicing lol incredible! pretty soon, i can see the sony fanboys claiming that having the variety of the 360s library is not good, and trying to claim that the slim pickings on the ps3 is the way to go. i thought that was another reason why the 360 wasn't gonna do well because not everyone likes fps's??? so what is it people, is the 360 the home to fps and not much more....or is it the ps3? coz even sony have said that the ps3 is now the fps console!
When the home finally comes out, most of the kids would have grown up and grown ups will be in retirement homes. I swear these ps3 lovers change their tones like chameleons. Whatever suits them to make ps3 better they shamelessly start singing that tune. They see nothing wrong with delays and over promised and under delivered stuff by sony. GOD help them come to their senses. Peace out.
sux that killzone got delayed, but atleast resistance 2 is still here and besidede we have lots of fun games while we wait. just take your time gurilla no rush, resistance 2 should do the same thing to i think 1 year of devolopment is way to fast
after seeing those gameplay graphics im glad it was delayed, how can that new footage look so bad and the footage from E307 looked much better. im glad RFOM2 is coming out soon.
So now we know that Heartless is on drugs we can just get that out of the way, ya drugaddict.
its better that they're starting 09 off with a bang in KZ2 because there is just no room for it in 08. you all know the list.
lol... i Would hAve thought thIs game would see a release in laTe 2008. But, i guEss its ok. You can say its fOr the better. hopefully it doesN't Disappoint. hehe...
lol Nasim alert
lol...way over your head. Look harder.
Everyone excited about FPS now. Lol. This entire generation is so weird. Sony fanboys bashed the 360 for having only shooters and FPS...guess what. two years into the ps3' life cycle and it's a shooter's haven. There is nothing wrong with that as I love all games but anyone noticed how no one talks about that any more?
@ Kevon...its called being a hypocrite. It doesnt matter though...everyones gonna be happy in the next year :) @ Scerick thank you...i worked hard for it...lol. But, shhhh.
lol kevon can't say it looks good because it jeopardizes his fanboy agenda. He can't say it looks bad because he will be alone. So he spins off in another direction. Good form kevon good form:D Just got the wait beyond thing by the way lol. nice touch
Breakfast, I see what you did there..
OMFG THAT WAS SICK Breakfast you need 11 bubbles right [email protected]!
I found it... WAIT BEYOND. YA but i rather have a better game and wait for it than a half-a## game. Plus there are too many good games coming out this year so i liked that it was delayed.
Hey I got a question, are toughName and Breakfest honestly gay with each other? Every thing leads to "yes, no doubt about it" on my magic 8 ball.
HAHAHAHAHAHA toughName and Breakfast Killzowned
..now that's just immature Now take my hand Breakfast or we'll be late for cheerleading practice
maybe it because ps3 has more variety with first parties, 360 has its FPS', Gears, Forza and... Viva Piñata.
there was a lot of bashing by PS3 fanboys regarding the disproportionate numbers of FPS offerings on that system compared to any other. I must say though in fanboy's defense that was mainly because you and others of your cloth were clamoring that the PS3 had no good games (if any at all) and you clowned HS, R:FOM, and Motorstorm all as some of the worst games ever made while simultaneously touting Halo 3, Mass Effect, and Bioshock as the "be all; end all's" of games as we know it. Remember that? I'm glad the the PS3 is finally getting all the respect it has always deserved. It's made my loss of bubbles and nearly 4,000 comments on N4G over the years seem so worth the time. From the months before launch, to the big camp out leading up until 11|17|06, to the complete reversal of the mainstream media calling this wonderful system, "the bastard child, & technological abortion of our time." Now, the PS3 not only has all of those other games that didn't "appeal" to the FPS lovers of the 360 at the time, but has also moved into first place in the FPS department as well. So yes, kevoncox there was a lot of finger pointing back in the day in those nascent years of the black beast, but I'm glad to say now -- that the finger pointing toward the PS3 -- is for all of the right reasons. =)
Madden - I'm glad you're honest. I can admit that I prefer the 360 to the Ps3 at this point because I haven't had a reason to upgrade yet. I sold my ps3 and have been wavering between a new 360 or the ps3. When MGS4 and other games come out I should /could bite the bullet.
glad to hear it. I think MGS4 would be an exellent "excuse" to pick one up. 8D
"they always deliver on time" as if taking a lil shot at the killzone2 guys. well since KZ2 was announced Insomiac releases Resistance1, R%C tools of destruction and now resistacne2 I guess he has a point
but I'll tell ya what, to me, it looks like it has paid off, i mean i CANT WAIT for R2 but the graphics and details (building falling) are much more in depth than R2.
The only exclusive FPS's the PS3 has coming out this year is Resistance 2. MGS4 isn't a FPS, Haze sucks (the demo on the EU PSN is HORRIBLE), and KillZone 2 was delayed until 2009. Btw, I own a PS3, and not a 360 or Wii.
please to explain what made the Demo so Horrible...im kinda curious..? btw atleast rent Haze when it's out and dont just judge the game based solely off ur experience with the demo... either way...im sure no where in the article was it stated that 2008 was the year of FPS on PS3..it says PS3 new home of FPS..we dont know what Sony has planned for next year ..
Is the Haze demo region locked?? Im in the US
There's nothing "wrong" with the Haze demo. It's a decent shooter... but that's it, it's decent, run of the mill and downright generic. There's no major flaws (looks alright, solid framerate no matter how much action is on screen, controls are tight, virtually no lag in the co-op), but there's also no amazing new features (and I wouldn't include Nectar in that, it's just a powerup). Haze is very close to Halo 3 in terms of gameplay and style, and that's its problem. It's just a Halo clone with a gimmicky power up. Had this been released when it was first due, it probably would have scored quite well, but now? The best it can hope for 7s across the board.
you need to create a European account, hey I just did and was playing 4-player co-op now I need a japanese account. Below...EU and AU I'm no sure, I'm in NA.
I'm using an Aussie account. I've checked several times since last night for Haze demo and Motorstorm2 new trailer but still not there! AU and EU are suppose to be the same right??
i thought the Demo for Haze was just above ok. It might turn out to be good . I'll buy it just to check out the complete multiplayer @Badz149 its on EU.
im a ps3 owner and i just recently got into the whole fps with cod4 ut3 rfom and im looking forward to buying a lot more fps games i didn't think it would be so much fun shooting people. but now i see myself less interested with rpg playing these short fps games don't have the time for super long rpg games these days.
Well, while you're waiting for PS3 FPS games, I would recommend a 360 and it's nice collection of FPS games. Sure, I don't currently own a PS3, but I did own one. Resistance is a great game, however nothing major until next year. If you were to buy a 360, you'd have FPS games. All the sony fangirls say the 360 "is the FPS console". It amuses me that all the sony girls diss the 360 for it's FPS games but then when a FPS game comes out for PS3 it's "Teh Awesome" LOL. Go get some c0ck you sony pus$ies. Sorry i'm in my "angry drunk" phase. Tomorrow i'm going to AA, i promise. I need to quit drinking. I'm not angry, just "confrontational" BTW, I'll own a PS3 again by the end of July ;)
take your time with killzone2, what i have seen today i can only imagine how the final product will look like consdring u still have like 10 months to work on the game......i just hope u delvier some big boss fights just like crysis, and u get to be in thoes flying things and be shooting just like in the trailers.....still the best fps that is work in progess i have seen so far. cod5 will need something really special to compete with this if it is coming out next year as well.
be delayed if it had no release date???
where have you been all day? When a game's ETA (LBP, Killzone) is pushed back from its original date it is considered a delay. Hence delaystation etc.
so i dont consider it a delay more like an other estimate relax bub
With your high position at GG its really good to hear that? You asked, I answered.
Actually at E3 2007 and at leipzig, GG developer or manager who ever he was said that the game will release in 2008, and a multiplayer beta will happen in the near future. So it is kinda delayed, but again this game didn't had a placed in the already stuffed fall of 2008. Feb. 2009 is the sweet spot;)
I like haze demo just you nead play 3 times :D
Screw FPS, I can't wait to get my hands on LBP.
Me too. And then I want to make a FPS level on LBP. ;)
im tired of just blasting people in the beak
Uh oh HOTDOG! FANBOYS ARE COMING! *hides in box.*
im kinda glad they pushed killzone 2 into 09 cuz now all the games are more spread out and after 08 we dont have to wonder if sony has any other good games to come out cuz we kno for a fact they do. Sont pretty much planned out 08 and 09 already
If they had released killzone 2 in sept. it would have eaten there socom market share or the other way around and if they had released it after sept. same thing would have happened with resistance 2. Now when there is alot more breathing space in nov. and people have played the hell out of r2 and socom, they will release killzone2 and I will be one happy gamer.
Come to think of it, the only exclusive FPS xbox360 had was Halo3 and thats about it, the rest fps are all multiplatform, while PS3 has resistance and killzone as a franchise both of them are no where near there end and both of them look stunning so far. Sony has a lot of potential to take over the hardcore fps fans.
that has not been Sony's strategy(feeding the Hardcore).. Remember the 360 used to be just a shooters Box now with plenty RPGs and other games they are adding to the repertoire. I just can't see Sony becoming a Hardcores FPS box, especially not with hat PSN network in it's state. The PS has always been a little bit of everything. I'll put my money on it, FPS/Shooters will always sell well on the 360 platform because of one thing XBL. Even mediocre shooters do OK. On the PS3 only Top big budget games do alright. Looking at the history of Shooters, Xbox have had smaller user-base and their top FPS/Shooter sell way more then anything that has been on the PS. Look at UT3> and I wonder if Haze will do Ok as well. We'll see. How many Exclusive Shooters have been GOTY or won awards on the PS brand? You have to look at what Sony is and has been, not what you want them to become, especially fanboys of shooters all the sudden.
PSN is very competent for online play, why do people keep saying differently?
Man without the extra functions of in game-XMB it sucks for me. As well as some devs having to loan servers from others or maintain there own, it's just not quite there yet, as what XBL did with Halo. I don't mind paying for the ease/support and the less worries devs have to put up with XBL. I still don't like the "1st-party gets full support while 3rd are assed out" architecture of the PS3, since not many 3rd-parties can maintain a great network or are created equal.
well, atleast this gives them more time to perfect the game
For the last damn time, Killzone 2 was not delayed. Seb even said "sorry folks, as before, please take any release dates, or months with a grain of salt ... If we haven't announced it, it is not gospel.".
and he even said it was an EST geez come on N4G
i been reading that allot now from sony fans.. " it's ok it got delayed there are allot of other games to play" or " i don't need the gta4 dlc even though it might be the game of the year, i'll be on other games by the time the dlc comes out.. you guy's are just too funny. so who will be next for the 09 list? i say lbp will be next.. wait beyond, lmfao.. i like that.. it's funny how sony fans use the rrod as an excuse that they wont be able to play for like 2 to 3 weeks if they had to go through that, but yet they can keep waiting beyond to get a triple A game.. lmfao
Sorry, but I just had to ask. So what will you be waiting on after Gears2?
what will ps3 owners be waiting for after resistance 2 and kz 2? what top shooter were ps2 gamers playing before these games? u act like that will be the last shooter of the 360...do u know what other games might come about in the futrue?
i'm sorry but the best FPS controller is the 360 controller so the 360 have best controller for FPS but this doesn't mean that the 360 have the best FPS games
well sony still has ffxiii god of war uncharted series now. but then again hope ps3 does not become to western..
when it wasn't given a concrete release date before now. Is this Sh*t meant to hate on Killzone 2 or what?
Whatcha laughin' at ped-o-phile?
i wouldnt know the 09 line up isnt out for the 360 yet. but i am waiting for ng2, fable 2, banjo, gears2, too human, gta4 dlc, and some arcade games. 08's line up might not be as strong as ps3 but it's not as slopy as ps3's 07 line up.. nbt... so what the ps3 got thats better than halo and gears?
if you dont like shooters they got alot.
Socom is better then gears...god of war is better then halo....SOTC is better than halo...resistance is better than gears....MGS is better than halo and gears..Haze...warhawk ..uncharted..JAK..Heavenly sword...ratchet and Clank .can someone else keep this list going so people stop thinking halo is the best game ever along with gears who's story suks co bad
god of war is a kids slasher compared to NG2. Halo broke all records and have the numbers to back it up.. resisteance, still mediocre shooter and gaurenteed will be sh4tted upon this holiday. haze, the way its looking will get a 360 release, uncharted, did poor for a great looking game, and no honors, bioshock will see that game any day, with honors. heavenly sword, don't make me laugh..Ok R&C was fun but oh you forgot lair by the way. put up just 2 360 games u bash, and at least 2 games, will be close to the total sales of all the games u mentioned with GOTY and awards. Fact
Sucked balls to me. Also GTA 4 broke records dose not mean is a great game...Haze will be great and the mass amount of other playstation exclusives .....I laugh at this "mediocre shooter" looks like halo to me....Most Fps is all about the community and Halo has a large one dosen't mean its great just has a community around it ..
