Scans from the Play-UK magazine previewing another PS3 killer-app in the making. Lots of new screenshots boasting breathtaking backdrops and action sequences are also a part of the preview.
Game looks amazing, maybe one of the best for PS3; now we play the waiting game...
...its in the launch window of the PS3, the special treat is that its not so late to get. Alongside Resistance, MotorStorm, Lair and F1, Heavenly Sword makes yet another Killer-app so early in making !
I love a good adventure game, and this looks to be right up my alley, I just wish I knew a bit more about where the story was going.
Looks great though, the three stance combat combined with the fact that you can use enemy weapons sounds very appealing, I would imagine that there would be several different play styles based upon that alone. With that in mind, a multiplayer minigame might be pretty fun, perhaps something similar to what Square had in Xenogears.
This is the game that makes me want a PS3.
Coming from you that's saying a lot. :) Too bad I can't look at the pics at work since it's in a forum and it's blocked. I take it they're finally showing new environments?
I like the PS3.
I dislike delusional fan boys and crazy Sony CEO's who talk like pay-per-veiw wrestlers.
All I need is games ya know.
I hear you. I've been looking forward to this one for a while. Lair is also one that I'm looking forward to.
Gears of War is making me think about getting a 360. Beat it this weekend with my friend on co-op. Enjoyed the game a lot, until the ending. The game was great, but the ending was too easy and ended too fast. I'll end up getting a 360 eventually, but just probably not for a while.
I have had a 360 for a year and I need a reason to buy a PS3 now. And AAA games are the only thing that I need.
couldn't take my eyes off of Cliffbo's avatar.
Correct me if im wrong but there are no killer apps for the ps3, i hope your not trying to call RFOM a killer app lol thats a moslty forgotten game now.
This game looks ok but nothing specail hopefully they can prove me wrong we'll have to wait and see, but i dont know why sony droids are getting so excited when the ps3 has been nothing but disapointing so far.
Games like Grand Theft Auto, Gran Turismo, Metal Gear Solid and Halo 3 are killer apps. It's a worn out word along with AAA title.
PS3 will have some good games come European launch like R:FoM, Heavenly Sword, Motorstorm, UT2007, Warhawk ,Virtua Fighter 5, Assassin's Creed and others.
Looking good. I wonder if it will make the Euro launch?
my friend who works at gamestation in the UK believe that they wont have any PS3 until the end of April/May. I must admit I am starting to believe them as Sony still has not announced the actual date
Heavenly sword is looking amazing! Its getting the same graphically jump some other PS3 AAA titles are getting! They added blood and the envirnoments looks very impressive! Add ninja theory to Sonys long lists of very talented developers!
Now I'm waited and excited to see what factor 5 has done with LAIR!
I can't wait to get gracenly sword I'm going down to pre order it ASAP! Looks like we might get the demo sometime late this month or early in January
This game looks insane, and I'm glad they improved the look of Nariko's hair. The whole "enemies don't disappear after you kill them" part reminded me of Resistance, which has the same thing. It always bugged me when enemies would teleport after dying, so this adds a lot to the realism factor. And being able to destroy anything in the world is just great.
looking good can²t wait for a new demo
Im so excited for this game it looks amazing!
And ask anyone who has played RFOM from beginning to end that game is a killer app man. It comes this close to being almost as epic as HL is for me but at the end of the day HL is still king. But man RFOM is a excellent game you should really give it a go.
Hey I agree RFOM is a good game. BUT..it is not a killer app. Sorry, but a killer app sells systems...and RFOM does not sell the PS3. The only reason it has a high attach rate is because it is the best game out of all the launch titles for the PS3, and IF you are buying a PS3 then you should buy RFOM not the other way around. You don't hear anyone saying "I need to play RFOM, so I am going to buy a PS3".
Again, its a good game...but its not a "killer app".
Heavenly Sword could become one..we will have to wait and see. So far the hype around this game leads me to believe its going to be a good game but not a killer app. If it was...Sony would know by now...and they would be behind it full force just like MS was with GOW.
It's Heavenly Sword time. =]
Sony will be behind it with full force when they decide to... why do you think they signed up the studio as exclusive in the first place...
This game is off the hook looking. Seems like it could be a good game.
Have you paltrd RFOM from start to finish?
Do you own a PS3?
How can you say what a game is/isnt if you haven't even played the game extensivly?
Its seems like some people just won't give Isomanic its due credit for making an awesome game!
If you don't have the first person experience with RFOM what good is your opinion of it? I bet there 30+ members on this site that would project the same exact opinions you have and yet not one of them have even best the first 3 levels!
My point is play it first, then express your opinions about it! Not the other way around.
I can't wait to play Motorstorm, Heavenly Sword and Lair!! Bring it on!!
RFOM isn't a console pushing AAA/killer app, if you got the PS3 chances are it's the only title worth while.
After all 150,000 of them spent thousand plus on their system, let them get excited about a goos game. I'd be pissed too if I spent that much money and discovered the inferiority of my system. Besides, they have so few exclusives this time around. I truely think in a few years the Sony lovers will see the light, all 1 million of them.
big boss said.....to me killerapp is not the game which sells units,perhaps it is but 4 the 1st time its not when u look @ HALO when i first saw i was not saying that i am going to buy XBOX 4 that but when my friends told me i was very exited and had CD on PC.....that is the case of RESISTANCE:FOM....when "somebody" will play it and that "somebody" will tell "somebody" that this game is awesome and its only on PS3 then that "somebody" will buy PS3.
true killerapp will be Resistance:FOM 2 if it happens,for now Resistance is semi-killerapp
after that solid snake killed BIG BOSS
oh yeah messages should be relevant to topic this game looks very good and action seems intense perhaps "GODESS OF WAR" lolz
to go from this:
then to the screenshots above (AND IT'S STILL BEING MADE AS WE SPEAK)make's this to be a new killer app ip title.
anyone who has not played resistance doesn't know the hectic nature and killer fun to be had from the game.some of you probally don't have a ps3.if you can call call of duty 2 a killer app or ghost recon for 360,then you can call resitance a killer app too FOR PS3.STOP BEING FANBOYS.NINJA THEORY really seems to be bringing this title together.i do ike that they are keeping the game in the dark.magazines and websites ruin the fun of finding these things out for yourself.great looking title.
wow, awesome game! i want a ps3 so badly, i would pay 1000 bucks! ok 2000!
This game looks good. I would say about equal to Ninja Gaiden on the XBOX. Let's hope it plays as well.
that your that conceited. but hey its your opinion and you've got a right to it
that you're that conceited. but hey its your opinion and you've got a right to it
Just like what would you know what a killer app is CG nothing thats for sure and Halo 3 yeah right please that game is as lamer as ever and Gears of War I have that game and it wasn't even close to being a killer app that game was an exaggeration
a Killer app wouldn't even sell a system if it was that good and plus people would just buy the system if there was just the games that is out right now or the ones that didn't get that much of a high rating and anybody that believes that a killer app games sells consoles is a total moron I'mean come on
who would believe that kind of crap it doesn't mean its a killer app it won't make people buy the console because its a triple A plus title please that would be stupid if they just bought the system because they just see other kids getting it cause its just that good of a game yeah right.
is the sole reason i bought a ps3, and ive been disappointed with the delays. It better be AAA-mazing
