In less than 24 hours, Resistance 2 Collector's Edition has become the biggest videogame sales mover at Amazon.com despite its hefty $80 price tag.
Hahahahaha,gears of who?
Laugh now, cry later =)
I hope you are refering to yourself. Or do I need to remind you that Resistance will 8 player online co-op! 60 player online battles! 2 seperate campaigns! HUGE BOSS battles! A killer story along with gamplay that is actually fun! That's something that your precious gears 1.5 could never pull off, let alone any 360 game!
Laugh now (playing xbox360), cry later (seeing red) =)
Well here you can laugh now at this http://i29.tinypic.com/2gx2... And then you can cry later once you have actually played Gears 2 (Basically an expansion pack for the first game)
Guys, leave Jenzo alone! I'M RUNNING OUT OF TISSUES HERE! >.< I say we donate a PS3 to him so he can see the power of brand loyalty and quality! :D
Do I have to remind you that no exclusive PS3 game has ever won any important GOTY awards or sold over 4 million copies? It's funny how all you can do is try to insult me by namecalling.
And Jenzo...if you're referring to Halo...then that is the most overhyped crap I have ever seen in my entire life. I would rather have quality than to worry about which game won awards and so forth. I'm sure that soon from now, a couple of PS3 games will win GOTY.
Do YOU need to be reminded that 2007 was basically the first year for PS3 to compete for a GOTY against MS's 2nd year titles? Do you also need to be reminded that 2008 hasn't been decided yet? Do you also need to be reminded that MS has proven that they buy anything they can't create, invent, or get on their own (including reviews)? Move on, your act is really tired.
MGS4 to be GOTY. Either that or LBP. Everyone allready understood that GTA4 was overhyped, and if the media isn't biased as they always are, they too will understand that games like Gears of Whores are more of an expansion pack than a game.
Of course , they will be more satisfied after watching behind the scene footage IN HD
It's all 'will do this' 'will do that' with you guys. Just you wait - proud sponsor of the PS3 fanboys since 2006.
you are a Hardcore 360 fan, I saw you comments, you always defend 360 titles with intelligent comments, or say their problems even they are 360 exclusives... but this :"Do I have to remind you that no exclusive PS3 game has ever won any important GOTY awards or sold over 4 million copies?" its a stupid comment in every aspect, why? because : 1-in November 2006 PS3 released, which console in history have GOTY title in just few months? 2- in 2007 COD4 won GOTY almost everywhere, even in 360 titles(IGN for example) , and BIOSHOCK isnt 360 exclusive , it was on PC in the same time.. and PS3 user will have it with extra features very soon. and about HALO3, needless to say its a LAST gen game with new features for HALO fans who already playing COD4.. 3- selling 4 million units? SONY have many titles that are so much bigger than HALO in term of quality and production value, but they havent released them yet, and MGS4 the first MEGA-HIT ps3 exclusive sold very well(over 3 million).. but you think Gears of war can sell like this without MICROSOFT advertising? I saw Gears of war sale numbers even in ANANDTECH.com(a PC HARDWARE site), on TVs, on every NEWS site... it was funny because only HALO and Gears had this kind of HUGE advertising support in history of gaming.. so dont say BS when you are angry..wait and see sale numbers this Xmas.. cant wait :)
What will your excuse be this year then? "The PS3 has only been out for 2 years. It's not fair...."?
I've already got my copy pre-ordered and every PS3 owner should do the same. Support Insomniac, guys. They bring us one new AAA exclusive every year.
Insomniac are one of the most consistent devs out there. Releasing AAA titles every year! Resistance is gonnA AmAzing!
"despite its hefty $80 price tag. " thats the normall price of ps3 games here in the uk, if not less
Yeh i wonder if uk will get it for this price ??? I doubt it. It will most likely be £60, or we might not get it all. But yeh i wont be buying it. Its too expensive.
it will probably be 60 because the normal edition is going to be 40 or 50 depending what shop you go to. (sorry the pound sign doesn't work) Or we might not get it at all.
I have the first one, and I'm about 90% sure I'm gonna pick it up but I'm done with preordering games.
80$ for what Sony and IG is giving for this game isnt Hefty.
I love Insomniac and every game they produce, but I'm not preordering a game from Amazon again. I preordered Crisis Core for the PSP where it was supposed to come with the Shinra UMD case and when my copy of the game showed up, no Shinra case. AND I had to wait like an extra week to play the game while they shipped it to me. No thanks, I'd rather just go buy whatever edition of whatever game from the store. I don't trust Amazon to keep to their preorder bonuses anymore. At least not where I want to play a game really bad and I have to wait while someone ships it to me while I watch people online playing it. I'd rather go and get it myself.
one for me and the other 2 for christmas presents yay
will make this roar sound like a fart
Why is Amazon rated so highly for sales figures, i mean Halo 3 has never left the top 75 on the overall charts since it was released.....a year ago, its even ahead of R2 as well but does that really mean its still selling like crazy?
I agree. But it seems to be the only real-time source people refer to when talking about sales. Gives you an idea of what's "hot" or not. But I think the point your making is like if there's only 10 copies of "This Game" then they sell 5 of those, it's an amazing 50% increase! Then we'll see on N4G "This game had a 50% increase on amazon!!! Amazing!"
omega why are you still allowed in the gamer zone? there's nothing too wrong with this post in particular but 99% of your other posts are crap.
Resistance 2 dont need no Stupid Pop Gun Replica to help it Sell !!! The Quality of the Game Sells First http://www.xbox360rally.com...
Good for In
thanks Ric, always makes us laugh, bubbs up. The incredible talent of Insomniac will show very clearly what epic storytelling and gaming is truely all about, Thanks Ted and company
RESISTANCE 2 WILL SHAKE THE EARTH! And next year Killzone 2 will SHATTER it! The CombiNATION of These 2 Games will tear apart gears 1.5 and....uh...well, that's all the 360 has. XD JUMP OUT, PLAY B3YOND and JOIN THE PLAYSTATION NATION!
And that behemoth of a game "M.A.G" will ensure that PSN is at the forefront of multiplayer gaming.
Why are all you guys so excited the Gear 2 $139.99 limited edition debuted at No. 1 for a week and is still in the top 25. R2 debuted at 76 at a cheaper price and its going to be release before Gears. I guess if a PS3 game had the No. 1 spot everyones heads who likely exploded
r2s collectors edition was just announced yesterday give it time but as usually u xbots like everything rushed
Actually the only person getting excited is you. Just look at how upset you are getting just because R2 is already selling despite only being announced yesterday.
So this is pretty big.
When the $139.99 edition of Gears debuted on its FIRST DAY it still hit no.1 while R2 cant even get to the top 25, and where the hell is the standard edtion of the game?????? in an unclassified position!!! Oh and as we speak its rank is getting LOWER and LOWER!!!!!!
The same thing is happening with your IQ
Well wat do u expect wen im talkin to idioits such as urself i hav 2 dump myself down.....c i cnt evn rite wit full words thx 2 u
...So what? The PS3 is in the top seller's list and there's no 360 in sight. Oh 360...where aaaaaaaaaaaaaare youuuuuu?
Curiousity pushed me back here to see what the general attitude is but let me ask you PS3 owners something, why is it that it makes you feel better, to insult and heavily criticise an Xbox 360 game that isn't out yet, like Gears 2 per example. Are you so insensitive that you can't let the other crowd enjoy there things without being so childish about it? when you can just sit back and enjoy R2 or whatever? Call me a 360 fanboy I don't honestly care, all I game on is my PC and that's when I have time for it, and In my "Opinion" it's the best platform regardless.
Look in any 360 article.Or any PS3 article as a matter of fact,and you'll ALWAYS find some troll 360 fanboy who just cant keep his fanboy words to himself.it's been like this since this site started And now that PS3 fanboys do it to them,all of a sudden its not okay? its annoying? get over it.
Why man? you don't have to acknowledge his comment you can just block him, or stay away from the comments altogether. I love how some people think disagreeing will somehow hurt me, as if I care about numbers.
You block them, and they make additional accounts to harass you. 360 fanboys are running out of reasons to justify their system so instead of contributing to the articles, they resort to insulting. I'm sorry, but it sure took the moderators long enough to ban accounts using my username as a mechanism to flame me. I'm sorry, but it took the moderators long enough to delete comments of which talks about my private parts and my physical attributes. If 360 owners want to defend their console to the very death, fine but don't insult someone just because they can't come up with a legitimate argument.
"they resort to insulting" if you believe im a 360 fanboy fair enough but to say that I'M the one insulting people when LarVanaian said to me "The same thing is happening with your IQ " If thats how you see things you seriouly should just shutup all together
Omega, how about you shutup for a change? If you know that you haven't done anything wrong, then why do you feel the need to defend yourself?
Look at the Bots Reporting this Ha Ha Loosers Ha Ha
I skipped out.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA microshit and Xbots learn from your master, bahahahahahaaha I guess now bots are very scared,everything have been Flopping Bhahahahahah
so i caused this to happen kind of
But I'd most definately pre order this one if they announced a pal collecter's edition. Does anyone know if they have announced how many players splitscreen coop can handle, or if it allows you to play splitscreen coop online?
I'm going to reserve the regular copy. I try not to buy games that exceed the cost of my text books :D Though the collector's edition sound cool. The last 'collecters edition' I bought was Halo 2 and I traded that thing in 2 days after I bought and beat it.
*breakdances* I am *so* preordering this before they vanish! o.o Hot DAMN Sony!
does it still have a main game slipt screen coop or even slipt screen still
can i preorder it at best buy or circuit city? i hope gamestop arent the only retailer store to get it, i have had such a bad experiences with them that i decided not to go there anymore
You can also pre-order at Target, maybe more.
you can pre-order anywhere but soon IG is going to announce that a specific retailer is going to give out Public Beta codes for R2 when you pre-order so i would hold the pre-order ticket for awhile longer
$80 is alot?! here in Denmark we usually pay around $100 for a NORMAL non collectors/non limited edition!
The first RFOM was an epic experience...great game...
I disagreed because there is no such thing as RFOM2, just R2.
support Insomniac i got my reserve on this. cant wait for the next RC (2009). RS2 + KZ2 + God of War3 + LBP bundles = rip xbox oh wait....TEAM ICOS 2 games!!!!
Just as long as the Xbox has Gears of War 2, Halo, or Fable. It's not going anywhere for awhile longer. Expect the next xbox to have a even "next-gen" Gears of War using the unreal engine 4. The xbox brand is here to stay.
uh i hope not >_>
MS is a rip off i play cod4 all day free i go on the internet on m ps3 if i need too sony is just way better most of ps3 haters simply cant afford it so they bash smart gamers like me dude Gears of war 2 isnt coming on pC MS is PC hmmmm...... i really think in reality cliffy b wants to put gears of war 3 on ps3
"The xbox brand is here to stay." Just like Sega, amirite? Don't be so sure of brands staying, the XBox brand has yet to prove a viable source of income.
Although i don't think i will get the collectors edition
If I had a ps3, this would be my most anticipated game of the year.
I am so getting that Chimera figure, this Collectors edition better'd come over in the UK. Also if Sony and Insomniac are listening, Ratchet special edition next please! I so want a figure of Ratchet and Clank on the desktop.
lets hope it lives up unlike some other overrated fps's released last year.
