The Resistance 2 Limited Edition is better because the Gears 2 one has:

All in a Steel book DVD case

Those steel cases make the "limited edition" worthless, because they're so terrible.

This isn't even about the game, it's those damn steel cases, I don't think I can explain how my rage for them burns with the flame of a thousand suns!

"stop hiding your true identity"

Funny..since your using one of your many anonymous fanboy accounts.
PirateThom  +   2716d ago
Yes, lame cause of steel case.

Rather than reading what you want, maybe read it all?

"This isn't even about the game."
Spydiggity  +   2715d ago
the article doesn't directly mention that resistance is 10 dollars more than gears. i'd say that should weigh in on the decision.
butterfinger  +   2716d ago
Well, IMHO...
I think that I would have to give it to R2 for that tight action figure thing. I'll probably get both in their limited editions though:P
Chubear  +   2716d ago
I'm kinda baffled at why they didn't put the DVD content onto the same Blu-ray disc.
OGharryjoysticks  +   2715d ago
I'm sure R2 is very close to disc capacity with the 2 campaigns and size of the multiplayer.
SmokingMonkey  +   2716d ago
Once again R2 > Gaers2
what else can they pile on top of R2 to make it better than Gaer2?

Biggest advantage R2 has over Gaer2; 60 players online. If i want to i can do 5 on 5 or 30 on 30(on deicated servers!),
Gaer2 can @ MAX do 5 on 5 for $50 a year?!
Spydiggity  +   2715d ago
fine if you think that but...
that has nothing to do with the point of this round of the article. it's about the extras you get when buying the special edition.

as for number of's based on style. 30 v 30 wouldn't be fun in gears. i'm not sure it would be fun in resistance either but it might be. i'll see when i buy it.
shutupandplay  +   2715d ago
Ignorance at its finest. Gears 1 had a TACKED ON multiplayer modes. yet, somehow it managed to outscore, outsell, and out play resistance. The online has been built groud up for 5 on 5. The good news is gears 2 will...^^^ outscore, outsell and out play resistance 2.
Overr8ed  +   2715d ago
Spy is right. But i think that the LE is better for R2 because your getting more stuff (even though the game is 10$ more than gears) but if you look at it, Gears and R2 has about the same stuff minus the figure and a photo (which doesnt seem like its better then a figure) I have to admit though the other LE of Gears is way better then both, I fricking real size lancer! If Resistance had a real size Carbine or Bullseye then it would be about the same.
Muff1nB4k3r  +   2715d ago
@ Overr8ed
I'd buy both versions, but to be honest, a real-life auger would cause me to instantly pre-order and stand outside my best buy or eb games to get it. Shame the hailstorm (i think this is the name, i think I forgot though) would've been cooler, yet real life size? No, the hailstorm would be the biggest a$$ replica of a fictional gun ever to be purchased by the consumer on a wide scale.

But don't deny that would be awesome!
OGharryjoysticks  +   2715d ago
I never thought about it until you brought it up but I think a 30 versus 30 match of Gears would be way cool. The only thing I think the maps would need to be a lot bigger but if they were that would be cool.

IMO GeOW2>>>R2. Juts like that first. FVCK SONY.
Dyingduck  +   2715d ago
There's more to R2's package:
The collector’s edition also contains a bonus DVD that includes:

* Exclusive behind the scenes video, “America Forever Lost”, chronicling the making of Resistance 2
* Digital copy of Issue #0 of the Resistance comic book series published by Wildstorm.
* A preview into the upcoming Resistance novel, “Resistance: The Gathering Storm” by science fiction author William Dietz.
* “Shattered History” Resistance timeline movie– providing a story overview from the earliest days of the Chimera invasion to the beginning of Resistance 2

R2: 84%
Gears2: Do your own math

Who's winning?
gamersday08  +   2715d ago
Despite Gears has been out much much longer (1 gen before) than Resistance,
R2 still beats Gears2.

Even Gears franchise is supposed to have much much larger customer base, Resistance still beats Gears.

Gears without the violence and gore is just an Halo in disguise. Sorry Gears, you just blew your cover.
nice_cuppa  +   2716d ago
i didn't think it could get worse !
I was wrong !
How very sad ...
spectyre  +   2716d ago
You're so right...
and it's a long time til November. This will probably go on well into '09.
radio0o  +   2716d ago
resistance 2 easily
TheColbertinator  +   2715d ago
I gotta go with R2 on this one.That Chimera figure would look sweet next to my computer monitor
fopums  +   2715d ago
the both come with neato toys lol, but I'm all about Resistance's mythology or twisted history, whatever you want to call it, so thats why I'm picking up the limited edition.

and that chimera figure......will surely sit atop my dvd/game case proudly, though that Chimeran skull that went up for auction was waaaaay cooler.
AIi_The_Brit  +   2715d ago
Resistance 2 Will Win
Resistance 2 > gears 1.5


Even the cover was chosen by US :D
AIi_The_Brit  +   2715d ago
Resistance 2 Won Round 1

Resistance 2 Will Win Round 2
Aclay  +   2715d ago
The fact that the Resistance 2 Collectors Edition cover art was chosen by the fans makes it even a little more special and the Chimera figurine looks pretty cool too. Now it's time to pre-order :)
Bits-N-Kibbles  +   2715d ago
Are we debating this?


Go out and buy what you want wether it be GeoW Limited edition or not or R2 Collectors' Edition or not...

Flame on, I guess...

zo6_lover27  +   2715d ago
When are they actually going to compare the games?
Instead of this flame-war starting BS.
Silogon  +   2715d ago
I could care less about the content of each, the game is what fundamentally matters in the end. Resistance 2 will be the better game. It will be the longer game. It will have more content and it will keep more than 10 players occupied at one time. Gears is working on last gen cylinders.

I hate him,hope he leaves this site.
Silogon  +   2715d ago
You 2 do me a favor and find me a post where I ever praised Gears of War. Then, find me a post where I have done anything other than praise Resistance and Insomniac to the moon and back.

That's a split personality, huh? You BEAN D*CKS don't know the difference between unbiased, fair, evaluation and blind loyalty. That's the problem.
skulldrey  +   2715d ago
Its better to have a split personality and praise both consoles, than be a fanboy for one.
cemelc  +   2715d ago
Wow the content is kind of cool a book that tells you about the early chimeras operations is not bad at all. I Don't mind the chimera figure but i'm more interested in the plot rather than the figure.

To answer the @Chubear insomniac games told once that the alone is consuming the entire 50 or 60 gb of the blue-ray disk so i guess its not possible to ask for more.

Round 3
Which ones is a better FPS and which one is a better TPS
cemelc  +   2715d ago
If you you want the round 3 to be like that, you should compare it with a different game in the genre, so it wouldnt be R2 vs Gears2.
dwjohnson011211  +   2715d ago
the only reason r2 is winning is because it is linked to n4g much like cinemablend.

On a real site r2 doesnt have a chance. say's hello.
cemelc  +   2715d ago
In the top seller list from Amazon you have the R2 collectors edition on #23 and the gears collectors in the #25 position

On a totally unrelated note in amazon playstation3 on #12 while the xbox 360 #74, guess you should start crying now:
shutupandplay  +   2715d ago
you might as well go post this poll on Honestly people, do you really think 79% of gamers prefer resistance? It`s not going to beat gears 2 in any way.
cemelc  +   2715d ago
You should check this unknown page too, the top seller list differ from your opinion:
BigKev45  +   2715d ago
Gears 2 Nov 7th.
DFresh  +   2715d ago

Sony's Resistance 2 won again.

Round 1:
Resistance 2: 70%
Gears of War 2: 30%

Round 2:
Resistance 2: 79%
Gears of War 2: 21%

Round 3 is next.
StrikingDmc4  +   2713d ago
that site is flooded by ps3 fanboys
00  +   2715d ago
really? wow
So now were basically comparing the cases the games comes in.
skulldrey  +   2715d ago
There's more in the R2 pack than stated on this thread. Look on the link.

R2 has better things I think. The Special Edition doesn't make one game better than the other but as far as content, R2 is ahead.
dwjohnson011211  +   2715d ago
Who won best game of the show runner-up and action game of e3?
Not resistance 2 that's for sure.

Which predecessor won over 40 game of the year awards and has expectations higher then ever with the sequel? Not resistance fall of man.

This is like comparing Final Fantasy to a no-name RPG. It don't make sense and should not even be debated.

All these versus articles make no damn sense. Enjoy the hype for r2 while you can becuz once gears of war 2 releases, it really won't be up for discussion. We have a 40+ hit Heavy weight grand Champion v.s. a average feather weight. Gears 2 is going to K.O this out the park.

Do you see any big-wigs saying this bout resistance 2?

"At the end of the day, Gears of War 2 takes the team-oriented gameplay from the original game to the next level. There are more options, balance fixes, and two more players. We still regularly play Gears of War, and we're looking forward to playing Gears of War 2 for the next 2 years."

The only reason this is even up for debate is because it's sony and microsoft's marquee title's for the holiday season.

Both will be critically acclaimed titles that any self respecting gamer deserves, no matter what you fangoofs think.

also if notice
This is round 1 for this certain site, cinemablend are doing a three round bout of their own.

Some more mis educated idiots are grasping for straws.

I love my 360, but the Resistance 2 Collector's Edition kicks Gears 2 ass.

YOu Never know...
