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.

PirateThom3726d ago

Yes, lame cause of steel case.

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

"This isn't even about the game."

Spydiggity3726d 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.

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

Chubear3726d ago

I'm kinda baffled at why they didn't put the DVD content onto the same Blu-ray disc.

OGharryjoysticks3726d ago

I'm sure R2 is very close to disc capacity with the 2 campaigns and size of the multiplayer.

SmokingMonkey3726d ago

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?!

Spydiggity3726d ago

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.

shutupandplay3726d 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.

Overr8ed3726d 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.

Muff1nB4k3r3726d ago

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!

OGharryjoysticks3726d 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.
