This November 7th 3 of the most eagerly anticipated titles will be released, including Gears of War 2 from Epic, Resistance 2 from Insomniac games and Tom Clancy's Endwar from Ubisoft.
I can't wait to ignore all the news for Gears of War. Unless it...really, has improved!
x360 has a decent game in Fall but it is up against much bigger and mcuh badder --RESISTANCE 2 PS3's FALL lineup is just incredible with WKS the lineup is THE BEST FOR a long time to come
Resistance really will be "badder" than Gears i know you mean "badass," but i'm twisting your words...ok?
Resistance 2 is coming out November 4th, not Nov. 7th... anyways and I almost can't believe that it's less than 2 months away. There's so many good games coming out this Fall, I almost don't know which games to buy first. The article mentions Tom Clancy's End War, but that game is no where on my radar, but I guess RTS fans will love it.
He means Europe. November 7th falls on a Friday and thats the most probable release date for the game in Europe. Anyways, as good as Endwar is hopefully gonna be, it's only really gonna be about two games. Gears of War 2 vs Resistance 2
Talk about riding on coattails with Endwar!
If LBP is as good as everyone says it is, i'll be surprised if I even notice that R2 and Gears of war 2 has been released. LBP is the game that me, my gf and all of my friends are looking forward to the most this year =) Unlimited replayability ftw!
its not a shooter its a RTS using the mic to order your troops around the battlefield and the online is a persistent world war 3 between rusia, US , and the European Union it actually looks pretty good but with all the other games i dont think i will be able to afford it
Yep, both original games were truly absolutely awesome. But somehow, none of the sequel are day one buy for me... I will wait for Gears 2 simply because it's pretty much the same unreal engine again. So it will likely be like any other unreal games (the feeling, not the look), though, they know how to push it hard, so who knows. Not a day one for me for sure, will wait for my friends to tell me more about it. I will wait for Resistance 2 because I simply think they are pushing too hard. Too many players online is a wait and see. Mega monsters look cool, but who knows. So overall, both games should be truly awesome, but not sure enough they are sure bet. Or maybe it's the fact that I have quite a few day one buy already (2, possibly 3) in about the same time frame, so I have to be careful with the wallet. For sure, I'll avoid going to any stores during that day, just in case I cannot hold my wallet in my pocket anymore.
R 2 for the win Gears is a rip people who buy that are just plain foolish we all know that the who game is the same just a new story and some dlc
Oh and a extra player online i think PFFF I will be hooked on lbp as well foolish epic are not bringing Gears of war out in october I think LBP will smash some record sales
Are you seriously trying to say Gears 2 won't sell good? HAHAHAH. You're obviously in denial. LBP will sell a lot, and it's obvious why. It appeals to everyone. I'll be picking it up day one, in fact. But that has no impact on Gears 2 sales. Find a different game to bash, because deep down, you know Gears is a very strong exclusive for Microsoft.
R2 for the win
I'll be getting R2 fo sho. PS: Don't tell Billy Boy.
ALL THE WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
Sorry about that guys, I forgot to put that the dates were aimed at Europe. The sales for that month will definitely be interesting. RE2 vs GOW2 I'd say that GOW2 will sell more, mainly because of the fan base, but it'll be close to see which one is better.
Gears of War 2 and Resistance 2 on the same day ? Great thinking going on their then. / Sarcasm That sucks for people with both consoles, i want to play both but under no circumstances will i get them at the same time. I'll probanly get Resistance 2 first because right now i'm preferring my PS3. I was hoping that Resistance would be end of November, this would be about the first time that i'm not happy about a game making it's release date.
How exactly does two aaa franchise games releasing on the same day suck for people who own both consoles? I'll be getting both day one and will spend the next couple weeks switching back and forth between them. Its releases like this that made me decide to buy both consoles in the first place.
I dear sir love you. OK Computer is one of the best albums of all time behind Kid A by Radiohead, the best band in the world. I salute you, sir! ^_^
Because not everyone can afford them? Or maybe they can afford them but they don't want to spend more than x amount of $ per month on video games or whatever...
I wasn't aware you couldn't buy one of them later ... what are they limited time only releases or something?
@ 4.2 I'd put ok computer above kid a. Kid a is an amazing album and a worthy second best imo, but we'll agree to disagree on that one. And yea, they are the best band in the world without question
Lets put GW2 against LBP and tally up the sales after one full year. Not initial sells mind you...but after they have been on the market for a full year. Those are the two killer apps in my opinion and I'm sure LBP will sell double that of Gears. Mark my words N4G.
LBP sales will double geow2? What are you smoking and where can I find some : )
Well I hope they both sell well but really doubt LBP will even sell more then 3 million tops while Geow2 should hit around 9 million.
I will probably get both on the same day. But which one will I play first. I might as well toss a coin to see which game to play first:P
I'll pick up R2 first,then Gears 2 this holiday season.Should be a great one
It'll be interesting to see if either of these games will be good enough to have people stop the flame wars for a while. :)
There will still be the old "My games better than yours crap"
i wouldn't agree that the tom clancy game has the same hype/anticipation as gears2 or resistance2. mentioning LBP with these games (as far as hype/anticipation) would have made more sense. but yea, gears2 and resistance2 anticipation is off the charts. but i don't think we have seen anything yet. wait until KZ2 and GOW3 get close to release.
is this the UK release date or US?
Gears 2 has far more hype and brand in the gaming industry that puny 'resistance' that got done for blowing up churches...
both will be great games that sell well, do you feel manly now you got that commentt off your chest? POINTLESS
it`s: 4. Gears of War 2 | Xbox 360 17530° 5. Resistance 2 | PS3 14030° I wouldn`t call this HUGE difference. Halo 3 had a HUGE hype. Probably GeoW2 will be bigger in terms of sales in NA, but WW.. WW they have good chance to be on PAIR.
60 online vs 10 and 8 co op vs 2/5 horde mode VIVA LA RESISTANCE
I am really excited to see the sales figures. I wonder how much more gears 2 will sell?
no need to even be excited Motorstorm 2 will also outsell Gears 2 in europe Dont be surprised if M2/R2 creates new sales records in europe The first ones outsold all x360 in Europe MGS4/GTA4 PS3 also outsold all x360 games in europe
in what the review scores will be, hopefully MS wont pay for review scores or randomly send hundreds of $ worth of 360 stuff like a week b4 the review (again) lol *cough* HALO 3 *cough*
What do you mean they won't pay? Why won't they? Plus the media will be giving gears perfect scores anyways, just because of the massive title it is. But that doesn't mean it will not be good, Infact I can see with all the improvements it will be a great game.
Lol Endwar is going to flop with RFOM2 and GOW2 releaseing.
hey guys check out http://ps3.ign.com/dor/obje... r2 ftw just check out one of their weapons "the splicer". i saw a clip of it @ ign.com. man it was soo cool it cut limbs, heads and even drills on the chimera bodies. r2 has it all... EPIC and BLOODY! what more can you ask for...
GoW over R2 for this year. I liked R1 but it wasn't a mind blowing fps in anyway. Gears just has a much more brutal viceral feel then R2. I think GoW will be the bigger seller by a pretty big margin.
same same GoW 2 day 1 and.....ah good chance ill get R2 on day one too...... but if I had to choose GoW 2 *****edit Its cool to disagree with me but thats my personal opinion not yours...so doesnt really make sense
of the three games, Endwar is the one that's going to be left on the back burner. I have nothing against Endwar. But to come out with BOTH Resistance 2 and Gears of War 2 is...well... Anyway, if they have the balls to do that, they must think they have something special going with Endwar
are these the UK dates or US dates?
Viva La Resistance!!!
Resistance 2 all the way. Gears won't even be played by me, let alone bought by me. I couldn't stand the 1st one. It's cluncky controls and stiff movemens made for a rather bland experience; this one will be no different I'm sure. Bring on Resistance 2!!!!
alright! more generic games for you noobs to scoop up. enjoy! idiots. these games are pathetic.
Sorry professor videogamer, please educate us concerning what to like. Tell me, what is fun to ME?!?!
and Call of Duty World at War is coming right in between gears and resistance
Well this should be a week were no body is on N4G but something tells me that a majority of people will be here because they don't even own a next gen console. Still though this will be the week that puts the movie industry to shame. Gears2 9 million Rfom2 6 million.
i have a crazy feeling LBP will out sell both these games and if R2 sales are slow cause Lbp will be the blame people will be sooo hooked on that game lol or is it just me
awesome. can't wait for the top two hitters that day! Gears 2 and EndWar!!!!!!!!!!
Clash of the F*ckin Titans!!!
I'll eventually get both games, but it's definately GeoW 2 for me first and foremost.
for sure. Can't wait, but I think Nov. 7th is the European release date. I thought the U.S. was getting it on the 4th. Guys, correct me if I'm wrong here. Edit: BTW since when do games release on a Friday?
R2 is on the 4th in the US. Not sure about the other regions.
The dates shown in the article are the EU dates, I'm sorry for not pointing that out at the start. :) The NA dates are the 4th.
Gears 2 4 me. Is gonna be a great game.
3 great games for the PS3 and 360 and no Mario in sight
Gears 2 FTW..pre orders alone for this game will be bigger than R2 numbers.. R2 might be a rent for me down the road.R1 was really, really bad .just a generic shooter with nothing new to offer.Plain jane COD style weapons, controls, movement etc.and meh about the 60 man online lagathon..gameplay of gears is so much > than Resistance its on a totally different level..endwar might be competition for R2 but GEars2 in the same breath as R2?? c'mon
Resistance isn't that bad. I actually enjoyed the first one for its co-op and I'm looking forward to the second. But you are right..R2 won't have the sales to match GeOW2, but it will still sell fairly good. It's a good exclusive.
In USA it will the reverse However in terms of worldwide sales it will be even . R2 might also win it . You never know But make no mistake R2 will outsell Gears 2 2:1 in europe R2 will tear away Gears 2 in reviews too Gears is just an updated UT3
I want resistance for the co-op and gears for the multiplayer...I only have a ps3 and wii but gears2 looks good. I might get a new PC soon, so I will be ready for the better version of gears
Hah well i think Tom Clanys Endwar will pretty much be screwed.. unless ppl have alot of money and so comes that epic week... IT IS COMING... the big 360 exclusive... vs. the big ps3 exclusive BATTLE lol.. oh i am looking forward to this... i wanna hear storys from gamespot.. gamestop... ign WHATEVER.. should be interesting wow thats gonna be a crazy week edit: (to the guy above me) i thought they announced that gears of war 2 was not coming to pc, only 360?
It just so happens to be my birthday
You wish cahill, r2 will be outsold by gears of war 2 3 to 4 times more. It's pretty much a given the scores will be in favor of gears of war 2 or very close with either one edging out the other. Personnaly after reading all of the reviews for previous titles on the market and ones that just came out. I expect gamespot to give both of them 9.5's. They gave Mass Effect PC 9.0, NHL 09 9.0, Crysis Warhead 9.0 and Rockband 2 a 8.5, Super Smash Bros Brawl a 9.5.
