The Japananese Resistance 2 boxart popped on the internet.
The boxart looks way much better then the state version
A lot better.
Edit: double post sorry
Yeah, looks more badass.
I swear developers put a much better box art on the collector's edition to get you to buy it. (Resistance 2, Gears 2). :P
Agreed. Several months ago Insomniac sent out a short survey where you could choose which boxart they should use for the game. Europe and the US collector's edition got the one I chose. I thought the regular edition's was pretty lame, but that didn't stop me from buying the game. As for the Japanese boxart, I'd advise against displaying creatures with large teeth. I think the Japanese kind of find it off-putting since they changed the appearance of Crash Bandicoot and Ratchet from Ratchet and Clank on their boxarts to show hardly any teeth at all. Just something I'd be curious to follow.
Nice boxart. A lot better than the US boxart, but I still like the European boxart the most. :)
I don't mind the US. Boxart. It's not "bad" by any means, but yeah... I think the CE Boxart > any. If it were me, I'd have something like... Nathan Hale standing in front of like 100 Chimerans, that would be epic! Also, I'd make that b*tch holographic! Like the old Rare Pokemon cards :P
:P lol. It may remind some gamers of Resident Evil covers... you know... zombies in front of the cover. Cool, regardless.
I wish many of the US boxarts can be as good as Japan. IMO, I find Japanese boxarts much more appealing. As for this boxart, I would have to say it's equal to the CE boxart. I don't prefer one over the other.
Just realized this box art all throughout the world, rather than 3 different box arts. Then again...it's just box art.
Ya but in a way it does depend I mean ive seen some games with some bad box-art that i didnt want to play but they turned out being fun anyway. If -you have a good one it can help sales, a bad one it could make people get the wrong idea. It like judging a book by its cover.
Maybe to us gamers, but when some casual is walking through the store, and has no idea what game to buy... Boxarts really do come in handy at helping the game sale. I remember back before i had internet and I used to buy the $20 PS2 games, and I bought the 1st Ghost Recon game... Worst game I ever owned... But amazing boxart! **EDIT** Bubbles up, Nitro... we think alike!
I like the US cover more. I need to see the Euro cover tho.
1) US Boxart 2) EU Boxart 3) JP Boxart Attached is to see them to compare!
I love the EU one
3 i like how it looks
the EU version kooks the same as the US CE version, i likes
Japanese version is the best IMO. The Euro boxart is the same as NA Collector's Edition. I actually kind of laughed at the US boxart when I saw it for the first time and I don't normally give two sh!ts about what's on the cover. Hale looks kind of constipated, but at least the game is awesome. Only thing stopping me from playing it is my wife telling me to quit playing the "shooting games" when she's around and her constantly wanting to play LBP (not complaining or anything).
And knowing me, I probably am... but my friend told me the Euro boxart is the same as the USA. CE Boxart. Hmm, Anyways, in regards to your question, I choose #2.... I mean, look how badass Nathan looks there! **EDIT** Thanks for pointing out that Nathan looks constipated... now every time I look at my R2 case, I'm going to think that! Hey, You would feel the need to go #2 as well if there was a Big ass Chimeran ship, and Chimerans behind you! The difference is, for Nathan... There is no time for #2 on the battlefield, he does have a world to save, ya know? On a side note... "Your comments contains 1 words that are not allowed" The word is not allowed: sh*t"....... I didn't mean to use s*it in my comment, I spelled "ship" like that on accedent... See, thanks to DRU, I have sh*t on my mind...
Who likes the US box art the most? Hale is the main character, and looks like a complete badass in the picture, with gigantic ships in the background and chimaera following him. I just like the look on Hale's face... He looks like a possessed man.
Yeah, the U.S. box art sort of defines who he is and what he is becoming more.
Much better boxart than the US version.
We always get shafted with the worst boxart. EU and japan gets better boxart than NA.
well, considering that EU usually gets game later; ya shouldnt really be complaining. but yeah. US boxart looks weird imo.
Touche. My EU buddies don't usually complain. Usually.
They should have regular competitions/votings for choosing the best coverarts. And MORE special/limited/collector editions packs.
That is nice :) Better than the one we're getting [EU], and I thought it was pretty sweet, just remains to be seen if the Japanese will buy this game, hopefully it'll do well :)
That's much better than the US Version lol.
I still like the EU version the best. jpn comes a close second..... then the normal US version... good thing im getting the EU version!
