The boxart looks way much better then the state version

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

SaiyanFury3626d ago

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'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!
