Today?s roundup is all 2s and 4s. Two demos battling for consumer mind share, two Battlefield games, and content for Street Fighter 4 and Left 4 Dead.
Both Killzone 2 and Halo Wars will be good games and sell well. (How much do you want to bet both sides of N4G disagree with that statement)
You heard it here first. Halo Wars will outsell Killzone 2 Why? Cause it already has a larger fanbase
halo wars will sell good yes but as good as halo ? i reallllly doubt that since its not halo directly its a rts int he halo universe without the masterchief.
its an RTS, they never sell huge numbers, but this one will sell better than the average RTS, simply because of the name
How can anyone compare a shooter to and RTS?
killzone 2 will slorta halo wars and no it doesnt have a larger fanbase bacause wars aint a fps while killzone 2 is so i think killzone tops it in quality (my miles) and sales
Killzone 2, Star Ocean, Halo Wars, great time for things to pick up! During my midterms... ....I will lose a bubble and get 10+ disagrees because a) I mentioned Halo Wars and Star Ocean in a positive manner b) I mentioned Killzone 2 and Halo Wars in the same sentence c) I mentioned midterms....which always suck to have to write.... N4Sony
It doesnt matter if its an RTS, FPS, Racing or Barbie game. As long as its got the name Halo on it will millions. It will also get the dumb gamers who just see the name and dont realise its not an FPS.
well i know one side disagrees. lol killzone 2 and halo wars are uncomparable. for starters you should never compare a FPS and a RTS....they are too different. also killzone 2 will sell more....
I don't think I compared them at all beyond the fact they will be good games... It makes your statement even more ironic that you in fact did attempt to compare RTS and FPS sales at the end of your post...
They are compared because they both compete for the same $60. They are both games. And Halo might make RTS fans out of people who normally play FPS. This is the first real test for the Halo brand outside of FPS, and I'm anxious to see how it plays out.
Halo Wars......Killzone 2.....Street Fighter 4. This article has it all.
Ahh... yes it does my friend yes it does A FPS a RTS and a fighter loving it!!!!
I'm not convinced Killzone 2 will sell more, given how relatively poorly all the PS3 killer apps have sold so far. I don't think LPB or Resistance 2 broke the top 10 for very long. Regardless, I expect Halo Wars will fade to obscurity. Halo fans like shooters. RTS games are much less tactile, and much less immediately satisfying. Plus it's hard to think when you're shotgunning a beer and putting on a backwards visor.
do hardcore halo fans even like rts games? :)
I like RTS games and Halo
No they probably don't like rts games but they do like halo games. and while a man may not like pretzels but love chocolate, he may dare to try a chocolate covered pretzel and enjoy it.
im not saying its impossible but i think you are in the minority :)
I played the Halo Wars demo,pretty good for a console RTS. Nowhere near Killzone 2 in terms of polish and excitement,but I can see myself buying HW when the inevitable game drought hits
Falio wars = FOTY (Flop Of The Year) Killzone 2 = GOTY (Game Of The Year) If any of you losers with no games to play in 2009 actually want to include the allmighty KZ2 in the same sentence of that future Flop Fail wars this is the best way to doit Hahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
I dabbled in halo wars just a few minutes ago as well as playing KZ2 at a friends house there both good games and neither will flop
Bubbles for you ftwps3
I'm a HALO fan, but i don't think HALO WARS will be as big as KZ2. Maybe HALO OSDT but not HALO WARS.
Only time will tell... but as a rule of thumb FPS' outsell RTS' on a regular basis.
i need a killzone demo code!!
i need a killzone demo code!! No you don't, just make a UK account, Pick an address in UK, or elsewhere in europe and download it. I'm in uk, and d/l off of USA PSN all the time.
really thanks ill have to try that
thanks alot, downloading now
And share the account with some friends. That's how my friend and I got the KZ2 demo, despite living in the USA. =]
f u douchebag
first of all i think halo wars will sale tons based on name alone. killzone has the hype, but we will see how many people accually go out and get it. im downloading my demo right now and hope i love it. as for halo wars, its a bit to slow and methodical but hey. it has halo in the title, and it will not only sale well, but get great reviews becuase of it.
Certainly. Halo sells games. But I think a lot of FPS fans are about to find out they are RTS fans too. Look at HW as a gateway RTS drug.
I played both Killzone 2 and Halo Wars demos today. I liked both but certainly enjoyed Killzone 2 more. The only I didn't like about Halo Wars is that you can't seem to pan the camera the you way you want to. Halo Wars certainly would of been great on the PC but it's not bad on the console. Killzone 2 is really a blast to play, the short demo makes you want more that's for sure!
guess what, i dont give a f*ck which outsells which, i just want the games, i dont knwo about you but why dont you leave the sales numbers to the companies to worry about? play ur part and buy the game if you want it
Sales don't help us. GOOD GAMES DO. Sales are for fanboys and Greenberg.
if you ppl talk about sales... then "wii play" butt fcked every single game on this planet.... thts not a fair comparison at the first place.....
Halo Wars vs Killzone 2? I would have to be logical and say that 1 million + preoders have Killzone 2 written all over them. I wonder how many pre orders Gaylo Wars has? I guess there isn't enough sold to really bring that up?
but will not buy it because it is the same old , same old fps around. so -1 for kz2 preorders
BF1943..............kickass. BF1942 is my most played game ever and I'm gonna go play it now because it's just so great. wow I can't believe itll be on PS3 =')
Halo Wars now is my favorite RTS game... probably until starcaft comes out. I doubt it will sell more than Kill Zone 2 simply because consoles do not have lots of RTS fans. And if it does than I believe Sony should drop the console business and focus on something else. I do guaranteed one thing though. While Sony is currently trying to break through when it comes to FPS... It seems like Microsoft once again by making mainstream a genre that was though to be impossible to work on consoles. I played the demo a few times and the graphics and game dynamic are way better than any command and conquer... and trust me I have them all.
I agree with some of your statement, but I believe that Sony is doing just fine with the FPS genre.
May be for xbox halo was successful FPS. but ever heard of Golden EYE on N64 ?? These new gamers know nothing but Halo.
That is true, about Halo and it's history and lore. People who are die hard fans of a franchise that offers new outlets, and venue's, will focus and emerse themselves, in a new realm, just so they know happens within the universe's story.
I meant immerse excuse my cander, I still want to play some good'ol Street Fighter.
it's easy FPS>RTS Halo Wars is another stupid Strategy game for consoles owners.. Killzone 2 best FPS ever.. !! See u in KZ2 MP !
Just because it is an FPS doesn't mean it will automatically out sell an RTS. Look at Starcraft for the PC, it has been selling for the last 11 years. It had sold nine million copies sold worldwide as of 21 May 2007. This proves that just because it is an RTS doesn't mean it wont sell...
I played both Killzone 2 and Halo Wars demos and I enjoyed them both a lot! For some strange reason I liked them both then the Resident Evil 5 demo...but perhaps that's just me.
Everyone's complaining about how bad RE5 is. But Halo Wars and KZ2 are definitely top notch stuff.
RE5 is incredible!
street fighter 4 dlc = lame but i cant wait to play it along with kz2
I don't want to pay more... ...but I will. It's Street Fighter.
You know, am I the only one that actually cared about BC 2 coming to PC? And the L4D DLC sounds very uninspiring.
I think halo wars will sell better then end war, I'm sorry i'm just being honest halo wars is not appealing to me, just the name halo attached to this herendous game made me download it, i believe the demo is 1.40 gb, Yeah i'm erasing it right after this message, The gameplay is not halo in anyway, the controls are smooth for a console rts, and that's what it is, a console rts, nothing against halo it's just the rts genre's dont work on consoles, ask any serious rts player and they will tell you the computer is where its at when comes to rts, i hope it does well and it probably will, but at the sametime i'm second guessing it,this game is so bland, and i know there are alot of people that are thinking the same thing as of me.
I am a serious RTS players... so serious that I got basically all RTS games on PC and the xbox 360... I even have the same game on the PC and the xbox 360. You probably can't get used to the controls over mouse and keyboard and I respect that. When I first purchased my xbox 360 I hated FPS... I purchased COD3 and Battle Field and hated them... as a PC FPS gamer just couldn't get used to it. I was one that used to think that FPS belongs ONLY on the PC. and it was the case for a long time... FPS direct ports also do not work on consoles... but once some FPS like Halo 1,2 got it right... than now no one doubts how great FPS can be. I think that EA did a great job with LOR and C&C for the xbox 360... though these games were direct ports of the PC RTS games... Now Halo Wars perfected its because it's not a port hence why it works... it does not make you feel like you MUST plug a keyboard or mouse to play it. Even thought lots of people hoped that Halo Wars failed and doubted it could be done I always though it would eventually be done right... Now many more will come and even the Playstation will benefit from this.... developers now have a model and gamers will be more open minded about it which translate to more revenue for all console makers... how is that a bad thing? Take a look at Halo... though it's hated among the Playstation fan community... Halo removed that taboo from consoles that FPS are destined to suck and fail.... now the biggest most anticipated game on the PS3 this year is a FPS (kill zone 2).
Dude, I don't know a single PS2 owner that "hated Halo". In fact, most of us still play Halo 2 from time to time; it's the perfect party game.
Halo Wars is a very good RTS...probably the BEST console FPS. Ensemble really went out with a bang here. Killzone 2 is a revolution though. It is the most realistic game I've ever played. You never do the same thing twice. Everybody I've talked to has played the demo at least 10 times...which is insane! Only demos I've played that much: NFL Blitz - PS1 Odd World: Abe's Odyssey - PS1 Devil May Cry 4 - PS3 & PC RE5 - PS3 & 360
I guess we can all admit that feb is a great month for both xbox 360 and PS3 owners... it seems we will be busy playing great games. I know I will be playing. -Halo Wars -Street Fighter IV -Star Ocean which will queue lots of play time... And then March with: -Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X -Ninja Blade I'm not into Resident Evil... so, I will skip it... graphics are great but that's just not my priority. So, while anti-xbox people keep saying how there aren't any games for the xbox 360 to play... I will try to see how I can find time to actually play some of them. Good thing I don't have a PS3 because Kill Zone 2 would be on the top 1 of games to buy. Based on the reviews sounds like a great game.
CRAP! I still haven't played Fallout 3. I'm so behind already.
Fallout 3 is awesome. I've got 20 hours into it and I feel like I haven't even scratched the surface. Oh, and buy Clover. : )
I also still need to play Dead Space. I always tell myself not to buy any games until I catch up but that's impossible. Especially since Fallout 3 is a big one. I'm still buying Street Fighter 4 with arcade stick of course and Halo Wars.
halo wars? what this? ..... :P
havent gotten kz2 demo but watched a blu ray movie other day... got the halo wars demo listend to the voice guy saying this is a warthog to select the warthog move cursor over vehicle and press a had enough of that bs then watched a documentary of bigfoot with lenord nemoy on netflix ...
halo wars will make Microsoft a lot of money, but it will lose gamestop a lot of money due to trade-ins (especially if its cash) because many dont know it isnt a RTS..and is it me or has neither sony or MS done any advertising? but from what i here (i dont own a 360) it seems like its a great game because the controls feel like a 360 game, and not a PC game..and of course we all know killzone2 will sell alot, its not rocket science
$4 for costume packs, screw u capcom
