Evolution Studios were today celebrating the news that their Playstation 3 off-road racer, Motorstorm has reached Number One spot in the Japanese, US and European charts...
As a steping stone for a new IP players couldn't really ask for more. when Motorstorm 2 is released it's gonna put it's own game to shame!!!!!
First what charts did it reach #1 at??? The article doesn't say. Surely can't be on games sold---GoW has that spot. I'm not saying it's a bad game but clearly this is a bad article!
If you look at the quote, it says the the top of all three PS3 charts...not overall charts. The article "enhanced" the phrasing by leaving out the keyword "PS3". It is a Playstation site afterall... I'm pretty curious as to how many copies they've sold. I assume it's doing pretty well. I haven't had a chance to play it yet as I don't know anyone with a PS3, but it looks like a lot of fun.
"To see Motorstorm top the European, the Japanese and the US PlayStation 3 charts is just fantastic," why do you guys care anyway! Why can't you just be happy? WHat makes you go....oooh an article about a ps3 title selling well...let's go and say it's a load of crap. Why I ask you (shikwan) WHY!? **edit** Sorry Hokie that wasn't at you at all...that was at shikwan. Sorry to not say that. I thought that was clear. Ooops. Hope you didnt punish me.
I don't see anything in my post that is "saying a load of crap". I was responding to shikwan's remarks about what list it's #1 on. As a matter of fact, I also stated that the game looked like a lot of fun and I assume that it's selling well. The only thing I attacked was the wording in the article, which clearly does leave out a keyword...doesn't it? What about that is saying a load of crap about MotoStorm or the PS3? Why do you attack me without actually reading my post? Why I ask YOU, why? EDIT: Deepbrown - Sorry, I saw the "you guys" in your post and assumed you meant both of us. As for "punishment"...NO, I certainly did NOT give you negative feedback for that one. I don't do that often...just for the fanatics...and they probably only had one bubble to begin with. :)
First, as I said the article is bogus--NOT the game. And RARELY do you see me posting in obvious fanboy (Xbox-based or PS3-based) articles. Even though (as you pointed out, Hokie) it is based on PS3 charts, does this mean that it outsold R:FoM??? I really don't think so but I could be wrong. But it doesn't matter though does it? Obviously little jackashes like deepbrown will 'punish' anyone he thinks is NOT a PS3 Fanboy...i.e. Xbox fanboys, Wii fanboys AND True Gamers. It's people like you who bring down 'neutral' game sites like this one. Thanks alot ash whole.
shikwan is sooooo dumb, like mentally challenged dumb, seriously, it amazes me that you have the abilitly to use a computer and type actual sentance.. simply amazing
You do know what sales charts are don't you? They say how a game has sold in a week...not overall sales!!! If it did it would mean that Mario Brothers on N64 was on top of the sales chart. Or that Titanic was at the top of the movie chart now... "And RARELY do you see me posting in obvious fanboy (Xbox-based or PS3-based) articles." lol ok ok... "Evolution Studios celebrate Motorstorm success" and you're telling them they shouldn't be celebrating? How kind of you. I will bash anyone who comes charging in with a moronic comment that is there only to bash. I've done with ps3 fanboys as well and I will do it when you do the same.
People like you (Shikwan) get punished because you attack someone personally for their opinion and otherwise add nothing constructive to the conversation. Don't make it what its not.
giggidy giggidy gooooooooo
how many copies of motorstorm have been sold. because of all the hype you guys gave this game, it should be at least around or more than 1 million sold by now!!
if it hasn't reached a million it will very shortly. if there's one game i'd have to play outta the games that are out, Motorstorm would be it. it's that good. can't wait for the new tracks.
I have two games for my PS3: Resistance and Motorstorm. For Motorstorm to be at the top doesn't really seem to be that big of a deal. C'mon Lair... or Heavenly Sword...
well the ps3 will prop have about 4 games soon that will be a must own, R:fom HS MS Lair and thats only in about 5 months since launch, so its obvios that sony can get the games and also some good third party titles oblivion assassins creed amry of 2 sranglehold so sony can do it, its just up to them
It's great to be a lauch title. Specially when the game you made is the only one in the genre. If anybody like racing games what other choice did they have? Let's see how they do when they have to compete among other great racing games heading to the PS3.
Motorstorm the only racing game? RidgeRacer, F1, Need4Speed...a few others. granted Motorstorm is the best option, but its far from the only one.
I was refering to games like Grand Turismo, not ports that you can always get on the 360. I can guarantee you that the games you and deepbrown mentioned did not move many consoles. Besides these games are nothing like motorstorm; it would be more appropiate to compare it to Dirt.
F1 is a PS exclusive. It's a RACING game. It's about as appropirate to compare the game to dirt as it is to F1. Motorstorm is totaly different from ANY racing game I've played.
bladstar. Like burnout! wooooo ps. there are about 3 other racing games on the ps3....
I'm sorry but I had to say it. I played this game yesterday at the Sony Store while on break and can honestly say, with no fanboy bias, that I really was not that impressed. For all the hype you guys have put on it, I thought it would be great. But no. It's a rental at best. But then again, considering the slim pickings the PS3 has, I guess that's why it sells. But, I'm not a big racing fan and that's just my opinion so don't kill me to much!
i dont know if you played the fullversion but i know that the fullversion kicksass. the graphics in the demo are by far not so good like in the fullversion. in the fullversion the graphics are fantastic especially in some tracks. the best graphics i have seen so far, and i have seen a lot.
I'm all for racing games, all types, the realistic GT, to the fun, remember when need for speed was all about outrunning cops, what happened to that, and I am going to try and burnout when it comes out. But heres the thing about motorstorm, everyone gives it crap about only 8 tracks, but these tracks are monstrous. There are different routes for each type of vehicle, throw in weather conditions ( rain makes the entire bottom floor muddy and its gets pretty crazy). Now throw in the fact that you can be like 7 different types of vehicles. I can be a Semi for gods sake, and just run through everything without blinking an eye, or I can be a motorcycle or ATV and dodge traffic, fun thing about using a bike, get into a good accident, and do a face plant into a wall, slow motion with rag doll physics is the funniest thing. Half the fun is having some crazy 4 car exploding crash, pausing, and rotating the camera to see the carnage, the physics are crazy. Thats not even mentioning how fun online is. This is a good game.
This game is really amazing and the developers should be congratulated for their hard work, you easily get a different experience every time you play. I only play online.
this game is great on many levels. I really like the different routes you can take. Like being a semi, and merrily going along the valley floor, without anyone nearby, then all of a sudden , buggys and bikes fly out of nowhere over your head, the places where teh different tracks converge is the funnest, total carnage sometimes. The AI is pretty good in the game, but yeah, nothing compares to racing against other people, they can be total pricks sometimes. haha
Sometimes it pisses me off when I'm doing good and I'm at #1 and then some fool comes from behind me and spins me so I lose control or run into a rock. I've never yelled so much at a game.
It's a game that can Pi$$ you off then right after make you go Whoa.. that wreck was awesome.. I don't know, I can't really stay angry at the game. Everytime I do, there's something that makes me go wow.. "Owwww.. hehe that had to hurt!" after a bike gets mauled by a rig.. The game is great.. lol. Lol.. I have 72% win percentage online.. Raced about 130 races I think.. I enjoy the game quite a bit.. PSN ID: Hymons
haha yeah i've quit angrily multiple times, but thats whats so great about it, Ive never really had a racing game that I was that into, or where things could change that quickly. I'm tellin you, you havent properly played a racing game until you run over a bike, and have the biker get stuck in your grill, with legs dangling over the hood, as you try and mow down other bikers. So fun. You know how in GTA sometimes you just wanna mess around and see how many people you can kill and how long you can have the cops chase you. Well sometimes I play this game, just to see how many crazy wrecks I can cause. This game would be awesome if you could take a snapshot of the screen, kinda like how they did that with LBP on the skateboard, that would be really cool in this game.
I remember getting flinged like 40ft. in the air while riding a bike, it would be crazy if I could just pause and snap that. I've never seen a biker get stuck on the grill, that's some funny sh*t right there. Another fun part of this game is getting revenge, it's such a sweet satisfaction, especially with a headset talking trash.
