$90? what have you been seeing?

meant for 2

Not a 90 dollar 2 hour Halo 3 Expansion pack.

They already said Halo ODST has a 6-7 hour singleplayer and its a standalone game without the need of Halo 3 so its $60 not $90.

Shouldn't you be in the Open Zone?

Ps3 exclusives are known for their quality so it's only obvious TRUE gamers would prefer quality.

They should have made ODST $30 bucks and called it a day.

By comparison Xbox 360 gamers look like they are on the short end of the stick. Also, M.A.G has tons of potential...I'm really curious about how the persistent battles will work.

First, why would they sell their game at 30bucks when they know it'll sell over 5mill in a year at $60? That doesn't make much business sense does it?

With MAG how it works is, like with other FPSs games like KZ2 & R2, the more you level up the more of the battle field you can see and influence. When you initially start out as a low level solider, most of the time you'll only be interacting with your squad and the game will feel like it's an 8v8 game though you'll definitly get the sense that there's a bigger battle going on around you and you can sometimes be ordered to join bigger battles.

As time goes on and you level up, you'll start to access more stuff that let's you see the bigger battle. By the time you get to be the top level player (or even the level b4 that) you'll have access to pretty much the whole map. RTS Gamers that love FPS will definitely look to get to this level cause it takes on a strategy aspect but players who aren't interested in strategy gaming at all will likely always want to remind a squad leader at best even though they've leveled up a lot.

The game really let' you choose how deep you want to go with the experience. It's not some 128v128 frag fest cause, though it sounds nice, the would be crap gameplay. If you're dying from grenades every 2secs you won't find that fun but you will definitely feel like you're play with 127 other players as you level up and a lot of the time you'll gel btw 8v8 type battles to 32v32 type battles depending on the situation.

The game is insanely awesome. I hope it does well for a game coming out in January.

people are starting to see that odst is basically an expansion...

topdawg1223174d ago

I agree, Mag is different and this could be big, they should include headsets in the special edition and in future ps3s to get the hype up. I just hope this doesn't attract the racists and little kids that are so rampant on xbl
