Gamestop has a product page up for the PS3's highly anticipated shooter Warhawk. It details the contents of the retail disc version of the game, which is also being released as a downloadable game via the Playstation Network.
Great deal for those of us who are still shopping around for a headset.
We get a $25 free headset? Kool but I hear the downloadable version is only $20, so is the headset along with trailers and behind the scenes worth extra $40?
I mean the price is good with all that butttttttttt, for people who say darn it i have to spend 60bucks to get the headset, you can also choose to download the game, which hopefully is cheaper and then get the blue tooth headset for 25-40bucks and probably save around 15-20 dollars hopefully.
Ima freakin start cryin when this beta is over :(
so im deff gunna buy the disc...that way i feel like i actually own the game, plus extra features is cool but the free headset is killin since i am in need of one quite bad
I bet it costs $30 for the download. $20 would be awesome though.
20 would be sweet, but c'mon man. This is without question (at least for beta testers) a MUST have title. 30 is more than reasonable.
@wolfgang too true, this is an excellent game, seriously one of the best multiplayer games out there. And still will be at the end of this year.
Everyone's all excited about the bluetooth headset, but i don't know what you guys are thinking, but i think the big news here is the "Trailers for upcoming products" OMG, OMG, OMG! I can't wait for those amazing trialers! AHhahaha! :D
Why doesn't Sony just include the headset in each PS3 instead of packaging with a game that may or may not have wide appeal? I mean, Warhawk will do well enough...but the head set issue should just be addressed when they sell the console. I am assuming its a pretty low level headset...so why not throw it in w/ the console instead of this game?
Cause the last thing sony needs right now is higher production costs
Sony probably has the ieda that not everyone plays PS3 online or has a fast enough connection so putting it in something that they KNOW people will use for Online is a smarter way to go because they know it will be used instead of just waisted. Plus it sells more games and gets people online and use PSN and give more money for possuble updates or maps and stuff... In my opinion, this is a very smart move on Sony's part to add in the headset, I can tell you I am definantly buy it and the head set is a big reason why.
I picked up the Jabra 150 headset a month ago for 9.99 AR from Circuit City. It works great. Sounds like a good deal.
don't know whether or not to buy the disk version or not. This goes to anyone who was accepted into the beta, how is this game to play?is it good fun? looks like such good fun but watching videos does not give the whole story, can someone please give me the lowdown if they think this game is a worthy purchase for when it gets released?i loved battlefield 2 on the pc, this looks similar in terms of the fact its multiplayer chaos with everyone taking to the air, cars and foot....any oppinions please let me know
I think all the beta-testers accept a non-disclosure agreement everytime they sign on to play the game. I don't want to get ppl I know in trouble because I played split-screen with them, but I have to say if Battlefield was more arcade like and had cooler/better dogfighting, it would be Warhawk. Also I will definitely purchase this because downloaded games only lets you download the game 5 times (although I doubt the ps3 would break 5 times for me to redownload it, but I also will probably at some point change the hard drive, so that would be another download)
IM gonna Order the hole game on disk, and while im waiting for the game to arrive i download warhawk from store and play it until i get the disc. then i play the disc verjon and have a mic =P
I already have a headset. For anyone interested. Go to buy.com and order a logitech headset. Its 30 dollars, and with the mail in rebate, its 18 bucks. Same one at best buy was 60 dollars.
Not gonna get this game, im playing on the beta right now. Its really nothing special tbh.
hmm, interesting, you are the 1st beta tester I've heard to hold this opinion. And I talk to them daily. Oh well, the world would suck if everyone was the same.
if u think warhawk is nothing special pls do tell what u think is special then? lol war is a crazy fun game...ground - and air combat unstop - sold once again
gonna download this one... i already have a headset
I think they are testing the market response to download vs boxed games. Best way to test it is to throw one out and see. If the network one outsells the boxed one by 5:1, then clearly the market is ready for digitally distributed games (not necessarily for all HD content like HD video - 50GB downloads). If the boxed version outsells the download version 5:1 then clearly the market is not ready for digital distribution as some think. It will most probably determine their strategy forward. Highly anticipated title - good test for the market.
Good point. And looks like Download is the way for Warhawk. Even without a headset and other extra material, $20 downloadable version seems better. I for one will go with boxed version since I like to have the extra plus headset and holding the game box and looking at its cover can never be matched.
if a story has been posted about this, but there have been new Warhawk Beta invites sent out yesterday. i checked my account, and there it was! the game is a lot of fun (i don't like online gaming very much, but this game has converted me. i'm still hoping they'll release a single player version as DLC at some point, though), so if you signed up for the Warhawk Beta, check the PS Store, and see if there is a download option for the Beta.
I played online very little before the Warhawk beta. Now I'm on all the time. I tried the Shawdowrun demo after playing Warhawk and I was like WTH? People consider this game fun? They need some Warhawk in their life then.
i never thought i'd be excited about an online only game. i hate playing with nasally voiced kids who's balls haven't dropped yet, but damn if Warhawk isn't too much fun. i'll most certainly pick it up when it drops, but i don't know if i'm going to get the PSN version, or the Blu Ray version (simply for the headset, as it's hard to turn down a useful item like that). it seems like every week a new game is being added to my must have list. last week, i think, was Folklore, and now this week is Warhawk. what's going to happen next week? my wallet is going to be in trouble this fall, that's for sure.
Dont buy Madcatz Headset for ps3 it Sucks! i have it. its so bad Connecting to the ps3. its horrible ;(
If you download the game froms store its gonna take some space to the hardrive. but if you hace a blu-ray disc it wont take as much space as downloading it
what happens if my hard drive crashes.. and i'd have to re doawnload the game again... i hate the wait. lol!!! i'm too impatient, i dont mind owning another bluetooth headset. i'll keep it as a spare...
I'll buy the disc version, I really need a headset.
hold up $60 thats not right gamespot had better check their fact.
wait for this game. Can you set up clans in this game?
They got clans.
