Too bad it isn't multi-platform.
holy crap this game is mine. the graphic is very amazing. the first pic is my favorite one, i want this weapon !!! i hope the gameplay will not suck, but i know it will be good !!! damn good job.
This is freakin hot... OMGOSH!!!! this launch title is seriously shaping up to be a fabulous looking game. with just 3 more months to finish up the polish this game may just be what holds off gears of war... and thats just my opinion. it's damn impressive visually. and it will totlally rock. i remeber playing the e3 build at may. i played it on my birthday ^^ this game was so gritty and frantic, and quite solid, i gotta say my ex[pectations for this game is quite high and i will be copin this at launch, Can i get a 40 players online death match with every other people who will be getting this game. Go insomniac Go, do the damn thing because ps3 will be making it's statement. this is defininatley one of the triple a launch titles for ps3...
This game is looking really good, and it's obvious that this is all in-engine. I don't think Sony is really going to hurt Gears of War at launch unless they bring out a huge surprise like the next Devil May Cry at launch or a month after, or MGS4 with the same scenario. But either way, Sony won't have enough systems out to hurt MS at that point. Plus, Gears of War is a fine looking game in it's own right.
I don't know, it does not seem so special to me. Don't get me wrong, it does look good, but seems average for a next gen game.
ahh its looking sweeeet, 3 months of polish sounds very good to me. game sounds solid, interesting weapons, its gritty.. almost reminds me of killzone? and all killzone needed was polish.... too bad i cant see the last 2 screenshots
this game is improving a lot 4 a luanch titile this game awsome can't wait
that not one xbox 360 launch title or 2nd GEN game
have 40 players online
Chang3 is Coming
They've dropped it down to 30fps, I believe, to focus on the online and physics.
I'm very excited about picking this game up come launch; the weapons seem really cool. Especially the Sapper. Hopefully the online play is fun, with some inventive modes. I've never been a big fan of gaming online, so I figure this is a good game to get a feel for it with.
single player 30 fps
multiplayer is 60 fps its on the gameinformer magazine
looking good. it'll DEFINATELY be on my list of launch games to buy.
We only need to see the final build of the game in action - then we will now if its a killer shooter.
This looks amazing but I think COd3 and BIA: Hells Highway will be better looks wise and gameplay wise.
Err...No, You would say that cause Cod3 and Hells highway is coming out for both PS3 AND 360, So whatever man. And they also said they still have time to add more polish to it, So its going to look flamin awesome.
I sed that because in MY OPINION YOU ASSHOLE COD and BIA look better and will probably be better considering they are the same type of game.
It's only been 3 months and the game already looks this Amazing?! Heh, i'm definitely looking forward to its progress over the remaining 3 months till launch. This game might end up giving Gears of War a run for its money.
we never know until we play the game
COD2 is fun no doubt
This game is going to be a true killer app! The future is almost here, with The PlayStation 3!
If I was getting a PS3 at launch I would get this game.
yea if I was actually going to get a ps3 i would get this but i think cod and bia got it beat.
.......assured to kick some major butt come this November. By the looks of what we are seeing here, this is an AAA movie quality title. I surely wasn't expecting to see Nathan Hale is such detail, the 2nd and third pics depicting also what excellent art style they are using, have simply taken my breath away, loving this game each day more and more and waiting for more news about it...I'm sure its a game big, big time !!!
this looks great. in my opinion it looks a lot more fun than say gears of war and im sure it will own gow online. both look great but resistance looks more fun already. But the aming could need some ajusting it looks a little slow. enviroments look sic
Im still havent seen good quality textures on the screenshots. I hope the PS3 can compete in the texture dept. with the 360, otherwise it will always be behind the 360 in the graphics dept. I hope it improves!!! WELCOME CHANG3!!!
to say that this game will give gears of war a run for it's money is like saying the 3DO is more powerful that a PS3 or 360. The team making this game have made a huge jump in terms of visuals from the last time they showed the game. I'm quite impressed. Will it deter me from getting a 360 or Wii.... no. But it is one egg in the basket.
Gears is on a completely different level. However even though i think cod and bia will be better, it may give those games a run for their money.
Note: By the way the gears image is from the playable E3 demo and it still looks better even though the resistance pic is as of today. Damn! I cant wait to see how it looks at launch and if anyone can polish a game, its epic.
pixelated flat grass, check.
lo-res ground texture, double check.
I'm just messing guys. I'm sure the game will be fun. ^_~
Yea I know you just messing cuz none of that is true.
Gave me a good laugh tho.
i uh, did look at the picture. it actually Does have aliasing and low-res grass/dirt.
get some glasses DJ but even if that were true Gears still looks better.
Actually come to think of it there isnt enough hype for this game to give anything a run for its money.
Actually there is no hype at all.
Dont compare a launch title to a second gen game, Compare it to another 360 SHOOTER launch title goddamn it.
Why would he do something stupid like that?
2nd gen 360 titles are supposed to be compared to ps3 launch titles because they are coming out at the same time you fool(holiday 06).
No they aint, Comparing a second gen game to a first gen game Aint exactly fair because a 2nd gen title is obviously going to be better than a first gen game you idiot, So to be fair compare 2 first gen games...For example compare Perfect dark to resistance.
Both games are coming out at the same time and both games have been in development for the same time therefore gears along with every other 360 second gen title should be compared to ps3s launch titles. Also you idiot launch titles cant be compared to launch titles because your comparing games to ones that have had over an additional year of development.
360 2nd gen games were in development for the same amount of time as PS3's 1st gen titles. PS3's games look only slightly better because it is more capable than the 360 ( by how much is debatable but to me it's irrelevant). IMO they don't look $200 better than the 360 games YET so that's why I'm holding off on buying one. I'm not going to use half of the features on the PS3 anyway so in my mind I'm paying WAY too much for what I'm going to use it for - which is play games! All the other stuff I can just do on my new computer that I just bought. Why would I want to do that on my game console anyway!? Sorry for the long post.
You can't even compare this game to GOW. GOW is a system seller. I would hardly call this a system seller.
Get a 360 and GOW.
but i would still give ps3 devlopers more time to figure out the system before trying to say which system is greater since the ps3 is suposedly harder to develop for. plus you cant exactly compare the graphics of gow (which are the most impressive part of gow from what iv seen)because of the numerical difference of players on screen compared to resistance. all th videos for gow had like 4 or 5 enemies and you have a team of 4 or five. even on the high end its only 10 head compared to like 16 i counted in a paused frame in a resistance demo.If anything compare the game play thats what counts . btw anyone know the official # of people on screen at the same time for gow or resistance?
nobody was trying to say which system is greater so what are you talkin about? And unless its announced beforehand, I'll let you know the official # of people on screen when I play it in November.
Big dissapointment. who actually wants to play "3rd Person" pop and duck or whatever.. seriously..
hater. Obviously likes of people want to play that game since its the game that got the most praise and hype at E3. Besides I would rather play a tactical shooter than a mindless run and gunn fps. cough cough resistance.
What are you on? GOW is the best looking game to date.
You cant rate a game based on it Using the UNREAL ENGINE, lame a$$ programmers cant even do the tech. in-house.
Sure put 6 people on screen, with the highest resolution characters u can pump out, zero physics, and small Hallway style (linear) play, so you can use binary space partitions, aka.. (BSPs)...
I'm telling u major dissapointment. its a Novelty, more of a gimmick similar to the wiimote
i don't know anyone that's very excited about Gears, and that's including the three guys with 360s. All three of them (and even me, believe it or not) were originally interested until we saw the gameplay videos from E3. (yes, THIS year's E3) I think Jon is still gonna try it out, but the other two kinda lost faith. Everyone else either doesn't play games or just want the PS3. (one wants a PS3 and a WiiWii)
My friend Chris specifically said as he was watching the gameplay clip, "aliens huh....the hell, 3 shotgun hits to the face and he's still not dead?!"
well thats your friends and thats their opinion. I personally dont know anyone that knows about blu-ray, no one that has even heard of resistance, heavenly sword, or warhawk for that matter. However I think that Gears of war is going to be THE must have title of 2006 and when I showed my friends the gameplay that was shown from E32006 their jaws dropped.
i understand no one particulary stated that they thought gow justifyed the 360 being a better console but if we are comparing gow w/ res. than were comparing consoles being as they are fist party games, and i only said that because a lot of people on this site side very strictly with one console with out giving others a try. some call them fan boys.

Get a 360 and GOW. How the hell do you know have you played the f#cken thing. i mean people side with a system like its ther f#cken lover. try "no this game isnt very impressive" and "i think gow is better than resistance because blady bla". not uuh "that [email protected]
Personally despite all that I do think that Gears of War justifies buying a 360 over a ps3 but to say it means the 360 is "better" because of 1 game I agree is a bit much. However I think that had Gears been a ps3 exclusive titles every sony fanboy on the planet would be trying to say it is the best thing since slice bread.
Does that answer your question, ya sellout. And yes I am in love with the 360. got a problem with it?
I'am guessin a lot of people want to play GOW being how it was best of E-3.....And also How do you know that the game is just pop and duck? Have you played it????
Just remember i told you. Seriously i would make sure i Rented the game first before i bought it. THink about it, its got nice Unreal Shiny graphics, and what else? Someone answer this question.. i constantly here it looks so good etc.. Its using a MILLION DOLLAR ENGINE NO CRAP!@ Unreal 07 LOOKs wonderful too, DUH!
What else... List your responses.
of course they bought unreal for 1 mil. Creating the engine from scratch would cost ten times that at least and take about five years to perfect. But that's what dev's do. Making the engine alway costs the most $ and time. About 90% on the engine and 10% for the content input.

Not only are the games not 200 dollars better but they dont look better at all to me. At best ps3 games are of equal quality to 360 games but I think most 2nd gen 360 games look better and I doubt ps3 games will ever look better than 360 games.
You are such a blind fanboy its not even funny.
all i know this game is hardcore
40 players online
graphics still improving 3months left til change will laucnh
all ican say swee...tt
also check naughty dog that game has been confirm all in real time
this game is gonna be amazing, i will be getting this game, see ya guys in some 40 player online deathmatch
@34: sry, its 30 fps for both sp and mp. Reason = more effects + destructible environments. Besides as long as its stable, it's fine by me.
BTW, we STILL have to see screens from the final build. I would say, pretty impressive screens for a FIRST-gen title. Must-buy title for the launch for me.
If you asked me what game on PS3 will go head up with your GOW 360 titles during the holidays I would tell you first that GOW isn't origional even though it has great GFX, what can they add to gameplay that hasn't been done before?
Then I will tell you to do you research about a game called LAIR for PS3 developed by Factor 5!! here's some links to help you get some facts!!
GDC: PS3 Lair Demo
Lair and Why You Must Love Zee Germans
A New IP developed by an outstanding developer, with all new gameplay giving us gamers a new experience. That spells Next-Gen to me.
I like GOW but I still ask myself what can they develope that is truly new as far as gameplay goes? I hope that epic can pull through and see that new GFX is not everything us gamers want, gameplay + graphics + story is what makes AAA titles.
Schneider offered some distinguishing stats. Thanks to high-res graphics and orchestral music, the game, he said, currently takes up 22 Gigabytes of memory on a Blu-Ray disc, the new disc format supported by the PS3 and playing one-half of a VHS vs. Betamax format war erupting between tech companies throughout the year.
"We're going to fit more on a Blu-Ray disc than you could on an HD DVD," he said, referring to the competing format, which in its most basic discs can't hold more than 15 GB. More numbers: 40-player online matches at launch; 60 levels of player progression while playing online; two-player offline co-op. Phillips promised better, deeper support than any Xbox Live title.
Next came a level from halfway into the game. A deep crater in a rustic English town makes a foundation for the elaborate metal alien node. An alien of Incredible Hulk proportions and armed with a massive flame-spitting gun prowled the crater floor. The game is gritty and grim.
Asked if anything in this bleak, gray, brown and yellow war shooter could claim inspiration from the bright, green, blue and silver "Ratchet and Clank" games, Schneider had a ready answer. " 'Ratchet and Clank' stood out because of the weapons," he said. "We've brought the same kind of design sensibility [to 'Resistance']."
Talk of "Ratchet" weapons conjures memories of guns that spat exploding bowling balls, including one that spawned small black holes and a cannon that turned enemies into sheep. "Resistance" guns are designed to be fired with more of a grimace. The "augur" blasts energy that slows through a cover of sandbags but eventually punches through. A sniper rifle comes equipped with a slow-motion viewpoint that allows players to juke between incoming energy bullets before firing from long range. The rocket launcher can leave its fired rocket suspended in mid-air until it finds a target and lets the journey end.
The "sapper" shoots goo. Fired on walls, it drips down onto enemies, sapping their life energy, naturally. This armament, Schneider said, couldn't be done last-gen. He pointed to the sapper's goo, including the "level of interaction between the globules from a physics standpoint."
He and Phillips did a developer cheat, nearly freezing the game world as they had Hale launch a bomb called the "hedgehog" — which is like a sea urchin — radiating 50 spikes. With the game slowed and the hedgehog gliding through the battlefield, Schneider talked about each of the 50 connected spikes probing the game world with their own artificial intelligence, assessing where they're about to make contact with the game's environment, when to ricochet and where to go. He pointed to enemies reacting with smooth, retreating animations. He noted the metal-on-metal ping as the hedgehog hit steel and said a different sound would have triggered if it tapped wood. He showed how the hedgehog figured out when to suddenly extend its spikes into a waist-high obstacle and erupt toward nearby enemies.
Then they fired another, this time without the slowdown, and that complexity re-emerged quicker than two finger-snaps. No, that couldn't be done on a PS2, they said. Not like that.
Schneider said the game was developed with four criteria: immersiveness, believability, fun and creepiness. "That was the guiding light for us from beginning to end," he said.
this game looks very nice but it seems like it's a call of duty ripoff with dif. characters :/ but who's to say thats a bad thing :) finally a real game on the ps3
