wow this game is going to be huge

Violater4054d ago

I really hope we get this game by March 08 the latest.

Isn't this story already posted under a different title?

TheHater4054d ago

I don't think so. Because i check before posting it

That's huge! Nothing compared to Smash Bros Brawl, though.

Kleptic4054d ago

how many does Smash Bros. Brawl have?...KZ2 had like 140 the day they started the game, which has since grown close to 200 rumored...and doesn't crysis have like tiple that or something?...

I hadn't heard anything about smash bros brawl...but I guess that is what it will take to get a degree of Havok into a Wii game...j/k

Does that number alarm anyone else? Man, the PS3 must be a bear to program if THESE guys have to put that many people into it. I have no doubt the game will be incredible but will they be able to show a profit? There's only a handful of companies that can put these kind of resources into a project.

lmao lets all try and turn this into a negative thing, thats pretty sad, MGS is a huge franchise it should be expected with such a game, it will sell a serious amount of systems worldwide when it's released anyway plus it's coming out after christmas...

Captain Tuttle4054d ago (Edited 4054d ago )

Tell me how 200 people working on a video game is a good thing for the industry.

Edit: lmao @ actionbastard!

Good point "TheHater"...I hadn't considered online. Still alot of people though but not as bad when you consider the multiplayer. Maybe they're developing an engine to license...that would make more sense.

ActionBastard4054d ago

I think half of them are working on the 360 version. So that would be 10 people for every DVD it will be on...

TheHater4054d ago

The are also working on MGS online. So 200 hundred people isn't too much.

"Tell me how 200 people working on a video game is a good thing for the industry."

Although 200 people working on one game may seem a bit over kill, and that it may not be a good thing.... but this is the way I see it.

200 people working on a project means 200 people in the industry have jobs. Period.

This may not look good, but have jobs for all of those people is a good thing.

When I graduated from Art School (3d animation) the market was flooded, and it was very difficult to get a job anywhere.

I don't see 200 person projects being a bad thing in this way.

Thats why its a very good thing that these big developers are programing big games now. After there finished. They will sell there middle-ware off to the little company's, along with the new edge 2.0 tool, (Insomniac Games)is already helping out other 3rd parties. PS3 will have lots of great tools to work with. It will take a bit more time though. Maybe another 2 years.

Killzone finished November 2008, Then they sell those amazing tools to other company's, and that games takes 3 years to make.
2011 will be a great year for PS3. no joke.
