Sony has apparently changed the 3DTV Bundle that was originally to include Resistance 3 as its benchmark 3D title included. Insomniac games has revealed the details via their Twitter account.
I am trying to decide if this is a good move or a bad one. It makes sense because I heard Motorstorm: Apocalypse in 3D is great, but I think Killzone 3 would have been a better sell.
Makes sense on why they would do that since basically they were giving away the game...Ohhh well I was siked just because I was going to be getting two things that I wanted for one affordable prize...though Im dissapointed it still isn't stopping me from getting the 3D display...If it wasn't for Uncharted 3 then I would of lost complete interest lol
is good and its more easier for parents vs a shooter
Well Said and that is the plan.
This really isn't aim for a younger audience you know and if so then they could have easily bundled it with LBP2 don't you think ? So that obviously isn't the plan.
Couldn't bundle LBP2 with a 3D tv as it is not a 3D game.
MS:A is great, but heck, R3+3DTV is much more tempting...
If you haven't played motorstorm apacalypes yet the you have to get this. The game is awesome!
What parent is gonna buy he or her kid a 3DTV?
you not seen all pixar /disney 3d? 3d tvs cost 2-3 hundred more than a regular HDTv
why does Sony like to give games people likely already have? Resistance 3 was a much better, newer, choice.
i guess trying to increase sales lol. PSN pass gnna make this game sell poor.
Gotta boycott that game!
I'm sure this will make the R3 community even better. You can know get cozier with the fewer people playing. Surely that is a feature! There is a reason why sequels sell over new IPs and by putting in an online pass, you are effectively hurting the ability to sell sequels in the future. Hope the short term gain (if any) was worth it.
Pathetic as always, make a loud announcement on E3 and then quietly back out...
yeah its bs... false advertsing for like 2 months lol
Nice, MotorStorm: Apocalypse got incredibly over looked so this should help sales. I hear it has impressive 3D too
not really sales if its free now is it?
Don't know why the disagrees because it's true, you can count it as a sale, but they're giving the game for free bundled with the TV...
What about all those free 360 given away when u buy a comp? They are counted as units sold as sikbeta said. Oh wait since its Sony doing it its stupid. I keep forgetting how things actually work. OT: I would have prefered Resistance 3 personally but I wouldn't mind giving MS: A a shot. Hey its free, right guys. LOL
thats like saying how microsoft sold 500k xbox's last month in amercia when most of them are free, but your right then. it's not counted as sales then isn't it
Xbox's are free? When the heck did this happen O_O!?
When you purchased a window 7 pc for college from the ms store you got a 360 and your choice of gears forza or fable free
but see, Sony is selling their PS3 discounted with a laptop so that counts as a sale! http://slickdeals.net/perma... ... and when Sony gives away a PS3 with their 3D TV, that is a sale too!
Sony was also giving away free PS3's if you signed on to a shared student smart phone plan at rogers. http://mobilesyrup.com/2011... So did that count as a sale?
I'm suddenly less interested in the bundle now.
No sale for me either, I will just see if there are any good stand alone 3DTV, possibly from other brands. Apocalypse is quite good, but I already have it and I just dont like the way Sony always do stuff like this >.>
I say go for it. They've used Motorstorm for 3D displays alot, Plus it may be better off to have a E10 game Vs. an Mature game in public displays. Its a good Social PR move on their part. People who want resistance will buy resistance
So true. Though at the same time it may have some people avoid the bundle as a whole now because Resistance is taken out. But as you said, this makes sense as a PR move.
It looks less interesting now.
I got the game already.. Guess i gotta gift it to some else :/
or you can just buy a 3d tv that's actually good.
I dont know why so many people are disagreeing? This blows as a 3DTV, it is literally just cheap, that is about its only redeeming feature.
cuz it's being released by sony. it's pretty obvious. if MS released the same product, every sony fanboy on n4g would be saying the nastiest things about it.
Well it looks like I have to buy R3 now
My interest in this bundle has gone down dramatically. I'm sure Motorstorm is a good game, (I have pacific rift) but Resistance 3 is going to move these bundles more. Here's the thing: you need a good split screen game to bundle in here. Motorstorm might be good, but resistance has a good online community and good split screen play, so it would have been the better choice to show off what the tv can do. Maybe they'll let Uncharted 3 be bundled down the line. It's a split screen game, and would be awesome with this tv.
thts shi*y... i pretty much bet this bundle is gonna sell like hotcakes, but to take out a GOTY competitor, and not to mention a game thats gonna be awesome, just blows...
Resistance 3 goty hahahahahahahaahaaaaaahah
this just in im actually startin to think screw this dead... you can buy a 32'' vizio ( i know there not that great but there still decent ) for 478 at walmart... apps. Then you just gotta find and buy some cheap 3d glasses
On the sony 2 ppl can play in 3d @ same time on the same tv & not see each others image..
except that the image actually bleeds over so you have reduced quality for both. not to mention that at least half of gamers have MP experiences exclusive to online, so this TV wouldn't apply to them even if that 2 person mode wasn't poorly implemented.
I thought that if you do that its no longer in 3d right? 3d for one person or non 3d for 2 players.
i got the 42 in vizio and 3d is great and its better than my pops older sony bravia. IT WAS 650 Edit: vizio 3d passive tv comes with 2 glasses. i'm at 4 already. NOTE iMAX glasses don't work you need real 3d ones one app has all naruto and like the last 70 bleach episodes
I threw that deal out to people a long time ago, and got hit with the random disagree monkeys as well. I dont understand how people can not see the value of it. The only thing this bundle has that even teeters the decision is the split screen without splitscreen function. Who knows this could be an update that comes at a later date for all 3d enabled devices. When I get the anniversary/vacation package paid for after september I will be getting that vizio 3dtv and will report back on it.
can do that on the vizio you just need to make the glasses have 2 left lens' and another with 2 right lens'
Need a smaller tv for my bed room. $500 not bad for my 1st 3d with game, glasses & hdmi. I CAN DIG IT.. R3 woulda been much better though, all good since I dont have new motorstorm anyway.
sony i got two words for you "epic fail"
Resistance 3 was the kicker that justified me spending money right now. Seeing as i am definitely getting r3, i am going to wait now on the TV. It may sound strange but in my mind its as if the TV is now $100 more. I guess i wasn't that amped for it and atleast ill save $400 for now. Oh well.
I was looking forward to R3 along with the tv, but motorstorms a fun game so im not to disappointed.
I wonder if they changed it because of the people moaning over the online pass with Resistance 3.
Why would the people potentially buying the 3DTV care?
Makes sense, Motorstorm isn't selling, they made a million copies of the game and they need to get rid of them somehow
This is disappointing for me personally. I already have Motorstorm: Apocalypse. It's a fun game. If you haven't played it and plan on buying this bundle, you'll be pleased. No doubt about it. I wonder if Sony will sell the TV without the game. I don't need two copies of Motorstorm Apocalypse. If not, I guess Apocalypse will make a great birthday present.
I wish the Big 3 would stop pushing all this gimmicky crap and get back to just games. Start of this generation was so promising and it's just ended in motion control and 3d shite.
Sounds like Sony is losing faith in Resistance 3 before it even releases. I think this TV is too small to make a difference in the 3-D market, but now they are killing any chance they had by offering a older game instead of a new one.
MSA looks incredible on a 3D display I viewed it at comets I wish I had a 3DTV, also checked a cinema-view 3DTV but the active shutter glasses gives a far more profound effect
Not a bad move, it is totally a PR move though. Since I don't already have anything in the bundle, it's still a go for me. Just gonna have to shell out the bucks for R3 too. Such is life!
Sounds to me like the Sony/insomniac partnership is breaking down pretty quick.
How would this be any indication of that?
till this day the best game i have played in 3D is Motorstorm Apocalypse no doubt , so i think people will get one if not the best 3D looking game there is when they get the TV one more thing : LUNATICS UNITE !!!!
I hate how Sony announces something, and then decides to change their minds after they make the annoucement. Get your shit together Sony. They do this type of crap all the time
do r3 sony........ooooooooh yeah, cherry filled dog ..kipp terence breifcase
Maybe Motorstorm apocolypse is getting a split screen patch for the thing, good to know more than one game will use it.
sony must have played the R3 beta lmao
For those of you in the United States, just pre-order the bundle from GameStop. It comes with Motorstorm: Apocalypse, but you get Resistance 3 as a bonus now just for the pre-order. So you get everything you would have before, except with both games.
Why not have more then one 3DTV bundle it worked wonders having different console bundles?
