Is it sad that I own the three games, but want to buy this for the box?
Ilovetheps4  +   1073d ago
I'm kind of the same way. I own all 3 games but for some odd reason I still want the collection.
ABizzel1  +   1073d ago
It should be $40

Hopefully I'm wrong, but this is very likely going to be half-assed as hell with no R:FoM trophies, not have all the DLC on the disks, and will very likely be the ugly yellow Platinum Hits versions.

This is what the Trilogy should be and deserves to be:

Resistance: Fall of Man - [Trophy support - All DLC (map packs, etc.) - All bonus content (Cloven skin, etc.)]

Resistance 2 - 'Reflection' box art (from Collector's and European editions) - All DLC and bonus content (map packs, skins, etc.)]

Resistance 3 - [New interior art that is consistent with the first two games - All DLC - All preorder and Global Resistance bonus content; skins, air-fuel grenades, etc.]

MSRP: $59.99
Release: TBA (Late 2012 - 2013)

Consistent spine art to look more like a trilogy and use of the new PS3 box art template instead R:FoM and R2's old red ones (on US versions, not sure about other regions).


Next game:
[PS4] Resistance: The Angry Night - 'origins' prequel set in Russia / eastern Europe.

I also have the same issue. I have all 3 games, but I would like to own the trilogy.
MAJ0R  +   1072d ago
If it really ends up being $80 in the U.S. then that's a complete rip off.
Controversy  +   1072d ago
This is a damn good bundle. Seriously, if you don't already have these games, don't miss out.
LUCKYXS7LEVEN  +   1072d ago
i liked the capelli body walking towards new york to be the cover art
waltyftm  +   1073d ago
No, what is sad is that i own none of them, and will have to get this.
pandaboy  +   1073d ago
don't bother, it's really not worth your time.

Very good games. It is worth your time.

pretty good games, with the second game being the low point of the series.
sikbeta  +   1072d ago
IMO half worth, half doesn't because:

R:FOM >> R3 >>>> R2

But judge by yourself :D
NastyLeftHook0  +   1072d ago
its worth your time.
MrDead  +   1073d ago
No it's not sad. Viva la Resistance!
KUV1977  +   1073d ago
I totally feel the same way, but they will probably have the ugly platinum versions of the regular games in that box, like they did with God of War, and unlike the US-greatest-Hits-Covers they are really atrocious.

I am, however, looking forward to Resistance Burning skies soon...

Buy games, put the regular games into the box, sell other copies/give to friends....

Again, sad. :D
NeoBasch  +   1073d ago
I have an excuse to repurchase the games. Someone broke into my house last year and made off with my original PS3 slim and Resistance 1 and 2. I hope SCEA releases this here in America too, and hopefully none of the greatest hits versions are included. If so, I'll have to hunt down the originals.
aviator189  +   1073d ago
NOPE, that box art looks incredible.
Rynx  +   1073d ago
All I really want is a trophy patch for FoM, so I can play it again, co-op with my brother and call it a day.
Bobby Kotex  +   1072d ago
Is it sad I've never played a Resistance game? I feel like this box is for me.
Relientk77  +   1072d ago
Nothing wrong with being a fan, and buying the collection
ngecenk  +   1072d ago
Fake box art. This fan art has been existed since kz2.i hd it on my hdd already
edwineverready  +   1073d ago
Hope they bring out the resistance psp on the vita.
Skate-AK  +   1073d ago
I doubt it but they did add right stick support instead of having to use the face buttons.
KUV1977  +   1073d ago
You mean the old PSP-title supports dual-analog-sticks on VITA? Like really or just as a mediocre mapping of face buttons to stick?
cpayne93  +   1073d ago
Yeah can you aim in more than 8 directions for psp shooters on Vita?
TheMrMadzen  +   1072d ago
The game plays amazing on the Vita!
torchic  +   1073d ago
I hope there's an Uncharted trilogy pretty soon!

but very glad I held up on buying R3. I will definitely buy this

And there you go:
Skate-AK  +   1073d ago
You can tell its the same artist that did the R3 box art. I wonder if it will be all on one disc?
ZeroChaos  +   1073d ago
I hope they add trophies to R:FoM but I doubt it :(
Skate-AK  +   1073d ago
I wish they would but I doubt they ever will. Back when they released the dual pack of 1&2 they said it would be counter productive to go through old code to implement a trophy system.
ZeroChaos  +   1073d ago
Very true but Insomniac don't own the IP anymore. So Sony could themselves patch it in now.
enkeixpress  +   1073d ago
They should port this over to PS Vita as well.. it'd be a system seller, for sure.
kaveti6616  +   1073d ago
I think they should focus on creating new IPs for the vita.
IRetrouk  +   1072d ago
We need a mix of old established franchises and new ips for the vita, not one or the other

I already beat all 3 Resistance games countless times. Maybe I'll just buy the box seperate since it looks cool. I'm that much of a Resistance fan lol

Such an underrated series. Its my favourite gaming series this generation. I highly recommend it if you're tired of the same old military FPS shooters these days. The Resistance series sets itself apart with its unique story, setting and best of all "gameplay."
ExCest  +   1073d ago
That's a great looking box art. I loved the R3 one and this one might even be better. I mean, they even changed the color of the PS3 logo to match the box. 'Tis a shame that I don't want to buy it.
turgore  +   1073d ago
resistance 1 aged terribly, resistance 2 wasnt very good (i own it) so the only worthwhile one is resistance 3.

I played the first and second.
The first has indeed aged poorly. It feels like a PS2 game. Presentation is generic, controls are stiff and aim down sights is a toggle. The level design is very uneven, you have some decent open sections, and then some awfully mundane corridors.
Setpieces are not very impressive. Technically it's not that good, even for a launch title.

The second one was also not too original, but level design, while linear, was generally very well paced, except maybe for some spaceship sections. It however lacked the better setpieces of the first. But it had a very spectacular coop mode. The ending was also decent. All in all it was a nice little game.

I've not played the 3rd. Again, the characters and story looked generic. At least a few fights looked a bit open ended so that piqued my interest somewhat, but it still looked very corridor-like most of the time in the walkthrough I watched.

As for the comparison with Halo, Halo has its issues like copy paste level design, and obvious padding through backtracking. But the AI, the scope of the battles, freeform use of vehicles makes it far better than the 2 Resistances I played. The characters, heroes and villains alike (except maybe in Reach where the main ones aren't there), have way more personality than in Resistance.

Honnestly, the PS3 doesn't have truly top of the line exclusive shooters unless you count Uncharted as a shooter.
If you're looking for the best solo FPS you can get on the PS3, go with Crysis 2.
Story is not very good, but it has a few cool cinematic moments, lots of freedom of action, vehicles... That's the most complete package there is at this time.

Oddly, the third is the best. It reminds me more of Half-Life 2 than anything and, I maintain, if more FPS games were like Half-Life 2 the world would be a better place.
theeg  +   1072d ago
resistance 3 is the worst looking of all to me, horribly sub hd (it is actually 976x540p) covered in awful jaggies, the framerate sucks and the textures are muddy and terrible, i think part 2, looks and controls the best, but thats me

i think part 1 is the best game of the series by far and has the best story and multiplayer.

arbitor365  +   1073d ago
I was kinda hoping the box would have both Hale and Capelli.....
arbitor365  +   1073d ago
i have the perfect idea. I will buy this and then sell my current copies to my brother. so it will only cost me 20$ or so
TheSoiledKnight  +   1073d ago
now thats a great looking box set, it'll be great for people like me who were a little skeptical on the franchise before to pick up the whole set at a great price before Resistance 4 comes out ;)
tiffac008  +   1072d ago
Aww crap I just bought 1 & 2... @_@
chobit_A5HL3Y  +   1072d ago
so did i XP i got them with a controller bundle at x-mas and then the 3rd one was on sale at best buy 2 weeks ago for $20 XP
masa2009  +   1072d ago
I've seen the similar Uncharted The Trilogy in store, and it's just a flimsy light cardboard box, like the one for cereal boxes, with standard Platinum editions of the first two games, and a normal copy of the third.

So I have good reason to believe this will be the same for this one.
So my advice, if you own the games, even if you're a fan, DO NOT buy them again in that format.
All you are getting is 10 cents worth of cardboard.
It does not even improve the presentation of the games in any meaningful way.
Jag-T1000  +   1072d ago
Maybe it'll sell this time!
Raoh  +   1072d ago
I'll trade in my current copies for a trilogy set.

But the lack of trophies in Fall of Man mean no immediate replay. This will mostly be to make my game shelf look nicer.
Knushwood Butt  +   1072d ago
Love that artwork.

For me:

R1 > R2 > R3.

Played the first two games a ton, both online and off. Beat R3 on my own, then in co-op, then maybe on my own again. Played it online for about 30 minutes, then sold it.
Drekken  +   1072d ago
R2>R3>R1 for me. I liked them all though.
Knushwood Butt  +   1072d ago
That's cool.

I don't understand all the hate that R2 got. Sure, the graphic style was maybe a bit too cartoony (?), but the 1P had some great set pieces and atmosphere, and the online is still possibly the most ambitious out there, and I think they pulled it off too. Coop and competitive were both a blast. I platted the game so got the 10,000 kills trophy...
Der_Kommandant  +   1072d ago
Amazing artwork
chukamachine  +   1072d ago
Unless you don't have the games, why on earth would you buy them again.

I have all 3 games.

Why do people give a toss about boxes,lol.
aDDicteD  +   1072d ago
might get this trilogy, haven't played the third one yet
Relientk77  +   1072d ago
Oh is this only for Europe :-/
PLAYER5095  +   1072d ago
looks koo. i finally bought resistance 3 on amazon for 28bux yesterday its gonna arrive today so cant wait to join the resistance against the f*ckin chimera!
nathanhale  +   1072d ago
They shouldn't have killed me off in the Resistance 2 :(
Drainage  +   1072d ago
not worth it. R:FOM was the best but only for the Online, which is probably dead now.
Knushwood Butt  +   1072d ago
Does anyone actually play Resistance 3 online? After R2, and after putting a ton of time into Killzone 3's online, I just found R3's online tedious.
