No FPS on any CONSOLE boasts what Resistence 2 brings to the table.

MGS4 will do fine. Killzone 2 has to seriously impress in all areas.

EDIT: Update

-One campaign focusing on Nathan Hale across USA, 1 player
-One separate story based campaign supporting 2 players offline, 8 players Online
-Online Multiplayer (dedicated servers) supporting 60 people
-Classes for online: Heavy, Special Ops, Medic
-New vehicles including Chameleon (Stalker with cloak)
-Partial randomized geometry in level spots
-Insane stat tracking coupled with MyResistance.net

i stand a bit skeptic about the source. But if it's true then KillZone 2 and HAZE can go to hell. Resistance 2 all the freakin way.

rofldings3544d ago

"EDIT 9: Partially randomized geometry... levels are different with each playthrough"

:O

riqued3544d ago

Insomanic is awesome!!!!

Resistance 2 >>> Killzone 2 FTW!!!

THX71683544d ago

Technically you are correct in saying that no FPS on any "console" boasts what Resistance 2 brings to the table. For those that consider the PC to be a console, though, there is Serious Sam 2 which had 16 player Co-Op.

4 player Co-Op is awesome. 8 player Co-Op is f*cking amazing!

This game is boring and generic at best. If we continue to praise mediocrity than thats all we will get in the future. GOTY? Get the fvck outta here. Some people are way to quick to praise anything that comes out on PS3 as the game of all games. Give it a rest and let the game speak for itself. If this is the best I can expect from my PS3 than I am not impressed at all.

Skerj3544d ago

@PS3n360 I thought that too until you get to about a 3rd of the way in. Then it just never lets go, some of the battles get so freaking epic.

barom3544d ago

It might be true that the more players the more boring it might seem for you and possibly a good amount of gamers in general. However, this is merely saying that it's possible to play 60 MP. You DON'T have to play 60 players.

Regarding co-op, again it's all about possibilities. You DON'T have to play co-op. But the possibility of having 8 co-op is a rare feat and does not harm the game in any way.

Same thing with replayability. Except that there is a good amount of players who like to play campaign mode. It wasn't that long ago that online gaming became big on consoles you know.

And onto the fanboyism, it sure feels like you trying very hard to shed some negativity in all this positive news for PS3 gamers (or maybe gamers in general, one word: competition). Still I'm not gonna call you an xbot or anything. Since you might just be a negative person in general. But all of these features does not hurt the way YOU play your games in any way. All of these feats are OPTIONAL.

Keowrath3544d ago

@PS3n360 I agree with Skerj, I heard about Resistance when I got my PS3 but didn't purchase it at the time. People were saying it looks very dull and very generic. A few months went by and I decided to try the demo on the PSN and that gives you 2 very cool levels to play with. Eventually I caved and decided to get a cheap copy of it on Ebay. The game begins very slowly, very dull and very generic and then the cooler levels start to come into play after which it never seems to let up until the end.

@TheSadTruth I'm not a huge player of online unless it's an MMORPG like EQ2, I've not once played a game of Resistance online... Yet. But I played through it 2 player co-op and loved every minute of it (Apart from the uncannily well placed grenades by my girlfriend =/) I'll be going through R2 again co-op and probably try out the 8 player co-op online but it's not what I'll be buying R2 for. It does actually have a pretty cool story but more importantly some of the levels in the first one are just damn good fun to play and me and my mates have put many hours into the same levels because the level design is excellent.

Resistance1 was a great game and Resistance2 sounds awesome.

marinelife93544d ago

Are you freakin kidding me!? 30 on 30 matches??!! It's going to be a WAR!

sonarus3544d ago

what else do you want. with all the killer already announced games for sony they are still announcing potential trippla A games while msoft is mum... yr has jst begun but sony is coming very strong

TheSadTruth3544d ago

@1.8

Press CTRL + F and then type in "xbox" or "halo" and see how much "negativity" ps3 fans are unleashing, then get back to me

I'm just a realist. The first Resistance was extremely mediocre, and yes I played the entire thing and I'm sure the next one will be too. If Insomniac proves me wrong then that would be nice because I'd like to have something to play on my roommate's PS3.

ps3playbeyon3544d ago

DAMMNNN IM SO FREAKIN EXITED BOUT THIS GAME IT AIN'T EVEN FUNNY...THE FIRST ONE WAS AMAZIN...AND THEN THIS ONE WIT 6O PLAYER ONLINE MATCHES N 2 CAMPAIGN MODES WOW....N IT'S INSOMNIAC MAKING THE GAME SO U KNOW IT'S GANNA BE GOOD..NO WAIT MORE LIKE EPIC!!!!

tony3543d ago

ghost recon has something like that on coop.

Sevir043543d ago

people this is what happens when a dev gets absolutely no sleep whats so ever. you are able to crank out AAA games year after year on time, november 06 insomniac crunched and spat out the PS3's primeir FPS Resistance and killed just about every launch game released on the PS3, and a majority of the games release on the 360 graphicly... October 2007 They did it again but also reaching unseen levels of graphic quality with the criticly acclaimed Ratchet:TOD giving players for the first time PIXAR graphics and fun play and humor a feat only achievable by Disney with it's pixar movies.... and now

2008 we get a glimpse of whats next and Resistance 2 blows us out of the water with alpha screens, with more than 8 months left before dev time finishes, and we have 60 player online death matches, vehicles, 8 Fuking PLAYER CO-op.... WTF, thats unheard of 4 player co-op was astounding for a console game but 8 is just unsound. 8 players online is the max for the 360's best looking game Gears and it choked, and we are getting 8 player co-op, this must mean the game is gonna be hard as hell, 2 different campaign stories, and it's running at Sixty frames per second. thats just astounding i bet they are gonna kill us all when GDC 08 shows up. both KZ2 and R2 are gonna be fighting for supremacy as top gun for the PS3 this year... Damn This just killed my hype for MGS4....

Go you sleepless devs Go... OMG i cant believe that i own a PS3, 60 player online 8 player co-op.... too much

my head just exploded... 11 days into 2008 and all this Blu ray triumph and ps3 good news... if this is just the begininhg of 08 what else will we here next month at GDC 08... now i wanna see motorstorm 2. my GOSH this is amazing ...

neogeo3543d ago

2 biggest FPSes of 2008 ----KZ2 and RESISTANCE being PS3 exclusive

OMFGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG G

@ the XTARD above

RESISTANCE has sold over 3m copies ( well ofcourse not according to VGCHARTZ but according to GFK,NPD and MEDIACRATE)

RESISTANCE still appears among the top selling games in all regions of EU including FRANCE

www.micromania.fr

RESISTANCE is outselling any x360 game in EU regions. In the MIDDLE EAST it is the no1 selling game on consoles

RESISTANCE will easily sell 5 million copies. RESISTANCE 2 however will easily top 10m

when RESISTANCE 2 is launched PS3 would have a userbase of around 22/25m units

expect KZ2 to sell in excess of 10m in its lifetime as well

same goes to GT5,MGS4 and FF13

jujunogo3544d ago (Edited 3544d ago )

FunnyBone3544d ago (Edited 3544d ago )

Dude how old are you??? 8 .... That is one of the most childish post I have seen in the comment section(And thats pretty bad) Maybe you should just stop gaming and learn to grow the F up.....It's FanRiods like you that are a pain in the ass of N4G....

Wow 2008 Year of the Fanroids....

Seems like the Sony side has kicked it up a notch since the New Year...

(Yes Sony)-Alot of stories latly that talk anything about the 360 in a negative or positive way all of a sudden have an influx of Sony Driods going into the comment section and posting in mass, phantom disagrees,Trying to start a flame war by saying" Come on waiting for the Xbots to try and defend themselves,Where is TheMart,Bladestar...Just looking to start a flame war...I am not siding with 360 it's just from my view it's Sony Driods..You have your Zhuk's and Bladstars and Themart but damn the list I would have to make for Sony Droids (It would be too damn long)...

Kids grow up.How can you call yourself a TRUE GAMER if you are limiting yourself to ONE console...I just cant figure that one out...
This site is going to / already is going to Shat because of all the little kids thinking their important because they can comment then have all there other fanriods agree and make themselves feel good...

Wow since 2008 my ignore button is getting alot of use....

Ok so I talked bad about the Sony Driods.Go on that disagree button looks to damn tempting...(Losers)

Edit-Damn got me side tracked...I never played RFOM have yet to rent it but damn this looks pretty intresting..I love co-op,60 players in a game..Seems a little overload...The Co-Op has me ready to purchase this game thou...

even after ripping people with 300k OUTDATED HD DVD addons ---a few XTARDS like you still support MS

you have an HD DVD addon.. You just dont want to reveal it cuz you are ashamed now

m91058263544d ago

actually, if you care to pull your head out of your @ss for 5 minutes, you could see that an Insomniac dev has confirmed all of this...

Daishi3544d ago

If Blackhawk Down had 50 players in MP on the ORIGINAL XBOX then how hard is it to believe this has 60mp?

athlon7703544d ago

He has his head in the sand and his a$$ in the air and hoping it was a Jane and not a John that just patted him.

You really can't blaim the PS3 haters out there though, in fact you should feel sorry for them. They have their head so deep in the sand that they are missing out on some great games.

Dual storylines, Co-op, massive multiplayer, random generated playing fields, yeah, this is going to be a great title all running at 60fps. I hope they keep their collective eyes on the ball here and not let anything drop.

Cool, very cool indeed!

RESISTANCE 2

I just got my latest GameInformer and its cover feature is Resistance 2!!!!!!

Checking it out now... will update. (didn't see this on first two pages so assumed it hasn't been posted)

EDIT 1: HUGE cooperative game... EIGHT-PLAYER story-driven campaign along side single-player campaign. SIXTY-PLAYER Competitive modes... HUGE United States Landscapes as backdrops.

EDIT 2: "It is, in short, a tour de force for the untapped might of the PlayStation 3"

EDIT 3: Narrative stays with Hale the whole time... not Rachel. Hale shot down in Iceland, escapes to US and becomes part of program called Sentinels...

EDIT 4: Chameleon.. Stalker with total cloaking ability

EDIT 5: Overcoming stigma that boss encounters don't work in FPS games..

EDIT 6: Eight player coop over PSN, two player local

EDIT 7: CLASSES! Unique character with one of three basic templates... tank with heavy weaponry, special ops for distance (bullseye modified with zoom), medic

I'm READING FAST!

http://boards.ign.com/ps3_g...

I cant make my own thread, stupid gaf mods., someone make a thread!

EDIT 8: Online matching... standard difficulty discarded for scaled challenges for team skill..

EDIT 9: Partially randomized geometry... levels are different with each playthrough

EDIT 10: again... 60 players online. want sense of epic b attle.. dont want fast-furious gameplay to be focus, more focused on squad v squad.

EDIT 11: will log into smaller four-to-eight man lobbies for each squad... encouraging communication and camaraderie, squad will be tasked witha particular objective. careful level design aims to deliver intense combat zones or small team conflicts that flow within arena of larger battle.

EDIT 12: Dedicated gaming community with stat servers for faster matchmaching than any console game of 2007. full-featured profile pages through myresistance.net will incorporate social networking concepts. open clan and party system to encourage community...no player invites needed.

EDIT 13: Aiming to deliver mobile-phone-quality sound.

EDIT 13: Aiming to deliver mobile-phone-quality sound.

EDIT 14: Futher tapped power of PS3... more enemies onscreen, better AI, better lighting and shaders (SCREENSHOTS LOOK AMAZING!!!). More comples normal mapping and detail mapping combine to deliver textures that look amazing from afar and at extremely close distances.

EDIT 15: AI getting a lot more attention.. will scaled on-the-fly to players perspective and viewpoint... aka enemies cloesr to the player will actually have more spohisicated AI routines than those further away. assailants in your direct field of view received heightened intelligence. easily more cunning than before

sorry for typos... typing fast

EDIT 16: listened to complaints... working on solution to long checkpoints and health system. not positive what final solution will be.

EDIT 17: "Our time playing was a blast"... each character class contributes in a unique way and "we loved the strategy-laden medic"... unique sense of teamwork

EDIT 18: Mysterious "Cloven"

EDIT 19: "Resistance 2 will be too epic to dismiss as anything but one of the biggest, boldest, and most high-reaching titles of 2008. It's a game that won't be ignored." [END ARTICLE]

RELEASE: FALL 2008

I summation i'm so happy! Bubbles for everyone

HERE ARE THE PICS!!!!

bootsielon3544d ago

Oh man, this is gonna be better than Killzone 2... and it has a better pedigree than killzone 2, too.

rofldings3544d ago

Where are the screenshots man?

MetalProxy3544d ago

Why in the world are we compairing to a game not even out?(KZ2) I think this will destroy Halo3.

Bonsai12143544d ago (Edited 3544d ago )

this game is looking great!! and in 08 too. insomniac definitely is on the verge of becoming a legendary developer. 1 top notch game a year. fantastic

however, i'm not a big fan of the classes multiplayer style. thats why i never got into team fortress 1 or 2.

maybe they'll have another church scene (maybe in texas?) that gets sony sued.. lol i can see it happening, cause the game takes place in the midwest/south right?

Skerj3544d ago

OMFG THAT IS AWESOME!! Ok sorry excitement level down to normal. OMG greatest console FPS in the works EVER. KillZone 2 has some HEAVY Resistance.

krik3544d ago

@Relcom bubbles for you. Nice job.

The features are just amazing... but its Insomniac. We know they can do it ;)

Keowrath3544d ago

Agreed, Bubbles Relcom.
