And Sony's need for a good RPG with imagery their home territory can relate to, it's very possible this IS the PS3 game. Sure hope so.

gaffyh4742d ago

This game looks really good, very possibly the PS3 game, the other one (Steel Dog) looks crap.

Bnet3434742d ago

This looks very awesome, but I don't like paying monthly fees for MMO's at $15.

mikeslemonade4741d ago

Unless this unreal engine 3 this game will not look good on the 360. 360 hasn't proven it can handle big enviroments without pop up and frame rate issues. It has no blu-ray, no hdd required installs, and no dedicated servers.

Hate me for saying it, but I feel compelled.

This game looks awfully queer, haha.

Laexerias4742d ago

Split a Lake in two and then say this again.

mistertwoturbo4742d ago

It all seems to be by perspective.

I for one, noticed the extremely hot half naked anime chicks with white underwear and 46 DD's.
