It's amazing that this game is still going. I played it for 3 months after launch, and was done with it at that point. I love tactical team gameplay, but this game just got boring really quick. Conversely, I still play Rainbow Six Vegas 2 once in a while, and that game came out in 2008.

Played Rainbow Six 3 last month. Still miss it's chilling sudden death tension.

PapaBop482d ago (Edited 482d ago )

Raven Shield? That heartbeat sensor down to the last person on both teams, I miss that sort of tension in multiplayer shooters.

TheColbertinator482d ago


Yes indeed. One mistake and you die. Two mistakes and your squad dies.

Father__Merrin483d ago

I'm doing a play through of Vegas 2 classic

Yui_Suzumiya483d ago

I wish they'd do another Vegas game 😁

MasterChief3624482d ago

I played it a little bit and had fun, but it's suffering from what I call Overwatch Syndrome, where it's hard to have fun with it as a casual player or play with a "favorite" character now. It puts you at risk for being castigated.

Looking to join a team. I'm in New York, been playing for 3 years and want to play with people who know how to be a working team. Add me no1plugin on psn

I am hoping they return the series back to the SP and coop campaigns of the 360 and OG Xbox games which I am still playing today.

Yeah but what about something more like Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield or a new Rainbow Six Vegas

Can't really just continue to update this over and over, you need to swap between something to keep iotfresh.

harmny483d ago (Edited 483d ago )

You can't? Tell that to counter strike or dota

Mystogan483d ago

They will probably make a new rainbow six. Just not a sequel to siege. Meaning something completely different.

Hungryalpaca482d ago (Edited 482d ago )

Ain’t gonna happen. Rainbow 6 went from a realistic, tactical semi simulation of terrorist encounters to a storefront for goofy cosmetics with semi realistic gun play against people dressed as clowns.

OneEyedSteve483d ago

Well obviously it is seen as though they are backwards compatible, duh.

WickedLester483d ago

Yeah with BC for PS5 and Xbox 2, it seems silly to bring out all new versions of these current gen games. Why not just release patches for those games instead and avoid the confusion?

OpenGL483d ago

Hopefully developers can implement PS5 enhancement patches for PS4 games like they do with the Pro.

SilverDemon483d ago

Games should be remastered with free patch (like how borderlands handsome collection got 4k patch for the pro/x)

Pc been getting for update to the remastered versions of games. Why not console?

KwietStorm483d ago

The Handsome Collection is the remaster. Those games didn't come out this generation. The patch you're talking about was just hi res textures. PC has been able to handle such assets for years. Consoles are just now getting to that point.

SilverDemon483d ago

@kwietStorm comment wasn't about wether the can handle it or not. It's about the fact they shouldn't charge for it.
The 4k texture patch was released on pc,x1 &ps4 at the same time so pc player didn't have(official) 4k texture before. my point is, they shouldn't charge for higher rez texture and call it remaster (or just unlocking framrate )if the the console can play the game natively

Take skyrim for example
It got a remaster but the pc player got it as a free update (higher texture, lighting,etc..) next gen console player should pay for "remasters" but the devs simply release a patch to enhance the last gen version (ps4 x1 versions) just like how pc player are treated

mkis007483d ago

Vanilla Skyrim never released on ps4 and xb1. Xb1 had bc but thats very different from an enhanced game.

SilverDemon483d ago

That my point.
Next gen will be backward compatible so charging for updates shouldn't happen again

KwietStorm483d ago

"my point is, they shouldn't charge for higher rez texture and call it remaster"

And my point is they never did. The remaster, The Handsome Collection, was already out. The texture pack is independent of that release. The game was already remastered. The texture pack is not what made the game a remaster. That didn't even come out until recently. The Handsome Collection came out a few years ago

SilverDemon482d ago

Never did? Sure
But what makes you think they won't?
Nowadays you should put anything past those publishers

I would err on the side of caution with that request. My thinking is that, since PS4 games wouldn't ship with PS5 patches, it's going to consume more HDD space. If there's a natural enhancement aspect (e.g., upscaling, frame rate enhancement, or ray tracing), cool, but I think that could be disastrous for HDD space early on.

SixFragz483d ago (Edited 483d ago )

Can you imagine this game on next gen hardware?

For a single release, live service supported game, it's astonishing how strong this game is currently going. It's only going to get bigger and better on next gen.

Unlike some games (*cough* Call of Dookie *cough*) that have to release every single year, without a single shred of innovation, just to remain relevant.

Rainbow Six is one badass game. Looking forward to its future.

Lightbullz483d ago

It is pretty easy to imagine, just look at how the game is on PC.

Hungryalpaca483d ago

It’s will look like the Pc version.

SixFragz483d ago

I think I triggered the Call of Dookie fanboys


KwietStorm483d ago

You're not even making sense.

Snookies12482d ago (Edited 482d ago )

As someone that has really disliked Call of Duty in the past. At least they seem to be headed in the right direction with their reboot. I'm far from a fan of the series, but have to give credit where it's due. Don't just blindly keep hating a series if you haven't looked into anything regarding it's newest iteration.

Hungryalpaca482d ago

You’re a really sad individual
