Brink will be released on PS3 across the UK this Friday, as planned - presumably without online multiplayer.
Of course not but I bet the PS3 sales will be dismal.
I am holding off on buying this until the network is back. I would have bought this at gamestop today. Finals week just ended and i sold all my books back. The price will go down by then hopefully.
i work with a guy who said the same. that he would've gotten it but will hold off until the PSN is back up. my point to him, though, was that ranking up in SP transfers across all modes so when he finally gets on my dude is gonna be nuts in comparison lol and i told him i will demand playing it on hard as i do with any co-op game
Day 1 for me lol. I just hope psn isn't down much longer. I think the fact that they made online and offline seamless really helped them with this.
"Who wants to play badly optimised multiplats on the PS3." People who don't have a 360 or PC? Edit: Disagreers, did I O...ffend?
kayla: seriously...leave this place your more annoying because your acting like a fanboy, a sony fanboy, but we all know your an xbox fangirl. so chill out, and do something thats not as annoying as you are now.
look @ MK, it sold better on the ps3 than the 360 version with no psn. but then again shooters biggest selling point is the online multiplayer, then psn suppose to be up by may 31 hopefully the game can survive until then.
Mortal kombat is a bad example since when it was released everyone thought the psn being offline was going to be a matter of hours/days rather than weeks.
@Excalibur... I totally agree. Hell, PS3 owners are almost better waiting to buy this game once the PSN comes up for sure. I bet they may even find it new for a bit cheaper at that time... I say this only becuase this game is HIGHLY geared toward multiplayer.
Yet at the same time everything you do in SP tranfers over to multi. Plus many retailers have deals on this game this week for release (ie Walmart/Kmart) I guess it comes down to how much you want this. Then again the ppl that really want it already preordered it to get the preorder bonus packs.
Actually I'll wait til it goes on sale. Judging by how quickly games like MK, Crysis 2, and Portal 2 dropped in price. It shouldn't be too long. Its shame that these devs are gonna lose money for Sony's fuck up though. Hopefully they get the network back up soon.
No offense but I would be super pissed if they delayed brink because of the PSN bein out thank god thats not the case.
True that man. I would think that the single player would keep people very entertained until the network comes back up.
Hopefully the PSN will be back this week, fingers crossed and everyone can get back to normality and back to fragging n00bs.
At least it isn't online only. Now that would have been a bummer.
true, but one of the main features of this game is an online single player.
Yeah, plus it gives PSN users time to level up and get their characters looking the way they want.
Lol, because being online means that option is taken away from you right?? Ha ha ha. Come on man. Talk about PR pro
Money > character customization and xp
@Max_Dissatisfaction Troll to someone that cares and same go's for the four other people that disagree. Don't be mad when you get beated by a girl on this game.
i wonder how the players who play MAG feel about that
....or Warhawk. *grits teeth*
If this was last year when I was literally addicted to MAG I would have gone crazy. I feel for those players now.
This is why Brink has a massive advantage with the single player to multi-player progression. I'm picking this up for the PC this time, first time i've picked up a PC Shooter in years.
Ya, Im not buying this for my PS3 just yet. Ill wait to see some reviews first. I am really hoping its good though.
PSN users can use bots for the mean time sharpin your skills or beat the single player campaign get trophy's for single player. All I'm sayin is if my Xbox was down I would still find ways to interact with it despite bein offline.
Sony simply just has to hurry up. I wonder what all of the employees are doing who aren't skilled in network reestablishment. Some of the engineers better be doing something to surprise us. Is this just a big vacation for everyones else? Sigh...let's go Sony. I'm waiting for the, "within the week" update for today. :(
Well it's not a online multiplayer only game so why would it be delayed?
Yeah I guess that is true it isn't like Modern Warfare 3 is being released or something.
Sales will suffer
no body likes buying ports. so they should of made it a pc exclusive.
got it on 360 because 1. no psn and who knows when it will be back up 2. Socom 4 came out like week before psn went down and i've hardly had a chance to play that, so most of my psn time will be spent on S4.
