Should More Games Follow the Multiplayer Model set by Killzone 3?

OnlySP.com: The split between multiplayer based gamers and gamers who enjoy playing alone is becoming a wider and wider gap each year as the online community of gamers continues to grow.

The story is too old to be commented.

Maybe not from the get-go but when numbers of players online start to dip, it might be a good idea to revitalise the online community and make some more money out of the game by getting players who would never have tried it out if it weren't free.

I would love if other developers followed in there foot steps i mean i have no interest in Killzone 3's singleplayer so to be able to buy the Multiplayer for $15 buck thats Perfect! I wish COD or BF would do the same.

Technically, you could - just buy used.

I'm not super COD-hating fanboy, but there really isn't all that much difference from COD4 to MW2, [email protected] to BOs etc.

BF is unique because there hasn't been a "numbered" BF on consoles (Modern Combat was a terrible port) to compare it to, and Bad Company was a decent spin off (and was still fun).

I like the model that KZ has used, but even with that model, I still only find myself playing 3v3 games

I already had the disc version and platinumed it. For me Killzone 3 is the best online shooter. However after excessively playing it it gave way to other games and while I wanted to play a round from time to time I was to lazy to switch discs just for an hour or two. With the PLUS-rebate i bought the multiplayer and played two hours and what fun it was. Servers are full again and now that it's on my hard disc I look forward to play a round every now and then.

Also it has it's own platinum trophy. While I wouldn't have bought it just for trophies it is a nice plus.

I am in the exact same boat. Having it on the hard drive is perfect. I can get a few Warzones in after playing another game without having to switch the disc.

Every gamer needs their FPS fix and this was perfect for me!

Hmm - if I own the game, would my stats "update" once I put the disc in, or would those above the level cap just never count? Do you know?

I think they should, I mean in my opinion games like bf3 and cod have crap sp. but their online are good. In essence your paying full retail to play mp. I would welcome games ala carte.

I hate Killzone's lobby though. I can't even tell what rank everyone is. That annoys me.
