Resistance 2 did have its own special. Just like Little Big PLanet and Fable 2.

"@reagenyour125

Yes, Halo 3 sold real well but it was considered a big disappointment by most people who bought it so the hype is over."

Where does this "fact" come from? Do you just assume based on the ranvings of your fellow PS3 fan club members?

I happen to know of many people who think Halo 3 is the best game of 2007, and one of the best games ever made. Here's a few others who have a high opinion of Halo 3:

O.K., 600,000. That's still piss poor for 8 million copies sold. And don't go making excuses, Halo is Halo"

600,000 in the past day. And what, FPS = RTS? How is it possible to be so fracking stupid?

Posted by Thundercracker - Sunday, November 02, 2008 6:54 AM
@rrod

your point of which system sells more is bs. You said would a mother buy a 200 dollar xbox or a 400 dollar ps3. What you arent realizing is that the ps3 has sold more per month on average since release than the xbox has, so your point is moot.

They just started earlier, so they have an advantage in total sales....not that sales matter

Posted by Whiteaura1 - Saturday, November 01, 2008 7:37 PM
Seriously, i hav eplayed gears 1, i have played and beat Resistance 1,

both games have their pros and cons, but i guess in my own opinion i got into gears more, maybe fore different people they see it differently, idk.

in all honesty R2 and GoW2 are 2 different games.. different types and different play styles, so i guess .. you either like 3rd person or 1st person, you either like tatical combat or just simple run in and shoot, like unreal or COD style,

personally i never was into shooters that much.. the games i would only ever play that was a shooter was first person shooters, and i guess gears brought out a different way of team styled shooting.

and dont compare gears 2 to gears 1, they are not the same game, gears 2 is improved , has much more to offer, and graphically looks amazing, in my honest opinion, GoW 2 looks graphically better then R2, but i guess its only the beta for R2, so they could improve it

Posted by AIFRANCHISE - Saturday, November 01, 2008 5:21 PM
i see more ps3 fanboys than xbox 360 owners U kids need lifes. Go commenting on resistance 2 or Find something better to do than comparing Gow1 to Gow2 cause i know u never played the first.

RROD wow dude u have no lige u just wait for this information to get posted up so u can make the first comment and try to diss the xbox seriously get a life man

Posted by Whiteaura1 - Saturday, November 01, 2008 10:33 AM
i only got 2 things to say,

1. if resistance RROD was just as big as gears, it would have its own special world premiere :D

2. Halo.. isn't that great, so why are you using it as the basis of an argument? I'd play gears over Halo anyday, the origonal halo was the best, because it brought out a new world, and by the time u get to a trilogy, you really need to shnazz it up in order for it to be consistant,

i say 600,000 people constantly all day long (people have lives ya know) is pretty good for an online game and of course when a game is released its going to sell a lot of copies, people play the game, if they like it , great they keep it, if they dont they sell it or trade in, why assume that all 8 million people still play halo 3? i bet not every MGS4 player is still playing it, im sure some have moved on to different games etc.

:P we shall see if R2 really is that great.. CODWW looks better then R2.. to be honest.. =\

(codww isn't at all that great lolz)

Well, team based games is a similarity so Lol on me. =D

Posted by MaxDragon7 - Friday, October 31, 2008 11:33 PM
@Reaganyouth
I agree that Gears and Resistance are way different, but there really are no similarities! Really, if you think about it, it's very hard to compare R2 to Gears 2. 60 players is for team based games, but Gears is already team based. (basically because of how the combat system function, you need to rely on teamwork.) Well, there are more differences I won't go into, the list goes on, but I hope people enjoy Gears 2 (they will, a LOT!). Oh and whats up with the news on Gears 3? It was shown on X-Play before...

Posted by newbman - Friday, October 31, 2008 10:02 PM
RROD

I just want to make this clear when halo came out in 2001, it was the game that defined shooters, halo 3 was more like halo 1, I personally like it, because halo 2 went to far away and halo 3 was more like the first one. 600,000 out of 8 million, come on man you know the facts, how many of those people play online every day? Probably the nerds and the 12 year old kids who just got into puberty. Look all I am saying is that those people play different games every day like i do, I played halo 3 yesterday, and I play Dead Space today. I am surprised you said you like one xbox game (Gears), but the fact that your bashing it doesn't make any sense. Halo defined the shooter, and Resistence 2 is probably going to be the same as Resistence 1, for all the same reasons why you said gears 2 is the same as the first.

You failed again.Your comment on Halo 3 selling 8 million copies but only has a couple thousand is wrong.in the last 24 hours just team slayer their were over 50 thousand people playing.And their are over dozen more game types to play.

P.S why are you Ps fanboys on a 360 message board?No lives but i cant balme you since theres nothing left for your ps3 to do.

@RROD
No they will charge Konami for making multipul disks resulting in royalty fees. iD Software said this would be a problem for developers and can hurt the quality of MS games. John Carmac said it would hurt the quality of Doom 4 and Rage.

Ehh, Gears of War looks meh.

Posted by xBlaCkBiRdx02 - Friday, October 31, 2008 4:57 PM
@RROD

True.. I have pretty much notice that lately. Like all the games that are multiplatform usually debut better on Xbox 360 or the devs show it off more on the 360 than the Ps3 which to me is crap, which shows that they are mostly on 360 and the devs that made fallout 3 dont want to be major Sellouts to the console they like the most.. this is just my opionion...

RROD :) :)

People can hate all they want. You know deep down you want to play gears of war 2. So why not? its affordable just $199 and to the cost of the game...

FYI I have both PS3 and Xbox360 and they both have their strengths so hate on... I love it.

@RedRingOfDeath,

I'll confirm it for you. You don't work for G4.

Posted by RedRingOfDeath - Friday, October 31, 2008 3:47 PM
@blackbird02

Also, if you guys get MGS4(which I seriously doubt you will) look at the quality of it compared to the PS3 version. Konami use the power and space of the PS3 to make that game and you will see a big difference in an Xbox version. Not to mention that it would be on 6 or 7 discs. Somebody has to eat the cost of those multiple DVD discs and it won't be the consumer or Konami. It will have to be M$. Heck, they make over a Billion dollars a year just charging you guys to play games online so they can afford it.

Posted by RedRingOfDeath - Friday, October 31, 2008 3:40 PM
@xBlackBirdx02

Like I said, you know that the dev just didn't put the same effort into the PS3 version as they did the Xbox version. I know that the PS3 is harder to work with than the Xbot but this is no excuse. I think you knew that already and I fell for your trap.

Posted by xBlaCkBiRdx02 - Friday, October 31, 2008 3:28 PM
@RROD

I know you say that the PS3 is more powerful which it is, and you say that probaly the 360 version of MGS4 (if there is going to be) might not get a perfect 10, but if the Ps3 is more powerful how come in Fallout 3, the Ps3 version did not get the same praise as the Pc or Xbox 360 version?!?! Just saying...

Posted by GhostMLD - Friday, October 31, 2008 3:06 PM
this game will be awsome whether u guys like it or not.

like 2006, it will kick Resistences butt at retail.

The truth is I think Gears is a great game. I played the first one and loved it. I'm just having fun seeing you guys get all bent out of shape. You know what I'm doing yet you all fall for it every time. I'll admit, I would love to have Gears but I don't like Halo 3. I think that is the most overrated game in history.

Halo came out a year ago, those are still excellent numbers considering the number of games that have come out since.....not too savy with buisness models are you?
And the halo is halo agrument. Just plain stupid. I'm an avid halo fan, that said I have NO interest in playing ANY KIND of "real-time strategy game," my nerdom his its boundries....and I'm sure there are many out there that feel the same way.....

Wow you really need to come up with a valid point....c

Owell I can understand why ps3 owners dont like gears 2 and wont when it comes out. Do you think it is a coincidence....THEY OWN THE OTHER SYTSTEM....ill be the first to admit that I loved MGS4(and sold playstation 3 after i beat it and watched e3 and GDC to see that nothing was coming out for the system).

Like I said, the only reason I can see for some boys to destroy a $400 or $500 system is to show their loyalty to M$ I guess. Everyone knows that I don't like the Xbox 3FixMe but I will never buy an Xbox just to break it and put it on YouTube.

Posted by black_box_of_boredom - Friday, October 31, 2008 2:39 PM
Dutch gaming site Gamed looked to take the wind out of the sails of some of Sony's most vitriolic fan base. The site claimed that Belgian retailer Game Mania had said that the recently released 40GB PlayStation 3 is experiencing a 40 percent return rate due to faulty hardware. The report claimed the problem produced a disc-read error for Blu-ray and other media formats similar to the disc-read errors that plagued the PlayStation 2.

Yes, I've seen some boys open up a brand new PS3 and cut it with a chainsaw or drop it off of a 2nd story balcony. All on Youtube.

Posted by black_box_of_boredom - Friday, October 31, 2008 2:38 PM
look redringofpee i never said the failure rate was the same as xbox i just siad iv seen failure rates and if u want the real number of ps3 failure rates look them up.and if u remember at first the 40gig ps3 had almost 40% failure rates and this was from e3.and uncharted if u ask me and alot of others was a rip off of gow.and u say the ps3 has 95 percent of the same games its funny how were getting alot of your exclusives to thats interesting.hahahaha

Posted by reagenyouth125 - Friday, October 31, 2008 2:34 PM

You can't compare Halo Wars to the Halo FPS series. Totally different type of game......and as for only couple hundred thousand STILL playing halo on XBL.......WRONG!
In the last 24 hours there 633,521 Unique players. See that's what we call a fact. Something you rarely utilize.

Like I said....your schtick is tired RROD and your creativity (xbots - xbox lag)is piss poor at best.....you're not funny or clever nor do you bring up any valid (by valid I mean current facts) points. you're pretty much worthless...

@black_box_of_boredom

You know, it's funny how there are reports of millions of Xbox 3FixMes breaking more than once but everybody on here always say " I've had my xbox for 2 years and I've never had a problem". Somebody is lying and its not the reports. I wouldn't put too much stock in youtube. I've seen some of those videos and they are all Xbox fanboys breaking PS3's to try to make it look like the PS3's failure rate is as bad as the Xbox's. That's a losing battle there sir. The only way a PS3 can be boring is if you don't buy any games on it. You obviously didn't buy Uncharted, MGS4, Resistance, or Warhawk to name a few. I assume you only mean exclusives because the PS3 has 95% of the games that are on the Xbox 3FixMe.

Gears 1 has also sold more then any other ps3 game but now look at it, it's going to sell even more. Halo 3 was a disappointment because halo was the beacon of hope for the original xbox. It was the only game that ever did well for the xbox, and it was the only online game that anyone would play. When games started coming out like gears of war, call of duty, and more, people started getting spoiled in those games and they liked them.They didn't know what games they liked before because we never played any other online games. Still everyone wanted halo 3 knowing it was going to be epic.(which it was) But some people who were racers (forza) didn't like it. Other people who like real life (call of duty 3) didn't like it. People with battlefield didn't like it, and in the end it helps the 360.

that is something I don't think is right, yes I am agreeing with you for once, but what mommy and daddy could do is return it and buy it for 50 dollars more right. I don't agree they should sell arcade which only has storage space up to 256 mb.

@Donthate

All flaming aside, what about all of the uneducated and unsuspecting mommies and daddies that buy that $200 model and they take it home to little 12 year old Eric and Eric quickly realizes that he can't have the full experience of his system. Little Eric tells mommy and daddy that they now have to spend more money to get a descent system for their little boy. Oh yeah, in case you didn't know, price is very important. When these naive parents go into Wal-Mart and see PS3 ($400) and Xbox ($200), which one do you think they will pick?

not really, because at least R2 has grown since the first. R2 is about 22gb while R1 was 17gb.

with gears its the same maxxed out 6.5gb disc... are you really expecting more content then the first?

you know somthing redringofdeath. why do u got such a big mouth u act like your system is so damn special ressistance does not look all that great either and i doubt that it sold 5 million copies.so u need to change ur name to black box of boredom like i did because of your stupid name i hope u get aids or leprosy and that your dick and arms fall off because you are a waste of your dadys gogo juice and i hope that u take your g_a ystation and commit suicide with it cause thats all its good for.and the thing is i have nothing against the ps3 i hope that no one ever finds u cause u would be in one hell of a surprise

All I here from you is price, price and what't that, more price. You have never made a statement that is smart other then it dealing with(what's that little word)oh yeah price. Okay so the 360 is what 200 dollars (right) and the ps3 is 400 dollars (right) if i wanted to by a hardrive (120 gb, plenty for anything let alone a gaming system) it will then even out to 400 dollars. Or I could pay 250 dollars have a 20gb hardrive(again plenty enough for gaming systems) and I could pay for a lovely 360 online experience. Yes the PC has Windows live, but it misses the competiton of the 360, like halo 3, and in the near future Gears of war 2 and much much more. It's also a whole lot more expensive buying a gaming PC then a 360, or a Ps3.

You obviously forgot the problems that came along with Halo 3. The servers were down for some time. LBP is a 3rd party game and Media Molecule is responsible for the server issues, not Sony. What I love is knowing that I'm not getting ripped off by paying for something that's free every where else. You do know that that same Live service is available on the PC for free. I do. That makes you an idiot for paying for it. I also love the fact that I have the security in knowing that when I turn on my PS3 it will work. I love the fact that the Xbox 3FixMe is all tapped out and the PS3's surface has barely been scratched. I know about the slow Blu-Ray reader. That's why they do game installs which makes the game run fast and have less load times than the Xbox 3FixMe. I love the fact that I upgraded my HDD to a 250gb HDD for $60 instead of $200 for a 120gb.

I knew you were going to say something like that. What I have found with gears 2 different from gears one is the color. Gears one didn't have much color and that's why it looks good. Even bungie made a option in forge for halo 3 where you can change the color, and it makes it look amazing. But they decide a more fluent multiplayer. In gears of 2 though, there is no issue with one color. I found it cool one map having avalanches every once in a while in gears 2 and it will kill you if your in the path, but the next round it changes the whole map. The map is called avalanch. I have no doubt Resistance 2 is fun, but it's just not my cup of tee.

I know the 360 has a better graphics card, but i also know the ps3 has a slow blue ray disc reader(do you). You also haven't realized that microsoft has been upgrading and upgrading to get ready for gears of war 2 and the new xbox live experience. I'm just worried about your poor servers on the ps3 that don't get any help from sony. Honestly I feel bad for LPB buyers. If you think XbL can't handle gears, and it easily handled halo 3, you're an idiot. I just love knowing I have the far superior online. I also love thinking about Cgs, don't you redringofdeath, don't you love competive gaming on the 360 and not the ps3. I DO!

@Donthate
i said that before i had even played the game, and now after being in the beta, the game looks really promising. even the beta is an improvement over the first game. I can't wait to play that R2 single player!

@reagenyouth125
remember.. you don't have to play with 59 other people, there are lower number player servers out there... but damn, its nice to have the option of playing with 59 other people.

Posted by REDZ3RO - Friday, October 31, 2008 1:32 PM
RROD...

How long servers are down?

Check it.. LBP. Enough said.

Also you list of games you like...

I thought you hated on Bioshock? I guess its cool now that its on PS3? Lame.

Posted by reagenyouth125 - Friday, October 31, 2008 1:30 PM
your schtick is tired RROD and your creativity (xbots - xbox lag)is piss poor at best.....you're not funny or clever nor do you bring up any valid (by valid I mean current facts) points. your pretty much worthless...

boom outta here

Posted by RedRingOfDeath - Friday, October 31, 2008 1:25 PM
@Xbots

Have fun with your new Xbox Lag experience. Lets see how long the servers will be down this time and you will still have to pay for it.

Posted by RedRingOfDeath - Friday, October 31, 2008 1:23 PM
@Donthate

You know that some of these devs are just lazy when they don't take the time to make the game right for the PS3. You know the PS3 is more powerful so it can definitely be done. If you guys get MGS4 lets see if it gets a 10 on the Xbox 3FixMe like it did on the PS3.

Posted by dominion76 - Friday, October 31, 2008 1:19 PM
@donthate

Don't try to bring up facts to red. he can't comprehend this, and you will only go insane trying to explain it to this goof. 7 days until me and my friends try to get thru 50 waves of hord.

ps3 players have fun with r2 and your 60 players, hopefully it won't go down like the LBP servers.

Posted by rockstar180 - Friday, October 31, 2008 1:16 PM
I AM SO SIKED!! CANT WAIT!!!
o and I own Resistance 2 and well..... ONLINE SUCKS compared to GEARS 2

HOW CAN THIS BE GEARS 1.5? ITS A FRICKING SEQUEL!! ! OF COARSE IT WILL BE THE SAME. Resistence 2 is the same freaking thing 2, just has improvements!

So by the way you rate games(IgN) you would then realize that the 360 is better. Not saying it is but fallout 3 on xbox got a 9.6, and ps3 got a 9.4 off of Ign. Due to some presentation glitches in the game.
Bookshelf
you said it yourself, Resistance one doesn't look any better then 2. To be honest the multiplayer to me look liked a well built ps2 game. Resistance 2 got a 9.0 in graphics for the ign review, the only reason it got a 9.5 was because of replay value. I garuntee you gears of war 2 will have a lot more replay considering, gears of war 2 is still number four on xbox live and it's online didn't deliver like gears 2. Gears 2 has matchmaking, finally a ranking system(it was embarasing in gears 1) horde, a party system that's only matched by halo 3, and plenty of new gametypes.

I'm with HamLord - this has been a GREAT year for games. We've still got R2, GoW2, Mirror's Edge, Prince of Persia, Valkhria Chronicles, and Darksiders(?) to look forward to before year's end.

@ RedRingOfDeath

4 out of the 11 post are from you? You really suffer the little brother syndrome....hey everyone look at me....I'm going to disagree with what is the consensus....stomp stomp...

and I played resistance 2 beta.....the graphics are not impressive and the gun play does not compare to the gun feel on Gears

Oh and by the way 60 people matches, come on........ I'll take 8-10 people matches anyday. Killing should be personal and grudes should be held from match to match when playing versus....that's what its all about.

boom outta here....

Posted by Bookshelf - Friday, October 31, 2008 1:06 PM
so i was reading this Resistance 2 review over at Megacritic...

"It succeeds because it doesn’t just try to throw more humans into the same old environments and gameplay."

remember how Cliffy B was bragging about having tons more creatures on the screen at once in GEARS 2? and how the environments looks pretty much the same? lol i thought it was funny to hear someone rip on that.

Posted by RedRingOfDeath - Friday, October 31, 2008 12:55 PM
@HamLord

I'm sorry buy Fable 2 does not belong in the GOTY list. GOTYs usually get more than an 8.8 rating. That's a B. It has to be an A (9 or above) to be considered a GOTY candidate.

Posted by RedRingOfDeath - Friday, October 31, 2008 12:51 PM
@HamLord

I like:

Uncharted
MGS4
LBP
Resistance
Resistance 2
Motor Storm PR
Dead Space
GTA 4
Rock Band 2
Bioshock

Posted by HamLord - Friday, October 31, 2008 12:48 PM
there are to many good games to call GoTY, this early. fable 2 fallout 3 gears2 resistance2 LBP this is a time to rejoice and be happy to have a lot of old trade-in games.

Posted by HamLord - Friday, October 31, 2008 12:46 PM
wow of RRoD dosnt like a 360 game thats new, may i ask what do you like? or at least not hate that much

Posted by JDarkley - Friday, October 31, 2008 12:45 PM
"Biggest game of the year?" I'm psyched as hell about this game, but let's not forget about GTA IV. It's going to be a long time before any game beats it in sales or over-all quality.

Not to be dissing "Gears 2" though. Still can't wait for it.

Posted by Topper60 - Friday, October 31, 2008 12:36 PM
Its going to be sweet cant wait. Most excited about horde mode.

Posted by RedRingOfDeath - Friday, October 31, 2008 12:33 PM
@plato2788

It don't excite me either, I don't know what all of the fuss is about.

Posted by plato2788 - Friday, October 31, 2008 12:27 PM
check that...i meant Killzone 2...lol..not Killswitch 2...sorry...

Posted by RedRingOfDeath - Friday, October 31, 2008 12:26 PM
Resistance 2 looks a lot better IMO.

Posted by plato2788 - Friday, October 31, 2008 12:26 PM
Gears of War...

1.5...not 2

i'm just not all that excited about this, as I am other shooters...this is just too much like Gears 1

Resistance 2, COD, Killswitch 2, all are more interesting to me...

..just my 2 cents though...

Posted by BigusDickus7845 - Friday, October 31, 2008 12:18 PM
Coolness...

Posted by RedRingOfDeath - Friday, October 31, 2008 12:16 PM
