So there is a $100 PS3 without a Blu Ray? :icon_eek:

I'd buy it.

Looks like Sony spoke too soon on fixing the scaling issue thru a firmware update,

http://biz.gamedaily.com/industry/news/?id=14518

Quote
Sony has contacted us to let us know that they may have spoken a bit prematurely. SCEA's Dave Karraker, Sr. Director, Corporate Communications, informed GameDaily BIZ that they currently cannot confirm that this 1080i issue will be resolved via a firmware patch. The official line is now that they are "looking into the issue and haven't stated any actions that will be taken regarding it."

Oh well......

I'm sorry you guys can't spot idiotic AI and mediocre visuals within a few minutes. It's all right there on the screen.

Go play it.

Games as completely weak and rushed as Resistance?

Yes.

It's Killzone all over again. Tons of hype for a completely mediocre game experience. I'm sure the PS3 will have tons of titles that more than live up to their hype and reviews. It may not even take very long for a game like that to show up... but Resistance is not one of those games.

hahahaha..... oh that was good.... a professional reviewer actually playing the game through.  Just like most reviewers actually bothered to play chromehounds multiplayer before reviewing it, or Enchanted Arms for more than an hour (since they never got to the point to find out Makato is a temporary character, yet they dock the game as if he is permanent since they didn't play long enough to find out for sure...).

Well i got GoW in a trade and played about 3 hours yesterday.  But my question is........am i missing something?  All this hype and it really seems like every other shooter i have played.  Ya the graphics are incredible...but the story so far is your typical alien invasion and kill/move....kill/move gameplay.  I do like the cover system, but other than that i'm not getting it.  Does it get to be something more after a couple more hours or is this it? 

I wasn't expecting anything revolutionary, but i was expecting something "different".  With all the hype i thought i'd start it up and become in awe, which i haven't thus far.  What am i missing?  Is the hype because of the graphics?

Yeah pretty much.  It's the graphics, cover system, and later-on, some of the level design.  The drop-in co-op over live is also pretty cool.  I also like the 4 on 4 with the teammate revive/enemy finish off mechanic of the multiplayer.

But at the end of the day it is still a shooter.  I'm not sure if there is anything that would totally revolutionize shooters anymore.

As I mentioned in a different thread, without a doubt Gears of War looks better than Resistence. I think it also plays better than Resistance. However, the variance between the two is not that significant. I think GoW has better art direction which tends to make the gap between the two seem larger than it really is. Also, consider this:

1) Insomniac, unlike Epic, does not specialize in first person shooters.
2) Overall there is more activity going on in Resistance at any one time.
3) Resistence runs smoothly at 1080P. <er...720P>

Insomniac managed to stay in the race with Epic, and that is no small accomplishment.

Well I have barely gotten anywhere in Resistance, but if the game is longer than the 6 hours it takes to beat Gears of War, then that's a plus right there.  I do think Gears of War is a technical masterpiece, but Epic should be ashamed of themselves to have released a game with this much hype that is so short.

LOL.  I saw that Gundam is sitting at 34%.  Actually that might be a little bit high from what I saw.

Gundam 34%
Untold Legends 57%
Genji 57%
Ridge Racer 77%

Resistance is truely the diamond in the pile of garbage that are the PS3 exclusives.  Since the Japaneese hate FPS's so much it makes me wonder why they would buy a launch PS3 at all.  If they could sell out in Japan that quickly I have to agree that Sony could box up turds and sell a million of them in Japan.

I find the blu ray player part of the system not worth mentioning.  Blu ray players aren't even needed right now for anything and by the time they are I suspect the prices will drop dramatically and the quality will increase just as dramatically.  Just like the vcr and dvd players did.  I can wait. 

But I do agree that the developers made the systems the way they are and there is nothing we can do about it.  I will have both systems someday for one reason and one reason only-and the ONLY reason to get a game system in my opinion-FOR THE GAMES!  And not because it bakes bread or mows my lawn.

lol, well at least the couple review sites that I read and trust do play through games, I'm not saying every random shitty site does

like for your examples, the places I read all said MP in Chromehounds was way better although they still docked the game for a terrible SP, which IMO is totally valid.  and as for Enchanted Arms, I honestly don't even recall them mentioning Makato.  the reasons it didn't get 9+'s from the places I read were due to other aspects of the game.  really, the people that complain the most about Makato are users on forums across the net.  lol, which shady review sites do you read, a bunch of them or what =P

Sure, playing on casual-which misses the point. Play on hardcore, entirely different experience, and there is no way in hell you can finish it in 5.

Well, yes the exclusives are not all that great at launch....besides Resistance (I do like Untold Legends and Genji though....reviews be damned!). You have to remember though that the vast majority of PS2 owners do not own a Xbox 360, so you need to look at the total lineup of games.

When you add in these games:

Marvel Ultimate Alliance: 86% (which has a better average score than the 360 version!)
Call Of Duty 3: 81%
Tiger Woods 82%
NBA 2k7 - 82%

It makes for a much more impressive launch list.

I'm not what your point is there?   Of course the cross platform games are available to everyone.  But as I see it you are choosing a PS3 over a 360 right now for the exclusives.

GoW, Dead Rising, GRAW, Gotham, Dead or Alive, Spliter Cell, Table Tennis, The Outfit, Condemned, etc.

VS

Resistance, Genji, Untold Legends, Gundam.


Yes the 360 has been out longer.  But I don't think alot of people in the market for a console care about that.  They care what is available right now.  I honestly don't see how anyone would pay more for a PS3 over a 360 this season.  I guess it doesn't matter anyway since there are no PS3's available.

Yeah adding 4 games that are available on the 360 makes the PS3 launch look soooooooo much better.  Not to mention he said PS3 EXCLUSIVES.

don't bother Hetz, professional reviewers actually have to play through the entire game before making their final judgment

Yes, because they get paid to play games regardless of whether the first few levels bore them beyond belief.

I on the other hand do not, and thus will choose what I like based on direct play impressions. You got my impressions of Resistance. You obviously don't agree with me and that's fine, but I don't go around pointing at your opinions and making jokes like you're a moron if I don't agree with you.

Again, my impressions stand.

And if you want a list of games that reviewed extremely well with high scores that most of the people around here found to be entirely mediocre I guarantee you we could come up with a fairly long one.

yes, your personal impressions do stand and you're free to post them, I'm not arguing that

however, any rational person wouldn't pay attention to them in this specific case, due to the fact that you only played 10 minutes.  wouldn't you agree that's fair to say

Yes, because a "rational opinion" on a game can't possibly be formed in a short time, regardless of circumstances. I don't imagine I need the rolleyes icon here to emphasize the sarcasm.

Quote from: KePoW

No, I wouldn't. Firsthand impressions from people who have finished the game actually, as far as I can find, completely validate my opinion of the enemy AI. And I believe my other statement was on the graphics engine, which I said has unrealized potential. It manages to have a lot of action onscreen at once and play pretty smoothly. Bravo. But the art direction and overall visuals suck. If you can't look at a game for ten minutes and know whether you like how it looks or not then I don't know what to tell you.

Also, I believe the idea that I only played for ten minutes is a statement you manufactured all on your own. I said I played a couple of levels. I then stated that most of my opinions were (to me) pretty visible within ten minutes of gameplay. I played longer based on the chance that things might seem better with a little more time. Instead.. my initial opinion was proven the more I played.

Try reading a little more carefully next time and not putting words in my mouth.

The Sci Fi Call of Duty knockoff comment was simply a combination of the other observations. Nonexistent AI and over-praised visuals? Sounds like Call of Duty to me. I've heard Call of Duty compared to Wac-a-Mole set in WWII. It's not a comparison I'm willing to argue with. After playing Resistance it also seemed perfectly relevant given the "WWII... but with ALIENS!" setting of the game.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance: 86% (which has a better average score than the 360 version!)
Call Of Duty 3: 81%
Tiger Woods 82%
NBA 2k7 - 82%

It makes for a much more impressive launch list.

Yeah adding 4 games that are available on the 360 makes the PS3 launch look soooooooo much better.  Not to mention he said PS3 EXCLUSIVES. 

Didn't you read my post? I said that most people don't have a 360, so it doesn't really matter if it's available on the 360 or not. It's a great launch lineup, made even better with an exclusive like Resistance.

Resistance wins the head to head comparison. Pretty amazing, considering that most people that have played the game for 10 minutes have said it is crap!  icon_smile

The winner is the one that sells the most copies.  Any other comparisons really don't matter.  Gears is pretty fun, but the story sucks, as well as a lot of the atmosphere and the Kryll. 

Pretty subjective writeup though on the comparison.  At least Gears does something fairly unique with the cover stuff.  Resistance looks like a great FPS, but just an FPS without much added.

Right, which is why the average review score is almost 90% (89.2% to be exact)

http://www.gamerankings.com/htmlpages2/928399.asp

Wow, the game must totally SUCK!

LOL.  I saw that Gundam is sitting at 34%.  Actually that might be a little bit high from what I saw.

Gundam 34%
Untold Legends 57%
Genji 57%
Ridge Racer 77%

Resistance is truely the diamond in the pile of garbage that are the PS3 exclusives.  Since the Japaneese hate FPS's so much it makes me wonder why they would buy a launch PS3 at all.  If they could sell out in Japan that quickly I have to agree that Sony could box up turds and sell a million of them in Japan.

Sorry, I was confused because you wrote most PS2 owners dont have a 360.  And the fact that you think because one magazine gave Resistance the same score as GoW and because one site said Resistance is better that the majority of people are wrong?  Your fanboyism changes like the fucking weather.  Its like you use this forum to somehow justify your PS3 purchase.  Like you need to post stuff like this to confirm that the PS3 is worth it.  I just dont get it.  Also, ripping someone because their impressions of a game dont match yours is immature horse shit.  The PS3 launch is clearly mediocre to average with no games over 90% on Gamerankings. 

EDIT:
That article on games daily(the authority of console gaming) is pretty weak IMO.  Oh well, arguing with a fanboy is like talking a red brick wall into changing colors.

I think he has a valid point GF. Yeah, if you have a 360, there's not a whole lot that's unique about the launch lineup. If you're a PS2 guy, though, and don't have a 360, the launch looks more interesting. Still, in that situation, I think it's fairly difficult to justify a PS3 purchase over 360. Even if you're interested in high def movies, 360 has that option these days and a more mature game library at this point in time. The chief reason to get a PS3 (vs 360) right now would be PS2 compatibility, but if you have a PS2 you probably don't need that (unless you're trading it in/selling it/giving it away). Backward compatibility being your best feature vs the competition doesn't seem to indicate a great release.

Still, regardless of your platform of choice, all 3 new systems have some great-looking titles, and that should be celebrated. The next few years are going to be a heck of a lot of fun.

I think it does matter to people who have neither a 360 or a PS3.  Especially if the game looks basically the same and the 360 is at least $100 less expensive.  Also I think you are the 1st person I have heard call the PS3 launch lineup "great."

What a tremendously arbitrary, subjective, silly, pointless-and completely useless comparison that was. Oh wow, I won't provide any objective facts but will claim one game is better based solely on my opinion! Come on now, thats just silly.

Uh oh Resistance fans,
Gamespot gave GoW a better score, IGN gave GoW a better score, 1up gave GoW a better score, Gamespy gave GoW a better score, and so on and so forth.

It is silly, but the members of the SDF will be all over that.

They'll casually forget that gamerankings tells a whole different story, especially if you compare the scores from sites that reviewed BOTH games.

For many of them, it's simply not enough that the game is a very good FPS, it has to be better than Gears, it just has to.

I don't get it.

Just enjoy it for what it is, especially since RFOM is by far the best launch game for the PS3, and in many people's opinions, the only good game to launch with it.

We all can? Everyone has a 360? Impressive!

I wonder though....how come the Xbox 360 is doing worse than the Xbox (sales wise) over the first 12 months of it's life? That doesn't seem to square with your claim that we can all play Gears of War.

*duh*

I just now realized that you were trying to be clever with your Gamespot gave this a better score stuff....nevermind.
