Yay! Another Killzone 2 Thread. :D
...a Microsoft spokesperson had this to say about Killzone 2 and Microsoft’s future:
“We congratulate Sony and Guerilla Games for their efforts with Killzone 2, however this is only the beginning of a new wave. The current technology employed for certain unannounced Xbox 360 exclusives far surpasses what gamers have seen in any game so far. Gears of War was the beginning of this technological benchmark when released on the 360 and this lineage will be carried forward in the following months with exclusives that shall stand for a new definition of gaming experience and provide stiff competition for the opposition.”
Do I believe them? Yes. I think they can definitely make better looking games as this generation still has alot more to offer in graphics department, but I doubt they could make an FPS with the same amount of details.
is it just me or when it comes to this gen. is microsoft always trying to 1-up sony??? everything is compared by them... i understand that they are the only HD consoles so i guess that makes them bitter rivals, but ms isnt doing enough imo to really set the bar over sony... DLC not enough, especially when gamers are paying for those extra hours of gaming... buying exclusives??? pathetic imo money should be used in developing more and better 1st party games...
Is it just me or when it comes to this gen, is Sony always playing 2nd fiddle to Microsoft??? everything is compared by them... i understand that they are the only HD consoles so i guess that makes them bitter rivals, but Sony isnt doing enough to really catch up to Microsoft... KZ2 not enough, especially when gamers waited years for it... poor selling exclusives??? pathetic imo, money should be used to find out what the market wants and actually deliver it.
and by that you mean spending money on a GTA DLC episode, a sequel in the halo franchise, not so great 1st party games er um VIVA PINATA anyone??!?!? er um anyone??? BANJO KAZOOOOOOOIE!!!?!?!?! ok so how about ninja blade??? no??? what about NNN sequel???? no??? we have SE's new line of mediocre at best RPGs... no?? ummmmmmmmm gee ummmmmmm... *rumor* lets spend that money and make BioShock 2 a TIMED exclusive.... now THATS an investment.. forget fixing RRoD fixing that would be a WAAAASTE of money
1.) You do realize the GTA DC has a very good chance of being free for Microsoft, right? Those 50 million weren't a gift, they were an advancement. If both DLC make exactly 55 Million dollars combined, Rockstar gets around 3-4 million out of it. They have to pay Microsoft back 50 million + royalties for releasing it on Xbox Live. So no, Microsoft didn't pay them, they loaned them the money.
2.) The Halo fanchise is one of the strongest and most profitable in the industry.
So you're saying a console widening the gap over its competitor despite a crummy library and hardware issues? Man, the other guy must have done a lot of stupid things for something like that to happen!
5 of the top 15 PS3 games were publishes by Sony.
5 of the top 15 360 games were published by Microsoft.
I think Microsoft's first party games are selling pretty darn well.
