Anything on The Agency?
12:53: They're pumping smoke in here, either to confuse us or make this all seem like a dream. First mention of Killzone 2, which has been suspiciously absent so far. LittleBigPlanet, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, MGS4, Guns of the Patriots, Quantum of Solace, SOCOM Confrontation, Ghostbusters: The Video Game, Soul Calibur IV, Resistance 2, The Agency, Naruto Storm, Mirror's Edge, Resident Evil 5, Singstar, Guitar Hero World Tour, NBA09: The Inside, Buzz Quiz TV, Killzone 2
I think it breeds a lot of confusion with consumers and I'm sure it upsets those that purchase a system just before the new SKU is announced (and yes, I know there are some here who will answer that by saying "Just return it and get the new SKU". I don't think that's a valid arguement for the average consumer and for the geeks like us, it just creates a hassle that we resent.)
Andy Beaudoin from Zipper interactive. MAG = Massive Action Game. Zipper building on their experience from SOCOM. Buh. 256-player battles. We certainly hope this handles voice chat well. "MAG will deliver a sweeping battle experience using only real players" 8-player squads. lead by people who are "proven" to be good leaders, character advancement tree to fine-tune your character.
This game sounds like its going to be huge.
There also are no plans to have the games be different on Xbox 360 and PS3. Nothing has been decided for sure yet, but the team is looking at ways to compress the audio and pre-rendered cutscenes that take up a lot of data without affecting the quality when bringing the game from a blu-ray format to the DVDs that Xbox 360 reads.
Keep this in mind:
I for one, not going to get the 360 version.
Ported version, more discs to change.....DVD LOLZ.
I am sure cosmetically we will see a difference in graphics between the two versions.
I am pretty sure which version will look the best.
I am a big Ps3 guy, and blu ray supporter.....this E3 has me scratching my head and making me wonder if it wouldnt be btter to just get a 360....They can do the same things Sony does, Faster and a little better...Dont get me wrong Resistance 2 and Killzone 2 will be amazing, but come on, Netflix on your 360? My wife and I would LOVE that.
Biggest news to me was that 80GB model is loosing all PS2 BC and is dropping to the $400 price point.
What is the deal with Sony's on again, off again backwards compatibility on the PS3? I'm a little late to the game but still trying to decide between PS3 and Xbox 360. I definitely would want BC since I have many PS2 games and don't want to have a PS3 and a PS2 hooked up to my TV.
I was afraid of that. Thanks for the info :upThey've since said backwards compatibility is completely going away. Once the MGS bundles are discontinued and replaced with these new 80GBs I am expecting it to be the only PS3 SKU on the market for the holiday season.
If you want backwards compatibility, now is the time to buy a PS3 or you'll have to buy one from a reseller/ebay/craigslist, or you'll have to buy/keep a PS2 hooked up.
