    I'm very much a 360 gamer and TBH have never really been interested in much regarding the ps3. However...

    Killzone 2 does look awesome!!!!! :thumbsup:

    Watched a feature on playr at the weekend and this game looks the business :cool:

    Depends how much you want a new Multi-player experience ? Will, Jay & myself will no doubt be putting KZ through its paces and Tetlee hinted at buying a PS3. If you fork out for for a new setup and decide a week later its not for you, I very much doubt you will have a problem selling your gear......especially considering the KZ hype machine will be moving through the gears by then (no pun intended :devil:).
    There is also: God of War, Heavy Rain, Drakes 2 & MAG (massive action game - 256 players in an online war......at once :eek:) plus the old classics of: Warhawk, Everybodys Golf & Little Big Planet.

    Now hurry up and buy one before this thread sets off the O/T alarm :smashin:

    Can't wait for KZ2, looks absolutely stunning. Watched the special KZ2 Playr episode the other day and the scout looks great. When stood still he goes invisible and then depending on how quick he moves, he becomes more and more visible. :)

    It's a funny one for me as i've never been console centric and KZ2 is just another superb console game that I can't wait to play. KZ2 and Race Pro are just two console games i'm really looking forward to and couldn't really care which format they are on. :)

    i played (sorry demoed) LBP when working at Toys R Us over christmas and its really not my game there is no point to it you play it just coz

    aPS3 has never stood out to me as it doesnt have many unique games left, M$ are getting them all and it nearly killed Sony

    the PS3 is ahead of its time and copied the Xbox a fair few ways

    if i had plenty of money i would by all means get a PS3 and a ferrari and inurance and...

    A demo of the first two levels should be on the euro PSN tommorow.

    I've a pre order in but I'm only expecting a generic FPS with pretty graphics. I'm still amazed at the hype Resistance 2 got. Not a game I enjoyed at all

    I do find it amusing that each time a decent PS3 game comes out, a new thread pops up in the 360 forum. Same happened with LBP. Before that, MGS4.

    My problem is I've already had a PS3. If I buy one now I'd be buying it for LBP and K2 and waiting for Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain and... ? That's probably it for the whole year. (God of War and GT5 will be 2010.) Not quite enough for me to justify the re-purchase.

    I was tempted when LBP launched, but I held out and a funny thing happened. The hype surrounding the game died down and I quickly realised I could hold out. :)

    How is Bob these days ?

    Early days for you Ash. When I was 17 I was just turning my back on PS1 and spending all my spare cash on hideously lairy Moschino Shirts and Iceberg Jumpers with Daffy duck on the front ! All in the name of chasing girls in Croydons Blue Orchid 3 nights a week :rotfl:
    12 Years later and I am lucky enough to have all the toys I want but its taken graft to get there. In an ideal world as avid gamers we should all have the best of both worlds and own the two consoles, however it is difficult to justify having both when you naturally gravitate to one over the other. I use my PS3 alot for Blueray playback but I know a lot of the guys aren't overly bothered with that. Killzone could be what truly kicks off my PS3 gaming though, I have already twisted a few non AVF mates into buying PS3s just for KZ so the foundations have been laid :devil:
    Finally managed to find the official PS3 headsets in stock yesterday too........the hurdle of the PS3 community being denied my vocal enlightenment has been beat :smashin:

    I have a PS3 and in all honesty I'm not buying it day one. I'm not happy with the crazy hype surrounding the game and after the debacle that was the GTAIV reviews I'm going to wait a week or two first then maybe try and pick it up cheaper. I don't particularly want to play on PSN anyway so I'd be buying for the campaign rather than the multiplayer side. The game sure looks stunning but I'll wait till I hear reviews from some people I trust first.

    Besides all this I still have MGS4 to play through on my PS3 and many 360 games to finish off.

    Hearing about the Blue Orchid gives me some horrible flashbacks! Don't think it's there anymore though? Oh well, saved a yonger generation from it's horrors.

    On topic:
    Don't know if someone already beat me to this but two reviews were not totally positive.

    I have a PS3 and i can honestly say i have not turned it on, in well over 6 months.

    Killzone looks good, but it is shaping up to be very much like cod (no bad thing).

    I might see if my PS3 still works with this one. i'll borrow it off someone though.

    Now then [-]Jay[/-] Kop, i think you just have to bite the bullet and admit that you aren't gonna be happy until you own both consoles and decide to keep them both.

    PS3 is more of a tempting prospect these days but i aint getting one until they are a more tempting price.

    On the Killzone front i've read a couple of previews and heard reports on a podcast that despite it looking really nice it doesn't do anything that other games haven't done better. Not the "Halo / GOW killer" that the PS3 needs.

    I have no interest in the PS3. We got a Wii for the kids and the 360 does me just fine. I spend enough on those two without getting a third console.

    Each to their own, I'm not gonna go trolling.

    I genuinely hope KZ2 isn't another 'Haze' or 'GoW2'.
