    I like to play GoW, but I didnt like the trailer of GoW2...
    They could have done it more colourful..
    Its almost like a classic "black and white" video.

    Theres a big differance between a Trailer and actual Gameplay. Gameplay will be awesome.

    Yeah thats for sure.
    But I ment that they could put much more effort for the trailer..
    But yeah I like GoW, at the beginning I was strugling with the control with GoW1, but later on, am OK with it.

    Well its coming out at 11/3/08 or something like that. The trailer is most likely just a demo or something. Pretty sure they will make a better trailer either on the Xbox Live Marketplace or Online.

    Changed the topic title. It read like the second coming of christ before.

    Yeah cool there is another one, hope the multiplayer is good fun otherwise Resistance 2 will tear it to pieces. 60 player multiplayer is what Gears 2 has to compete with because it certainly can't compete on story (the Gears manual told me more about the story than playing the entire game did).

    I saw exclusive screen shots. Xbox 360 Fan boy provided, it looked AWESOME. Word is that the Multilayer might have co-op. Not official, but maybe.

    60 player multiplayer does not necesarily means it is also good.
    Look at CoD 4 with Groundwar, it shucks balls, it is just overcrowded.
    But that may be just my opinion, maybe I just prefer smaller teams. [​IMG]

    CoD4 DOES NOT SUCK. You probably never played it. Your probably the ones who just run in and start yelling in the MIC saying "WTF? HACK HACK HACK!!!"

    [​IMG] We got Dedicated servers.
    And in this case I have to disagree with D_J. More people will make this game a lot more challenging online and just a lot more fun. Especially if you know a lot of people with PS3s. All your friends in one place FTW.

    Thing is, You don't notice it with PSN for some reason. People sometimes go from one area to another all of a sudden sometimes, but it's not very common.

    I suppose. It happens a lot on the BP Demo. Most likely due to the fact my upload is only like 128kbps a second. So I cause them to lag lol. My friends connection ( 15MB down, 5 MB up ) has zero lag.

    Except the 2 games are completely different. Resistance 1 and 2 > Battlefield 1 and 2. IMO
