    So my 60gb launch PS3 really wasn’t designed for downloadable games.

    So when a AAA f2p game comes out, that really bums me out. Shame we don’t know how many gigabytes it is.

    I only have 500mbs free anyhow.


    Nextgen please.

    You could upgrade your HDD at anytime and then download these f2p games.

    @1 It cost me €40 to replace my old 60GB PS3 HDD with a 320GB one. It’s not exactly expensive.

    Don’t expect the problem to disappear with the next gen. As the HDDs get larger, so will the size of the games.

    I’d have to transfer all my current stuff to this new drive, and then I’d have to fiddle with my backwards compatible PS3 (which I’d prefer not do).

    So that’s why I am pining for nextgen.

    I understand the lust for next gen. But since you actually have only about 48 gbs of concrete data in use. It would be super easy to back up your information and then transfer it over to a bigger HDD. You also could just use PSN+ for your saved data and just download everything from psn again.

    I did not like it at launch, but now when they fixed major problems it’s still not what I want it to be. Too much Halo inspiration in it.

    but it is a decent game and in my opinion SonyxCCP is a strong relationship.

    This game looks absolutely awful. I don’t want to be “that guy”, but the graphics actually makes it look like a PS2 game (at best, some of the particle effects are N64-level).

    It’s also unresponsive, laggy, weak feedback, monotonous art and crap lighting that makes the levels hard to read. All these problems could have been fixed if it was a PC game.

    There is also a lot of texture popping and the textures are in general very low res. Why did they use UDK if this was going to be a huge open sandbox game? Why not CryEngine? Although, they could have optimized it and have it work (Borderlands 2 works quite well). The engine can do much, much better than this if optimized and used correctly.

    Good article, shitty game :P didn’t like beta one bit, and would take too long to level up a very very big waste of time, BF4 I will pay for :)

    You are free to point out what’s wrong with that statement. It is true because the constraints would have been less tight using a PC platform. I’m not saying it definitely would be fixed, but it could easily have been.

    “the graphics actually makes it look like a PS2 game”

    Is this the new craze? To say games look like a PS2 game? Are you blind or did you have some sort of suped up PS2? I think you’ll find no PS2 games look like this. Please, anyone, feel free to prove me wrong and get some screens though.
