Seriously, does the PS3 have any MP games that can stand toe to toe with games like Halo or Gears in terms of anything? I never saw much, UC3 had great dev support but the game was terrible to play, Killzone 2 was fun, but 3 was a mess, Starhawk=LOL, Socom, even playstation fans will admit they just want a HD remake of 2. I honestly can't think of any.

Nope. Socom was good on PS2 but now its dead. KZ,Haze, Starflop, and MAG are all failures.

[QUOTE="Mkavanaugh77"]COD series maybe. Even though the online doesnt compare to the 360 version.

COD is on the 360 too, I am talking exclusives.

It has plenty:

Killzone 2/3

Uncharted 2/3

Resistance 1/2 (never played 3)

Little Big Planet 1/2 (you only need to buy the sequel, it comes with all LBP 1 levels)

Demon's Souls (though I hear they turned off the servers)

It also has great multiplat MP based games as well such as COD, RDR etc....Both systems have the great MP games, which one has the better one's comes down to your personal preference.

Uncharted's kindof fun but it never had any real staying power. StarHawk looks pretty good and I remember alot of people used to play WarHawk.

Starhawk

Resistance

LBP

I liked KZ3 multiplayer quite a bit. They say KZ2 is even better. UC3 MP is pretty fun as well. I haven't played Warhawk, but I heard it was a standout game in the early PS3 years. Fat Princess looks fun as well. Can't say I like any online MP game on PS3 better than Halo, but then again I can't say I like any online MP game on any system as much as I like Halo, except Team Fortress 2 on PC.

Oh I forgot LBP. I'm not that much into platformers, but it's hard to not have any fun playing this series online. Nothing really like it on 360 and one of PS3's best MP games imo.

nope, they didn't think multiplayer gaming was going to be as big as it is going into this gen and were completely unprepared.

Then no. PS3 is only good for streaming videos off my computer and playing the odd exclusive like MGS4. The 360 does multiplats and online better.

What method do you use to stream videos from your computer to your PS3? When my laptop is on in the same room, I see that it shows up in some kind of network options with the ps3, but I've never really tried to do anything with it. How might I use the PS3 to watch videos that are, say, on an external HDD connected to my laptop?

well you think gears 3 has great mp... so no matter what i say, you'll reject it. Warhawk/Starhawk + killzone 2 + Resistance 2 + LBP1/2...soon to be PSASBR
#14 Posted by Obviously_Right (5319 posts) -

Gears has terrible online gtfo you troll.

#15 Posted by BattleSpectre (6692 posts) -

Killzone series isn't bad.

#16 Posted by sora16perfect (718 posts) -
Well i haven't tried starhawk but warhawk is in one of the top 3 multiplayer games on the system imo.
#17 Posted by OB-47 (10909 posts) -

Killzone 2 was fantastic.

That's about it.

Killzone 3 was alright.
It kinda went downhill from there

Also don't get the Gears 3 hate? I doubt any of you cows have actually played it. Simply relying on the other responses to form an opinion.

It still beats pretty much all Sony's online offerings

#19 Posted by SkyRaid (2001 posts) -

Based off the lists people are posting, I'd say no.

:?

Standout? No

#21 Posted by Liquid_ (2927 posts) -

Did you just say Gears of War has good online multiplayer?

#22 Posted by JohnnyCageMK (4365 posts) -
Cows are already butthurt over Halo 4, Forza Horizon and Fable Journey. Its only fitting that someone topped it off making them cry over Gears.
#23 Posted by GD1551 (9645 posts) -

No, all of them are either super generic or bargin bin level. That tends to happens when their games focus on presentation over gameplay.

Gears1 had one of my favorite Mp experience of all time next to Halo CE for the PC Gears 2 was a big change i did not like but still was solid, and Gears 3 was better than 2 but not the same as 1. But yeah Gears has a great online multiplayer. Better than Uncharted or Killzone.

Neither of them have good online multiplayer. Are you serious? lmao

People still play all of PS3 exclusives online including Resistance Fall of Man. Don't believe me? Look at my youtube channel.

Let's be honest here mate Gears of War 1 multiplayer was amazing, i had so much fun playing with my brother and friends online for days on end. I think it's still got a solid community to this day.

But to each their own.

I wonder if Sony were able to pay off reviewers like Microsoft their games would get better scores. [spoiler] :P [/spoiler]

LOL@ people seriously saying Gears doesn't have good MP.

[QUOTE="GhettoBlastin92"]LOL@ people seriously saying Gears doesn't have good MP. Mkavanaugh77
Those people have never played it.

Tried it, it was okay. Not as godlike as you guys made it out to be though beast mode was fun. Played better MP elsewhere though.

It's awful. The first one was good. Then they changed the movement of the game and it went to sh*t. Lol if you play that noob fest garbage.

Wrong. Played it and most generic 3rd person game I have ever played

Seriously, does the PS3 have any MP games that can stand toe to toe with games like Halo or Gears in terms of anything? I never saw much, UC3 had great dev support but the game was terrible to play, Killzone 2 was fun, but 3 was a mess, Starhawk=LOL, Socom, even playstation fans will admit they just want a HD remake of 2. I honestly can't think of any.

GhettoBlastin92

Battlefield 3 pisses all over those games and it's on PS3.

So there ya go.

Then people are just gonna play the scores game. If the game has a good score, they'll still knock it off. I'm good fan on how Starhawk's MP is. Nothings more satisfying than spawn dropping on an enemy in your base.

Why should exclusives even matter when BF3 kicks them all in the ass?

Since the PS3 does not have any stand out online games the cows instead just try to tear down the 360's games which is their normal tactic for everything.

I think what is funnier is that all the lems are Republican

#44 Posted by dvalo9 (1281 posts) -
There are games like starhawk that have a good community just not vocal. Games like halo(still a great game) and gears generally have a more vocal community that likes to spout on the internet, making the games seem better than they are.
#45 Posted by Dead-Memories (6586 posts) -

the only real games i played on the PS3 were the multiplayer components if its first party titles, uncharted 2 and 3, killzone 2 and 3, demons' souls, I played all for at least 100-150 hours each if you could believe it. all great experiences. ironically, never touched the single player for any of them though.

I dont think anyone can mention any games that will satisfy you or answer your question as you will keep moving the goal posts to suit whatever agenda this thread is trying to achieve....

Just my theory, anyways/ but the LBP games and Demons Souls have some of the most unique and innovative multiplayer elements this gen...

*awaits contrived response*

#47 Posted by Z-Fatalis (1058 posts) -

LBP has the best online this gen, and it's not even debatable

#48 Posted by Chris_Williams (14882 posts) -

you never heard of this little game called little big planet? you know that game that had over 1 million levels designed

#49 Posted by PAL360 (27161 posts) -

Gears has terrible online gtfo you troll.

Obviously_Right

Not Gears 3. It's one of the most polished multiplayer games available!

On topic. I would say LBP2. Also one of the best PS3 games.

Nahh the ps3 is garbage when it comes to online
