It always irks me when people can't appreciate something new because it differs too muchfromtradition. I've never understood it. Yeah, X was a beautiful game, butthe characters still had to take turns slapping eachother around...just like every other game in the series thats come before it. If that's what you love, then by all means play the old familiar games. You should know though: If the series continues withthis newgameplay model, it will survive... with orwithout you.

If you're having reservations about it, you might want to wait for it to come down in price. In-store price is $59.99, and I think the download price is $39.99. Buying it in a store will get youa bluetooth headset. There is no single-player to the game at all. If you're not big on multiplayer, then there's no reason to rush out and get it. Even at $40,it's stillpretty steep for an online only game.
On the other hand, if all you play is multiplayer, then there's no reason for you to wait. You won't find a better multiplayer experience on the PS3. If you've played the Battlefield series, or even the Battlefront series for that matter, you'll know what to expect from this game.
I've got all three systems, and I chose that answer for the poll. Including Heavenly Sword which came out last week, my PS3 library went to five games (Heavenly Sword, Warhawk, NBA 2k7, Virtua Fighter 5 and Resistance). They're all good games, but five isn't a lot. Considering I payed+$600 to get my PS3, and I use it more as a glorified PS2/DVD player, I'm a little dissapointed with it. If I had known Sony was going to drop the price on a the 60gig, I wouldn't have had a problem waiting to buy mine. Add the fact that Sony can't seem to make up it's mind as to what the PS3 is supposed to be (20gig and 60gig models nixed, new rumble controllers announced) and my confidence in Sony gets shaken a bit.
On top of all that, developers are having trouble optimizing games for the PS3. I've been trying to buy just PS3 games for a while now.Whenevera newgame comes out there seems to be a framerate issue (madden. the darkness), or a glitch (lair) or some delay (stranglehold)that makes it not worth my time or makes the 360 version the better choice. These problems aren't uncommon in a new console, but when Sony is trying to go head to head with another console that has been out for a year longer, it only makes their problems stand out. Instead of rallying behind it's deveolpers to iron out every wrinkle possible before a games launch, they bring out new rumble controllers...which makes it seem like Sony doesn't have its priorities in order.
Given more time the console will get better. In the mean time, early adopters like myself are going to feel a little burned when we have to invest more money, in what wasalready asteep investment, just to keep up with Sonys changes.
Also, lets stop the "gs biased" topics please. I can find topics in every board on this site that scream gs is in someones pocket (Nintendo, Microsoft, even Sony). Lets grow up please and not scream bloody murder when you think gs is doingyour consolea disservice.
