I was thinking to get it on PS3 but PS3 will cost loads and i would only play Haze on it so its kinda pointless. I think im gonna get it on PC and just update my pc is i need to </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Considering how much it will cost to upgrade your PC, is it that much more to get a PS3? If this is really all you would play on it I guess you're right though...

I'll be going for PS3. Some of my mates may get it on 360 as they already have that machine, but they may also get a PS3 at some point. It would be nice if it didn't matter and we could all play together wouldn't it? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

X-Box 360. While the PS3 is the cost of a PC upgrade (or in fact, a new PC altogether), I already have a PC (with enough spares to make a second), which I can upgrade any part of any time I like, unlike the PS3. Unless tacking on a mouse and keyboard is considered an "upgrade." http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

I haven't seen enough of a difference yet between the two to justify the outrageous price Sony wants us to pay, and I am (was) a fan of Sony.

Besides, there aren't any exclusive games on the PS3 schedule I really want to get at the moment. Certainly none to justify the costs. Maybe if they dropped $200 off the price of the "true" console I'd reconsider.

No, the announced European price is 499/599 euros - straight conversion is the only way this will go, (340/408 at current exchange rates. Don't forget it's region-free, so big price differences will be mean lots of cross-importing which they won't want).

We may see the straight euro conversion price or more likely a RRP of 349/399 - who sells a console for 408?

It's still a good deal: the PS2 launched at 300/$300, so we pay an extra 50-100, the US pays an extra $200-300! Poetic justice if you ask me...

And that's my last word on the matter! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

PC's aren't all that expensive anymore. A strictly gaming PC, maybe could be done for the same amount, but the cheap off the shelf ones? They go for under $400 now. My point was, it's still too much money for a glorified gaming console.

That's all I have to add to that discussion.

The game does look good though. I can remember the days of Nintendo. Just plain Nintendo with the 8bit CPU and sprite graphics so with these next gen consoles (any of them), the level of detail and complexity is astounding. And they only keep improving.

Most likely PS3.

It's my most anticipated next-gen system, and I am certainly buying it at launch.

I don't really express much interest in the Xbox 360 since most of the games on it, and announced for it don't seem too appealing in my opinion.

And even though I love playing PC games, Free Radical's games seem better on the consoles than on PC.

Well seriously, with the prices of computer hardware, by the time this game comes out you'll be able to build a brand new computer that will be more than good enough to run Haze for the same price as a PS3. And you'll be able to do 100x more things with a PC as well. And when you need to get your heartbeat back to normal you can put Oblivion back in http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/353.gif

ive already got a pc, been botched together over years, gradually adding better parts, so it doesnt cost one big ammount, i just add small bits here and there, and sell off the old parts. the most expensive part i have ever bought is my athlon64X2 4400+ dual core cpu, which was 300 when i got it last year, but i sold off my old one for 150 so it cost me half.
thats the difference with pc and console, you can blag away the old parts of computers to n00bs on ebay and they pay stupidly high prices some of the time. with a console, everyone knows when its outdated, so noone will pay high prices. my computer, after having sold of the other parts, probably cost me 450, and it can do a hell of alot more than a ps3 &gt; ps3 is limitied to the gaming area, whereas with a pc you can do anything.
when they build a gaming console that can do everything a computer can do, more, and better, for less than 450, and have it hold its value longer, then ill get one http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

lol, why don't you get a Geforce 7950 GX2, 1GB graphics selling for about "600 ($770, 415). Or use SLI mode and have 2GB &gt;.&lt;

I bought my pc for 400 ($740, "580), it needs upgrading to play some moedern games (since it's more of a budget pc). But I'm halfway there to getting a new motherboard, since the current one doesnt have an AGp or PCIe slot.

If I manage to collect money between that upgrade and xmas, then I'll use that to buy RAM. And at xmas I'll use the money to get a sweet g-card and buy my copy of Haze. (Maybe a Haze demo would have come out by then).

I've got it all planned out, although if I don't get enough money between the motherboard and xmas, then the RAM will have to be deducted and the graphics might have to wait, or be not as good as it could be (that 1gb is dearer than my actual pc!).

The worst that could happen is my mum doesn't buy the thing (she's not keen on online shopping only because she doesn't have the ability to storm into the shop if the product is faulty and demand to speak to the manager).

Ah, what a ramble of a post.

There's too much bare-bones competition for FPS games on PC, so that is ruled out.

The halo 3 crowd does kind of draw too much attention away from the game on xbox, though.

So, that leaves ps3. Haze can have a near-monopoly on the ps3 player market, which will increase the user base, which will increase the amount of people who will get soundly whupped by yours truly.

It doesn't matter which console us forum members get it on, because the system should support multiplayer from xbox360&lt;-&gt;ps3&lt;-&gt;pc, etc.

It's all the same game, so the networking protocols should be similiar. The only issue is whether Sony and Microsoft can negotiate a relatively fast enough bridge between their two networks for the benefit of both crowds of gamers. This is no time for corporate rivalry to stand in the way of overall gamer content.

The gamers shouldn't have to suffer by being isolated to playing gamers based on what console that gamer is playing.

I'd agree this would be a good thing (in principle, if maybe not in practice - at least then we could legitimately shoot fanboys of whatever persuasion!), but it won't happen for various reasons. Live Anywhere is MS baby for playing PC-360, so that may just about happen for Haze (doubt it), but there's not a snowball in Hell's chance MS will work with the dreaded heathen (Sony) so we can all play together. What, you think this is about FUN?! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Re: The near-monopoly of Haze on PS3 - oh if that were true. If you look around, there are plenty of FPS games coming out on the PS3, (that doesn't mean they're any good, but Resistance looks good and COD 3, BIA:HH and UT 2007 are all out soon after launch). Haze will have competition.

If Haze was an exclusive to Ps3 I would buy the console just for tha tbut the game sfor ps3 are getting delayed and cancelled so I think I will wait until holiday 2007 to get one. But Im getting 360 for christmas so my answer is 360.

As it would cost me a good $600 to get my PC up-to-spec for something of HAZE's caliber ANYWAY... I'm going PS3.

I have a tendency to purchase PC-and-console games for the console anyway. That way I KNOW it'll work. No glitches or hardware incompatibilities... 29" screen rather than 17"... No-brainer to me. ^^

I'll probably get it for PS3. I would have gone with the PC version, but I think I'm pretty much done with Windows for now, for a number of rather serious reasons. I was considering keeping Windows around for gaming and entertainment purposes, but with two next-gen consoles in the house, it's not worth it to keep up with PC gaming at this point.

Which platform is the lead platform for HAZE anyway?

I have had a very turbulent love/hate affair with that game ever since I got my hands on it. On the one hand, there is a royal plethora of small to large issues that force me to literally pace around my pad in an effort to cool my anger towards the game. On the other hand, when I'm actually in the thick of a race, blasting at full clip between big rigs and trucks through a trench in my buggy, it's about as good as racing gaming gets. It's a very weird experience.

Crikey. Can't say it's angered me particularly; it's definitely a little rough around the edges (I've had several occasions where my vehicle has just blown up for no reason whatsoever), and my online experiences have involved a lot of waiting around only to witness a race full of vehicles teleporting from one side of the track to the other http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif), but you're bang on about the moments it gets right. Using the in-car view with the volume turned up nice'n'loud, and with a complete scrummage of vehicles all about you, it genuinely qualifies as a gaming experience unlike any I've ever had. Which is always something I look for in a new console. I don't really think Motorstorm is good enough to be a system seller - especially not when that system costs 425 - but it is a damn entertaining game. That's something these console launch titles can sometimes suffer from - their importance is ramped up to ridiculous levels and expectation gets so high that perfectly good games can end up being a 'disappointment'.

Played a bit of GTHD too - pretty shrug-worthy - but most annoying is I was expecting flow to be available, but it ain't. Tch.

Well, the "anger" thing might be a slight exaggeration. It's more of a frustration over these flaws, and I think the fact that it's so awesome in other ways really makes the flaws all the more apparent. It's like having these wonderful sundaes with small but frequent pieces of tripe in them. I like sundaes enough so that I'd put up with the odd piece of tripe, but I'd be grumbling about it the moment the sundae is gone.

MotorStorm is, in my opinion, the polar opposite of Resistance as far as the PS3 first wave games go. It's plagued by long load times and various minor to reasonably serious issues, but MotorStorm definitely has crazy OMFG appeal, and lots of it. Resistance on the other hand is very well crafted, polished and full featured, but for as much as I enjoyed it (especially the second half), I can't say I was ever really in awe of anything that played out in front of me. I thought a lot of it was intense, clever and well made, but never as exciting as the multi-vehicle tumbles in MotorStorm. If I was to demonstrate the PS3 to a friend (I'm indeed that much of a geek), I'd definitely throw in MotorStorm before Resistance.

As you say though it's probably not a system seller in itself, but it's definitely a good start. Reading the latest article regarding Uncharted from Naughty Dog also aids in justifying the cost, it's just a shame that game is so far away. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

I'd almost completely agree with you here Neko - there are a few problems, (chiefly the online being a little patchy, but my first afternoon worked fine so we'll see how it goes...), but overall it's a blast. GTHD - well there's only the time-trial anyway, and slow cars at first, but it's free and a decent graphical demo, (if not much more). I haven't played Resistance much at all, still trying to adapt my TSFP control-system to match it as closely as possible http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif although it's nice to see it has complete control over that, and the options avaiolable in online are comprehensive. I've only had one brief DM though, although I came fourth in that, which ain't too bad for me.

As I've been saying to various mates/clan-members, I've bought it now as much to stop waiting for the thing and to get in on the ground-floor as I have for the launch games. The real meat will come later this year, but so far I'm very happy with it. The only thing that seems to be missing, (more for others than myself), is the ability to invite/chat to buddies in different games, but I expect that will turn up sooner or later.

Flow's out in a couple of weeks I believe.

@Cob - don't worry mate, there'll be more games out for you by the time you get it, and it's only a couple of months off now right?

Oh, on PSN I'm: deded, if anyone wants to add me.

For a launch game it's impressive stuff.

Yeah, originality was probably never on the table (other than weapons), but it's certainly polished and complete. There's also a pretty surprising amount of depth to the story, or rather there are plenty of opportunities to learn more about the game world for those who are willing to look for it. The morse code, for example... it's a nice atmospheric elements, but it also serves a story telling purpose if you're up to translating it.

It also ramps up in quality pretty nicely around the halftime mark, as more and more wicked stuff is introduced to the game.

It's a shame the servers are still split between regions, but I guess they have to give the PAL gamers a fair chance to get a hang of the game before meeting the real competition.

Like new HAZE info, good things come to those and wait and all that...

Regarding Resistance, I think it's a decent game - I haven't played it the whole way through but what I have seen was polished and entertaining enough. But like Motorstorm, it suffers from launch title anxiety - it's good, but at launch people don't want 'good', they want 'amazing', and so as a result it's perhaps received some unfair negative attention.

Ah well, the PS3's time will come. Mainly when HAZE comes out. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The game really comes into its own in the third quarter if you ask me. Seems like the quality of the game increases in pace with the amount of sci-fi, which I guess isn't surprising given the track record of the developer. It seems to me as if they deliberately held things back for most of the game, presumably in some effort to keep it "realistic". I think the game could have benefited from being a little crazier, that might have been enough to give it that added edge that it's lacking.
