    Man I'm dying to play this, and thankfully I don't get motion sickness. Still I doubt a friend of mine could play it for more than 5 minutes :) 
    Gotta hurry up and get that PS3.

    I will get this if the Demo is good, nice change from the typical FPS.

    Which means that we will have this and Wipeout next Thursday/Wednesday. I love this Generation of gaming.

    "There's no word on when we can expect to see that exclusive downloadable content for the PS3 version, either, but we'll keep you posted."

    I guess Sony's playing the "pay for exclusive DLC" now as well. For shame! The game is available on both systems, why shouldn't the DLC?

    Looked pretty cool from what I saw from E3 and downloaded some videos off Xbox Live that looked nice. It'll be an interesting game to try and play and see if I end up with motion sickness. I'm usually fine, but this one looks crazy. I think it's going to help with the whole, freaked out by heights thing too.

    Im hoping the hand to hand combat in this game raises the bar a little for shooters. Game looks like it's gong to be a refreshing good time

    I'll give the demo a try on the PS3 or 360, but I'll probably wait until the game hits the PC to purchase it. I tend to get motion sick from some FP games on the PC, and from all the FP games on consoles. :(

    So this game is kinda like a first person Prince of Persha, kinda?

    Anywho, I saw a video of the game in action and that stuff looks awsome-sause. Glad they havent made you completely defenceless in the game too.

    It also reminded me of this game that came out for the original Xbox. I remember thinking it was cool but disorienting. I forgot the name of it, but everything you did (and I do mean everything) was in FPS. From drinking a soda, to puking in the toiler. When you kicked and punched, you'd see it from the eyes of the character. Is was pretty damn cool, but took a bit to get used to.

    Breakdown. Myself and Smang have been playing bits of that recently. I need to go back to it, the fighting is fucking awesome. POW POW POW!

    Breakdown is awsome! The gun combat wasnt that great sadly, shouldnt have to use an auto aim to shoot hmph, but anyways, the whole experience to the game was phenomenal!

    Yup, that's the one. I was going to say Crackdown, but that's a GTA clone. Breakdown was amazing. And Edge looks to capture that "you ARE the character" very well also. I can't wait for next Thursday. It will be Xmas in September.

    Oh and Totally offtopic (but not worth starting a new thread), but I think Samurai Showdown 2 is out on Live, but I haven't gotten a chance to check.
