Default PS3 killer app?

When will there be one and what's it gonna be?

Even though Resistance is a very good game, it's not worth buying a PS3 for IMO.

MotorStorm is suppose to be good but most that have played the demo aren't raging about by any means. Assassins Creed should have been their killer app but now it most certainly won't be due to its cross platform launch months from now.

Sony really messed up on the software side of things on their launch I think.

My guess is Metal Gear Solid. This game better not have those total boring non-dialog stupid question marks pop above enemies heads and better not have stupid floating cheese rations laying around.

I was watching videos for Dark Sector. I think that looks great.
I haven't heard any word of it being for 360. Maybe that can be a killer app.

Maybe PS3 get no killer app.

Aside from the Metal Gear games.

Well, the PS2 was known for having the best platformers. Maybe we'll see a Ratchet and Clank, Sly Cooper, or Jak and Daxter before long.

Just guessing here, Lemon: your definition of killer app involves gunfire and blood, right?

So, Hidavi, you ever buy a PS3 to ebay like you had planned?

My guess is MGS4 will go to 360 in addition to PS3. Sony won't have enough penetration by next year to make up for the dev costs of this game.

Nope. My preorder was with Lik-Sang and they went bust and I wasn't about to wait 26+ hours in line for one either.

A killer app will come soon, but not for a long while. IF PS3 bought off Crysis, even though it still comes out for pc that would be an awesome killer app.

Well, not much sympathy from me since you were going to scalp it on ebay instead of keep it for yourself.

Hopefully I can find one before the middle of next year since I got rid of my PS2 thinking I'd be getting a PS3 soon to play all my PS2 games on.

I hope Sony doesn't continue with Sly, Ratchet and Jak. They've ran their course and Ratchet can only upgrade weapons so many times. I have all the games on my ps2 and they freakin' rock (Nintendo can learn a thing or two) - been there, done that.

Well, not really... maybe $20...

In some cases I would even disagree with that statement.

I had 2 friends over playing 360 and PS3, and they were genuinely impressed with some of the Resistance visuals. Epecially on levels with a simply outrageous draw distance/geometry/lots of action. Had the texture quality been just a smidgen better I don't think we would see as many complaints as we have.

What ever happened to crash and spyro? Those two figures were Playstations prime stars, then crash went to xbox, and spyro went to game cube.


Sony = Jak + Ratchet + sly

Nintendo = Link, Mario, samus

MS = Mater Chief , Marcus , Conker , Joanna Dark ,


I think MS wins the platform games here...

I am surprised that everyone in has failed to recognize at the very least..

Heavenly Sword.

God of War (Next gen GoW = pwn most likely)

Final Fantasy (any and all that WILL come to the PS3)

MGS4

Sony has quite a few other key franchises as well, sadly for myself.. 600 dollars does not feel right atm.. but perhaps when it gets cheaper I could see myself owning one for the aforementioned alone.
