    If Resident Evil 5 Outsells Killzone 2 what will you do? (partial ranting)

    Now ive been hyped for both these games for a while now (Killzone moreso) BUT something troubles me people are reporting reviewers nitpicking at Killzones epicness its only drawback being its story (supposedly) and with OPMs review of killzone and resident evil being the same (5/5) what im asking is if killzone is to sell less the obviously inferior resident evil what will you do? i personally will go out and sacrifice a casual gamer (JOKES) cause it proves that casual gamers pick brand>quality and that may ruin a games ability to flourish and expand into sequels

    I will still play K2?
    What kind of question is that?
    I surely won't drop on my knees crying if one outsells the other.....

    Overall (360+ps3), Re 5 will outsell Killzone 2 for sure. As for Ps3 only, hmmm.. the issue is Japan, they are not gonna buy Killzone2 in droves but they are pretty hyped about Re 5. As for the other regions, Killzone 2 can outsell RE 5 without too much trouble I think

    As for me, I cancel out since I preordered both

    Meh, does it really matter?

    Do you really care which game sells more?

    I'll be buying both that's all I know.

    Well, I wouldn't call people who buy RE 5 casual gamers ^^ Plus, if there is a threat to 'real' gamers, it sure doesn't originate from games like Re 5....
    You got the wrong culprit, you need his help`:

    What will I do? Obviously it would be the end of the world, so I probably would just kill myself.

    I will buy Killzone 2, play it, enjoy it, then if I get used to the demo a bit more, I may go pick up RE5 and play it. Who cares about who outsells the other? They are both going to make a ****load of money, and they both appeal to me. That's all that matters to moi.

    The REAL gamers will buy KZ2 if interested REGARDLESS of the casual...

    Unless you mean Devs will stop caring about big budget games and start creating a whole bunch of shovelware for the ''Casuals''... But even if this is what you mean... I hardly consider RE5 shovelware.

    EDIT: Darn it, Boulayman beat me to it!!!

    I would... congratulate Capcom? What a lame question. Who cares? Who says Killzone 2 is made for "hardcore" (whatever that even means) gamers? It looks like another generic first person shooter aimed at the HUGE Call of Duty fanbase to me.

    Besides, the awkward controls of RE5 don't appeal to the masses.

    Also, what's the difference between "hardcore" and "casual" gamers? More time spent sitting on an ever widening ***?

    no i mean look at it this way resident evil great series but completely changed to be more accessible to new gamers (ie the story not abt zombies) and further more if it sells more on the ps3 (sry to not put in title) it shows that an established brand which may or may not be ruined beats a most likely and very possible gem of a game like if i asked everyone on this forum about their opinion im sure majority would be pro killzone but if i stopped a random on the street theyd most likely say resident evil because its an established franchise and with growing dev costs forcing companies to accommodate for this demographic it may ruin a game real glory (im sry ppl just mad at RE 5 demo big letdown)

    Why do I care if one game outsells the other? If I'm enjoying that game, that's the last thing on my mind.

    If Killzone happens to be as good as everyone says it is, there should be no worries. Sequels will come.

    TS, you're not a gamer, just a fanboy.

    I mean what in the world made you whine about how RE5 (might) outsold K2? What the hell is wrong with that? How is RE5 is any less of a game to K2?

    Utterly ridiculous.

    Was that really necessary? Sheesh.....

    Don't worry about it man (Omen). It was kind of a pointless question, but we are all only human

    Achievements IT'S OVER 9000!
    Sales don't determine a games quality. So even though I would rather Killzone 2 outsell RE5, if it doesn't I won't be in an uprising.

    It doesn't matter to me. It's not like RE5 outselling KZ2 means it's better. And i expect it to outsell anyway, since it's multiplatform and it's a huge game.

    Do you mean just the PS3 SKU of RE5 or RE5 overall? Because RE5 overall will outsell KZ2 EASILY

    forcing what? id rather u think for yourself thats what makes life what is now im just expressing my feelings toward the industry as i see it im not telling you to boycott resident evil for all i care go buy 2 im just speaking my thoughts if you have such a big problem with that then whyd you even reply so if someone feels at all different from the ps3 forums community THEYRE the fanboy? like any one with a brain half as big as a sunflower seed could see that this thread wasnt meant to be taken seriously you unfortunately lack a brain entirely and as such can not contribute anything positive to the discussion at all so relax and take it easy you dont agree then you can simply put i dont agree and be done with it but you have to come across as a complete *** and act disrespectful its ppl like you that make me wish online didnt have voice chat

    I don't really care who outsell who. All I really care is killzone 2 sell at least 1.5 million copies or more. :]

    They deserved a lot of money for their hard work.

    I dont know why people would pre-order RE5 more than KZ2 unless they havnt played the demo. Infact I just pre-ordered my copy of KZ2 today. Especially after asking a friend of mine who already owns it how the game was.
