Figured I would start this now so people get an idea of who is getting the game. Vote changing is enabled.

For now I am voting for "Probably on the PS3, but I'm going to wait on feedback before buying," but since I am a well documented fool when it comes to these things, that could easily change to "yes."

Well I can't select one, because my vote is "YES - Day one but I don't know what system"

For now I guess I'll say day one PS3.

Isn't Brink some sort of home security system? Okay, I don't know WTF it is, so I put that one. Maybe I should read the 9 pages and find out....bbl.

Where is the "Hi my Name is Borlax, I will buy it and trade it in at substantial loss and purchase another game that I will trade in as well all within 10 days"?

You didn't see it? It is right under the "My name is Psalm, and I may get Brink as soon as I get a break from playing "Twilight: Scene It" on my Wii"

Day one for me since I put my angst toward Homefront to good use and got 2/3 of my money back and put it on a gift card.

Now I know why the Wii....."HAD" such a loyal following of Modern Warfare Reflex.

Because it was the only game out there we had to play..........There are soooo many different and new games coming out for the 360 and the PS3....that it almost seems overwhelming... #:-s

I am totally shocked by the number of people who seem intent on buying yet another game on day one. It was less than a month ago that we all went trotting out to our local gaming stores to hand over $60 for Homefront. Brink looks like it could be very interesting, but there is NO way that I am going to get it on day one. I'm not even sure I will buy BF3 on day one......ok, maybe that's going a bit far, but you get the general idea.

I think you would be seeing almost all "Day one" if it wasn't for HF and BO launch fails.

That is precisely my point (not to mention MoH...between those three games I shelled out $180 and got crap in return).

The only reason I'm saying day 1 for this is Blockbuster gives 75% trade on any game within 14 days of it's launch. It's pretty much the same as renting it.

Well I am a betting man and have been following Brink for some time. I have been hearing good things from those who have played early versions and am willing to bite the bullet for something that looks pretty unique.

I heard good things from early previews about BO, and the reviews still say it was great. Unfortunately, apparently none of these people played it on the PS3.

The first reviews about HF were very positive. The ones after launch were more accurate in their criticism, but still none of them commented on the freezing and server issues, because they hadn't happened yet.

I have come to the conclusion that 95% of reviewers either don't know what they are talking about, are getting bribed to give good reviews, or, most likely, can't adequately review a new game prior to launch because they only play one version of the game (which ever version the devs know works the best) and can't comment on the post release problems at the time they write their review.

In short, I have learned that when it comes to online multi-player games, professional reviews don't mean much. What means a lot to me is other gamers, especially MPs, telling me whether the game actually works or not.

I don't mind putting my money down on a game that I enjoy. It doesn't have to be the most popular game (HF) but as long as I like it, I'm cool if others don't like it. HF is a perfect example of this. I actually enjoy the game, even though it sucks. :))

I actually liked HF when I rented it. The SP sucked, but I thought the MP was pretty good. I never experianced any of the problems that ended turning people off but I only put in about 4 or 5 hours with the MP and never tried joining up with others. My problem with HF was it was yet another modern combat game and it just seemed like a poor mans Modern Warfare. It was like it was trying too hard to mix CoD and BF which might seem good in theory but they are two very different experiances. I think it's just obvious that THQ is B level publisher and Kaos is a B level developer who were in way over their heads. I think people would have been far more patient with the game if;
1. They released it as $39.99 game
2. Hadn't over-hyped the crap out of it

Problem is they wanted to cash in fast. Had they not over-hyped it, released it as a "budget" title and gave it support they could have used as a testing ground for building a top level follow-up with HF2.

For Brink I like that they are not going out and marketing the crap out of it other than some banners on gaming sites. Bethesda has a pretty good record for supporting games they publish. Plus with Spash Damage being a newer developer like Kaos, Bethesda is not banking on Brink being their major release this year (Elder Scrolls will be the game that makes or breaks their books this year) so SD has very little pressure on them other than building a solid game. They know this is a "tryout" for them and will dictate how much Bethesda will invest in them for their next game. THQ put too much into how much HF would sell. With a new IP you need to put the focus on the product and not what numbers you'll make during the first week. If they had given Kaos some of that marketing money to use for development, who knows what HF would have looked like.

I also like the idea that your MP and SP progress ties together and lets you not have to rely on bad pub matches to determine your success.

No, it is a new FPS that looks awesome -- which is why it isn't coming to the Wii. :p

Hopefully it will work as advertised -- which is another reason it will not be coming to the wii :smug:

Really? Since the latest patch, apparently BO on the PS3 works okay, whereas it still sounds like you guys on Wii are having issues with invites, the party system, and general connection problems. At least, it sounds like it from your posts ;)

Sure, the PS3 version still had crappy hit detection and lag issues, but it sounds like the Wii version does, too, but you probably don't notice the lag as much since there is no kill cam to show you how bad the lag is.

I was really looking forward to getting this for the PS3 and getting in some multiplayer on the PS3 side. But I've been waiting for this game for more than a year. If Sony comes out and explains what happened, then I may go back to getting it on the PS3.

Changed my vote to Day one on the 360 (but only b/c Blockbuster will give 75% store credit if the game is returned within 14 days). I still might wait a few days or a week to see what others think. I was going to get it for the PS3, but it's now looking like the PSN could be down for a while.
