Resistance 2 vs Killzone 2

Online

Resistance 2

60-player matches via PlayStation Network immediately set Resistance 2 apart, not just from Killzone 2, but any shooter out there. The 32-player bouts in the original game were complete bloodbaths, so nearly doubling the player cap is only going to increase the chaos. Multiplayer in the first Resistance was often so out of control that you'd re-spawn only to get fragged seconds later. Fortunately, Insomniac is addressing this issue by encouraging squad-based tactics in these new 60-player matches.

New modes will undoubtedly make their way into the mix, joining popular ones like deathmatch and breach. Of course, if you'd rather avoid the huge competitive rounds there's always an 8-player cooperative mission. Resistance 2 will be the first game to ever feature it. Interestingly enough, Price describes online coop consisting of unique missions instead of simply remixing the single player campaign. All of this comes packed with a slew of online features including clans and experience points.

Killzone 2

Killzone 2's multiplayer details haven't been revealed

As for Killzone 2, little is known about what it will offer on the multiplayer side of the equation. Looking at what was available in the first game we can make an intelligent projection as to what the sequel will offer. PlayStation Network supports a wider range of features than previously possible so expect a larger maximum player count and expansive maps. Beyond this, we're in the dark as to what Killzone 2 will bring to the table.

Edge: Resistance 2

Resistance 2 handily takes this category. Without concrete details on what Killzone 2 will offer, it can't stay competitive in the face of a smorgasbord of features and 60-player matches. There's no question that the multiplayer in Resistance: Fall of Man surpassed the original Killzone – that alone gives Resistance 2 the edge.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
