Full Sega Press Release, Here:SEGA ANNOUNCES FULL AUTO 2: BATTLELINES EXCLUSIVELY FOR SONY'S PLAYSTATION 3 CONSOLE
Sequel to Award-winning Full Auto Features Strategically Destructible Street Environments to Deliver the Next Generation of Combat-Racing
SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON (May 2, 2006) - Get ready for the next generation of vehicular mayhem... SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd. today announced that Full Auto™2: Battlelines is being developed exclusively for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. Full Auto 2: Battlelines puts high-speed vehicles outfitted with weapons and armor into fully realized and fully destructible urban street environments. Fierce combat-racing will ensue as you strategically use destruction to win races as well as leave massive devastation in your wake. Players can destroy the environment to dynamically change track conditions to block competitors, open new paths, or crush opponents with falling debris caused by well-timed missiles. Full Auto 2: Battlelines, which is the sequel to the award-winning Full Auto, also introduces a new Arena Mode featuring team play and six different levels, each specifically designed for a unique type of multiplayer car combat.
"The destructible environments in Full Auto 2: Battlelines are both stunning and strategic, especially in multiplayer combat," said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "The gameplay innovations of tactical destruction and team multiplayer vehicular mayhem combined with the tremendous power of Sony's PLAYSTATION 3 console makes this sequel truly the next generation of combat racing."
Very interesting. I didn't see this coming for PS3 ever, much less exclusive. Perhaps they'll get it right with PS3.
Right now I don't have huge confidence in Sega, but they're just the publisher. Pseudo is developing it. I hope they change my mind.
Hmm... why do I get the feeling that companies are now messing with us consumers. Just changing small gameplay mechanics here n there, add some levels and cars or characters and add a 2 or 7() in the titles end. Are we getting shortchanged with sequels that are only a year in development after their 1st run?
Don't jump on me yet, I'm just wondering. I'm open to changing my thinking once I see some actual screenshots that look marginally better than the Full Auto 360 version.
it makes no mention of any launch date, and there is nothing wrong with them going ahead on a sequel... better than a port, right? It may be rushed, it may not. Too soon to tell.
Oh hell yea! My mind is pleased to know that I got a sequel instead of the same old rehashed title from X360.Originally Posted by frosty
But generally speaking. After reading about two games that have such short lifespans to generate/work on sequels(though admitting no launch date was revealed,), lets imagine close to launch, I think we should be critical of anything that tries to pass up as a sequel yet is only the old game with some new clothes on. Don't you agree?
Not saying that these games are not better than the original. Just saying that is it enough time on a sequel? It's kind of the same thing like how current-gen games were suped up a lil bit to be passed up as next-gen games.
LMAO, YAY! we get a sequel to a craptastic game... WEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
there is only one car combat game and its name is Twisted Metal.
First was not all that good but I do like games like this so I'll give the series another chance.
The premise and features both sound very good. It sounds like a game that both my wife and I would enjoy playing. But we'll have to see what they can actually pull off.
Since it is an exclusive, hopefully Pseudo is doing a fresh start design with only the title and general idea being held over from previous versions.
Full Auto was fun for like, 10 minutes, then it became repetitive and just boring. The graphics were pretty sweet (expected), and I liked the whole crash reversal thing, but it needs to be pretty different fundamentally from the first game to succeed. Interesting that Sega would all the sudden just move the franchise/games over to the opposing system, though -- why even bother with the change?
I liked fullauto, however, not worthy of a purchase. There is definite potential in the idea of the game although it lacks in gameplay options and dynamics. Hopefully these issues will be addressed when it is launched for the PS3.
I could care less about the game from waht I saw of it on X2...
talking about games jumping ships; in times like these (new system releases) this is normal really. remember the huge Sega exlusives for Box and Capcom's Dino Crisis? funy that we saw the last of all those games. O_o

Why a PS3 exclusive though? Didn't it sell well on 360? These are the questions on my mind. Will this happen more and more with games as PS3 nears release date? I wonder if this is a trend that will continue in the future or is it just a localized thing?
These are all possible factors, though I kinda doubt the cash thing. I think the system is just to uniqe and making games for both 360 and PS3 is cost prohibative. But I may be wrong, who knows?
not even really excited about this game... It's not that big a deal, it got pretty average scores.
I agree with this statement, but I still wonder, why the exclusivity? It is just strange when the game sold well on 360.Originally Posted by LaLiLuLeLo2003
This announcement reminds me of Namco's Ridge Racer 7 announcement. Although I have more faith on the RR team.
Hmm, lets see:
4/25 - Virtua Tennis
4/26 - Super Monkey Ball
4/27 - World Pool 07
4/28 - Sega Rally
5/02 - Full Auto 2
Come on Sega, give us something highly worth to talk about. Here hoping for Panzer Dragoon, a non-NFL football game, Shenmue, or a next-gen entry of Ryu Ga Gotoku (why not? it was rumored in Famitsu and Full Auto 1 just came out).
Isn't David Jaffe leaving GOW2 to someone else (director)? If he's working on another projects, I hope Twisted Metal is one of em.Originally Posted by ddaryl
