- Engine is nearly 1:1 from PS3 version
- They added a few new gimmicks to the engine, so they can utilize more PS Vita
- Game is gorgeous, clear and crispy textures, big draw distances
- Character models are awesome, the same with animation
- Stable FPS even with gigantic action inside levels
- Literally - game is like portable Killzone 3, looking better than Uncharted (PS Vita).

I'm excited, but I also want to hear about the multiplayer of the title.

@Below yeah I know, it's just that after beating and playing the MP of KZ3 I was expecting more from them rather than a downgraded system. Good game, but compared to 2 MP it wasn't so good.

Not expecting the Vita to be like 2 or anythign, I have faith that they'll be able to deliver what people wanted from with COD ( a fun, fully functionaly MP)

the developers are Guerrilla themselves after all and not some 3rd rate 3rd party developer.
PirateThom  +   670d ago
This is the biggest positive.

This year will see titles from both Guerulla and Media Molecule on Vita and we can only hope more Sony developers do the same.

The developers are NOT Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge are. Quality is assured with them, no worries. :D
dedicatedtogamers  +   669d ago
The advantage of this game is that we've seen a little bit of what a shooter can be on the Vita with Resistance and with Black Ops Declassified. However, neither of those games were outstanding, just decent.

But with Killzone Mercenary, they've had the time to develop it, they're not rushing the game just to make it a launch title, and I'm sure the final product will show. It will be one of the first non-launch-window AAA exclusives for the Vita.
chazjamie  +   669d ago
Nah dude declassified and resistance were anything but decent. They up there with ridge racer. 3 of the worst games to ever grace the vita.

I can't wait to see gameplay footage.

And for it being a portable killzone 3 well,even though i find it hard to believe it wouldn't be tooshocking though.
Back when the Vita was called the NGP there were small shots of it.

Around mid-late 2012 i believe they released a trailer showing what i think is a early beta.

So given that knowledge they been working on it for nearly a year and by GG.
I can't wait to see the results of all that work :D

yeah it look great on vita and i agree it look better than uncharted (vita)
KwietStorm  +   669d ago
But the only thing "better" about Killzone 3 was controls and response. SO MUCH other content was removed for whatever reason. I know the disagrees are coming, and I can't understand how people can deny it. People didn't like the weight and sluggishness of KZ2. Fine, I get that. But again, they scrapped pretty much everything else that gave it its identity previously. I'm not sure what you mean about bringing what people wanted from COD, etc.

I felt the same way about the subtractions made from Uncharted 2 to 3. Especially Single player bonuses. Thats what made the game soooooo replayable. It was a let down for me for sure as Single player was the main reason I play uncharted.

Thankyou for the list. I for one am really looking forward to buying this game! It'll be nice to hype up a Vita game.

I think what would be a good idea for Sony is if every development studio they have has a team for ps4,ps3 games and a team for Vita games.

It's good in theory but it probably means they have to hire more people and create more teams which costs money.

They've recently shut down some studios so I doubt they're going to be looking to employ more people.
Godchild1020  +   669d ago
They shut down studios, but made second teams in most, if not all of their already established studios.

This game will be the best portable FPS ever made hands down. Killzone is the Halo killer. Sony knows this so they are going to put everything they have behind this game. My body is ready.
FanMan  +   670d ago
dont be foolish. this could easily turn into vita cod or resistance. (although i hope not) and killzone isnt a halo killer.

cjflora  +   670d ago
What was wrong with Resistance on the Vita? I quite enjoyed it.
SandWitch  +   669d ago
Sure it might be another Resistance, but this time it's very doubtful. Guerilla Cambridge is way more professional studio than Nihilistic.

@cjflora > I agree, Resistance was totally playable and I quite enjoyed it too, but undoubtedly it needed a lot more work/polish.

I agree. I actually enjoyed both Resistance & COD on Vita.
While maybe lacking in polish, they were still very playable & entertaining.

Can't wait for Killzone tho. It was the reason I bought a Vita in the first place. Hoping for a Killzone themed Vita bundle.

What does Halo have to do with this?
ThatGuy2  +   670d ago
Killzone is not even close to the popularity halo has ...
smashman98  +   669d ago
Lol apparently you're wrong

Let me try and be right

Halo is the least popular series in the world

He's not serious. At least about the "Halo killer". People who took that seriously are fools to give him exactly what he wants.

1) A handheld game has nothing to do with the success of a console game.
2) He's probably on MS's marketing team trying to plug Halo into unrelated topics under the guise of trolling.
3) Mark him for trolling and ignore him (there's an ignore feature on this site).

Resistance is better than killzone well at least Resistance 1. That is a true halo killer when it came to game play.
fourOeightshark  +   669d ago
Resistance had so much potential to be big like Halo.
extermin8or  +   669d ago
And then insomniac went backwards in terms of gameplay in Resistance 2 :( (still a great game though) and then redeemed themselves with Resustance 3- although it's multiplayer still wasn't as good as fall of man, then due to resistance 2 no one bought it whixh was a shame as Resistance 3 was freat- however Nihilistic released the shocking vita game and that was one of if not the final nail in the coffrn :L

So youre saying Killzone 1 on the PS2 wasnt a true killzone game? Come on man, its a new killzone game where not only the helghasts are the enemies but now the ISA as well :D
NewVegasTroop  +   670d ago
"where not only the helghasts are the enemies but now the ISA as well :D" -- O_o something just occurred to me... what if GG is testing the waters (per se) into making the ISA the bad guys? for them to later make every Killzone fan wish come true... HELGHAST CAMPAIGN!!!
Pillage05  +   669d ago
Actually, I'd prefer to play as ISA. The helghast are the more interesting enemy to be looking at the entire game. 10 hours of shooting isa character models would be boring, me thinks.

I know you're not alone in thinking that, though. I just don't understand peoples fascination with playing as helghast. I'd rather have a more interesting enemy.
Veneno  +   669d ago
@Pilage 05

Good point. But maybe they can redesign the look of the ISA somehow into something more distinguishing and gritty. Maybe they can work into the story somehow that the ISA soldiers are taking performance enhancing drugs that mutate them somehow. Like ultra steroids.
SAE  +   670d ago
Gonna buy it day one . im keeping money for it from today . but i hope it's cheap . cod / assassin are really really expensive . the games should be 10-15BD but they cost 23BD >.< . that's a lot because the games are shorter / less content/ lower graphics / lower gameplay quality ..etc then the ps3 versions. they even take less time/budget to be created . that's unfair and one of the reasons im annoyed of how sony handle the vita ..

anyway . cant wait for it :P ..
CrimsonSquall  +   670d ago
I would expect a $50 USD price tag for this game, just based on the fact of it being a first party game and it is one of their flagship franchises

Should be 45 to 40 dollars though....
Sandmano  +   669d ago
I would gladly play full price but dont give me Nihillistic crap and expect me to pay full price
gijsbrecht  +   669d ago
I will gladly pay 50 Euro or USD if the quality is high. But indeed not when it is something like Declassified. That was a let down for me personally.

Both of your points were applied to the PS3, but yet it still beat the 360 in both sales and quality and quantity of titles. Keep laughing nervously troll.
Axecution  +   669d ago
I totally love my Vita. I really do, but he's kind of right. Almost every single game that's on the Vita that matters has been given away for free on Playstation Plus save for some solid gems like LittleBigPlanet, which even that had a ridiculous discount for PS Plus xD. How are they even gonna get sales if everything it free LOL

Im not complaining lmao i love it (Ninja Gaiden Sigma is free this Tuesday! =D ) but it sort of shows how small the library really is considering it's been out for as long as it has. Also why would anybody buy any of the $40+ games when they're free after a few weeks anyway?

lmao i probably wont buy Killzone cause it'll just be free or discounted to 10 dollars 3 weeks after launch. I spent 40 bucks on Uncharted, Gravity Rush, and WipEout just to have them go free. Kinda grinded my gears XD

Anyone seen those new screenshots from some Russian magazine or some shit.

Holy Fuck this game looks amazing on the Vita. I cannot wait to play this crap. If it looks half as good as those screenshots I will pee myself in excitement.

I already have my money saved for all these upcoming Vita games, a good start for 2013 for the Vita if you ask me.

For not even knowing Russian hey at least I was close.. I know the polish are around there some what close region wise.

So I just took a stab in the dark but I knew that it could have been something else, just described it as familiar as I had known which it looked Russian to me.

Are there bigger screenshots? I really can't tell the graphics to be honest (trailer showed enough however).

profgerbik  +   670d ago
Not that I know of I guess if you had the magazine it would be much easier to see than that small image but even from that it looks really good for a portable game.

It's not that hard for me to see but yes it is small. I mean I can see it fairly well but I guess that could depend more on what we are both viewing it on.

You could possibly try and find if you can download that issue of the magazine through a PDF or something then you could probably see them better.

remanutd55  +   670d ago
I'm pretty excited about this game and i hope the 16 players online multiplayer is true. Vita needs to start flexing its muscles, i think the system needs an online only multiplayer game ala Warhawk.
Adolph Fitler  +   669d ago
Yep, I really enjoyed Resistance on the Vita as well. I mean, considering it wasn't made by Insomniac, & also was rushed to make it for/near Vita's launch, I was pleasantly surprised by it's quality.....especially after all I'd heard was bad things about it.
I mean, it is the best portable fps in existance, & that is going up against NDS,3DS Metroid games.
Resistance is a great little, early Vita title, & the fact that it is able to be played with 2 analogue sticks, makes it far better from a strictly gameplay experience than all other portable fps comers so far.

I love the Killzone franchise, & I believe that Killzone Vita will take that top spot that Resistance: BS currently holds, as portable fps king.

I just hope, this game shines, along with those few others like Tearaway, The Puppeteer & this game shine enough to start moving Vita's from store shelves, as I was not much of a fan of portable systems, I mean I had GB's, DS's & even the PSP, which was the best to date at delivering that FULL, console type experience, as opposed to feeling like a portable game device with those cheaper, quick hit, shallow game catologues, but even PSP still exuded that handheld stigma, hugely because of the controls.
I went out on a limb & bought a Vita, & I tell you, that 2nd analogue stick was & still is holding back any system that doesn't have one.
All the games were used to playing, from bashing them out on our home console controllers, just feel so much more natural & better to play, just due to that one feature....that one extra stick.
Then add the rear touchpads, front touchscreen & the overall feel, comfort in the hands, & large widescreen, power, & you have just a superior looking, feeling & functioning little handheld console.

Cyrax4  +   669d ago
The Killzone series has some of the WORST voice acting & dialogue in gaming. No, really, it's absolutely horrible. Whoever is in charge of the English localization should be fired.

Sad that Bioshock has been out since 2007 (approaching 6 damn years) and no other FPS has even come close to matching it's storytelling.

Anyway, it's a mediocre franchise with pretty graphics. I remember chuckling in the summer of 2009 when I went online and saw that the Killzone 2 lobby was nearly deserted. So much hype for a game, and it failed so hard. Aside from a couple nods for graphics, it failed miserably when critics handed out awards at the end of the year.

Oh great more scaled down ps3 games on my vita...that's not why I bought a vita, I bought a vita to play games that I can't play on my ps 3 yet every time I look around they are releasing portable ps3 games. I like my vita but I want to love my vita. That's not going to happen if I keep getting series from ps3 on my vita! I need original games like gravity rush on my vita. I'm going to give Sony til the end of the year to make me feel like spending 350$ was a good move and if not then I'm selling it
MasterCornholio  +   669d ago
Well thats the future of handheld gaming is portable console games. Its normal for this to happen to the incredible advancement in handheld technology. If you want to play watered down handheld games just stick to your smartphone and you will be just fine.

He said he wants to play original games like gravity rush which is definitely not a watered down game. I would like both original games and "ps3" games as I do not own a PS3.
violents  +   669d ago
It's not a ps3 game on the vita, It's a vita only game with a quality level on par with that of the previously made PS3 games. Realistically I would assume the graphics may be slightly dumbed down, but if it looks better than Uncharted GA then bring it on fool cause that game looked awsome. But either way you have to support the first party games because they are the ones that know how to really work with the system the best and show the 3rd party what its capable of, and if they move units with some high quaity titles we will get even more third party support and eventually we will have lots of original IPs to choose from as well as vita versions of popular franchises.

BTW if you havent yet gravity rush was an excellent game for the vita, and I hear LBP vita really does it some justice as well. I personally loved the MGS HD remakes of 2 and 3. Oh and Uncharted was cool too.
G20WLY  +   669d ago
Just so you know, Killzone came out on PS2 and subsequently PSP - BEFORE PS3 - so strictly speaking it's not a PS3 game, it's a Playstation game.

Also, you don't want to play PS3 games on your Vita, huh? You want games like Graivty Rush?? lol, Gravity Rush WAS a PS3 game, which they moved development to Vita fairly late in the cycle! Maybe that's why you love it so much; because it's a console quality game on a handheld! :P
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   669d ago
That's right I DON'T wanna play PS 3 games on my vita is that a problem? And u don't need to school me on killzones origins because I'm sure I'm older than you and no all about killzone. I've owned them all and beat them all. If you people don't mind that all of vistas major releases have been ps3 series games then I feel bad for u. I want originality out of my vita other wise its just a mini ps3 which I don't want. Stop being sheep

I don't know how exactly you're sure you're older than me, or why you feel it matters, but if it makes you feel superior, I'll go along with it.

You're probably far more intelligent than me too. And better looking and richer - hell I bet your sh!t smells less bad than mine. This must be true, as I'm apparently a sheep, because I pointed out the obvious, which you clearly missed, smh & lmao!

It's great to see so many comments being made, the Vita faithful are still burning strong, it is time brothers for the Vita to shine, this year it's fate will be decided. Also, just wanted to clear up some confusion, the majority of the foundational work and design of this game was handled by Guerilla Cambridge, but after the recent examples of Resistance Burning Skies and COD Black Ops Declassified, Guerilla Games took over the last few polishings and refinements to make sure the game would turn out the way they wanted it to, a very intelligent move.

well my favorite genres are action/adventure, platforming and racing but i do enjoy some shooters from time to time and i dont see whats wrong with people highly anticipating Killzone Mercenary and if you are not then why are you doing commenting here? you dont see me commenting on xbox, wii or 3ds articles, why? because i dont care, simple as that lol.

Hopefully the one thing not ported was Killzone 3's ridiculous ending that ruined the entire trilogy.
Ultr  +   669d ago
I can see what you mean, but. There is something about the story in Killzone 3 that is very special.

In the intro radec kills a soldier, why is that?
Why does Visaris daughter look at him like he is not the person he should be? I mean she smiles, but then as Visari takes her hand, she goes back and has a strange look in her face? Like if she realised that its not her father???

AND WHO was that guy that came out of the container? Maybe Visari itself??????

I cant wait for Killzone4
Jek_Porkins  +   669d ago
Sounds like they are doing the right things here, I enjoyed the Killzone game on the PSP, which I only recently bought and finished, but the third person aspect threw me off. Glad they are going with first person and keeping the quality up.

Hopefully they bundle this game with the Vita and a memory card for under $200. I'd buy something like that for the price. I just cant afford $250+$50(game)+$50 (Memory card).

I would love a Vita, but with new consoles launching this year I have to be careful with what I spend, I'm more of a home console guy than a handheld guy.
