The disagrees are no more stupid than bubbling up "Can't wait" as a "Well Said" comment.
SilentNegotiator  +   253d ago
When people disagree with a comment like that, it's because they themselves don't agree with the sentiment. And that's okay; just breathe and let it go that a small, small minority don't feel the same way.
rainslacker  +   253d ago
He actually doesn't have to wait. He can go buy the game now.:)

Assuming he lives in NA of course.

What's so great about that KZ shooter? We've seen 1st person shooters like this 100 times before. I don't get it :D
I guess people have to be hyped for it because there is basically no other game?

"He actually doesn't have to wait. He can go buy the game now.:)"

Thx for the reminder. Target has KZ and a few other titles being released today in the states with the 3 for 2 deal. I have to stop on my way home and pick them up.

Since we are debating what can't wait vs actually is waiting means. I will simply say the days are crawling by while awaiting greatness. Just 2 MORE DAYS TO GO and then it's off to Best Buys midnight launch!

@ brutal or anyone else going to Target

Dopey associates there mislabeled Knack for $39.99. So I bought it separately this morning and grabbed another game in the b2g1 free deal. I'd call your local Target and check to see if they corrected the price yet. Might be worth a trip on someone's lunchbreak to save an extra $20

Thx for the heads up. I will check Knacks price. I'm headed to Target right now while on break.

killzone is actually better then call of duty.
rainslacker  +   252d ago
@Brutal

I got KZ last week when it became available. Gonna pick up Knack tomorrow from GS unless Target has it for $39.99 like someone above reported, in which case I'll get my deposit back. Amazon has shipped my collector's edition of AC4.

I took advantage of the Amazon B2G1 promotion to get NFS:Rivals, Lego:MSH, and NBA2K.

Might head to target Friday morning before work to see if they have 3 more games I want to pick up. Gotta love getting an much bigger than expected bonus the week of a console launch.:)

Unfortunately I don't know if there are three more games that I want to get right now. Maybe Madden and Injustice, but can't think of a third...stupid Watch Dogs delay.:(

i dont understand why you got disagrees with that comment. its like they are jealous that they wont be getting it on a certain console

I can't wait for this game to blow me......away
christrules0041  +   253d ago
Alot of my friends play COD. I'm pretty sure they are pissed at me that on the midnight launch the first game I'm going to play is Killzone Shadowfall. They even went as low to say "I was told Killzone is alright" and when I told her that Planetside 2 in early 2014 is releasing she said that I should wait a month until it's half off. LMFAO. About tomclear my friends list out because they can't except I play higher quality games then COD.

That's awesome I'm so damn happy we can play the game while the update loads up:) 3 more days!!!!!!
The_Villager  +   253d ago
"The technology behind the PlayStation 4 has allowed Guerilla Games to vastly reduce load times in Killzone: Shadow Fall, according to managing director Hermen Hulst."

If the technology is so great then why can't the PS4 read discs instead of having mandatory game installs? That 500 GB hard drives is no better than the Wii U's 32 GB if we get all these game installs (Killzone: Shadowfall, 45 GB required. Knack, 37 GB required).

So there's next to no advantage getting physical based games as compared to digital versions, and vice-versa.
isa_scout  +   253d ago
Unless you have a ultra fast internet connection there is still a clear advantage as you don't have to wait(in my case about 3 days) to download a 45GB game before you can start playing. I actually like the fact that the game is read from the hard drive. It'll make games perform better and be hella lot more smooth, and this is something both Sony and MS are implementing. Thats a big reason why there are no load times.
I do agree though about the hard drive size. Would've been awesome if the PS4 came with a 1TB hard drive.
Looks like I'll be upgrading my hard drive a little sooner than I anticipated.
Hicken  +   253d ago
Oh, there are advantages. A physical game has its advantages, such as not taking up as much HDD space(generally speaking), being more easily transferrable(buying, selling, trading, loaning), and there's always the whole collectible factor.

Digital games are more efficient(I highly doubt even the new Blu Ray drive is running upwards of 7200 RPM) and less space-consuming, among other things.

Besides, I seem to recall that games can read off both the disc and the HDD at the same time. Don't quote me on that, though.
Maxor  +   253d ago
I hope Sony add external HD support because laptop drives in the 2TB range are both slow and expensive.
solidsheep  +   253d ago
Wow gamers can be such divas. How about just delete a game your going to have room for around 13 games. Is it really that hard to delete one?
christrules0041  +   253d ago
Actually it does have advantages playing it off of the hard drive. Once the game is installed onto the hard drive the blu ray reader only needs to spin the disc up to read the key. Then it doesn't have to spin the disc anymore so it actually runs quieter off of the hard drive. The blu ray reader gets less wear and tear since it only needs to install the game and of coarse get the key. Since all of the data is on the hard drive the loading screen is dramatically improved and not to mention you don't need a whole crap load of loading screens. Playing games off of the current gen discs worked well but with games being so much more data on next gen reading all that data from the disc to render a scene would cause an absolute ton of wear and tear on the blu ray drive.

Once Killzone Shadowfall is installed on the hard drive it takes 15 seconds from when you put in the disc till until you can play your character. Unlike the what 2 minute The Last of Us boot up time on the PS3.
SniperControl  +   253d ago
All data on the disc is cached onto the HDD during game play, once you have finished your gaming session, the cached data will be deleted, ready for the next game.
tontontam0  +   253d ago

showtimefolks  +   253d ago
KZ:SF the only FPS truly built for next gen from ground up

The story trailer was really interesting. Been a long time fan of KZ and I really hope this is the best one in the series
Zefros  +   253d ago
agreed, just startet playing kz2 again, will finish it and kz3 to prepare for kz: shadow falls. But one thing that really struck me, killzone 2 looks so damn good, i would even say it is still the best looking game alonside last of us and uncharted. it's so smooth and crisp looking, i was a bit shocked after seeing it again after such a long time!
showtimefolks  +   253d ago
Zefros

i spend months with KZ online, to be honest never finished the story. Was on last few missions and it got really hard

it had great graphics
a story that makes sense and long 10 plus hours
Challenging AI
and those same graphics in online matches
warzone one of the best online modes

KZ3 was really good and got a lot of unwanted hate

The argument is always halo is better but why can't we enjoy both?

oh and i agree best looking game on PS3 period even better than UC or last of us. The first time you play KZ2 the early cut scene that shows you the whole war damn just gorgeous

cpayne93  +   253d ago
It would definitely be nice if loading was reduced. My first experiences with gaming were on the n64, in those days you were playing the game withing seconds of flipping on the power.
SaffronCurse  +   253d ago
Technology was simpler back then and not as complex as it is today.
Superherox70  +   253d ago
No it's the fact that it loaded from a cartridge ps1 and Saturn had horrible load times. Simpler technology lol what are you 12?
HardcoreDaBoss  +   253d ago
cartridges loaded much faster. I always thought it would be cool if they just kept making them for games but having the storage like flash drives or sd cards. the read write speeds for them now are crazy compared to discs. I also noticed they freeze way less.
Sevir  +   253d ago
The thing is you have to print cartridges, and it it was simply way more expensive to do that with them.

I'm glad that with all this complexity theyve managed to eliminate the loading to a great degree.

30 seconds to press "X" and jump right into the game is fantastic...

Battlefield 4 takes 35 seconds from insert to game intro... So this is fantastic
I_AM_ CANADIAN_1989  +   252d ago
Did you even blow ? Did you even wiggle ? Are you even a 90's gamer ? . Half the time older well used cartridge games wouldn't even boot let alone fast cause you had to wiggle the cartridge around then blow on it for who knows how long lol not fun. Haha looking at a guy that had NES, Super Nintendo, psone slim, Xbox, ps3, xbox 360 and I'd say I'd prefer the so called slower but resilient and reliable Blu-ray Disc out of all the above listed options. And thanks for bringing back the horrible traumatizing cartridge flash backs lol

^Dunno about the nes but with my snes and n64 I never had to blow more than once. I still use my n64 actually, works just as well today as it did when I bought it.
Battlefieldlover  +   253d ago
@super. What is more simple? Disc drive or cartridge? Who's 12?
I_AM_ CANADIAN_1989  +   252d ago
Sony budgeted slower 5400rpm 2.5inch hdd's are limited so if you truly want to reduce those loading times upgrade to an ssd, haven't looked online but I think the 750gb and 1tb Samsung ssds are out or will be out. Having a Samsung 840 pro ssd while playing bioshock infinite it loads so fast I couldn't even finish reading the loading screen dialog and tips lol. Plus I load into multiplayer faster then anyone in battlefield 4. So if you got the spare cash it's definately worth it to make the ssd upgrade

WeAreLegion  +   253d ago
Just the first time.
Guwapo77  +   253d ago
You will not have to watch the 1½ minute intro each time you play the game. The first time around you are getting the initial install and from there you cache the game to the HDD/SSD so there will be no more "load" times.
2 minutes and 44 seconds!!???

Wow sony can I have time to take a quick leak first? sheesh.

How long does it take to install the game to the HD?
Maxor  +   252d ago
I have yet to see a single multiplayer discussion with any substance, for example how many max players will there be. Will it be 32 players like Killzone 2 or the crapstatic 24 players of KZ 3? I mean if KZ SF max multiplayer is 16 then achieving 1080p 60 FPS isn't as impressive. However if it's 32 or 64 players then yeah, reaching 1080p 60 FPS is a great demonstrating of the PS4 power.

One thing I love about Black Ops II on the Wii U is that I can set it to automatically start in Multiplayer mode, so it takes me about 20 seconds to go from the Wii U menu to Black Ops II's multiplayer menu. Pure bliss
linkenski  +   252d ago
I can already see this becoming the main feature with Next-gen. Shorter load times and god I have waited long for this.
Gamerita  +   252d ago
According to Hulst, from disc insertion to the 1.5 minute introductory movie to profile creation to getting into the game takes 2 minutes 44 seconds.
