Posted by Ken Chan // Associate Product Manager, SCEA - Lock and load: the newest addition to the ever-growing PlayStation Collection library will be Killzone Trilogy — hitting stores on October 23rd, 2012 for $39.99 (MSRP).
Omg yes. An HD remake of the original Killzone! Please release It on the PSN store for $15 and I would buy it in an heartbeat.
"720p HD makeover, along with full Trophy support." - Might have to grab this
I just finished KZ1 less than a month ago, damn
Hope they boost frame rate up to 60 fps too (at least for KZ 1)
still holding on to my KZ2 and KZ3 copies, so hopefully KZ HD will be available for download! can't wait!
I hope the controls are as great as K2 and K3! I only played K1 2 years ago for the first time and I could not really play it..
The buttons were fully customizable, it also supported 16:9 and the online community was still active when I played it.
Why do they release them at 15? It makes no sense to me. Put all 3 together at 15 and you get 45 dollars.....more than buying the whole pack. Oh well, looks like I'll be paying since I loved the original and already own the other two.
U just answered your own question...by giving a discount to those who buy the full bundle, it gives folks an incentive to buy the whole collection and get the whole story as one. The game being $15 a piece doesnt mean their over-charging, it just means you dont get the discount that those who got all 3 games are getting. It's a good marketting tool to sell all 3 games. MGS HD Collection did the same thing when it came to PSN.
Never heard of bundling, eh?
I want Killzone on the Vita!
I have not played any Killzone ever so this sounds like real good deal to me. I've always been interested in trying it out but I just never had the time and always had too many other games. Of course I'll probably just be playing the campaign mode...
list of games to buy just keeps growing... YES, can't wait to replay KZ 1,still playing KZ 2 online, and I really hope that there is KillZone on PS4 in fact a bundle with the PS4 and new KillZone would be amazing
Killzone in HD is worth the $40 alone, well.. at least for me it is! Day numero UNO!
i hope all 3 games are on disk and no digital download crap. That's what i love about infamous collection both games on 2 separate disks. i guess sony wasn't lying when they said more HD will be coming later in 2012 now only if we get GTA hd collection that would be sweat
resistance NEXT ?
Pretty interested to try K1, hope it has Multiplayer, was always curious about it
Played all 3 of the Killzone games and imo killzone 1 had the best single player of the 3, the game's multiplayer was just icing on the cake. Time to get my Hakha and Rico on this fall. Killzone was underrated and slammed for not being the so called halo killer it was a great game.
Pretty sure it was slammed for technical issues mostly, but the PS3 should do what the PS2 couldn't.
I agree with you, i preferred the original game, the levels where far better, snow, jungle etc I shall buy it for sure
Why is -Alpha getting disagrees? =/ Admit it, Killzone 1 was full of technical problems. I liked the game, but the problems ruined it. Cant wait for the collection! 30+ hours of gameplay + all DLC's in a single package for only $40
Yes, I remember that. The media gave it the title 'Halo Killer' and then when it wasn't, changed the heading to 'It's not the Halo Killer Sony said it would be'.
I dont remember any technical issues harming my enjoyment of this game. I do remember a lot of people grumbling about it though. majiebeast and GribbleGrungers are right, the media turned hard when it wasnt the Halokiller that they themselves touted it to be. PS KZ1, Best weapons in the series.
Excitement for KZ 2 and 3-40% Excitement for KZ1 HD-100% Cant wait to play with good old health packs, secondary fire, Janner, Hakha, Luger and Rico >:D
Rico was badass back then! In KZ2 is such an a$shole, and in KZ3 is just ok. I wonder why after KZ1 he got fat? ¬_¬
Its probably thanks to the pressure of the helghasts or the power of ps3 XD
I'm buying it just for KZ HD
PS Store will have it
Just buy kill zone One off the PS Store for $15 then.
i'm getting this. i've never played killzone 1 and so here's my chance to experience it.
:D actually made my day!
To HD, I hope to God that Killzone also has 3D support. :-) I'll be picking up the collection. At $40 that's a steal for 3 of the best games in PS's line up. I'm sure Killzone now runs on a 60fps engine on the ps3... As it was marred by the ps2 short comings... :-)
Killzone 1 was a great game, just suffered from frame rate issues. Remade on the PS3 it should run just fine. =] Can't wait to buy this! I kind of regret selling Part 2, and I don't have a PS2 so I can't play part 1 either.
Agreed, it was actually my favorite in the series. Being able to play and switch between 4 different unique character was just so awesome. And the interactions between all of them were believable too. REALLLY REALLY hope they bring back Luger and Hakha in Killzone 4. It just won't be the same without Templar though : /
Should that have been a spoiler alert? :) Being that I haven't played the games yet (but will) I hope I'm not finding out that someone named Templar will die...
@raWfodog Not really. lol. What I meant was that you just don't get to play as the original character you did in Killzone 1 (Templar) in Killzone 2 and 3. I kinda thought that was well known. Kinda like how you don't get to play as Master Chief in Halo Reach. Lol Sorry if you didn't want to know that though :o
No worries, my friend :) I actually don't get turned off by spoilers. I don't actively seek them out but if I happen to stumble across them it doesn't ruin my desire to play the game.
I love that opening speech from Killzone 1
Finally. Killzone in HD and trophy support. Probably one of my most played games ever and now I get to do it all again. Nice one Sony (and GG)
I wish they would add vehicle support in the game something the devs wanted to put in the game but because of tech issues and poor coding it did not happen, this would be a great chance to put it in however. Hope they allow us to pre-order aswell.
Excellent; KZ1 in HD. I was waiting for this à very long time. Thank you, Sony! Great box art, by the way.
Glorious HD and steady framerate for Killzone my godness finaly. PS2 era is literally being revived little by little.
ive never played the first so yes!!! bring to store please!
Hoping they fix the bugs and framerate :)
shut up and take ma $$... Never bought killzone 3 so this deal sounds good
probably the reason why they didn't release it as a PS2 Classic a while back
I only played Kilzone once, at my cousins, just playing bot matches. Really liked the feel of the game, but cus I myself never fully played the game, and I never owned a PS2 to play it for myself, I'd never think of trying Kilzone 2. Now I have the chance to experience it ALL.
well i already got 2 and 3 i may sell those and put it towards the collection as i never played 1 ever in my life since i didnt own a ps2 back then does anyone know if killzone 1 hd will be on disc in this trilogy?
Yes it will. This article has alot more details on KZ1 HD. http://n4g.com/news/1075760...
thanks very much sir
This should have happened already lol. I loved K3. The stages went from jungle to weird stuff lol. K2's last stage sealed the deal as it being one of my favorites. So many people to shoot, was almost over-whelming lol. I thought 2 was better than 3 but thats just my opinion. Never played the first one.
i think i might pick this one up - i already have KZ2, but i don't have KZ3, and i haven't even played the first KZ.
Well that's it...Done with SONY. Unless they plan on making SOCOM HD a PS4 launch title, don't even bother with it SONY. Oh...and what a stupid idea it was to announce this game. Most people who have wanted to play Killzone have bought it, and since they most likely have the game already, they definitely aren't gonna go out and buy this game, when they can by the standalone KZ HD on the PSN. This game is destined to sell like crap.
Someone like to tell me where I went wrong? I mean if you had this game, and already bought all the DLC for it, your surely aren't gonna sell the game, which means you still have it. Someone with a brain aint gonna go out and drop $40 when they can get the one part they need for a lot cheaper.
I like comprehensive collections. Where's Liberation?
Finally TY GG!!!
Killzone1 was a very atmospheric game more so I would personally say than the sequels. It was a little shoddy tech wise being that it ran on PS2 but I enjoyed what GG did with the first game. 2 and 3 though despite being very accomplished didn't do it for me at all and that was partly because I just didn't care any for characters. Great Helghast design though it must be said
I loved Killzone on the PS2, it was a major accomplishment for them to pull that off with what they had. Sony has really been stepping it up in terms of value for your dollar. I think I might have to buy another PS3. I’m not really a Sony fan, I much prefer my 360, but these are good deals. Play station + with some good games to rent (no, you don’t own them) and now these collections? I’m down.
I never played any KZ games I blew it off as another FPS but after hearing so many good things about 2 & 3 I'll give it a shot. If I like them I may even get interested in KZ Mercenary.
Same with me. Thought they were generic fps games. I'm gonna grab this bundle after hearing all the positive views
Excited about KZ1 HD, I really hope they'd also make SOCOM TRILOGY HD
Will pick this up to play Killzone HD. Did K2 and K3 so it'll be nice to play the original game that I never got around to in my PS2 days. Anyone play it recently? Does it hold up pretty well?
Holy Balls that trailer was cool. The first Visari speech and killzone intro will always be my favorite. It still sends a chill down my spine.
Good grief! Games Games Games... I would've never thought that I would have problems keeping up. Just... So... Many... Games!
I'll be picking this and Medal of Honor Warfighter up at the same time.
Why are they releasing this? Killzone one sucked. Anyway I suppose it must have had some fans, they kept making the damn thing. KZ 3 was the best of the bunch, but they just released that. This is a weird "collection"
