Killzone: Mercenary may have the graphical grunt Vita owners have been waiting for. Forget cinematics and check out the Helghast doing their thing in-game in this new footage.
I didn't believe that this would be on par with Killzone 3 graphically, then I see this. ASTOUNDING!
I'm so impressed!
Me TOO! I just dont want to wait until SeptEMBER!!
There is only 1 thing I hate about this game. Its release date :(
Holy fuk these is Going to be the standard to any fps on any portable system for sure ... Looks fun would love to see some MP
This is "Quality" . this is a trueee "next generation" portable. I think we can all agree that this game looks better than "everything" on the past gen wii u. Why waste time and currency on a wii u when you can get a vita with quality far superior to that of the wii u. The wii u can't compare or live up to such standards and its supposed to be a console? I cant wait for this game and i will have it at release some way or another Its amazing. . .
@logicwins lol it's not on par with killzone 3 gfx nor even killzone 2 ...let's not say things that are not true but i will say this it's the best looking hand-held game i have ever seen
Killzone fan here, seriously I cant wait Sent from my PS Vita
So....phone games are the future.... Where are the people that were making those statements?
The name of this game says it all. The series has proven itself in terms of graphics on any "KILL ZONE" - Medium "kill zone" ( on regular TVs with Killzone 2 on PS2) --> Check - Large "kill zone" (on FULL HD TVs with Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 on PS3) --> Check - Tiny "kill zone" (on 5 inches OLED screen with Killzone Mercenary on PS Vita) --> Check - Ultra large "kill zone" (on Ultra HD TVs with Killzone 4 on PS4) --> NO NEED to check
"lol it's not on par with killzone 3 gfx nor even killzone 2 ...let's not say things that are not true" But it CAN be. Remember, the game doesn't come out till September.
I think I finally know when I'll be picking up a Playstation Vita :D
@finalgetsuga I'm not a fan of Nintendo either, but your comment makes Playstation fans look bad. Killzone Mercenary isn't better looking than everything on the Wii U. It's not even the best looking Vita game. Does Uncharted Golden Abyss no longer exist? Killzone Mercenaries has a massive lack of detail and poor textures in comparison to Golden Abyss. X or Xenoblade 2's recent trailer for the Wii U looks amazing and if graphics really mean that much to you, then it puts Killzone Mercenaries to shame. This and Super Smash Bros are the reason I'm going to pick up a Wii U in the future. Well. That and the fact that I passed on the Wii so I'll use it for WIi games as well. youtube.com/watch?v=KHYtvOP8A MY Not only that. Black Ops 2's graphics put those Killzone Mercenaries graphics to shame. Doesn't mean Mercenaries isn't going to be better. Black Ops 2's story mode was awful. Who plays Call of Duty for story anyways?
That is some really nice graphics. When watching the video, I didn't realized I had the res at 360p, yet I thought it was good for a handheld. After changing the youtube res to 720p, it was simply amazing. The only thing that seems to not be on the same level are all of that post-processing effects from the KZ console games. However, the game is still being developed and all of that might be added later.
Looks incredible. The crotch takedown.....ouch!
Kupo...try not to use logic or anything here. Most people on this site can't even see the difference between Golden Abyss and Uncharted 1( which is extremely noticable). Just....say something to please people like "Wow this was amazing, Ps3 game in my hands" Even though your just sorta disrespecting the console version when you say that.
I think this Irishguy kid (I say kid cause of the 95) has some attitude problems. I cannot understand why anyone would come on this site at all if they hated it like this guy seems to do. Ontopic. This game looks badass.
Yeah, imagine what these guys could accomplish on the PS4! While not really up to the level of Killzone 3 or Killzone 2, it does look fairly close in a general way and is an astounding bar-raising accomplishment for handheld graphics.
Am sorry but doesn't look nearly as good as KZ2 or 3 everything is far lower res, it looks amazing for a mobile platform game but come on you guys are lying to yourselves if you think it compares to the latest console shooters. Not that I expect any common sense from this community, but stop bigging it up for something it's not.
OMG... This is the Vita. OMG
Finally some real FPS action in my hands!
Exactly... Tried Resistance and COD for vita and both sucked. Killzone looks like it won't be dropping the ball but setting the bar instead.
HOLLLLYYYY SHIIITTTTTTTTTT Was abit skeptical about this but just,hot damn.
Same here, i was expecting a lazy port like COD BLOPS but this looks incredible, definitely buying this.
I hate the over-used word "amazing" mainly because Kim Kardashian throws it around and comes off as generic, Also because of romance-comedies,however.. My point is the graphics displayed here for Kill Zone:Mercenaries is just that. Amazing. I think this game has the graphics crown for fully blown hand-held game and even puts some console games to shame. LOL! I didn't know the vita was this capable. Now. I do.
i guess you havent seen the MGS4 cutscene running on the vita....
Sony (and Guerilla Cambridge) has me thoroughly surprised. Hopefully they will surprise me again by marketing the heck out of it, which would probably guarantee Vita's success, and provide us with lots of people to play online for a long time. I wanted to be mad at you for mentioning so and so, however, your comment is spot on.
@a_bro - Ah, sorry about that, meant to put an agree, but I accidentally hit disagree. Curse N4G for not letting you change that... Man though, if anyone can do something beyond belief it's Kojima. Watch him put out an MGS game on Vita that rivals MGS4 in graphics. Not to say Killzone isn't amazing looking. It really is for a handheld. However, I'm sure the Vita can be pushed even further.
I couldn't agree more. Suddenly Phantom Pain on Vita doesn't look impossible anymore.
"on par with Killzone 3 graphically" wow i mean....never mind visually it looks ok for a handheld, gameplay is bad and slow, don't know why ppl overreacting and some faking excitement about it, i mean chill ppl it's just another fps game -_-
'visually it looks ok for a handheld' Nullifies your post.
Foolish trolls. If it was Halo 5, you'd be foaming at the mouth instead of saying, oh its just another shooter. GTFO. You dont even like Sony, why you here?
jony- Look at his post history. He's one of those nerds that thinks Japanese devs make the "BEST GAMES EVAR!!!!", even though most of them are corny, poorly written and bound to archaic traditions. Said games are made for horny dweebs that love to see (fake) teenage girls in provocative clothing. You know, little virgins like j-blaze.
"i mean chill ppl it's just another fps game -_-" Got you on the record. I'll be watching your reaction to the next Xbox exclusive FPS.
Funny thing is, Killzone for Vita still has better graphics than Halo 4.
@JP1369 - Yeah, and you saying, "one of those nerds that thinks Japanese devs make the best games ever." makes YOUR comment null and void. Everyone has a preference, just because you may not love Japanese games doesn't mean his opinion is invalid. Calling someone a nerd because of their likes simply shows that you're immature. I remember when people used to think playing ANY game was nerdy. We all play games here, no reason to ostracize others because of their taste when we all have the same hobby...
Snookies- I was trolling the troll. That much should have been pretty obvious given the nature of my post. Personally, I do like a lot of Japanese games. Having said that, I'm don't limit myself to just one genre, or just one culture. I like to play games, period. And yeah, the people that do that kind of thing are exhibiting a level of obsessive behavior that I find pathetic. The only reason I chose to say something is because one person in particular seems to like coming into articles about games he clearly hates, just so he can be a whiny contrarian. I got sick of it and gave him back some of his negative and neurotic energy. P.S. Refrain from using all caps to show emphasis. It's part of the nuance of the language and anyone with an intellect that could even be called average is meant to understand on their own.
faking excitment? For who? You? Im really excited becase no its not just another FPS its a current gen quality game on a handheld. People have the right to be excited because we havent seen anything like this before. Did you up your youtube quality to HD!? Thats the only explanation for your post.
...Why are you here telling people not to be excited for a game that they're excited about? What's your problem, seriously?
What exactly is "faking excitement"?? You said the same thing about The Last of Us, but why would someone fake their excitement? I just think you can't deal with the fact that people like something that's exclusively on PS3 and/or isn't Japanese-developed, and that the rest of the world don't share your restricted tastes.
If prior KZ entries offered the kind of gameplay this one suggest, occasional options in a fight instead of raging firefights, the series would be regarded higher than it is.
It's called advancement. Some games do that you know. If past KZ games did what this one does, others like you would be bitching that it didn't do something newer.
I just hate shooters that run at 30FPS.
it's not on par with the ps3 masterpiece (if you can see the games on the same screen), but better than anything on others consoles.
It looks amazing for a portable game but not even close to KZ3 imo.
NIHILISTIC PAY ATTENTION TO GUERILLA CAMBRIDGE THIS IS HOW YOU MAKE A FPS - FOR HELGHAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amen Its like every since the famous CG video Guerilla games has something to prove. Every Game since then looks amazing.
Too bad they cant hear you all the way down there making mobile games! Lol.
FOR THE MONEY!
Can't... oh Je.. *_*
Holy Cow Batman, this looks good!
Oh man that footage really is something else 0_0 Move over Uncharted I think we have a new winner for best looking handheld game.
Good looking, but that ROCK SOLID 18 frames per second... nooooot so good. NOTE! Don't make the mistake of expanding the video to full screen as it more or less gives you an unrealistic idea of what it would look like on the Vita screen. Keep it at default player size and it looks fantastic.
More than likely a late Alpha/early Beta build; still nearly 8 months of development time left to bring it up to a steady 30 FPS. For a first time Vita dev, Guerrilla Cambridge are doing an amazing job!
Yeah great if they have THAT much time left. Thot this thing was dropping soon or something!
It looks like it's going to be fun using the mantis drone.
I know. Most excited about the porcupine homing rockets and the new mantis drone. I was so suprised, did not think these graphics were capable on the Vita. The graphics are at least on par with Resistance 1 or 2 (I'd say Res2), which is amazing considering they are on a full console. I wonder how much better a sequel could look on the Vita in a couple of years. Looks good enough (not just graphically) to be on a home console.
AHAH 3DS lovers are going to be jealous LOL xD No doubt! The best looking game in history on a handheld!!
You do realise that most Vita owners are 3DS owners (and vice versa) too, right? There's no Camp Vita and Camp 3DS, like a lot of people seem to think.
^ pretty much this There are some 3ds owners who love the Vita ya know ~i'm one of them.
Yeah maybe you'rr right... but I'm talking exclusevly about THE 3DS LOVERS! xD Hey dont get me wrong.. I ave a DS too so...
I had a 3ds and sold it because, you know, carrying 3ds, vita and a cellphone in my pockets made me look... funny, so I had to choose one to get rid off, Vita won because I love fighting games and Vita owns 3ds in that genre, having two portables doesn't make much sense since you can only carry one, and after watching this, I think I took the right decision.
My sister has a 3DS,it was fun playing some mario on it,gonna buy mine soon after Monster Hunter 4 is released , with my Vita & a new 3DS,my handheld gaming is at peace ! :D
playing fire emblem right now on my 3ds while typing this post with my vita lol
The video didn't show grenades. I hope you don'
