I'll preorder this from PSN the minute its up. KZ2 and 3 remain my favorite MP and the 4 on 4 in here is going to eat up some life since they are bringing Warzone to the Vita.

And people were doubting the Vita could look that good.... looks amazing!

Only thing I don't like is the 8 player online, wish it at least had 12.
cpayne93  +   786d ago
Yeah that's the most disappointing thing for me. I think I'm actually going to enjoy the campaign more though, looks like it puts more emphasis on gameplay than the console series.

I thought it was 8 Vs 8, and confirmed?
BanBrother  +   786d ago
I think they really want to nail the graphics down first. I never though visuals could'look that nice on the Vita. With 32 players, they would have to scale back the graphics even more. If it is 8v8 though, I'm sure everyone would be happy. If the maps are well designed, then 4v4 should be quite fine.

Need to have drop in-drop out MP though,'so the games aren't too unbalanced (the first Gears of War worked wonderfully with 4v4, but if someone left during a ranked game, it sucked as no-ne else'could fill in)
BanBrother  +   786d ago
Higher player count is good, but not necessary. 4v4 on a small map feels the same as 8v8 on a big map etc. With less players, there will also be less latency between everyone. I think it will work out fine, although I would have preferred 6v6.
one2thr  +   786d ago
True, true and even so I'd like to see the player count increase on the Vita, seeing that its the successor to the PSP, I'm still waiting to see a game push a 32 player count online (basically; a PSP did it, so why cant the Vita do it premise), the power of dedicated servers for handheld may push home console quality gaming on the Vita even further...

The power to innovate, is in Sonys court when it comes to handheld gaming this time around and their doing a great job with what their doing now, and it only gets better.

I think 6v6 would be the sweet spot for multiplayer games on the Vita. It works for Call of Duty titles and it would be awesome on a handheld multiplayer
Veneno  +   786d ago
This gam3 needed 8v8 in order to be fun b3cause with lower player counts like 4v4 if one player leav3s it cripples the team and makes the experience lame.

But I just read the IGN preview and it says theres a free for all mode which might be good as if one player out of 8 leaves it won't be that big a deal.

WOW @ those graphics. Guerrilla is always setting the bench mark.
Riderz1337  +   786d ago
Man if GG can pull this off on the Vita...Oh my god the PS4 with Killzone 4...I'm going to have a heart attack.
Kingthrash360  +   786d ago
Pleasure overload....
This is what I'm talking about. People complain about the quality of the vitas games
( baffling-ly IMO) but I constantly kept preaching that the vita was in its first year and devs haven't got their hands wet with the kits yet. Here we are in its 2nd year and we have this as proof. The game is clearly the best looking handheld games EVER. Not to say the vita didn't already do this with many others ( I don't feel like listing the others ... Too many). I doubt ill see any vita haters commenting on this. September release looks like Pokemon will have a run for its money come Christmas....( not really tho IMO killzone is batter than Pokemon but lets be real, a lot more 3ds's sold so a lot more pokemon's will sell.) killzone will be A system seller that's for sure.
I do see some dick who's disagreeing with everyone.... Speechless hater can only click disagree after seeing that trailer.

Looks pretty good
HOLY sh*t!!

I got shivers down my spine :O Sold!!!
akaFullMetal  +   786d ago
Wow, i'm quite impressed.
P45cal  +   786d ago
Ohh my lord. This looks frikin amazing! I don't buy a lot of vita games just mostly PSP and vita RPGs but son this doesn't dissapoint. If the reviews and player feedback is good count me in day after release day :)
Donnieboi  +   786d ago
Damn September is a long way away.
Kennytaur  +   786d ago
Killzone puts previous shooters on the Vita, that need not be named in the same sentence, to shame.
WooHooAlex  +   786d ago
Whaa... that's gameplay? Someone needs to do a side-by-side comparison of Mercenary and KZ3.
I have chills, that was beautiful.
WooHooAlex  +   786d ago
Those crap Resistance and CoD games from Nihilistic just got put out of their misery. THIS is the definitive portable FPS.
Nicaragua  +   786d ago
That looks great. It seems more realistic and infantry based like KZ2 rather than the giant spider walkers and jetpacks of KZ3 - which i thought were a bit silly.
Toon_Link  +   786d ago
Sign me up.
zpoc  +   786d ago
this looks GREAT. i will be supporting this by buying it day one.
--Onilink--  +   786d ago
see... this is what a FPS should look(and hopefully play) like on the VITA. This is the type of game fans should support and not blindly follow games like Resistance BS and COD, because when you support quality games, you show devs you want quality. If you support piss poor cash grab ins, they will keep releasing those types of games
--Onilink--  +   786d ago
also not a big fan of swipe to meelee, but thats just a minor gripe compared to how everything else looks. And maybe it will be optional. Also whats the final deal on online multi, 4vs4 or 8vs8?
profgerbik  +   785d ago
4v4. Listed on the Killzone site with information. We will probably never see more than 4v4 because the party system in the Vita is set for 8 players, for instance setting up party chat can only be done with 8 players so they probably figure what would be the point of having more than that currently unless the party system is updated to support more which is always a possibility later on down the line but not currently.
JayD-1K  +   782d ago
That doesn't add up. I don't want to hear the other team during MP! All I need to hear is, the 6 or 8 members on my team!
So, we could use the party system for MP.
Sevir  +   785d ago
This is crazy! This is hands down is the best looking game on Vita and Nihilistic Software needs to close down and never make games again. They disgraced Resistance after it's remarkable comeback with R3. And that shit they coughed up with COD. GG once again setting the bar and the standards. Day Freaking one!
DivineAssault  +   785d ago
Its brilliant.. Idk who allowed Nihilistic to release the garbage they did lol.. This is incredible for being in your hands.. People will still hate but they cant argue with graphics/gameplay like this on vita.. ITS vita not PS3 mind u
