Awesome...now I can watch it over and over

I hope we see Sev and Rico as old soldiers in this and I hope to god the new character has more development and will remain as the main character for the new trilogy.

Well, since you're willing to troll, I hope you're also willing to take the consequences.

Also, your opinion is wrong.

Grow up dude and stop this console PC war cr@p.

Crysis 3 looks better but the gameplay sucks.

it's a "supercharged" PC with "x86" CPU and "enhanced" GPU, it's going to blow PCs away!

I love my PS3, but no PC games can look way better.

Yeah, it does, but some PC gamers will never admit it. I am a PC gamer, but I'm not going to lie. I'm playing Crysis 3 right now and it looks amazing, but not as good as Killzone Shadow Fall.
Bobertt  +   607d ago
Crysis 3 is out killzone isn't plus we all remember what happened with killzone 2 gameplay at ps3 reveal. Crysis 3 isn't the best looking game on pc anyway.

@Bobertt

I wish people would actually compare Killzone 2005 vs Killzone 2 because they actually gave us a better-looking game on 2007.

Why didn't they just call it Killzone 4?
Same with Second Son. It's annoying when these games come across as being mainline titles in every way apart from their title.
Trenta27  +   607d ago
Second son makes sense, though, as its not Cole.
Acquiescence  +   607d ago
Don't agree with that logic...
There are countless examples of sequels out there that are set in a different location with a new protagonist. Final Fantasy, GTA, Silent Hill, etc. Should've just called it inFamous 3, it'd have been more epic.
DasBunker  +   607d ago
I'm glad it's a rebranding for KZ, TBH everything looks better from the trailer, setting, artstyle etc. Also it makes sense for Infamous, Xmen-like sandbox!
Root  +   607d ago
@Acquiescence

I kind of agree with you on Killzone 4 but I suppose it's because it's a new trilogy

However

Second Sons is NOT inFAMOUS 3 in my opinion, if they say it is fine but for now it's not

inFAMOUS 3 will continue will Coles story to wrap up a trilogy, they didn't leave a question mark in the form of a lightning bolt for nothing

Second Sons future setting dosen't make sense to both inFAMOUS 2 endings

Let me explain

If it was the good ending then there would be no conduits unless the gene started up again or a new group, the successors to the First Sons from the first game is making another Ray Sphere.

If it was the bad ending then conduits would rule the world and there would be no humans. Why would we have humans watching conduits on cameras if they had been wiped out by the rise of the conduits or the plague

Maybe because it have different characters and different time..

Probably a prequel?
Shadow Flare  +   607d ago
Metal Gear Solid 3 was a prequel
DoomeDx  +   607d ago
Killzone Shadow fall takes place 30 years after KZ3
Riderz1337  +   607d ago
Are you actually serious? Did the environment look like an ordinary Killzone game in Killzone shadow fall? No, therefore it deserves a new name because it's NOT Killzone 4. Also InFamous Second Son doesn't have cole so therefore it isn't inFamous 3....I feel like an idiot for having to explain that to you, but then again, what does this make you?
Acquiescence  +   607d ago
Metal Gear Solid 3...
Different protagonist, different timeline and setting - still a numbered sequel. Silent Hill 2 didn't continue the story of Harry Mason, while the town itself represented something entirely removed from the first game - still a direct sequel. There's no set rule here that if a game changes the formula too much, it is obligated to become a spin-off instead of a fully-fledged sequel. Shadow Fall didn't even look radically different from previous installments and from what I can tell, neither does Second Son.

By the way, there's no need for personal attacks.
DoomeDx  +   607d ago
- Final fantasy
- Call of Duty
- Grand Theft Auto
- Silent Hill

I can name you 500 other games that had different protagainst in every sequal.
bluetoto  +   607d ago
Because when you place a number behind the title people start expecting the game to play like the other versions and lose their minds when the devs want to try something new. This gives them the freedom to do as they please without hearing all the whines.

After you have established a name for your franchise it's a much safer bet to go with subtitles ala COD does.
Silly gameAr  +   607d ago
Man, it looked so awesome. I hope they show some real gameplay come E3, and Infamous Second Son???? what??? I need to know what that's about.
they did
BanBrother  +   607d ago
Best moment of the show. As soon as he said Guerilla Games, my heart stopped.
Amazing looking game, better than I expected. The brutality was shocking at the start, bullet to the head ouch.
At least now people don't need to be worried. Also, 4gb to 8gb of RAM? Wow. I thought people said Sony couldn't afford another beast console? Ha.
Trenta27  +   607d ago
They aren't the ones hurting from that RAM. Our wallets will, though.
MrDead  +   607d ago
not just any RAM, this is DDR5

Tht was real gameplay. You didnt see him playing in background and then manipulating xmb. That was live.
modesign  +   607d ago
i hope at e3 they show GG new IP.
1886afc  +   607d ago
nothing to see folks... i'l go back to playing my ps7. oh! I mean PC
if my ps3 has anything to say about it, games are better than graphics, nearly every game i own is exclusive, if ps4 can pull that off than it, like my ps3, will be better than a pc 20 times as powerfull. only time and e3 can tell

civ 5 alone is better than any ps3 game.
Eldyraen  +   607d ago
@1886afc: I agreed only because I recently got sucked back into playing it ;) I love me some Civ games (even Revolution). Every Civilization game just has a ton of depth and replayability, even watered down versions that went to consoles.

I don't know if I'd really say it was 'better' than any PS3 game but personally I've put more hours into it than any single PS3 game to date. Its just hard to beat the shorter but stellar experiences many PS3 exclusives are designed for.
great, i'll have to check it out. but if it is better than every ps3 game out right now. which would be amazing, i still wouldn't be able to live without my mgs4's, uncharted's, journey's, resistance 3's, starhawks, last of us's, infamous 2's, and little big planet's.

also, this is what i don't understand about "the master race" their always talking about how underpowered consoles are compared to their pc's<--(these are awesome)which are great by the way, i consider myself a pc gamer as well. but really what makes pc's great for me is stuff like civ 5, and amnesia, and really just games that might not have the best graphics out there, or make use of all that crazy hardware, but generally just awesome games i cant get anywhere else

and if that's the case then the only thing keeping you away from enjoying those great ps3 games is the fanboy inside of you, which no offense, but you kinda are if any of the comments you have typed above have anything to say about it

I can't wait to see a good quality HD clip of this game, even the poor quality stream had me drooling.

Next gen = Now Gen.

So much for that generational leap everyone swore would happen!
goldwyncq  +   607d ago
Look at the ps3 launch games and compare those to the ps3 games we now have today. By the end of next gen, you'll be eating your own words.
Eldyraen  +   607d ago
Psh, I think new Killzone and Resistance:FoM are near indistinguishable... but it could be because I broke my glasses.
r21  +   607d ago
So it takes place in 30 years after KZ3. Guess the Vektans helped out the Helghans and let them live on Vekta. Oh and if you notice in the gameplay during the conference, you'll notice a feature thats finally made it back from KZ1. Secondary fire :D
InTheLab  +   607d ago
Thank god. I'm glad they sort of when back to their roots. Hopefully, they won't lock us down with just one dude like Sev and allow us to play a variety of characters with different play styles...like the original..
r21  +   607d ago
Unfortunately, it seems like we are stuck with one character...for now. We'll get a clear idea hopefully soon.
Mogwai  +   607d ago
That helgast soldier looks like tartar sauce the grumpy cat :(
Nodoze  +   607d ago
Maybe it is just me, but I simply cannot believe that the 'next gen' for Sony does not incorporate anti aliasing!?! I mean for fks sake there is PLENTY of power to get rid of the damn jaggies. What stood out to me in that Killzone trailer was the endless aliasing, the screen tearing, the low res textures and the simple fact that it looked ALOT like a PS3 game.
Mogwai  +   607d ago
I wholeheartedly agree, i noticed that too and was disappointed.
in this day and age jaggies and screen tearing should be things of the past, if this system is so powerful then surely it can get rid of them jaggies, seeing as this is a demo of an unfinished game lets hope the final product will be smooth as silk.
jalen247  +   607d ago
Looks great. Can't wait to get my hands on this game.
