Oh boy, this will not end well. PC gamers will come out in full force. Console gamers will just brush it off. At the end of the day, .......
neverending cycle of upgrades persists.
someone could write a book on this.
Sorry has been changed to avoid yet another war..ignore the previous comments.
*Sigh*...Well lucky for me, I will be getting all three consoles on the future, well maybe except the wii, and building a new rig so this article does not really apply to me.
bla blah blah. funny how epic rehashes the same game over and over again...doesnt sell well and the ceo cries pc gaming is dead. ::rolleyes::
crysis was released as a "see what we can do" game. hardware is catching up to crysis per se. yet still sold a million.
wth..i posted this is another thread on my helio....weird. disregard my comment hehe.
me r konfused
Oh, well it looks like 2009 folks.
Just because the rumored dates aren't confirmed to be official does not mean the game will come out in 2009. I understand that there is a chance since no one has a clue about anything since last year. Still ... I have faith. By the time the game is supposed to come out, they will have another 1.5 years of dev time from the last build that we saw.
Hope... at least... KZ2 before december hollidays lol
not coming in September. =(
GG does a good job at not letting anyone know anything about anything. I do admit that since there has been NO new info since the last build that we saw, doubt has started to creep in me. Here's to hoping we get just as wow'ed sometime this year as we did last year. Toss us a bone Sony and GG. Pretty please with sugar on top.
This is on my top ten list this year.
same here man.. same here
Still got LBP :)
I think the devs are having a hard time with the PS3, don't me surprised if this turns out to be crap.
It wouldn't be the PS3's fault
dude...there is more support for this game from the hardware engineers of the PS3 than any other title so far...
its not the PS3 being 'hard to develop for'...it is that making the most amazing lighting system to ever be implemented into a real-time rendering engine is extremely difficult...thats all...
But just because im a golden god doesnt mean im right ;-)
they are just making me mad why cant they just give us some solid information on this game.
this has really put me off big time. they might aswell just cancell this game. this is getting too much now.
did you even a few posts after what this was about?...they didn't say its not coming in september, or this fall for that matter...they were only saying 'don't act like you heard this from us'...when a date is finally announced, they want it to be a big deal...they will probably make an announcment for a release this fall at Sony Gamer's Day in May, with a playable demo, a beta of somesort soon after, and a few new trailers...relax...cancel the game?...this is going to set the standard for console shooters for the entire generation...you will be fine...
It's confirmed to come out in 2008 although the specific date is uncertain.
releaseing at same time with Resistance 2 is not the best idea.. =)
anyway, they can use as much time as they need to get BEST result, i am not in hurry. =)
a lot great games coming this year. =)
I am confident they will get this out before Christmas; anything else would be stupid and an utter disappointment.
Sony should ask infinity ward to make this game. screw Gurilla.
Lets just hope they don't ask Infinity Ward on how to Handle Multiplayer Game Lobbies with Host Migration and Clan Support.
shut up ?
How dose a game get outdated before its even released!?
the E3 trailer from a few years ago dosent even impress me anymore
I swear when game drops no one will even care anymore, its gonna get drowned out by so many titles , they might aswell start working on killzone 3
There are alot of people, including myself looking forward to KZ2. How is it outdated? have you played it? do you even know much about it? From the game play videos i've seen K2 looks to be amazing, it will be a smash hit and its foolish to think otherwise.
I won't say it's outdated but due to the limited information we've received it gives that perception. Just kick back and play your other games. GG never said the game was being released on xx day. Those were rumours started by people as out of the know like you and me. Wait until GG makes an official statement before you get pissed about some nobody's roumour
This game has been in deveoplement before resistance 1. and yet weve seen very little to sugest things are running as smooth as they would want us to beleive ,with so many AAA games coming to the PS3 Killzone 2 isnt even on my radar anymore. The hype has passed.
well the hype will come back to you this E3
That guy why they doctor their own photos of the game!
Why the trailer at e3 was BS!
I have serious fear about this game. The first one was terrible!
calm down man.. NO FPS on PS2 was good.. back then HALO ruled FPS land.. the PS2 was simply not capable of running a FPS right.. NO HDD and had the lowest specs of the 3 consoles last gen.. it was NOT a FPS system.. if killzone had been on the original xbox it would have been great.. but NOW killzone is being developed on the most powerful system out.. so GG can live out their dreams..
btw the original killzone was intended for the PC until sony came out of nowhere and saw the game, thus the reason why the game didnt look good on the PS2
the original KZ was actually a really good looking PS2 game...I played it and it certainly wasn't "horrible' as ppl made it out to be..besides the game was rushed due the hype surrounding it at the time....either way KZ2 will deliver...and i can't wait to play it
Dude, get a life.
(waits for someone in the killzone thread on the playstation board to complain about in-game xmb) "hey sony! where's in-game xmb??" "uh...we're the killzone dev team" "no, you're sony you liars!" "......." (bans guy, locks thread)
where the F*** is my ingame xmb???
sick of these lies
EDIT- You silly ppl im tryna piss off the guy above me
im not worried one bit.. if the E3 07 show of Killzone was any indication of where this game is headed.. it looks to be the craziest roller coster ride of a FPS ive ever seen.. Maybe you guys need to go watch the killzone video one more time.. and remember that video is old as hell.. im sure its much better..
Think about it people. I have the highest hopes but I wouldn't bet a dollar on this game being amazing!
Look at the past and you will see the future.
Argue with that and you argue with history!
ADDITION: The guy below, are you saying the Xbox was more powerful than the PS2? Why would the PS2 don't be a good system for FPS? Man, you view is wacked!
like i said in a post above.. PS2 did not have what it took 2 run a good FPS game.. take ur lil look at history and u could see that..
Half-Life came out on PS2 with co-op and enhanced graphics...that's one of the best FPSs of all-time "Half-Life was ported to the PlayStation 2 by Gearbox Software and released in 2001. This version of the game had a significant overhaul in terms of both character models, weapons, and more advanced and extended levels and general map geometry. Also added in is a head-to-head play and a co-op expansion called Half-Life: Decay that allowed players to play as the two female scientists Dr. Cross and Dr. Green at Black Mesa. Another interesting feature allowed players to use a USB mouse and keyboard, a feature unmatched on the platform." - Wikipedia http://upload.wikimedia.org...
Red Faction was ok at the time...at least the Geomod stuff was cool...really corny at times, but its not like Halo wasn't either...hell, the Halo franchise never grew out of the cheeseball'ness altogether...
and don't forget Timesplitters 1 and 2...2 of the best fps games of last generation...its not like the Xbox had all kinds of awesome shooters...it just had Halo 1 and 2...that was it...if anything the PS2 had more variety in terms of fps games overall, just never anything that recieved the reception of the Halo games...
sick of what lies sony nor the developer ever mentioned release date it was just some magazine. and as far as xmb is concearn they have never gave us a release date on that neither. so really they haven't lied they are just making us wait
Is that every time someone points out a truth about the PS3 or something related to the PS3 all the fan boys shouldn't freak out. I have never seen a web site like this one.
You can say something about Sony, the PS3 or a PS3 game and people wig out. Even if it is true.
I have a PS3, I have a 360. I can state the fact about both.
I suppose if I purchased a PS3 and that was my only system I would be mad too! Possible trying to defend it like some of you are.
The simple truth is, some of us have more of an open, realistic look on the system, the games, the BluRay player. We have experienced more and our real life experiences have solid backing to them.
i like ur post and im gonna agree to it.. im just sayin taht people need 2 just let it come out and give it a chance.. PS2 and PS3 is a MASSIVE jump in specs and tech.. judging killzone 1 against killzone 2 is almost comedy.. if ur not a blind man u can see a HUGE difference.. PS2 was barely above dreamcast specs.. and ppl are mad killzone 1 didnt run properly.. its like comparing MGS2 tech to MGS4.. WTF is wrong wit ppl on this site
wow.. so if its not a november release date ... the its officially ben delayed as of today. great.
MotherH another dev said he wont confirm or deny it... I would wait to hear from one of the devs though... they are really good about telling us when we are able to know..
that footage we seen last year was a "pre-Pre alpha build". think about that for a second, then comeback to me when you feel that you dont want this game to be rushed, which was partly what happened in the original Killzone.
It isn't anything to worry about...on page 2 EON points out that they are only stating to not believe everything you read as 'official' information...
"Now, that's NOT true. We're not confirming OR denying the date - we're simply saying that you shouldn't take any date as gospel unless you heard it from us."
it most likely is September'ish, with Insomniac stating they were shooting for November...but just like the Gears 2 rumors showing up a few weeks before the official announcment ('we have not confirmed to be working on a sequel to Gears of War yet')...SCE and GG most likely do not want any thunder stolen from the day they actually make the announcement officially...
Typical, if something isnt officially announced the company will always deny it. Did people really think he'd come and say "yeah you got us, it's November"? If you did then you're an idiot.
Until this game is polished enough. It would be a big waste if they rush it and give us a half baked game. With the amount of games coming out this year. I honestly don't mind if this game is moved to early 2009 IF it will grantee a kick ass experience. GG should learn from KZ1. Although it was still one of the best FPS on PS. It still had alot of unfullfilled potential. I would rather wait for quality.
I think its good they have come out and said its not confirmed because if it were to get delayed for some reason everybody will start complaining about why it was delayed and whatnot. I think it release this year, just have to be patient until Guerrilla comes out and confirms a date that's all.
I'm just applying commonsense. GG just isn't as experienced and skilled as Insomniac, Naughty Dog or the likes which is why they are taking so long getting the game right. We'll be extremely lucky to get it this year and to be honest, I'd prefer they take their time and get everything perfect for a 2009 release. Afterall, we'll definitely get R2 this year and that's enough.
to the expediency at which Insomniac gets games out, but I'm not so sure it's because GG "doesn't know what they're doing". Sony is pouring upwards to nearly 130 million into this game and are sure they want it to be a AAA smash success. If it's not that's what will hurt so bad, but for KILLZONE 1 lovers like me I'll pick it up no matter what, but they want to bring in a much wider audience and in turn -- sell consoles.
I really hope it doesn't go to 2009, because that will be terrible for the latter part of my argument (people that are casually interested will fade away), but personally for hardcore lovers of the series like myself, I will wait no matter how long and still buy it, because I believe it will be spectacular. Just think about it: GG and Sony have seen R1, R6V, COD4, WarHawk, Halo3, Dark Sector, and Gears (all great games to borrow elements from).
They can clearly see what gamers like and what gets gamers interested and keeps their interests for a long time. I am confident DeJonge and company have made adjustments and tweaks to the game to make it an absolute thrill, plus keeping all the quirks (like Park-play, Beach-play, and Southern Hills-play) in for loyalists like myself to get us all to come to the table.
I haven't lost interest at all, but am sure that some fickle to the KILLZONE brand will move on, if indeed it goes to 2009.
whats up with the wining ?
They are not releasing it September so what ?
Means they are going for absolute perfection before release, isn't that what u guys want ?
Agree 100%. It would be a big waste if we play this game and realise they could have done much better. The same way i felt when playing KZ1 although it was still one of the best FPS i played on the PS2.
october release.hope people,hope
HE DIDN'T SHOOT IT DOWN! He just said that they have not officially announced the date. He didn't confirm OR deny the release date from Sony.
off topic Mods banned me from posting due to some words using in Gamer Zone.. But 0k Welcome me :) -------------------------- They just want to hide everything about game they will boost up the hype of Killzone 2 from giving us a new trailer with new levels and gameplay in E3 . And you will be amazed ..... Surely 100% and every one will try to get PS3 for Killzone 2 only. -------------------------- PS3 Play beyond...PS3 Rules......
Hopefully they have a beta over the summer :)
you have to take everything with a gain of salt if its off the internet.
but we all know itll be around that time anyways. i think this E3 will be the biggest for SONY. they will almost 110% show off more KZ2/R2/MS2 and hopefully 2009 such as FF13/twisted metal and GOD OF WAR 3!
expect dates for their release date at E3 - just what im guessing.
I really hope this does come out in 2008!
MEh.... so much moaning. Everyone wants this game to be right, well it needs to be or Certain people will never let it go. You want it amazing, then you have to wait im afraid, you cant put an exact date on something this big, if you do, it means dropping things. Nobody wants that.
