PS Vita's 'Killzone: Mercenary' is shaping up to be the best handheld FPS ever -- Examiner

Killzone: Mercenary is shaping up to be the quality first-person shooter the PlayStation Vita rightly deserves. (Killzone Mercenary, PS Vita)

all previews are praising it. It seems its going to be a killer app.
MonChiChi  +   711d ago
Yep, very exciting.
Dj7FairyTail  +   711d ago
same was said for Gravity Rush and Uncharted GB being killer app but those didn't move enough. You have to wait til it launch and see. One thing it won't do good in Japan.

Agreed, I have heard some say they are waiting for this game before buying Vita and then PS4. Seems a fairly common plan.

^Fairy, really? What's the attach rate for those 2 games/Vitas sold? I would have thought a large portion of Vita owners have one/both.

sound great! I know GG will deliver!

I'm more excited for this one than the PS4 game. But...I'll more than likely get both anyway :).
LOGICWINS  +   711d ago
Me too. A full fledged KZ game on a handheld is much more impressive than a KZ with better graphics on consoles.
DoesUs  +   711d ago
Shadowfall is not fully fledged?
LOGICWINS  +   711d ago
Yes, but its not on a handheld. A full fledged KZ game on a console thats 16 times more powerful than a PS3 is EXPECTED to look and play great.

By handheld standards, its UNEXPECTED for Mercenary to match up with the console experience so well...thus making it more impressive.

I can't wait to see MP for this game. I hope they up the player count.
mafiahajeri  +   711d ago
Its on sonys part to up the player count becasue the party system is limited to 8 people, yes I know its stupid.

Although I think deathmatch will be really fun with 8 people and the rest of the game modes will be more tactical, I believe deathmatch is a first since the original killzone! Really excited to play deathmatch!

If they add bots that would be amazing too!
SIX  +   711d ago
This isn't a rhetorical question because I really don't know. You don't think that such things as player count is because of a lack of system power? I'm only coming this conclusion based on the fact that all MP games I've played on the Vita cannot exceed beyond the 8 player count.

MOH on PSP had 32 player online games.
mafiahajeri  +   711d ago
I didnt take it as a rhetorical question :P

It has nothing to do with the power Im pretty sure the vita can handle 6vs6 or even 8vs8.

Nihilistic said that they made 4vs4 MP because the Party system was limited to 8, making it more would cause problems on sonys part because of the Part apps limit.

They need to increase the party limit. If they do that I can see them increasing the player count in the future.

Seeing as how UI features on PS4 are seeming to match what's already on Vita, we COULD see this change when Sony releases an update for Vita.
Certainly some form of update will come out to make sure compatibility in all forms is maximized. Stuff like the conflicting friends list count means there should be a sizable update coming to both PS3 and Vita. Although, it may not be until around the release of PS4.

Here's to hoping, though!

Thanks for the edumacation guys. Things are really starting to shape up. I have high hopes for this title. Vita needs to succeed and I hope this game plays a huge roll in the revival of the Vita.

Patiently waiting to receive my beta code I really hope I get one if not I'll have to wait for next months open beta :)

This is the killer FPS that the Vita needs not Resistance or Call of Duty which were absolutely horrible.

stevehyphen  +   711d ago
Resistance was better than Black Ops I thought. That's not saying much though.

It's like comparing diarrhea to vomiting.
Acquiescence  +   711d ago
That's not saying much though is it...
considering there are precious few first-person handheld shooters out there that are actually good.

Not to crap on Killzone Mercenary or anything; it does look ace.

finally,an fps on the vita that was made with some tlc.
