And unfortunately I didn't get mine. I got BF4 instead because KZ wasn't available.

For those believe in this spectacular game and call it "bland" and "generic" all leave this here.

I just hope for the sake of you SonyFBs that the launch games live up to the hype. Because nobody likes a game that is too hyped because it will never meet your expectations.

All I came here to say is that - whether Killzone's preorders are more or less than two completely dissimilar games on a competitor's console - I really hope Killzone does well. It always has been a fun but flawed B-grade series with the potential to be A-grade, and it looks like Guerilla is putting in the extra footwork to make it A-grade (those open-ended maps!). Let's just hope the fans respond in kind.

Really, now yall gonna whine about people being excited about their console of choice and showing support by repeating its slogans? People do it all the time by wearing articles of clothing with brands and slogans on them, and they pay to wear them, which is pretty much paying to be a walking advertisement.
So, if people are excited about the PS4, and they have every reason to be, they have every right to show their support by repeating slogans. On here it's the closest you can get to wearing their colors or symbol.

"Its hardly surprising you cant buy a ps4 without a game so naturally killzone will benefit."

That is the dumbest excuse to give as to why the game is selling well, There is many other titles to choose from aside from KZ the fact that it is outpacing all others is the fact that PS4 is controlling Pre sales global and KZ is the PS4's killer app right now! I have always been a fan of KZ but honestly not of KZ3 as it is in my opinion the worst in the franchise but Guerilla has come out and said that the franchise has been reworked from the ground up. Let's not also forget that KZ also has a great multi player following as well and this will only improve with the PS4 and more people owning copies of the game.

It's interesting to see that the other launch titles from Sony aren't getting much interest. Seems I'm in the majority in my indifference towards Knack, but I haven't really seen enough from Driveclud to know whether I'm interested in it or not. It'll be interesting to see how Sony sells the PS4 and it's launch titles.

@XboxFun - What does one thing have to do with the other?

"Xbox is only for shooters" means there's not much variety on Xbox, not that PS users don't buy shooters.

It's not surprising that KZ is outpacing Forza and Ryse.

Ryse is a new IP that looks good but not incredible, and Forza has a history of selling less than it's N4G fans think it will. If MS had been smart and provided a Halo game for launch, I'm sure the numbers would be much different.

KZ is an established franchise in a popular genre that's known for great visuals and solid multiplayer, if not groundbreaking gameplay.

A comparison of pre-orders for multi plats like BF4, Watch Dogs, and AC4 would be more revealing. Last I saw, BF4 was the top pre-order on both consoles.

Kryptix  +   364d ago
@XboxFun

Not sure if you knew, but Killzone: Shadowfall is one of the two exclusives that comes in a bundle with the PS4. Pre-ordering the bundle is also pre-ordering the game that it offers, boosting it's sales. Killzone has proven itself to be the game to get more than Knack so of course people will pick KZ over Knack. What other option is there? If Infamous: Second Son had a bundle, the story would probably be different. More like Killzone: Shadowfall and Infamous: Second Son outpacing Forza 5 and Ryse.
JokesOnYou  +   364d ago
Silent its preorders, so nothing is sold yet. Preorders for games are a good indicator but hardly representative of actual sales since many folks never preorder. Also I was told not to listen to analyst last week when he said his data suggest X1 momentum was building and it would be 2-3 times ps4 at launch. When it was posted n4g analysts said analysts dont know shiiiii.
http://www.videogamer.com/n... I was clear that besides Pachter most do do their homework.

Top 3 launch exclusives:

KZ: SF 30.3
Knack 7.7
Driveclub 3.0
Total: 41.0

Forza5 18.8
DR3. 15.0
Ryse 13.2
Total: 47.0

I guess people only read the headlines.

OK to add given the above data X1 which is supposedly far behind ps4 in preorder sales is actually selling more exclusives than ps4, even more telling when you consider X1 has more exclusives at launch to divide sales but still its top 3 surpass ps4.

-hmmm so is there really a huge preorder gap or are X1 games just more appealing to xbox fans vs ps4 games to ps fans.

It seems KZ is outpacing because that's pretty much the only game that looks interesting at launch for the PS4.
Of course it would be outpacing everything else including its own games for the PS4.

In my opinion I'm glad the X1 has more of a variety in launch titles than just a FPS.

And they both had great scores !?

From what we've seen from gameplay it looks to be better/less linear than previous titles.

I've got it preordered and it will be my first PS4 game I play.

What I personally think looks even better gameplay wise is Killzone Mercenary on Vita though. I don't have a Vita yet, but the looks of that game make me want one.

cuz it killzone titles usually dont stray too far from their identity.
the campaigns were alright the color palettes just were always boring dark and gray and what not they seems to have better that with this KZ . My main gripe is with the multiplayer i never go into it was just meh...average...nothing special imo. Honestly Resistence: Fall of Man was my favorite exclusive Fps for the ps3 of the whole gen. Imo theres better FPS's out there.

I'm pretty sure almost everyone here watched the E3 gameplay but it shows how they moved away from the linear levels. You'll be able to tackle missions in any order you want because of the open maps.

good point because all the people in here bashing KZ titles have not played them, that's almost a guarantee. most are COD newbs or just Halo d-riders.
KZ2 was a very, very good multiplayer game. Always has good visuals, KZ3 was pretty good, a bit of the same stuff, but had some new elements. Overall pretty fun to play online... my only complaint was a smallish skill tree. The controls are different but have a good feel, always a good connection too by the way.
At least if you are gonna come in here and bash a franchise, have some valid statements to go along with it.

KZ Sf is the poster boy for a high quality, high-production value, system selling. next-gen launch title. It defines "AAA exclusive". It's pretty, it looks fun, it looks cool and it looks worth every penny spent on it. Not to mention it already has a fanbase from being a well-received franchise.
It's a showcase title for the PS4 and the games coming later just push the presentation further.

This news comes as no surprise.

@Family Guy - Well said!

@shinrock - I remember the comment earlier as well. Logically a franchise ceases to exist if it doesn't sell well with examples of poor sales leading to developer demise for devs like Zipper, Bigbig, and a few others under the the Sony 1st party umbrella (its just business). With that said, Killzone Mercenary and Killzone Shadow Fall will be the 5th and 6th iterations of the franchise, there is even a noteworthy novel Killzone Ascendary which has been available since the release of Killzone 3. My point, Killzone titles continue to be developed because millions of gamers simply love the franchise and rightfully so. While it would be great for any exclusive to generate the Halo sales buzz, Killzone doesn't need to sell like Halo to be successful, it already is a successful franchise. Killzone is a superior shooter with an acquired taste, it is what it is. Like KZ2 and KZ3 Shadow Fall will be acquired millions and that's the simple truth.

Killzone shadow fall is launching at the best time, it will be a true next gen FPS available at launch, I have not pre ordered it but will be piecing it up day one for sure

KZ is the only FPS I have ever played for long period of time

If people would just stop hating and see how great GG are at developing this than this game would get the right credit it deserves. I believe this gen we will truly see KZ series do well and compete with halo(not saying it will sell 10 plus million but 5-8 for shadow fall is not a far fetched number)
Shadowolf  +   364d ago
Looking back at the sale of the series and no Killzone title has yet to hit the 5 million mark. I believe KZ2 finally reached the 4 million mark for its lifetime with KZ3 surpassing the 3 million mark with the added digital sales of the multiplayer offering via PSN. But I think you're right assuming Killzone: Shadow Fall has a great shot of reaching 5 million as a launch PS4 title. Not taking anything away from the K:SF of course, but uber popular multiplatform shooters like BF4 and COD: Ghost could make matters a bit interesting for Helghast nation.

Personally I have PS4, KZSF, watchdogs, and extra controller just waiting for release date. There are also many F2P games and free PSPlus games that the launch is shaping up to be pretty good. Infamous April next year and I'm sure at gamescom and TGS we could see a lot more from Sony first party

LordNikon  +   363d ago
Ehh... no, the graphics is better than Crysis 3 imo. And the point of graphics isn't to emulate realism, its to give a visually appealing art and style. The textures looks fake? Really? In that case, every game announced so far for next gen has "fake textures".

And its too early to judge the AI, especially since we haven't played the game yet or have any knowledge on what the AI would be like on different difficulity settings.

This game has impressed more than titles such as CoD:Ghosts or BF4 has.

Pretty wild that people don't understand that the Xbox has 3 games up in that bracket from this site while it's only KZ up that high.

So MS has 3 games in the top tier, while Sony has 1.

Ya.. when people are spread across 3 different games, those numbers are going to be lesser than people only wanting one game.

From the link....

"Forza 5 is the top placed Xbox One title at 18.8, followed by Dead Rising 3 at 15 and Ryse at 13.2. Sony may well be concerned about its full launch line-up, however, with Knack only scoring 7.7 and Driveclub barely registering on 3.0."

2) Forza 5 - 18.8/100
3) Dead Rising 3 - 15/100
4) Ryse - 13.2
5) Knack - 7.0
6) Drive Club - 3.0

Multiplats are clearly dominating, like COD - 73, Battlefield 4 - 54.7 and Watch Dogs - 69.6

To be fair, Sony is offering DriveClub free with PS Plus purchase, so gamers won't see the need to buy said title, and that must have played a role in its low preorder numbers.

its not the full game in ps+ version. Only games im looking at is MP right now. I won't even get those till later.

Well at least we are getting SOME kind of next gen game free to test out, unlike those other guys

:)

PS+ edition will still show us what the games all about, and from there a lot of people will probably buy the full version.

Free is free, man.
hesido  +   364d ago
Ps Plus version is not the same, but very close. In any case, it certainly would affect pre-orders.
Ju  +   364d ago
There is no difference between DC PS+ and the retail. Only difference is one is a disk the other isn't. You can easily just test drive DC and than buy the rest from PS+. I know I'm gonna take a peak before I buy and why would I decide now if I actually get the game for free at launch. I'd rather spend the money on KZ:SF.
GamerGuy153  +   364d ago
I like many others would've preordered driveclub but the developers themselves have said that the PS+ version has all of the features without some of the cars and tracks. The preorders for Driveclub are low, but i predict that with PS+ it will be one of the most played and purhcased launch title

Muerte2494  +   364d ago
It was intend to show if exclusives are moving consoles. When you think about it, it's actually pretty impressive. it's almost 2-1 when compared to Forza 5. I think people are missing the point. They trying to downplay the fact that even with Dead Rising and Forza 5 added together it's only 33/100 and Killzone SF (solo) is 30/100.

There is still more to come for Gamescom. Also this is America only (Xbox One's strongest territory). Let see what the numbers look like elsewhere.

Off topic: Free is free no matter if it's a slim down version or not. It can also be upgraded at a later date. Of course this would affect pre-orders. 9 games confirmed at launch to play if you have PS+. Xbox Live Gold is only 1 game Killer Instinct (Jago and Saberwolf)

@Muerte

Another possible headline could have been:

"Xbox One exclusives outsell PS4 exclusives!"
At the end of the day it comes down to your point of view.

Even the regional split you mentioned works in both ways. NA is by far the biggest market for shooters and Europe loves the racers.

Anyway, the reasearch is done based on public data of Amazon.com - that alone should ring the alarm bell.
Muerte2494  +   364d ago
@DiRtY,

That logic doesn't apply because Ps4 pre orders outpace Xbox One pre orders 3-1. Every Xbox one purchase would have to be buying Forza 5 to achieve those numbers. Europe loves shooters too but they also love a well known series called Gran turismo. Xbox One is also only launching in 21 countries. I swore it said NPD in the article and Amazon.

"The 2013 Cowen Video Game Odometer is based on an analysis of NPD sales data and Amazon.com best-seller data from past years, which the firm claims to give it 96 to 97 per cent accuracy. Data has been monitored since E3 in June and is updated every few weeks."

Muerte2494  +   364d ago
No, that wasn't the purpose of the article. It was to say that Killzone: SF is tracking a whole lot better than Xbox One exclusives. Someone just recently wrote an article saying they they "didn't know if Sony had any launch exclusives that could match big Forza 5."

People who have never played Killzone 2 need to pipe down. Where do you think other multiplayer got the whole "dynamic game type" experience from?

Whoever said that about Forza is clearly blind or crazy or both.

Forza sells about a million and a half...then dies. Yeah the media loves the franchise and it is good, but it's also an annual release and I just cant see a game with incremental improvements and typically low sales dominating anything.

Seriously...Forza sits on shelves until it's time to bundle with an Xbox + popular title like Skyrim.
iamgoatman  +   364d ago
@InTheLab

So much ignorance in your comment.

"Forza sells about a million and a half...then dies."

A million and a half you say? Forza 2 sold 4m, Forza 3 sold 5.38m and Forza 4 has also sold 4m. So much for that million and half and "typically slow sales" crap.

"but it's also an annual release"

Annual means yearly. Forza Motorsport so far has released every 2 years, therefore not annual. Pretty simple to understand.

Next time troll harder, because that was pathetic.

Shadowolf  +   364d ago
Sure multiplatforms are certainly taking the Lions share but you can't ignore the impressive showing for K:SF which is outpacing the Xbox One exclusive bundles in some cases more than 2 to 1. Of course games like RYSE should probably get a pass as it is a new IP, yet still it is what it is. I am actually surprised K:SF bundles are outpacing the Dead Rising 3 bundles more than 2 to 1 - wow!

Yeah you are surprised in America an exclusive shooter is higher than an exclusive racer??? hmmm have you been paying attention this gen, shooters sell more than any genre on both consoles COD/BF say hi.

KZ might finally break through and become a little more mass market. If they can get a great MP in then this might be a reason to buy a PS4.

I really want to buy both systems but I mostly play MP games. I think Sony's strong suit are their SP experiences which I just dont do. I did enjoy KZ2 for a while but once that was done I gave away my Ps3 and kept 360.

If KZ turns out AAA MP experience I might get the PS4 sooner than later. Plus I want both systems to do well. We are now seeing how competition improves our industry as a whole.
SCW1982  +   363d ago
Sorry but KZ2 multiplayer already pulled out a AAA experience. Lets hope ShadowFall is more like 2 instead of 3
Syntax-Error  +   363d ago
Look at the list and it's clear why Shadow Fall is high on that list. It's the ONLY good game you can buy for the PS4 at launch. OctoDad, Knack, and Drive Club are garbage launch titles
DonFreezer  +   363d ago
Xbox One fans have to split their money on multiple games. Ps fantrolls only have Killzone so that's not surprising.
Geezus  +   364d ago
"Out of a maximum score of 100, Killzone: Shadow Fall currently scores 30.3, which compares favourably to next-gen competition.
Forza 5 is the top placed Xbox One title at 18.8, followed by Dead Rising 3 at 15 and Ryse at 13.2. Sony may well be concerned about its full launch line-up, however, with Knack only scoring 7.7 and Driveclub barely registering on 3.0."
Imma attribute this to Killzone being a Fps. Lord knows what would happen if Halo was a launch title.
"Battlefield 4 scored 54.7"
"This year's Call of Duty: Ghosts has a score of 73"
Fps's man they are not slowing down next gen... Fps's gone Fps.
pedrof93  +   364d ago
I agree with you Halo has way more popularity than Killzone that's inevitable. But then again Bungie isn't on Halo now, so don't expect halo being what it was last gen.

Let's in the same category we have: Destiny and Planetside 2. And the last one being an F2P.

@Geezus

It dosen't stand anymore has a stand alone type of FPS. Destiny will probably overcome halo in popularity because its multi-plat.

i favored Bungie's Halo's for the most part except for Odst. But it think 343 did a good job considering it was their first Halo and they were following Bungie. the The lore got way better with the addition of prometheans. They just need to tweak the multiplayer bring it back to its Halo 3 roots (dual wielding, no sprint, Elites, better maps...etc.) and they will be fine i was happy with Halo 4 and the multiplayer was still fun as hell. I dont see Halo going anywhere next gen.
Edit: Destiny passing Halo is irrelevant they're different games entirely... also multiplat versus exclusive. Cod/ Battlefield will probably pass Halo doesnt mean anything. Halo is still a system seller tho.

While I'll agree that it's a great franchise, there were few improvements from Ultimate 3 and Forza 4. Perhaps if MS gave the franchise more time to grow. I feel like like 2 years is not enough to build on what's already there.

Instead of Forza 5, fans should be getting more DLC or an Ultimate Forza 4....But MS has to work that well and need one of their main franchises to show off the new hardware.

Don't do them better.

- dynamic maps

- dynamic changing game modes in one map 7 games mode one map

- in game clan system that allowed you to set up your own tournaments and wager valor (form of currency/ranking) and allowed private matches

- full customization of private rooms/pub rooms

- spawn grenades

- six axis sniping

- one of the first and only games that allowed music in game ps3

- 20 gun variables to how bullets reacted

- heavy weight feeling

So before you stealth disagree most of you. Should actually play the game rather than bash something you know nothing about. Actually try arguing against that with real info lets see how far you get.

Not only that, Killzone is only running at 25-30 fps, so it BETTER look amazing. I have to be honest, judging by the HD gameplay demos I've seen, it looks better than current gen, but no where close to the ground-breaking next gen some people pretend it is. It has that skin textures that remind me of a slightly better looking dishonored in a way. IMO there is nothing to be excited about for this game, it looks just as boring and clunky as the predecessors and it looks like the AI is still retarded.

This is very expected news, PS4 has gained many casual followers and for the PS4 to immediately have an exclusive FPS launch title for generic gamers who favor Call of Duty and Battlefield is a plus on PS4's side but I myself am not very impressed, It just seems like yet another bland First Person Shooter with a generic storyline and basic gameplay don't get me wrong this game is breaking graphical barriers that Crysis doesn't even exceed, Its just a personal opinion from what I'd say is just a matter of not being able to experience first hand, until then we shall see.
Ilovetheps4  +   364d ago
I can see why people think it's generic. I thought the same about KZ2 before it came out, but then I bought the games because my group of friends did. The campaign was okay. I beat it once and then never really went back to it. But the multiplayer was really good in my opinion. I liked the way the classes played and the general layout of the maps. But it wasn't a very easy game to just pick up and play. I remember a lot of people complaining when the game came out about the way it played. It was a tough game to get really good at. But, when people put in the time, there was a lot of depth to the game's multiplayer. You won't see that depth from a trailer. I am thinking that is the case with this game.

i remember sony guys saying PS3 games dont sell as much as 360 games because there more ps3 games to buy..they have a bigger variety then the 360..if thats the case then the same excuse should be used for the xbox one...its launching with more games...ps4 has knack kz an drive club..which would you buy outta that group? i would only buy KZ outta those 3 games aswell.

Well I have the Knack bundle preordered at Amazon. I also plan on buying Killzone Shadowfall and Drive Club as well. All three actually do interest me. Of course my kids will also probably enjoy Knack but if I had to say who the game was really for it would be me. I just really enjoy those type of platformer games because they are just a lot of fun.

Even doctored promo images of KZ (the same 3-4 that get posted every time) don't look that great.

Infamous Second Son on the other hand, looks impressive.
I saw an extended gameplay demo and it's the best the PS4 has to offer atm imo.

Killzone baby. Tell your friends.

I'm not surprise it's the most wanted on PS4 I mean its a shooter and bundle with the system. As 4 me I already prepaid it with the system a week after e3 was done along with watch dogs freaking excited 4 it and last NFS rivals as I really wanted a open world racer and I personally enjoyed NFS MW2012 and HP2010. I'm surprise forza 5 isn't high as I thought it would be sense it's a really popular racing game on Xbox.

Killzone shadow fall looks like an amazing game, I'm not suprised it's getting high Pre orders, well deserved.

I have Call Of Duty: Ghost pre-ordered for PS4, but I might switch to Killzone. Ghost will be available on current gen, so it would be nice to get a TRUE next gen exclusive for my PS4, like Killzone, instead of something where the developers couldn't stray too far from current gen capabilities.

Def the best selling next gen game, good job guerilla, good job

thats were your wrong most the people in 343 who make halo now are from bungie bring facts before you post

Maybe. the problem is, it's still Halo and believe it or not there are many who think it is a slightly overrated series, yes, I am one of them. Halo (1) was good but after that they lost me, there was no real atmosphere (especially three), and when you shoot enemies there's no impact, no sense of death, just brightly coloured enemies clonking to the ground. It just feels very...Teletubbie like, that's what it always reminds me of, I can't help it, it just does.
I know that will upset a few but were all allowed an opinion....aren't we..

Looking forward to some Killzone multiplayer, next gen style.

Halo has had the same enemies since 2001. Same color palette, same introductions, same everything. How many times do we need to save the galaxy because we are mankind's last hope??
