Killzone Shadow Fall: from disc to game in less than 3 minutes

The technology behind the PlayStation 4 has allowed Guerilla Games to vastly reduce load times in Killzone: Shadow Fall, according to managing director Hermen Hulst.

The story is too old to be commented.

*notices disagrees*

Well no fluffydelusions, you're wrong. Apparently you CAN wait.

Edit: *Notices my disagrees*

...or maaaaybe you can't wait...ummmmm yeah this is getting a little confusing. /s

ABizzel11379d ago

I didn't disagree, but he can wait.....just under 4 more days before "Greatness Arrives" ;D

rela82me1379d ago

Xbox One doesn't come out until November 22nd sir...

lol jk, had to be said.

Maxor1379d ago

He's waiting now isn't he?

MidnytRain1379d ago

The disagrees are no more stupid than bubbling up "Can't wait" as a "Well Said" comment.

SilentNegotiator1379d ago

When people disagree with a comment like that, it's because they themselves don't agree with the sentiment. And that's okay; just breathe and let it go that a small, small minority don't feel the same way.

rainslacker1379d ago

He actually doesn't have to wait. He can go buy the game now.:)

Assuming he lives in NA of course.

ICANPLAYGAMES21379d ago (Edited 1379d ago )

Well played, I had to vote to bubble you up for that, huzzah!

edit: how did a little light-hearted sarcasm turn serious? This is too much, :D

OlgerO1379d ago

This is my comment of the day!

Greatness Shadow Fall

3 Minutes? What?!? That's not enough time to go make a sandwich!

But plenty of time to grab a beer!!!

clouds51378d ago

What's so great about that KZ shooter? We've seen 1st person shooters like this 100 times before. I don't get it :D
I guess people have to be hyped for it because there is basically no other game?

Thx for the reminder. Target has KZ and a few other titles being released today in the states with the 3 for 2 deal. I have to stop on my way home and pick them up.

Since we are debating what can't wait vs actually is waiting means. I will simply say the days are crawling by while awaiting greatness. Just 2 MORE DAYS TO GO and then it's off to Best Buys midnight launch!

CBaoth1378d ago

@ brutal or anyone else going to Target

Dopey associates there mislabeled Knack for $39.99. So I bought it separately this morning and grabbed another game in the b2g1 free deal. I'd call your local Target and check to see if they corrected the price yet. Might be worth a trip on someone's lunchbreak to save an extra $20

Boody-Bandit1378d ago

CBaoth

Thx for the heads up. I will check Knacks price. I'm headed to Target right now while on break.

ABizzel11378d ago

@rela82me

I said Greatness not mediocrity...

:D

whome1378d ago

killzone is actually better then call of duty.

rainslacker1378d ago

@Brutal

I got KZ last week when it became available. Gonna pick up Knack tomorrow from GS unless Target has it for $39.99 like someone above reported, in which case I'll get my deposit back. Amazon has shipped my collector's edition of AC4.

I took advantage of the Amazon B2G1 promotion to get NFS:Rivals, Lego:MSH, and NBA2K.

Might head to target Friday morning before work to see if they have 3 more games I want to pick up. Gotta love getting an much bigger than expected bonus the week of a console launch.:)

Unfortunately I don't know if there are three more games that I want to get right now. Maybe Madden and Injustice, but can't think of a third...stupid Watch Dogs delay.:(

i dont understand why you got disagrees with that comment. its like they are jealous that they wont be getting it on a certain console

Septic1379d ago

Lol are you guys new to this site? Trust me, the ratio if disagrees to agrees can be much worse depending on what 'side' you are on. #truthfacts

MizTv1379d ago

Oh yeah!!!!
I can't wait for this game to blow me......away

christrules00411379d ago

Alot of my friends play COD. I'm pretty sure they are pissed at me that on the midnight launch the first game I'm going to play is Killzone Shadowfall. They even went as low to say "I was told Killzone is alright" and when I told her that Planetside 2 in early 2014 is releasing she said that I should wait a month until it's half off. LMFAO. About tomclear my friends list out because they can't except I play higher quality games then COD.

MizTv1379d ago

Less the wait the better

christrules00411379d ago

How the heck does this get a disagree?

AbortMission1379d ago

Xbot: "Wait, you're going to enjoy a game that's not on MY preferred console?" *dislike* Lol

IRON883 1379d ago

That's awesome I'm so damn happy we can play the game while the update loads up:) 3 more days!!!!!!

The_Villager1379d ago

"The technology behind the PlayStation 4 has allowed Guerilla Games to vastly reduce load times in Killzone: Shadow Fall, according to managing director Hermen Hulst."

If the technology is so great then why can't the PS4 read discs instead of having mandatory game installs? That 500 GB hard drives is no better than the Wii U's 32 GB if we get all these game installs (Killzone: Shadowfall, 45 GB required. Knack, 37 GB required).

So there's next to no advantage getting physical based games as compared to digital versions, and vice-versa.

isa_scout1379d ago

Unless you have a ultra fast internet connection there is still a clear advantage as you don't have to wait(in my case about 3 days) to download a 45GB game before you can start playing. I actually like the fact that the game is read from the hard drive. It'll make games perform better and be hella lot more smooth, and this is something both Sony and MS are implementing. Thats a big reason why there are no load times.
I do agree though about the hard drive size. Would've been awesome if the PS4 came with a 1TB hard drive.
Looks like I'll be upgrading my hard drive a little sooner than I anticipated.

Hicken1379d ago

Oh, there are advantages. A physical game has its advantages, such as not taking up as much HDD space(generally speaking), being more easily transferrable(buying, selling, trading, loaning), and there's always the whole collectible factor.

Digital games are more efficient(I highly doubt even the new Blu Ray drive is running upwards of 7200 RPM) and less space-consuming, among other things.

Besides, I seem to recall that games can read off both the disc and the HDD at the same time. Don't quote me on that, though.

Maxor1379d ago

I hope Sony add external HD support because laptop drives in the 2TB range are both slow and expensive.

solidsheep1379d ago

Wow gamers can be such divas. How about just delete a game your going to have room for around 13 games. Is it really that hard to delete one?

christrules00411379d ago

Actually it does have advantages playing it off of the hard drive. Once the game is installed onto the hard drive the blu ray reader only needs to spin the disc up to read the key. Then it doesn't have to spin the disc anymore so it actually runs quieter off of the hard drive. The blu ray reader gets less wear and tear since it only needs to install the game and of coarse get the key. Since all of the data is on the hard drive the loading screen is dramatically improved and not to mention you don't need a whole crap load of loading screens. Playing games off of the current gen discs worked well but with games being so much more data on next gen reading all that data from the disc to render a scene would cause an absolute ton of wear and tear on the blu ray drive.

Once Killzone Shadowfall is installed on the hard drive it takes 15 seconds from when you put in the disc till until you can play your character. Unlike the what 2 minute The Last of Us boot up time on the PS3.
