Here is Gamersyde's first full reencode of their Killzone 2 footage with the best quality possible. As it is full 720p resolution and better deinterlacing/deblending, this should help quite a bit in seeing all the little details everywhere. Enjoy!
Sony need to supply us with some HD direct feed footage asap. Or at least stick some footage up on todays PSN update.
Yep, totally agree. Actually, what I really want, is for Sony to release the full intro with some of the ensuing gameplay...Cause the insanity of the action in the intro hands down flat out creams what was shown in E305! It is a shame that the only footage is currently from the low quality Jeux-france vid.
I've already come to the conclusion that the reviewers are going to kill the game if it's off by a 1/100 of what the CGI was. I'm wondering if you think this game will do well. It's a day one purchase for me but I'm not sure if that's true for all of you. Thoughts?
Frankly I don't give a s**t how this or any other game a sells. As long as my buddies and I have it I don't care. As an FPS fan this game is my most wanted. Day one without fail.
I was just throwing a question out there for those that did care. PSN: Lifendz
Fishy Fingers @ You are not very bright are you? Bad sales > Sony looses money > no sequel > IP dies. Sales ARE important! Because of bad sales we will never see sequel of master piece games like Shenmue and Okami.
Not very bright? My 2 degrees would disagree with you there. I don't care about Sony, I dont care about Killzone 3, all I care about is this game, the game I've waited 5 years for, I just want to play it with my friends, simple as that. Profit, sales figures, corporate standing, none of those interest gamers, well REAL gamers. They are just the toys of corporate fanboys who draw more success from a companies achievements than their own. 1 million or 10 million, sales dont improve graphics, game play doesnt improve on a sales based ratio, let Sony worry about that, stick to playing games. And please in future dont be offensive towards people. My opinion my differ from yours but that doesnt mean im "not very bright". You've already created a new account because you lost all your bubbles, I thought you may have learnt a little from that experience but obviously not.
Dude i am not going to read you entire comment since i can see that is bunch of non sense. it doesn't matter if you have 2 degrees that doesn't mean you are correct every time you open you mouth, especially not in this case when you are writing bunch of crap that makes you look like clueless 15 year old. Once again sales are important! Is it Sony or any other publisher it doesnt matter. Also i used Shenmue and Okami as an example, not published by Sony, but it seems you dont know that? If game does not sell well no matter how good reviews are or how good game is in fans eyes, you are not going to see sequel if sales are bad and publisher looses ton of money, and this is where GAMERS LOSE. I WANT another Shenmue, but Sega is not going to invest one single dollar is IP that made them lose 30-50 million dollars. Even if that game has its hard core fan base, it is not enough to justify production and development of another sequel, so IP dies, Sega moves on, WE GAMERS LOSE. And Mr. 2 degree stop making fool of your self, because thats what you are doing here, you "opinion" is stupid and cant prove LOGIC wrong no matter how hard you try. I wont replay any more, this i wrote so other members can read.
They could always market their engine for the PS3 like EPIC does. Even if sales aren't stellar, surely their engine is worth some dough.
Ok come on seriously Fish, the sales do matter if the game gets no sales there will be no sequel and Guerilla may quit developing for PS3. But on the other hand sales aren't everything, and I too agree that as long as I have this game it doesn't matter if a million others buy it because this game looks fantastic from this footage. I wasn't too hyped for this game, but now I am (still much more hyped for Resistance 2 though :))
already in Work by Sega confirmed by Sega 1 1/2 years ago. And there are Rumors about a PS3-version, cause BLU-RAY and so on...
I rofl @ Education being flaunted.
Its almost black and white. Looks good though.
The game has a different art direction much like COD4/Metal Gear or any creative vision that someone decides the color palette. @ Fishy People can't talk about how the graphics aren't going to be like the CGI trailer anymore.. so they have moved onto something else to try to impugn the game. Until its released we are going to get nothing but detractors trying to make it seem that colors and ai will stop them from wanting to play this damn amazing chunk of technology. Im not talking about P4. I'm just saying what goes on once the Color Theory Nazis show up. http://www.neogaf.com/forum... Entire game is NOT grey.
Thats the art style, they use a lot of muted tones to accentuate the colours, such as the explosions or the glowing of the enemies eyes. Its intentional, and used correctly adds a lot of substance. Also, the setting is mostly constructed from stone/concrete, remind me, what colours are they? If they were fighting in a Jungle I'd see your point, but they're not. [email protected] CViper, I dont believe P4KY B is needlessly bashing the game, just stating his opinion, which is as valid as yours or mine. The game does look pretty grey, theres no denying that, but thats the art style they went for, and personally, I really like it.
Cuz there's no way you could honestly type that if you had. That game is the most gorgeous game I've ever seen. The lighting was amazing, the aa was just as well. It destroyed anything on 360. Unreal engine what?
Not going to lie, I am a biased 360 owner but this game definitely has my attention. I wasn't too interested in Killzone2 because Killzone 1's gameplay was too generic for me but after watching this video I am definitely getting this game whenever I get around to picking up a PS3.
You are comparing ultrarealistic KZ2 with cartoon GEARS2 LOL pathetic KZ2 is the best looking game EVER and it is compared to GEARS 2/1 which doesnt even stack up against UNCHARTED graphically
i respect you now because of that comment.
Thanks. It's true, all the controversy surrounding the game and with only two previous games produced by Guerrilla Games I wasn't sure what to expect but I want this game, even more than Resistance 2. Reason why I haven't picked up a PS3 yet is all my friends have 360's so we all play online on that system and the exclusive single-player games for the PS3 that I want such as FF13 and God of War 3 aren't coming out yet. MGS4 is not a system seller for me personally. Loved MGS1, but since then haven't really cared for the series.
looks really amazing...
ever created It kills Crysis in terms of VISUAL FIDELITY
It looks "good" but not that "OMZFG" as most of the Sony-Fanboys want to belive! As I stated before, CoD4 with ultrasmooth 60fps has "destroyed" my hype for Killzone2! My PS3 wants LPB a hundred times more than this ! But I must say that the explosions looks really great!
I'd love to see what qualifies in your eyes as a graphical marvel if Killzone2 gameplay isn't doing it for you.
obviously, you didnt saw the intro of this video, it was shown at the other but site but in low quality but still, it looks jaw dropping, i've never saw anything like that before in a videogame in real time..
even CRYSIS was pwned by KZ2 in terms of graphics No game for a FEW YEARS might challenge the GRAPHICAL FIDELITY of KZ2
I like people who argue the PS3 is more powerful than PC's. Since it makes a lot of sense for a 400 dollar console to be more powerful then the most expensive hardware out. Im not saying its cost effective to be a PC gamer, but not surprisingly thats where you will find the best graphics.
And this looks every bit as great as I am hoping for...
im not impresses ppl not at all cod4 looks better in some parts this game looks better in dome parts any 1 here remeber cod4 ship level looks the same as this atleast cod4 shows us more than i type of art desighn unklike killzone which looks grey and blue from start to finish cod4 ship lvl look better than this
cod4 looks no were near this :/ and this trailer had alot of vivid colors in it so shhhhh stupid fanboy >.>
go back 2 your lagbox no exlcusives on the crapbox hahahahahahahahaha after ninja gaiden sigma 1.5 it looks no better than the one on the ps3 yea i said it no exlcusive until november
if you dont like this then you wont like anything that will ever come out this gen, go back to the cave you came from, am sure thers alot of color in there, COD4 looks like a PS1 game compared to this
KZ2 makes any of your garbage BOX 3 FIX ME games look like CARTOON CRAP of 1996 on N64 that garbage box has been killed by KZ2
Back to your gaybox 3sh!tsty, stop boring us with your lame wisecracks.
Jok3r, lol...this game looks amazing so far. Someone needs to adjust their vision.
I mean seriously KZ2 is WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW
It looks really good! I'm glad I bought a PS3 last week. Anyone selling a 30"+ HDTV for under $600? And to P4KY B above: should the crumbled buildings have been rainbow colored?
Call of duty managed crumbled buildings with colour. KZ2 graphics do look good and there seemed to be lots going on, its just funny how Gears was slated for being grey but its ok for KZ2. But with almost a year left until KZ2 hits they have plenty of time to add some colour. I have never seen a game with 10 months dev time remaining look so good.
@P4KY, you do understand this isnt plant earth, and that this is on another planet, so theres a reason why the colors look the way they do, this isnt call of duty 4 where your out in the desert some where in fake iraq or afgan where the sun is bright and the buildings show its color, so please stop complaining about there not being alot of color and let the game be, and also who knows what other types of environments there will be in the game.
No matter the color pallet, I love the art direction they have taken with this game. War is not pretty and unless you're in a jungle, there is less chances of much color, especially when you're on a planet like this one.
i have just experienced Beauty !
This game is quite amazing to watch, screen shots don't do it justice. Everything seems so smooth and natural. On a technical note, it's damn impressive. Off topic.. since everyone is complaining about "how gray it looks" I figured I chime in too. Like Fishy said, it's an art style meant draw attention to the other "non gray" colors. Take a look at Mirror's Edge (which looks awesome too). They have a unique art style as well, focusing on a LOT of blue. There is no green at all. This, however, allows the red and yellow to stand out brilliantly. It makes their game stand out as well. This is what Killzone 2 is doing also.. when you see anything Killzone related, you know instantly what it is... that's because of their art style. Some people like it others don't... can't please everyone I guess lol.
It creates the mood perfectly to fit the story. I like it a lot because it's unique, and works perfectly.
and its not as grey as these offscreen videos are making it look... watch the gameplay sections of this level within the official trailer...everything appears a lot more saturated...the concrete, which there is ton of, is still grey...so there will still be some whiners...but the sky and lighting is nothing short of stunning...
It's more then just that though. It's like their going for a Sin City type of look.
The only people that whine about colour are just looking for a reason not to like this game and thats all they have. They prefer Blue and purple aliens with green and orange blood. Let them have it.
Anyone else notice even from these movies, how smooth the action/framerate look? The animation of the enemies looks movies like, especially when being shot, and I dont think theres anything wrong with the AI at all. They seem very responsive and quick the act to your movements. I played the demo for KZ 1 over and over again and it had great AI. Every section I repeated would play out different everytime. The soldiers would behave differently ever time depending on what you did. PS I hope you get the Helghast assault rifle again. Huge magazine with an underslung shotgun round for finishing. Beautiful.
but my question is, Since Killzone 1 was a failure, why are they expecting anything different this time around? I never played Killzone 1, i was just going by the reviews I had read. This one looks great though, probably the best looking game other than CoD4...but how was the story mode in the first one? I heard bad things about it...
The story and characters were the best thing about KZ1. Ricco was a badass. The PS2 just couldn't supply the power that they needed.
it wasn't just the PS2...the game was released about 6 months before it was done...
"Since Killzone 1 was a failure" LOL! Killzone sold over two million copies worldwide and is why the game has the red Greatest Hits cover for the few copies that are still here and there on store shelves. TWO MILLION COPIES in case you missed it the first time.
2 million is a very small number given the size of the PS2 userbase! Sure hype helped it but other then the story the game was terrlble just like there other game shellshock nam or whatever! This developer just can't get it right and if this game were released now people would quickly see that it's nothing more than eyecandy for about 20 minutes until you start seeing the things that just don't look right! I'm so dissapointed with the results of this game and can't believe all the hype surrounding it!
KZ1 was definitely not a failure - it just didn't live up to the hype (not started by GG either) It's graphics are amazing for a PS2 game The AI could be brilliant on occasion The script was amazing the part that failed was the project was to ambitious for the PS2 and this created issues. It sold over 2 million which by any book is a good sales record And why does everyone forget KZ:Liberation which is a PSP classic from GG - it's balance and game play are held up as some of the best PSP gaming out there. It's multiplayer is great (with up to 6 ad-hoc) It has sold well worldwide and while it's difficultly has been panned by critics most feel it is a good game. as IGN put it: "We gave the Best Action Game of E3 2006 to Killzone: Liberation. The first sentence of the award write up is, "This category had only one clear winner.", and yeah, we were proven right about that one. Well okay, when looking at the entire year it had plenty of competition, but we still nailed it at the time. Likewise, our pick for Best Fighting Game of E3 2006 went to Tekken: Dark Resurrection. Again, we nailed this one as it's clearly one of the best of the year. " http://psp.ign.com/articles...
Man Killzone 2 is going to be an awesome FPS, come next February. I can't wait to see what they do with Killzone 3! We haven't seen ANYTHING of what will happen with Killzone 2 either though! The Developers on the Playstation Forums say the best part of Killzone 2 is by far the "multiplayer". Co-op and online pwnage? I can't wait.
If this game was coming out this year no other game would stand a chance in hell, not even Resistance 2 would stand a chance against Killzone 2. Well Feb 09 is when it comes out I just hope it doesn't get pushed back further in 09.
This game has no choice to look good, its been in development for ever and its again delayed
Stop whining. It won't help the XBox 360 not come in last place.
This game just doesn't seem chaotic enough! I mean sure all the explosions are going on and you know it's a war but it doesn't look like your in a big battle because you have 8 enemies on the screen with poor Ai that pretty much all do the same thing over and over again with a wall here and there! The red barrels are so 80's and all the grey is overdone and makes it hard to look at! Also why does every explosion look the same and certain floors have a brand new glossy look on them if this is a war torn place!Then his hand and many walls have this sort of washed out tent like crayons that looks ps2ish! Yeah the game looks beeter then the 1st but when you really look at it you can tell it's just part 1 repackaged! This game is going to flop and will never live up to the hype! Sure it has nice lighting but thats just not enough so I hope they take an extra 2 years to make this game the way it should be!There just so much I could say about this game but I will let you guys hype it up until it's 1st review of a 6 and everybody thinks back to my comment! Edit below Xionpunk: WHats funny is people were saying the exact same thing about part one until it's release! Face it people this game is not going to be good at all! It's ok to hope but it's not going to happen! History will repeat itself trust me!
The amount of bubbles you have says it all... Another brainwashed M$ deciple... Move along please!
sadly what part of PRE-ALPHA do you fail to understand?
It's ok to ignore Candystop, he'll just have to enjoy looking in at our party from his side of the fence for the next five years. We would invite him, but he's just too damned psycho and nonsensical to even bother with the thought of it. Killzone 2 will pwn every shooter ever made. Mark my words.
Looks insane, Feb 2009 is too far away.
Yesterday I commented that I didn't know what the heck you guys were looking at as I didn't think that KZ2 looked anything past COD 4. I happily retracted that statement. I think all BS aside, SONY and GG should be given major credit for the GRAPHICS alone. Its not just the character models that so amazing but the SCALE of the environments. I mean it has so much space and somehow seems so much BIGGER. The explosion where some of the best that I've seen. Fellow gamers unite as if all pans out right, we'll have a game that hopefully pushes the FPS genre that we all love.
It will only turn out to be 640p or less in the official release. :)
What, like a lot of 360 games are? This game and MGS have both been tested by Quaz51 and both at 720P 2xAA
just cus Rockstar messed up dont mean this game is, every game so far has run at native 720p or 1080p+60fps so shut the hell up, i sense jelousy
GAYLO3 is 520P Not to mention that GARBAGE BOX 3 FIX ME cant even support 1080P NATIVE resolution that gimped box 3 FIX ME is suitable for REPAIR SHOPS ONLY
rofl dont cry about it, its only a game .. :-D im just sayin, might aswell get ready to be disappointed by ur droidstation not being able to deliver. but good luck.
