Killzone 2 Demo Ready?

There is a hot new rumor today that Sony and Guerilla Games have secretly completed a playable demo version of Killzone 2..... and Sony plan to release the demo before Microsoft release their Halo 3 Beta!

Quoted from Luke Smith's Blog at 1up:

"Rumors pointed at the game's intended resurgence at their pre-launch Gamers' Day event last year. Ultimately, if the rumors are to be believed, Sony shelved showing Killzone 2 in favor of spotlighting Insomniac's new shooter franchise (and it will be a franchise) Resistance. The same rumors have pointed to Killzone 2 being much further along than previously expected -- with the apex of the rumor arc concluding that the game has been playable online for almost a year."

The story is too old to be commented.

I should think a playable demo exists!!! they have had long enough. If they are holding back till Halo 3 breaks cover then they must think they have a big hit on their hands. I think, even after the the whole CGI trailer nonsense, i hope the internal optimism proves all of the doubters wrong, and we know there are many MANY doubters!

This is the only game that will make the 360 and the ps3 go to true-war.

I mean

Motorstorm vs what? 360 don`t have any directly game to putt up against motorstorm on the ps3 so we don`t know witch one is better.
And none of those gams have been called Halo killer.

Then we have Resistance[<---spell check?] the game that we where told would bring GoW to the knees butt it was Gow that Curb stomped the Re.. to hell where it belong...

BUTT NOW!!!
The true halo "killer" is back, that if we should listen to watt they called the game when halo 1 was about to come out.

Could Killzone 2 be the HALO 3 killer?
let the real Game war begin!!!!

IN THE RED CORNER!!!!
KILLZONE 2 WITH HIS YOUNGER BROTHER KILLZONE 1 THAT WAS BADLY BEATEN BY HALO FOR 2 YEARS AGO!! Now his bing brother KILLZONE 2 is back to take the throne of the most beautiful gfx fps out in the first wave of games to the next gen consoles.

IN THE BLUE CORNER!!!!
2 MAJOR GAMES ( wins ;)), THE WORLD LOVE IT!, NO ONE HAVE BEAT HIM YET!
LOTS AND LOTS of BADGES and PRICES in GAME shows and MORE!!
NOW HE IS BACK!... HALO 3,,, the MASTER OF MASTERS!!!
so,,,, IS HE BACK TO TAKE THE THRONE ONCE AGAIN FROM THE "HALO KILLER"?

LET THE MATCH BEGIN!!

the announcement we've all been waiting for. (head nodding down, eyes closed with loud AC/DC in the background)......///

Hey, this game may well kick ass, but does anyone truly beleive ANY of the new consoles can do realtime graphics like that e3 video?
I don't think a current top of the line pc could even do that.

BrotherSic3633d ago

firstly of all can we make sure we all see that this is a rumor,

secondly i just looked at the killzone cgi footage and to be honest, graphically, it is not much better than gears. Of course the scripted action is great and but graphically i dont think it is now so impressive.

One thing that does come to mind if this rumor is true, i thought great games didnt have demo versions. + I think the Sony hype machine would already be in action if this were true

big_tim3633d ago

Halo 3 and the beta program. Does that mean that it won't be great? What about Lost Planet, Rainbow Six, and the others that have demos that turned out great.

BrotherSic3633d ago

you misunderstood what i said, i should have been clearly in the first place,

I think it was Epic that said great games dont have demos as they dont need them (speaking about gears). Which i do have to agree with but as you say a number of games are now releasing demos as Live users are getting used to getting demos of ever game.

I also dont see Halo 3 beta as a demo, a beta involves feedback, limited numbers of users (halo 3 does seem to have basically everyone), and probably the main characteristic ... problems/flaws

big_tim3633d ago

throw in my two cents. I knew Epic said that. I just wanted to point out that it wasn't true. I think that epic said that to cop-out of releasing a demo.

A beta is definitely for feedback. I agree. Demos get feedback, but not on the same scale.

As for me, you won't here any complaints about a company releasing a demo. Bring them on.

BrotherSic3633d ago

demos can be great - i think Lost Planet and Crackdown proved that no end but then again for every good example there are 5 poor examples...

Motorstorm for me comes to mind, i was really happy to see a game shop in leeds with the playable demo but i was really disappointed, they should have waited and released a better version

dantesparda3633d ago (Edited 3633d ago )

So i guess that GRAW2, RSV, Crackdown, and Halo3 aint that great then, cuz have (or in the case of Halo3, will have) demo's. And just cuz Epic (or anybody for that matter) says it, doesnt make it so, its just his opinion, thats all, not fact. And also, if you think that the CGI graphics of Killzone only look a little bit better than GoW, then you dont know anything about graphics. The CGI graphics of Killzone (or most CGI graphics for that matter) are many generations ahead of Gow! And no, thats not what the PS3 version will look like, it can only dream of looking that good. People while i do realize that Computer/360/PS3 graphics are getting a lot closer to that quality, the fact is, its not (there yet, give it a another generation or two)
