Collegiatetimes: The debate is endless. Video game oligarchies have ignited discussions over the best game console since the first system's inception. After my Sega Genesis broke after two days of ownership, I replaced it with a Super Nintendo at what was then Funcoland and haven't looked back since.
And the dispute has no end in sight. While the contemporary Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 debate is a tad more complicated, it's not hard to find someone who will stick to his guns. I'm assuming we can all agree that the Nintendo Wii offers a unique video game experience that is clearly intended for a different market. The Xbox 360 dominates in game sales with Halo and Gears of War titans, but Sony has made it plain it aspires to have its baby around much longer. The new Call of Duty wasn't that impressive, anyway.
Killzone 2 hits shelves this Friday and the wait has been well worth it. It is proof that a franchise can progress into a visual masterpiece that presents itself as one of the most concrete first-person shooters made thus far. The beta access recently shut down, and Friday can't come soon enough. As its name may imply, note that this is a very mature game, and if you're letting your nine-year-old play it, you might want to reconsider your parental standpoint. Heck, if you purchased a PS3 for your nine-year-old to begin with, you're suspect in the first place.
