Dean Takahashi of VentureBeat offers his hands-on assessment of the Killzone 3 preview. The game looks great, but the 3D TV and 3D glasses are underwhelming.
uh oh this is going to get ugly *grabs popcorn*
idk halo3 is fun for the masses. KZ you have to have a taste for intense badass gun play. KZ3 needs split screen online, then it might come close imo. halo is fun, KZ2 i get an adrenaline rush every time i play. it is totally different. like comparing mario kart to motorstorm.
"it is totally different. like comparing mario kart to motorstorm." exactly, while both are shooters they both focus on completely different aspects.
"Sony’s Killzone 3 looks amazing, but its 3D TV version disappoints"
so many games killed halo!! to name few: 1: bioshock 2: Call Of Duty 4 3: killzone 2 4: Modern Warfare 2 5: battlefield 2 bad company 2 6: bioshock 2 to name few!!
It's gonna get ugly. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
As soon as the idiot that wrote "Halo Killer" and "3D is a killjoy", I quit paying attention. I don't want a "Halo Killer". I don't like Halo. I like KZ the way it is, thank you. And 3D? This guy is the first to not say that KZ looks amazing in 3D...so I don't believe him.
not even one week since the embargo of killzone 3 lifted...and its 2004 all over again...
Halo releases on 360 in September of 2010...when is KZ releasing? I think Reach will sell pretty good...You won't need a new TV to play it either....win/win...
Think of it this way: Yes, to get the 3D experience of Killzone 3, you need to have a 3D TV, but to get the online experience of Halo: Reach, you need to have internet and XBox Live. Don't NEED the extras for either game, but it adds something to the experience and the requirements for both can be used for other things as well.
You've become a real low-down troll. What are doing, trying to convince people that you NEED a 3DTV to play? I remember similar low down troll scum that tried to convince people that you NEEDED an HDTV to play the PS3. Is Microsoft writing you a check, or are you just completely mad? Spreading PR videos all day....I almost feel bad for you, but it's hard to have sympathy for a zombie.
KILLZONE 2 ALREADY IS A HALO KILLER.
Halo is still alive and is a sales monster.
with "Halo killer".. just want to point out that only ppl calling it a "halo killer" are cheap website who need hits.. and ps3 fans ends up paying the price.. and for the record.... Halo is xbox and killzone is on ps...how come games on different platform kills each other... didnt COD 4 or MW2 already killed halo 3...? and he is complaining about 3dtv and glasses underwhelming.. he must be using SD tv.. i remember that my transition from SD to Full HD wasn't good .. it gave me massive headaches but now i cant watch anything if its not HD... lol peace
Please note: This is not a quote from Sony or Guerilla Games.
yea, seriously. This is exactly the same thing that happened when KZ1 came out, these stupid publications came out with these assumptions.
These stupid publications are quite intelligent actually. They call it a Halo Killer, some people pick up on it and use it. When the game is released the same publication then writes a article about how Sony where wrong to call it a Halo Killer and it has too much variety or something.
I didn't know you worked PR for Sony Pirate Thom. Anywho, I've said it before and I'll say it again. A game CAN'T kill another game. Its not possible. KZ3 won't make anyone stop playing Halo: Reach or forget all the awesome moments they experienced in the Halo franchise. The same works vice versa. BOTH franchises are great and if u can't accept that...ur not a gamer, in my eyes at least. "I didn't say I did, but I'm going to point out every time the media calls it a Halo killer." Ummm...okay
I didn't say I did, but I'm going to point out every time the media calls it a Halo killer.
so retarted.... Dead
seriously! You're just a clever troll.
Sure people will think this is quoted from Sony or GG.
AH here comes the sony's loyal brigade to start hitting out on the articles against their leaders. headed by piratethom who had 9+ bubbs on old site which sadly can't be replicated here due to strict account controls. With the way he has been defending the mighty sony empire he could easily have been mistaken for being big KAZZA s alter ego. On topic, i've watched 3d movies in theater, watched 3D tvs in action in malls, plan on buying either a sammy 46" 3D TV bundled with 3D bdplayer and 2 glasses or panasonic one for 2800$ but i agree playing games for extended period on 3d will not be fun. Movies are 1.30hours long and can give you some minor dizziness but when you're fully engrossed in the game, in 3D it will really cause issues on your brain or eyes.
How do you know? Have you played a 3d game for an extended period of time before? GG has already stated in another interview, I believe with Eurogamer, that they implemented different levels in the game. At certain points in the game they implements 3d that, although was much better, strains the brain too much. Mostly they use a technique that strains the brain less so you can play it for prolonged periods of time. I am sure that there will people who won't be able to stand it but I have no problems and that is all that matters. Besides it's optional, not mandatory.
I can't speak from experience, but the 3D technology used in TV's should be easier on your eyes than what's used in theaters. The theaters use polarized images viewed through polarized glasses, but there is probably a possibility of depolarization causing one eye's image to "leak" into the other's. The TV tech (the display alternates the two images at high frequency, synchronized with active "LCD shutter" glasses), if properly synchronized, completely separates the two images and should be perceived by the brain exactly like real-life is.
yeah i'm loving the fact that certain idiotic factions cant all bubble each other up for bashing the other console. although, it certainly hasnt improved the posting on here....and removing the open zone ?? lol wtf! but, i think we need to wait until 3D games actually get here before we decide what will work and what wont! personally, i'm devestated that i only 6 months ago purchased a large and expensive samsung! because f"*k me, i want kz3 and gt5 in 3D in my living room !! i will just have to wait and see how fat the christmas bonus is.
@ above guys. Samsung and other companies have given out warnings about extended viewing of 3d themselves also that childeren are more susceptible to disorientation and nausa then adults but still caution adults about extended use. So tell me which hardcore gamer plays a game for only 1 hour everytime they play a game. usually i can say 2~3 hours are about average so playing in 3d can certainly casue some issues.
I agree with sak500...every 3D movie I've seen in theaters was absolutely annoying by the end...especially Avatar, due to its length...I walked out of My bloody valentine...not because the movie sucked, it was actually a decent cheesy horror movie...but the theater I saw it in had the lights on way more than needed (a common problem I've read in older theaters)...and my head and eyes hurt so bad i wanted to throw a brick at someone... Up! was the least annoying for me, possibly because it wasn't too long and it was a bright movie... I'm not the least bit excited for 3D viewing at home be it games or movies, if its anything like my experiences in theaters...
Oh god, not this crap again?
typical downplaying of everything sony does. how does this site feel about natal?
I'm not sure it's crossed your mind, but have you considered that Sony is not infallible?
People are so f'ing stupid. I have yet to see any game kill another game. Especially when they are totally different and on different systems. The only thing Halo and KZ have in common is they are both FPS's. Guess what, there are a lot of FPS's. On the topic of 3D, I have heard from multiple places that it just doesn't look as good. I'm sure the experience is pretty damn cool, but it seems that graphically it just doesn't hold up to traditional HD.
Logic. N4G. No mixy.
Look at those screens O_O Oh and f*** off with the "halo killer" crap. Get so bored of hearing that.
Looks to me like killzone 3 is reaching high end pc level graphics. Can't wait. Killzone 2 still impresses me when I put it in.
Damn, when is a game finally going to kill Halo so the "halo kiler" crap can finally take end.
So around that time.
What's funny is that "killing" a franchise only happens when they stop making games for that series. So, until we don't see any new Halo games for 5 years, Halo won't be dead. In other words, "killer" games don't really exist. Games kill themselves.
who's dubbing this a halo killer? certainly not sony
HALO KILLER!! They should just make a PS3 game called HALO KILLER.
Only Halo can kill Halo, same as only KZ can kill KZ, same genre(FPS), but still two totally different games.
When was the last time Halo set a standard in the fps genre? Standards in graphics, story, and gameplay.
Define set a standard. Would a standard be putting Xbox Live on the map? What a standard be being the most popular online console FPS franchise ever?
Halo 1 set the standards for all FPS games since 2001 by introducing the two weapon limit, introducing the Golden tripod of weapons, grenades, and melee, perfecting the controls for Console FPS games, perfecting vehicle combat, large and open environments, Rechargeable shields, etc. Halo 2 introduced rechargeable health (no more health packs), and it's online matchmaking and party system was fairly innovative at the time. Halo 3 refined what Halo 2 set out to do and also took a step further with Forge mode and of course Theatre Mode, it's custom options also outmatch every other FPS game released this generation and it's only rival in that is the original Perfect Dark. It also had a fairly advanced lighting system it was the first major FPS game this gen to include 4 player online co-op successfully. The Halo franchise has set alot of standards.
So then the last Halo to set a standard was Halo 3? That game released in 2007. Since then 2 other Halo's have been released and another is in beta (neither of which are ground breaking). In the time between Halo 3 and the announcement of Halo reach numerous FPS's have set standards that Halo will not 'reach'. Including KZ2 (best graphics, emersion, and change on the fly mp system) BFBC2 (destructability and sound quality) MAG (most players in a game ever with no lag) COD ( most intense sp and rpg like mp) and resistance ( 8 player coop and a story ppl actually care about). Halo isnt the only game that has set standards and shouldnt be the standard for any other fps.
Oh okay so your definition is selective. Go troll somewhere else.
Funny you say that because your definition would be selective as well, wouldn't you say? I believe all he is saying is that Halo is NOT the holy grail of FPS's, that many FPS's BEFORE halo brought ALOT to the genre. You don't and shouldn't get brownie points for reinventing the wheel. Maybe if you guys were older and Halo was not the first FPS you played you guys could see that.
A game does NOT have to be (said game) Killer, and why when another shooter comes out it has to be a Halo Killer? anyone play Planetside? Funny thing is SONY already has a "Halo" game, and no It's not Haze LOL, It's Planetside and has been out for years, It's a MMPOG, even the art is almost alike, I wish they'd bring that to the PS3!.
killzone 2 was the halokiller...killzone 3 is the afirmacion
If Killzone 2 was a Halo Killer then why is Halo not dead?
It ain't certain people just want to believe like it's true. Halo ain't dead. People still play that game 'til this day
The title is just there to stir up the emotions of a certain fanbase, I wouldnt pay any attention to it. The entire article honestly couldve been summed up in this sentence - "The visuals I saw last night were not finished, and Hulst said they are still early in development."
Hardly. For the most part, the author showered the game with praise and provided an excellent preview. He didn't like the 3D, but there was much more to the article than that. But I agree with you about the title. Which is a shame, because the original title isn't flamebait. Now, the article will be overshadowed by some idiot.
This problem is REALLY easy to solve. If you don't like 3D, then don't utilize it! They aren't makign it 3D only so what's the big deal?
Why do companies still want Halo killers? Halo hasn't been the thing to kill for years now. Probably COD in terms of popularity
Its your PS3 fan boy buddies who are naming the entry in N4G.It may be the Sony's response to Halo, but no where in the article does it say anything about being the "Halo Killer".If you want KZ2 and 3 to not be called the "Halo Killer" maybe you should take it up with them.
title of flamebait, cuz in this article sony or guerrila games NOT mention this words.
Sagat is a Halo Killer.
not this halo killer stuff again.
You can expect halo killer once bungie makes somethign for activision. It would need to be more cartoonish with more feminie colored suits and should be able to jump unaturally high and also be able to teabag their dead enemies
Say It Ain't So, Joe..
Since killzone 2 it seems the most hate comes from pc sites. So now that 3DTV is a reality for high class citezens im already prepared for the onslaught of PC websites hating on killzone and 3D. Its just too goddam predictable lol!
The media and all should just kill the "Halo killer" crap because each time they post an article stating that it means the person that wrote knows halo is better and is just jealous and others who agree with the "Halo Killer" statement are just as much as envious of Halo as the person who wrote it.
I don't give a sh*t what this guy thinks about 3D. What I do like is that even he has to admit that "it will be visually breathtaking". And the words "jungles" and "terrifying monsters" in one sentence also caught my eye. And those screens. Damn'.
First, Halo killed ITSELF IMO. Second, I for one am excited about gaming in 3D, expecially something like KZ3.
Haha havn't heard this twice before ;) Bet this article hits the top front page with retaliation rage!
halo killer my arse halo is the daddy and the reason killzone even exists u ps3 fangirls should worship master chief it was he who proved fps could be done on consoles properly hence killzone 1 on ps2 which if i remeber correctly was rubbish oh well il play killzone 3 and halo reach as i am a gamer not a fangirl also looking forward to natal overshadowing every thing at e3 and i garuntee gears 3 will be shown with natal controls in some form thats the reason im guessing its not releasing till 2011 to get natal implemented
