This time we will compare Sony’s best first person shooter series. Yes, it’s time to compare Killzone 3 and Killzone 2."

Every system has limits which results in to next generation of consoles. The PlayStation 3 had limits so it gave rise to the PlayStation 3. But I gotta admit PS3 has some serious muscle.

seann2830d ago and people agreed.

for whats its worth there are some obvious changes in the visuals(a step forward, since i wasnt that clear).

hay2830d ago

I'm more amused by disagrees given to Rashid. Hilarious.

Zachmo1822830d ago

lol it's funny how Rashid has disagrees....Looks like The PS3 is a super machine and it's 5000 years ahead of it's time.

The Wood2830d ago

some people may understand that KB's comment was tongue in cheek so they are disagreeing because it was taken seriously

Others may of disagreed because the ps3 was said to have serious muscle...You just never know on

The ps3 has shown it has the games with the best graphics

*checks clock*...back in a bit

Red_Orange_Juice2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

I thought KZ2 was fantastic, but KZ3 is outstanding, lightning, weapons, can't wait

ShinMaster2830d ago

I like these sequel comparisons to help note improvements.
They're much more entertaining and less dumb than same game comparisons on different systems.

ABizzel12830d ago

Killzone 3 looks so much cleaner and overall better than Killzone 2.

inveni02830d ago

The testament to KZ (and the PS3) is that KZ3 could look exactly like KZ2, and it would still be the best looking console shooter available.

Dee_912830d ago

makes KZ2 look shitty lol

tucky2830d ago

lol. ... kz2 looks even better. it's the beginning of the end for the ps3. Super lol

Z7772830d ago

Lol, you made it at first sound like something the Xbots can agree with which is also a fact that each generation the limits are less and less then you go on to say how the ps3 basically is that much of a beast being able to show the unbelievers that it has powers yet to be unleashed (even still) yet the xbots deny that as a FACT lol....

Can't w8 4 KILLZONE 3!

SeanRL2830d ago

Dude, never question KB, never.

talltony2829d ago (Edited 2829d ago )

Sony freed up 70mb of ram since killzone 2 was released so of course all future exclusives will look better.

Joule2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

Killzone 3 looks better

RedDevil speaks the truth.

DirtyLary2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

I just hope the levels are more wide open. I hated the rocket spam in the hallway battles. die/spawn/spam/die/spawn/spam die game play got old , but it sure looked pretty.

redDevil872830d ago

and its only in BETA. GG will raise the graphics bar on consoles yet again.

Redrum0592830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

as much as i loved kz2, i disliked the grainyness of the screen and the shadows in the corner of the screen when playing campaign. it looks to me like they fixed that.

kz3 is gonna pwn visually and gameplay-wize
i can only imagine the pixel count in these screens

Kleptic2830d ago

its almost like GG left the rocket launchers in killzone 2's multiplayer just to show how ridiculously powerful the engine was...

32 players all firing rockets and once in a courtyard and having the game not lag at all or slow down was simply incredible...even though from a gameplay standpoint it was more annoying than anything...

Sevir042830d ago

KZ3>KZ2 My gosh KZ3 looks cleaner and sharper in details and texture quality has gotten a great boost. my God the techs of GG and the PS3 are milking the PS3's boobies for all the milk it's got. I cant wait to see UC3!!!

using low res particle effect seems to disagree with you

OMG.. Low res particle explosions !!!!

Not getting this game now.... /s

RedDragan2829d ago

Your precious Halo doesn't even come close the Killzone 2, while Killzone 3 just accelerates ahead even further!

PRHB HYBRiiD2829d ago

this comments make me lol so hard....

fooltheman2829d ago

and so what?
It's alpha footage

TheBlackSmoke2829d ago

Sorry but at this point no 360 fanboy should ever be trying to critique the graphical capabilities of PS3.

This year splinter conviction, alan wake and halo:reach were supposed to be the best looking games evarrrrrrr. Each one failed at that one by one and they are no longer mentioned. please move on nothing to see here

Do you really think KZ3 has low res particles?

Why to bother looking at old screenshots

A 720p video of KZ3 beta. Enjoy guys

Dont miss the commentaries. Guy says KZ3 is the best looking PS3 game, beating UC2 no problems, and keep in mind this is MULTIPLAYER footage.

@bellow boing

Of course, but he is playing the game while I bet you dont have a PS3.

itchy182830d ago

and don't forget to add, it's still in Alpha-code!

boing2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )


secksi-killer2830d ago

i thought kz2 was better in the graphics department than u2.. but that lookis even better. imo, if things dont change, and some dev doesnt create another monster gam engine. then you are looking at the pinnacle of graphics on this gen of consoles.


now please guerilla two things. either keep r2 for shooting or give us customisable controls...and hurry up and release this.

ALFAxD_CENTAURO2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

Don't bother with the Trolls.

While real gamers are playing Killzone 3 with PS Move and DS3 Controllers + 3DTV.

Trolls will stay in N4G complaining about Killzone 3 and PS3 because they don't have the money to afford it.

raztad2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )



Regarding the control layout. I saw a video where there is an option to switch R1<->R2 to shoot. The same thing with L1,L2.

GG is fixing all the complains and adding more stuff on top. Look how the guy says there is no lag. He was playing too much like in CoD, but KZ3 is still a mainly hip firing game like previous KZ. I expect people from both camps to be happy with the gameplay.

PRHB HYBRiiD2829d ago

looks like a masterpiece to me, i wish i had a ps3 just for this game...and gt5...and little big planet 2...and uncharted :'(

nickjkl2829d ago

thing about kz2 is that some objects in the distance dont get rendered even though its not that far

like sometimes i can zoom in with an assault rifle and have this random pillar come into view when it wasnt their before

talltony2829d ago

Who can deny how good this game looks. Best looking fps on console hands down. I mean look at it and just accept it.

If Sony can find a way to update the PlayStation Network to support cloud gaming, then yes, the PS3 has no limits.

raztad2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

CellBE arch is network aware. I think we have even seen GT5 footage running on two or more PS3s to produce a massive image.

IHateYouFanboys2830d ago

@raztad: so what? you can hook up 3 xbox 360s together and play Forza 3 on 3 TVs, creating one giant image so you can see almost 180 degrees of view. you could also do this with forza 2.

raztad2830d ago


Too bad my example wasnt the best then, if the xbox does something similar means it is nothing special. Let us forget about that.

baodeus2830d ago

hum....then you don't really need a powerful console anymore. It will just serve as a hub for games. Everything else is done on cloud (If i remember correctly, cloud suppose to be able to garnish all hardware power or something?)

RedDragan2829d ago

Cloud will not hit off folks, the sooney you realise that the better. The worlds internet is not quick enough for it!

End of cloud discussion

Gamingbolt sucks. Please can we ban their articles? They're invariably horribly written.

Even their motto is bad. "Get a bolt of gaming now"??? What the f*ck does that even mean? Sounds like a bad malt liquor tagline.

Bobbykotickrulesz2829d ago

Get a bolt of gaming... NOW.

Some edgy shit right there, guys.

MNicholas2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

Ever heard of the theory of relativity?

Then again, it is a theory, isn't it?

When I see GT5 rendering 16 cars at 60fps with such high fidelity at 50% better resolution than it's competitors on what's basically an over-clocked Nvidia Geforce 7900GT, I am almost moved to agree with you.

Surely Kazunori Yamauchi has sold his soul to the devil to circumvent the laws of reality.

Here's some supporting evidence:

tacosRcool2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

It does mean that but does that stop it with visuals like this!

DigitalAnalog2830d ago (Edited 2830d ago )

Killzone 3's pre-Alpha only looks better because of a new environment and MLAA. There's no way they'll focus graphics THAT early in the game (remember the GOWIII demo and the Final Retail build). The game will definitely have distinguishing graphics by next year.

-End statement

shnarbis2830d ago

this game looks amazing
but many of the killzone 2 picture DEFINITELY including shot 4/5 was a pre alpha build of kz2 and was a picture used numerous times before the games 2009 release. so to compare the two is somewhat unfair.
