"Impossible" to deliver shooter sequel on any other console

Heavy memory demands from Killzone 2's high-detail warzones mean that Guerilla's opus simply couldn't work on any console using standard DVD discs.

"Xbox 360 doesn't have Blu-ray," Hermen Hulst, managing director at Guerilla explains, "PlayStation 3 does. [A single level] is 2GB. We really need Blu-ray to make the game. I don't know how you could fit it on Xbox 360 without taking some shortcuts".

Because no other console wants this garbage. =)

gunnerforlife

Lol @ your grammar.

gunnerforlife3529d ago

so i take it that ur a deluded fanboi rite, just cuz u and every other xbots r scared of this game dosent mean u have to curse it u idiot. this will out class halo by a mile

Chexd3529d ago

LOL! i was literally gonna type

"because no one else will take it"

jokes aside hopefully this will improve from its first game. Seriously it does look good but some people forget its the equivalent of

"Enter the Matrix 2 is a PS3 Exclusive....take that bill"

come on! second time lucky!

Anal3529d ago

Its Black 2 we want to see!!!! Killzone looks like a dark mess. BTW the CG looked alot better.

rukusa3529d ago

Its going to be interesting how you guys will react if what youre saying will backfire.

Dont play with karma if youre not prepared for a surprise!

Blitzed3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

I cant believe how quickly you all flocked to this thread! Its too funny! I would love to see the things you all wrote had this been an XBOX360 exclusive! I bet all you guys would all be in here commenting on its greatness and all the Sony fanboys would be saying, just another shooter. I guess we'll never know, LOL! You fanboys are great entertainment though (although thats not really a compliment as I am laughing at you, not with you.)

And about the darkness of Killzone 2, its called atmosphere, you ever heard of it. Not everyone thinks running around in a shiny pink suit is cool! (and I own both consoles by the way)

radzy3529d ago

i dont know about this developer , but no one from the 360 owner wants this game.
we never asked for it .
we never did a "sony fanboy 13 year old" petition saying that we want this game.
has his office being flooded with emails that 360 owners are dyeing for this game or something.
i think he is trying to hype up killzone 2, especially in the time of halo 3.
we 360 owners would rather just halo 3 over any ps3 wannabe fps.
and if he knew something about the xbox 360 , he would surely know that we have PLENTY if not TOO MUCH fps already. what makes killzone so wanted? lets check:
a) a.i - hell no
b) graphics - gears pawns it.
c) online - i wont even answer this one , but i'll give you a hint.HALO 3!!!!!!!
d) environments - i dont see factories made with grey and brown very eye candy.

so mr developer please tell me why 360 owners want this game.pppllleeeeaaasssse.

Bloodmask3529d ago

You know what is even worse than a fanboy?? Someone who spends everyone of their posts bashing fanboys.

Do you see??

Blitzed3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

Too bad the end of your d!ck wasn't USB compatible eh Bloodmask, then you'd be in heaven. You could really show that XBOX how much you love it.

You cant take it? You put your self out there as a fanboy, so suck it up. You should realize that when your opinions are skewed by your unrelenting bias, you have no credibility at all.

*EDIT* @Bloodmask, I apologise for the first line, it wasn't necessary

Blitzed3529d ago

And just to clarify-

Where and on what someone spends there money doesn't affect you, so why do you care when someone buys a PS3? But when I come here looking for gaming news etc., having to sift through your bias and useless comments does affect me, so thats why I rip on you fanboys.

DrPirate3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

Jesus Blitzed.

Congratulations on becoming the first user on N4G that I track.

Nice. Bubbles for you.

I don't like Sony fanboys either, but I hate having to find out what 360 fans think of PS3 news good, or bad.

dantesparda3529d ago

Bravo Blitz! put these douchebag fanboys in their place! and i dont even own a PS3, but can honestly tell you that the 360 fanboys on this site make me way more sick than the PS3 fanboys. They are just dispicable! And p.s. Bioshock aint even that good, its just alright and downright weird if you ask me, and check my gamertag if you dont believe me and you will see that i am almost done with the game. So you know that i am not bullshitting you's

gerrard3529d ago

sad xbots fanbay, very sad indeed

madmike3529d ago

COME ON HOW MANY TIMES ARE PEOPLE SAYING THIS BULL THE TWO SYSTEMS ARE NEARLY THE SAME ITS NOT LIKE XBOX360 IS A OLD PC AND THE PS3 IS A 2000 POUNDS TOP END PC THEN I WOULD SAY ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO RUN. JUST ANOTHER FANBOY ARTICLE FROM A DYING SITE WITH NO CREDIBILITY ANYMORE. PLEASE READ THIS FANBOYS EVERYWHERE GET A LIFE. WHY IS THIS THE ONLY SIT WHERE YOU CANNOT JUST GET GAMING NEWS FOR GAMES THE ONLY THING I READ IS YOUR XBOX360 DIES AND FROM THE OTHER SIDE PS3 WITH NO GAMES OR THE WAIT STATION. PLEASE CAN WE GET BACK TO PROPER GAMING NEWS. THANKS

Scrooge3529d ago

I agree with Radzy's comment. The 360 owners aren't very sad about anything right now because of Halo 3. At this point, nothing can make them feel deprived. Developers saying that their PS3 titles can't be done on any other platform because of Blue-ray or Cell, or whatever reason, has been said over and over again. Frankly, why should we believe it anymore? Have they forgotten that compression techniques exist? Mass Effect is on one disc, how small do you really think that game is?

Evil0Angel3529d ago

1)is this shortcuts :
-comparison:which keep gotten advanced
-multi-disks
-learning how to write codes properly: from developers like :EPIC,BIOWARE

2)it is sytem exclusive: so it is suppose to take full advantage of the system,if it possible to be done in another system without changing anything ,than you are dumb Mr developer.

3)we heard the same about Resistance, Motorstorm.... LAIR and HS, but did this save the last 2 ? if the game suck no one interested even if it only can be done in NASA computers.make the game, let it get reviewed and once it get good reviews than someone will want to know if it can be done in other platform

4)this news did not get the reception like the one when we heard HS/LAIR cannot be done in anyother platform , WHY ? becuse unlike factor 5 and how promicing HS was , killzone franchise and GORILA (the devloper ) did not deliver anything that someone will not find in other games :
Graphic= gears /UT3/lair/crysis/MGS4 all are up to it
Gameplay= do not add anything new
A.I= the news came lately was not promising.however they still got time

power of Green 3529d ago

Doesn't even make any sense.

dantesparda3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

That, and "logic" also doesnt make that much sense to him either, Tabasco! lol! But then again it never does to these "fanboys" they are all just biased pricks, period! their opinions mean sh!t! they are just annoying and disgusting, thats all! So fvck' em!

Wow! Daishi, you're a smart one eh? maybe cuz the PC doesnt have the DVD size space constrain that they 360 has and if a game has to be bigger than a 8.5GB DVD then they can just compress more data onto the disc or use more DVD discs and fit it right on the HD, something the 360 can but has not done yet becuase of the stupid "Core" owners (or is it because of MS' own stupid sdecision to even have a Core version?). And games are still on CD? really? oh you must mean the games that are on like 3 or 4 or more CD's to add up to the size of a DVD game. Where the fvck are you from? cuz you obviously dont know what the fvck you are talking about. The only games that fit onto a CD nowadays are XBLA arcade games. So learn and then come back please, cuz right now you are looking real fvcking ignorant, typical dumb fanboy response

Daishi3529d ago

Then why don't PC games run on HD or BR? Space isn't such a problem as people make it out to be, heck you can still get some games on CD's!

MrSwede3529d ago

I hate to point out the obvious but PC´s do all have harddrives

Daishi3529d ago

True to a point, some use flash drives now(splitting hairs I know). They are saying that BR is a neccesity for the storage, which it is more of a convenience. You bring up a better point, the main neccesity for games is HDDs.

Fisher3393529d ago

So I take it, they are actually using the Cell's SPE's. Good Job.

2gb levels should be great, hella big or hella detailed, or both!

Can't wait

FirstknighT3529d ago

Well Lair was also "impossible" to go on the 360 and you know how well that game did.

Lord Anubis3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

what does technological progress have to do with direction. The way the game runs has little to do with the direction the game was taken.

:|

Look at Kinetica and look at God of War.

FirstknighT3529d ago

You mean the framerate issues??? You mean the horrible AI??? The horrible control??? Killzone 2 will fall in the same category as Lair. To much emphasis on making levels "bigger" and not enough on gameplay. The ps3 has a problem with framerate issues. Lair and Heavenly Sword both suffer from slowdown. But slowdown in a FPS is a big problem. No framerate issues on the 360.

lebaneseprince13529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

i like lair alot and am playin it right now

Lord Anubis3529d ago (Edited 3529d ago )

they need more time before release, where did you read heavenly sword has slow downs?

Anywho, PS3 is much more powerful system and even with these early titles its showing it. Factor 5 and Ninja Theory second offerings will prove it.

It doesn't change the fact that Killzone 2 has technology that can't be done on other system and first on any video game. Global illumination.
The game currently doesn't have the streaming engine nor the world illumination yet but is something they are working on.

fopums3529d ago

oh weird factor 5 is developing KZ2 now? no GG is and they know how to make a good game.

KZ1 was a good idea but broken, KZ:libertation was a great PSP title, and the only thing people are concerned about with KZ2 is the A.I. everything else works fine from what the hands on reports concerning the demo are reporting...

and they have plenty of time to polish it....

though yeah, that dude made a pretty good flamebait statement :D

toughNAME3529d ago

FirstKnight you beat me to it :P

ALMIGHTYPS33529d ago

FIRSTNIGHT, we all know how LAIR did???It was JUST RELEASED!!!!Do all of you XBOTERS HAVE A LOW IQ???? What you CRAPBOXERS don't realize is the ps3 has been out LESS THAN A YEAR and the PS3 games are comparable if not better to xbox's RIGHT NOW!!!!Oh my gosh,give it a year max and it will be OVER BOTGIRLS!!!Pray that ms comes out with 720 by then so you will have something to compete with the PS3ALMIGHTY!!!!!

SofaKingReetodded3529d ago

no framerate issues on the 360?? are fockin serious??

Glitches of War is a study in missing frames and drops alllll over the place.

what a tool.

just the fact that xbots have to lie out their ass about their underpowered console = GAME OVER to me

BLACKJACK VII3529d ago

Right. That's why Sony's Kilzone 2 runs at a blistering 30 fps @ 720p in 2008. More Sony Propoganda. It won't fit on dvd9, eh ? Alittle data dupication perhaps for that 4x laser ? Maybe Gorilla should take some lessons from a real developer like BIOWARE who have managed a 50+ hour next gen game with incredible graphics on ONE DVD9 in 2007.... Mass Effect: E3 2007 Best Console Game.

AngryTypingGuy3528d ago

@SofaKingReetodded - Gears of War ran fine for me. Apparently it ran fine for almost everyone, otherwise it wouldn't have won so many Game of the Year awards.

work on the 360 but hey, thanks ta Blu-Ray/ Cell more and more games will start showing the true capabilities of the PS3.

iceice1233529d ago

Oh wait, they get an average of 6-8 or in lairs case 4-5. Congrats on that.

Xbox is the BEST3529d ago

let you know when new and better technology (ps3) comes out to should blow the older technology (Xbox360) out the water but it hasn't happened yet and never will. 25 days to go
