In an exclusive interview conducted by Gamereactor during the Games Convention event last week in Germany, Killzone 2 developer has hintedd that, a demo for Killzone 2 is surely on it's way to the PSN store.
This will make for a nice Christmas present for Ps3 owners. Better yet, why dont they throw in the MGS4 demo a little earlier as well ?
However i feel bad for competitors who would be killed the moment KZ2 demo is launched
compatitors will be busy with the so much full games they got, they will not worry about u and this 1 DEMO you got, so now you can go and sleep at night sweet heart (x x x)
This ain't happening.
There's no way they'll have a demo available before Christmas.
I believe at GC they were using massive developers machine to demo the game.
They still have alot of work to do to have a demo readied by years end.
Just expect a Beta around E3 2008. Then you won't be disappointed if no demo shows.
i think you're wrong bro.. i heard in the E3 presentation that the game was running on the ps3, if it wasn't i'm sure the press would be mentioning it every 5 mins cause they like the flamewar.. so if you're right, how about a link
But it was article posted on N4g at GC where the playing unit was revealed in a small viewing room as not a PS3.
Competitors have been playing demos since you were swimming in ken's sack
Edit: Tnx guys I aim to please and in case of ps3 owners displease.
Btw bubbs for both of you for giving me bubbs.
@sak500 even though i see you as a ps3 hater that sak comment made my morning, bubbles
Good one sak500, bubble for you also:)
And a bubble for you The Wood just for being a good sport about it too.
Hell, bubbles for everyone!!!!, Naaa, just for those two.
Nasim you one bubble wonder you...lol @ you, no demo is going to "Kill the developers" are you serious?
"Hey guys let's get an xbox 360 and Halo 3"
"What NO dude let's get a PS3 I heard their is a sick demo on the system"
"Oh ok cool dude let's go for the demo we can just play it over and over and over for a year til the game comes out"
your a sad sad little boy.
this will set the recored stright once and for all .
i just hope they do not announce BD/DL versions cause this mean we will have to pay for this one also
just 1 thing missing
I'm pretty sure that's true, and sounds right too. I mean it's been a long tough road and it's still slow to go on MGS4, and in no way do they want a LAIR type catastrophy, so I'd say no here unless a 2009 release date is in the works.
A demo slows or shuts down forward progress to an extent, but it also does aleviate any potential out of the box problems.
I'd say do the demo and put off the realease until most all bugs are worked out.
OMG i cant wait for this game at all i definately need to play part 2
they didnt say it was on its way, all they said is that in todays world of gaming you need to have a demo
if u read the text below the comment he made.......it said that a demo is planned
actually i thought they said an online beta was planned.
they can probably do both......multiplayer beta.....single player demo
dude i dont see how a demo is planned! the link is just a pic?
please tell me wtf is goin on
I'd like to see a demo because I am VERY skeptical of what the gameplay quality is like considering GG's track record and what was recently said on 1up Yours
check out the game informer article. they think the AI is aggressive and responds to the players mistakes.
Actually I've loved all the games GuerillaGames have made so far
tell me wat it is! i cant see anything but a pic on the link
...my bad ya all..This is the link
what the heck? I cant see anything ll I can see is a screenshot
It makes NO mention that it is coming this year. He only said in this day and age, he thinks a demo is a must have for any games. They make up that crap about this year.
No demo until next year. Same with the public beta.
The link jumps to a picture. Please fix this issue for the main page because I can't read the text on that picture.
I think the demo is coming this year, but the public beta is coming next year.
It matters not what you think. As there is nothing at all to back that up, and it is not happening. Way to soon.
Cant wait to play Killzone 2 demo...
nothing is coming this year,this is fake
yeah, I didnt want to get excited, I would like somthing more concrete....now if we could just get a haze demo...
its my top fav game to get this year I WANT THAT DEMO OF HAZE
who cares about the game...id give credit just for having the balls
Is that Belak and Janssen in your avatar??
Can't tell, can you guess mine?
ever since the E3 presentation all ive been thinking is release a demo when halo 3 hits... hahaha it would be something!
This makes me happy.
Would be nice to get this soon. Probably is going to be the level they showed so it's probably near ready. A week or 2 after Halo3 is about the perfect time.
I secretly thought Gears of war looked better than Killzone but after seeing this video, I think Killzone is the best looking game on a console. I am so impressed with the lighting in this game, even the glare coming from the Helgast's goggles looks awesome. I also love the animations when you shoot the enemies. I think the single player is going to be good but looking at this game I just feel that the multiplayer is going to be amazing. I can't wait to play this game.
Here's the link to the video.
a demo would be awesome!
Hopefully we will se it this year
i hope the demos not 2Gb. lol
I hope it is. at least then we would have an entire level. as much as i loved it i dont want to spend an hour and a half downloading something as short as the heavenly sword demo again.
Nowhere did the devs state there would a demo before 2008! Ter Heide just said he thinks a demo is mandatory "in this day and age". Obviously Killzone 2 will have a demo, but he didn't say when it would be up on the PS Store, let alone say it would be out before 2008.
Just wanted to clear that up ;)
Edit: why the hell did I get a "Disagree"?! Please tell me what leads you to disagree with me. Retard...
You suck peewee3 lover.
Same here i have LAIR its amazingly beautiful,
MY PROS AND CONS
GRAPHICS + PROBABLY THE BEST GRAPHICS WITH THOUSAND ENEMIES,NO NOT 4 OT 8 ENEMIES THOUSAND OF ENEMIES WITH AMAZING ENVIRONMENT ALL DYNAMICS
GAMEPLAY - NO OPTION FOR MOTION CONTROL OR ANALOG CONTROL
I LOVE LAIR YOUR SKILLS WILL DEFEND HOW WILL YOU JUGDE THE GAME , FOR THOSE REVIWER GAVE THIS GAME A BELOW 7 IS F KING NOOBS
can someone delete this?It doesnt even show an interview its just a stupid screenshot!
If this is true then the game is on track for Feb 2008 schedule, and whats funny is that demo will get played more then any other game.
if a demo would be coming out this year, as i think Killzone 2 will be delayed to around winter 2008, so they can get it right. But we`ll see. A demo would be great though, so people can get their own hands on it, and see if they`ve managed to correct the mistakes from Killzone 1 and if it plays good. I would really want to get my hands on the multiplayer the most, as i`m sure the singleplayer will be great.
I liked the boss battles here. It should add some variation to the game (which was a problem with the original). Can`t wait to see what crazy bosses Guerilla can come up with.
i really want this. I hope its not a rumor.
But a demo as soon as possible would be great, because not only will gamers be able to try a possible 2GB level, they'll be able to give the devs good feedback about the pros and cons, allowing that GG can improve their game to the maximum (in attempt to achieve this legendary AAA status.) But since GG said that they already know what they have to implement in KZ2 to significantly enhance what was ZK1, they might bring the demo later that '07. But, it'll still be smart to bring it in maybe November or December of '07 if they think they got everything right. So, even if the demo ends up superseding what was the dissatisfying KZ1, than this way, sales might skyrocket from the very day this game is released.
I will be smiling from ear to ear when this demo comes out and doing back flips.
Mutiplayer maps would not take up 2GB's on their own sa they would have to compress some of the textures and other stuff just do you don't have to download a massive file.
Also, the devs said that there was gonna be an online beta for Killzone 2. A demo I think not, would be nice though.
but i'll be too busy with Heavenly Sword, Folklore, Ratchet and Clank, Unreal Tournament, Haze, Uncharted, Assassin's Creed to care if the demo hits or not.
don't get me wrong, i'd *LOVE to see Killzone 2 running on my PS3 *THIS YEAR, but it won't kill me if it doesn't.
demos take *TIME to make, and they'd have to split their resources to work on the game, and the demo at the same time.
sure, they could probably go with an older build, but that could cause more harm than good if it's buggy and incomplete (just look at the Assassin's Creed glitch at E3, and the ridiculous backlash that game has received).
we'll get the demo when we get it, and we'll get the game when we get it.
thankfully, there's plenty of other quality exclusive and multi-player titles hitting that we should have our eye on in the meantime.
The last time I read something about Killzone 2 it was rumored too be at least summer/fall 2008. With some of their AAA planned games failing like lair/heavenly sword, both have issues that if they had more time they would of been completely different games. Lair with its control issues and heavenly sword with its short gameplay. Hell look at warhawk and tell me that it wasnt rushed out with no single player component too compete for the holidays.
You dont consider a 6-7 hour game a failure. It scored low for this reason alone. dont have too be a fanboy too point out problems but you got too be one too defend them. Honestly you even read my post or you just jumped at the part where i call these games failures. metacritic has it at 80%.
umm excuse me, how did heavenly sword fail???? It averages 8-9 so to you thats failure?? Please don't let the fanboy in you start talking
I cant see them putting the demo out that soon....
the demo has been played by everyone of the game sites and mags. and the devs said it weighs in at 2.5 gigs. with compression they can get it to 1.4gigs on the PSN. not only that the demo in pre alpha has yet to cross alpha. and both Fill and GG ensured us that the game drops between feb and march 08, a beta was said to be planned that means they can host a 1-2 month beta in december through january and close it 3 weeks before a near feb or march release. also they could drop the single player portion of the demo in Nov to give us a tas. because demo's are pretyy much beta test for single player games while most of the time now Betas or mostly for multiplayer portion, ala the COD4, warhawk and Halo3 Multiplayer betas that took place.
in all honesty if the game is to release in the next 6-8 months a beta could be released december and a beta could fall in january just be for what looks to be an end of febuary 08-early March 08 release.
all i can say is go right ahead.
I've made my choice, I really need to hurry up and buy a PS3!! I can't take this anymore!!! lol
Demo's and Betas are very different btw.
I cant wait for this game that video was sweet, this is gonna blow Halo out of the water.
