BBC anchors commented on Halo 3 's launch while using Killzone 2 footage. Check the video.
Halo 3 is better than Killzone 2.
Halo 3 is ruling the world !
you clearly heard that Although Halo 3 would sell well but IT WONT have a wider audience.
in UK /EU/JAPAN halo 3 will not make any impact. in UK the impact would be far less than what halo 2/1 did. People in EU and JAPAN are just waiting for a price cut and nothing else.
FIFA 08 has already overtaken HALO 3 in terms of pre-orders in EU .
the ps3 version will be launching on september 28th and will murder HALO 3.
KZ2 will attract non gamers as well since it is both A MOVIE with ultrarealistic graphics and NEXT GEN physics/ai/gameplay
Nasim, please send us a postcard from Bizarro World and let us know how you're doing.
Thats pretty funny. Although, can anyone confirm this clip? That could have been easily added
lol at the fake report.
i live in the uk a and thats nathasha caplinski google her
not approving this but sure is funny
hhhhhmmmm as the hardcore MS boys said about the whole " SONY using PGR or was it FORZA?...to advertise GT" look look MS is using Killzone to promote HALO 3" just as sony had nothing to do with the GT pics, i dont believe MS has anything to do with this.
edit @ socommick: "i must be retarded to no have noticed" please buddy dont make yourself look retarded.
edit: thats right idiot correct yourself.
difference is that sony had pgr picture in their store. BBC made the mistake this time you must be retarded to not have noticed.
Doesn't look right... Screw PGR that was a repeated misstake at best this isn't even real.
and that makes it so in your mind. We know. We know.
This is real as I saw it today on TV.
newscaster hair is pretty much the same in Great Britain as it is in the US
Im not reffering to the bbc but all you who didnt get the sypnosis, the broadcast was reffering to Mature rating games and citing Halo as one of them, the footge for Killzone 2 was just in reference to it been a violent game, like later on they showed p1ss sports when talking about family games
look @ the top left just when killzone footage pops up.
I can't believe anyone here actually cares. Just look at those presenters, do you think they could tell the difference between Halo and Princess Peach?
"do you think they could tell the difference between Halo and Princess Peach?" Awesome comment. Bubbles for you.
Oh well, can't expect the video editors to know everything.
True that. I love how the BBC had to explain that a first-person shooter was a shooting game in the first-person and then compared Halo 3 to Wii Sports. Hah.
Why are people saying this isnt real? What difference does it make? Whoever set that up is a moron.
lol BBC is sometimes run by retards, anybody remember the taxi driver they bought in for Apple lawsuit.
I remember this well. It's legendary
Haha yeah, that guys face was priceless.
Anyway I just saw this on TV like a second ago. 'Tis true. D: Idiots.
lmao, BBC knows damn right how Halo 3 SHOULD look like...
AHAHAH, priceless! :p
apparently at Playstation forum, many of them reported that BBC 6 o'clock news shown Killzone 2 instead of Halo 3. Yep it is true.
Very funny though. Way to go, BBC! keep promoting Killzone 2 even though it is not out yet. ;)
I didn't know Nasim worked for the BBC
Why would a Sony fanboy try to make Halo 3 look that good on national TV?
come on he is not Sony fanboy, that is giving too much respect for that troll. One could argue he is trying to subconsciously implant KZ2 into viewers minds. just kidding.
did anyone read the youtube commetnts? WAffLEs!
This definately gives you the perspective of the European market. The 360 and Halo isn't everything in Europe. You blind U.S. 360 fans might learn something after watching this.
This wasnt what i was expecting...
Guess the Killzone footage should help move a few more copies of Halo 3 then ;)
Just kidding of course, but it shows how much the mainstream press knows of video games, even though it could be just a mistake hehe. The footage of Killzone wasn`t that long either.
That just made me more eager to buy Killzone2
but it was Hilarious
this is what happens when mainstream jump on the bandwagon
When i was watching channel 503 bbc news ON sky i saw it, i thought why or they showing Killzone 2 trailer and they are talking about Halo 3 and they didn,t even mention Killzone 2.
They funny thing is they didn,t mention killzone 2 or Playstation 3 not a word.
Either its a mistake or uses Killzone 2 footage for Halo3 story.
Trust me, the Killzone footage helped sell Halo 3 to somebody in the world who hasn't played 1 or 2. Killzone 2 looks awesome!
i just watched 10 o'clock BBC news.
For first time ever, i saw a gameplay of Halo 3. I played both Halo 1 and 2 and this Halo 3 is exactly the same! Just a hint of High definition. Why bother paying for something similar.
Killzone 2 has changed from Killzone 1 and i will certainly get that game instead.
Sorry folks, Halo 3 is not for me.
they showed Beta build....i just saw too. Its no biggy about Kzone either,,,,they used Wii sports aswell. IT was more a story about the industry in general.
they wish Halo looked that good
insult to Halo to be compared to killzone. Can you imagine the disappointment of the person seeing gameplay footage of kz2 and the guy pressing a button for half an hour. Also read the reviews on killzone 1 and showed that it sucked ass. Hopefully he'll notice how much that big shiny monster with the fuel tanks rips off from Bioshock's Big Daddy :-O.
Just Joking :-)
i watch it and it was on about vilent games then showed killzone fortage the some halo, then some will sports lol.
BUt its mainly about halo i think its the way they put it together which dont make no sence at all.
i guess i every one was a little fooled there.
How DARE they use KILLZONE 2 to sell halo3! They wished halo 3 looked that GOOD!
This just shows how out of touch the media is with games. television and newspapers view games as something little boys play with, a passing fad that will disapear and then they get a bee in there bonnet when someting like gta comes out. I quote 'the wii has been outselling these shoot em up games'. a wii is a console, a shoot em up a game...retards.
I remember them saying some time ago that gran turismo was agreat game on the nintendo 64.
The media needs to catch up. Its still in the stone age.
LOL, gotta love these "just add some cool action there, none will notice"
HALO3 just happens to be the biggest event in gaming history, everyone will notice :D
If you want awesome graphics and a some pretty good story get bioshock.
but if you want awesome story and pretty good graphics get halo3.
both games are recommended for fps vets and beginners.
and if your not in to both of the franchises it's fine.
i own both and i feel happy that the waiting is over i can now spend the holidays with my friends and family playing halo3, bioshock,gears of war,lost planet, and other good titles.
So master chief takes off his armor in this one.
Oddly enough he looks like the guy from killzone2.
Wait a minute, this whole time they were the same game.
Am confused. Halo is killzone and killzone is Halo.......
So that means that Sony is really Microsoft, DAMN!!
Viva Halo I mean Killzone, F#ck I mean Sony, damn BBC and their consiprecies.
Oh no they didnt!!!
The mediocre halo 3 is to generations behind KillZone 2.
its like promoting god of war using ninja gaiden pics from the nes era.
damn what a glaring error, cant believe they ran this story. Sigh - the y need to have the people that put together that clip fired. I live down the road from the BBC, maybe i should pay a visit.
haha im actually going to watch the news on catch up tv on demand.
but i dont understand how editors could actually mistake killzone for halo, they hardly look the same!
what gets me is that i bet they dont do this for metal gear solid 4, which in my eyes deserves it aswell :(
HALO 3 didn't need help being promoted. I think MS is doing that one pretty well. I haven't seen the video but if it is confirmed true, it would be funny and insulting at the same time. Halo 3 has its own distinct art that is vastly different from a game like GEARS or KZ2. It would really be an insult. MS could've used GEARS if they were going to do something "SONY-like" lol. Just kidding SONY guys. On the real, the more you guys bash HALO 3 the dumber you sound. BUNGIE NEVER boasted it will have life-like graphics, they only said they one create a game that would claim your free time. To keep bashing HALO 3 over and over again about the same thing is played out. Because in truth, the more you bash, the more you actually promote the darn thing. Why do you think companies try to change the subject when they are asked a question about a competitor, even if its bad news for them? Because bad publicity is STILL publicity! Big ups to BUNGIE for creating another great game. Now off HALO 3, have you guys seen Ratchet and Clank? I've never owned a SONY console but that game looks TIGHT!!!
I love the BBC :D
Obviously is preparing for this the reporter knew nothing about Halo so they simply Googled "Next Gen FPS" and Killzone 2 came up. Honest mistake for a layman.
I'm joking, I'm joking, jeeze, have a laugh ocassionaly guys instead of just typing "lol" for a substitute.
omg, what fn retards, id say who ever did that needs to lose thier job!
The report was on "mature" video games vs "family friendly" games - they also showed Wii Sports. Geez...
That might be relevant if it didn't say "Halo 3" in the corner while Killzone was playing. Geez...
that explains the high sales and preorders of halo3 =P
please dont take that serious..lol
the interviewer was also funny and wanted to praise the Wii and tried to push forward the stereotype of Halo gamers as being anti-social loser. It was obviously a very original piece of journalism.
It was a really pathetic interview by the Beeb done b/c they had to say something about this huge cultural event; the interviewer reminded me of their sports announcers giving American Football, Baseball and Ice Hockey scores you can see from their expressions and their tone that they don't really understand what they are talking about; the proverbial fish out of water.
Mind you to be fair Sony used Project Gotham screen shots to promote Grand Tourismo.
the killzone 2 part looks like it was thrown in there and not from the original report. nice job richard 9ick head.
Well, all I can say is, if this is real footage, us guys here at Guerrilla are really happy :P I just came in to work and was greeted with this lovely footage :D
What a kick in the teeth for Microsoft! ..... Boom!!
I wondered why Halo 3 was selling so well! (JOKE)
lmao @ Europeans. they sound funny and are clearly retarded. they should have consulted with someone who has played at least one game in their entire life before defaming halo's glory with that uglyass krapzone intro with those ugly-faced, bald idiots yelling at each other again LOL.
but in all honesty, that footage was just spliced together by some sony dog doing his part serving the SDF.
You are so dumb I don't even know where to begin.
defaming isn't a word. You wanna call the entire Europen continent stupid? Take a look at whos running your country. Scary ain't it?
Nearly every review of Halo 3 says it looks like Halo 2 in HD. It may by a great game, but in the visuals deparment, not the greatest game ever. And only blind 360 fanboys can say Killzone looks ugly. Might play like a sack of sh*t, but it looks damn good.
This report had nothing to do with Son, it was BBC report about a 360 game, you ignorant fanboy.
