I'll preorder this from PSN the minute its up. KZ2 and 3 remain my favorite MP and the 4 on 4 in here is going to eat up some life since they are bringing Warzone to the Vita.

i dont have a Vita, a big fan of Killzone

And people were doubting the Vita could look that good.... looks amazing!

Only thing I don't like is the 8 player online, wish it at least had 12.

TheFirstClassic2913d ago

Yeah that's the most disappointing thing for me. I think I'm actually going to enjoy the campaign more though, looks like it puts more emphasis on gameplay than the console series.

I thought it was 8 Vs 8, and confirmed?

BanBrother2913d ago

I think they really want to nail the graphics down first. I never though visuals could'look that nice on the Vita. With 32 players, they would have to scale back the graphics even more. If it is 8v8 though, I'm sure everyone would be happy. If the maps are well designed, then 4v4 should be quite fine.

Need to have drop in-drop out MP though,'so the games aren't too unbalanced (the first Gears of War worked wonderfully with 4v4, but if someone left during a ranked game, it sucked as no-ne else'could fill in)

BanBrother2913d ago

Higher player count is good, but not necessary. 4v4 on a small map feels the same as 8v8 on a big map etc. With less players, there will also be less latency between everyone. I think it will work out fine, although I would have preferred 6v6.

one2thr2913d ago (Edited 2913d ago )

True, true and even so I'd like to see the player count increase on the Vita, seeing that its the successor to the PSP, I'm still waiting to see a game push a 32 player count online (basically; a PSP did it, so why cant the Vita do it premise), the power of dedicated servers for handheld may push home console quality gaming on the Vita even further...

The power to innovate, is in Sonys court when it comes to handheld gaming this time around and their doing a great job with what their doing now, and it only gets better.

Riderz13372913d ago

I think 6v6 would be the sweet spot for multiplayer games on the Vita. It works for Call of Duty titles and it would be awesome on a handheld multiplayer

Veneno2913d ago

This gam3 needed 8v8 in order to be fun b3cause with lower player counts like 4v4 if one player leav3s it cripples the team and makes the experience lame.

But I just read the IGN preview and it says theres a free for all mode which might be good as if one player out of 8 leaves it won't be that big a deal.

Outside_ofthe_Box2913d ago

WOW @ those graphics. Guerrilla is always setting the bench mark.

Riderz13372913d ago

Man if GG can pull this off on the Vita...Oh my god the PS4 with Killzone 4...I'm going to have a heart attack.

Kingthrash3602913d ago (Edited 2913d ago )

This is what I'm talking about. People complain about the quality of the vitas games
( baffling-ly IMO) but I constantly kept preaching that the vita was in its first year and devs haven't got their hands wet with the kits yet. Here we are in its 2nd year and we have this as proof. The game is clearly the best looking handheld games EVER. Not to say the vita didn't already do this with many others ( I don't feel like listing the others ... Too many). I doubt ill see any vita haters commenting on this. September release looks like Pokemon will have a run for its money come Christmas....( not really tho IMO killzone is batter than Pokemon but lets be real, a lot more 3ds's sold so a lot more pokemon's will sell.) killzone will be A system seller that's for sure.
I do see some dick who's disagreeing with everyone.... Speechless hater can only click disagree after seeing that trailer.

chazjamie2913d ago
