"No, Killzone won't be GDC at all," stated SCEA Manager, Ryan Bowling, in a conversation with IGN held earlier this afternoon. "The time for that game is coming and we'll have new information about it in the future, but not at GDC."
WERE A WASTE OF F'IN TIME ! i hate how vague the games industry is !
HAHA hey Simmo thought your "insider" information told you Killzone would be their and would blow us and Microsoft away? You must have some pretty bad insiders buddy. To everyone else besides Simmo, that comments not to you. This actually sucks I was interested on how it was coming along, and was actually pulling for a ps3 demo, so I could try it out.
what the... you are kidding, right?
Pretty sure killzone devs can't afford to release actual ingame footage or ingame pictures, they don't feel like deflating their own hype tactics.
Saying it's MIA suggests that it was planned to be there to begin with. I'm pretty sure it was not.
We'll see. It wouldn't be a surprise if they said it was going to be there.
Afterall, what would Guerilla gain by having a stupid demo come out this early unless they were looking for massive feedback in order to begin making fixes and patches to bugs and anomalies. If the game is going to be as good as PS3 owners expect it to be, then there would really be no need for a demo this early on the race with Halo3. Just let Halo roll out what they've got visually, features and gameplay wise, then strategically counter. If Halo puts out a demo, then condsider putting one out, but not before. Work on your title until the bloody end, until it shines gloriously through liquid crystal. We don't need a demo. Just the game.
No offense man, but marketing doesn't really work that way. Bungie keeps the community updated, releasing development videos etc. Guerilla already boosted up expectations far beyond with that CGI, so there is not strategy or whatsoever waiting quietly for Halo 3 to show what it can do. Last time we saw something about Killzone 2, it was 2005 and it was actually CGI. Besides, people compare Halo and Killzone because Killzone was supposed to be the "Halo Killer" Therefore, it didn't happen if we look at the scores. (I liked Killzone no matter what, I liked it's style alot - go Hakha, my kind of killa! :D). So right now, Halo has a bigger community, has a bigger name in my opinion and Killzone needs to expand. You do not expand unless you show something nice to people. Motorstorm for example, maybe it doesnt look as amazing as that CGI video in E3, but the game lived up to the hype thanks to its fun game mechanics (and of course the graphics are good). So there should be nothing they should be afraid of. It's been a long time, they should throw out something, not necessarily a demo but at least in game screens or videos.
two years after you first mention this game. This is retarded. Now with another delay like this, this game better be the best game ever released. On a scale from 1-10 this game better be an 11. 2 years and no new details or footage is unexcusable. Not even Nintendo is this foul and their known for such tactics. DAMN you better know what your doing.
I disagree because I think Killzone has been "MIA" in a sense, and of course the whole "CGI" bit has recieved alot of negative press.....at this point by now they should have at least some impressive "ingame" footage to show the world that Killzone will be at least close to what Sony claimed....it doesn't or probably won't ever look like the CGI...I think both consoles still have awhile before we see stuff like that, hell ingame of Crysis is very, very close but still not quite CGI quality IMO, but really Killzone doesn't have to be....they just need to show some "awesome ingame stuff"...just a short teaser and that will add alot of creditability to the hype of Killzone, but honestly it would be a "risk", because "if" it was mediocore at this stage, IMO it would lose alot of ground because of what was shown at E3. No disrespect but in fairness I think Killzone has to show alot more than Halo3 to even be considered a "competitor" in the sense that Halo is by far and away an "established" BIG time game, whether you love it or hate it thats the reality, Killzone hasn't had that kind of history yet. -Again, I think you have a point, I'm not saying you're wrong, but seriously nothing at GDC(March)? that's kind of weak....this is Sony, where's the fight?...."Get up or lay down."
Are you guys kidding? U think that after what Phill Harrison said about "some elements have already exceeded the trailer" & that " I won't show it untill it's ready"....what part of that you guys don't understand, meaning that sony knows they will get pounded if they don't show that cgi as real gameplay...cause of right now, that knowing their known as over promising underdelivering and that ur paying over 600 for a game machine, they willl make it happen, its sony not microsoft...sony = hardware...remember that.
Phil Harrison, Ken Kutaragi, Sony... they said many things, you have the right to believe but from what I have seen for now, I rather believe my own eyes, not some words.
your quote proves nothing. you just assume that when he says elements he means graphics. At least find good quote if you want to insult sony.
"your quote proves nothing. you just assume that when he says elements he means graphics." Are you are actually thinking he said that the GAMEPLAY is better than it was in a TRAILER???? 0_o The ONLY thing that came out of the original trailer was the amazing graphics...that is the only aspect anyone talked about. Making a comment that the game was better than the trailer absolutely, positively implies the graphics are better.
It would be nice to turn on my PS3 Once in while instead of dusting it once a week.............
We will see more soon. Good times. I can not wait to see this 1st hand.
Two years and counting... Is this going to be another Duke Nukem (In Development Land) Forever?
All, Just remember that this was insider info that triggered a wave of 'Halo-Killer' comments. I suggest that the multitude of Sony proponents just relax. Wait for either Guerilla or Sony to show the goods. As much as I love the idea of N4G as a gaming social site, the thought of posting anything and everything can wither the fine line between fact and fiction. My modo, 'Live and let Game'
I really want to see more of this game as i shall buy this game with MGS4 when i get a PS3. Come on, i want to see some sort of screenshot or maybe a short teaser video.
Not to be a jerk, but you KNOW you are going to buy a game before you've actually even SEEN or HEARD ANYTHING about it? Don't you think you should wait a little bit before being sure that the game is good? MGS4, sure, it has a stellar pedigree, with many sequels, but does Killzone really fall into that category yet?
I knew it, figures, they probably weren't able to get the game to look as good as they wanted, at least not without problems
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.....
I really wanted to see what Killzone 2 will look like, whether on or below par of expectations and hype. Looking back at the '05 trailer, I came to realize that those graphics are not impossible to render in real-time. The only real challenge is the fluid character animation.
I dont understand why everyone makes such a big f**king deal about the CGI demo for, there was no disclaimer at the bottom that said "THIS IS ACTUAL GAMEPLAY". They didn't come out and say that those graphics were how it looked, they put out a video clip to show what may be possible and to showcase a game in development. Everyone reads into this way too much. Thats like saying the video trailer for Halo 3 is what the game is most definitely going to look like. No matter what the games will be good, it all depends on the gameplay to make it great. Look back to some of the games in the past that didn't have amazing graphics but had amazing gameplay, those are games people remember. Halo 3 may be good, it might be a flop, all depends on how rushed the developers feel. I like Bungie they made a great game for the macintosh that was fun to play (Marathon), and I kinda wish they would bring that game back from the grave, but Halo is all they are concerned with right now. Their next project just might be a cross platform deal, then what will all of you Die hard 360 fans say? As for Killzone 2, I see this as a marketing strategy, you send rumor to the market to judge the amount of enthusiasm there is in the general public for your game, as well as judge the reaction of your competition. If your competition shows a sign of worry then prolong the exposure of your game and make them relax and think their game is still the king. Then after their release, release your game and squash them like the bug they are....or hope that you can.
Didn't have to sony made that disclaimer for them. Nice try tho and Halo 3 was always KNOWN to be a video, They came out and announced that to the public
Sony came out and said that it was actual gameplay then later on said it was a "Goal" they wold try to reach.
Um...actually I'm not, this is what I'm commenting on... "I dont understand why everyone makes such a big f**king deal about the CGI demo for, there was no disclaimer at the bottom that said "THIS IS ACTUAL GAMEPLAY"." My comment: "Didn't have to sony made that disclaimer for them." so where am I wrong when you just said that Sony said it was gameplay?
Its clearly in response to the original Poster (above you). It would make sense since i hit reply under his Post. If i was talking to you i would have put your name or possibly some arrows.
Oh...haha never thought of that, lol sorry.
Wow this kinda blows dont you think. I mean if and when games get that good it's going to be a good thing for all consoles no matter which one you have. I was also looking or well hoping to see something from this title but aparrently not yet it seems. Ok devestator your comment was wrong to some degree.. When everyone saw the killzone demo for the first time I..as well as lots of people yourself included were blown away by it I mean I was freaking out by how good it looked.. Everyone thought it was ingame footage because they said it was."SCEA's Vice President, Jack Tretton, was quoted as saying that the Killzone footage "is definitely real" and "is real gameplay", But latter people found out that it was not and got pissed because that footage looked nice. Ok what are all the die hard 360 fans going to do if bungie made a cross platform game?? They already have ONI?? remember that one?? Didnt really see any 360 fans go crazy...Everyone has to wait some more to find out if this title is worth it or not.. But I doubt they will have a release date that is close to halo 3 because that would be dumb marketing.. I mean think about it :every: game is going to be eclipsed by that game..because of the name HALO .. you might think its just a mediocre game but the vast legions of halo fans myself included will be waiting outside at midnight to buy the game and play.. So we will probably see KILLZONE 2 AFTER halo 3 when the hype of it is starting to go down and will usher in a new king of FPS.
Bungie will NEVER realease another title for any other system. Bungie is now own by Microsoft. Its like (what crap games does sony develope????) will end up on the Xbox.
are people still bickering about that CGI demonstration? So what, they didn't show actual gameplay, that was 2 YEARS ago, just get over it.
Its not hate....if we are going to discuss the topic, then its still a valid point to state the TRUTH that Sony initially said the CGI footage was in-game, then later said it was only a "target video", and now they are saying it looks as good as the CGI, but its been 2 yrs and they haven't shown squat....just talk. It's not like we're making this stuff up, hell just google the topic and you will find all kinds of articles questioning why Sony hasn't shown anything since the E3 Killzone CGI. -Its a valid point.
but obviously they havn`t got the in-game stuff close enough to the CGI. Maybe "the new E3" will be the place, to replace the old with the new. Either way, it`ll be fun to see how the game is shaping up.
That sucks ass!
