Killzone 2, which will already have been released, will feature in two talks. The first will describe the game's usage of the Cell's SPUs and the second session will look at Killzone 2's rendering.
All devs must learn from GG!
Humble pie served during break
should learn from Kojima.
Did you know GG learned from the guys making God Of War? which has me even more excited!! ;P
and they should teach other devs for monies :) (it's what i would do :P)
Kojima team should be reform like the western developers and create projects around a 2 - 3 year cycle. That way that have projects finished on alternating years, can you imagine the number of titles they can produce instead of 1 every few years.
God of War 3, Uncharted 2, and Killzone 2 at GDC. Yikes!
What will Microsoft do against that? oooh I know! Another 360 price cut!!...and a price cut to Xbox Live!
most likely Xbox Live will be free in six months. that's yesterday there are a few retailer had a huge sales on 13 months xbox lives.
when is GDC?
March 21st, I think.
GDC 2009 takes place: March 23-27
San Fransico, see you there!
SONY...... Does anyone in N4G have hugh man crush on NATHAN DRAKE as I do ? He manage to crack a laugh even though he is hangin from a train...How about hangin with kratos and nathan drake for a night at the bar ? WOW
They should teach Naughty Dog, Insomniac etc all their top secret tricks and how to implement them. Having 3-4 games that look as good or even better than KZ2 would be fantastic.
And because Insomniac's PS3 engine runs flawlessly I'm guessing they have helped GG more than GG has helped them.
It doesn't really work that way. All of Sony's first party developers and Insomniac know what they're doing. The PS3 can be programmed a lot of ways. It's all about the game you want to create.
I agree. Matter of fact, Resistance 2 and Uncharted have plenty of loading times. It just happens behind the screen so you might not notice it. Thats smart programing. This is one of many tricks Insominac uses. Developers should learn a thing or two from it.
This is great news for us "the gamers". This type of cooperation between developers will lead to better games for everyone. Game developers can no longer use excuses like "it's to hard" or "they should just scrap their hardware and start over". I'm looking at you Valve. Congrats to GG and ND for doing most of the hardwork. If other devs follow your lead, we will all be treated to many more true "Next Gen titles". It's good to be a gamer :)
I am so happy to see these developers showing the other devs what the PS3 is truly capable of. Maybe that age old excuse of 'it's too hard to develop for' can end.
Can contain spoilers. I have translated it from a swedish blogger who works on gamereactor. "Im trying to fall aslep, listening to dream theaters wait for sleep, but i cant. I close my eyes but remains awake. When i close my eyes i see helghan before me. The unfriendly planet where the war rages on. We got Killzone 2, the finished game a cuple of days ago. I started playing imidietly, and are on my way through Guerillas 410 milion kr (swedish crown) expensive giganto project fo my second time. Yes it is better than the time i played the superb earlier build. It is tighter now, looks better, runs smoother and it sounds better. Helghan is a nasty planet, a dirty planet, an evil place. But i love it, i want to live there, in a little dusty cement house with lots of guns and orange glowing eyes. I want to emigrate, i want to be a helghast. Or. No. Wrong. I want to kill helghast. I want to save mankind, save vekta, fight for peace, fight for freedom. I want to be a warhero. The guy who killed Radec and captured Emporor Visari. Da man. Killzone 2 are amazing. Im hooked, again. the preview version only contained Loose fragment of the story that are now told in all it´s glory. The soundmix was a little unbalanced in the beta code. All is now straighten out, and now the sound of the war on helghan sounds so sweet that i today almost started to cry (diffrent types of sounds i dont know how to translate them) my ears are in love. I close my eyes for just a second. And i see... Suljeva village Badlands. In the outer rims of the planet lies a huge desert landscape. The wind blows hard and brings with it redbrown sand. Everywhere lies broken veichles and helghans have built pathways and silos underground. I meet snipers dressed in cloax coats and insanely cool rifles. I meet elites, grunts and squad leaders. It gets though, fast. The level is more open than most in the game, me and rico are fired upon from all directions. Hard, really hard, and fun. Incredible fun. The review will be out first week in february. Now i will lay down and close my eyes." Sounds sweet :-)
Huh Secrets my ass BioWare's Mass Effect 2 is set to feature in a 60-minute lecture at 2009's Game Developers Conference which I'm looking forward to more than that ps3 game.
God Of War 3 at GDC will leave everybody speechless, nobody will give a damn about the other games, sorry pp.
The videos don't look any better than Call of Duty. I assume none of you played KZ2. So, why is GG suddenly the next Crytek or Epic Games?
Im not a pc fan so i cant comment on crysis. But i do own all consoles and can say that it is the greatest looking console game i ever played. Gears 2 is the only one that comes close.
Eyes. you need them. I have played COD4 and KZ2 MP beta. The MP beta had better graphics then COD4 singleplayer.
Why did you include Epic Games in there?
PPnoPP if your looking forward to them games you said then you clearly dont know when i awesome game hits you in the face either that or you need glasses
i dont care if killzone 2, God of war 3, uncharted 2 or halo 4 comes in 09 the only game that am looking forward is mass effect 2 i dont care in what system comes out, i ll be buying that babe day one, ufff cant wait.
Double post. Sorry.
