7w ago - Guerilla Cambridge Tech Director Matt Porter announced today that Killzone: Mercenary for PlayStation Vita is updated today!
To quote: Hi, everyone. We're very pleased to announce the launch of the second update for Killzone: Mercenary.
Firstly, we need to start off with the bad news. You'll see that the patch size is similar to that of the previous patch, and you'll need a spare 1190MB in order to download it.
When this new patch installs, the first patch will essentially be deleted, but you will need the extra space initially. This download is necessary in order to pave the way for future planned revisions to the game.
We're currently investigating solutions to reduce the overall size of the title and free up more of your valuable memory card space. We hope to be able to share more news on that work very soon. However, it seems unlikely to us that the overall size of the downloaded game, plus the patch, will ever be under 4GB.
The main focus for the second patch has been in targeting some of the connectivity issues that have been experienced over the last month. We're hoping that many of you who were previously unable to connect into the community will now be able to enjoy Killzone: Mercenary to its fullest.

243w ago - According to Co-founder and Managing Director of Guerrilla Games Hermen Hulst, Killzone 2 will not be receiving co-op as downloadable content.
To quote: "We looked at all the different flavors of co-op early on, but decided our first priority would have to be the single-player experience and the multiplayer," Hulst informed Game Informer.
"Rather than just tack on co-op, it would have to be integrated and done to a similar standard as the single and multiplayer."
"Having looked at it again now. I do not think we would want to add it as DLC," he said.
It appears that this is the final word on co-op for Killzone 2. For those looking forward to the new downloadable maps, Sony has confirmed the release date for April 30. The price point for the pack in currently unknown.
