Video: Helghast in HD - Killzone 2 for PlayStation 3 Ads Hit TV

50°
296w ago - VP of Product Marketing Scott Steinberg has announced that Killzone 2 ads are making their way to both TV and PSN later today as follows:

I am confident this game will inspire many of you who've been waiting for the right time to buy a PS3. It is a true testament to what "Only on PlayStation" means.

We're excited the promise of Killzone 2 has been realized and has exceeded expectations due to the tireless efforts and dedication of [Register or Login to view links]. I can't thank the development team enough for remaining true to the vision and producing one of the most impressive games in recent memory - on any platform. The pre-order numbers only reinforce your great enthusiasm for the game and we're pleased the game reviews show the same.





A group of us flew out to meet with the development team in late 2008 for a product meeting - we had an idea for a fresh way to promote the game. It was to bring the incredible detail in Killzone 2 to life by showcasing the game's technology - only made possible by the power of the PS3.

The idea for the commercial centered on telling the story of war on Helghan - up close and very personal and to use the game's engine to show it. No voodoo,...
 

Killzone 2 Helghast Forces to Invade Sony's PlayStation Home

300°
296w ago - PlayStation Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein shared the following "intel" via PS Blog today:

In the upcoming (just 12 days away!) Killzone 2, the ISA forces lead an assault of the planet Helghan. But that doesn't mean the Helghast are on the defensive. In fact, my intel tells me that the Helghast forces are en route to PlayStation Home today.

Fortunately, the Helghast won't be armed with STA-52 Light Assault Rifles (per se), but with demo codes for Killzone 2.

So if you don't already have access (by pre-ordering), just jump into Home tonight starting at about 6pm Pacific (9pm Eastern) and keep an eye out for the Helghast soldiers. When you find one, work up the courage and... just ask. If they've got any left, they'll direct message you with the demo key.

Then you can punch that code into the PlayStation Store (upper right corner), download the demo, and repay the Helghan emissary by... invading their planet. Oh well.

With Killzone 2 receiving lots of positive attention from the press, I figured now would be a good time to give you a taste of the bonus content which can be unlocked on Killzone.com through the game.

After you've uncovered a piece of Helghast intel in Killzone 2's single player campaign, you can connect to Killzone.com to claim a special reward.

These unlockable rewards come in various shapes and sizes - some are simply printable versions of the propaganda posters you see in-game, others contain details on the wildlife of the Maelstra Barrens or pages from a Helghast soldier's secret journal.

Video: Live Headshot Killzone 2 Demo for PlayStation 3

100°
297w ago - In the Killzone 2 demo for PS3 you can do some serious damage to the enemy, but only if you acquire the special gun.

And here's just how you do that - throw a grenade at the guy that's standing on the roof of the building inside the warehouse. It will make him run and get blown up off the building and allow you to pick up his gun.

Below is a video of it courtesy of nublet06 via YouTube.. and the caption reads as follows:

"Footage of me killing some dudes with head exploding headshots with the sta14 gun in the demo of Killzone 2. Get this gun by throwing a grenade at the guy thats standing on the roof of the buildin..."




 

Edge Magazine Gets Edged Out With Killzone 2 Review for PS3

100°
297w ago - Edge was always a magazine I like reading no matter what kind of reviews they dish out, their perspectives are so well written that it's pretty easy to negate everything else that they offer.

Did their Killzone 2 review push everyone against them, although I do not quite agree with the them, since they have given both Gears of War 2 and Halo 3 a 9 and 10 respectively.

The point is not about justification in an opinion but maintaining a minimum level of consistency and fairness with all their reviews which is a rather impossible task to achieve with the enormous amount of revenues flowing from one publication to another.





Videogame companies have made reviews a mandatory tool to push their own opinion to consumers, rather than providing an honest outlook for games, this field of argument is not restricted just for Edge, but for all major gaming publications who operate in the gaming industry.

It would be rather unnatural to assume that these big companies/publications have a stake in the game itself. Fanboyism makes this proposition even worse, in addition to the large big huge corporations, the pressure of being ignored completely by a particular community also hangs precariously over the heads of these...
