Killzone 2 Only Using 60% of PlayStation 3 SPU's Overall Power?

100°
299w ago - Speaking in IGN's latest Play Beyond podcast, Jeff Haynes revealed that even during the heaviest loads, Killzone 2 utilizes roughly only 60 per cent of the PlayStation 3 SPU's.

"It's incredible to see huge levels and see the deferred rendering and note that on all the SPU's, even on the heaviest load were coming up to about 60%," Haynes said.

"They weren't coming close to maxing out. They had about 40% of space before they started tripping or saw slow down on some of the processes."

Furthermore, Haynes noted that the preview codes recently distributed to various media outlets were of an alpha build of the title, and have since been polished up. Visiting Guerilla Games in Amsterdam, Haynes was shown an updated version of the game, mid to late beta, noting that elements such as lighting, cut scenes, glitches, load times, have all been optimized.

Killzone 2 is due out exclusively on PlayStation 3 on February 27, 2009.

301w ago - With the Killzone 2 Beta coming to a close this Sunday, we've got one more video up our sleeves to show you, this time taking a look at the many weapons available in the game.

Keep in mind, Guerrilla Games has yet to reveal all the weapons that will be available in the final game, so expect a few more surprises over the next few months.

The video below features guns from the beta, showcasing such weapons as the ISA M4 Revolver, ISA M82-G Assault Rifle, and ISA M13 Semi-automatic Combat Shotgun. Also included in the footage are some scene of environmental destructibility, displaying crumbling concrete columns and more. However the video is not very well synced with the audio.
