Video: X-Play Killzone 2 Review for the Sony PlayStation 3

50°
295w ago - Check out the awesome video below courtesy of G4TV's X-Play, who has given Killzone 2 a 5 out of 5 rating! To quote:

Some shooters try to hang a deep and meaningful story on their shootouts, and more often than not the plot twists end up either completely forgotten or way confusing. Not Killzone 2. This down the barrel look at life knows exactly why you're here. These Helghast have harried you for long enough.

It is time for them to be the home team. As ISA Sergeant Sevchenko, you will lead an invasion of the hazy Helghast home world, Helghan. After watching about ten seconds of an in-game news broadcast and an exciting dropship ride, the game grants you permission to fire, and off you go! Get the lead out! Why? Who cares!? They have red eyes! Do you need another reason?




The Killzone franchise has a checkered past. The first installment rode a wave of hype (not unlike the wave this game is riding) right into a wall of disappointment. Some hated the game's loose controls. Some hated the moronic AI. Some hated the glitches and slow-down that the game suffered from.

A good soundtrack and interesting ideas won't carry a game though, and the original Killzone not only didn't meet the unreasonable expectations...
 

Are Sony the Smart Ones with the PS3 in this Console Race?

200°
296w ago - There's no doubt that Sony has made mistakes this generation such as underestimating both Microsoft and Nintendo. Another mistake is relying too much on the brand image and not pumping out enough marketing.

However, if you have a look at the bigger picture, I think Sony are the smart ones in this console race, and I'm going to tell you why...

The Internet has been full of articles on why the PS3 is in trouble and how Sony have made mistakes since it launched. So I thought it would be right to give a fresh opinion on the matter.

There's no question that the PS3 has had a rocky start; it launched with very few quality games and it was argued by many that at its inception there was very little incentive to buy the PS3 over the older and cheaper Xbox 360.

The Xbox also had more titles and many multi-platform games that felt so much better than their PS3 counter-parts. As we approach the PS3's two-year anniversary in Europe however, the console is looking very different.

There are many quality titles under the PS3's belt including some impressive exclusives like LittleBigPlanet and Resistance 2. With Killzone 2 and hundreds of other titles just on the horizon, why does the media still bash the PS3?

Could it be 'revenue related'. The huge majority...
 

PS3 Price Drop Coming Soon Despite Sony Stating Otherwise?

100°
296w ago - We have all seen the reports of Sony stating that there will be not be a price drop for the PlayStation 3 anytime soon, but do you believe this to be true?

I have a very good feeling that Sony will be announcing a price drop for the PlayStation 3 soon in the upcoming months.

The reason why I say this is because many Web sites like Dell and Amazon have dropped the price of the system on their Web site as seen [Register or Login to view links].

As you can see, Dell has the PS3 priced at $339.99 and just last week Amazon had it listed for a little over $350.

I believe Sony might have a strategy behind this and is working with companies to determine how much they should drop the price of the PlayStation 3. Think about it, if Amazon has the PS3 listed at a little over $350 and there is not much of a sales spike, Sony would see that dropping the system $50 would not be effective.

Now if Dell has the system at $339.99 and the sales jump drastically, Sony would realize that dropping the system more than $50 would be an effective way to sell more consoles.

The reason Sony is saying they do not plan for a price drop anytime soon is because of business....
 

Sony UK Plans for 2.8 Million Dollar Killzone 2 Advertising Spree

50°
296w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has stacked a tidy lump sum of £2‭m (approx. $2.8m US) to help promote Killzone 2 in the region, [Register or Login to view links] reports.

Planning to swarm the unsuspecting island with television and movie theater ads, Sony UK is adamant in pushing its upcoming first-person shooter.

To quote: The dedication of £2‭m points to Sony's confidence in the Guerrilla Games developed title, which currently holds a high 95% Metacritic rating - if numbers mean anything to you.

Sony UK has also allotted an additional £2‭m in order to promote other high profile PS3 exclusives, including industry darling, but commercially snubbed, LittleBigPlanet.

SCEE marketing director Alan Duncan told Edge that recent reviews of Killzone 2 prove the title has "lived up" to expectations and "brings a new energy" to the competitive first-person genre.

Sony UK hopes strong ads for Killzone 2 can drive sales in the region, which will receive an exclusive bundle for the game's release. That's fantastic, but how about someone drive to the PSN server room and flip the switch to give us that demo already.
