Video: Impressive Killzone 2 Destructibility Footage for PS3

310w ago - Outside of its immaculate texture work, character models, and animations, Killzone 2 features an incredibly realistic destructibility engine allowing users to decimate specific objects and structures, watching them crumble into ruins.

In this latest line of footage, the player shows off some of the destructibility seen in the online multiplayer beta, shooting everything from pipes to hurling a grenade and razing the side of a support pillar.

Watch as chunks of concrete collapse to the ground and red-hot bullet holes penetrate the ground floor, spitting up debris. Killzone 2 is set for release exclusively on PlayStation 3 in February 2009

Do Game BETAs and Demos Kill both the Mood and Sales?

311w ago - The question is, do game companies sell less games because they offer a beta or a demo?

In an interview with GamePro magazine, Gears of War head-honcho Cliff Bleszinski said the following: "Once you play a BETA, you can check it off your list - you can say, yeah, I played it."

So, what Cliff seems to be saying is that they will not sell as many games to the public if they offer a beta/demo. Makes some sense and as the old saying goes, why buy the cow (or GOW in this case...) when the milk is free.

Of course BETAs can be looked at in a slightly different light than demos because a beta is supposed to help the devs sort out issues that they might not have found otherwise. Wide-scale testing also stresses servers and other support systems that routing in-house testing just can't do as effectively.

On the other hand, betas do provide quite a bit of insight into the final product. The gameplay will almost certainly be the same and graphics usually only increase slightly in the final versions. In essense, a BETA of a multi-player game is a free playing period that helps devs and gets gamers excited about a game.
