225w ago - Guerrilla Games Producer Sebastian Downie has wished PS3 fans very happy holidays today on behalf of Guerrilla Games Studios via Sony's PlayStation Blog.

To quote: Between the release of Killzone 2, the Behind The Bullet demo, the three DLC map packs and the PlayStation Home content, this has been an extremely eventful year for all of us here at Guerrilla.

We wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to you, the fans, for supporting us throughout 2009 - by cheering us on, by playing our game, by giving us feedback and by sharing your passion.

Without your enthusiasm, there simply wouldn't be a Killzone 2. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas and an exciting New Year!

We hope you'll come visit us regularly at Killzone.com.
 

Tokyo Games Show 2009 - What Fans Can Expect from Sony

250°
239w ago - As a follow-up to the initial announcement on Sony's PS3 and PSP game lineup, today Examiner.com (linked above) outlines what fans can expect at Tokyo Games Show 2009.

For those unaware, the event is taking place from September 24th to the 27th, and the special keynote address is scheduled for the first day. To quote:

Gran Turismo 5
After being in development for years, it looks like Gran Turismo 5 may finally be coming out relatively soon. With a 2009 release date a possibility, you can expect Sony to give a huge blowout of game's features at the Tokyo Game Show, including the exciting head-tracking mode. Gran Turismo 5 is expected to be a top-seller for the PlayStation 3; so Sony should be giving the full spotlight to their exclusive first-party title.

PSP Go
Although it may be hard to imagine, the PSP is more popular in Japan than the PlayStation 3. With the launch of the PSP Go quickly closing in, Sony must make a strong last impression at the Tokyo Game Show. Although the software lineup will no doubt be strong (with Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker and Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep leading the way), Sony must convince prospective buyers that the new PSP model...
 

America's Army 3 Plagued with Server Issues, Disappointed Fans

100°
252w ago - America's Army 3 is supposed to be the best realistic Army simulation for gamers... and potentially a recruitment tool. Just a few days after it's launch the game was bombarded by fans.

Just when you thought there could not be any more bad news than the developers getting fired on the release date, server problems and fan complaints are flooding through America's Army forums.

To quote: A lot of fans cannot link their America's Army 2 account with the new one, so they are forced to create a brand new account and go through all the training again.

However the problem did not stop there. When players finish their training, there is no way to save their progress on the server. Players just have to keep doing the same boring training again and again, hoping the server will register their progress.

Server problems aside, there are more problems with the fans. The fans were promised amazing graphics built on the Unreal 3 engine but were disappointed when getting what is shown in the picture below.

There is already a online petition to change the texture, but we all know that online petitions means nothing to the developers... especially when the developers got fired already.

Why Left 4 Dead Fans Should Calm Down About Left 4 Dead 2

100°
254w ago - It's pretty clear that a lot of Left 4 Dead fans are very upset about Valve's surprise reveal during E3 2009 about Left 4 Dead 2.

The game's new official message boards are full of comments saying basically, "Valve's releasing a sequel too quickly for us; this should be a free content update for the original game."

To quote: As Valve's Doug Lombardi told us during our play time with a build of the game this past week, "This is something new for us." By "new" he meant that this time Valve is not waiting for years to release a commercial follow-up to one of their major games. (Half-Life 2: Episode 3, hello?)

Many fans are not happy because they feel the original game (still a top 10 best selling PC game in retail stores months after release) will be forgotten now with Left 4 Dead 2's announcement.

Again, Lombardi assured us at E3 that is not the case, promising that the first game will still be getting updates and new content (although exactly what they have planned is still a mystery). Lombardi also told Rock Paper Shotgun that any maps made for Left 4 Dead's SDK will work for Left 4 Dead 2.

Finally there's the fact that Valve has made purchasing Left 4 Dead pretty easy since its October...
