You can bet we're gonna be all over any Killzone 3 rumors, just because we maintain that Killzone 2 is the best FPS of the generation thus far.
Previously, it was reported in the Official PlayStation Magazine that the third installment was among the "Secret Games of 2010," which of course is nothing more than speculation but still managed to prompt plenty of debate. Now, according to Connected Consoles citing a video interview on a Dutch TV Show, it seems the game really might launch late next year, although 2011 seems more realistic. Guerilla Studios' Jan-Bart Van Beek said:
"Right now, Killzone 3 for a release in 2011, is being developed. Who knows, maybe we'll see the game even as early as 2010."
After the tremendous success of KZ2, it seems almost inevitable that we'd see another title and you can bet it will be downright huge. Could it be the first major holiday 2010 title? It all depends on Guerilla, of course, and we're willing to bet Sony may have some input on the matter; release dates have become a science in the industry lately, as a game could hit a wall just because it launches alongside intense competition. But right now, we have no idea what might be here towards the end of next year, so we'd be happy to hear that KZ3 is set for a Q4 2010 launch.
One of the best FPSs I've ever played, and I'm not keen on FPSs at all
2 was great much better than 1. I played 1 after I got 2 and couldnt handle it lol. I really enjoyed 2 though thought it was great, Radec was a bar steward at the end though 🙂

I thought the first was great at its time (although I know many people will disagree with me). Story was OK like K2, but Riko was HILARIOUS in the first which kept me playing for so long, haha!
But I def. agree, K2 was much better. However, I hope the story this time around is much deeper..

What the deuce is a bar steward?
I'm guessing it's the English term for bar tender.
bar steward = bastard
Aaah, makes sense now.
This is my favorite FPS of this gen (it helps that is one of two that I've played)so I'm all for it.My only request to Guerrilla is to include some bright jungle or snow stages.
Yea it was great. My only gripe about it was the f bomb being dropped every other word. I hope Rico gets killed off. Blagh.
rico was a nuesence i agree. but if you were on thebattlefield it wouldnt be all butterflies and baloons. guerilla did an excellent job of putting you in the situation. im sure if you were at war youd care nothing about what comes out of your mouth. i know its just a video game, but KZ2 was top notch in originality, and realism.
and yes i said originality they did alot of things others are not. especially online.
Amongst the best visuals, and the worst voice overs. It's not that the voice overs were flat (well they kinda were), or even done unprofessionally. It's just that in the American version, they were clearly foreign voice talents trying to do American personas and colloquial dialects, and ended up sounding forced and exaggerated, and almost like mocking caricatures. So, I really hope they fix that.
And I don't want a rushed sequel, so I really hope they don't release it in 2010, and I hope they take their time. KZ2 had all the ingredients of a AAA title, if not a perfect one, so it is a pity that it should lose some points to some less then stellar voice acting, or story elements when these are the easiest things to improve.
"listening to this makes me wanna break something"
wait wait wait…..
your playing a game, that is all about killing thousands of soldiers in horrific ways…and your peeved about their language?
i think its great when games are like that, they use it realistically, in situations where in real life, you wouldnt hesitate to say "ahh f**k"
My point is that voice-acting sounded fake, not realistic, even when they were dropping the F-bomb (like "what took you so long? Did stop home and have some lunch?"). But, it was pretty funny to hear a Helghan soldier cry, "aah f*ck!" when a grenade was thrown in. And it is worth mentioning the voice acting for Visari and Radec was excellent, probably because they weren't trying to imitate American speech with them.
And, I can understand someone being sensitive about the foul language. You can play the game on the private, but unless you turn down the volume, or wear headphones, kids might hear the foul language.
"kids might hear the foul language"… And what happens then? They turn into cabbage?
Guerilla could take a lesson from Naughty Dog in regards to dialog, and voice acting in the Uncharted series.
BRING IT YAR
haha yes i can not wait!
BRING IT ON!
Would make sense. I assume much of the long wait for KZ2 was due to them working on the engine. KZ3 is welcome.
Yeah, since the graphics dont seem like they can get much better, thats probably the big hurdle thats out of the way. Kinda like Uncharted 2, which was basically Uncharted with a smoother graphics engine, improved gameplay tweaks, and much better mechanics and design. and the whole package turned out that much better than 1.
Guerilla just need to make some all around improvements and KZ3 can be a big leap over KZ2.
this is the only FPS I will buy.
Well, this and Resistance 3 🙂
I'm just waiting to read some comments to see what people on here really ARE.
i think he means, alot of people here dont like fps. but when a game like KZ2 came out everyone jumped on board. for MW2 people hated. now we'll probably see people jump back on board!
i dot know for sure but thats my guess and i was gonna say something along the same lines!
Sorry, it's still a weird comment that makes no sense.
I've played both COD and Killzone2
The differences are huge
Killzone 2 = great campaign + characters
COD = online
Killzone 2 = No real life events (propaganda bullshit)
COD = WWII bullshit
Killzone2: Shooting that's fun
COD = 2 hit kills…
Many of the reasons why I like KZ2 more than most FPSs
bigrailer you're absolutely right! Yeah and I was waiting to see if their just PS3 fanboys who hate multiplats.
Alienage am disappointed, I thought you get everything fast!
Scarecrow please! I didn't like MW1 just for the online, the characters are more interesting, Gaz,Price, Nikolai, Griggs, Vasquez, I could go on and on. Serv and them are also cool but MW has more life. I just love relating to what's real, I never saw a Helghast on my street.
I'm not going to bash K2, I enjoyed it a lot, the online was fantastic, I played it to the general ranking. I was just waiting to see if the same MW2 haters will jump on this article and say, "Hell yeah, we want K3" and won't whine about it being the same fps as MW2 is all!

not to reign on the parade. i love KZ2 more than cod b ut i also enjoy me some cod. for starters, u pointed out that KZ2 has a great campaign which is true, but MW cinematics and different types of play like being in the plane at night bombing the town was great. as far as characters go, there is much more to like about KZ2.
second you said that cod is all about ww2, when you failed to metion MW. yes KZ2 didnt focus on real life events which gave them a huge advantage but MW isnt based on events either.
and as far as the shooting goes both are great. i prefer the realistic style of KZ2. but ill only play MW on hard core mode. it doesnt take 10 shots to kill someone in real life on most occasions. but it also makes it extremely hard to actually be in a fire fight if you die in 2 hits. whcih one do i prefer? well i hate shooting someone in the back and have them turn around and still be able to kill me! on the flip side, it sucks when you have no chance to fight for your life.
i will say this, im a KZ2 fan over MW. i love KZ2 everything about it was great. but i also like MW. its fun and the online keeps bringing people back. but when you compared the two you didnt compare all the facts.
i think KZ u favor maybe cus its exclusive. i think there are alot of sony loyalists which is what this site is about really. but when you bring two of the highest rated fps in one conversation its absolutley rediculous to praise one, but give a rats ass about the other. both games are great and if you hate fps, then you should probably hate KZ. i know that maybe KZ hits home more than the cod with others but its still an F*ng shooter, in my opinion it is what FPS are all about! so to say you hate fps then praise KZ is non sense, that makes you a hipocrit.
all i have to say now is im very excited about KZ3! even more so than MW2 which ill be picking up tonight! 😉

"I was just waiting to see if the same MW2 haters will jump on this article and say, "Hell yeah, we want K3" and won't whine about it being the same fps as MW2 is"
It's not the same type, KZ2 is just that much better. As such it even ropes in FPS 'haters'.
KZ is that much better yes, but really it is the same type. its a fps, just with a more realistic stance on character movement, and shooting. theres tons of things that we could compare but both have there strengths and only KZ strengths are being pointed out. im only saying this cause i love both.
no matter what those who say they hate fps games, are coming out to say they can not wait for KZ3. that contradicts its self in a whole. KZ in my opinion is what FPS are supposed to be. so you completely contradict yourself if you say , you hate FPS but jump on KZ.
just read what i wrote above and youll understand where im coming from.
btw i do not hate KZ it is in fact my fav. fps online and off. i just love the way it plays. bottom line its still a shooter. ill say it again to have MW and KZ2 in the same conversation as two of the highest rated FPS this gen, and say that you only like one is preference i get that. but to say you hate FPS and praise KZ2 makes you hipocritical.
but i will say im all for the praise, cus KZ3 should be epic!

Worldends, its funny how you say KZ2 is much better and I hardly see you play it. You have like 16% trophies, that means you beat the game and never went back to it, as I beat it and ended up with 21% trophies and continued online to fetch about 27% trophies and I'm not here supporting it to the death, your PS3 loyalty is something else world,sigh.
I'll be very surprised that if someone is into FPSs and hates COD (any). One can have a preference. Mine is KZ2 and I am eagerly waiting for the next installment.
thats my point. if someone likes KZ over COD (any) thats one thing, thats understandable. people do have preferences. but whats retarded is when someone says they hate FPS as a whole then praise the hell out of KZ. i know KZ deserves that praise, but it makes those people who hate on the FPS genre, look like douche bags, because not only do they contradict themselves, but they instantly become a hipocrit.
well none the less KZ2 is awesome even if you only play through once. but to sit here and praise it the way alot of people do but hate the fps genre is not right! im with you there.
its awesome that so many people like KZ over other FPS, but its amazing to me how many people contstantly bash FPS on this site, but once news of KZ3 and it being sony exclusive, it becomes instantly a "i cant wait for this" type of game.

No one ever mentioned PS3 loyalty, and I can tell which games are better in one playthrough and a few hours online because I'm just that good. Plus I don't go in for trophies, any and all of mine are by accident. Right now I have too many games to spend time on that one but I'm very happy to have it in my collection for when I'm in the mood.
And bigrailer, for the record I've never said I hated FPS, are there too many of them? yes. Are most the same rigamarole? Yes. But you if you stick with the best then it's still an enjoyable experience. I used the word "haters" in direct response to www. And again, nobody is saying they are all for KZ2 or 3 because it is Sony exclusive, there is no console war anywhere in this debate.

Gotta agree with you bigrailer19, what I noticed is that most people here love RPG's and bash fps which I see nothing wrong with if thats your preference.
When I see an article about MW2 most say how they hate fps but when a game like Resistance or Killzone comes up, everybody gets excited.
bigrailer I'm glad you get what am saying.
iGraves1 am happy you've seen that too.
Worldends I hear you, but you know action speaks louder than words, we just don't talk the talk, we walk the walk.
i wasnt singling any one out lol. i dont know where you though i was talking about you. maybe its that ego "and I can tell which games are better in one playthrough and a few hours online because I'm just that good." but thats beside the point.
and your right there is no console debate but will you argue with me that when an article about MW2 comes out and instantly FPS suck. but then today heres a glimpse at KZ3 and all im saying is its funny how things change. thats weird its still a FPS though. same goes with resistance as well. all these games entioned are great and yes you may like on more than the other but were not talking about that. what im trying to point out is when KZ news comes about its praise, any other time FPS suck, thats my point. to me it seems a little like sony loyalty, not just about how good the game(s) is. which is fine, sony is the top of the line in the industry, and im a loyalist. but i also know a good game is when i play it, and wont hate on the genre because it hasnt changed much game after game!
i dont care what games, or genre people like, everyone has a preference. im just curious and find it funny how KZ is awesome but First person shooters suck!
iGraves1- yea thats my point exactly as well as www-.

I think some of the MW2 bashing will likely die down since it looks like it's going to be the most critical acclaim game of this Gen.I'll probably break down and buy it eventually since I'm attracted to highly praised games.
im i weird to H8 CoD4 but b in luv w/ MW2
ill buy KZ3 anyday, man i can't w8
LOL IM SAD I HAVE NO LOYALTY
PS3 is best & thats y i play, i have just a little more liking towards all SONY products, but no loyalty cuz i want the best not fav brand
THOUGHT I HAVE LOTS OF H8 FOR M$ & EVERYTHING THEY TOUCH including SONY laptops but i lik da ZUNE
Wow this response thread is getting long, anyhow if you know me I love a good debate and you all make fine points, I suppose to boil it all down I just don't think it is as strange that people who are against FPS after FPS after FPS come out in favor of R3 or KZ3 because those are the people who reward quality over quantity.
This is in direct opposition to reskins that barely if at all improve in graphics, controls, gameplay, etc.
These particular people just want something that takes their system of choice to the max and improves upon any former iterations in a very real sense instead of amping up politics and debates on terrorism in order to get sales. There are plenty of people who aren't into RPGs but just play Final Fantasy, see what I'm getting at? Anywho, yeah if a person can't tell a superior game (not by opinion but on content and in technical aspects)in one play-through then said person might be in the wrong hobby.

The world "exception" doesn't exist in some people's vocabulary
By the way, some of us here don't even like MAG.
im hearing you for sure. if you like one game over another thats all good. thats why devs make games to hopefully improve over the next installment, and make a great experience over the competitors, and mainly just make a great game. the problem i see is too many people around here (not including you) bash any news of a FPS. but if it involves KZ its ok somehow KZ is exempt of being a FPS.
and i dont know anyone personally who doesnt like rpg's but plays final fantasy, but i guess its a possibiity. but again that still contradicts what that person preaches. thats my only point im trying to make. why bash the genre then praise a game in that genre. i guess thats my question to be answered.
if you have an exception in a game then you shouldnt complain about the genre. if you like one game more than another (KZ2 over COD) thatsa fine as ive been saying. but when a MW2 article comes out and someone says im so tired of FPS they should be banned, and quit being made, they are not good, and so on and so forth. then turn around and say KZ is awesome, what sense does that make? is it not a FPS, is it not in that category despite how good it is! the whole thing is contradicting, its hipocritical, and it shows favoritism.
what this shows is that one game can make a difference. and one game can make a genre. KZ apparently is the standard around here, and anything else falls short, which is pretty shallow but true it seems. if KZ is great then the FPS genre is great. if one game can make you look at the genre differently then its done its job! im excited that KZ has this affect.
im already getting farther and farther away from my original point ugh!
