Killzone 3 is only about 6 weeks away but you know what? That's too long of a wait.

The latest trailer from the Consumer Electronics Show has been making waves recently, and you can see it below. We've seen plenty of gameplay over the past year but this is the first serious look at the plot, which features an epic clash between the Helghast and the ISA. You can bet that unlike most FPSs, the story will be a focal point, and that alone is worth applauding. Check it out:

Not bad, right? Guerrilla has talked a lot about the evolving plot and characters, and how they wanted to put the plot front-and-center. Of course, the gameplay should be top-notch, as evidenced by those aforementioned vids and the awesome beta test, but to have such a compelling single-player campaign in a shooter…? Wow, do they still have those? Shooters with, like…writing?

I was waiting for this trailer to be posted.

One of the best trailers I have ever seen.

I had no idea an FPS could have such an epic story or feel to it!!! And it doesn't even feel like it's trying too hard either. It's just… there!!

Nice to know that some companies out there still appreciate the single player campaign lovers. CoD and Activision clearly don't care for story, at least not to the same degree as Sony studios. Had no care for the characters or story in Black Ops. CoD is clearly multiplayer only, and it sells. Can't wait for the day the servers shut down, 8 million Call of Duty games selling for 20c each on eBay.

Heavy Rain was the last game that sucked me into the story, incredibly deep. Here's hoping Killzone 3 can do the same. If this trailer is any indication, I say it will… BIG time!!!

This is the second time I watched this vid since last night, and I'm still getting extra goosebumps over top of my normal KZ goosebumps.

I started watching it, got goosebumps and then I panicked, just remember my promise to never look at trailers for games I'm going to buy no matter what. I watched so many videos of Uncharted2 that by the time I got to play the game I knew almost all the cut scenes 🙁 it spoiled the experience for me…
But anyways, the little bit I saw was fantastic! Can't wait for it 🙂

Speaking of attachments, the "5Below" stores were selling "Move" compatible attachments made by 1Concepts for $5 for the holidays.

But now they're having a giant clearance sale on them and they're going for only $2 each right now.
But you've gotta hurry cause they're going fast.

Move baseball bat (black)
Move Golf club (black)
Move Tennis Racket (black)

Yup, KZ3 will be a day 1 buy for me, no doubt about it.
Just got back from a 3-week vacay (stayed home), and was able to finish AC:Brotherhood with all the single-player trophies. =)
I'm on Enslaved right now. Hoping to finish this before KZ3 comes out!

An FPS with an amazing story. Such a rare sight.

I actually used to respect FPSs back in the Goldeneye, Medal of Honor, Timesplitters days.

Great to see the emphasis on story.

This is one epic trailer for one epic game! Its shaping up quite nicely to stand as one of the better fps out their! The voice acting seemed incredibly better than in KZ2, sounded pretty damn good. There seems to be a lot of emphasis and enthusiasm on the story. Cant wait to see how it plays out. In the coming months this is definitely my most wanted!

HOLY UNGODLY AWESOME! I was expecting greatness, and I've avoided most of the other trailers, but this is beyond my expectations. If the entirety of the game can live up to THAT feeling… GoW3 has a definite contender for most epic game available on consoles.

If this really is the end of Killzone, at least we know that Guerilla aren't skipping out on anything. I don't like FPSes all that much, but this cannot be missed for the world. In fact, I think it just moved up to a D1P.
Peace.
