    Killzone coming to PSN later this month

    Read this straight from Game Informer just now. It won't be in HD, just a port to the PSN.




    [Update] Sony confirmed to Game Informer it will release Killzone on PlayStation Network. The game will cost $9.99 and release on January 24. This is a port of the original PlayStation 2 title.
    ------------------------------------------
    [Original Story] It seems the first Killzone title will soon be making its way to PlayStation 3. The Entertainment Software Ratings Board recently published a rating for the game for PS3, which typically signals its eventual release.

    It's unlikely this is a complete "remaster" of the original PlayStation 2 version, but instead simply a digital title of the original available through PlayStation Network. Sony began selling PlayStation 2 titles last October through its "Only on PSN" program.

    We reached out to SCEA for additional information and we'll update this post if we hear back.

    Thoughts on this?

    Sucks that it's not going to be in HD but at least they're putting it on PSN.

    I don't know if $9.99 for a direct port (if that is the way they end up going) is the smartest of moves, or is going to generate a lot of income - or introduce a lot of sales of the sequels when you can probably buy both in their physical format for pretty close to a similar price at some used game store.

    I would have probably introduced it for PS+ users for free, day one - and offer a sale on the digital versions of the sequels - but I don't work in Sony's marketing.

    The only saving grace for sales would probably be if it has a Platinum, so that the trophy hungry, or people who were on the fence might consider giving it a shot, while boosting their own trophy count in the process.

    I'd definitely get this if it's got some trophies, but I'll probably get it at some point either way so I can at least play the main three games.

    I'm still holding out hope for Killzone and Killzone Liberation in HD, though. Seems like a no-brainer, and yet...




    Current Playthrough Counts:
    Mass Effect: 25 || Mass Effect 2: 44
    Mass Effect 3: 15
    Add me for ME3 multiplayer shenanigans.
    First legit Mass Effect 3 100% on PS3T.


    SERBIA STRONG

    Thanks to Luckay for the ETGWG bar and avy, and Qurb for the sig!

    mmmm PlayStation 2 Classic the worst that could happen, now all devs will just trow the games direclty as PS2 classics instead on making them on HD with trophies. No buy here i already have my PS2 disc of Killzone, if it was in HD might be another history, thanks for nothing i guess

    The PS2 "classics" section on PS2 works about the same as PS1 classics. Which means no trophies introduced at all, let alone a plat.

    As big of a killzone fan that I am, I’m pretty excited to be able to play the game where it started. However I do wish it was in HD

    Don't let a review judge a game. For a game they made in response to Halo, it didn't do as well sales wise. But the game itself was fking fantastic.

    Guerrilla Games don't have time to make a HD remake of this game. They are busy with Killzone 4 for PS4.

    Hmmmm..... I LOVED Killzone2 and 3 and always was hoping they'd comeback with and HD remake of the first one, simply for the story line. Just porting it over seems quite lazy though and I've heard nothing about a Killzone 4 in the works so I guess it's just developers being lazy and trying to generate as much money from their fans as possible.... *cough* MW3 *cough*

    I agree with Kaoskauser on this one - I would also like to state that the majority of people that buy games for home systems could care less about trophies/achievements. It's a sad statement, but true one.

    I bought mine from amazon for 0,01£, with only 2£ for shipping.
