Usually, bundles come with one or two games that you really don’t care for or like. Or just one game of your liking, maybe. But I have to say, this is one heck of a bundle, which will be on sale at BestBuy next Sunday.
According to Kotaku, this information is confirmed by multiple Best Buy employee’s. It’s an 80 gb Playstation 3 bundled with Killzone 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4, two of the best and biggest games on the Playstation 3. For such a bundle, you’d imagine that it’d be pricey, but no. This bundle is going for $400, the normal price of the PS3!
This is a great saving, and those without Playstation 3’s should take advantage of this bundle. It’s basically a console with two of it’s heaviest hitting games, for the price of the console alone. It’s one heck of a bundle, one heck of a saving.
Also, rumors of the Playstation 3 Slim are entering as the rumored picture is said to be shipped out July, this month. And ready to be sold by August. Perhaps this is why Best Buy is giving off such a great bundle, to get some space ready for the PS3 slim?
Killzone 2’s second group of Downloadable Map Packs is coming out next month, titled as the “Flash and Thunder” Map Pack. In which two of the maps are making a return from the dead, as revamped maps from the original Killzone.
The Killzone 2 Flash and Thunder Map Pack includes two maps from the first Killzone, completely remade to be played on the Playstation 3. The two maps are titled the Beach Head map and the Southern Hills map. Beach Head is a more closed quarters match while Southern Hills is more open ended.
The Killzone 2 map packs are pretty…. small I think. For a map pack that I’m used to getting, that is. But just two maps for one map pack, seems a bit lack luster.
As much as we might not like it, Killzone 2 will not be recieving a Co-Op DLC addon. Now it’s confirmed. Hermen Hulst, of Guerrilla Games, has now confirmed that there are no plans on bringing Co-Op to Killzone 2.
“We looked at all the different flavors of co-op early on, but decided our first priority would have to be the single-player experience and the multiplayer,” Hulst informed Game Informer. “Rather than just tack on co-op, it would have to be integrated and done to a similar standard as the single and multiplayer.
“Having looked at it again now. I do not think we would want to add it as DLC.”
Rather disappointing to say the least, but at least the Multiplayer already included is enjoyable enough.
With Killzone 2’s release date right around the corner, they’re making sure their marketing will do an effective job attracting the masses. There is an amazing commercial being made by them to show off Killzone 2’s technology, making the commercial completely ingame and no extra goodies added (such as prerendering or altered music).
Sony had this to say:
The idea for the commercial centered on telling the story of war on Helghan – up close and very personal and to use the game’s engine to show it. No voodoo, no heavy metal soundtrack: just the true representation of the in-game graphics. The team at Guerrilla embraced the concept and we were on a production rollercoaster ride that produced a piece that will be broadcasted across several networks starting tomorrow.
“Every single frame of this commercial was directly rendered on a PS3 without the need for additional tweaking or touching up. We’re very proud that our game engine technology has reached the point where we don’t have to resort to software pre-rendering,” said the Managing Director, Hermen Hulst. “In that regard it is a testament to our commitment to deliver on what we promise. What you see is what you get.”
In march, you’ll be able to download a playable version of the ingame ad to be shown on T.V. You’ll have complete control of the camera and you’ll be able to hear director commentary. Now this, sounds extremely cool. This game is going to obviously be a game of the year contendor, I don’t think any fanboy can doubt this?
