    As long as it's not Gears of War 3, meh

    Living and dying laughing and crying
    Once you have seen it you will never be the same
    Life in the fast lane is just how it seems
    Hard and it is heavy dirty and mean

    Re: News - Microsoft plan Killzone 2 beater for Xbox 360

    Crysis? Its beaten every game if they are on about graphical changes and it will be pretty impossible to make a better game on any console with the petty 7800 equivialnt in both ps3 and 360(its petty in comparison to pc just a FYI). I didnt like killzone 1 at all but maybe kz2 is alot better? I remember when sony were saying its a halo killer and then it got so badly reviewed.

    I wish they didnt say it would be impossible for kz2 to be on 360 because i highly doubt it, bluray my ass really as they just waste the extra 30gb of space. A film on bluray uses alot more than a hd-dvd vid and provides the same quality so it shows how uncompressed it is lol.

    kz2 is alot better and probably the most feature rich MP ever for an fps game and to boot, the most gorgous FPS game on a console(imo).

    kz1 was runnish though but number 2 does everything right minus the controls

    Killzone 2 developer, Guerrilla Games has already said that the limitations of the Xbox 360 would make its shooter practically impossible to develop for the Xbox 360
    That'd be dvd disc capacity rearing its ugly head again....

    what about the cpu cores? ps3 has more cpu power innit? maybe kz2 demands alot of cpu power for all those things to happen around you in the SP?

    If a dual core PC can run something like Supreme Commander where you can have 8000 units on a map all running AI routines and simulating trajetories etc, then a 6 logical cores X360 can cope with the CPU requirements of a FPS.

    It'll be one of two things:

    -DVD storage capacity
    -X360 requirement to run a game without installing to hard drive.

    What I'd really like to see is a battlefield style halo game Much like Halo MP at the moment, just slightly changed to have character classes, bigger maps etc

    I wouldn't say that, I'd say they can't get loading times to an acceptable level so get to 'cheat' by forcing an install of the game to the hard drive, something that they cannot mandate on the 360 due to differing setups

    DVD is faster than blu ray for reading and there wouldn't be anything stopping them releasing a multi disc game tbh......

    I agree with Kalniel, it isn't the power of the system (as it also has Supreme Commander on the console too don't forget) that is the issue for them.

    Mind you.....Halo 3 is 720p double buffered for smoothness..... and that game isn't exactly new, if they have processing issues it might just be they aren't used to the format

    but the graphics and sounds are not on par with kz2 though? Plus a quad core will run supreme commander more efficient

    Who gives a toss about this or that beaters? I just want good games on the systems. All this does is feed fanboyism. Bleh, it is all just so much rubbish!

    What's that got to do with CPU power? (And I'd argue they are anyway ) I'd also argue that Crysis looks better on my old dual core PC than KZ2 does
