Could the SCEE first party developers be digging their own grave of Killzone 2 over-hype???

According to the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine, Guerrilla big-wigs are openly suggesting that the Xbox 360 couldn't handle a game like Killzone 2. Well, they would, wouldn't they?

Guerrilla's Managing Director Herman Hulst stated of being able to develop exclusively for the PlayStation 3: "It's a huge benefit. If you're developing a game on multiple platforms there are restrictions you always have to take into consideration.

"We are taking huge advantage of the architecture of PS3. I firmly believe that what we've shown we can get out of that machine would be difficult, if not impossible, to deliver on a competing machine."

On the same issue of developing Killzone 2 on multiple platforms, Killzone 2 Producer Steven Ter Heide made the following comments: "I would say [It's] impossible. We literally can't do this stuff on any machine other than the PS3."

Ter Heide went on to point out the advantages of Blu-ray on the PS3: "To make it simple, the Xbox 360 doesn't have SixAxis or Blu-ray. PlayStation 3 does. And for us that's a really big thing. The level you've just seen is 2GB. We really need Blu-ray to make the game. I don't know how you could fit it on Xbox 360 without taking some shortcuts."

In fairness to Guerrilla, other third party developers such as Epic have indirectly criticised the limitations of the Xbox 360's DVD format before but, when all's said and done, would you expect Guerrilla to say anything different? Guerrilla's comments are comparable to Bungie stating that no system other than the Xbox 360 could run Halo 3, a claim that's a little salacious at best.

All platforms have their benefits and none of them are toys. When I was a kid, that's the first thing my dad would say to me after buying me a console that cost hundreds of pounds.

"And remember," he'd say. "Be careful with it - it's not a toy."

post:no 612:   they're probly gonna stup future produtin because its so good that there dosen't need to be anymore development. It ahead of the 360 for sure... a 360 disc holds 6-7 gb's of data were as a ps3 disk holds 35 gb's of data.. so you tell me which can hold more  ,ps3 is the clear winner. With more space ps3 has more details.And what idiot's pay to go online..360!!!Ps3 is free online so shut the hel upp

and left for dead looks like crap i'm sorry but i seen some horrible graphics and this tops it.i think a ps2 could play this fine lol killzone is diff than ur first person shooters.to me its better than halo gears and even call of duty.it just gives u so much variety.I've played all these games so this is not just me saying whatever.i mean bulky slow hard to aim gears an same gun over and over on halo and call of duty is alright but killzone so diffrent story.AWESOME GAME HANDS DOWN. If u have not played it rent it or buy it wth u doing.you wont be dissapointed.

i also agree with the person below my other post lol, he knows what hes on about. 

 

i do think K2 would be able to go to 360 but somehow i doubt sony would give MS killzone away just like that, i rekon MS would need to give a game like gears of war or halo to them first lol =P
