Four-Player Co-Op Campaign Confirmed For Killzone 2?

Earlier, we learned that Guerilla would release a patch soon after Killzone 2 hit store shelves, and it wouldn't be your typical, run-of-the-mill stability patch. It would bring co-op campaign gameplay with it (apparently, the game doesn't ship with this feature), and that was great news for all. But we kept seeing the same question: is it two-player or four-player?

Well, it seems that question has just been answered, provided the information is accurate. As PSU points out, PlayStation World UK editor Ian Dean just recently did a hands-on preview of the hotly anticipated shooter, and he essentially confirmed four-player co-op: "And then theres the four-player co-op campaign to look forward to. Now that really could be something special," said Dean in the preview. Of course, we've seen incorrect details in previews before - remember the June 2008 typo in a recent Mirror's Edge preview? - but considering this was a hands-on piece, we're assuming Dean knows what he's talking about. Killzone 2 is slated for a February 2009 release, and eager beavers can get their hands on it a little earlier with the multiplayer beta test set for later this year. We're still waiting for more news on that, by the way.

Anyway, until Sony or Guerilla con confirm this four-player co-op mode, we'll just call it a probable rumor for now. We'd also like to know exactly when that patch will drop after the game releases; it may only be a matter of days. But if that's the case, why not just include it on the disc...? We have questions, and they will be answered in time. Killzone 2 = first huge blockbuster of 2009!

this whole, will release a patch on the same day dosnt quite make sense, the only answere i can think of is if theyve filled the blu ray, and say dont wanna make it dual layer, and theyve filled the 25gb so the extra few hundred mb's will need to be downloaded. but this seems unlikly to me... any other guess's to why this is anyone\??

well cavan, if i remember right, i think guerrila already essentially, they're already basically done with the game and it's just polishing and such now, so they probably don't want to go back and change it all up or something? i unno really..

Ok to be honest i dont give a d*mn about 4 player co-op becoz i dont have 4 controllers. And then again i wish it did have 4 player co-op as long as it was set up like halo Jizmack(1,2,3) now i would buy this game for that feature alone.

Not to sound Pessimistic but this game better live up tho the hype.Every time I look around I see see a new feature being slated to add on, and this is making me itch to play it.Im a CoD4 fanatic and am looking at this to be a great shooter just like CoD4.Im also looking foward to M.A.G cause if its done right(Which I know Zipper will put full effort into) It will mabey change the way we have Multiplayer BatlleGrounds

im sure this game is going to be great,i've no doubt.between this ,R2 and COD:WAW i think im set for the year on shooters.
you can tell wen somethings goin to be good when sony give it attention,hence why R2 will live up,this will live up.LBP will live up,and why haze didnt(if sony dont show it off,it wont be good)also this is why i think infamous will rock,they say it is goin to get a serious money for an ad campaign and the like.

I really hope its 4 player co op and not 2. It could end up being like R2 co op, where you have a tank and such. I wonder how long the download would be tho, especially with my slow internet connection?

I hope this has 2 player split screen death match or something as well. I hired Unreal Tournament 3 the other day only to find it didn't have split-screen. A game that's perfect for it. What's up with that? Not everyone wants to have to buy another ps3 to play 2 player.

im not saying split screen is a bad idea, its just that in this day and age of gaming against others online, some developers might see it as not needed.

I never liked the idea of split screen to be honest though.

Heres some news I came across for today :D

Afrika was released in japan, (I have no idea when) and managed to claw it's way up the the number 2 spot on the japanese sales charts! It was runner up to a DS title; "Rythym Tengoku Gold. Who woulda thought a animal photography based game would sell 38,000 copies in japan alone?

I think it looks like a pretty game. Saw some vids on youtube... Not sure if i'd buy it though...

Editorial : Why did Sony and Microsoft switch roles in this generation's of consoles.

Am I the only one that sees the shift in the 7th generation of consoles. Last year Sony PS2 started a head start by 1 year and went on to become the most successful console of all time. While the Microsoft XBOX was just...... a disappointment. Well now in this generation the tables have turned. XBOX 360 had a year head start and is successful *at least it was*. And now the Sony PS3 had a rough beginning. The PS2 had the software and many exclusives while XBOX had the hardware. The XBOX 360 has the software and exclusives *even though Microsoft paid for many games* while the PS3 has the hardware *even though they are now getting the software*.

Some news: Microsoft rep "Can't say" whether or not they'll beat Nintendo says Don Mattrick says, "Im not at a point where I can say we'll beat Nintendo". He later gives Sony a low blow by adding "We will sell more consoles this generation than Sony". Don Mattrick, I hope to see you eat your words some day.....

he says this but its much too early to tell, from the looks of it, there arent too many great games hitting that system that arent hitting the ps3.

Gears is fine and will be a lot of fun but it needs something more than just one game
