Killzone 2 Director: PlayStation Home Support Is "Likely"
As time goes on, you will see more and more games that have a PlayStation Home presence. Of course, PlayStation 3 exclusives will top the list, and Killzone 2 is no exception; Sony has already revealed the KZ2 themes, images and extra content that will arrive for their expansive online social community.
But according to a recent PlayStationOnly interview with Guerilla, the support for Home is only just beginning. The big question everyone has is whether or not the game will fully support Home; in other words, if users milling about in their apartments can get together and launch a multiplayer match without ever leaving the Home space. So far, this has yet to be confirmed, but the interview showed that Development Director Arjan Brussee said the possibility is "likely." He wouldn't give a specific time frame, but the team may be working on it already. We're guessing that if the Home support does arrive, it'll come in the form of an update some time later this summer (but don't quote us on that). Although Home is still in the early stages, it's important to have blockbusters linked with the ever-expanding online service, because it will represent a major boost for Home. Being able to kick off KZ2 matches immediately after purchasing new threads for your avatar in Home makes the overall PS3 community experience seamless. Isn't that what Home was going for in the first place?
We'll let you know if Guerilla ever officially announces full support for PlayStation Home, but in the meantime, just be happy with what you have. Killzone 2 is scheduled to hit store shelves next week, and that should be enough for now, right?
