Fantastic. I truly cannot wait for the green light. Now since we have half an hour, i’d like to know if we should post our questions here in the comment section of the PS Blog, or in the above chat box once it starts?

Too bad there is no strong ad campaign. KZ2 definitely deserved it, haven’t seen/heard anything and its due in 9 days.

+ Microshock on February 18th, 2009 at 11:34 am said:

I’ll be asking if you guys can let use choose any controls we want in game AND if don’t have to HOLD L2 to use cover or crouch, just tap it.

I am excited to see if a little rumor I heard is true: that if KZ2 does well enough Sony and GG will license the engine tech to other developers making PS3 exclusives—YAY for more awesome tech!

First off, much respect to Seb and the rest of the awesome, hard-working Guerrilla team!! Back at E3 2007, it was said that just one level in Killzone 2 took up around 2GB of data. Now that the game has gone gold and been put on Blu-ray how much space can you say the game uses up? Is it a 50GB blu-ray disc? Thanks!

For those posting about advertising, here in the UK, a teaser ad started airing on Monday, so I thought it would go everywhere else same time. Here it is if you want to have a look anyway!

P.S. (The date is the correct way around as well)

Can you change the sprint button from L3 to something else? Because I find that pressing L3 a lot destroys your left analog stick. The left stick is not smooth anymore.

Killzone 2 – 9 days.

Has there been any changes to online since the beta? Asides for changing the order of the engineers abilities?

Controls are not going to change, Seb said.

I only have one question and it’s not KillZone 2 related. Will there be another KillZone for the PSP?

What will set this game apart from every other first person shooter besides the amazing visuals and graphics?

What type of approach are you guys going to take towards the online part of the game?

Good deal, My first question will be ofcourse how was the transition from PS2 to PS3 been, and was it very demanding creating the deffered rendering during teh R&D stages of KZ2′s development. Oh and where are the adds.

where’s the advertising!?!

The Tech Hall article on “5 reasons why killzone wont be the next halo” (http://techhall.wordpress.com/2009/02/18/5-reasions-why-killzone-wont-be-the-next-halo/) pointed out an EXTREMELY valid point about the difference between Sony marketing and Microsoft marketing for AAA game titles. The days and weeks prior to Gears of War 2 or Halo 3 being released i could not go 15 minutes without seeing a commercial for the game, however Killzone 2 is merely DAYS away and i scarcely see ANY advertising. Sony has put millions(i have to imagine) into creating a fantastic game – So WHY in the world do they cheat the game’s advertising budget by NOT letting the word get out about just how GREAT the game is.

I believe that is the single most important reason why Sony and the Playstation 3 is still struggling in the marketplace rather than taking its proper place as the BEST console without question.

I cannot rationalize any valid reason why Sony would go 99% of the way toward making a true gaming phenomenon happen but undermine their efforts in the last moments when it counts the most.

Hey Seb, what differences will we see compared to the demo? graphically there is this rumor going around, that what people played at CES was better?

How big of a budget did this game really have?
