MAN the PS3 is becoming too over rated. Playstation and SCEA you d=guys are violating my first ammenfment rights(Freedom of speech, press, and religion) Now I say just let the questions flow so that we at least get the gratitude of actually seeing our questions, instead of seeing the usual fanboy suck ups saying WOOT KILLZONE, or SEB WILL YOU MARRY ME without even knowing how he looks like.

@251

If that were true do you think that your post would still be up. Man just calm down. Jeff is only human and this the first time this has been done. So of course he wasn’t going to be able to get everyones question.

This is a learning experience for everyone so how about you stay tuned until next time for another live chat and see what happens then.

So we’ll only be aloud to use our custom songs online only but can’t earn to use them in single player after beating it once or on every difficulty.

Thanks for replying to my comment. I did read through the chat even before I posted my comment. What I meant was, I started reading the chat late, so I wanted to scroll through the chat before I tried to post a question, to verify that it hadn’t been asked yet. So, while the chat is still going on, if possible, try to see if you can make it fully viewable without being pulled back to the latest comment being posted.

    Ah, I think it\’s a limitation of the platform.

    Also, nice icon!

Will custom matches on this game be hosted by the player (like R6V2) or will they be hosted by dedicated servers (like R:FoM & R2)?

Also will there be a custom game browser like R:FoM?

I asked these in the chat, neither appeared : (

Hey Jeff, will you be making a clan and what would be the requirements for someone to join it?

wow this was great!! I never got my question through, but I really like this idea of asking questions to the developers.

Also I have a suggestion that would help people get their message through. Maybe if there was a top window that would only show the question and replied answer of the dev, then on the bottom window we could freely type our questions instantly, and Jeff could pick out the ones for him to answer.

I dont know.. that might not work, but for a first time event, this was really good!! I hope you guys mean to improve this idea though to get more peoples questions through, even if they arent answered I kinda want to see my question on the board.

Great job guys.

    Well in the background, we do see everything that\’s typed – problem is, *so* many questions are asked, it\’s impossible to read all of them in the time, let alone answer them all. We did the best we could – and that\’s pretty much where it nets out.

why doesnt sony push voice chat for psn? this is one of the reasons why XBL would of been better for kz2.

where are the commercials?? nobody except hardcore gamers know about this game.

sony should hire someone like me to do the marketing.


263

+ Enforcer_X on February 18th, 2009 at 4:18 pm said:

I thought the chat was good but maybe required more people to monitor questions coming in? I felt that most if not all the questions had been answered before I was really looking for some new Q&A’s

I mean I already knew there was no cover in online I knew the game modes.

Anyway it was the first time and I thought it went well and I look forward to more live chats to come!
Thanks Jeff and Seb!

Just finished reading the Q/A. It was pretty good. Pretty well done. A lot of good questions got asked and yeah, it really felt like it should have lasted longer from what I read. Still very hyped for the game…even though I won’t be able to get it on day one ;.;

Anywho, hope we can have more of these Q/As going for games like God of War III, Uncharted 2, White Knight Chronicles, etc.

    Yup, that\’s the plan! Maybe even another KZ one next week.

LOL @ 261
Yeah, you do marketing talking about how KZ would be better on XBL? You’re already fired!

PURE GENIUS!
YES HOME!
I would LOVE to see something like this in Home, although I was at work for this chat and was able to particpate from there and would not be able to if I needed my PS3.

But I like the Home idea for sure! a nice Home setting to ask questions and get responses that would be fun!
PSBlog needs a space in Home!

What? No more computer generated images of rifles that you try to pass off as real?

Disappointing.

Id say nice work on this chat session, hopefully itll be better next time you guys do one. I though it was pretty cool. It does kinda stink that not all the good question got answered, but hey theres always next time, or wait till we get the game and test it out ourselves.


269

+ RurouniSaiya-jin on February 18th, 2009 at 4:57 pm said:

Yay! Glad to hear there’ll be more of these and possibly another KZ2 one, especially since I missed this one.

Is their anyway to get it so that if you do this again you can just be on your ps3 instead of a computer.

I enjoyed it…didnt get any of my questions answered but like Jeff said when you have tons coming in its hard to read them all. Maybe next time they can get Jeff some help.

Thank you for this. I’m hoping for more chats like this! Maybe with the guys from Naughty Dog? Asside from Killzone 2, Uncharted 2 is the game I’m looking forward to the most!

Ugh missed this cuz I had to work. I still can’t believe how many features this multiplayer has. It’s just about every feature I liked about every FPS game I liked and then some new stuff just for kicks.

So where is our commercial? Surely you have something to show us here, considering parts of Europe and South America already have commercials…

Here, just take and copy this 1 minute trailer I put together. Obviously not “copy” but look at the pacing. Include your marketing requirements like all legal notices, SCE titles, etc. but give people actual GAME FOOTAGE and make it exciting :)

The God of War III trailer was absolutely brilliant. Obviously you cannot duplicate the build up in 15, 30, or 60 second spots but the way they implicated the action was gorgeous!

Here is the link to my 60 second “mini trailer”.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rREMY965SSs&fmt=18

I’ll come up to Foster City with marketing talent I’ve met over the past few years if your European marketing firm releases more artsy videos that completely alienate gamers interested in seeing THE GAMES.

+ HenryHSH on February 19th, 2009 at 1:54 am said:

I don’t know about “Cover it Live”, but you guys need to put a time limit on questions per-user. Say 1 message per-user every 5 minutes.

If they don’t have an option for that in the Writer Console, if not, then it’s going to be hell every time you have a live chat. Unless you use a different software. ;)

I REALLY like the idea of the live chat thing, but it would be EXTREMELY nice of you guys to have the live chat scheduled for a time that I’m NOT in school! lol

I was bummed out to find out that I’d be getting home a little after the live chat ended… :(

But, other than that, this chat seemed cool! It’s a GREAT thing seeing developers talk one on one… or thousands on one (lol) with their fans!

And yes, we need to do this again… I’m thinking a live chat with Naughty Dog would be SWEET!

Great idea to have this Q&A, but I think maybe more time alloted to this next time would make it a little better. Yes, I know time is money, but information is power.

Seriously great job, maybe next time I’ll be able to make it for the live session.
