Killzone 3 confirmed; biased coverage to begin immediately

In an interview with GameTrailers recorded during GDC, Sony Computer Entertainment of America President and CEO Jack Tretton confirmed the existence of – or at least plans for – a third Killzone.

“I don’t know whether you’ll see announcements about it,” said Tretton to host Geoff Keighley, “but I can promise you a Killzone 3.”

The quasi-announcement couldn’t have been timed better, as it coincides neatly with GamesRadar’s annual Week of Hate. Like all other professional media outlets, GamesRadar is widely known among Killzone fans for completely hating the franchise, for no reason other than that it’s on the PS3 and isn’t Halo.

Our clear and unfair bias is evidenced not only by GamesRadar’s less-than-glowing preview coverage of Killzone 2, but also by the fact that we gave it our lowest possible review score: a shameful 9 out of 10. Further establishing our baseless hatred of developer Guerrilla's shooter was an earlier article, titled “The world’s most generic game character,” which included the Helghast mask and signaled our failure to understand just how iconic and original its design is.

Oh wait, no, that’s one of those guys from Jin-Roh. Here, let’s try again:

No, wait, that’s not right either…

Shit. Hang on, we’ll get this eventually…



Above: Ugh, FINALLY

In all seriousness, nothing else was mentioned or announced about the game, other than that it's on its way – something already-kind-of-confirmed by Killzone 2's cliffhanger ending. We – along with every other so-called "journalist" with an inexplicable grudge against the game and its fans – expect to see a lot more by the time E3 rolls around in June.

    First off I will never own an Xplode box. I know friends that have gone through 6. I have had my PS3 since they were still backwards compatible and it still works like new. Second, Killzone was fun game and graphics were amazing, period. Third, what game or any other type of entertainment does not get ideas or concepts from other sources of media? Is it me or does Master Chief's outfit look like a more fancy outfit of the person on the box art of the original doom? So come up with some better arguments. Halo sucks.

    Haha! I 'LOL'd and I worked on the game!
  • SoutheastSam - March 23, 2010 4:17 p.m.

    Multiplayer was the main draw for me. I realize how much I missed it after I traded it in to get MW2. :(

    I enjoyed Killzone 2 but agree with Mikel's points and score
  • TheShape108 - March 23, 2010 8:25 a.m.

    I own Killzone 1 and 2; 1 was...regrettable, I felt 2 was a pretty good game visually with great multiplayer. Although I did wanted to murder my teammates everytime they spoke. I am excited for the 3rd, but as a fan of the series if that was you guys being unfair, then just keep being unfair.

    Hey! I remember ALL of that ****ing bull**** about Killzone 2's review fiascoes... you know, it's funny. I'm a Sony fan, but I seriously did not like Killzone 2, at all! The environments were drab, the controls were both generic and annoying, the characters were laughable and the ending was offensively terrible. In short, I hated it :)
  • slapdatass - March 23, 2010 4:43 a.m.

    Heh, that was awesome.
  • GoldenMe - March 23, 2010 4:02 a.m.

    GamesRadar and Killzone and Fanboys. OH MY!

    Like everyone else I do hope they change it up a bit, maybe use the engine to make something really colorful and astounding like Uncharted 2. However I thought the cover component was amazing, so I'm also hoping the further refine it and all that good stuff. Man, this article brings me back to all those old disputes that spanned GR, such as the US vs UK forum battle photoshop royale

    Best. Article. Ever.
  • RabidCabbage - March 23, 2010 3:11 a.m.

    Great article, and I'm a Killzone fan who only has a PS3 and doesn't like Halo. Maybe you're winning the fanboys over.

    Killzone 1 was just bad. Number two was pretty but crap. I expect extremely pretty crap from no. 3 or I shall be very disappointed.
