Killzone 2 Not Getting 3D Update After All



Sony has issued a statement saying that the idea that Killzone 2 [http://www.amazon.com/Killzone-2-Playstation-3/dp/B000FQBF1M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1278692533&sr=1-1] would be getting a 3D update was an 'erroneous inference'.

Over the weekend, it was reported [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/99675-Killzone-2-Getting-3D-Update] that Killzone 2, along with ,a href="http://www.amazon.com/WipEout-Online-Game-Code-Playstation-3/dp/B002N2YLDA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1278692587&sr=1-1">Wipeout HD, Gran Turismo 5 [http://www.amazon.com/Super-Stardust-Online-Game-Playstation-3/dp/B002GP6WAO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1278692607&sr=1-1] would be getting a 3D mode this summer. It appears, however, that that is not the case, and Sony has apologized for the misunderstanding.

"That last feature [in Qore] included interviews, footage from CES 2010, and a brief montage of SCEA titles intended as examples of what 3D gaming might encompass. It is hard to do justice to just how amazing 3D gaming looks in a 2D presentation-even in an HD product such as Qore."

"Unfortunately, our feature did not make it clear that the 2D game footage was included for demonstration purposes only. We apologize for the erroneous inference that 3D versions of LBP, Wipeout HD, Killzone 2, Gran Turismo 5 or Super Stardust HD are in production."

Good, I don't like 3D. After going to see "Clash of the Titans" at the cinema I found it like watching the TV with sun glasses on.

The film wasn't even that fucking 3D.

Ah, much better, but LittleBIGPlanet in 3D would have been Amazing.

Calumon: I wish I was in LittleBIGPlanet. :(

Oh well, I can't afford a graphics card and new moniter for 3D gaming, so this really doesn't affect me either way.

Plus I already wear glasses, so bleh. BLEH I SAY!

GOOD. That game looked fucking terrible. It was nothing but slight shades of gray, brown and red. Putting that in 3D would never have worked.

I traded in Killzone 2 (aka generic brown shooter #474582 B), which came with my PS3, for Little Big Planet. Best trade I ever did.

I really don't like 3D, hope it fails. It's all a ploy to get people to buy new TVs and to ramp up cinema prices even more.

i never play killzone D:.is good?
It really depends on you preferences. It doesn't have auto aim, is comparable to WW2 (IN SPAAAACE!), and the main characters are a bunch of unrepentant pricks working for a corrupt government using force to annex a company based nation from their rightful property.

Some people love it, like me, some people don't. And despite it being brown, it also has lots of other nice looking brown environments too!

I don't speak for everyone when I say I love it. Go out and rent it to make your own observations.

Well that's a pity. Now the 0.01% of the population that has a 3D-capable TV will miss out.
