Killzone 3 Footage and Interview

The interview is conducted by Jeff Rubenstein – Social Media Manager at Sony with Guerrilla Games‘ Dutch Schenior Produscher Steven Ter Heide and if you squint at the background you can see Killzone 3 running on one of the snow levels, don’t worry the guy in the hat gets out the way pretty quickly! It appears to be a looped video capture rather than someone actually playing through a demo.

In the video you can see it looks familiar to Killzone 2 whilst still showing some new features such as melee kills, turret guns and snow. The melee kills look nice but also look as though they would create problems in a similar way to the recent Aliens Vs Predator in that you’re a sitting duck whilst brutally killing your target. Still it’s looking good and nice to hear that Guerilla are listening to the community. Killzone 3 is due out in 2011.

Gran Turismo 5 pitstopped at 90% because of 3D and PS Move support

I bet you’re all very curious as to why the development of Gran Turismo 5 has been stalled at 90%. Well, we just might have the answer now as MCV reports that it’s actually because of the 3D and PlayStation Move support. Suddenly the delay isn’t so bad now, is it?

MCV UK said that according to their source, the 3D and PlayStation Move support’s implementation definitely set back what otherwise would have been an already-complete game.

For their part, Sony responded to this report by giving out an official statement, saying, “We will be announcing further details of Gran Turismo 5 in June in Los Angeles during the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Until that time we cannot comment on rumour or speculation.”

Sony confirms Premium PSN service

psnetwork

Yes folks, it’s coming! Sony Computer Entertainment Europe president Andrew House has confirmed their plans to introduce the often-rumored PSN pay-to-play service in a recent fan in question & answer post. According to House:

“I can assure you that the current PSN as you know it will remain a free service. It is something that our competitors don’t offer and something that shows our loyalty to the PlayStation Community. However, Kaz Hirai stated a few months ago that we were looking at a premium service to sit alongside the current free service and that objective has not changed. You’ll learn more about it very soon.”

And by “soon” he might mean as early as next month at E3. Stay tuned.
