First they make a sub-par AVP multiplayer game and now they stop supporting it all together? For shame Sega .. and not to long after DLC was released too. I still have yet to buy this game, I was really disappointed by the multi-player demo. I’ll probably still get it at some point, just used this time around.
I’ve just received a mail this AM regarding patches for the console versions of AVP and I regret to inform everyone that these have sadly been scrapped.
I had previously made a claim that these were coming and at the time, this was very much on the table. For the console community, I apologize, as I know there are many features and updates that you’d like to see. I’ll keep fighting internally for this to happen, but until I hear otherwise, there will not be a console patch for either Xbox or PS3.
Hopefully they get good response from the AVP players and change the decision to drop support for the console versions. Btw, what do you think of the AVP multiplayer?
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.

WOW!! That’s all I can really say, as the video speaks for itself. I know this is off topic a little, but I feel it is awesome enough to get some people to try AVP from Atari again, and join me in a game or 2.
I can’t wait for this movie, but until then I’m just going to play AVP a bunch on my PS3.
