Supposedly called "Kin" or "Kill Zone", this game has been lurking in the feeble minds video game addicts for quite some time, and honestly, even thought I'm not a PS2 gamer, this game is sounding pretty interesting......

lol...Never will a PS2 game ever hold a candle to Halo. Impossible. Not even a following XBox game compares to the greatness of Halo...how could the inferior PS2 even think it can!?

Pfff...PS2 = worst controller ever for shooters..even if they have a great game, it'll suck because of the controller.

Its not an excuse when its the truth. The analog sticks on the PS2 controller are crap imo. Too short, not a natural or comfortable position for both thumbs to hold both analogs.

And I've never heard a ps2 lover say the Xbox controller was bad for fps. Or anything else for that matter... just that it was too big. Well, theres the controller S so...

I also absolutely hate the PS2 controllers... the only reason those analog nubs were put on was to compete with the N64 controller. Its so uncomfy...

For KIN or Kill Zone, what ever its going to be called. I highly doubt they are going to be able to push the PS2 to that level where they can have all of those features, they'll probably have to wait until PS3.

why does the media contantly compare things to Halo? "the next best thing to Halo!" "halo Killer" Macaroni and Halo!"

dont get me wrong, its a great game and i love it, but why the contant need to refer to and compare to an older, respectable title. i dont ever remember seeing ads/articles that were like "next big thing since Super Mario Bros 3." or "this game will blow Mario 3 out of the water!" i think the media just attaches Halo to them just to get people to look, which is sad.

Why does the company think it's a big deal that a game they are making is going to be like another game that was released over a year ago?

Also, if it's going to be "just like Halo," why are they releasing it around the same time as Halo2?

Im not quite sure what you meant by that... but shut up anyways :) I am a big fan of Halo, as most Xbox players are... but why are you trying to create a 'Halo Killer' when Halo is 1 1/2 years old now? Honestly if you try to make a game that is in direct competition with Halo people will realize this and say 'Oh, its just trying to be like Halo. We've already played games like that' and no matter how good the game is, it will be shot down.

Who cares. Fall 2004? If this game does manage to be better than Halo, Halo 2 would have already been out for a good 6 months and still it would be inferior. Whats the point of hyping this game.

I really don't like ps2 so one of the big reasons i didn't buy it was because of that. They have no quality, i doubt the buttons are pressure sensitive and i hate the triangle sqaure and 4 button triggers. I liked the dreamcast controllers and they reminded me of xbox's so that is another reason i got an xbox.

Yup - I am sort of ashamed to admit it, but as a music game fan, I own a PS2 game called "Mad Maestro" (you can find it on the discount rack at any local WalMart). Long story as to how I ended up with it, but I have it. In that game, you direct an orchestra, and one of the things it gauges is how hard you hit the button. The hints say that if you're having a hard time hitting soft or hard, you can try tapping it for a soft hit and pressing it like you're going to hold it down for a hard one - but that's not necessary. It really does sense how hard you're hitting the buttons - those are just ways you can help yourself to hit it the right amount.

Dude...simple. It's because Halo is, bar none, the best and most successful XBox game to date. This is not only my opinion, but, hundred and thousands also agree. I will admit, the line got my attention...but, then that interest when into comical relief since PS2 isn't remotely capable of ever having a game on par or better than the greatness of Halo :)

Well I was trying to keep my post count at 500 for a while but I don't care anymore.

First of all, how could a game be better than the game it is immitating? They say it will be a Halo killer, but how could it be if it is just trying to be like Halo.

Anyhow, that website seems pretty cool. The writer was not a huge fanboy, he infat respected that the Xbox does have the best game. No comments about how it will indefinetly be better becuase it is on PS2 either. I respect that guy whoever he is.

Ever since Sony posted on a Tribes comercial "Halo killer" I have never taken them seriously.

And Tribes: aerial assault(aka Tribes2 for ps2) was far better on the pc.

Yeah, now at least we have the proof guys, the real proof now. Halo is the most successful game in the history of gaming console. Sony try to follow his steps by making something that they think will outstanding it. Sorry Sony, we will have Halo 2 in the 2004, maybe you should try to find something new and stop making something like "Halo Killer Here, come to see".

No fps (outside of the new Perfect Dark) will be able to touch Halo.

Same for fighting games. I worked at an electronics store and they had 3 tables. Each table had a dreamcast and a PS2. One of the PS2 games that were being shown was Street Fighter 3D. (or something like that) Anyway, the directional pad (not the sticks) was/is not connected so I couldn't do the fireball move with ken. It sucks, plus the controller is too akward and gives me hand cramps. The Xbox controller by far is the best I have used for fighting games and FPS games.

In regards to FPSs and the PS2 and XBox controllers...it just seems to me that the implementation of triggers on the XBox controller compared to the dual buttons on the top left and right of the PS2 controller seems far more natural. I mean, when a person shoots a gun, he's pulling a trigger...not tapping a button. :eek:

More BS from Sony. Always with the hype, and because of it, the game will sell millions. The thing that makes me laugh is that they hype the wrong games. Ne1 see the videos to Rise To Honour? (SECA game featuring Jet Lee). Seriously, it looks like the worst 3D beat'em up I've ever seen, yet Everytime Sony show a (Reall Crappy Everytime) video of it, they're so proud and call it like the best game ever? PFFT, I've lost all trust in the praise of Sony.

It would be nice to have something to renew my faith in even having a PS2. I've gradually traded in most of my PS2 games for Xbox titles. But better than Halo? I won't hold my breath.
