Original Killzone Coming To PS3?

ESRB suggests it might.

Recently flagged by Gamepur, ESRB search results for Guerilla’s gritty 2004 shooter has Killzone listed as both a PS2 and PS3 release. Despite being an obvious addition to Sony’s “HD Classics” range there has been no official announcement of a visually-updated port.

That said, recent reforms at SCEE, seeing the closure of BigBig Studios (Pursuit Force, Little Deviants) as well as a merger between SCE Cambridge and Guerilla Games could suggest movement on the Killzone front.

      Absolutely not. I spent a hell of a lot of time online with KZ on PS2. Loved it. Might look terrible if I were to go back to it now though, having played 2 & 3, but at the time it was awesome.

        I went back to it since getting a PS3 and it really doesn’t stand the test of time. They will need to tweak a few things like the very repetitive dialogue bursts of “We need support…”

        bought it off ebay for a couple of quid before KZ3 was released. Great game.

      It was pretty bad as a stand alone shooter and even worse when compared to KZ 2&3. This would be a pointless re-release imo and nothing more than a cash-in

      Got it in a value pack with God of War (I or II, can’t remember) and I stopped playing after an hour, maybe even less. Really not my cup of tea.

      For me, Killzone pushed the PS2 beyond what it was capable of – and it showed, the draw-distance and pop-in were awful, something the PS3 “shouldn’t” suffer from.

      Can’t see there being a single blu-ray disc if KZ3 takes up 42gb on its own…

    Good, Killzone was great. Struggled with the PS2 hardware but was well worth playing.

    I still have my old Killzone, plus the opening sequence blew me away. And I would buy it for the PS3 for the multiplayer ^^

      Lol. I’m going to stop re-buying such games, I have the original and this will probably only spoils my happy memories. Plus, I have a huge backlog of next gen games to play!

        Yeah I guess it’s good for people who haven’t played them bfore. Despite my comment I have bought Resident Evil 4 HD (but you can now walk when shooting, and it was the best PS2 game ever); Ico & SotC; and preordered the very limited Zavvi.com MGS Collection. Oh the hypocrisy!

        Mind you, I’ve not even loaded up RE4 or Ico/SotC yet!

        Really, you should play GoW3. I avoided buying it due to my backlog of games (only unwrapped Dead Rising 2: Off the Record and Deus Ex last night funnily enough. Not about to play them, I just put the discs in my CD wallet). However I played the GoW demo and thought it was awesome, even though I don’t usually like button-bashing-fighting games.

        Other games that still haven’t been opened include RDR GOTY Edition and Fallout New Vegas. I have loads more that I haven’t played, but these are still in their wrapping!

    Nice. I quite like these HD remakes. Hope they bring the PSP Killzone to PS3 too.

    Fantastic, the split screen makes it the best of the series.

        Nowhere near as good.
        The first Killzone’s splitscreen is my all-time favourite for a shooter, ahead of the likes of Timesplitters.

        Fair enough. It wasn’t the best on KZ3 I have to agree.

    Cambridge eh?….. why not get there skulls together and build a new Medievil with the combined power of Gurilla Games?

    Killzone is in great in all…. but why can’t Sony revive there old games, would love to see a new G-Police and Colony Wars heck if they wanted them to sell both could easily be a FPS… *cough*
