pushed back due to scheduling (Resistance and SOCOM releases). seems to make sense from a financial standpoint. it will also give them more time for polish and to make sure that it is damn near perfect.

I think this was confirmed the other week at their European Playstation day thingy. I'd rather they held it back and finished it, it also gives Resistance 2 a much more open retail presence through Christmas.

yes this is old.. the release date was given during "Playstation Day" in Europe... and personally i do believe to that it has to do with a strategic release date. LBP, motorstorm and Resistance 2 are all going to be huge title and they are all coming out fall of this year.. so why release KZ2 fall of this year too. sony needs KZ2 to sell huge!! so its perfect to release it in feb when theres like no other games coming out that time

Xbox had one of the best luanches last fall with all the good games and it didnt hurt anything. It probably helped them. I dont think it has anything to do with that. I think it has the smae thing to do with why HAZE was pushed back. the play testing for this game is probably not going very well, and like i said many times before, if the game is getting alot of hype and the playtest dont go well they will push it back and try to make it better. and 9 times out of 10 the game is finally released and isnt improved.. good exemples are Army of Two, and HAZE.

http://www.psu.com/Killzone-2-delay-+quot;a-pure-management-decision+quot;-News--a0003727-p0.php

/Back in early January, Killzone 2 was in the top five of our most anticipated PS3 exclusives of 2008 list. That no longer makes sense. As you surely know, Killzone 2 has been delayed to 2009. What you don't know is why -- until now of course.

Ron Eagle, Sr. Manager of PR at SCEA, revealed that the decision to delay the game until February 2009 was purely a managerial one.

"To be clear, there is nothing wrong or causing a delay to the development of [Killzone 2]," said Eagle. "We had to look at the fall calendar with SOCOM, LittleBigPlanet, MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, Resistance 2, plus some PSN titles and make a decision where each game should come out. Killzone 2 was moved to Feb 2009 to make sure we didnít have three shooters in the marketplace competing for retail dollars during the same holiday season.

"Hope this helps - a lot of times we gamers read delay and think something is wrong, in this case, it was a pure management decision."

It's satisfying to know that Killzone 2 will surely ship next February; far too many games have seen multiple delays as of late. A little extra development time can never hurt either, especially for a title that's already running beautifully. Keep watching PSU for all things Killzone 2.


and i couldnt agree more.. to have Socom, Resistance 2 and KZ2 all launch within the same time is insane, i wouldnt know what title to get, i would go nuts and broke. you gotts spread the release dates alittle, i remember that time last year when warhawk, heavenly sword, folklore, R&C and uncharted all came out in a 3 month time window!.. the wife almost killed me and didnt even have enough time to play each game. im glad KZ2 is being released feb, however i think what they shoudl have done was pushed resistance 2 to release in feb and keep KZ2 for fall!

Pushed back by who? Sony never announced a release date for it.

they actually did.. they said KZ2 would be released Fall 2007. they announced it afew months ago like towards the beginning of this year. thats why it was a super high anticipated ps3 exclusive for 2008, now its not :lol: ..

Can't believe that Gears 1 & 2, Resistance 1 & 2 will release before this game. This will end up like Haze you watch. Overly hyped game that turns out to be crap. But it maybe the later. I hope you PS3 guys get a game you can actually brag about for years to come. Good Luck!

Little Big Planet is one of the most exciting prospects in gaming right now IMO.
