E3: 'Killzone 2' trailer

Sony is hoping that the sci-fi shooter 'Killzone 2' will be its "'Halo' killer"--a must-have PS3 exclusive that will entice gamers to buy the console.


The original trailer for Killzone 2 at E3 2005 featured notoriously prerendered cinematics that raised expectations for the game beyond any reasonable level--or so we thought. Last night--more than two years later--developer Guerrilla showed off a playable demo that may have detractors eating their words. If the trailer is any indication of the final game--due out in 2008--it looks as if Sony's finally got a PS3 exclusive that will have Xbox 360 owners green with envy.
