Killzone 2 not going 3D [update]
The feature had gameplay footage of Killzone 2 and other titles in a section on the games that you’ll be playing. Sony claim they were “included for demonstration purposes only.”
“Unfortunately, our feature did not make it clear that the 2D game footage was included for demonstration purposes only. We apologize for the erroneous inference that 3D versions of LBP, Wipeout HD, Killzone 2, Gran Turismo 5 or Super Stardust HD are in production.”
It’s not the most convincing statement. It’s a bit convenient that Killzone 2 footage happened to be amongst a group of games that have already been demonstrated to the press in 3D. Was it a blunder, or are they hoping to keep this surprise in the bag a bit longer? Time will tell.
The story has been doing the rounds over the weekend following The Gamer Access’s initial report. The denial is disappointing because a 3D Killzone 2 is an exciting prospect. Guerilla Games make it happen.

The latest episode of Qore – an official Sony platform – has revealed that Killzone 2 will be receiving a 3D update this summer alongside the PS3′s 3D-enabling firmware update.
There has been a lot of speculation that Killzone 3 will have 3D, but news that the second game will be getting an update has come in from under the radar.
It joins a growing list of Sony developed titles to receive the 3D treatment, the others are Super Stardust HD, Wipeout HD, LittleBigPlanet and Gran Turismo.
Will this stellar line-up be enough to make the 3D sceptics reconsider? Probably not, but we’ll tell you a secret – it gets us a little excited.
