- Joseph is currently a full time student at The New School taking up screenwriting, and in his free time, dabbling in gaming journalism. Saying he loves games is an understatement, but movies and television shows are both a passion, and he could talk hours about both. I don't post a lot of interesting things on Twitter, but if you'd like to talk games or movies, follow me @Nesmaster75.
The original Killzone is the latest to get the HD treatment in the Sony library. Killzone originally came out in 2004 for the Playstation 2 to mediocre reviews, but was the starting point for one of the most critically acclaimed series on the Playstation 3.
Killzone HD is available as a standalone download on the Playstation Store for $14.99 and also part of the Killzone Trilogy, which houses all the Killzone games on a retail disc with the Playstation 3 DLC counterparts. Killzone HD has had a complete overhaul, now running in 720p at 30 fps and sharper textures and visuals along with higher quality sound effects. And for all the trophy hunters, it features a complete list including a platinum to get you to do everything the game offers. The Killzone Trilogy as well as the standalone original are now available for the Playstation 3 at $39.99 and $14.99 respectively.
As a bonus, for the release of the trilogy, Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 will have a double XP weekend from now until October 29th to get the multiplayer community stirring. If you’ve never played the first one due to the dated visuals or any of the other titles in the series, now you have no excuse!
