PS Vita Version of Killzone Dated
During Gamescom 2012, Sony announced that PlayStation Vita would be getting its own version of Killzone. Officially titled, Killzone: Mercenary, Sony revealed that Guerrilla Games would not be developing the games, but gave the honors to GG sister studio, SCE Cambridge Studio.
During a press event last night, SCE Cambridge Studio confirmed a release for which the Killzone: Mercenary game would be in stores, which is this September 17. Which is kinda of shocking, considering there is a real possibility that brand new video-game hardware could be shipped around the same time from both Sony and Microsoft.
By checking out the visuals alone, Killzone: Mercenary looks to be a triple-A title for the Vita, something the portable device has been missing. And because of that, you’d figure Sony would market this as a system seller. But because it’s so close to a possible release date of new consoles, I would have a hard time believing the general public would be buying both a Vita and new Xbox/PlayStation home console.
