NBA Live 10 will improve, dev promises

Massive Action Game 'only possible' on PlayStation 3

Insomniac = Killzone 2 fanboys

I'll admit it -- against my better judgment, I am getting excited for Killzone 2. I don't want to be, because as far as I'm concerned, Guerrilla Games is an unproven entity and has done nothing to convince me that it so far deserves its sta...
