Pre-order Killzone 2 at GameStop, Play the Demo Now!

TJ Consunji's Avatar + Posted by TJ Consunji on Feb 05, 2009 // Product Marketing Manager

Hello All…

It’s TJ from the Marketing Team, back again for another update on Killzone 2.

A ton of Killzone 2 reviews have posted & the game is already receiving critical acclaim, including 5 Editor’s Choice awards from various media.

IGN Editors' Choice PTOM Editors' Choice GamePro Editors' Choice

GameSpy Editors' Choice GameZone Editors' Choice

If you just can’t wait until Killzone 2 launches on February 27th, starting right now, the single-player demo will be available to all of you who pre-ordered Killzone 2 from GameStop. Those that pre-ordered in-store should be able to use the voucher card, while those that pre-ordered through GameStop.com should receive your redeemable code later today.

We’ve got 22 days until Killzone 2 deploys exclusively on the PS3.

More info to come soon on how to get one of these…

Killzone 2 Helghast Rifle Replica

(No, it’s not a render… it’s a replica.)

Stay tuned.

– TJ

Will it have Online Demo play? Guess not but it’ll be ok just with single player!

Please look into adding In-game xmb music and offline co-op!

so no demo unless it’s preordered? or is that for the early demo?


14

+ KINGV84 on February 5th, 2009 at 10:39 am said:

I cant wait to play the demo, it is downloading as we speak. Get it now from the EU store. Just go make an account. easy.

+ Anzo42 on February 5th, 2009 at 10:39 am said:

I don’t get why they would want to limit the amount of people that want to play the game by locking the NA demo to pre-orders only. From a marketing perspective, that is just dumb. I don’t want to buy the game from Gamestop.


16

+ Stoffinator on February 5th, 2009 at 10:39 am said:

You can also get it from the Euro store, so the pre order was pointless for the most part.

+ Saiks on February 5th, 2009 at 10:45 am said:

This is crazy… Replace the demo for everyone. Killzone 2 is suppose to be a blockbuster and this is just insane. Don’t get me wrong i already pre-ordered.


22

+ terrabliss on February 5th, 2009 at 10:46 am said:

For all of you in the U.S who want to get their hands on the demo without this preorder bs just create a new user, and at the 1st screen change it from united states to united kingdom and then continue to make the fake account and voila free demo, the way they should always be!

+ Slough89 on February 5th, 2009 at 10:48 am said:

I live in Canada, we don’t have Gamestops here. Where can I pre-order in Canada to get have access to the demo? Or will the demo be available to everyone like EU?

Thanks – keep up the great work.

    You can pre-order from EB Games if you\’re in Canada. They have the demo voucher codes for Killzone 2.

@ 22 –

The demo will be freely available on the US store on Feb. 26 if you don’t want to preorder from Gamestop.

    That\’s correct… The Killzone 2 demo will be on the U.S. PlayStation Store a day before launch.

+ womfalcs3 on February 5th, 2009 at 10:50 am said:

When will the US demo come out for those who didn’t pre-order from GameStop?

I, for example, pre-ordered from Amazon, and I don’t have a European PSN account.

LISTEN PEOPLE JUST GET ON YOUR PS3 NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, MAKE A NEW USER, CREATE A NEW PSN ACCOUNT FOR THAT USER USING UNITED KINGDOM AS YOUR REGION (THE 1ST SCREEN WHEN SIGNING UP) THEN GO TO STORE AND GET THE DEMO FOR FREE AND INSTANTLY!!!

@zombie9: Imagine what it’s like to use XBLA. You can’t download ANY new demos unless you pay for their Gold membership. They’re timed-exclusive to Gold members for about a week or two. Depressing!

Also: I hate to be off-topic here, but PSN needs far more avatars.

Just look at how many redundant avatars are on this thread alone.

Makes it tough to identify users based on just their avatar now.

    You know… if you had a PSP, you can access your PS3 via remote play, enter in your voucher code, and begin the download on your PS3 so it would be ready for you by the time you got home. Pretty cool, huh?

Although as that’s the Euro store, i wouldn’t be buying a lot.

Downloaded the Killzone 2 demo from the UK psn store…

The graphics are excellent, the best lighting and effects I’ve seen in a console game, but the textures aren’t as sharp as say, Gears 2 (or an Unreal engine game). The sounds are great.

I have one major complaint, the controls are LAGGY. WTF is wrong with this company to do this? It makes your guy feel heavier? No it doesn’t, it just makes it harder to aim and makes me want to stick to Bad Company.

+ caliblue15 on February 5th, 2009 at 11:08 am said:

TJ,

Can we please have an update on the Best Buy theme codes. Are these live yet? I ask this question because thousands of people on the internet cannot get their codes to work. (ala MGS4).

Is this a code issue, or that you guys have not put it up on the store yet. (I know its picked and ran by Best Buy, but you guys should have the answer as well.)

Thanks,

caliblue15

P.S. That replica is amazing, I’m staying tuned.

Congratulations to GG and SONY, after playing this demo I can see the the previous and reviews weren’t lying, that Graphics are above any other game (including in other consoles), the DTS sound is amazing, the music is very Star Wars-esque and gives a feel of “epicness”
that suits the game perfectly.
Thank god for the option to set the control to “Alternate 2″ too. I just feel like home playing with this setting.
Day 1 purchased for has been confirmed!
