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

Guys, you’ve made some marketing mistakes in the past. Please please don’t do it again.

MASS PRODUCE THIS GUN AND SELL IT.

I would gladly pay an extra $75++ for a replica gun like I did with the GoW2 Lancer. Hell I wanted that replica Bullseye you guys had but sadly; NOT AVAILABLE. An extra $100 you guys could’ve made.

Well, I didnt get my pre-order code from Gamestop, appears they only got like 5 or six vouchers in the store, and about 17 total pre-orders. That is just dumb. I also have to agree with the others here, it is pretty stupid to offer a demo of a game as a pre-order incentive. Why not use the demo to try and lure people to buy that are not already committed to it? Luckily, I downloaded the demo from the EU store, and it is pretty awesome.

Just one major gripe – PLEASE GIVE US CONTROL OVER CUSTOM BUTTON MAPPING IN THE FINAL RELEASE OF THE GAME! If I was able to swap the melee to R3 and down-the-barrel aiming to L1 / L2 I would be completely satisfied.

The replica is awesome and bloody love the demo

Well, if the replica is a prize then that means everyone living outside the U.S. is screwed… :(

I played the demo yesterday, and it’s bloody awesome. You should release it way before Feb 26, as it would increase the hype (yes, even more!) and get a few more people get down on those pre-orders.

The “replica” is clearly a computer rendering.

To suggest otherwise is ridiculous.

I live in Canada and pre-ordered from EB Games. The demo is amazing!! I only hope this replica isnt limited edition, or a contest prize. I would like to buy one.

Sorry DaxMontana, you’re incorrect. What you’re looking at is truly a 1:1 scale physical replica and not a CG rendering. Trust me, I know.

More from TJ later.

#260 GaryBarth

Gary, you’re wrong, despite what you think you “know”. Shadows aren’t aliased in real-life. Nor do straight lines displayed stair-stepping in real life (ie: like the poorly textured legs of the table in this CG image).

They may indeed have a real replica of this gun, but the image shown in this blog is not real.

You know I’m in the US and someone in these blogs mentioned how to play this DEMO NOW! All ya have to do is make a UK account and BAM Download the free demo Now not 2 weeks from now or have to blow your money to try a demo. You know what pisses me off and why I even sold my PSP 3000 last week is their is no SUPPORT for games on the USA PSN for it. I looked on the UK and they have crap loads of PSP games to buy and demos to try we here in America get the boot you guys should be a shamed of yourselves SONY. Treating us Americans like we are Rich and should buy demos 99% of the time and other countries get this crap for free weeks before us half the time. Oh and to get my point accross what is this HYPE about the Killzone 2 game being the best Graphic’s aroung LOL LOL LOL LOL thats a Joke right? I have PLAYED this demo and to me it looks no better than the COD4 or 5 games. Just different button layouts and different stuff to do. Same look to me and SAME GRAPHIC’S to me as well. What a HYPE you guys are pulling and the Graphic’s aren’t Top notch either STOP lieing to us. GOD!!

@TJ Consunji, David Bull
Game already pre-ordered in UK (since I’m in Europe…) well the REAL question about Killzone 2 is:

Which video output is recommended by Guerrilla to 1080p tv users? 8)
-720p (default video output)
-forced 1080p upscale (able by unticking 720p & 1080i while 1080p is kept in the XMB video settings).

Ongoing Discussion thread in the official Euro PlayStation forum ensues.

@ 265
this is why you wont be a computer game design major…
the graphics are clearly far better than cod5 or cod4 which are great but really flawed. i had cod4 was an “ok” game because the very good guys could not stand out from the noobs. its soo easy to kill people in both games thats why i preferred bfbc a game that requires more skill than both games and uses a stronger engine than cod games.

Killzone looks the same as COD4 and 5 sorry man it just does.
