Warning: Helghast Invasion of Home imminent

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Feb 15, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Killzone Helghast

In the upcoming (just 12 days away!) Killzone 2, the ISA forces lead an assault of the planet Helghan. But that doesn’t mean the Helghast are on the defensive. In fact, my intel tells me that the Helghast forces are en route to PlayStation Home today.

Fortunately, the Helghast won’t be armed with STA-52 Light Assault Rifles (per se), but with demo codes for Killzone 2.

So if you don’t already have access (by pre-ordering), just jump into Home tonight starting at about 6pm Pacific (9pm Eastern) and keep an eye out for the Helghast soldiers. When you find one, work up the courage and… just ask. If they’ve got any left, they’ll direct message you with the demo key.

Then you can punch that code into the PlayStation Store (upper right corner), download the demo, and repay the Helghan emissary by… invading their planet. Oh well.

Haha nice and ive already played the demo like 20 times! It’s going to be a game we will all remember!

I thought that the only way you can get a demo right now is by making a europe psn name?

Yeah, I, like many downloaded the demo from the EU store. Not to rain on the parade for you guys or anything, but that demo should be available to all for marketing purposes. That game needs to sell well to make the (I assume horrendous) development costs pay off. We’ll see, I know I’m buying a copy.

Do this more often with other products!

lol that’s great. I’ve already got the demo, or i’d be all over this. Great idea though.

Why couldn’t they give away KZ2 cloths instead?


10

+ CitizenInsane27 on February 15th, 2009 at 2:49 pm said:

@DPyro

I would make more sense to me if they gave out Home clothing or something like that instead of demo keys, but meh, it’s their deal.

+ Jeigh on February 15th, 2009 at 2:50 pm said:

Pfft, no way in hell I could beat out a throng of other players swarming anything that even resembles a Helghast soldier from a distance. I’ve got the game pre-ordered, and off of Amazon.com no less, so I’ll be one of those soldiers myself in a short while (by the way, when does that “short while” end? I have no idea when they’re going to send me my code for the outfit).

+ EvoAnubis on February 15th, 2009 at 2:53 pm said:

Hmm . . . why not? I already have it thanks to my EU account, but I was going to be hanging out in Home today anyway; may as well have some fun.

+ ketzler on February 15th, 2009 at 2:55 pm said:

Having to win the Helghan Home clothes would have been an awesome prize instead but regardless this makes Home a little more interesting for the time being.

Once again, the demo will be live in the US to everyone the day before KZ2 launches. Seriously, how many more times does this need to be said?

WTF are you talking about? Things like this happen in Home all the time. John D. was giving out d/l codes for every Capcom game on PSN awhile back.

Not to mention Warhawk and SOCOM were awarded for a contest yesterday.

Home picks up. Can’t wait till something’s released that’ll get my non gamer actual RL friends to join in.

hahaha ive been playing demo since launch cause i got EU psn :-D but ima have to jump on home to see my future home costumes since i pre ordered with amazon ;-P

+ Byrd864 on February 15th, 2009 at 3:02 pm said:

this is going to get interesting…

For those who ordered off of amazon, we won’t get the costumes till sometime just after the launch of the game. Least that is what I read somewhere I think.

hey is their goin to be a killzone2 game area in home?


22

+ Spartancloud on February 15th, 2009 at 3:05 pm said:

I already got the demo, but for those who don’t this is great. Also at first I thought this was the weapon give away, I hope I don’t miss my chance at that it would be awesome to have a replica.

+ Emiel on February 15th, 2009 at 3:08 pm said:

Can you tell us a little more about integration between Killzone 2 and Home.


24

+ BlindMango on February 15th, 2009 at 3:10 pm said:

that’s a cool way to do it, awesome!


25

+ S-E-G on February 15th, 2009 at 3:11 pm said:

last time they had me running around for the killzone guy all i got was a message to pre-order the game from amazon, i think what they really want is for as many people to log into home and maybe just maybe some suckers will buy virtual items, ps3 is becoming the milk wagon that xbox 360 already is


26

+ jipmg on February 15th, 2009 at 3:14 pm said:

you guys should do one of those parties again, like a killzone party, and sell the killzone costume for like $1.00 and not only will we get our favorite evil trooper as a costume, but you guys make $$$


27

+ J-Skee on February 15th, 2009 at 3:15 pm said:

I hope there’s enough to give out. I pretty much never get to win oppurtunities like this, so hopefully I can get one.

+ Sharingan_itachi on February 15th, 2009 at 3:18 pm said:

Okay, thats lame especially since Home Managers can’t do their jobs right(the ones on forums).

+ Alcala7 on February 15th, 2009 at 3:19 pm said:

haha, i’ve preordered the game already and played the demo more times thn the RE5 demo.

+ Slayer612 on February 15th, 2009 at 3:20 pm said:

Or you can just create a UK account and download the demo yourself from the UK Store, thats what I did.

This is a really great idea…well done

This is how Home should be used. I almost deleted it today, but if you guys keep doing stuff like this I might come to enjoy Home.

It would be nice if you gave us the costumes. >_>

Jeff,

Hear me out please. This is reguarding the PlayStation Network trophies.

I for one enjoy grabbing trophies while I play a game, but there is one thing that drives me crazy reguarding trophies. This is the lack of polish going into the trophies. What I mean is many games are starting to lable “NovaStrike Trophies” and “Wipeout HD Trophies” or even “Street Fighter IV Trophy pack”. This makes the trophie list look very un-proffesinal and unpolished. Is there anyway you can pass this onto the Japanese Q&A and get these this enforced so the trophie list titles are “WipeOut HD” and “NovaStrike”?

Thank you
p.s. if you could ackowledge this.

Will this demo have mp on it? If not then i dont need to get on home. Cuz half or 75% of PS3 users played the demo already by getting it from Gamestop or by making a UK name. So are we going to get anything else from the demo or the same as the gamestop and uk demo?

Shady,

+ Companion_Kube on February 15th, 2009 at 3:52 pm said:

Can i just get the code now?
Pretty please?


42

+ Happy_Spud on February 15th, 2009 at 4:02 pm said:

They should do this more often, otherwise Home is a waste.

Why isnt’t this demo available for all? I never played KZ1, so there is little incentive to buy KZ2. Sony, step up your game!

+ Barackobama8 on February 15th, 2009 at 4:02 pm said:

CAN U PLEASE GIVES US THE KILLZONE 2 CLOTHES FOR FREE MORE PEOPLE WOULD LIKE IT AND BUY THE GAME. I KNOW IM BUYING IT THE SECOND IT COMES OUT

Hi Jeff,

This is a great idea. Keep doing stuff like this and keep integrating Playstation games with Home and watch how the community will grow exponentially.

Keep the great work.

P.s
Just wanted to say how much I love this blog… so much better than the competition.
