This Week in Killzone 2 (and more demo codes)

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Feb 16, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

I hope those of you in the US are enjoying your President’s Day Holiday, (assuming you get the day off). When we get back into the office tomorrow, we’ll be amping up our Killzone 2 coverage, featuring a look inside the new Killzone.com, live chats with developer Guerrilla Games, and even a contest or two.

From reading the comments, we gathered that some of you weren’t able to track down a Helghast soldier in Home yesterday to request a Killzone 2 demo code. Fortunately, I was able to get ahold of a few (hundred) more to distribute via our PlayStation Twitter account.

If you’re already following our account, all you’ve got to do is send us an “@reply” and ask. We’ll direct message you the code when we get into the office tomorrow (Tuesday, Pacific time).

If you’re new to Twitter, or haven’t yet joined, I suppose we owe you a bit of an explanation. To get our attention, just type “@sonyplaystation” into a Tweet and ask for the demo (see pic below as an example).

You’ll also need to be following us, or we can’t send you a direct message with the demo code. This part’s easy – just click on “Follow” underneath our logo in the upper right corner of the page.

Enjoy the rest of the long weekend, and we’ll see you tomorrow!

UPDATE: Thanks for all the KZ tweets, we’ve definitely gotten all that we can handle. Just about to start sending out codes. . .

Agreed DaxMontana. Cuz if you want your sales to go through the roof dont you want more than just a few people to play the demo or the whole world? The more the better.

@Schnacky

My statement still stands. I have the Demo and it is no beta. I ended up going through the EU you PS Store to get mine because the GameStop near me was out of demo codes which again were not beta related.

Also this post on here is also NOT for beta it is for the same codes that were being handed out on HOME and at GS.

Last I checked the beta is over and the game was pretty much finished before November. No need for a last minute beta when they have 3+ months of clean up time and the game has already past sony’s certification.

multiplayer would have been nice in the demo though. all that space (1.7 GB) for only two missions in one level?

That was posted hours ago so I dont think you will be getting the code. Sorry.

I gave up on getting code, there is no reason it has to be this hard. I’m not jumping through hoops to get a demo, when XBL gives you demo for every game, this is just plain BS. I hate the way things are done at Sony. I made a Twitter account, I tried to follow PS blog, but then it wants me to make a Flicker account? This whole Sony setup is halfassed. hell by the time I get a demo the game will be out nice job Sony as usual. Hell I hear the demo is not even that good like playing molasses, SONY this is not the way to get people to buy more software OK?

Ever since the merging of PSN ids on this blog it seems to be filled with whining babies…just an observation.

+ Gdoggs on February 17th, 2009 at 1:45 pm said:

PS if you want to give a demo out just do it, stop with the stupid jump through hoop games, we don’t like it.

@KSPRAYDAD, you whining about whiners offers nothing to any conversation. Thanks for your brillant observations though.

Met a Helghast soldier already and got a code, very awesome demo, totally worth waiting for.

@158…

The ‘conversation’ as it were would be just a list of the offenders…shall I?

Seriously, read this thread…SONY is offering some early access to North American PS3 owners and we get 100 out of 150 commenters whining about it. For instance, you yourself saying ‘we don’t like it’…really? Who elected you the representative voice for all PS3 owners?

If YOU want a job in SCEA marketing go get one…otherwise chill and stop acting like you are ‘the’ voice of reason around here.

On topic.

Thank you SONY for another oppourtunity at getting early demo codes without purchase…for those intent on getting the game I’m sure they have opened an EU PSN id already but for the others the tease of getting a demo earlier than one day before is great and I’m sure more teases are in the works.

Just let it go, most of us just think it’s ridiculous that we have to fight our way to a code for a demo that everybody should have access to. And NO I’m not making ANOTHER account, I have enough as it is.

WEEE!! thank you so much! i just got my code :D can’t wait to play!!!!

With marketing moves like this one, it’s not hard to see how Sony ended up in last place this generation.

Looks like the codes are still being sent out. I just got mine a half hour ago. :D

This game just needs to be released already. Some stores are just sitting on copies. What’s the point?

And where is the marketing?

Yeah, I’m not falling for this again. LBP codes drove me to almost hating the game! Good times for ps3!

ADVERTISE! Please great people of Sony! I have been following your consoles since you started! And can recall heavy advertising. I remember when everyone knew what Playstation was. Now relatives ask me if my PS3 is a XBOX. Never mind that….let the world know about Killzone 2 being ONLY on ps3. Its almost launch and i haven’t seen advertisement. Its driving me nuts that a great game is coming out and i get asked what killzone is! Actually one of my friends i met on HOME didn’t even know what killzone was. Well i hope this changes.

It’s actually not that bad of a deal since everyone can still play the demo when the game comes out. That way people wanting to make an educated decision on the game before buying will get a chance to do so. The reason people are so upset is because of this disparity between the various regions. If all the other regions didn’t offer their demo until the day before launch, then nobody would be upset. Instead, people in the U.S. feel like we’re being suckered into buying through Gamestop because they’re the one retailer who payed for “special” rights to preorder goodies. While I’m not against preorder goodies, demos should never be used as incentives to preorder because you’re basically advertising to people who are already committed to buying the game. Unless of course you think the demo is horrible and might actually turn people away from the game, then I guess it makes sense to only give it to the ppl who preorder.

On Sunday I spent the time installing Home on my PS3, spent hours looking for the soldiers to find out that the room they were in was not a room that can be accessed from the Central Plaza but in the Gamers lounge. After spending some time figuring it out, when I finally got into that room, the soldiers were gone. So I followed the comments and they decided to give it away with Twitter, I sign up last night and still waiting for the code.

I also did the Twitter thing and still don’t have a code. It’ll be awsome to get a code but if not than that’s ok cause I pre-order the game on Feb. 6 and it’ll be a surprise when I boot up the game on Feb. 27 so no spoilers.
add me if you want.

Thanks for the code Jeff. To everyone that didn’t get one, keep trying. I’ve tried like 5 times to get a code. And don’t worry, only 8 more days until you can download it for yourself.

+ saxplaya07 on February 17th, 2009 at 10:41 pm said:

ok, so i played the demo……graphics were great everything was great except for one thing LOL, being a cod4 player(good one at that)the controls just werent to my liking, dunno if i can configure(probably can) im sure u can though, but controller layout change to cod4 then i’ll be good to go, not much of a campaigner, im just really into multiplayer… but i still think im getting this the first day it comes out, well i am LOL, l8errrr,

+ xploren on February 17th, 2009 at 11:30 pm said:

You have to admit, though, this is a demo and not a beta. And it’s already available in another country for everyone. So it’s a bit of a bad move to tease us with codes in this situation.

This demo was amazing, I can’t wait for the full game

Make it hard for me to test the game and I’m more likely to buy it! No, really! Just like if I went to buy a car and they said “in order to test drive it you need to either create a EU identity or set up a twitter account and wait for our code”, I would totally do that.

Actually no, I wouldn’t buy the car.

How to get the Demo (w/o any code):

Create a new user in XMB. Create a new PSN account for this user but select UK as country.
Complete creating account. Sign into Store and viola! – the demo is available for download like usual.
