It’s too bad I have no friends that have this game, and that I totally suck at it. Otherwise, count me in!

Somebody want to explain why they’re letting kids 13-17 play in this tournament when it’s a Mature rated game? You expect parents to understand the rating system, yet break it in your own rules…wow, Jacko the Wacko’s going to be all over this!

13 year olds?

sony needs to solve their double standard issues. 13 year olds can play kz2.. but they cant see the word poop in home, because of what again?

really cool.. do you know if there will be spectating allowed? im not sure how that really works but iv seen that in the game., it would be cool if we could watch some of these matches..
BTW: great u2 interview.. and how do sony expect us to keep our jobs when you guys are just roling out insane stuff all the time?? 2009 ps3 ftw

why is it that every time a game i play holds a contest i can’t join because i’m not from the US is it just me or does anyone else think this is just bull****.

@14, true but you can easily find very young kids playing KZ2 on US server.

They are so annoying but they play well though.

I find it funny that the restrictions are 13+ when its an M-rated game:P

I hope the US players take this chance and have some fun. It would be cool if some matches were streamed.

Sounds great.

But, aren’t M-rated titles to be played by 17+ gamers?

I mean, we all know that never happens, but still…curious.

why are the Canadians always complaining?
dude just STFU and go watch some hockey and listen to nikelback

+ Jeigh on April 28th, 2009 at 2:40 pm said:

Apparently I’m not the only one to catch the irony of having the competition open to 13-year-olds. Can’t buy it until you’re 17 and, as I recall, you can’t even have a PSN account until you’re 17 or so…

NICE! I’m probably not going to win or anything, but it is very nice that there’s a competition like this going on for Killzone 2! Those Helghast suits look incredible! I’d wear one to school! lol

Life-size authentic Helghast suits? Can you wear them? Either way, that’s totally awesome!!!! (Especially if you can wear them…)

    Helghast suits are wearable. They\’re created by a Hollywood special effects studio.

+ xenorevlis on April 28th, 2009 at 3:01 pm said:

Pretty sure you can wear them, though somehow $8000 sounds way off for one costume. That’s like film-studio creature skin prices.

why is it that the US always gets the good stuff?

people in the EU/Canada/Australia (hell the rest of the world) really are losing faith in supporting a company, that just does jack for them..

Wow, uh #22, really, you think Nickelback when you think Canada? Ok, sure. I’ll avoid making any comments on what I associate with the US, for your sake.

Yeah, I was excited reading this blog post until it clarified that it would only include US residents. I suppose it makes sense that it’s organized by SCEA; I just find it surprising that Sony doesn’t show the same enthusiasm for bringing services and events across the world (hm, videostore?). Come on, you’re a multinational corporation, supported by consumers all across the globe. In fact, your sales in the US have been hammered by the competition, yet you’re preferential treatment still holds for the US. Maybe i’m avoiding some other issues associated with distributing rewards overseas, or something… but when I think Killzone, I think Netherlands, Europe. So why this event should not include Europe, seems to me a bit messed up. And why this shouldn’t include all of North America (including Canada, where I am from), is beyond me.

Ah well, i’ll wait my turn. Here’s hoping the videostore will turn up soon…

@ 35 I hope your wrong cuz if thats so then I wont buy the map packs until the tourny is over then. Cuz I was goin to buy them this week. But I will wait and see what the official word is.

Nice idea, though I’d certainly never have a chance against those at the top of the leaderboards.

@39 who cares. Just sign up anyways and have 3 teammates with ya. Its not like its costing you anything. I know I am no god at this game either but would rather enjoy trying anyways. So just give it a shot. ;)
