To show our appreciation to all you Killzone fans, we will be holding a “March for Helghan II Sweepstakes,” where you have a chance to win a Killzone 3 Limited Helghast Edition just for playing Killzone 3 online multiplayer. Starting Friday, March 25th (that’s tomorrow!) and running through Sunday, April 10th, we’ll be giving away 10 Limited Helghast Editions each day for 17 straight days. Members of the Killzone 3 team will log on to PlayStation Network throughout the sweepstakes and randomly select players in multiplayer matches. We will not select players more than once during the sweepstakes, and will notify winners via the email address associated with their PSN account.

Isn’t it a bit pointless to give the games away to people who already have them? Why not to people who DON’T have them?

So… to win Killzone 3, you have to already have Killzone 3?

Um, okay.

So the only way to win the Killzone 3 CE, is to already have bought Killzone 3 and play online? I dont see how this appeals to those without having a copy… kinda defeats the purpose.

@whatisdelicious – thought the same thing. Uhh that does make much sense, why you should have to own the game to win the game…

Why give it to people currently playing the game. Evidently they already own it lol

Let me figure this out? You have to already own a copy to win how does that work, what the point of that.

“NO PURCHASE NECESSARY”but you have to purchase a copy of Killzone 3 and a PS3 to win.

Give a contest to people who already have the game and give the free Helghast edition to the one who already owns the game. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

Canada?

+ I_OU_a-Beatn on March 24th, 2011 at 1:48 pm said:

Probably because you can’t buy this edition anyway. It makes sense to give the true fans of the game something that is truly one of a kind, no?

Can’t wait, though. I’ll definitely be playing trying to score myself one of those.


20

+ Foreverlution on March 24th, 2011 at 1:50 pm said:

I agree you have to own it to win it. You can win a limited edition that didnt sell because they removed all the good parts of Killzone 2 (faction balancing anyone?, sniper with a machine gun?) and left us with a game with better graphics but worse gameplay. Can i swap the prize for a pre-order of battlefield 3?


21

+ DlocDaBudSmoka on March 24th, 2011 at 1:51 pm said:

@19. you can buy the helgast edition. i seen a pile of 6 of them at best buy in toledo,Oh.

@13, By ‘No Purchase Necessary’ they mean you don’t have to purchase anything to win it, if you own Killzone3, you don’t have to purchase anything to win Helghast Edition, obviously if you don’t own it you have to purchase Killzone3!

QUESTION: If you are a sub-account are you still eligible? Will the notification be sent to the email associated with the master account?

Its kinda funny how some people around here only complain.
I can see why sometimes (thinking about the crysis 2 mp demo debacle), but for something like this?
come on guys!

On topic:
Anyway, I love Killzone 3! Its the best mp experience I’ve had in a LONG time.
The co-op campaign was also one of the best gaming experiences I’ve had in a LONG time.
Me and my nephew were lovin every second of it. So awesome! I just want to say thank you to Guerilla Games for creating the definitive PS3 shooter. Thank YOU!

And thank you for holding this contest! Hope I win, I know someone who would love to play some KZ3 with me online but doesn’t have the funds :(

I think it is weird to give away a limited edition of a game to people that are already playing the regular edition.

+ iTofuMan on March 24th, 2011 at 2:37 pm said:

i dont understand. seriously wouldnt it be smarter to give it to people who dont own the game? whats the point of giving out a game that people already bought? Plus what if someone who wins had bought the helghast edition? it just seems like a waste to me. i mean seriously what are they going to do with an extra copy of Killzone 3? you devs hate used games so you obviously wouldnt want them to trade it in for cash, or give it to their friends since that means you guys lose money.

I dont know…

It’s cool that you’re rewarding an already faithful fanbase, but wouldn’t it be better to hold a contest that can at least reach a wider audience? Increase the fanbase and have more supporters? Just a thought.

What about the latin fans?

=( i wanna win a killzone 3

+ KidCommando on March 24th, 2011 at 3:40 pm said:

This Helghast Edition can not be bought in stores.

The one sold in stores is the Killzone 3 Helghast Edition

The one that you can win is the Killzone 3 Limited Helghast Edition

There is a difference. Wouldn’t a true fan of Killzone already have the game? – Yes.

Shouldn’t a true fan, that supports the game, get into the lottery for something that can’t be bought? – I think so.

It’s not like they are giving away JUST the game, it is a collectors item and it is limited.

I would be happy to win one!

+ Skater_Ricky on March 24th, 2011 at 3:50 pm said:

PEOPLE PEOPLE

You cant win this copy of “Limited” Helghast Edition anywhere.

The only Copy you can buy is only Helghast Edition which is NOT the Limited Edition

The ONLY Difference is that the Eye’s Glow Orange on the Helghast Head where you can store the game and the Book Art or what every you want in there.

THIS Contest Makes the MOST since to a Killzone Fan.. clearly the Real Fans really like this Contest idea because the True fans already bought there copy and been playing since.

I myself bought the Helghast Edition and would like the Limited Helghast Edition version over what I bought any day.

I think Originally the version they should of put out anyways should of been the Limited Helghast Edition because I myself paid allot for the Helghast Edition which doesn’t come with the glowing eyes.. the Only Logical thing i could think of is that they had a manufacture issue and couldn’t mass produce the Limited Helghast Edition

+ ETroy88 on March 24th, 2011 at 3:51 pm said:

Like the Rules say you dont have to own the game.. you can GameFly it or Rent it and still WIN PEOPLE!

46

+ SuperCoOper777 on March 24th, 2011 at 4:16 pm said:

that give away is redundant. I don’t see why you’d give the game to those who already own it.


47

+ letherclad on March 24th, 2011 at 4:17 pm said:

So… you give away beta codes for Socom 4 then try to keep people from playing it with a contest that runs during the beta, kind of a funny situation when you think about it.

I’ll be playing!


48

+ SuperCoOper777 on March 24th, 2011 at 4:23 pm said:

I don’t agree with the people saying “give it to the true fanbase” because the “true fanbase” already has the game while others who would actually make use of this do not.


49

+ Bcrichmark on March 24th, 2011 at 4:24 pm said:

got to say the same thing why the hellgast would you hold a giveaway that gives people who already own killzone 3 another copy rather than try to bring in more fans to killzone 3 or the killzone franchise by giving copys away to people who dont own them like ME???????????
