Picking up Your Copy of Killzone 2 Soon? Snap a Pic!

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by

Sr. Social Media Manager

The time is almost upon us – in just a few precious hours, North American gamers will begin picking up and playing their copies of Killzone 2. In order to fully mark this occasion (probably the last time you’ll be outside for a few weeks), we encourage you to take a photo of yourself picking up the game. We know a *lot* of you pre-ordered the game, so we’ve started a collection on the PlayStation.Blog Facebook page. Just upload your pic(s) to the gallery and tag them with “kz2” – you’ll need to ‘Fan’ the page first – and let us know you’ve joined the Helghan invasion!

As a bit of extra incentive we’ll be randomly giving out Killzone 2 Strategy Guides from BradyGames (we’ll select the lucky photogs a week from today).

We took a few Killzone 2 pics around the office today to get things started. So share your experience – and enjoy the game!

Hate to sound like a typical gaming nerd, but that chick is hot.

Do you guys use facebook for everything? I don’t have a facebook account and nothing is going to make me get one.
I’ll be getting K2 and not snapping any pictures.

sounds great but i don’t have a facebook account.

As much as I would love to post a picture of my self holding the game that is taking a precious minute or two away from Killzone and we can’t have that now can we.

Zookey said:

February 26th, 1:16 pm

Oh! Let’s hope the local Play N Trade (where I reserved a bunch of games in a GameStop protest) doesn’t get the KZ2 copy I pre-ordered 3 days late like SF4 hehe! Weird enough, Fallout 3 last year and Prinny this year came on launch day so 2 out of 3 ain’t bad.

Game Slop, don’t waste your money!

No Facebook!

I’m not into Facebook either, so I wouldn’t register.

I won’t be able to pick up my copy until 10 AM PST tomorrow. That sucks!

    That\’s fine, do it then – we\’re not picking winners for a week.

What would be cool was if you asked everyone to use a particular Flickr tag if they don’t want to use Facebook…

    Hmm, maybe next time, but you\’ve got to join that too. FB has more users than Flickr, so we did that.

really can’t wait for this… especially i have friends in europe who are playing since the 20th

Jeigh said:

Hurray for communal experience-sharings! Unfortunately, I will not be joining in on the fun for a number of reasons, one being a moral stance against community-based website fads such as Facebook. Have fun though.

I know Chris is the one in the yellow shirt but who are the other 2?

She needs to hang around the blog more

Isn’t this game already out?

SalMoriarty said:

Some stores like GS and EB forbid photography on the premises. ;_;

To clarify:

The Game Stop is Slop for canceling the midnight release.

KZ2, looks awesome!

I’m not liking this Facebook thing. I rather have everything in one place:


QCVic said:

February 26th, 1:37 pm

Well I still have an active facebook account. So I`ll post a pic when my copy from Amazon comes in

lcmnick said:

February 26th, 1:38 pm

    We\’re still combing through it. The multiple choice stuff is easy, the write ins take *forever*.

    I finally feel bad for my teachers. Grading tests SUCKS, lol.

Violater said:

February 26th, 1:39 pm

For the love of (insert deity of your choice) why wont u guys just allow retailers to sell the game today?????

My GameStop isn’t doing a midnight release :(

I assume that by “randomly” you mean excluding all those delightful Canadians that participate on this US blog due to the fact that the Canadian site is totally neglected.

    Jeff Rubenstein said:

    February 26th, 1:48 pm

    Nope, Canadians included. I wanna see a Maple Leaf in this gallery!

ImBakinBacon said:

February 26th, 1:45 pm

Sounds good. We just click add photo where the other “cool” photos are right?

Maze13 said:

February 26th, 1:45 pm

Hey i got my copy right now and i got a facebook account,the bad thing is that my camera is broken.:(

DuckWC said:

February 26th, 1:46 pm

It could be fun, but no Facebook account and I won’t get one!

    I think I\’ve found the only dozen people in the country *not* on Facebook.

    Oh, and my mom.

Kodros said:

I’ll snap a picture of the UPS guy dropping off a coffin for my PS3 that broke after 1.5 years. Yes I’m bitter.

Demonic_Zhen said:

Will do PSB!

ManaKnight said:

I’m definitely posting my picture after the game tomorrow. ;)

Hey Jeff,

Where’s your picture?

EddyxMob said:

Midnight Launch at Gamestop


12 am my copy

CrystalX3D said:

February 26th, 1:53 pm

I would snap a pic, but Amazon tells me I won’t be getting Killzone2 until march 11, AT THE EARLIEST! WTF!? Don’t do any more preorder deals through Amazon, okay? They sux

gooch-getta said:

February 26th, 1:54 pm

Seriously, like why hype this game up so so so much. It seems like the blog is nothing but psn games and killzone.

Why not updates on the ps3, and other games out there as well as ps3 news. When will sony stop being lazy and fix socom and actually update the firmware so it can have features xbox has?

Maze13 said:

February 26th, 1:55 pm

You know i think i rather start playing the game right now than take pictures.

supersaiyan500 said:

I have 1 question: Will You guys ONLY Do this for a week? Because I only have 50$ and I will need 10 bucks plus the tax. Please tell me if it ain’t for just next week…

    Jeff Rubenstein said:

    February 26th, 2:05 pm

    Sorry, this event is just for this week. You can still upload the photos later, but I wanted to have a bit of an extra bonus for those who preordered/got the game in the first week. We\’ll do the drawing and contact winners next Friday.

Zezzler said:

February 26th, 1:58 pm

KZ2 is a must but for the ps3, i’m just kinda disapointed that there is no Co-op. :(

Hopefully it will come in a patch or DLC or something.

E_12 said:

One of the rare occasions I am happy to live in Germany: I have my copy already since yesterday, and been playing the campaign like mad! Currently I’m on the Train Mission…
Great work in this Game – Gameplay and Graphics are amazing. Looking forward to trying the Online Mode as soon as have finished the Campaign!

Delriach said:

Wish you guys were giving PixelJunk Monsters shirts :(

CitizenInsane27 said:

February 26th, 2:05 pm

I perused your set of pictures on there and left some comments. I would totally enter in the contest or whatever, but my PS3 was one of those fancy pants 60GB launch units that unfortunately, did not have the greatest of Blu-Ray drives :( so it cannot play the masterpiece of shootery that is Killzone 2. Maybe I’ll pick it up this spring after I can hopefully afford to get her fixed. Til then, enjoy the game people!

Pound_lb003 said:

February 26th, 2:10 pm

No offence, but I am only secretly a geek…

Ahh, who am I kidding, I’ll see if I can post a picture.

By the way, being in the UK, I don’t by ANY means expect a strategy guide, but I’ll join in if I can! NeoGAF already has quitw a few pickup photos.

Tr3p1dat10n said:

February 26th, 2:10 pm

So, think many stores will have extra copies? I was unable to preorder but this game is definitely on my WANTWANTWANT list. Good thing I live in a smaller town, I hope.

Draicus said:

February 26th, 2:11 pm

I guess I’ll finally have to succumb to peer pressure and sign up for Facebook. -_-

If we snap the pictures after we get home, do they still count? I might send my wife after my copy so I don’t have to wait until after work to pick it up.

    Jeff Rubenstein said:

    February 26th, 3:29 pm

    Yes, they all count. We want to capture the joy and anticipation of getting to play KZ2!

eghostx80 said:

February 26th, 2:11 pm

as much as i love the idea, im not gonna post in facebook, specially since they changed their TOS…. that was a bad move from them… anyway, can’t wait to pick one up. :)

See you guys online.

Thwip said:

February 26th, 2:12 pm

Going out tonight after work to see if I can find some lesser know “mom and pop” type retailer who will sell me a copy tonight…I’ll have a pic’y on FB as soon as I get it.

PS – Jeff; where is the info on that PSP title you tweeted about?
