Killzone 3 Midnight Launch at WALMART

Make sure you get there early since we’re handing out goodies to the first few attendees.

The first 20 people to purchase Killzone 3 will receive:

  • Limited Edition Killzone 3 Poster

Select Walmart stores will also be hosting tournaments where you can win:

  • A copy of Killzone 3

Not sure where there’s a Walmart around you? Here’s a handy-dandy store locator. Contact your local WALMART store to see if they’re participating in the Killzone 3 pre-launch event and what time their event will start.

    Can’t Wait!

  • cool, walmart is a few blocks from here

  • xDarkImagesx

    Sweet my friend works at wally mart, so its a win,,

  • exterminator_123

    LOL IM NEXT TO A WALMART

  • my local gamestop is doing one….the employees said the manager is a sony fanboy. hah

    i’ll be picking up my helghast edition preorder at midnight. guess i’ll be sick on the 22nd

  • Shouldn’t this say 20th or 18th? Because are Wal-Mart is known for putting games out before date.

    They had Playstation Move games four weeks before Move was even out. A lot of mad people were screw over.

  • mopar_mike172

    So ready for Killzone 3, what an awesome series game. We will see if it’s a 10 though.

  • I live close to 4 Walmarts and I’ve called them all, and they know nothing of this tournament. SMH at the Walmart employees.

  • So my wal mart in Fort Dodge, Iowa said they usually do midnight launches for every game but weather or not they do tournaments or this promo with the free game etc. etc. She stated she doesnt know at this time?

    What do you think?

    • David Bull

      Walmart stores are being notified with information on whether or not they are participating throughout the week. I recommend checking back with your Walmart on Thursday just in case they’re getting the info late.

      Sorry!

  • ForgiveMyAim

    The PSMove controls are rather difficult :(

  • Great PR SONY! Nut make shore Walmart makes a big nice about this so the customers knows that this is happening. Some TV spots about this would be great to. I want Killzone 3 to sell gang busters!

    • David Bull

      We want it to sell gang busters too! Tell your friends. :-)

  • Well… now that I think about it, it is breaking news, since the good people on the PlayStation blog keep us updated to the minute. Maybe the stores will know something more close to the time of the tournament.

  • How about just putting the 2 retro maps…oh I dunno…on the disc itself for everyone? What is with this DLC garbage these days, when the PS3 came out one of its big selling points was the mass storage of the blu-ray disc and how “game worlds could be bigger”. Well whats the point when everything is broken into fragments and made to download on to our hard drive? Games are shorter nowadays then when they use to be on 24meg cartridges.

  • Crap, hope I’m not too busy that day… If I’m lucky, this will be the first midnight launch I ever go to cause I’ve honestly never been this interested >:O

    Must be one of the first 20!

  • a KZ3 tournament!!?
    i’ll be there!

  • Wait, what kind of tournament? I also need to save $60 up FAST! But, my local Wally World probably isn’t participating.

  • Soooo looking forward to the game and all.However whats up with the Move controls? There does not seem to be an configuration option. Or even just a layout to show what does what. :(

  • Loving the beta. Alt controls are great at 70%. I normally don’t like console shooters more a HL/CS guy. But I want this. Feels great. Medic is my favorite.

    Is there a Killzone 3 Move bundle? That’s what I really want.

  • Wish I could go but it’s going to be too cold up here in the Northeast.

  • I Hate Wal Mart sorry:)

  • MoneyMaker110

    i’ll have to wake up early for my release day delivery, have fun if you make it there though

  • When will be the dynamic theme be available via Slurpee or is it in one of the two map pack offers in Slurpee Rewards?

  • Voucher for the Retro Map Pack featuring two classic maps redesigned for Killzone 3 for first 20 people???

    You get this for pre-ordering anywhere so why bother going to walmart to fight over it?

  • I live near a Wal-Mart Supercenter, but alas its located in a redneck environment (I would be highly surprised if they host a tournament). Look it up yourselves Toccoa, GA! Also can you be 17 to participate?

  • nice nothing for canadians again sweet

  • mywhitenoise

    WalMart is open 24 hours a day, at least the one near me. So every launch is a midnight launch, haha.

    Still, I’m not stepping one foot into a WalMart.

  • The beta is failing so far… I can’t connect.

  • Skater_Ricky

    I’ll be picking up my helghast edition copy at GameStop hope they have a midnight launch.

    My GameStop never has PlayStation Midnight launches and it upsets me and very bad on there repertation with me.

  • DAMMIT! I want that poster, but I know I would not be one of the 1st twenty people there. Hell, I haven’t even been out the house yet since winter time because of my disability.

  • YES!!!! There few people that have ps3’s where i live! I’m a killzone veteran so easy winnings for :)

  • Wal-Mart is evil.

  • Do you think Best Buy is going to do midnight launches? i already preordered my game from there…

  • Thane_of_Fife

    A lot of my friends that don’t know much about killzone 3 says it sucks and they don’t want to hear anything about it, i tell them the controller issue is removed but still won’t even give the open beta a try, ignorance is taking over these day but i know a lot of people will miss killzone 3 because of killzone 2.

  • I’ll wait in line for the limited edition poster… but I’m not buying K3 from walmart :(

  • will canadian wallmarts get this offer 2?? dont leave us out in the cold again

  • @11 to me it makes it much easier to play

    and I can’t wait to get kz3 and the sharpshooter

  • Would love to, since there are tons of Wal-mart stores around me, but NONE of them are 24-hour stores. None within 50 miles, actually. I am disappoint.

  • ZEROCOOL-DNB

    yeah i’ve pre-ordered and pre-paid for the helghast edition.the only worry i have is the online after all the problems with the public beta. the funny part i was in the private beta never had problems, hope guerrilla fix’s the online connection problems.because i usaully play more online than just the story mode.

  • i am liking the beta

  • theultimatenub

    that is cool but ima stick with gamestop cause i already preordered my helghast edition

  • i wish they had it at gamestop

  • just pre order at gamestop you get the map pack with it and you dont have to survive walmart. i love the beta cant wait for the sharpshooter gun acessory

  • Astroranagun

    what kind of tournament are they going to host? multiplayer tournament? single player demo tournament? or non-game related tournament……

  • dehumanizer_666

    I know for a fact that Gamestop will not be holding a midnight launch for KZ3. :(

  • Already preordered my collector’s edition at Amazon through Home. :D

  • Thrill_Kill

    Will they have the limited edition version of the game with the glowing red eyes? That’s the one I want. And can you get this going with Best Buy also for those of us whom prefer not shopping with Wal Mart??

  • @35

    I think the posters are for the first few people who buy the game. Unless you a friend that works there, and will hook you up.

  • I hate that there isn’t any controller options. R2 should be shoot and L2 should be aim. The game needs a kill cam and I’m sort of color blind so it’s hard to tell who to shot at. The Red and green user names are both dark, try a dark and a light color to make it more distinctive. I hate to say this but the game should more like mw2 or as comfortable/playable/easy to play as mw2. And more weapon choices would be a plus. Fix those things and I might buy killzone 3.

  • I am all for it but, walmart the store killer. no thanks.
