    So lets say… you get a Helghast Edition that doesn’t have the Acton Figure in it… what would say… a retailer tell a customer?

  • i didn’t know Helgast were brits

  • Rey is that the same dynamic theme as the one on slurpee site?

    • No, it’s a dynamic theme exclusively created for the Helghast Edition.

  • I reaaaaalllly wish I had won one of the Limited Helghast Editions from the beta. I just couldn’t play much because there were always errors with it.

    Anyway, I pre-ordered my (regular) Helghast Edition a while back. I can’t wait until Tuesday! It looks great guys! I think I may end up getting all of these SCE Colletor’s Editions this year for the PS3. They all seem so good. I already got the LBP2 CE, the GT 5 CE (although that was last year), and the DCUO CE. Then next week my Killzone 3 Helghast, and I’m definitely getting the inFAMOUS 2 Hero Edition.

    Well, you guys will leave me extra broke, but I’m sure it will be worth it!

  • I WANT!

  • Preordered. Looks awesomeeeeeee. Thank God for the lack of Valor trophies though, they were a pain. I mean yes, fun too, but once is more than enough.

  • bluefire132

    So, there is no way of getting an actually Helghast helmet? (that you can wear)

  • KazeEternal

    Um I though tthe helghast edition also came with the Unlock Points on it’s voucher, was this incorrect?

    • The Super Voucher includes:

      Killzone 3 soundtrack
      PS3 dynamic theme
      Retro Pack: Reclaimed Territory
      Double XP for the first 24 hours of multiplayer gameplay
      Full access to all weapons and abilities for the first 24 hours of multiplayer gameplay
      Bonus video content giving you a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Killzone 3

      There aren’t any unlock points on the Super Voucher but with so much content, you’ll rack up those points in no time!

  • Only 129.99 American credits!? SOLD!

    Besides, I need this helmet to strike fear into the Spartan helmet that I have.

  • XxNo0b_H8rxX

    @8 it’s correct. it’s inside the game case. but who cares about some voucher? This was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

  • DaRkS1LeNc3

    already preordered, and i plan on getting the infamous2 hero edition now that it was announced… i only want the backpack. the other stuff is a bonus. haha.

    So when is the SOCOM 4 “NAVY SEAL edition” going to be announced? (if theres a SOCOM4 collectors edition, im probably going to get that too…)

  • I think i am gonna join the helgast now, killzone 4 should have 2 campaigns, one as isa and the other as Helgast.

  • Great video!
    My Helghast edition has been pre-ordered since the very second I could.
    Can’t wait!

      Awesome! That’s why we produce these video! Give you a “unique” look.

  • STEREOSQUIRREL9

    KillZone3, Duke Nukem, and RAGE are top3 games I am gettin overall!

    Why becuase- example: infamous 2, we dont know if they added any new features/gameplay improvements, it might be like Infamous1, but renamed…..Racing games are almost done, but racing games get old fast……shooters like black ops- I have had enough of black ops and call of duty games, COD games are the same, there just not that fun anymore!!!! Fighting games get old faster thn any other genre game there is!

  • lolwtf did I just watch? Good video guys!

  • XxNo0b_H8rxX

    @13… UNCHARTED 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Stoffinator

    Will there be Killzone 3 dynamic themes for sale on PSN?

    • Yes, there will be. But the dynamic theme on the Super Voucher is exclusive to the Helghast Edition.

  • XxNo0b_H8rxX

    btw… would I be able to fit Killzone 2 and 3 inside the helmet instead of the artbook?

  • Boss_Tycoon_

    Finally! I’ve been waiting to see that Helmet for months.

  • Revolutionary

    That Helghast has got a bit of a belly there when he pulls out the helmet. ;) Take it easy on the Helghan Fried Chicken!

  • I just laughed really hard!!! nicely put together guys :)

      Next time, make sure you’re drinking a cup of milk on your 100th view.

  • My question is the…

    *Double XP for the first 24 hours of multiplayer gameplay
    *Full access to all weapons and abilities during the first 24 hours of multiplayer gameplay

    Is that only for those who buy the Killzone 3 Helghast Edition or is that for everyone who buys Killzone 3?

  • Who is the actor , is funny

    • Jeff Rubenstein
      Jeff Rubenstein

      Sid Shuman was the David Prowse to my James Earl Jones. Does that make sense?

  • Destined_Chaos

    The helghast edition is absolutely glorious!

  • It’s a ps3 with a game. Big deal. We really need a video for this? I could understand if it was a custom ps3, yet it’s a basic plain slim.

  • ForgiveMyAim

    This guy is a disgrace to Helghan.

  • I wish.. it’s just too much for the price..

  • ForgiveMyAim

    Will where there be anyway for me to get the retro maps If I buy the normal edition?

    • Yes, those will be available for purchase on the PlayStation Store the day of launch.

  • YouAreMistaken

    Thanks for the video this will be my 1st CE i ever bought well worth it.

  • Did I just see his belly sticking out? :/

  • I didn’t realize Jeff was a Helghan native. :D Great video, I especially enjoyed the classic television shopping network music. Can’t wait until Tuesday!

  • why does it say “Killzone 3 on Blu-ray Disc” ? what else would it be on, a freakin DVD? smh

  • the first 24 hours… is that starting at 1201 am on tuesday and ending at 1159, or is it 24 hours from when i enter the code?

  • Seeing_Red_Again

    Will we ever see Killzone 1 get the “PS2 HD Classics” treatment? Maybe release it on the PlayStation Store since its a single game?

  • VectorRaven

    Beautiful. If only the marksman really cloaked. Ahh one can dream

  • Oh man, I wish I could have gotten that version, but I simply don’t have enough money for it at the moment. Oh well, I’ll be fine with the regular version. But I’ll be sure to pick up the special edition for the next game you guys make. Promise.

    Killzone 3 is only 4 days away! (3, if you don’t count today)

  • Just pre-ordered today — Amazon gave me the Retro Map Pack for free, along with $20 to go towards my next purchase, which will, undoubtedly, be Yakuza 4.

  • Do we have a price for how much those retro maps will cost on the Playstation store?

  • Excellent VO work Jeff…I almost didn’t recognize it was you…even with Sid in the costume.

  • :) What is happening to the other 800 or so Limited Helgast Editions? You have only given away 120 or so with the two sweepstakes on the Beta. :) I want a lighted Helgast helmet!

  • CerealxKiller13

    kinda want this helghast edition, but I’ll still be happy with the game though which I’ve preordered. Can’t wait, 4 days away!

  • HebrewHammer

    BEST… UNBOXING… EVER!!!
    That sounds like Jeff under there lol
    Anywho, I already got mine reserved! Cant wait for Tuesday, but yikes, what an expensive day! KZ3 for 129.99, The Playstation Move Sharpshooter for 39.99 and BulletStorm for 59.99! OMG! Damn you PlayStation!

  • KiLLaNoiZ_P

    glad i pre-order this awhile back when i first heard of it..cant wait to play this and unbox my helghast edition =) oh and cant forget my all time favorite shooter reason why i started online multiplayer socom =)

  • KiLLaNoiZ_P

    quick question do the eyes light up at all or glow in the dark??

  • KazeEternal

    @ David Bull
    I’m sure I’ll unlock things faster in 24 hours time, but 3 unlock points is better than none. That’s a 3rd tier weapon on a job I get to unlock on any job. I plan on unlocking everything and playing across every job. One of the things I miss about Killzone 2, it forced you to play all the jobs to unlock everything. Now it seems like I’m locked into master a single job for an extended period of time until I rank high enough to get everything.

    Are the Dynamic Theme and other items on separate codes. I’d like to use the Dynamic Theme and Soundtracks ASAP, but would like to hold off on the Multiplayer till the end of the week.

    • You can skip around with different career classes and still gain XP for your PSN ID. It’s not locked into one career.

      As for the Super Voucher, all items are attached into one voucher code to make it easier to redeem. Can you imagine typing all those codes for each item on the voucher?! O_o

  • Dear Rey Gutierrez,

    It is possible to have your pal Helghast at the Pulse Edition of February 22? *Note that “Sackboy” appeared in Pulse on LBP2 release.

    Thank you for your time,
    Kevin Chang

  • ThreeLeggedFreak

    How about you patch in online co op?

  • PhantomOfPanton

    Awesome! I want a helghast helmet I can wear though! Game looks great either way, CE is a must have for Killzone fans :D

  • Jimmy_Cosmos

    coulda done without the helgan pasty belly shot but whatever..

  • FUNNY Video, but he didn’t sound very scary tho :D
