269 5

Hello All…

It’s TJ from the Marketing Team, back again for another update on Killzone 2.

A ton of Killzone 2 reviews have posted & the game is already receiving critical acclaim, including 5 Editor’s Choice awards from various media.

IGN Editors' Choice PTOM Editors' Choice GamePro Editors' Choice

GameSpy Editors' Choice GameZone Editors' Choice

If you just can’t wait until Killzone 2 launches on February 27th, starting right now, the single-player demo will be available to all of you who pre-ordered Killzone 2 from GameStop. Those that pre-ordered in-store should be able to use the voucher card, while those that pre-ordered through GameStop.com should receive your redeemable code later today.

We’ve got 22 days until Killzone 2 deploys exclusively on the PS3.

More info to come soon on how to get one of these…

Killzone 2 Helghast Rifle Replica

(No, it’s not a render… it’s a replica.)

Stay tuned.

  • aaaahhhhh!!!!!! awesome! please say its part of a LIMITED collectors edition!

    • This replica is NOT part of a collector\’s edition… we\’re not doing one.

      I can\’t share the details just yet… but keep your eyes on the blog… we\’ll break the news on how you can get your hands on this replica soon…

  • Want that replica. Now, please. That’s so freaking awesome looking.

  • I have 2 demo codes because I preoder two cope of this baby :)
    But I couldn’t wait, so I download it from the UK store.

  • I pre-ordered my copy of KZ 2 from blockbuster so I can’t play the demo.their shouldn’t have to be place were you can play the demo,it should just be free.NOT NICE SONY!

  • gimmie gimmie

  • Will it have Online Demo play? Guess not but it’ll be ok just with single player!

    Please look into adding In-game xmb music and offline co-op!

  • Im at school!!! I wanna play this already damnit!

  • Thank god EU doesn’t do stuff like this, we get the demo without the need for any pre-ordering :)

  • I tried my code and it didn’t work plus my friend called SONY and they said it won’t be redeemable till tomorrow

  • KZ2 FTW!!!

  • so no demo unless it’s preordered? or is that for the early demo?

  • I cant wait to play the demo, it is downloading as we speak. Get it now from the EU store. Just go make an account. easy.

  • I don’t get why they would want to limit the amount of people that want to play the game by locking the NA demo to pre-orders only. From a marketing perspective, that is just dumb. I don’t want to buy the game from Gamestop.

  • You can also get it from the Euro store, so the pre order was pointless for the most part.

  • Thanks for the info

  • hmmm thinks I’ll have to try the EU thing

  • Euro demo is quality. Loving it! :D

  • I can haz replica!?!?

  • This is crazy… Replace the demo for everyone. Killzone 2 is suppose to be a blockbuster and this is just insane. Don’t get me wrong i already pre-ordered.

  • For all of you in the U.S who want to get their hands on the demo without this preorder bs just create a new user, and at the 1st screen change it from united states to united kingdom and then continue to make the fake account and voila free demo, the way they should always be!

  • I live in Canada, we don’t have Gamestops here. Where can I pre-order in Canada to get have access to the demo? Or will the demo be available to everyone like EU?

    Thanks – keep up the great work.

  • the demo is great… all it did was want to make me play more.. cant wait.

  • Also got the Euro demo…pretty amazing..

  • @ 22 –

    The demo will be freely available on the US store on Feb. 26 if you don’t want to preorder from Gamestop.

  • When will the US demo come out for those who didn’t pre-order from GameStop?

    I, for example, pre-ordered from Amazon, and I don’t have a European PSN account.

  • SWEEEEET, I’M DOWNLOADING IT AS I TYPE, THANK YOU GG AND SONY FOR ALL OF YOUR HARD WORK IT IS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!! :D

  • no thank you, don’t like gamestop, i downloaded from UK store instead. I guess gamestop paid that.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9VB7iLqEE0

    PLEASE explain this!

    This is my PS3. That’s my KZ2 Download.

  • the best demo i’ve ever played! great job Sony/Guerrilla! finally some love from EU PSN..

    it is one hello of a sexy game…

  • LISTEN PEOPLE JUST GET ON YOUR PS3 NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE, MAKE A NEW USER, CREATE A NEW PSN ACCOUNT FOR THAT USER USING UNITED KINGDOM AS YOUR REGION (THE 1ST SCREEN WHEN SIGNING UP) THEN GO TO STORE AND GET THE DEMO FOR FREE AND INSTANTLY!!!

  • DLed the EU demo, because the Gamestop demo came up late.

    Can I haz KillZoen Rifel?

  • That sucks no Demo unless you pre order lame… I guess we will get another lame update tonight again.. Great thanks for making PSN no fun!!!!

  • I can’t wait to go home and download my early demo.

    KZ2 has me salivating.

  • Now THAT is sexy… I’m keeping my eyes peeled for more info on that lovely replica.. :)

  • dl-ing as we speak! KIIIIIILLZONEEEEE!!!

  • Wow. The demo is amazing. Shorter than I expected, but hey, it’s a demo. So good.

  • @zombie9: Imagine what it’s like to use XBLA. You can’t download ANY new demos unless you pay for their Gold membership. They’re timed-exclusive to Gold members for about a week or two. Depressing!

    omfg lol anyone who has this perspective just scroll up to #31

  • Also: I hate to be off-topic here, but PSN needs far more avatars.

    Just look at how many redundant avatars are on this thread alone.

    Makes it tough to identify users based on just their avatar now.

  • Im at work, i got the wife to use my access code from the preorder to start downloading the demo, i cant wait to get off of work! just 2 more hours to go! That replica gun looks AWESOME!

    • You know… if you had a PSP, you can access your PS3 via remote play, enter in your voucher code, and begin the download on your PS3 so it would be ready for you by the time you got home. Pretty cool, huh?

  • I WANT THAT GUN!

  • I want that replica. Please? I’ll buy everything that you can ever put on the store.

    Although as that’s the Euro store, i wouldn’t be buying a lot.

  • Downloaded the Killzone 2 demo from the UK psn store…

    The graphics are excellent, the best lighting and effects I’ve seen in a console game, but the textures aren’t as sharp as say, Gears 2 (or an Unreal engine game). The sounds are great.

    I have one major complaint, the controls are LAGGY. WTF is wrong with this company to do this? It makes your guy feel heavier? No it doesn’t, it just makes it harder to aim and makes me want to stick to Bad Company.

  • TJ,

    Can we please have an update on the Best Buy theme codes. Are these live yet? I ask this question because thousands of people on the internet cannot get their codes to work. (ala MGS4).

    Is this a code issue, or that you guys have not put it up on the store yet. (I know its picked and ran by Best Buy, but you guys should have the answer as well.)

    Thanks,

    caliblue15

    P.S. That replica is amazing, I’m staying tuned.

  • I have a demo code that I haven’t used. Does anyone here really need it?

  • Congratulations to GG and SONY, after playing this demo I can see the the previous and reviews weren’t lying, that Graphics are above any other game (including in other consoles), the DTS sound is amazing, the music is very Star Wars-esque and gives a feel of “epicness”
    that suits the game perfectly.
    Thank god for the option to set the control to “Alternate 2” too. I just feel like home playing with this setting.
    Day 1 purchased for has been confirmed!

  • Please tell us how to get the replica i really want it and i get my paycheck today :)
