An unlikely rumour but a rumour all the same. Is this a type from Gamestop or the real EU release date?
Since when as there been a GameStop in the UK?
"by a gamestope called E-Plaza (The Netherlands)." EU. I'll cross my fingers but I'm doubtful.
@Fishy Fingers Fair enough, i guess that summary is a bit misleading
Ah yeah, I didnt see that, it's not taken from the users post. Hopefully this post gets changed by the contributor.
Isn't that around the time the demo comes out... there might be a some confusion if not it would be nice for Euro peeps.
There are GameStops in the UK. One in Birmingham I think. But there are a whole chain of them in Ireland, North and South.
Since when has Gamestop been right?
never seen Gamestop in the UK. only GAME and Gamestation
The Netherlands != UK, BTW.
Err no. Holland (the neverlands) and the UK are to seperate countries. How you can say they are the same is beyond me.
Gets down on my knees and start praying............ Plssssssss let this be true.
that GameStop is EB Games in PAL regions.
It's not. GameStop and Electronics Boutique are separate. GAME is the biggest retailer over here, they bought out EB and rebranded them all GAME, then GameStop arrived on the scene. EB, essentially, doesn't exist any more.
PirateThom Is that just in the UK because in Canada we still have EBgames and I thought that was owned buy Gamestop? Anyways I just pre-ordered this game (Finally went and got a PS3) and the guy @ EBgames told me that this game was going to be release on Feb 1st I know this is wrong and told him that allot of internet sites said Feb 27th he told me "I'm going with what my computer says".
that guy is an idiot. Gamestop (and EB also, i think they're owned by the same person) employees should know not to trust the date on the SKU as the release date because most of the time they are only either speculated dates, or shipping dates. It is only an official release date if it says "SD Day/Month."
@apena89 How he he an idiot? In the UK EB got brought out by GAME Group PLC (about 7years ago) and all the EB stores became GAME stores. I suspect you think that we are talking about the US
I thought us Americans get everything first...jk Europe always gets shafted I hope you guys get it first its only fair.
I suspect he's talking about NA because he says "in canada we". So if gamestop/eb games are the same in Canada as they are in the U.S. then what I stated is true.
@apena89 I see whats happening here, my mistake Cereal was refering to Pirate Tom and thats who i thought you were calling an idiot about his comment on EB in the UK since i only read the first part of Cereal's comment. When in actual fact your refering to the bloke in the second part of Cereals post. have a bubble for my mistake
it's cool. thanks. =]
Hey, sorry to ask, but are we that low here now that we don't know what "!=" means ? I'm just asking, because I feel the urge to explain this a little bit here.
europe u lucky bastards
If not for them we likely won't have had Killzone II in this form that we see now. Their support of KZ1 made this possible. Gosh, scares me to think how NA editorial reviewers could have so easily robbed the gaming community of this master piece. ... I wonder how many other incredible games we could be gotten as sequels to first showings of some games that were dogged to hell by NA reviewers. Uhmmm..
Hard to believe for such a high profile game.

if true thats justs 4 weeks away! i cant wait!
lol, funny to see our (nextgamer.nl) Pic, we recoverd it on the Official PlayStation Business to Business site of Sony. It was saying 6th February. (Now it says only February :S) http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... The point now is that the Dutch retailer E-Plaza, have a card (you see on this news) that it also says 6th February. Let's hope people, this game is awesome. I cant wait anymore.
I'd hope so, you Europeans always get jipped. You deserve something first for a change. :P
My sentiments exactly.
eh... am I missing something? Its not sony's fault nor is it the US's that the European countries make publishers jump through hoop after hoop just to get their games in stores. People are blaming the wrong group when they say its sony's fault. look to the governments. That being said, if Europe gets it almost a month ahead of the U.S. Sony should be ready to ship to US retailers by the 20th of January. If they hold out till the 28th of Febuary the copies are just sitting in warehouses. There is no way in he!! they finished the PAL version of this game first along with all of the localization BEFORE the NTSC version. That's not how sony rolls.
Heh, can you believe...in miracles?
forum post? dates from "some retail store" hardly news...
Isn't this site r4gamers.com (Rumors 4 Gamers)?
Lol if thats true, that means that we will get Killzone 2 before Socom: Confrontation lol
If only it was true... Even if we said that Europe would have Killzone 2 first. http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News...
I have a Eplaza store near me. Behind the counter there was a TV running with adds from Killzone 2 on it, release date showed 06-02-09. When I asked him what the *$%#& that was about, he told me that was the date he recieved from Sony. So to come to conclusion, Sony DID plan to release it on the 6th of february. If that however is still the case, I don't know but I'm praying. To be fair, this game is being made in Holland, it would be sexy if we got it first, I would be one hell of a proud dutchman lol >.>
since when was a forum a reliable source of news?
The forum isn't but the Website for Sony Benelux is faily reliable
I work for HMV and it's on our systems as 06/02/09 also, here's hoping.
Well my one of my pre-orders is with HMV so i hope your right. Edit - Just checked the website and it states the 6th http://hmv.com/hmvweb/simpl... however all the other UK sites list it as the 27th
should have a worldwide release like mgs.... coz everything is going well with kill zone 2 .... so why dont we hav a world wide release....
All web shops I have seen says it's coming 27th feb. But maybe they are pushing it out sooner in Europe? We can hope...
Its about time Europe got something first rather than the U.S, don't think we will be getting it this early though but hey fingers crossed.
