As February 27th gets closer and closer, GameStop's Killzone 2 Pre-Orders are beginning to pick up. In California a majority of GameStop stores have announced that they will be holding February 27th Midnight Launch Parties.
5 more days until pure bloody FPS BLISS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yay! I'm pretty freakin' happy about this. It's going to be great can't wait to play it.
When i bought SF4 last Wednesday....i asked if they're was going to be a midnight release, well.....they didnt know lol Maybe things changed as of today or something
I hope Sony never again makes a game available to the press so far in advance of release. Why? Because dodging spoilers has proven neigh impossible. The last 2 episodes of ListenUP were just full of KZ2 spoilers. I listened thinking they would give the usual spoiler warning but they didn't. And with so many people on my friends list already having the game it really is starting to make me antsy for it. Preordered mine and can't wait. Ordered surround sound headphones for it. Killzone 2 set to redefine FPSs. Fanboys miss out.
I cant wait to play the amazingness that is K2, but I think I'll jump right to online. Oh yeah, K2 is the second largest mountain in the world I think that might give us some indication to how awesome Killzone 2 is going to be! muahaha I have something else that is rising due to all this excitement..well not really..
Well the A-Holes at my local GameStop keep telling me "There aren't enough pre-orders for a midnight launch" even though I know they're full of #@$%. I told them about the articles like this that I've been reading online and they said "You can't believe everything you read on the internet." I downloaded the demo from the UK store and pre-ordered it from Best Buy who IS having a midnight launch :D
Hell yea son!!! I can freaking wait and the day is so close.
only 5 days and i still haven't got my ps3 yet!! i've just had to shell out more than a few grand cash for a new car :-( and the missus is still not letting me sell the wii, wii fit, family trainer and about 6 games..i ask her why everyday???????? cod4 is getting stale again(no challenge anymore), and battlefields servers are hit and miss, so that can end up frustrating at times! halo and l4d are both super games, but i want a new shooter to play. and 32 player killzone is where i want my new fix to come from!! i cant wait to long. and now you can buy an adaptor so you can use the 360 pad aswell....the wii's gotta go! yeah i'm looking forward to halo wars, but it aint no killzone thats for sure! and shooters are what i play more than anything. enjoy people, ill be there soon!
Screw the midnight launch, I have the Collectors Edition preordered on shopto.net for £33, usually get games a day early and sometimes even 2 days early.
My call to Gamestop: Me: "Are you going to have a midnight release for the game?" Gamestop: "No" Me: "Why?" Gamestop: "Because there isn't enough hype for it." Me: o_0 "What?" Of all the things you could say about KZ2, "it doesn't have enough hype" is not one of them. More advertising yes. Hype, no.
If you were honest with yourself, you would admit that you can't afford a PS3, have never played the demo, and have been praying everyday that KZ2 flops since you will be missing out on one of the best FPS this gen. If I'm being honest with myself, I suppose I must admit that I feel sorry for you.
This site is total Bull $hit and so PS3 biased it makes me sick. To the LOSER above, I do have a PS3 and it is great at ONE thing.......collecting dust. The KZ2 demo was LAME and I will buy the game after it hits $40 bucks in a month.
Keep saving you milk money, little guy. Maybe your mom can up your allowance or you can ask for a PS3 for your birthday/Christmas?
Fantastic news. I expect a few hundred more stores to do midnight launches after the commercials hit.
Yea I went to go pay off the rest of my preorder today and they told me they're having a midnight launch.
Same here Jwatt. When i was preordering on Thursday the clerk said "We're having a midnight release, you should drop by". I think this will be my first midnight launch event.
since i live in LA i wasn't sure if the Gamestop that i pre-ordered would be doing a midnight launch, so looks like i have a call to make tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Max, which gamestop you're going to, I'm in NoHo.
I just pre-ordered on Amazon today. I want to got to the midnight launch if they're having it locally. Guess I'll have to cancel my Amazon order if I decide to.
I live in a small town in Southwest Virginia and even our Gamestop is doing a midnight launch. I'm excited :)
well silverlake area, but i pre-ordered it at the Glendale Galleria. the gamestop there is called "planet X"
ouuuu Glendale? I was born there living in Northridge now! I preordered mine on Amazon with "Release Date" shipping. Hopefully I get it a day early!
What? No midnight launches for Halo Wars?
No only bargain bin giveaways XD
Retard: Bot: But EDGE gave it a 7! :)
That's not the only thing that Rises when i think of getting my Copy of KillZone 2!!! ;-o
So what if some crappy magazine gave it a 7. I have a different opinion about this game, and I am definetely getting this on the first day it comes out.
Whats everyone going to play first? Multiplayer or Campaign? Campaign
For KZ2 its a tough choice but i will probably do campaign. I will go thru campaign so as to give the servers enough time to settle. But if the servers hold up i will be running thru both side by side
I'm playing the Campaign first, that's what I always do. The Campaign will give you plenty of time to get used to using various weapons, so when you step in Multiplayer, you'll be ready to dish out some damage for sure. For Killzone 2, I'm just as interested in the Story as the Multi-player.
Campaign for me since i know servers migt take a nice hit.
Straight to multiplayer. I won't have Friday for Killzone 2 due to a night exam. I need to make sure my friends don't rank way too far from me. @Wolf I have a friend just like that, it's kind of sad, he refuses to buy Killzone 2 because he mainly plays on single player (which he considers too short) and almost never any multiplayer aspect.
and replay campaign for sake of fun. I never touch Multiplayer, just don't like it for some reason, maybe because I'll get owned too easily ;P. Only my bros enjoy Multiplayer aspects of games.
I have a few friends like you, they never touch the online portion of games. Their reason is because there's too many people that play way too much and own everyone with ease. I'm guilty for playing COD4 too much and being one of the crazy people online. But when it comes to something like NHL 09 online team play, I'm one of the teams losing 5-0, even though I consider myself pretty good offline. I still play online NHL though. You might find it different with this game though, you never know.
We're gonna play through the entire Campaign mode, then hop over to Multiplayer the next day.
:D, I would give it a try. But I remember trying to play COD-4 online, and I had just started the game when I was brought down numerous times and in all those tries I only managed to kill one person! Just ONE! That says it all: I suck at online. I usually don't play shooter games, not these types, but Killzone looked exceptional so I thought I'd buy it, plus I tried out the demo and it didn't seem too hard.
the only game that i didn't start playing the campaign was COD 4 and that is because i specifically bought it to usher me into Online Multiplayer.
campaign, cause i have to brush up on my skills
Campaign... then campaign again. I'm rubbish at multiplayer.:(
since being privileged to get into BETA I will prolly be playing both kinda heavy!!! Cant wait...KZ2 got this in the bag! For now @least, until I"m conviced otherwise , that 360 has something EPIC to offer...no pun intended :)
south las vegas i will be there feb 27th 12:01 am and then i will be gone. yes the reason for the midnight release? over 50 pre orders at my store alone!!!
Hey smokingmonkey... check your pm box on one hand... KZ2 baby... cant wait... yezzir..
I have a killer, full HDTV and didn't go Gamestop for the demo. Everybody keeps drooling over the graphics so I found a Gamecrazy store just to get the T-shirt they are giving away. Anyway, if I'm not impressed with the graphics I'll be pissed.
If you're not impressed with the graphics there will be only one explanation. You've gone blind.
You will be. Dude...create a UK account and download the demo. It's much easier.
yes yes yes look for this psn ID because i will own you all
Bot: But EDGE gave it a 7!
On your corpse...under the smoking barrel of my gun. Playa7970 : Born A Gamer - Killowned Feb 27 2009 You have 5 days to make your final arrangements. . I suggest the Samsung 67" LED DLP with full 7.1 Surround Sound. You can have it all delivered by Friday...Don't you deserve to die in HD?
I hope they have one here.
I wasn't going to preorder Killzone 2 just drop by the store and pick up my copy on release day. But after SF4 on Ps3 being sold out everywhere i decided to pre order KZ2 to be on the safe side.
It's supposed to arrive by next Friday. See you guys in-game! :)
Congrats, I preordered mine from Amazon for over a month ago. Can't wait till friday night after my exam. Hope I don't bomb my exam and right helghast all over my exam.
Anybody have a list of stores doing a midnight launch? Doesn't Gamestop usually release a list a few days before launch?
Try calling the local GameStops in your area? That's what I did whenever I went to one of those midnight releases.
I'll be there 12:01 in vegas gamestop store inside fashion show mall.
damn, i used to hit up that mall in Vegas all the time. good times. now i miss Vegas lol have fun with KZ2
Lol, this 1 month after Sony announced that 1.1 MILLION already had pre-ordered Killzone 2. Yeah, it's "starting to pick up" Campaign first here as well ^^
That was 1.1 million in Europe. We haven't heard what the status of the US is.
1.1 million through EU and the UK before February even hit...before the demo came out...and before pretty much any advertising had started... rumors have the total worlwide pre-order list at nearly 3 million...which seems a bit optimistic to me...but you figure just as many people in the US are anticipating this game as Europe most likely...seems reasonable...
Well it doesn't exactly mean pre orders a rising, a lot of other factors could also play into a midnight launch. Managers could also decide to hold launch events IIRC as long as they take care of everything. Regardless Killzone 2 does look pretty cool, from the reviews it really seems like the developers deserve good sales to boot.
If I can get my hands on the game day 1 I'll be playing campaign.
yeah, I went to my local gamestop last time here in Los Angeles at La Brea, I asked them if they are going to have a midnight launch for kz2 and one guy answered me YES with a smile. lol!
Sadly, however, I live in Tennessee and the gamestop I have pre-ordered from is not having a midnight release. *sniff, sniff* Oh well I have to work on Friday anyways so I couldn't stay up that late regardless. I will see you guys online soon though. Godspeed! PSN: Frodo25
5 MORE FREAKING DAYSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS 5 MORE FREAKIN DAYSSSSSSSSSS sorry im havin a gaming orgasim
I tried to pre-order a copy and the game-stump I usually go to said they had stopped taking pre-orders for Killzone 2. I know its weird conspiracy perhaps, but I'll just wait. I mean you get nothing for pre-ordering and the servers will likely crash.
they stop taking preorders when they max out the number the store can receive. Call them once a day and ask if they are taking preorders again. If enough people keep asking for preorders they will put in a special request to get more on launch day.
Feb. 27th :) Play B3yond!
Didn't Gamestop announce a while back they had hit over 1 million pre-orders in their chains alone?
this game seems like it will get the sales it deserves maybe even sell consoles good job gg and sony
I am thinking campaign first. I want to get used to the game. Although, online is not far behind.
