Ashley, the friendly automated GameStop operator called today. She informed me that KillZone 2 would be available at the Midnight launch (tonight).
i really wish that my gamecrazy had a midnight launch... im gonna cry since i'm gonna be bored while people on my friends list will be playing this tonight
Same here, I had message when I got home saying I could pick it up at 10 a.m. tomorrow. Its going to be a long night, I think ill just play End War.
as i've said in the past, i don't do midnight launches for anything. but all three GS in my area (one in town, 2 within 25 miles) are having MN launches.
Not only is my local EB not having a midnight launch but there is not a single KZ ad in the place, not a single poster. They dont even have a box in the coming soon section. I asked why and was told "there isn't much interest in that game." The fun part was a minute or so later when he realized the 3 people in line (and the only people in the store) were all there to pre-order KZ2. It will be the last game I purchse from EB.
The midnight launch was left to the disgretion of the store managers. I really don't care either way because I have a copy right now. Hells Yeah!
Man mine isn't having a freaking midnight release :'(
We are having one at my store tonight, still got a few copies left if you're in Montreal. It's the Microplay at 1300 Mount Royal. We are one of the few stores that have midnight launches in all of Quebec.
I know... it sounds like an irrational fanboy rant. But, how do you explain the fact that none of the 3 Gamestops near my house are having midnight launches even though when I spoke to the 3 store managers, each told me that they had in excess of 50 preorders.... HOWEVER, they were doing Halo Wars midnight launches even though they had less than 10 preorders in each store! Plus, the Gamestop website has Halo Wars as its "main" game at the top of the page instead of the much more anticipated Killzone. I hate to say it, but.... How does anyone explain this as anything other than bias or that they are getting paid by MS to hold midnight launches?
Gamestop lady, however the employees in the store were a bunch of d bags. Last time I buy from them, they are extremely biased. They did have some advertising for Killzone in there but they just acted like they didn't want to make a sale. They even were talking about a Halo Wars MN launch, even though they had like no reserves on it.
I live 2 miles from a 24 hour Walmart. No problem. I wouldn't go to GS any way. I usually pick up my games at Best Buy. They have new releases right at the front door. In and out in 2 minutes.
i am sure the 7-11 down my street has the game. there is no rush for greatness.
received the call from GS saying that KIllzone 2 will arrive Feb 27 in the morning = meaning Feb 27 @ 12:00am... i'll be there, get it and play all nightmare long...
this isn't Halo Wars buddy !! It's a real exclusive or a hacked up halo garbage RTS buddy
Exactly what I do. Best buy always has the new releases. Get in and out quickly so I can go home and play the game.
nice metallica reference!
Getting mine from Amazon tomorrow. I don't shop at bot stores.
Gamestop is anti Ps3 games so im anti gamestop for all my platforms.. Plus i was sick of them opening MY game.
I run a microplay in Montreal and we are anti fanboys. We chase them with brooms.
my gamestop isn't doing this, but no matter i just won't come on this site tonight, and i'll pick it up tomorrow after i hit das gym.
OMG killzone 2 is going to suck because it doesn't have a midnight launch. (sarcasm) I don't really care about midnight launches. I never found myself doing that.
This wouldn't happen to be the same gamestop that supposedly has 26 pre-owned copies of KZ2 already, is it?? Just asking
I hope at least one store near me will do it seeing as I get off work at around 11 and have Saturday off. Would made for a great wake up, might not even go to sleep until later that next day. Although if they don't oh well not like one more day won't kill me, at least their open at 10:00 AM :).
Im about to get ready and head out to the city (live in brooklyn). I got the call last night. Also will be open at 10pm hanging out. Wonder how many pre orders are there and if they will make it an event.
I got a phone call yesterday to notify me about it. I will definitely attend.
And all i can say is WOW..... You's will not be disappointed, I would be willing to stand outside for 12hours waiting for this magnificent piece of work..
YES!!!!!! I got the call yesterday. Man, time sure does go by slowly.
In my small town of about 30k, both GameStops are doing midnight launches. I was actually surprised when I got the call.
Or you can just go check out the small shops who have no problem breaking street dates... Managed to pick mine up today on my lunch break... can't wait to get home...
Frankly I was a bit upset that my local wasn't having a midnight launch even though every bloody Halo game gets one, but it was alright after they called me a day early and said pick it up. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yes, its just as awesome as you hope it will be, maybe even more. The topless barmaid at my pub asked me to stick around and shoot some pool when she knocked off (quit work) but I said sorry luv, Killzones awaiting. Well, I didn't actually SAY that, poor girls self esteem would be shattered if she knew I blew her off to kick Helg-arse, (Copyright) instead of drinking with her.
Your a trooper, thats for sure. I have to wait until tomorrow, so what pub was that?
Just trying to fight the good fight Sir. Its the pub near the servo. Do you know it? ;)
I'm getting my tonight I got the call
Theres no midnight launch in my area, but I don't wait outside in the middle of the night for games anyway. I'll pick it up tommorrow like most gamers.

This will honestly be my first Midnight launch I'll probably be up playing tonight and crash at work tomorrow.. LOL!!! mid night launches for the win!!! now to chech my balance... see those lucky ones who gets the midnight launch for KZ2 tonight
I found out that Gamestop changed its mind. Oh well.
same here they called me today those idiotos.
Screw gamestop they cancelled my 12am fun im going to walmart confirmed they have it in stock and ready for my pick up.
Sucks that gamestop would go back on their words like that of saying they would have the launch then quickly reel it back. I also must admit that you are lucky, as I have checked online with the wal-mart near me. They don't seem to have it in stores, but it seems it is available for shipping at least.
GS has the midnight release. Am getting. Stoked.
got mine 2 hours ago from gamestop and it ROCKSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
Personally called gamestop, no midnight release(alright). Went to walmart and "can't find any copies", went to another walmart, same thing AGain. Called 3 other walmarts...no copies!! LOL what luck :(
