"Sony just informed us that the sale of Killzone 2 (included in the kits of the PS3) in Poland since the launch has exceeded 30 thousand units."
I'm not sure if everybody has the same thing going on, but the NA version of the game has every territory's language available on the disc.
expect kz2 to sell around 1.5m at launch in poland there are around 70k -100k ps3s so definitely an awesome launch
so this goes to show how big kz2 is in europe
It also shows how small Halo 3 is
Is that good or bad?
This is good. At least, it's outsold all other PS3 games in Poland already. So that seems good to me.
I think that is the highest number for any ps3 game at launch
dude poland isnt america or japan, or britain even, its gaming community is smaller, thus this number is high.
Before I say if this is AMAZING or not, how many PS3 owners are there in Poland?
It can't be that much, my guess would be 100-200K
basically poland is a small country where ps3 is highly priced but eventually ps3 will do ps2 numbers there as well
it is hard to work out because Poland has all around board to many countries, therefore many people travel cross for cheaper stuff. There are might be lot of PS3 system import from Germany for cheaper price. But 30K is very good for first day.
Poland is not a small country. It has a population of 38 million. In comparison, Canada has 34 million people.
Im from Poland, what the government does to people is insane =/.. Government is corrupted, they rather take all the money for themselves instead of making the country move forward.. about 80% of Polands gamers play on PCs.. counter strike and other MMO games.. There are about 70k PS3s sold in Poland so 50k of KZ2 copies is amazing..
"basically poland is a small country..." Poland is not a small country. It has a has a greater population than Algeria, Canada, Morocco, Uganda, Iraq, Nepal, Malaysia and Ireland. In total it has 0.57% of the worlds population and has the 33rd highest population in the world. It also covers 0.21% of the worlds land and is 69th largest country ahead of Italy, United Kingdom, Greece, North Korea and New Zealand.
I expect the game to do 1.5m in europe at launch
halo 3 sold 4000 units at launch in Poland so u can imagine how big kz2 is in europe/pal
Damn HDDVD18 you need to calm down man jus chill we get it killzone 2 is sellin well jus relax and actually enjoy the game
I am actually going to agree with 360 man, enjoy the game you lucky bastard. I have to wait until end of march since my PS3 is at my cousin.
why are u posting here oh wait ur halo wars, race pro and even star ocean 4 all bombed sucks to be you why post here
You do realize that you are arguing with nasin right? His mental issues are going to get you all confused, just stop trying with this kid.
Most of the Poles are here in the Uk and many of the ones i work with hav said that they are goin to buy Killzone 2 Polands a ghost town so 30K is a big deal i guess most of the women must hav bought it lol
poland has around 70k ps3 owners so a 50% attach rate in 2 days this is i believe the most sold ps3 game at launch
i am polish, just LoL for your stupid post!
these are official numbers from SONY themselves stop spamming the reports section
great new for sony
Ok, it goes like this - first Killzone was in Poland one of best selling games on PS2. It sold around 45k. So I think that KZ2 will top that :]. And how many PS3 are in Poland? In October Sony sold more than 50k PS3. Now it's probably something about 60 - 70k. In Poland still PC are more popular as gaming machines, but it's starting to change.
30k out of 70k owenrs and just 2 day sales so eventually KZ2 will do 100k lifetime there
@nasim / hadvdd 100k when base is 70k? Those who wanted kz2 there bought it already. It might go 50k max lifetime with even 200k max install base in ps3 lifetime there. They are poor nation and cannot afford expensive paper weight like ps3.
you know you are arguing with nasim.....you should also realize his mental illness. He doesn't even comprehend what you write man.
Has their been any official figures released?
Not yet, but we know there were 1.2 million units pre-orders in Europe alone, so this doesnt include the rest of the world or store sales. Basically its gunna sell huge.
It's possible but Sony needs to cut price. Xbox 360 is very cheap in adition to PS3. But KZ2 is sold in atractive price, and in many promotions - buy game and get free Black Hawk Dawn BD movie, or any Plantium game for 1 zloty (about $0,3). And also they give free KZ T-shirts :D.
Good new but why has Sony only revealed the figures for Poland. Seems like an odd choice.
I think it depends from SCE in every country. And Killzone is well known IP in Poland. Even Guerrilla are aware of this fact.
Plus, the size of the country makes it easier to get data faster. You'd be able to know the exact number of stores that received the game and how many copies were sent to each store with a greater degree of accuracy and speed than say, getting those same figures in Germany. Also, considering the entire install base in the country is at or around 70K, selling 30K is something Sony would brag about--especially since game prices are ridiculous there. Simply put, it shows that people WANT this game despite the price. It's just good PR.
Because Poland are well known in the Killzone community to have supported the first Killzone heavily.
So 30K on first day is really good.
Great news for Sony and Gurilla. Might be off-topic but Poland sure does have some hot women hehe.
U can say that again. I used to date a polish girl and, damn, she was gorgeous.
I paid $100 U.S Dollars for mine
Too bad all sony exclusives have to be bundled to reach better sales :(
Gran Turismo will outsell most games like always.....
I'm pretty sure that the people who bought the bundles wanted both the game and the console. Otherwise they could have just bought the game by itself or the console by itself. :D Ps: Owned
Exactly how many bundles did MS put out just this past Christmas alone.
^^^ Or bundling Halo Wars as part of the "Best of Halo" pack--or whatever they are calling it--with Halo 3.
There're 70k consoles in Poland and now in two days they sold 30k more??? That's pretty amazing. And stop nagging about the price cut - ps3 is a quality device with loads of fantastic games so you get what you pay for.
It's about 60-70k. And not 30k PS3, but 30k Killzone 2 (games and KZ2 bundles). I know that it is quality device, but many people prefer to pay less for 360. Sony should be happy that many people here still think like this - video gaming console? PlayStation.
HDDVD18 lol POLAND is small country? i am polish and i can tell you that polish population is around 38 millions. when it comes to ps3 install base there are around 90k consoles sold in POLAND, so 30k games sold in two days is really great result!
we are going to pst the sales of every country of the world?. Tomorrow: Killzone 2 sold 23k in Uruguay..wow!!
not that your wrong or anything, but 23k in Uruguay would be an incredible result considering the PS3 hasn't officially launched yet in South America (it's launching this year)
that does have an install base of 70k PS3's sells 30K more PS3 in bundles with Killzone 2,in just 2 days , that's 15K PS3'S/K2 a day.. It is obvious that Killzone 2 is a system seller.
:D Ah man im so proud of Killzone 2 yano? it feels like a huge effort of not only sony and GG but of all the supporters, the ones who knew it could succeed and succeed it has, what is it? 91% on Metacritic, 1.1 Million pre-orders in EU alone (i am expecting over 2 Million day one sales) and it well lived up to the E3 05 Trailer, graphicly that is The gameplay is amazing, just amazing i have never enjoyed an FPS so much, i didnt think i could say that after experiencing COD4 and the story had me truely hooked :) i finished it today Online is amazing, all in all this is a land mark title for me, the game they said couldnt do it Just did it.
Yes, so you might as well stay away for a few days if you don't like it. After all, this is the PS3 section and people are discussing sales of a PS3 game.
Many of my friends on PSN said that Killzone 2 multiplayer sucks.. well the controls and aiming is very different from COD4. People got use to those COD4 weapons with low recoil and easy aiming, so when they play KZ2 its too hard for them. You need to get use to the game.. Personally its amazing for me, no FPS loss during the game.
making everyone think HE'S the reasonable talking one. You f!cking queer I hate you. Preach all you want HDDVD18 piss off those 360 fanboys.
The Witcher is still the best selling game in Poland. Nice try by GG though.
Killzone 2 is simply the best FPS to date. Of course it's selling well.
