PlayStation Gamer UK Writes: "Killzone 2's launch in Europe was always going to be strong after it recevied well over a million pre-orders, however it seems post launch day sales are remaining strong."
I can't wait to see how well it did, when are npd released?
again with the 1 million pre-orders. That is not actually CUSTOMER pre-orders but store orders
does it count the sales from online sources like Amazon?
Time to buy a PS3 you said?
Ok, I'll bite. But do you have a link for this little fact you're speaking of? Or any kind of proof for that matter? If not then it's just hot air
how the hell does a retailer store "preoder" games? they just buy shipments. its the customers that "preorder" games. you know, put a reservation on it so they can pick it up on the first day...or preorder online so it comes up to your front door on your first day. so again, how the F*CK do stores preorder games?
Dam you would think they would be playing the 'GOTY' then making up excuses....
looking at the 360s lineup this year, w/e ps3 owners play sure looks like a contender for GOTY. and when you say "excuses", what do you mean? kz2 has an AAA score and theres news about it selling well. youre just another 360 boy in denial.
You would also expect people that dont own the game, not to be in here taking an interest in it, while bashing the players that own it.
And the usual gang of X bots making up multiple accounts
You beat me to it. Snuka, as usual you had nothing constructive to add. Your fellow xbox fan pulls out "facts" without links or proof and you defend it. Typical. Very typical And please, show me an "excuse" since you seem to see them oh so well
It's sold out on both Play.com and Amazon.co.uk - the two main internet retails for games in the UK. So, I think it's fair to say it's doing pretty well.
Usual fanboy arguments, talk sh*t with no evidence. Has anyone EVER heard of stores Pre-ordering a game from a publisher? Ever? Apart from Blaze and his multiple account.
Here's what's wrong with this story: somefanboywithawordpressblog. wordpress.com
gaffyh: And here I go again, trying to convince a self-assured naysayer of how stupid he sounds. Stores have to order games from the distributor. It's a reflection of how much demand the retail channels are expecting, not actual consumer pre-orders. At least, that's what blaze was trying to say...
Talking about Play.com, there is no reference for Battle Fantasia on PS3, did it release in Europe? And concerning the Killzone 2's charts, i think it's a bit early to cry for victory, the game hasn't made a week, we should at least wait one month and see how good sales are worldwide.
Damn right!! =)
When I bought my copy, there was no one in the Gamestop besides some loser asking about buying the Halo Wars collectors edition...I'd say they had about 15 copies of KZ2 behind the counter, granted I did go later in the day.
I just want Sony and Guerrilla to recoup their development costs and make a good profit (they certainly deserve it), so that they can bring us a sequel eventually. I'm loving Killzone 2 and I know I'll eventually be wanting more. Not that I am thinking about that right now with how amazing the current game is. ;)
I am not too conerned with sony or GG making money but I would like to see Killzone 3 or another game from this team. Also continueing this game engine. Because it is really a fun game.
If they sell $1 million or more averaged around $60 profit per game, I think they recoup their losses already.
Makes sense. If they make a killing then there will certainly be a sequel. Kind of like Madden, although the reason why people are buying the same game over and over is beyond me. Also at Skyyo, I love that album.
lol... look for user blazer what a loser bot cryng here....
There is one right below you.
There were 3 full rows at my local future shop, all the ones with the beanies are gone, so just the other ones left to sell. I must say it is an awesome game, the online is good, right on par with COd4.
Well, personally I like it better than COD4. But to each his own.
Wait and see:)
the online is fantastic! i hope many people buy it so that more people can enjoy this masterpiece.
i won't be in the fun for at least a month sense i just bought an awesome CAMERO 83. i guess ill pik up this with infamous wen it's realeased.
don't care about sales... to busy playing the game!
Online is much more addicting than I thought it would be. I honestly thought they would half ass it like what cod4 did. Only thing I wish they would patch in is a easier way to send clan invites and in-game. So you can recruit on the fly.
when we gona see sum numbers?not just ppl gona on about TEH SALES ARE STRONG
Like LBP, it's proven to be an AAA.
Just got back from Wal Mart and its no where to be seen there. Waiting on my Amazon pre-order to ship.
Killzone 2 is one hell of a drug.
I agree, the online is incredibly addictive...it seems like once you've been ranked up, u just have an insatiable desire 2 keep continue getting ranked... - i hope there's some sort of therapy for this sorta thing. I haven't played my PS3 so much in such small time-frame...lol
For scoring this victory over MS and it's fanboy fanatics. Say what you like about sony and it's fanboys but the 360 fanboys are eating their words now, why you say they were trying to destroy sony and momentum on a worldwide scale. When PS3 wasen't out they were bashing it hard when the delay came came they were really digging into it and the best one was when it launched the amount of crap we had to listen to then, but hey it's funny how things change [email protected] suckers. Killzone 2 is out and you just got owned so go play Halo Wars huh!
I don't give a sh1t about sales numbers. If the game is good, I play it. That what gamers do. And Killzone 2 is uber good.
