KILLZONE 2 Release Date Feb 19, 2009 in Melbourne?

Advanced release date for Harvey Norman?? what the hell??

From what I know, Sony released the dates for Australia and Killzone 2 will only be available here on Feb 26, 2009. However, Harvey Norman (a major retailer in Australia) has the release date as FEB 19, 2009! One full week before the actual official release date by Sony and everyone else for that matters!

Yesterday, I called Harvey Norman's Melbourne store and talked to the games guy and he confirmed it. It will be out on Feb 19, 2009. I even told him that Sony's official date is 26th. But, he still confirmed that nothing has changed, and he did not receive any updates. It will be 19th.

I plan to preorder from Harvey Norman and then, if I do get it on 19th, I will cancel my preorder with JB HiFi (another major retailer).

Can someone call Sony?

Wow i'm from Sydney, Australia and if this is true that would be sweet man. I'm gonna call them in melbourne and find this out myself. Hopefully it's correct. Having killzone2 a whopping 7 days earlier would be a f#cking dream come true.

Are you serious?
No way no way, OMG OMG if its true OMG. Guess i will buy from harvey norman then. I didn't preorder, there always are more than enough copies on JB Hifi or Ebgames.

The Dark Knight5497d ago

I went and pre ordered it already :)

Maybe Sony will sneak Killzone 2 out early everywhere and catch Microsoft off guard. They should have enough copies made in time to release it before the end of the month.

Up there with the top tier in the industry. Love Guerrilla Games - Horizon Burning Shores is simply STUNNING.

1Victor288d ago

Can’t wait for their next franchise

SullysCigar288d ago

Same. They nailed it with Horizon. The trouble is I also want a new Killzone! Can't I just have it all?!

jznrpg288d ago

I’m with you I want Horizon 3 , Killzone and new IPs

badz149288d ago

I have yet to play Burning Shores as I just started Forbidden West (bought at launch, just unwrapped last weekend LOL) and playing on PS5.

man...I still can't believe the graphics especially now I'm playing it on my LG OLED. that graphics and with stable performance backing it up, GG really is the master of their craft!

Vengeance1138288d ago

32.7M sales in the Horizon franchise! With 8.4M coming from Forbidden West alone! Truly a hugely successful game and franchise as a whole. Looking forward to Horizon III

Shane Kim288d ago

That's kind of a huge drop though. It's only been two games.

VersusDMC288d ago

One year after realease HZD sold 7.6 million.


So not a drop off.

Unless you're saying a HFW should have sold as much now as HZD sold in 5 years?

Vengeance1138288d ago

It's been 3 games, this includes Call of the Mountain. Also no, its a great improvement over HZD.

solideagle288d ago

lol you are comparing:

HZD: 28 February 2017 - May 2023 (6 years+)

HFW: 18 February 2022 - May 2023 (1 year+)

We will see if it surpass original number.

Phoenix76288d ago

@shane, 2 full main games, 2 DLC add ons, 1 VR spin off game, oh and a an official LEGO set.
Not too bad for an ip that's only been on market for 6 years
