Killzone 2 Holds February 6 Euro Date?

Update: Not surprisingly, this has turned out to be misinformation.  Guerilla's Seb Downie clarified quickly on the official PlayStation message boards by saying it will release in Europe on February 27, not February 6.

Original Story:

By now, most all of you know that Killzone 2 holds a February 27 release date. However, some of you have been asking if this applies to all major territories, and although we thought it should, now we're not so sure...

If you check European site NextGamer, they're showing visual proof on the official PlayStation Business to Business site that KZ2 may launch on February 6 in Europe. Although some gamers here in the U.S. may scoff at the idea - ha! Europe never gets anything big first! - we have to remember a few things. Firstly, Guerilla is a European-based studio. Secondly, the beta was available in Europe long before anyone in North America saw an invite. Thirdly and lastly...well, don't you think it's about time Europe received a high-profile title before anyone else? I mean, they've been kicked around for so long; this three-week jump on the rest of the world should be refreshing for them. Well, anyway, neither SCEE or Guerilla have confirmed this 02/06 release date, but we're relatively certain the date is still 02/27 for North American PlayStation 3 owners. It's a hot topic of conversation, though, so perhaps we'll have an official clarification before the week is out. Or, we could just say "February" for everyone and be done with it. Heh.

Just remember, the sooner anyone gets this game, the better. If you want to talk about a new benchmark for shooters and a title that should completely redefine the FPS genre, then you need to talk about Killzone 2.

I really doubt it, but it *would* be a nice way to make up for giving us Resistance 2 over three weeks late.

three weeks too early?!? my gut feeling is that it won't happen... if we're lucky we might get a day or two ahead.

if they are releasing it on the 6th then they should go international to avoid competing with resident evil 5.

I hope the EU brethren do get it early, doesn't seem fair that they should get the short end of the stick all the time.

Thanks world.

It can be annoying as a UK gamer getting short changed all the time on release dates unless it is a world wide release date. I sometimes forget when reading this site that a lot of you on here are from USA like Ben is and when he posts a date for a game I get all eager then realise he means the USA version.

Happy days if it is early :)

i guess this makes up for us not getting socom, which btw has fallen back to feb in europe.... not a clever move sony as everyone will buy killzone, and thereore hamper sales of socom. altho we did get gran turismo 5 prologue a few weeks before u lot across the pond, tho if u do want it early u lot can all import.. like i did with socom, thank god for region free..

Yeah, we deserve it first. Too many games are coming to us late. The most recent one I can recall is SFHDII (UK). I was looking forward to it, but after the delay... meh

Hey. They deserve it. It being produced there. We normally get the benefit here in US.

Have fun. Plus, I'll need a few weeks or to finish up with R2.

What about Australia? Our release dates should be similar to UK (both being PAL territories) so I'm hoping this is good news for Aussies as well, but no doubt we'll get it a month after everyone else as usual...

This is stupid.Being a Eurogamer myself I know what it feels like WorldEndsWithMe said getting 'the short end of the stick all the time.'
But why should the rest of the world have to wait?I dont like waiting for games and i know you guys wouldnt either.Worldwide release is the only way to go in my opinion.

While I don't agree with the comments that they "deserve" it (none of us DESERVE any games), I say "Good for them" (if it's true).
