Pre-Order Killzone 2 At Best Buy, Get Free Exclusive Theme

You're bound to see a whole lot more of these in the near future, just because Killzone 2 will most certainly inspire retailers to take advantage of its destined blockbuster status.

You've probably already seen it by now - the e-mail should've gone out to all PlayStation Network users - but Sony and Best Buy have teamed up to offer a little bonus to those of you who pre-order Killzone 2 at Best Buy. It's this picture right here; an exclusive (and free) PS3 Theme that won't be available to anyone else. It's not exactly an earth-shattering incentive, but it's interesting to see retailers other than GameStop toss out a pre-order goodie every once in a while. Of course, GameStop will probably have some sort of pre-order promotion themselves, and we're just waiting around to see what it is...unfortunately, it can't be a beta code, like they did with Resistance 2, but they can think of something. At this point, what PS3 owner isn't at least mildly interested in pre-purchasing Killzone 2? All it takes is $5 and very little effort on your part, so you should always pay attention to extra incentives. In this case, while there's bound to be KZ2 Themes available for download, this particular Theme will be restricted to Best Buy pre-orders.

And by the way, despite any rumors you may have heard to the contrary, Killzone 2 is still scheduled to launch on February 28. Not later, not earlier, 02/28/09. Guerilla and Sony have been pretty clear on that, so don't let any Internet hearsay convince you otherwise.

Lol that deal interests me more, but I unfortunately don't have a physical street address; only an EMS number. And apparently Amazon also doesn't ship to P.O. Boxes. Oh well =\

There's also a KZ2 background that changes the look of your XMB icons which can be downloaded for free from the PS store. I've had it for a while now and it looks great.

I saw this pre-order sitting on the shelf of a local Best Buy a few weeks ago while shopping for others during Christmas. I couldn't pass it up for $5.

Can wait til the end of February.

My gf already pre-ordered with Gamestop for me as a Christmas gift.

Then I broke up with her the day after Christmas.

I hope she doesn't cancel my pre-order.

Just hoping I don't bring down the wrath of the credible Gamestop employees who post here too.
