Killzone 2 Tops 1 Million Pre-Orders, Demo On EU PSN
You know, even though we're gigantic fans of Killzone 2, we're getting a little tired of seeing a trillion headlines every day. You readers should be thankful; we purposely limit the number of KZ2 stories we do and try to keep things diverse. If we reported on all the KZ2-related news out there, we'd have to change our name to KillzoneExtreme.
Anyway, two pieces of information that really are important: first, the playable demo has apparently hit the European PlayStation Store. It weighs in at just over 1.2 gigs (about 1200MBs, for the technically deficient), and it's guaranteed to get you salivating for the final product. Second, it appears that pre-orders have already topped the one million mark; David Reeves apparently mentioned the "1.1 million pre-orders" for Killzone 2 in that Guardian interview, although we didn't see it. It's not a surprising number, though, considering everyone's anticipation of the FPS masterpiece. Besides, when GameStop runs a promotion that allows you to sample the game simply by pre-ordering it - they were handing out voucher codes for the playable demo - that's bound to ramp up this particular statistic. We thought that 1.1 million number was worldwide, but apparently, it comes only from European pre-orders. Just...wow.
Killzone 2 launches on February 27 in North America and from what we've heard, February 25 in Europe. We can pretty much guarantee you a rockin' good time if you purchase this one, and if you opt to pass, you're missing out on one of the finest gaming experiences ever. Can't make it any plainer than that.
