Killzone 2 Earns GameTrailers Diamond Award: 10 Million Views
Psst...come closer. We've got a secret to tell you...now listen close...it's a true-blue "Megaton" announcement: Killzone 2 launches this week. Oh...but it's true.
Anyway, one of the most hyped games in history has already made its distinguished mark on the Internet, and because the visuals are a primary appeal, a site like GameTrailers can really benefit. GameTrailers, the site that gives you great new videos every day (many of which you can find right here at PSXE), which is a division of Viacom's MTV Networks Entertainment Group, has announced that KZ2 has earned the prestigious Diamond Award. (source- Game InfoWire) This award is only given to a game that surpasses 10,000,000 (that's 10 million, people) views on GT.com, and it has only been awarded to one other PlayStation 3 title, and we imagine it's probably Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Said Scott Steinberg, Vice President of Product Marketing at SCEA:
"Killzone 2's sophisticated technology and graphics have attracted fans of the genre regardless of hardware platform, and GameTrailers.com has enabled us to deliver the best quality game play videos possible. We're flattered the GT community has honored SCEA a second time with this esteemed award as we head towards our exclusive launch on PlayStation 3 on February 27, 2009."
As if this game needed any more hype, right? But the fact of the matter is, it's a title that has demanded worldwide attention and that's worthy of praise in and of itself. If you have short-term memory loss and have already forgotten the release date mentioned in the quote above, it's February 27. Got it? Okay, just wanted to make sure!
