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!

sweet i already got it pre-ordered, but for some reason the clerk said the game will be available march 6, which confused me so much. i knew for a fact the game releases feb. 27, so i guess it was just a problem with the computer. but either way, cant wait!

I saw the commercial for the first time on Cartoon Network over the weekend. It was beautiful. You can download it from the Playstation Store. It's called Killzone 2 TV Spot or something like that. But, yes, I've officially seen a Killzone 2 commercial. It's about time!

Do you mean to say that despite Sony's largest effort to shaft a great game by not advertising enough, it will succeed anyway? Woah.

Out of all the 360 ads they show on t.v., I've only seen 1 for KZ2 last Sunday when I was watching the Unit.

I can honestly say that I've yet to see a KZ2 commercial. I mean I see the ads and what not online but thats just not enough. I might get bashed for this but I've lost all excitement for this game. The demo to me was very mediocre (than again, I haven't played the beta which im pretty sure destroys the demo). I feel like there's something out of place. I guess that's to be expected after seeing the greatness that GoW3 is coming out to be. This doesn't mean that im not getting the game cause you can bet your silly ass that i'll be the first bastard up there picking up my reserved copy. I know for a fact though that im going to fall in love with it. It always happens. IMO

With all the money Sony is apparently putting in for this ad campaign I was expecting to see KZ2 billboards everywhere, TV ads at every break and a posters on public buses. Not seen anything yet.

I've seen the KZ2 TV ad a few times as I live in the UK, but it's still not enough is it? Especially when every multi-platform game looks like it is only on 360 to non-gamers :(

Oh well, i've preordered so i'm getting my copy of KZ2 on Friday :D

@ Ultima SH: Homecoming isn't very good, rent it! I'm pretty sure that super cool "Super bowl" KZ2 vid was a fan vid. Having to suffer through BS at half time I needed to be KILLZONED!

And all we have on TV is a 30 second commercial that doesn't really show "real" gameplay.

I know it's made with the in-game engine, and it looks amazing. But... I BET that most people just think it's a cut scene.

Lets just say Killzone 2 will sell about.. oh 3 mill in the first week.

If Sony were to have advertised it like they promised, it would of sold about 5+ mil.

(these numbers arent accurate, im just tryin to show how much of a letdown sony is)

Sony UK threw out a figure about a month ago saying they had already sold 1.1 million pre-orders, just in Europe. If that is true, 3 mil in the first week can definitely happen.

I finally saw the KZ2 Bullet commercial twice in the last few days, (once on a Philadelphia channel, & the other on one of the New York stations).

I said to myself that RE5 is the first ps3 game that i'll buy this year and i'm not gonna buy kz2. But I changed my mind, i'm gonna buy this game now. This game will be a great appetizer for RE5.
