Retailers Breaking KZ2 Street Date?
Maybe they're all just thinking, "eh, it's only one day...what difference does it make?"
Evidence has been coming in from all around the Internet that several major retailers in North America have broken the February 27 street date for Killzone 2. Now, if you're a little out of it and aren't quite sure of the day, February 27 is the day after tomorrow, not today. Even so, Target is apparently selling the game at multiple store locations nationwide, as reported by PS3Center. Then we have whispers that some Wal-Mart stores have done the same thing, although we can't verify any of those claims with visual evidence. Essentially, if you absolutely need KZ2 a day sooner, and you've got nothing to do today (the economy may have seen to that), we suggest checking some big chain stores nearby. Just don't bother with GameStop; there's no chance in hell they're going to break the street date. I worked there for a while, and I remember the insanely steep consequences if we did that; if we even sold a single solitary copy an hour before the street date. So just try Target, Wal-Mart, and maybe Best Buy...
You're not doing anything wrong if you buy it today; it's the retailer's fault. Some giant corporation isn't going to slap you with a giant fine and pissed-off reprimand. Oh, and if you want that demo code, we still have about 8 left if you want to sign up for the forums and contribute to our community. Leave a sentence or two explaining why you want to try it, and your e-mail address in this thread.
