Gamestop pre-orders rising for Killzone 2, Brings Midnight Launch

As February 27th gets closer and closer, GameStop’s Killzone 2 Pre-Orders are beginning to pick up. In California a majority of GameStop stores have announced that they will be holding February 27th Midnight Launch Parties.

About one month ago a majority of GameStops had announced no plans for midnight launch parties due to low pre-orders. It appears as if all the Killzone 2 hype is finally translating into strong numbers.
This is a good sign because at first GameStop wasn’t gonna do a midnight launch for the game, which to me was crazy. But now the the demand is up for the game it seems that its happening. I know i’ll def have it Midnight(PST) on Friday!!

    Regrettably, I hope it doesn’t come through the mail box on Thursday as usual, due to my Finance exam on the ensuing day…
    Let’s hope the online holds up, because that’s where I’ll be at all weekend baby!

    I’m just glad EU get the game the same day as US does.

    Seems to be the most pre-ordered PS3 game where I buy my games here in Sweden as well. ^^

    @ hOoDnErD

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m psyched for Killzone!

    But in your honest opinion, don’t you think that the midnight launch they’re giving is more for Halo Wars, and it just so happens that Killzone 2 is releasing aswell? I’m not saying that Killzone’s doing bad numbers, it’s just that (let’s face it) 360 kills the PS3 in terms of numbers.

    What do you think?

    No, I feel that the game is getting what it deserves you know. Its getting the pre orders so its getting the midnight launch…thats how it works!!! i mean Halo Wars is coo but i don’t it deserves a midnight launch. The only reason it would get one is off of name sake alone. RTS’s aren’t big sellers on consoles…

    @ bigpapa1274

    yeah, i know i’m stating the obvious. that’s the point. more xboxs = more preorders for halo. Therefore, I THOUGHT the midnight launch party (could be) for halo.

    Also, I’m no 360 fanboy, I don’t own a 360 I have a PS3. and halo wars looks shit. and killzone WILL be awesome.

    @ hOoDnErD

    Whoa! I’m definitly not saying that halo wars deserves the launch party. I honestly think that killzone (a beautiful game in many ways) deserves the launch.

    It’s only that because of the ‘halo’ name, people will buy it. So I’m just assuming that more people have preordered it than killzone. (obviously, i don’t know that’s true for a fact, i’m just guessing cause thats the way it usually is.)

    &
    Just for the record, I didn’t know that Killzone and halo had different release dates in the US. They are releasing on the same date here in the UK. (Thanks Davis)

    in retrospect my first comment did seem a bit 360-fanboyish. But i can assure you, I’m not.
