Sony is planning a big marketing year, in fact what they call “the most aggressive marketing year in its history”.
That is according to Peter Dille from Sony’s senior VP. The marketing begins with Killzone 2, with God of War III also getting the treatment.
Read on for what else he has to say.
With the EU release literally only a couple of days away, a lot of people are wondering just when the Killzone 2 online servers will be powered up; heralding the beginning of our ravenous search for online glory (and badges).

I have to admit, I hadn’t really jumped on the hype train for Killzone 2.
Of course like everyone else I gasped at the now (in)famous video shown at E3 2005, but that gasp soon turned into a sigh when the truth was revealed.
Now that I have the full game in my hands though, I have a new reason for excessive gasping.
Sony have released a press release giving exciting details of the launch of the new Killzone 2 webgame!
This new webgame is part of Sony’s big marketing push towards to popular game and is compatible with Firefox 3 and Internet Explorer 6 & 7.
Game Demos have been part of the industry for as long as we can remember and they offer gamers the chance to try out a game without taking any money from their pockets.
However we ask ourselves, are demos actually bad for the industry and developers?
Just in case you forgot about all the giant blockbuster titles that Sony has in store for us this year, they’ve sent out a reminder. According to a press release sent out by SCEA:
“Kicking off the new line up, KillzoneÂ®2 is set to launch on February 27, 2009 and promises to be the industryâ€™s first major gaming hit for 2009 as well as a key driver for PlayStationÂ®3 (PS3â„¢) hardware sales. Killzone 2 is the third installment of the popular PlayStation-exclusive franchise, and the first of the series to appear on PS3. Delivering a truly immersive experience only possible through PS3â€™s Blu-ray gaming potential, Killzone 2 is already generating wide-spread critical acclaim, earning an impressive Metacritic score of 92.”
In an article entitled “Killzone 2 is Who We Are” over at the official PlayStation site, Guerrilla Games talks everything Killzone, highlighting the fact that the graphical fidelity sought for the multi-player aspect of the game was “very very difficult.” And not without its price.
But will the sacrificed co-op mode be making a comeback via DLC? Read on to find out.
Oh we envy those guys at PS Only, they were lucky enough to get the chance to visit Guerrilla games in Holland. They also asked them about Home support.
They were unable to give any concrete details however they did say Home support is “likely”.
As part of the Â£2 million UK advertising budget for Killzone 2, Threespeech has revealed Sony’s teaser trailer for their campaign.
It’s only 10 seconds long but we can expect a much longer (30sec?) trailer to arrive on our TV screens very soon.
Jeff Rubenstein, Social Media Manager over at the PS Blog, has posted about a cool new way of getting demo codes into the hands of the faithful.
From today, Helghan soldiers can be found running around Home probably wondering why everyone is dancing and not trying to shoot their collective faces off. Approach them for they have codes!
We already discussed what the ‘Killzone 2 effect’ might mean to developers, but what does does it do to and for the gamer?
For a long time now there has been a general feeling across the gaming community, and the majority of the press, that if the PS3 is the most powerful console on the market today, then we have yet to see any proof. Has that now changed?
With the gaming world talking about Killzone 2 and the pre-orders already at a high level, one has to ask how much Killzone 2 can change the way developers see the PS3 – what you might call ‘the Killzone 2 effect’…
With the game getting so much attention, in some part because of its awesome graphics, you could imagine developers must be feeling the pressure to compete.
With all this press with still 3 weeks to go before the game arrives, it’s no wonder Killzone 2 is selling well.
However what is surprising is an interview in the Guardian with David Reeves from SCEE who confirmed that European pre-orders had surpassed 1.1 million.
Confused about the mulitplayer content of the Killzone 2 demo? With all of the Killzone hype and fervour kicking about, there are some questions worth asking. Problem is, do you want to know the answers?
The Killzone 2 hype is really live and kicking with many retailers offering incentives in Europe and abroad to buy the game from them.
Well you can add HMV to that list…
