Remember back in 2005 when Sony first showed "Killzone 2?" I do. I remember being blown completely away by the footage. That is, of course, until then SCE Europe's Vice President of Development, Phil Harrison, revealed that it was "running off video" which was "done to PS3 spec."
Ugh. Yeah, most people thought that the demo was real-time though, and that it was representative of what to expect from the final game. Well nearly four years later, we're about to find out for sure just how close it comes to that glorious, probably prerendered footage.
"Killzone 2" launches tonight at midnight, if you're lucky that is. According to one of the guys at PlayStation Lifestyle, he got an automated call from his local GameStop stating that his preordered copy would be ready to pick up tonight at midnight.
There is no national "Killzone 2" launch event, but if you're interested in getting the game ASAP, you might want to call your local GameStop and see if you can pick up your copy at midnight. Better hurry!
