You know, even though we're gigantic fans of Killzone 2 , we're getting a little tired of seeing a trillion headlines every day. You readers should be thankful; we purposely limit the number of KZ2 stories we do and try to keep things diverse. If we reported on all the KZ2-related news out there, we'd have to change our name to KillzoneExtreme.

Any way, two pieces of information that really are important: first, the playable demo has apparently hit the European PlayStation Store. It weighs in at just over 1.2 gigs (about 1200MBs, for the technically deficient), and it's guaranteed to get you salivating for the final product. Second, it appears that pre-orders have already topped the one million mark; David Reeves apparently mentioned the "1.1 million pre-orders" for Killzone 2 in that Guardian interview , although we didn't see it. It's not a surprising number, though, considering everyone's anticipation of the FPS masterpiece. Besides, when GameStop runs a promotion that allows you to sample the game simply by pre-ordering it – they were handing out voucher codes for the playable demo – that's bound to ramp up this particular statistic. We thought that 1.1 million number was worldwide, but apparently, it comes only from European pre-orders.  Just…wow.

Killzone 2 launches on February 27 in North America and from what we've heard, February 25 in Europe. We can pretty much guarantee you a rockin' good time if you purchase this one, and if you opt to pass, you're missing out on one of the finest gaming experiences ever. Can't make it any plainer than that.

You never know if it sells as well as the preorders would have us believe it will it may be in the red box by holiday 2010 or even mid 2010. I don't think it would hit greatest hits before this holiday but you just never know.

Pre-ordered mine from Shopto.net (UK Only(Best in the UK)) i can honestly say im proud to be part of the 1.1mil+, i got there metal box edition because its only £3 more (£32.99) as opposed to the original (£29.99). And like Tanner1 said i really do hope that this trumps the charts and is a smash hit, i want it to outsell COD4 and Halo3 just because my Dutch friends deserve it!!!!!

Anyone know when you can use your preorder codes and get the Killzone 2 demo? Isn't that today as well?

I also heard that MLB the Show 09 Demo is coming out today so I will be a demo-ing fool this evening!!!!

DAMN 1.1million preorders is a crap load just think about all the people going to buy the game without preordering it. And if that is only EU preorders then GOD DAMN MAN!!!

I wonder how the overall sells are going to be.

thats the thing with the psn, sometimes it goes fast, sometimes it takes agessss, the demo only took an hour for me and i have average internet – 5mb, tho i'l be getting the new 50mb speed virgin are ofering (in the uk)

Demo was amazing btw proper blew me away, did it in 11 mins tho, went straight to amazon and preorded it lol (not that i wasnt buying it anyway am one of the few that adored the original Killzone) i recon i should get it early as it said they would ship on the 25, and i got express delivery so hopfully should have it on the 26th!!… here's hoping.

I love to see Guerilla shine. Can Killzone 2 hit 3 mil by April? I think so!

I wonder if this huge number of preorders is because of that advertising they are doing and maybe they have started in Europe already, i havent seen anything over in the U.S. yet though
