Street Date Smashed: This Time It's Killzone 2

killzone 2 street date broken 2.JPG

A Kotaku reader just got his hands on Killzone 2, as you can see. That's because a Gametraders - ah, good old Gametraders - store in Canberra has broken the street date. Anyone else managed to find an early copy?

UPDATE: To clear up all the confusion, reader Steven has sent in a snap of the box and his receipt. Believe!

[Thanks Steven and James]


    More importantly has anyone seen it for sale in Perth

    I want to try and snag a copy of this as well.

    C'mon guys help us out here, lets work together to get GAME and EB to break... I just need some fellow compatriots to help in the campaign and call EB and GAME stores around the country.

    Kotaku LIES. I went there between period 3-4 and they havent even gotten the game in yet.

    Person in pic is hax.

    Gametraders in Canberra rock. One time, they sold me COD4 prior to release, plus a head job out the back. I love you GT

    I just got back from the winston hills EB store and killzone is still listed as "coming soon"

    I'm going for a browse this afternoon to JB Hi Fi, EB and my local GT. I'll let you guys know what is happening.

    @ FMP

    Maybe. But two readers sent in the same tip.

    EB Games at Richmond are selling it now. Just walked past and it's on the new release shelf

    Lack of receipt is a bit dodge.

    Mayhaps gametraders are trying to curry some busines.

    GT is selling also picked up my copie. GT's shipment aparntly had no streetdate listed on there boxes hence the early sale, games are been sold with recipt.

    Mmmm yes Killzone 2... feel good against my skin. Who wants to touch me :P

    JB Kedron (supposably) doesn't have stock yet, and GT Chermside wont break until someone else local does. In my experience EB aren't even worth calling, so hopefully JB get stock soon!

    Well, seeing as it's a long running debate about the lack of R18 classification in Australia, I'm thinking this is probably not a "Canberra" copy.

    Games already reading your comments on breaking us.

    You'll have no luck there :P

    Someone provide proof of purchase in AUS (Receipt) and people will start selling asap.

    After speaking with the Games Warehouse guys it seems their stock arrived without a strict street date on it. Apparently there are usually stickers or a notice and there was none. Sounds good to me! =P

    @ AJ,

    I picked mine up at 11 as the delivery man rocked up at the store, and there were no warnings or such... They also got a shipment of Halo Wars but would not sell that as it did have a street date attached.

    I was supplied with a receipt and Gametraders are calling all pre-order customers... in Canberra atleast.

    the game doesn't have a strick date for GT, EB and Game are foriegn companies and maybe next time you should buy from you're local aussie guru and you would have your copy.

    "Someone provide proof of purchase in AUS (Receipt) and people will start selling asap."

    Shinraa, is there some rule that once the date is broken (and competitors have an opportunity to profit unfairly over your respective store) it's ffa?

    Just spoke to the GameTraders in Maribyrnong, Vic. They're selling the game now, they just got it in stock, its not on the shelves, but there is no street date on the boxes apparently.

    to casey, just so you know the game has the 18 and ma15 rating on it so it is not an import. just so you know i work at the gametraders store in canberra, we are selling it call me a nd ask if you want (02) 6293 3751

    Hopefully the online servers are up and running - the promo copy I've had for the last few weeks comes up with an error when you try and go online

    JB HiFi in Perth and Joondalup both said Thursday or until 'head office' calls. Likewise EB in Joondalup and Gametraders in Carilliion both said go away.

    I can confirm that a Canberra Game Traders is selling Killzone 2! I just bought my copy! Hurrah for the dude at my local GT!

    Definitely an Playstation Australia copy with MA 15+ rating
