Shit. was not planning on buying this on launch, but when will it be $40 (effectively) again? I loved Killzone 2, and if the games didn't have such damned short campaigns, I'd be all over this. Decisions, decisions...

See, that's the point... You don't get it. Amazon do not collect taxes from you it doesn't mean you don't have to report it to your state. I don't hate people keeping their mouth shut about not paying taxes, just those continue thinking it's a deal for not paying taxes.

No offer for the Helghast Edition as usual :-(


Well, looks like I learned something today.

Question, if I pre-ordered before the credit deal was offered will I still get the $20 credit?


I would like to know this as well.

They won't PM Amazon at all.

Fuck, still pissed there was no amazon credit at all for dead space 2 :/

i might bite but meh at the scoring part in the demo, feels like the club to me, but the graphics were good.

Gotta save money for 3DS anyway B)

Usually Zon will offer the credit to all preexisting orders as long as it's for the standard version. I mean they offer that preorder price guarantee so this is similar. Drop a note to their customer service and ask. I'd honestly be surprised if they said no.

I can't resist, I'm ordering so I don't have to hike over to TrU. Both games. Gonna wait on the sharpshooter since I don't have a nav controller and will hope for an accessory sale.

Although people are saying this will be a bargain bin title in a fairly short amount of time, there is one problem... Gears 3 beta! I mean, come on, that's the biggest reason I'm tempted to buy this game. Now this $20 credit, not to mention I'm now getting $20 credit for Killzone 3... I'm really tempted, but not sold yet. Bulletstorm itself looks iffy... and the demo was really short and arcadey. I don't want an arcadey shooter, I want to know if this game has a legitimate story/ campaign mode...

I just finished talking to amazon customer service chat, they said you only qualify if you purchase during the promotion and that i'd have to cancel and reorder.

Stupid but better safe than sorry, so that's what I did.

To all the people hating on this game for absolutely no valid reason, take a step back and look at this from another point of view.

This game is supposed to re-imagine the wacky, over-the-top styles of games such as Painkiller and Unreal Tournament. If you literally have no valid arguments as to why this game sucks, stay the hell out of this thread and go back to your CoD or any other generic military shooter. There are plenty of them.

Anyway, pretty good deal, but I can wait for a drop since money's a little tight.


Agreed, I actually traded in Black Ops to put money down on this.

I think there was a $20 pre-order for DS2.

Yes, this game is like The Club with better graphics and improved weapons/abilities. This genre needs more arcade games that are fun and not mundane like COD and BBC

Seriously? That doesn't sound like them, but whatever. Seems pointless to go through the hassle when they should be able to edit the order. Maybe it's a limited availability deal?

I contacted Amazon and they said I qualified for the $20 from ordering before :/. Conflicting reports then.

C'mon guys, just give them your money so games like Call of Duty will stop being made, I want the return of old school shooters again like Unreal..man UT was amazing back in the day

I agree with you. I want FPS to go back to the days of Serious Sam and Unreal Tournament . The Club from Sega was the last game that brought arcade FPS to the mix


I love you guys! Lol, couldn't have said it better myself. I still have UT on my PC too, if I knew of a popular server I'd probably still be addicted to that game. It's the reason I got broadband and that summer simply disappeared for me. And the few after it... Painkiller, Serious Sam, the old Doom. Now THOSE were FPS's. Not this crap based around hiding all the time that the kids play.

Thanks Cheapy. Still on the fence on this one. I'm surprised there isn't a deal for Killzone 3 on Amazon yet.


Actually, there is. It's also $20.

What aren't people liking about it? I can't really figure out all the hate... the whole idea of trick shooting I think would pander to the hardcore and/or those looking for something that extends the longevity in their FPSs. I don't know if its my kinda game after playing the demo but I didn't exactly come across anything that would make me spiteful towards it. The controls were tight, the AI was acceptable, what gives?

Where do you see that people don;t like this game? You have it backwards. This game is awesome cause it has all the things that made original FPS great.Doom, Quake, and Unreal Tournament were the true FPS, not this COD and BBC crap

It's likely that something was lost in translation.

guess I'll pre-order now... and then try the demo to see if I'll keep the pre-order going.

Like most here, I'm not a huge fan of CoD and long for the days of Unreal, Doom, etc, etc.

According to twitter there giving the $20 credit to people who pre-ordered Bulletstorm before the promotion was applied. So I don't see why the same thing won't happen for Killzone 3.
