I caved and preordered killzone and then read joystiqs review which called it miserable.

A 3.5 out of 5 is miserable? Really? Hrm.
Seems like the reviewer is mainly upset that KZ3 isn't exactly like KZ2.
Play the demos on PSN if you're in doubt.
Personally, I found them quite fun and cannot wait.

I played the beta and the single player demo. The single player one I almost didnt finish because I got bored but I really loved the beta. I just cant buy games strictly for multiplayer anymore because I never stick with a multiplayer game for more than a month or so. I really wanted to see the story continued and see Rico get whats coming to him but the single player has gotten a bad review pretty much everywhere so I think I'll wait out a price drop/greatest hits version.

I completely agree with the Rico statement but define "everywhere"?

I actually enjoyed the MP and thought it was a lot of fun with varied ways of killing enemies on a jetpack, improved melee combos., new weapons. I just found it to be too short. I definitely love the controls now as they are a perfect balance between COD itchy and KZ2 heavy. Also, I know you aren't buying a FPS for a great story. LOL. If you are then you are barking up the wrong tree so to speak.

I bit on Killzone. Had the Helghast Edition preordered somewhere else but I cancelled that cause the actual head statue is cheap-looking.

The fact that you discredit an entire genre and then use an all caps internet term invalidates your opinion to me. For an FPS with incredible story go play Half Life.

As far as who else is saying the single player isnt up to snuff, gametrailers review says it, ign's review says it, joystiq says it, Jeff Gerstmann has mentioned in tweets that there are a surprising amount of technical issues, I mean just go to metacritic if you want and skim through some of the reviews and they all say pretty much the same thing "Story could be better, multiplayer is the reason to buy". Which is fine. As I said, I enjoyed the multiplayer, but for me a strong single player campaign is more important to me and looks like Killzone 3 doesn't have it. I do still look forward to playing it in a few months though.

Anyone else holding out for a drop on the Killzone LE? You just know that thing is going to drop in value since it's a giant box and Killzone is far more niche than Halo or most of the other 'mega' LE's that have come out in recent years (and before one of you goes all crazy about the term niche, be real Killzone has never had the same following as Call of Duty or Halo).

I think I'll grab Bulletstorm now with Gears and wait it out on Killzone, maybe Gamefly it bc I do want to play it but just feel like that LE will drop in a few months to a better price.

Maybe it's because everyone pirates shit for the PC...and that's why we'll never get anything nice. Also yes, I'm a PC gamer as well, and hate that we're getting shafted.
The chance of getting a Touchpad at my local BB is the chance of Texas legalizing gay marriage with Rick Perry as the governor. :applause:

is there any physical ad from anywhere that i could take to Best Buy and get a price match for KZ3? i want to use my last remaining BB credit and be done with them, but I don't want to risk not having a real flyer when I can preorder from amazon and get a cool 20.

I had $300 in amazon credit from trade ins and just pre-ordered killzone 3, bringing my balance to about $250. But my remaining credit doesn't expire.

When the $20 additional credit is added to my account that won't make the entirety of my account expire within 4 months right? Or does it?

How does amazon make a distinction between my $250 which should never expire vs. the additional $20 from the pre-order that does expre?

It's a temporary authorization charge - don't worry about it.

Your 300 dollar credit is actually in gift card form. The game credit is classified as promotional credit - first difference. Secondly each individual promotion has it's own attributes. Expiration dates are not bulked into one.

Thanks for the response. So if i buy something (that qualifies) after I'm given the promo credit, will amazon automatically take money from the promo credit first instead of my gift card balance or will there be some way to manually choose promo credit vs gift card balance at checkout? Thanks.

I'm still in doubt whether if these games are worth owning. Would it be worth the risk if I purchase these two and sell them on ebay? Earning myself $40 in amazon credit. I'm just not so certain if they will sell well though. Any advice?

You'd probably get a bit over $50 for each. Games just released almost always sell near MSRP on ebay.

Yeah thats kinda what I figured it was, I wasnt really worried about it. I had never seen amazon do this out of the numerous games I've preordered with the same card. Thought it was a little strange that now I see a temp charge on a preorder.

$57.99, retro map pack, bonus amazon unlock/upgrade code, no tax charged, free release day shipping, plus a 20 dollar credit to be used on any amazon.com future purchase? I'm down with that.


Same here. I was enjoying the multi demo last week, and thinking I'd wait for it to hit $40 in a couple months, but then Amazon went and talked me into it. :roll:

I was planning on doing the same thing for the last couple months--hold out on a big price drop on the limited...But it just hit me about 5 mins ago that I dont think Sony's LE ever really go on big clearance. I did a search for the GOWIII:UE and you cant get it cheap now--only for over $100.

Now I know most big box LEs drop very quickly but I cant recall another 1st party sony big box ever going that way. If anyone has a counter example please let me know, cause im thinking of pulling the trigger on a preorder this weekend.

Must be a local thing for you, my local Best Buy price matches Amazon, Walmart.com, etc. The manager even said as long as it's a legit company they would price-match it.
