Preliminary data from VGChartz has stated that Killzone 2 has sold over 750,000 copies since launch day. This places Killzone 2 third behind GTA IV and Metal Gear Solid 4 in the list of the fastest PS3 sellers.
This is no surprise to me as I did not pre order Killzone 2 and then had to go on an all day search for Killzone 2 this past Saturday. The first place I stop was Best Buy and the sales clerk laughed when I asked if they had any left, his response to me was “dude you didn’t pre-order”. So off to the next stop and what turned out to be 12 more stops and no Killzone 2 I even went to 3 WalMarts and one of the clerks at one of the WalMarts I went to asked what platform I wanted it for (at that point I just turned around and walked away). I felt defeated why didn’t I pre order, did I think it wouldn’t sell this fast or was it my thoughts it’s a PS3 title and there is always plenty for the taking. Well what ever I was thinking I will never again under estimate the sales power of PS3 titles again.
**On the plus side I did finally get my copy Killzone 2 that night at 11:30 pm.**
