Killzone 2 has long been the center of a lot of attention by hardcore PS3 fans for it's ultra-realistic graphics and deep multi-player gameplay. However, the title's popularity even among the masses is becoming increasingly more obvious. Amazon just announced earlier today that Killzone 2 was the number one most pre-ordered PS3 game and the #2 most pre-ordered video game total. This puts it above other various blockbuster releases due out soon, including Street Fighter IV(PS3/360 - #8), Halo Wars(360 - #7), and even Capcom's highly anticipated Resident Evil 5(PS3/360 - #4).
Killzone 2 is surpassed only by Mario Power Tennis, which is due out for the Wii in March.
Killzone 2 is a first person shooter and sequel to the 2004 title of the same name. Developed by Guerilla Games exclusively for the PS3, Killzone 2 will hit shelves late in February, on the 27th.
Stay tuned for more info on the title as the release draws near.
