Killzone: Shadow Fall available today at GameStop

PlayStation 4 launch title available for purchase at GameStop locations across the United States beginning today.

GameStop stores across the United States will begin receiving shipments of PlayStation 4 launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall today and copies can be sold right away, the retailer has announced.

"GameStop is the first place for gamers to pick up their first PS4 retail game," a representative for the company said. New copies of Killzone: Shadow Fall are also available through GameStop's website.

In addition to Killzone: Shadow Fall, GameStop stores in the US are currently selling the DualShock 4 controller ($60) and the PlayStation Camera ($60). The PS4 launches in the United States on November 15 for $400.

Killzone: Shadow Fall was developed by Guerrilla Games and is set 30 years after PlayStation 3 game Killzone 3.

In addition to supporting the game's multiplayer component, Guerrilla Games is currently working on an all-new IP that is described as "completely different."

@GAJY_FILTH If you decide you don't want it after reading someone's opinion then you can just return it as long as you don't open it up...they did this to further hype the ps4 and not to beat any possible mediocre reviews.

Horaay. I can go buy it today and stare at the cover for three weeks. Sounds like a freaking blast.

Get some sales in before the reviews hit and call it pretty but generic. I'm really looking forward to my console, but can't get any enthusiasm up for this game. The MP in the last one was fun for a while, but the tiny campaign just felt like sci-fi COD by-the-numbers stuff.

I'll buy this game and then put the disk on a PS3. Who knows...

@noandno Maybe you will time travel once it hits 88rpm.

@noandno the PS3 will display a message saying "please connect two more PS3s and a smart phone with touch screen to run this game" 

*the smart phone is for the touch features*

I hope other retailers start selling early too. Gamestops Australian counterpart eb games always sells games $15 - $40 more than most other retailers. Id love to pick up my games early at a possibly cheaper price.

this seems really dumb. Go to the store, buy the game, go home, wait 3 week to play. fun

@themc_7 Yeah, but I did it just to lessen the stuff I need to pick up at a midnight launch. I have a dualshock 4 already as well. Less money I need to bring to a populated launch and less things I need to carry home with me.

They're obviously using this kind of tactic to hype up the PS4 launch. A pretty smart move i have to say.

I've already purchased my Dualshock 4 controller and I have my PS+ 12 month sub card. I think I'm going to pick this up in the morning.  Seems so backwards that I will have all my games and accessories before I even touch the system in two weeks or so.

@SuperDutchy I too renewed my PS+ account for the first time in like 3 years..... then the wankers delayed Drive Club!!!

What's the point if you can't even play the game for another 2 and a half weeks or so?

Makes me wonder if they'll release more titles early.

Oh!  Does the Dualshock 4 controller work on PC yet?

@Zloth2 I don't think Sony has done anything about it yet :(

I can only get it to work properly with certain games. Other games the controller layout is completely wonky. Like triggers being recognized as start and select.

@Zloth2 yes it should, the rep at gamestop said it was confirmed before i picked up my camera.

@Zloth2 it works but the sixaxis and the touchpad won't work. maybe there will be a software or an official driver in the future, but not right now

@Zloth2 @hellgast0 I didn't know they still filled out the manual beyond the first page of seizure caution.

@Zloth2 @hellgast0 IGN have an unboxing of killzone online and it doesn't actually have a manual. The controls are printed on the reverse side of the cover and that's about it...... oh it also came with a free PS+ 7 day trial.

@excelprevail @mattman127 Too bad they want Gamestop employees to push "Items Per Transaction" when the consoles launch so many Gamestops won't make people aware that Killzone is available so they can have plenty of copies the night the consoles launch so they can have high IPT

@dominoodle @excelprevail @mattman127 actually this is not really true. anyone who reserved anything x1 and ps4 will receive text/email alerts. i did for killzone and the camera. there are doing this now to reduce wait times at 12 am on the 14th…

@untouchables111 @dominoodle @excelprevail @mattman127 Sure, but if you go into a Gamestop they probly won't be like "Hey we got Killzone already, wanna buy one?" unless you ask about them. They want to save them to be picked up alongside the console for higher IPT.

Trust me, i work for Gamestop.

@dominoodle @excelprevail @mattman127 It's likely only the people who had preorders know unless they visit video game sites of course. I got a call last week to tell me it was in and ready for pickup.

Now I have Killzone: S.F., a Playstation camera and an enormous amount of impatience for the 15th and 22nd to get here.

Shadow Fall's story actually looks compelling, previous games plot quality keeps me wary but the idea that Killzones story may finally match up with its gameplay and setting keeps me incredibly optimistic.

It would be great if I planned to buy anything at a Gamestop again but I do not. The chump behind the counter at the 185th store, in Portland Oregon, was the straw that broke the camels back. There are only so many times you can get shitty service before you simply walk over to the Best Buy across the way.

@zintarr I understand what you mean from other stores but the gamestop I go to I'm cool with all the employees and they hook me up with stuff. People need to take pride in their job or find a new profession that they actually care about!

@zintarr When you have bad experiences like this you need to report it to the person in charge. Gamestop is huge on customer experience and i can guarantee you that if their district manager hears that this guy is causing bad experiences on a regular basis then he will be swiftly fired.

Giving poor reviews on the customer experience survey (that prints on each receipt) is a good way of letting their district manager know that they are doing their job poorly. Trust me, they read them.

@zintarr That's how it is at at least a few locations for every retailer. I found a great Gamestop that I get many of my games from though it was the 3rd one I tried. The rewards card is actually awesome if you trade in and/or buy used games. Every year I can buy at least one new game thanks to the points system. I even enjoy the free year of Game Informer.

I don't know why, but I'm considering buying it now, even though I won't be able to get a PS4 for a while.
