Next Tuesday, Guerrilla Games' warmly received first-person shooter Killzone 3 arrives exclusively for the PlayStation 3. The franchise is one of Sony’s biggest, and the publisher is treating the release to a special $130 Helghast Edition, as well as downloadable content from the get-go.

Now, Sony is offering fans without a system a reason to get on board. Due out alongside Killzone 3 on February 22 will be the new 160GB Killzone 3 PlayStation 3 bundle. The package will include a copy of the title and a system for $300, the same price as the 160GB PS3 solo.

Gamers eager to jump into the game before it is released next week can download a single-player demo for Killzone 3 from the PlayStation Store today. The demo features a single level, Icy Incursion, which sees players return to the conflict between the human Interplanetary Strategic Alliance and the Nazi-like Helghast. As the title implies, the level will feature a wintry landscape on the planet Helghan, which players must negotiate with the help of jetpacks. Melee combat will also play a major role in the level.

Killzone 3 will be available in two versions, a standard $60 release and a $130 limited-edition package with a replica mask and helmet of the series' signature Helghast armies. While the headgear is the centerpiece of the extra goodies, the collector's edition will also include a 6.5-inch articulated cloaking Helghast marksman action figure, an art book, and a voucher to download multiplayer maps, the game's soundtrack, and more.
