Siliconera - Sony Computer Entertainment Japan is giving Soul Sacrifice another push by giving a boxed copy of the demo with all PlayStation Vita purchases starting on January 23.
Wtf? What about early purchasers? I want to play the dang demo... :\ Lame move there Sony, I know you're trying to sell more, but at least make it so that people who already own a Vita can give it a go as well.
the demo is already out on the jap store. please check your facts before screaming they haven't done anything
Alright my bad there, I didn't see it was the Japanese version. (Should have probably been in the title.) Still, it's a pain to switch accounts on the Vita, so it's not really worth going through 20 minutes of resorting bubbles and putting wallpapers back up just for a demo. Wish they'd fix that...
Well its just a demo. It sucks when new people get benefits, but thats the problem with early bids. We get it early and get to enjoy it, but we miss out on bundles and price cuts.
why are people hating on Sony for this? Sony need to be doing more of this sort of stuff to get their games to more people. Soul Sacrifice looks amazing... playing it at TGS I know it is amazing. But it needs exposure... I am for anything if it means this IP can grow to even greater heights. It is just a demo... nothing fancy.
"why are people hating on Sony for this? " Demo isn't out in the US, most people read Sony as whatever region they're in, so they read it as if they're missing out. When it comes to things like this most people don't read the article and just comment, but in this case I don't really blame them. If I can freely download the demo off the PSN, what difference does it make if Sony Japan preinstalls it on a Vita? If you had interest you would download it, if you don't have interest you probably won't play it, so what group does this help? The people without Wifi? If Japan is anything like the US, they should have several places with free wifi / a friends to freely download it, which would resolve that problem. So... yeah.
Chill out dude. You own the best handheld ever made. What do you expect? Do you want Sony to send a boxed copy to every Vita owner? Lol , that's not very realistic. I'm planning on picking up my third Vita so this is amazing news for me.
Nooo! I want an actual demo.. Don't make it like the MGS demo.. Nooo! Doesn't really matter to me though I am being dramatic. There are just some games you don't even have to play to know they will be amazing. I know Soul Sacrifice will be one of them, if I had a blast with Ragnarok Odyssey there is no doubt I will have much more fun with Soul Sacrifice. Sucks but I am still buying the game regardless. Damn you Japan you get the demo.. I am too lazy to make a Japanese account.
The MGS Demo comes out for US and Europe sometime this month.
I would purchase a new vita just to have a retail version of a demo. Hopefully SCEA will do something like this with Killzone or another high profile title.
they really need to start including internal flash memory. They could just sell the demo pre installed
i will wait it out & be glad i did.. I dont even want to try the demo to be honest.. I want the full experience to be new & refreshing the day i buy it..
SOUL SACRIFICEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!
