Uncharted Drake's Fortune demo seems to be locked for U.S Only

Yup, the new demo for Uncharted Drake's Fortune seems to run only on U.S console regarding new post on Neogaf forums. PS3 are freezing with a black screen or they ask you to insert a disc.
Maybe it's just a bug, who knows ?

Here there is one post illustrating the problem
"The people complaining about the two problems (blank screen, insert game disc), do you have a PAL system? I'm wondering if somehow there's something messed up there."

The story is too old to be commented.

That's a bad move from Sony or Naughty Dog.
There is no need do make this, just piss off European gamers.

We will be sure to inform yo how big of a let down it was.

Just make an American psn account. It takes about 3 minutes and you can download everything.

We have downloaded it. It's REGION LOCKED, meaning the demo won't play on our systems!

Well ... Then to our european playstation brothers, THE DEMO IS FUC|<ING AMAZING! I'm sorry, I'm not trying to rub it in, but DAMN this is a hell of a good game. I can see myself spending tons of hours playing this. Here's hoping you guys get the demo soon. :)

Edit; seems some of the PAL PS3s are crashing due to the demo? Maybe that's why they region locked it? Because there was a problem with running it on a PAL PS3? Who knows! :(

As if they dont piss us off enough, they decide to make the demo of what is meant to be the ps3's best game region locked. Sony, suck my balls. Cus you are one of the worst companies i have known. Dirty Evil Robbin Bastards

OMG, wtf Sony. It's not working for me.

I finally understand why the pilgrims left Europe way back when for America. It wasn't for religious freedom, or independence at all! It was because they knew the Uncharted Demo would only work here!

Friends from Japan are also having trouble playing.

But if it was region locked, i think it should say it instead of giving you weird errors.

It sounds more like a bug.

If it was in fact a lock, then that's a bad move on sony's part.
