When you're met with a black screen after spending over an hour to download a demo which you've been looking forward to play, you are not best pleased. You then find out it's all PS3's owners who are outside of the US and Canada that are having the same problem. You then get angry. Why is Sony employing region- locking on an originally region-free console. All the blu-ray games and game demos are region free, why isn't the Uncharted demo, perhaps the most important game for Sony this year.
Well the official response at the Playstation Blog is disconcerting. However, an official comment from Sony after the many posts of upset fans seems to state things in a different manner. This bug on non-US PS3's was not intentional region-locking, but a bug that of course was not discovered when putting up the demo, as it was not tested on a non-US unit. They say they are working on it, and hopefully we'll have some very good news tomorrow
