It has today been revealed that a God of War III demo will not be available for download to the European public in 2009.
Then make a japanese PSN account and download it from Japan's PSN store. Come on, it's not rocket-science people. :P
Not for us maybe but how many people do you think will do that, or even know you can outside of us on here? Also, it's not reallythe point, is it? Japan gets this and SCEA gets the upgraded PS2 package THIS year while yet again SCEE consumers get didly. It's just another case of Sony not giving a fu£k about Europe or their loyal customers there. Besides what use is a Japanese damo to most people? Yes, we 'd get to see what the game looks and plays like but I think it's going to be a bit mad with a Japanese Kratos-even the Y3 demo(which I loved)you didn't have much of a clue what was going on even if it, y'know, sounded right. Maybe I've just had enough of always being last in the line for Sony/PSN stuff when we pay more for games in general(and always more than the US)and definitely payed more for our PS3s in the first place. Even Live here lags behind what you get in the US but SCEE are in a league of their own for leaving their customers behind or in the dark.
Its only available on the Japanese store via a code from the inFamous pack.
ah.. i'll be happy playing GOW 1/2 remastered version on PS3. no point playing a short demo. you'll be pissed because you want more.
Not that much of a big deal - i dont need a demo 2 tell me how epic/great GOW 3 is gonna b I ony tend 2 play demos 4 games that im unsure of buyin
Good thing you can at least buy God of War Collection US IMPORT with no problem here in €U.
Isn't the GoW Collection also coming to EU later than other regions? I seem to remember some site mentioning it a little while back.
No need to play a demo when I know this game will be fantastic ;)
That's not good, but can't you just make a jap account?
lol SCEE strikes again. I wish that Sony loses the foothold in EU completely just because of these reasons. They make NO effort for EU customers what so ever.
lol Arsenal4Ever strikes again. I wish that Arsenal4Ever loses bubbles in N4G completely just because of the above reason. Arsenal4Ever makes NO effort for N4G what so ever. I'm just joking
yes they should loose their foothold over a demo and a remastered ps2 game /sarcasm
its not just the demo and remastered PS2 game. Look at SCEE since the PS3 released and you'll understand what I mean.
"I wish that Sony loses the foothold in EU completely JUST BECAUSE OF THESE REASONS" is what you said, not saying its fair but you can easily make US or Jap accounts and import games.
I have a US and JPN account. Still cant get the GOW 3 demo through the required infamous code I believe for JPN... USA get the demo from the PS2 Collection... so i could import that I guess
EU has the vidzone which the US doesn't have, it also has the play tv that the US doesn't have. You have free dynamic themes ( Wipeout & Motorstorm ) Us doesn't have any for free. You also get some demos and games before us as well. So it is the same in all regions as far as getting stuff and not getting stuff.
fluff like themes and a music video app that is replicated by going to youtube hardly compares to the content of the US ps store.
but but but Europe is loyal and teh most important region for sony. lmao! These fools.
bu bu you can make other region accounts on ps3 and can import games because its not limited by last gen region locks.
You guys are awesome. /Irony.
Guy with a halo pick talking about Sony...Irony at its finest.
As long as it comes to the US account, it's allright. It's not harder to make a Us account and download it from there.
I doubt it's coming to US/UK till march2010. This is Sony's way to apologize to Japan for 360's abomination NinjaBlade. I'll just download it from my JP PSN. Anyone who knows GOW, can learn the controls and the screen gives easy to understand onscreen visual tutorials. You don't need to know the language. $5 says it'll be in English with JP subtitles anyway.
The demo is for the pre-order of Infamous in Japan and when you purchase The God Of War Collection in North America you get a voucher code.
So as the title says there are 2 ways for Europeans to play the God of War 3 demo. 1. Import the God of War collection as every copy comes with the God of War 3 demo. 2. Go to the Eurogamer Expo 2009.
Uuugh, this is bullsheet Roman and you know it!!
first, no "demon souls" and now no GOW3 demo in '09? that sucks. sorry euro gamers.
