God Of War III Demo Hits Euro PSN
Last week, we heard that a European retailer hinted at the possibility of a God of War III demo hitting the PlayStation Network today.
At the time, we wanted to assume this included the North American region as well but thus far, that's not the case. As you can see at the European PlayStation Blog, the demo is indeed available to download and try today. However, there is no mention of it at the US Blog and we just checked the Store; there's no demo there. It may arrive later in the day but we're guessing gamers in this region will have to wait until next week. If it's only the demo that came with the God of War Collection last year, perhaps some of you won't care so much, but we're still talking about one of the most anticipated titles of the generation. Some early reviews have been sneaking out onto the Internet and besides one 9, we've only seen perfect scores. A demo would also help some gamers ultimately decide between GoWIII and Final Fantasy XIII, which releases the week before. March is gonna be a tough month on the wallet, especially if you plan to pick up the special Collector's Edition for either (or both) of the aforementioned blockbusters.
So anyway, slightly bad news for North America but we'll keep checking the Store to see if the GoWIII demo ends up there later today. If it doesn't, you can always try out the Yakuza 3 demo; it's probably worth your time.
