The Metal Gear Rising Revengeance demo has hit the Japanese PSN so if you’re lucky enough to have an account, you’ll be able to download and partake in one of the most exciting games to come out in a while.
But wait one minute, in order to play the demo, you’ll also need to have a Japanese PS3, the reason being is that the demo is region locked. Japandaman HQ downloaded the demo to test the rumours and they’re correct, the demo doesn’t run. This has happened before with the demos for Persona 4 Arena and the Joysound Karaoke System which was a Japan exclusive however this is the first demo to be region locked on PS3.
The demo will not be made available on the Xbox 360 seeing as how Konami has retracted and cancelled the release of the game in Japan for the 360.
So for now, it looks like we’ll have to wait for a local release of the demo on the PSN.
