While Konami has just released a Metal Gear Rising demo on the PSN, it’s currently region-locked to Japanese PS3′s only. Those of us in the West have only two options for getting our hands on it. Either we buy the already released Zone of the Enders HD Collection that includes the demo, or we simply wait until next month.
According to Konami, those who don’t reside in the glorious land of Nippon will be able to download the Metal Gear Rising demo sometime in January. It will be coming to the American PSN as well as Xbox Live, so gamers all over will be able to know the joy of violently decapitating watermelons.
While the region-locking is a huge bummer, I guess waiting for a month isn’t the worst thing in the world.
