Experiment: Will the US Metal Gear Rising Demo Play on My Japanese PS3?

#1Seifer_usPosted 1/23/2013 3:59:47 AM
I'm gonna' download the demo and find out tonight.

If it does, awesome.

If it doesn't, then we'll know that whole "trying to improve sales for ZoE in the US" bit was a bunch of hooey and we'll have serious reason to suspect the full game might be region locked as well and that Konami may start implementing region locking more regularly.

I'm hoping for the former, but we'll see what happens in a little bit once the download and install finishes.

Why not download from the JPN PSN?

It does play on my EU PS3, So i suppose it should work on JP, Why don't you just download the JP version?

The US one isn't region locked.

I HAVE the Japanese version already, I just want to see what happens with the US version since that's the version of the full game I intend to buy.

Hmm... if mogar says it's not though, I'm inclined to believe him. I guess I'll find out in a minute.

I understand you were experimenting, I just wondered why you would pick up the US version if you already have played the JPN demo.

Two reasons really, one being what I've already explained about wanting to see if it's region locked. The other being that I want to see if there are any minute differences in content.

Or did you mean why am I buying the US version of he full game? If that's the case, it's just because it'll be easier to follow in English and that's what I'm used to hearing Metal Gear games in.

I`m pretty sure the answers are: will not be region locked and no lack of content.

Well the download is going to be finished in about a minute or so anyway, so it's not like it's a big waste of my time. That's what fiber optic internet is for.

I never understood the need for people to ask questions they can just as easily find out for themselves.
