We're used to seeing demos bundled with games. But only recently have we seen some cross-venue promotion.
God of War: Ascension will be one of the most anticipated titles of 2013, and we got an eyeful at E3 this year. The prequel will launch on March 12 but if you'd like to get a peek before 2012 disappears, you'll just have to pick up a new Blu-Ray movie.
That movie is the director's cut of "Total Recall," a Blu-Ray/DVD combination pack (common these days), which will be on store shelves on December 18. The demo will feature that very same gameplay sample we saw at E3 in June, and there's no knowing if Sony will ever put it on the PSN for everyone to try. We just know those who pick up the hot new film starring Colin Farrell will be able to play God of War: Ascension nearly three full months early, and that's nothing to sneeze at.
This always makes me think of demos that came with big games… Devil May Cry with Resident Evil: Code Veronica X , Final Fantasy XII with Dragon Quest VIII , etc. Never thought I'd see the day when a demo for a video game would be included with a new movie.
