Two things you might not have known about the Japanese demo of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance , which is available today…for some.

Firstly, this demo is region-locked and can't be played unless you have a Japanese PS3. You can download it from the Japanese PSN if you want but if it isn't a Japanese PS3, you'll just get an error message when you try to play it.

Secondly, the demo weighs in at a ridiculous 3458MB, which may be the single biggest demo we've ever heard of. There's no knowing if Konami will deliver this demo to the North American and European PSNs at some point but if they do, you had best make some room on your hard drive if you're running out of space. However, if you want an early look at the MGS spin-off, you can always pick up the Zone of the Enders Collection , which should be out early next year. Chances are, it's the very same demo and besides, ZoE rules the school.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is set to hit store shelves for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 19 in the US and a couple days later in Europe.

I'd really like to try this one out.

MGR vs DMC vs GoW!
I wonder what will sell the best and receive the most acclaim.

I posted the ZOE collection on sale with $10 off a few days ago in the forum.

FYI, I posted 2 more gaming deals so far for "P4 Arena", "The Game of Thrones plus Artbook Bundle", plus a "FREE" download of "Metro 2033"(for PC owners)today.

So just keep checking the forum's "Good deals for gamers" thread after clicking on the "Gaming Discussions" menu button.

BTW, a lot of those deals are "24 hour only deals" & I get some of their deal emails later in the day, so you should check at least 3-4 times a day for any new late postings.

Damn, I feel lucky now for having a Jap PS3 especially all the trouble I went through to get it. So just make a Japanese account and I'm good to go?

Let peeps know if it is good or not =D
