It was recently revealed that the demo for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has been region locked to Japan, which is a rather historical moment for the infamy of it being the first time a PSN demo has ever been region locked. Well, not all things have turned south though, as you need not wait too long for your own version, since all of the other regions will also receive the Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo when January 2013 rolls around. Even better news is, it will arrive on PSN and the Xbox LIVE platform as well.
Chances are Konami has taken this opportunity to make an exception to the rule this time around, no thanks to the rather weird circumstances surrounding Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance as the Xbox 360 version has been canceled in Japan. Perhaps Konami is looking forward to a simultaneous launch worldwide save for Japan, which has been delayed indefinitely until the Xbox 360 demo was optimized and ready. Are you looking forward to Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance?
