Atlus really wants to make it worth your while to buy the American edition of Demon's Souls, and so they've decided to sweeten the offer by adding in the game's soundtrack on top of the 40-page artbook and all the other goodies they're throwing in. The 71-minute CD contains the haunting music of Shunsuke Kida, and is reason enough for me to pre-order the title.

When they talked about the game at Anime Expo, and mentioned their "Stop Importing It!" edition, the logic behind wanting people to buy the local edition was fairly straightforward: It provides an equal playing field for a lot of players, and the experience will be a lot more fun. There's also the fact that they spent a good deal of money trying to bring the title over here, and it'd be nice if people actually bought it so that they could stay in operation.

Are many of you set to buy the game when it comes out? Does the soundtrack tip the scales and make you want to pre-order the game, or does it really have to be something special before you pre-order a title?

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- JULY 29, 2009 -- Atlus U.S.A., Inc., defenders of the macro-transaction (i.e., pay once, get everything), today expanded the free bonus for customers who pre-order Demon's Souls™, a groundbreaking action RPG experience for PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system.

In addition to the previously announced 40-page, full-color art book (SAMPLE), fans who pre-order at a participating retailer can now also expect to receive a free soundtrack CD featuring music from the game (SAMPLE).  The disc, which offers 24 tracks totaling 71 minutes from the game's haunting orchestral score, represents the complete Demon's Souls soundtrack, available for the first time as part of this exclusive North American promotion.  The CD will be secured within the inside back cover of the art book, ensuring that existing pre-orders will receive the added bonus disc.

"With its deep, satisfying gameplay and highly innovative online functionality, Demon's Souls is already a tremendous value for PLAYSTATION 3 system owners," stated Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales at Atlus. "Not content with just that, or possibly suffering from some sort of undetectable mental ailment, we're taking things even further with the expansion of the free pre-order gift being offered to customers. Reserve EITHER edition of the game, Standard or Deluxe, at a participating retailer and receive a 40-page art book and a music CD featuring the game's full soundtrack, all exclusive to North America and at no additional cost to the customer. With this, pre-orders of the Deluxe edition of Demon's Souls become one of the best values in gaming history, and a must-own for collectors and avid fans of the game."

Demon's Souls for PLAYSTATION 3 system is scheduled for North American release on October 6, 2009. The Standard Edition will retail with an MSRP of $59.99, and the Deluxe Edition, which includes a 150+ page strategy guide (SAMPLE) and collectible slipcase, will retail with an MSRP of $69.99.
