Atlus now includes soundtrack with Demon's Souls pre-orders

3:20 PM on 07.29.2009 // 8BitBrian

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.

So the XCX Special Edition was marked as in stock for 20 seconds and I got a copy! I am disproportionately excited considering what it comes with. Hopefully the art book and packaging are high quality. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Picked up Valkyria Chronicles for $5 in the Humble Store, figure I'd advertise that for anyone that doesn't have it yet. Sale ends in less than 42 hours after this post yo. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/p/valkyriachronicles_storefront

My copy of National Geographic came today. Best subscription I've paid for, worth it for the lovely pictures alone. This one has a story about elephant poachers and ivory tusks with spy chips in 'em. James Bond shit man.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!

MGSV is looking very good so far! Played to 2% completion last night. Pure stealth seems REALLY hard so far. PS3 version runs fine, loading times are OK, no slow downs, draw distance and pop-in are a bit rough. No glitches. Be prepared! Get it on PS4.

Jealous of all my brethren at PAX Prime. Sad I will miss out on the drinking, orgies and catching the PAX flew. This time next year though, I'll be there! I promise!

Forgot to mention that I celebrated completing Persona 4: Golden by binging on a bunch of totally in-canon doujins. Including, but not limited to, Yu on genderswap't Yosuke. [img]http://i.imgur.com/Ex0MgjW.jpg[/img]
