If you're as hyped about Insomniac Games' upcoming Resistance 3 as I am, you might want to run out and buy the Blu-Ray for Battle: Los Angeles. The disc features a
code that will allow you to download a demo of the upcoming shooter.
[Ed. note: thanks to user Decora Con Pompones Monclova for the clarification.]
But if you're also like me, you don't want anything to do with owning physical media, much less a copy of Battle: Los Angeles lying around your house. Or maybe you're broke. Whatever the case, if you want that demo, you're out of luck. Well, at least until August. Maybe. Maybe not.
\ We've blogged about this before: read (6) back stories
The folks at VG247 picked up a copy of the Blu-ray disc and spotted wording that stated the demo was "exclusive" through August 9. If this means that that we'll see a demo hit PlayStation Network for all after that time is unknown.
So I asked: neither Insomniac or Sony Computer Entertainment are making an official statement on whether this particular demo or another single-player demo would come to the PSN store. So if you want a guaranteed Resistance 3 demo, if you just need to kill Chimera on a boat, start looking for good deals of the Battle: Los Angeles Blu-ray. The multiplayer beta for Resistance 3 (for folks who purchased SOCOM 4 or for European PlayStation Plus members) is expected to start late summer, however.
Resistance 3 is out September 6. As I was writing this, a new preview build of the game showed up; I'll have full impressions and details up this Wednesday.
