    As far as I know, it's not out for the xbox360. It's a ps3 exclusive.

    But it's a very good and very hard game. If you have the patience, you'll enjoy it a lot ;)

    Awesome game, but a pain in the ass to finish.

    Carl Vinland was a royal pain in the ass, along with the Flamelurker

    It was released in the US back in February 2009. The videos are coming from PS3 users in the US.

    I have absolutely no clue. I know my friend has had the game for months. He has already beaten it, given it to someone else, they beat it and gave it back.

    From what I saw and played, it was not that good, just hard to beat. It is solely about the challenge of the game itself. Plot, story, maps that make sense all take a back seat to this game is going to be a complete bitch to beat.

    It went from being released only in japan to Atlus picking it up and bringing it to the USA and now Namco bandai secured publishing rights to bring it to the EU. Long story short the game is amazing and is just about the only game i actually care about on my ps3 :toast:

    that was pretty much my favorite boss fight in any game ive ever played :toast:

    Like said PS3 exclusive and it came out in Asia in like 08, all the copies out there are region free, and the Asian games also have english or english subs I can't remember, either way you'd be able to play it fine. The difference is, the Asian game and the US game have the same trophies, but if you had both versions they still would count as seperate games. And whichever copy you play, the online is only linked with people with the same US or Asian version you got. Not sure if the EU version will be like that, but if you want it now, check ebay and buy from someone that ships worldwide.

    I buy second hand, saves a lot of money, just bought Red Dead Collectors edition (with a not used code) for $48, which is a few dollars cheaper than brand new here.

    You should be able to get a used copy of Demon Souls right now though rather than waiting for a pre-order.

    Its not out for the 360 and never will be.

    Demon's Souls is pretty old now, but its only now getting a European release because it was deemed 'too hard' for the European market. Hence it only being available in Japan and a while after, the States.

    LOL. A lot of good games can be picked up cheap if you dont mind 2nd hand titles. Most are like new anyway (if you use the right stores and ebay users)

    It must be nice to be minted! :)
