Operation Darkness demo is region locked for North America

odarkness.jpgThis might be old news to some, but an accumulating amount of tips (thanks everyone!!) claimed the Operation Darkness demo is not available to gamers in North America. I asked a few other people living in the US with Japanese Xbox Live accounts to check this out and the result is they cannot get access to it either!


I found this to be quite surprising because the Operation Darkness demo is pretty much localized in English, with the exception of voice acting. Also I managed to download the demo using my Japanese Xbox Live account in the USA without playing with a proxy server. However, I’m not able to download any region locked Xbox Classics. Perhaps, I got it early during while it was for Gold Xbox Live members only? This might be disappointing, but Atlus is probably working on their Operation Darkness demo, a demo with English voice acting.

    Yeah, I thought it was weird when I couldn’t d/l it but you did an article on the Jpn demo. I must’ve tried like 5 to 6 times. I can get the DLC for Idol Master, or even other demos, like Kingdom Under Fire, and it only seems like Operation Darkness is locked :(..

    i figured they started locking all the demos. i tried to grab this one last week, and was locked out. i have a japanese 360 here in the states, and my japanese account was established with my genuine details from just last year when lived over there. next time i’m on, i’ll poke around some other sections and see what i can get … or not get.
