God Eater Demo Up For Easy Download

By Ishaan . February 18, 2010 . 7:43am


Namco Bandai’s God Eater demo received over a million downloads in Japan, and the full game went on to sell around 295,405 copies in its first week at retail. If you’ve been wondering what all the fuss is about, you can give the demo a spin now.


The demo is around 140 MB in size and doesn’t require a Japanese Playstation Network account. Simply head to this link, download the ZIP, follow the easy-to-understand folder setup diagrams and dump the demo onto your memory stick as required. Keep in mind it’s entirely in Japanese. D3 Publisher is working on an English version of God Eater for North America slated for Q3 2010.


A huge thanks to Patrick for putting this up on our Facebook group!

  • Hasn’t this been avaliable for quite a while now?

    • It has. I just wasn’t sure people knew it was so painless to acquire.

      • I wish they’d do this with all PSP demos.

        • I know, right? Having like, four different accounts is such a hassle…do they WANT people to try out these demos or not? >_>

          • Exactly! And then you have to do extra work because authorizations get canceled if you go to another account. It’s ridiculous.

            There should be just one PlayStation Store. One. And if people want to buy games from a different region, let them. What do they care? They’re making money either way. More people would probably buy the PSP and PS3 if the PlayStation Store wasn’t so strict.

    I didn’t know official sites actually allowed you to download demos this way (or at least, the URL seems like it’s the official site). But I prefer this way, since I wouldn’t have to associate my PSP with my other account.

    Ooh, nifty. I’m one of those lazy types (I couldn’t even bother hooking up my PS3 to get Fl0w when it was free) and I was getting really irritated with myself for not picking up the demo by now.

    why not? my psp has gone untouched for over a year now. i need a reason other than my emulators to use the thing. since buying it in 2005, i’ve only really enjoyed ridge racers, killzone: liberation, chains of olympus, and some kanji trainer by sega.

    • For what it’s worth, wipEout Pulse is easily my favourite PSP game. :)

    Has anyone DL’ed it from the Jpsn? I did and I have tried it like 5 times but I go under game, then to my memory stick, next I click God Eater and it tells me, “You cannot start the game by selecting the game data.” Then how do I start the demo?
    Can I DL it from here and play it on my psp, without having it hacked? Sorry I’ve never DL’ed anything for my psp from the net.

    I got it now, it works! ^^ I link above worked! But the demo from the Jpsn didn’t work…..
