soulsSony Computer Entertainment Japan is giving Soul Sacrifice another push by giving a boxed copy of the demo with all PlayStation Vita purchases starting on January 23. The Vita card also includes videos for Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational, Gravity Rush, and Uncharted: Golden Abyss.


Aside from the trailers, the Soul Sacrifice demo has the same content as the downloadable demo currently on the PlayStation Store. Soul Sacrifice comes out on March 7 in Japan.

    Just like old times, eh?

    • Rohan Viajar

      I think this way costs more but it definitely gets the word out faster. (which I think would be beneficial if a company were so sure that their game would sell)

  • Curan_Altea

    Well that seems…. Odd. Been a while since I’ve heard a bout physical media consisting of only demos.

  • Dede Ogbe

    Yeah just like the days of the ps2 era!

  • Devin Hudson

    The demo is over 1GB, and most new Vitas only come with a 4GB memory card, so they probably figured more people would be willing to try it if there was a physical copy right there instead of hoping that they’ll download such a large file with the limited space they have. Doesn’t seem like that bad of an idea, especially to help cater to those who may initially be unfamiliar with the ways of digital gaming.

    And since the only way to get this Soul Sacrifice demo card is by purchasing a Vita, I can’t imagine too many of them being made (I guess it depends on how long they keep the promotion going), which means it could become a collector’s item one day.

    A demo compilation disc? Way to go retro, Sony! Still waiting with bated breath for this game.

    • Lol, no kidding. I remember getting these for my Gamecube.

  • Elvick

    Should have included a teaser for Tearaway too. Even though there’s no release window yet. At least it would push the title into people’s minds more.

    Also, return of a demo “disc” is awesome.

  • BloodTorrent

    So glad to see Sony pushing soul sacrifice after how badly they’ve failed with vita marketing in general so far. I think this game could easily fill the void left by monster hunter if Sony keep backing it and get people interested, and it will certainly sell vitas, at least in japan.
