The lights are on
Sony has a great post-holiday present for PlayStation 3 owners in the works. If you pick up the Blu-ray release of District 9 on December 29, you’ll have access to an exclusive God of War III demo that’s built into the disc. Once you beat that demo, you’ll also be able to check out a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the game. “Blu-ray functionality has long been a differentiator that separates the PS3 from other home entertainment systems,” says Peter Dille, senior vice president of marketing and PlayStation Network, SCEA. “Through this collaboration with Sony Pictures Home Entertainment we're able to create a unique experience only available on the PS3 system that blends two of the most popular entertainment options available, watching District 9 and playing God of War III off the same disc.”
The Blu-ray edition of Neill Blomkamp’s movie also includes a digital copy, an interactive map and other special features. It will be available for $39.95. Its’ rated R, which should make Kratos feel right at home.

Will the demo still be available for us non-District 9 PS3 folk? Is this just an early, behind-the-scenes exclusive?
frist ff13, now gow3? how long untell all blu-ray disks come with demos?
GOW 3 demo also comes in the re-released versions of the GOW 1+2 ps3 game
Wow. Wow. Wow. A preview of things to come. Maybe this will justify $30 DVD's...
So is this a different demo than the one that comes with the God of War 1 and 2 pack? It looks like it according to this report.
Awesomeness! District 9 is a god movie and kratos, well... nuff said right?
Can't wait for the full game...
I was going to be getting this Blu Ray on its release day no matter what, so this is just a nice bonus.
Sony just has the entertainment industry right where they want them, don't they?
This is absolutely interesting news, and perhaps another reason for me to pick up District 9. But why would they release it only days after Christmas?
Nice move lol
So incredibly tempting to get a PS3 right now..........
huh that seems random but awesome. they should have bundled it with like some greek movie or something
D9 needs to be out now!
A blu-ray I would have considered getting anyways. Is it sad if I don't particularly care either way about the demo? Having never played a God of War game, maybe I should check out the HD re-releases of the first two.
Just a bit of advise for those who already have God of War 1 and 2. (That is if you DONT plan on buying the high def versions in November) District 9 is an amazing movie and to own it in Blu Ray high def would be amazing. The visual effects in this movie are stunning. I would highly recommend it. AND The GOW 3 demo is just icing on the cake! Honestly I may get the re-releases and District 9... Not sure yet.
what is district 9 and who is the god of war
BEST GAME ALIVE
Well this is... odd. I can't picture why in the world these two would be paired together, but I suppose any sort of cross-promotion is fine by me.
:0 OH MY GOSH! I can not wait to rub this in my friends face!!! ;)
