Yakuza 6 Demo Removed from US Playstation Store Due to Full Game Unlock Exploit

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

The Yakuza 6 demo has been removed from the US Playstation store after some users found an exploit to allow them to play the full game.

The demo itself is 36.53gb in size and actually contains all the data for the full game, except the demo was designed to lock players into a small portion of the game with their progress being carried over to the full game on release day (17th of April 2018).

The full game exploit appears to be exclusive to the American version of the demo as the demo is currently still available on the UK and Australian Playstation store-fronts. If this changes then we will be sure to update this story.

Glitch Results in Project Mirai DX Demo Being Playable Once for EU Players

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

projectmiraidxlogo

A demo for Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX has gone live on the North American and European 3DS eShops but a publishing glitch has resulted in a strict one use limit for European players. This probably won’t get fixed before the game’s full release.

The North American version suffers no problem with the standard 30 use limit being available. I’m still not sure why the 3DS eShop restricts the amount of uses a player can have with a demo anyway, but at least the North American audience can have a little longer with the demo before they decide to buy the full game.

Remember being able to keep demos? Good times. Anyway Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX launches on the 8th of September.

Demo to Spiritual Sequel of Panzer Dragoon Briefly Appears on Japanese X-Box Live

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Yukio Futatsugi’s spiritual sequel to SEGA Saturn classic Panzer Dragoon (known as Crimson Dragon) briefly had a demo made available on the Japanese X-Box Live Marketplace before it was quickly taken down by Microsoft.

The game is not going to be published by SEGA but SEGA fans may want to keep an eye on Crimson Dragon due to its’ connection to Panzer Dragoon. The appearance (and disappearance) of the demo means that the game must be nearing completion.

Crimson Dragon is a Kinect-only X-Box 360 game and will presumably launch this year.

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

Felik’s rather magnificent fangame Sonic Fusion has bitten the bullet and the final version of the game has been released for download.

You can download the game via this link.

Sonic Fusion was a really interesting blend of old school 2D Sonic platforming with a new school set of techniques like homing attacks and boosting. It also features a great mash-up of graphics sourced from various Sonic games like Sonic 3D Blast and Sonic Advance. You can watch a speedrun of the Fatal Factory stage below:

The Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F Demo at E3 is in English

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Good news for western Project Diva fans! The version of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F being displayed at E3 is in fact completely in English. The title of the game has simply been changed to Hatsune Miku for this tech demo. There is still no word as to whether this means the game is coming to the west or if SEGA are attempting to gauge interest in the title.

There’s even direct-feed gameplay footage for those interested. Check it out:
