Europe denied God of War 2 demo

UK gamers are going to have to wait for the ultra-violent PS2 sequel

God of War 2 - Perhaps the PlayStation 2's last hurrah - is almost finished and a demo will be released soon, says director Cory Barlog.

Unfortunatley for us Europeans though, it looks like the sword-slashing demo is going to be limited to the US:

"It will be a NTSC disc that will be sent out to the peeps who responded a while back when I posted about it. Sorry to all who are hoping to get one now, but I am already waaay over the number I originally set out for," Barlog wrote in his blog.

"For the people who are hoping for a PAL demo, I am really, really sorry but with the time frame we have in front of us there just is not enough time to get both a PAL and NTSC demo done. I would love to do that, but I really want to ship this game on time."

It's not all bad though, as according to Sony's latest release schedule we only have to wait until April for more ultra-violent God of War goodness.
