Lost Planet online demo on PSN

... if you can get yourself onto the Japanese Network

An online multiplayer demo of Capcom's frosty shooter Lost Planet has just appeared on PSN - but only if you're Japanese.

You can get at the demo, which allows for 8 player deathmatch rather than the full game's 16, by changing your PSN region and other sneaky methods of getting at juicy Far Eastern content.

The PS3 version is set to feature all the downloadable content and bonus characters from the year-old Xbox 360 version, plus via the magic of PSN you can of course play online without having to pay a penny. Nice.

The final game's out on February 29.
