276w ago - While it may have been missing from this week's PSN Store update, the Heavy Rain PS3 Demo (nearly 2GB in size) is actually available there but hidden.

Here's how to get your code to give it a test run, from dreamfall via Kotaku:

Upcoming psychological thriller Heavy Rain won't be out until February 23. The game's demo is not scheduled until February 11. Today is February 5. So what, let's get the demo.

Sony has launched a Web site called "Precinct 52", an alternate reality game of sort. This ARG asks players to submit four pieces of evidence.

For those who want to play the ARG, stop now.

The four pieces of evidence are:

• Short cigarette (117b)
• Origami bird
• Coffee shop C (it says "diner")
• 117h (tyre tracks).

Be care about which coffee shop you pick as there are several, and you must submit the correct one to get the code. Likewise, the writing on the "tyre tracks" is difficult to read.

For those who do not want to play the ARG and would like to submit the correct evidence (at least, correct at time of publishing) and get the demo right now, continue.

Here are some extra codes I have, they didn't work on my North American accounts. One did work on a EU account though, but here are the other two I didn't use. Oh yeah, 2 codes for a Home shirt too, remember EU accounts only.

Shirts :

FJEL-8KBQ-GH9T

Demo :

Like most people already posted: You NEED an European account to download it.

I played it a little bit, but when I was leaving the crime scene it crashed on me!!! Black screen with lot of weird noises and HDD led indication some kind of access. :-)

Just to clear things up, this does not work for US psn store use, don't ask me why since i havent figured it out yet (actually i didnt care...lol). if you want the demo create a EU account & input the code in the redeem codes section of My Account.

hope this is helpful.

i used the same email as my psn account, i've got an english account and code worked right away, i think some people have just been unlucky with it not working for them tbh.

also, make sure your typing it in cap's as well, coz i know some redeem codes can be fussy with capital letters, worth a try if nothing else...

Works for me as well, Weirdass game, but somehow i like it

That is not correct, the code that worked for me I used US as country on the site, and it did not work on my US PSN account, only the european one.

i had the same problem you guys are having, just have the ps3 in the UK store ready to put a code in, and redo the game to get a new code (can use same account as last time).. then use it straight away on the ps3. worked for me.
