This E3, Heavenly Sword started earning a name for itself beyond "Goddess of War." Is really as great playing as its visuals? Find out for yourself this week (hopefully); Eurogamer reported earlier today UK PS3 players would be getting their first slices of the action this Thursday when the demo hits PSN over there, but Sony has confirmed to 1UP that the demo will arrive in the North American PlayStation Network store this week as well.

Will Heavenly Sword be the killer app the PS3's been waiting for? Will it be the start of Sony's next big franchise? Is the anticipation killing you? Kick back until Thursday with 1UP's preview, and then give it a shot yourself.
