Heavy Rain PS3 Demo is Available Now via PlayStation Store
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.

Dammit the Web site seems to be temp-down for me.
"We are currently working to address some site issues caused by overwhelming demand. Sincere apologies for the delay, and please check back shortly."
Site was down, but I did manage to pull this out and register an account. Haven't gotten access to enter code, but got a code for PS Home clothing... which didn't work
Guess that was a waste of time... sorry.
Just found this after decompiling the swf.
Currently decompiling that for something useful.

Thanks for this info, after loads of attempts to get onto the site i finally managed to get it done although it was slow but i've got my code for the demo!
I got the code... also didn't work
Mine works fine, but i have a European account think thats why..
I got my code yesterday, since I was following the 4 day challenge myself! I got the demo, works fine, and it's awesome!
Unfortunately, I feel like the demo doesn't really show you what the game is about.. and it would have been better to just wait for the game...
Anyways, it was still awesome to play this in advance, can't wait for the final game!
