PlayStation Store Senior Manager Grace Chen has announced today that the Kane & Lynch demo for PS3 is coming this Tuesday to PSN for PlayStation Plus members.
To quote: We've got exciting news for PlayStation Plus members! On Tuesday, July 20, an exclusive demo of Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days will be available for automatic delivery to your PlayStation 3 system, just for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
The demo is available exclusively to PlayStation Plus members for one week on the PlayStation Store - both by automatic download and from the storefront.
The demo will be available to all PlayStation Store users on Tuesday, July 27.
IMPORTANT: To receive the automatic download, make sure to turn on the "Automatic Download" feature in the "Settings -> "System Settings" menu on the XMB. You can select a timeframe (2-hour interval) you want the PS3 system to check for available downloads.
- You must be an active PlayStation Plus subscriber to enjoy the convenience of automatic downloads (which also delivers firmware updates and game patches).
- If you turn on the Automatic Download feature before Monday, July 19, expect to have the Kane & Lynch demo pushed to your system July 20th or 21st. during the timeframe you designate in your settings.
- If you turn on the feature between July 20 - 27, you can expect to have the demo pushed to your system within 24 hours, during the timeframe you designate in your setting.
- You'll get the demo more quickly if your PS3 is not turned on during the timeframe you designate to check for updates, because the auto download feature of PlayStation Plus looks for content while your PS3 system is turned off.
- The demo will also be published to the PlayStation Plus section of PlayStation Store during our weekly store publish on Tuesday 7/20. Again, this will be available only for PlayStation Plus members.
Here's how it works. The Automatic Download feature:
- turns on your PS3 system every 48 hours (during the timeframe you designate)
- checks for content
- downloads anything available to your PS3
- shuts off your PS3 system
- If your system is on during the timeframe you designate to check for updates, your PS3 will check for updates after it is turned off, during its next designated timeframe. This will likely be 24 - 48 hours later.
- If you already have the demo on your system, PlayStation Plus will not push the demo to your system. (This is true even if you get the demo and then delete it.)
- If you haven't subscribed to PlayStation Plus, there is a 12-month package available for $49.99 and a 3-month package for $17.99. If you purchase the 12-month package now, you get a bonus three months for no additional charge.
- Visit the PlayStation Plus section of PlayStation Store to see the great discounts and free games that are being offered in PS Plus.
Here's some info on the demo:
