    So glad this series finally got the renown it always deserved (even back as the King's Field games).

    Now... we just need a Demon'sSouls PC version :D

    No it isn't.

    Hell, I'm sitting on a copy that I can't seem to get rid of.

    True, Amazon has a lot of games, but not everyone has the luxury of being able to buy from there.. Brick and mortar shops don't have that big supplies of Demon's Souls anymore, especially as new games :(

    Every store around here still sells used AND sealed copies of Demon's Souls.

    Most have access to eBay though, and look at this: Appropriately priced Demon's Souls copies everywhere!

    Seriously, pretty much any online retailer should be carrying the game for either below, or just above $20 USD. Of course most brick and mortar shops won't be stocking it anymore though. Like nearly any other title that is over three years old, a store is unlikely to be carrying it unless there is a demand for it at the time (like when Dark Souls came out, Demon's Souls was everywhere, used and new). Regardless, as far as I'm aware, PS3 games are region free, so really, anybody that wanted the game at a reasonable price previously should have easily been able to find it. It's really not a hard game to get your hands on at all.

    Just posting here to really recommend the game =P
    Its addition to the PSN is very welcome. It's one of my top 5 PS3 titles. Get it, everyone.

    What I meant is that not everyone has access to online shops be it eBay or Amazon because of the lack of a bank account of their own. Not that there isn't options available. Hell, if the brick and mortar stores were the only option for games for me, I'd be missing about 80% of my game library :D

    PS3 and PSVita games are region free, but the DLC for the games are region locked regardless. In other words, buying the DLC pack from the EU Store and using the US cart/disc will lead to you not having the DLC work even though the game could be pretty much the same sans the wrong region.

    Nice, I recall getting wiped too much as I played it for several hours, until a path with a dragon spitting fire in a long alley. My bro did not enjoy such punishing difficulty at all and luckily got a refund. Quite frankly, I did not enjoy that punishing difficulty either.. Though, I just purchased Dark Souls on amazon for Steam... Prepare to die is right.. Guess I'm masochistic!
