PS3 Devil May Cry 4 Demo Not Out Til Next Month

dmc4_2.jpgYou may have read recently that the demo of Capcom's Devil May Cry 4 will be available on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 tomorrow.

Activision has just let us know that while the demo will hit the 360 as promised, the PS3 version won't be out until February 1. Not a major calamity, really, but I was under the impression the PS3 was the lead platform for the game and naturally, would receive stuff like this ahead of Microsoft's console.

Activision did not provide a reason for the delay, but I doubt it's anything nefarious.

Update: For our international visitors, Capcom does not have a local presence in Australia. All its PR, distribution, etc, is handled by Activision. So yes, when we say Activision, we mean Activision.

Update 2: It should go without saying that this story is relevant to Australian PS3 owners only. Not that it matters, as you can easily grab the demo off the Japanese PSN.

    why would activision say anything lol?

    "Next Month" sounds a lot more dramatic than "Next Week" which is when it's actually happening.

    Could you please clarify: is this is worldwide or just Australia?

    What does Activision have to do with a Capcom game? This is bullocks...

    ur a complete idiot.

    activision talking about a game made by capcom.

    -_- why do u even write on the internet?

    well the ps3 was never the lead platform the pc was. The ps3 and 360 versions are ports

    Activision???? I think Capcom is the publisher not Activision

    MS paid Capcom to delay the PS3 demo

    what does Activision have to do with DMC4? lol

    I hope capcom hasn't sold out and the 360 is the main platform with a lousy port to the PS3

    Pwn'd!

    Activision?

    I though the game was made by capcom :p

    Activision????

    What the hell does Activision have to do with DMC4?

    I say BS

    Activision? Uhhh, you mean Capcom, right?

    Glad that it is capcom that makes DMC and not activision.

    Activision?

    how the hell does Activision has anything to do with DMC4?!

    What are you smoking Kotaku?
    Last I checked, Activision has nothing to do with this game.

    The PS3 isn't the lead platform, Capcom already confirmed the PC is the lead platform for DMC4.

    That's too bad... was looking forward to playing it on the native console. Guess I'll have to settle for the 360 demo instead; no matter anyway, it's out in two weeks!

    uhhh activision?

    No idea why international visitors would be on Kotaku AU vs. Kotaku US though? (other than possibly Google searches)

    @Spik3ballon: Google, other game sites linking to stories and n4g.com. :P

    And this is why I prefer the quiet, considered opinions and comments of the Kotaku AU site.
    A little face with your eggs, people?

    Ah, I see. :P
