If anyone has a Japanese PSN account you can download a demo for Catherin right now. I haven't finished downloading mine but it's just under 4 gigs.

Somewhat worrying, hopefully the game still turns out good.

I've heard some rumors that Catherine Full Body might be an Amazon exclusive in the states, and Canada and Mexico by extension.

Hmm... I suppose it belongs in here since it's the animated prologue to the upcoming final FFXV DLC story campaign.


Personally, I can't wait. :thumbsup:

Also known as "scrub mode". :tongue:

Seriously though, is it really a "game" at that point? Oh well, I'll mark my calendar...

There is always those who don't want to play games. Anyway, if I had my way I'd disable trophies in that mode. Only a few games do that. DMC3 HD won't give you trophies if you put in the chat code, I think more games should try it.
