Though the North American demo will be limited to those that pre-ordered the game from GameStop, the European demo will be available to the public, presumably including those in North America that make a European PlayStation Store account.
The demo will contain a tutorial, as well as two parts of the game's first stage, Sony Computer Entertainment informed Joystiq alongside confirmation of the release.
For those that in North America don't feel like dealing with the hassle of creating another PlayStation Store account, the North American PlayStation Store will provide public access to the demo on February 26, one day before the shooter lands in stores.
Damn I pre-ordered it from Amazon because I found a good deal. Thats pretty gay that I can't play in the beta because I didn't preorder from GS
Euro account. Takes like 15 minutes to setup.
