New PlayStation Vita owners in Japan will, along with their console, get a physical (card-based) demo for upcoming action RPG Soul Sacrifice.
The move, which is both generous and obviously targeted to ensure even those that aren’t buying a memory card get to see the Vita’s big hope for the first few months of 2013, is a smart one.
The cartridge will also come with various video demos of other games for the machine, namely Gravity Rush, Hot Shots Golf 6: World Invitational, and Uncharted: Golden Abyss.
The demo is also available to download for existing Vita owners. No word on anything similar outside of Japan, but a demo disk was one of the things that the original PlayStation really benefited from.
