Atlus wants us to let everyone know that since this a much larger release than they typically do, a metric poop-ton in their words, there is an issue that they want gamers to be aware of. The quantities are larger and less manageable than a typical Atlus niche game release.
What they want all North American gamers to know is that the official North American servers will not be running until 10/6. What this means is that users that might manage to pick the game up early and start it up will get an immediate PSN error and have to start playing offline.
So what’s the bottom line? If you get an early copy of Demon’s Souls you will have to wait until launch day to play online,. So don’t worry and don’t panic because when the game officially launches the servers will be up and running, please spread the word about this so there is no confusion. The folks at Atlus thank you in advance.
