Earlier this week it was revealed that the first Uncharted: Drake`s Fortune demo was only playable for North American PS3s, angering thousands of gamers outside the region. This is no longer the case as the issue at hand has been fixed.
Play.tm reports that developer Naughty Dog has re-worked and fixed the Uncharted demo, so Japanese and European PS3 owners can now grab it from the US PlayStation Store.
“We’re really sorry about what happened and didn’t anticipate this at all. We just didn’t know people from other territories could connect to the US PLAYSTATION Network Store and download demos … now we do! We’ve been too busy working on the game to wrap our head’s around the infrastructure of the PSN.
“We absolutely did not plan the demo to be region locked. As soon as we figured out the problem existed, Sam Thompson called me and I jumped into my car, drove to the office and fixed it right away. It’s an honest mistake and we didn’t try to prevent anybody from enjoying the Uncharted demo. I feel even more sorry because most of the people who experienced the problem are in Europe and I’m European myself.
“So again, we’re really sorry about what happened and it wasn’t done on purpose. The good news is it’s now fixed and a new demo of Uncharted has been posted to the US PLAYSTATION Network Store so the entire world can enjoy it.”
