Sounds mildly entertaining, I guess.

The God of War 3 demo is out.  Let's discuss! - Dear Sony - fuck you.  I understand that you wanted to put a demo out right before the game is released.  Everyone does it (or at least they should do it).  But you've got a lot of balls to then go ahead and tell the world that yes, this is the same thing you showed at E3 2009.    I might be reading too much into this one, but I think this is quite a daring bit of marketing psychology.  Sony knows that "core" gamers would kill to be able to attend E3 and feel like they're actually a part of the industry.  Putting this label ...
Holy crap, show me more!
