We are pleased to announce today a Blu-ray and PlayStation 3 first!

GoWIII Logo

Come December 29th, when you snag your copy of District 9 on Blu-ray, included on the very same disc will be the highly sought after God of War III E3 2009 Demo. This hybrid disc is an industry and PlayStation first which will pair together this summer’s must see Sci-Fi BLOCKBUSTER with SCEA’s powerhouse action title. As an added bonus for God of War fans, those that complete the demo will unlock an exclusive making of featurette about God of War III.

Some other cool special features on the District 9 movie disc will include a Interactive Map feature “Joburg from Above: Satellite and Schematics of the World of District 9,” which provides a highly detailed environmental exploration of the world through a series of interactive satellite maps, technology schematics and photo-real files; and movieIQ, which allows viewers to immediately access continuously updated information on the cast & crew and explore relevant trivia such as production facts, music and soundtrack information all tied to scenes within the movie.

Does this mean you can only access the Demo from PS3?

I mean, we can play Blu-Ray from another Blu-Ray player, but not a PS3 Demo.

An odd choice to include this demo with this movie.

In regards to the GOW collection. Why would you guys have a voucher as opposed to including it on the bluray disc?

Nice idea! Could you confirm that the movie and the demo are region free?

lol.. i’ve already pre-ordered God of War Collection and God of War 3, and i was planning on picking up District 9 anyways for Blu-Ray (my personal favorite movie of the year so far)

Well it took you long enough… ;)

I’ve always said you guys should have been doing things like this for years! I mean it was common to have the PC demo of a movie tie-in game on the DVD, so it made perfect sense to me to have the PS3 demo on Blu-ray?

There have been so many previous opportunities to do this with previous Sony films and PS3 game tie-ins why has it taken so long? And I wouldn’t mind but I’m struggling to see how District 9 even fits with God of War III (aside from giving the film a sales boost from GoW fans).

The only other time I’ve seen something like this was a Sony film that also included a free XMB theme based on Resi Evil Degeneration.

Hopefully this will become the norm in future…

I am completely and totally uninterested in the God of War 3 demo. I would not mind seeing the movie itself, as I have heard good things about it. But I have no reason to care about God of War 3 because the first two GOW’s had no subtitle option. This is something Sony could have easily corrected in the upcoming God of War collection, but for some indiscernible reason, they have failed to do so. Sony must not be interested in getting any money from the 10% of the population that is deaf or hearing impaired (according to the National Association of the Deaf).
Seriously, it really sucks to be frozen out of an experience that I have heard so many good things about over the years. Even if God of War 3 has subtitles, how can I throughly enjoy it without having experienced the first two games in the saga? Imagine trying to watch Return of the Jedi without seeing the first two Star Wars movies. Why are subtitles/closed captions, though increasingly common, not a universal feature in all new releases by now?

I saw the movie six times in theaters (I saw it 4 times on someone else’s dollar, and the two times I paid for it, it was $4.00 per ticket). It was incredible. I was planning on getting it on blu-ray anyway, but… wow. Could the deal possibly get any better?
