Scott Pilgrim vs The World vs PSN today!

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

Three months ago, how many of you had heard of Scott Pilgrim? I’ve got to admit, I hadn’t. But after seeing the game at E3, I got really interested in the world created by Bryan Lee O’Malley. Now I’ve read all six of the books (highly recommended), will be seeing the movie this week (again!), and will definitely be playing Scott Pilgrim vs The World later today when it debuts exclusively on PSN.

First take a look at this brand-spanking-new trailer:

If that doesn’t convince you that this game is for you, I’m not sure what will. If you’re all about the 8-bit beat ‘em up style and chiptune music, do read on.

Recently, I (along with writers from a few other gaming sites) had the opportunity to chat with both Bryan Lee O’Malley (the creator of Scott Pilgrim) and Edgar Wright (the director of the upcoming Scott Pilgrim vs The World movie). Both have serious gaming cred; the Scott Pilgrim books are laden with gaming references, and Wright’s Shaun of the Dead and Spaced both prominently featured PlayStation games.

Now I was going to spend a couple of hours carefully transcribing the half-hour conversation and placing the reams of text here. Then I noticed that Game Informer’s Ben Reeves, who was sitting about 4 feet to the right of me during the interview, already did that. You should read it.

My questions were about PSP appearing in Book #6 (O’Malley is a fan of Half-Minute Hero) and how Anamanaguchi got involved in making the game’s (awesome, chiptune) soundtrack.

If you’ve got any further questions, feel free to drop them in, and I’ll see what I can do to get them answered. Otherwise, keep an eye out for the full game (and the free demo) later this afternoon.

For those wondering about the 360 version, the game IS PS3 exclusive for the first few weeks. I think it comes out on 360 sometime later this month or September.

And of course: DAMNIT, WHERE IS IT!? I was planning on having friends over and having a 4-player game.

@Sizzler7: I’m having the same problem. Can you post if you get it resolved?

Adical said:

@#137 when you download using the code, make sure you download both the demo AND the fullgame unlock [that 6KB file].

theupsides said:

August 10th, 3:45 pm

install the demo, then install the full game unlock. then you should be aok.

I HAVE A PROBLEM!
I went into the store and found Scott Pilgrim vs the World (Full Game). I pressed buy now, and then i went into the area where it says to download, I clicked download, and instead of giving me that “Downloading click to download in background” stuffit went through it quickly and said Installation complete. I went to where the game was supposed to be, but its not there. It didnt do all the other stuff that happens when you usually download a game. I have sense tried multiple times to download it but nothing has happened. It does the same thing every time.
I really need some help here of what to do. Otherwise i just wasted money.

Adical said:

August 10th, 3:47 pm

You have to download the demo first! The full game is a 6KB file that unlocks the demo into a full game!

SporkFork said:

August 10th, 3:47 pm

Nevermind other people seem to be having the same problem

SporkFork said:

August 10th, 3:47 pm

See the problem with mine is that I downloaded the demo version of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and I tried playing the first demo and it just black screened on me. I installed it twice and it didn’t work. Please help.

Rocci1212 said:

August 10th, 3:47 pm

Thanks guys, I’ll try installing the demo.

Dark_Pinoy14 said:
