UPDATED: Try Resistance: Retribution Two Months Before It Comes Out!

Cristian Cardona's Avatar Posted by Associate Product Marketing Manager, Software Marketing

You have heard a lot about Resistance: Retribution since it was announced at E3 2008. Whether it’s the innovative aim-assist, the pedigree of the development studio, the music by Gary Schyman, or the revolutionary Resistance Connect features; you know there is a lot that’s going to be packed in to a little UMD.

We’re pleased to let you PlayStation.Blog readers know that right now, customers who pre-order Resistance: Retribution from Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, or Game Crazy will receive a voucher code granting them access to the Resistance: Retribution demo almost two months early! The demo features single player gameplay and the option to try Resistance Connect with both the Infected mode and Resistance: Retribution Plus.

With the exception of Game Crazy (you’ll have to pre-order in-store) below are links to pre-order at your favorite retailer. Keep an eye out for the pre-order page that will be coming up at the end of January.

Direct to pre-order pages:

Pre-order in store only availability

And now some eye candy for you: some screenshots from the opening cutscene of the demo. Enjoy!

Today I checked the blog and saw this post, got excited, pre-ordered through amazon and nothing. The blog post is dated the 16th, two days ago, so did amazon just stop doing it and not mention it to you guys, or should I still be patiently waiting?

I’m going to buy this game either way, but it sure would be nice to know whats going on. I would even be ok if you could just make the demo freely available, it seems silly to give the demo to people who already want it, I thought demos were supposed to entice you into purchasing… :(

This is pretty frustrating.

So I checked on the Gamestop website and it says pre-order *MAY* include the demo code (limited quantities). So why would I bothered pre-ordering, is this like a lottery?

I had pre-ordered from Amazon, and got nothing had to cancel it.

Now I’m wondering if I can pre-order this from Best Buy. Again, the story let’s you pre-order but there’s nothing in the site that says you get a demo code.

In the meantime, I see people bragging about having played the demo via means that we won’t discuss here. Which is pretty unfair, people that buy games legally and are willing to pre-order have a hard time getting this, people doing it via means Sony doesn’t like get to play before us.

That’s probably not what Sony intends to do with this. My suggestion; Just offer the game for download on the PSN store on the PSP! Or if you do this with stores in the future, make sure they clearly indicate how and when they give the codes and don’t limit them (they’re just a download after all).

I’m glad at least some people are playing the demo, but I wish somebody from Sony would at least address the confusing situation as to HOW to get the demo.

I ordered from Amazon and from Gamestop on the 16th and got NO CODE from either store???

Thought maybe it would just come the next day or so but now it has been 3 days and NO CODE.

Do not waste your time preordering now because either the codes are all gone or they just stopped sending them out.

I retract any negativity that my previous comment may have contained, and I would like to replace it with a thank you.

I pre-ordered through and I received my code about two days later. To anyone else waiting on a code….check your email!!!

Look this is how I got my code.I went to best buys store(not online)they only had like three ases on the shelf so I just pick one up gave the cash register person $5.00 She said keep the receipt so I did and inside the case was the code!And now a lot of people on the internet are saying give me the code LoL.

The demo is out for everyone with an unlocked PSP, you can just download and try it out… And those who prefer to keep things legal (those that will actually pay to play the game you just made) have to wait or pre-order to play the demo now… That’s just unfair and WRONG! Release the demo now for everyone so it doesn’t feel like we are being punished for doing what’s right!
