Coming Tuesday to PSN: Kane & Lynch Demo for PS3

Grace Chen's Avatar Posted by Sr. Director, PlayStation Store

We’ve got exciting news for PlayStation Plus members! On Tuesday, July 20, an exclusive demo of Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days will be available for automatic delivery to your PlayStation 3 system, just for PlayStation Plus subscribers. The demo is available exclusively to PlayStation Plus members for one week on the PlayStation Store — both by automatic download and from the storefront.

The demo will be available to all PlayStation Store users on Tuesday, July 27.

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days

IMPORTANT: To receive the automatic download, make sure to turn on the “Automatic Download” feature in the “Settings –> “System Settings” menu on the XMB. You can select a timeframe (2-hour interval) you want the PS3 system to check for available downloads.

Auto Download for PlayStation Plus

Here are some things to know:

  • You must be an active PlayStation Plus subscriber to enjoy the convenience of automatic downloads (which also delivers firmware updates and game patches).
  • If you turn on the Automatic Download feature before Monday, July 19, expect to have the Kane & Lynch demo pushed to your system July 20th or 21st. during the timeframe you designate in your settings.
  • If you turn on the feature between July 20 – 27, you can expect to have the demo pushed to your system within 24 hours, during the timeframe you designate in your setting.
  • You’ll get the demo more quickly if your PS3 is not turned on during the timeframe you designate to check for updates, because the auto download feature of PlayStation Plus looks for content while your PS3 system is turned off.
  • The demo will also be published to the PlayStation Plus section of PlayStation Store during our weekly store publish on Tuesday 7/20. Again, this will be available only for PlayStation Plus members.
  • Here’s how it works. The Automatic Download feature:
    • turns on your PS3 system every 48 hours (during the timeframe you designate)
    • checks for content
    • downloads anything available to your PS3
    • shuts off your PS3 system
  • If your system is on during the timeframe you designate to check for updates, your PS3 will check for updates after it is turned off, during its next designated timeframe. This will likely be 24 – 48 hours later.
  • If you already have the demo on your system, PlayStation Plus will not push the demo to your system. (This is true even if you get the demo and then delete it.)
  • If you haven’t subscribed to PlayStation Plus, there is a 12-month package available for $49.99 and a 3-month package for $17.99. If you purchase the 12-month package now, you get a bonus three months for no additional charge.
  • Visit the PlayStation Plus section of PlayStation Store to see the great discounts and free games that are being offered in PS Plus.

Here’s some info on the demo:

Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days is a raw and brutal crime shooter that redefines the way you experience gaming, delivering an unmatched sense of realism and intensity. The demo includes relentless action in single player and online multiplayer. Play as psychopath Lynch, wanted by the entire underworld and on the run in the backstreets and rooftops of Shanghai. And play Fragile Alliance, the acclaimed multiplayer heist game based on greed, betrayal & revenge, now extended with more risk and more rewards. Get in, steal the loot, and get out in 4 minutes, but trust no one.

Not liking this trend, psn+ should be about free games not making demo’s elitist to psn+ subscribers.
Why does everyone else have to wait a week for a demo ?

This is why I am not a Playstation Plus subscriber. Downloading demos that tale up so much Hard Drive space should be optional. Automatic updates is a great idea, but to be forced to automatically download demos and videos along with it is not something I am going to pay a premium for.

Well I already have been playing a little bit of the demo for xbox, but it gave me motion sickness.

As for ps+ so far I have been very disappointed with it and wish I could cancel it, I do not recommend it for those who are on the fence about it.

@100 Actually I agree….I hate the idea of content being ‘pushed’ to my hard drive. If I ever do subscribe to Playstation Plus I’ll be sure to make sure automatic downloads stays deactivated. I want to control everything that I download. Next thing you know they will be ‘pushing’ advertising and spam to your hard drive.

Something didn’t work. I had Automatic Downloads turned on and set to run late last night at 4AM, my PS3 was turned off, but the demo has not appeared on my PS3. What’s going on?

One of the games I wish they would put on the PSN is Manhunt.

just played this demo . love the rough , edgy look and feel . the only thing i didnt like was the camera angle … way too near the character , field of vision seems very restricted … almost claustrophobic , but other than that I liked it alot. plenty of action … when you can see it .

Europe has the K+L 2 demo downloadable for non-PSN+ members. I wonder why they are able to download the demo without being a psn+ member and in America you have to be a psn+ member?

You don’t need to b a PSN+ subscriber to download the demo. Just go to the European psn store and download it without being a psn+ member. That said the demo is dizzying. It’s ok. I’m glad I rent games and don’t purchase them (except for MAG).
