Buy God of War: Ascension, Get Last of Us Demo

If you’re frustrated waiting until May 7 to try Naughty Dog’s upcoming kinda-zombie title The Last of Us, you’re in luck (kind of): Sony is offering an early demo of the game for anyone who purchases God of War: Ascension.

Don’t expect to fire up the demo, like, right away, though — or at least, not right away as in March 12, the launch date for Ascension. According to the Playstation Blog, Ascension owners will get access to the demo “when it becomes available at a later date.” That suggests it could be, basically, whenever between mid-March and mid-May.

According to the Blog, you’ll get access to a “chapter” of The Last of Us when you buy Ascension. When you fire up the game, you’ll find a menu option that will tell you how to get hold of your demo.

But here’s the question: Will this factor into your decision to buy God of War: Ascension or not? Let us know in the comments.

It’s a great bonus, but I can’t say that a demo would ever factor into my decision to buy a game. All the excitement behind Ascension has revived my enthusiasm for the whole franchise, and it’s made me want to play through the old games again. That’s why I just threw the God of War Collection and God of War III in my Blockbuster @Home queue. Being an employee of DISH, I try to be knowledgeable on all the different services and products we come out with. So when DISH released Blockbuster @Home, I gave it a try and I’ve been incredibly happy with it ever since. It’s a subscription service kind of like Netflix and Gamefly rolled into one. So no matter how many movies and games I go through in a month it’s always the same price. Plus it’s saved me a ton of money because I used to let my spending get out of control—at $60 a pop it’s not difficult to do—but since I only rent most of my games now it’s freed up my budget a lot.
