Man... the PSN is slow as hell. It's going to take hours to download this demo... well, the reason it's so slow is probably because everybody's downloading this demo.

Of course, the site's not working for me so I guess it's not a huge issue.

I wanted to play the game, but couldn't because of their US restrictions in Home w/the shirt

What do you mean about the restrictions? Are you saying you cannot play the demo itself, or that the Home shirt works in the EU region only?

Downloaded at 1MB/s for me. Took all of 15 minutes or so.

Amazing! Thanks for this, February 11th felt way too far away to try this out haha.

Nooo~! The moment I click register I get "Timed out" error. Damn it! I'm going to keep retrying though.

I'm not a huge fan of the controls, but

Well, I finally got it to work--it's downloading as of now. I had to use my EU account to redeem it, I should note.

Thanks for the link OP! I had registered a while back for the ARG but only began to play then got sidetracked. Can't believe I missed the post on Kotaku though....

The site took a few refreshes, but I got in just fine. Keep trying...

I don't know how, or why for that matter, but the code went through fine on my default US account... I'm downloading now though, and it's a little under 1.5 GB

Forgot I had already made a PAL account on Heavy Rain website a few weeks ago for the Home T-Shirt.

What's not loading up for me is the third clue, the coffee shop, its taking FOREVER to load. I've been waiting for like five minutes now. :bomb:

And I'm pretty sure the codes are unique, otherwise someone would have posted a code already for everyone else to use.

What do you mean by "generic Home code?" I tried it my US and EU accounts, and got the invalid code message on both.

Try it on a PAL account; it won't be invalid on there. It seems it's 50/50 on giving codes that work no the USA store, but 98% seem to work on the PAL store.

Downloading as we speak, on a U.S Account just to test it out. It still allowed me to download. So the codes from Precinct 51 definitely allow you to download on either U.S or EU Home.

He's probably talking about the Exclusive Heavy Rain Shirt for EU Home. It won't work in the U.S

So if I'm reading this right, as long as you can get the damn site to load, you will be able to actually get a demo to play when you finish the whole clue section?

I really need to play this, because it's coming out way sooner than I thought it would, and I have an Amazon order that's hanging in the balance

Not sure what the problem is with my end (I don't think it's my connection, did a Speedtest on my PS3 and speeds were normal) but it took 23 seconds to download 1MB of Pulse. I normally wait until late Thursday or Friday to download stuff because it's faster if I wait but it's now slow as hell for me at the moment.

Not like it matters though since the website's still not loading for me.:bomb:

at last after 2 yours of sweat and tears (not really) I finally got the code.

Oh and I had to redeem it on a European account. My US account said it's invalid. The download is 1754 MB.

Hrm. The code that it gave me isn't working either:

"The code you entered may not be correct or may no longer be valid."

Is there some kind of delay between the time that they give you the code and the time that it's activated?
