When will we see the Journey demo and Sonic 4 Ep 2 demo in the store?
It's already on the US store, so why not the UK/EU store?
Just curious as to why when the USA & UK share the same primary language.

UK, US, AU, NZ, CA, ZA. all share one core language BUT are Not all in the same REGION so do not share Content or DLC evenly..
Publishers have to Pay specific costs for EU region and get regulators and EU LEGAL done seperate to North America.
UK does not share the same region as US but does share the same region as 22 other PSN stores.
Publishers are not under any obligation to spend any money in any regions they don't want too to release a demo...
Dont like it. To bad, nothing has changed since PS1 demos.
EU Localisation Costs Stop a lot of Full game content even releasing in EU, Never mind just a demo.

I'm fully aware of the region setups, didn't think as much legislation got in the road.
Surely Sony can help to do something about it or provide an opinion as tbh it's a pain not being to try games like the 2 mentioned above before purchasing.
I come from the days of old school pc gaming where everything worked regardless, consoles as well you just had to make sure you knew the difference between ntsc and pal, which I know continued until the ps2 was replaced.
Being in the EU really does make it appear that we get the bum deal in comparison with the other regions.
