Wow. Thanks for the information. I will definitely be getting this game now. I love equipping armor and customizing my character.

One more dumb question: the combat in this game is real time?

yes, it is real time.  it's an action RPG.

when fighting with other games who invade your world (as a black phantom), it's like playing Ninga Gaiden Sigma

^yes, it's action/rpg, and you have an arsenal of moves at your disposal, and they change depending on the type of weapon you wield, and your ability to roll gets better the lighter you're equipped with. Certain weapons can be wielded 2-handed, and attacks change. Power attacks are possible, and those too are different depending on the weapon. You can backstep and launch a trust attack, roll in all directions, backstab (sneak attack, and there are items and magic to help you improve this type of attacks), you can use some weapons like spears and mailbreakers while guarding too. It's pretty complex.



Should hold out for the American version, or should I just buy the asian version right now? If so, what if any reason will convince me to get the american version?

^If you're interested in the OFFICIAL Guide, then you should wait and buy the DELUXE Demon's Souls version. That one will sell (and it's been pre-ordered) for $69.99., it also comes with a slipcover. If you pre-order any US version you also get a bonus soundtrack CD and art book (limited quantities for these, not ALL pre-orders will get this 100% guaranteed). The difference between versions (the Asian and the US version) are minimal, mainly grammatical corrections, some words changed here and there, nothing major. The US version will only be able to play online on the US servers (instead of the asian servers), so if you care about that, well now you know. Also, the US version won't be able to use saves from other versions and viceversa. There you go, make up your mind, and get the game, whatever version you choose you'll be getting a great one, and the best RPG this year for any console.

Looks like am getting the deluxe version, I don't want to be out of my depth in the asian servers with the hardcore players.

 

Thanks bro.

I wish they'd announce a EU date already!

Update: August 24, 2009
Demon's Souls is sold out again. We expect to restock again within the next 1-2 weeks. Demon's Souls has surpassed Metal Gear Solid 4 as our top selling PS3 game ever since the console was released a few years ago. We'll probably sell a few copies of the domestic version as well so cumulatively, Demon's Souls will probably stand in position as our top PS3 seller for the foreseeable future.

This is from the popular New York based importer NCSX, taken from their Asian Ver. Demon's Souls page. Between this place and play-asia being chronically sold out, it sounds like a good number of asian and korean copies have been sold, and that's well deserved.

Sorry, guys after looking at videos, reviews and impressions from your guys. I couldn't let the epic that is Demon's Souls slip me by, so I just bought the asian version.

^just couldn't wait one month , huh?


UPDATE: My Knight "Gutz Hellbrand" is now at Soul Lv. 134 Woo-hooo! I did EVERYTHING in a single playthrough, pure white/black world tendecy all events, and pure white/black character tendency (got my friend's ring, yeah!).

Looks like I made a right decision, hopefully if this does get released in the Pal regions I will buy that aswell.

 

Edit: I've decided to pick the wanderer class, what are the pros or cons of that class.
