201w ago - While it may have been missing from this week's PSN Store update, the Heavy Rain PS3 Demo (nearly 2GB in size) is actually available there but hidden.
Here's how to get your code to give it a test run, from dreamfall via Kotaku:
Upcoming psychological thriller Heavy Rain won't be out until February 23. The game's demo is not scheduled until February 11. Today is February 5. So what, let's get the demo.
Sony has launched a Web site called "Precinct 52", an alternate reality game of sort. This ARG asks players to submit four pieces of evidence.
For those who want to play the ARG, stop now.
The four pieces of evidence are:
• Short cigarette (117b)
• Origami bird
• Coffee shop C (it says "diner")
• 117h (tyre tracks).
Be care about which coffee shop you pick as there are several, and you must submit the correct one to get the code. Likewise, the writing on the "tyre tracks" is difficult to read.
For those who do not want to play the ARG and would like to submit the correct evidence (at least, correct at time of publishing) and get the demo right now, continue.

Here are some extra codes I have, they didn't work on my North American accounts. One did work on a EU account though, but here are the other two I didn't use. Oh yeah, 2 codes for a Home shirt too, remember EU accounts only.
i haven't played the last game from quanticdream so i havent ever played a game like this and the hype from heavy rain didnt inffluence me but i found that this game is just awesome, i played the demo two times but i found it great its like watching a movie following your instructions its just great.
Just to clear things up, this does not work for US psn store use, don't ask me why since i havent figured it out yet (actually i didnt care...lol). if you want the demo create a EU account & input the code in the redeem codes section of My Account.
