Ape Escape racer demo released

One course, one car from latest Ape Escape spin-off can be sampled courtesy of Sony Japan.

Today, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan released a demo version of its upcoming Ape Escape-themed racer, Saru Get You: Pipo Saru Racer. (Saru Get You was the Japanese title of Ape Escape.) The demo is downloadable from the game's official Web site. It can be downloaded directly to the PlayStation Portable or downloaded to a PC first and then moved onto a Memory Stick later. The demo requires the 2.82 system software, which Sony released yesterday. The 8MB demo includes one circuit and one vehicle. The full version of the game will launch December 7.

Can someone print how to get to the demo on the site?

Pretty old news, I got the demo almost two weeks ago. I was a little dissapointed with it to be honest, while the game holds potential it just felt a little bland and very basic. I'm sure it will polish up well by release however, although it will never really be a true Mario Kart rival.

Cool Demo, but I think it's funny how Nintendo fans think GS is biased toward PSP cause their games get reviewed quicker, and PSP fans think GS is biased cause of unbalanced news stories. These people do their jobs just fine considering we all make mistakes sometimes.

Well said, Tanket92. GS editors are too lazy to get out there. Btw, Evan I'm expecing these guys get paid $7-14 an hour, which is pretty sufficient for guy who has to play games and write about it. Journalism itself by no means is an easy job, so if they don't like it, why are they doing it? The truth is, GS is the only site right now not doing their jobs right and it's a pity. Just watch when the PS3 and Wii comes out, they'll be all over the Wii like some feeding frenzy even if it means getting their fat butts off the couch to play some mediocre sport game.

lmao Tanket, if you were paid the amount of money the guys that are doing these articles are getting paid, then you wouldn't give a **** how old these news stories are. I geuss that's life.

oooold news gamespot... all demos work on 2.8 anyway, a simple google search for 'psp demos 2.8' will bring the list up (there's 10 I believe in total at the moment, including the cool new halloween locoroco!)

NP on the demo link, I think it's really cool that demos are downloads on the psp just wish Sony would make a site for them. no the Killzone demo is on umd it was in the nov issue of OPM and some retailers like gamestop/ eb games had them, also sony mailed out some to playstation underground members. And yeah GS need to step up their PSP coverage especially now with all the stuff happening for the PSP, demo downloads, camera, gps, connecting to the ps3, and GAMES.

retrouk "You cant print news if there isnt any to print" You're so misinformed. IGN, Gamespy, Gamesradar, 1UP, Gamesdaily and other sites have already posted many previews, screenshots and videos of VCS. Even the fansites have more info than GS. You don't GET news spoonfed to you, this is not journalism. If GS cared about covering this game, they would go to R* and find out more info. Either they're slacking off, or they have something against PSP or R*

GS is so slow and lame! They hardly give the PSP any coverage, there is barely any news on GTA:VCS. Pathetic.

Do the GS staff even check the forums? The Ape Escape Racer demo has been out for quite a while, now. And worked with 2.80. And people have hex-edited it shortly after.
