Yakuza 6: The Song of Life Demo Removed From PSN

Yakuza 6

If you’re looking for the Yakuza 6: The Song of Life demo on PSN, you’re out of luck. While the demo was released onto the PlayStation Network as of yesterday, there was an issue with it. Mind you, that issue was very good for gamers, not so much for Sega.

What happened was that the demo actually had code for the full game. Gamers quickly found out that they were able to continue playing past the previous set restrictions. Obviously, Sega wasn’t too thrilled about this happening and pulled the demo. No word if those players will be able to retain their saves when the full version of Yakuza 6 is officially released.


Someone’s head is going to roll because of this.

There is no ETA on when the demo will return. Sadly, if you were looking forward to checking out the demo, this is nothing but awful news. I didn’t get a chance to download the game. Despite my PS4 being on and telling it to download the demo from the web browser.

Ironically, it reminds me of when ID Software put the entire game of Quake onto a CD and gamers was able to unlock it as well.
