Sony has said that Europe will not receive a God of War III demo with the Blu-ray release of film District 9.

"The District 9 deal is for the US only," a spokesperson told Eurogamer this morning. "We'll announce our plans for the GOWIII demo in due course."

Europe will also not receive the God of War Collection, which also contains the GOWIII demo, this year, nor a PlayStation Network demo before 2010.

Thankfully, however, PlayStation 3 games are region-free. The God of War Collection, which also contains 720p versions of God of War I & II, is released on 17th November in the US. Don't bother importing District 9, though, as films are region locked.

God of War III is one of many playable games (read our hands-on impressions of the demo elsewhere on the site) at the Eurogamer Expo this week. The Leeds leg is done, and the road team travels to London today for Friday and Saturday's show.

Tickets are long sold out, but you can keep up with the action over on the Eurogamer Expo blog.
