I'm not sure whether or not it'll be released on the us marketplace but I reckon it will be. If it's not, you'll be able to download it using a UK account because I have a US account which I use to download US only demos, like NCAA.

I wonder if they'll have different demo's for different markets? Like a Wallabies one for our market and the Eng vs SA game for the Brits.

I doubt it. I don't think they'd want to show that they don't have the license for some teams (eg. All Blacks, Wallabies, Eagles).

My bad Stizz, I was getting it confused with the other game. Two rugby games coming out so close together will be as confusing as hell for some people (me being one of them obviously ).

Looks interesting.
