Demo will contain two scenes from the game.

'Beyond: Two Souls' will be available to the masses on October 8th, but a week before that Sony will release a demo on PSN. Even before that, on September 24th, Sony will offer some kind of early demo access to selected PSN users.

From Sony, "Today we can confirm that the Beyond: Two Souls demo will be available on Tuesday, October 1st on PlayStation Store. There will be opportunities for a few of you to get in on September 24th — we’ll be announcing those soon.

"This demo will include two scenes from the game, giving insight into the extraordinary story that awaits you next month. This will be the first chance for most to go hands-on and experience the improvements Quantic Dream has made to Heavy Rain’s control scheme.

"The Beyond: Two Souls demo will feature the following two scenes from the final game:

"Jodie & Aiden: Join a very young Jodie as she takes part in an experiment at the Department of Paranormal Activities. As officials put her abilities to the test, you take charge of a mysterious, invisible entity.

"Hunted: Skip forward a number of years and help Jodie escape the clutches of government agents as the mysterious entity unleashes its truly astonishing powers."

Quantic Dream's games are not exactly mainstream, and are heavily dependent on their story for engaging players. Sony's decision to release an early demo suggests some kind of confidence. Previously, Quantic Dream's games have enjoyed greater success outside of North America, and Sony must think that a pre-release demo will help sales more than hurt.
