2. Hope the videos come to PSN on Thursday... it'd be cool to watch them on my TV instead of streamed via internet

13. would be nice if they were on the disc. I'm hoping this is the best game ever.

14. A Heavenly Sword movie would be godly, animated, cg, or using real actors! Just give me a movie!

15. I think these are shipping on the game disc... If you let the credits run all the way through on the downloadable demo it lists extra credits for both the "Making of" documentary and the "Animated Series". I can't see why they'd include those unless they're going to be on the disc.

16. @ GAP Members, the video was going to be released to all today, however it was time released, meaning that we were the first to see it, before its releasal today, it had nothing to do with us being the only one to see it period, but we got to see it first.

17. HS got a 10/10 from play magazine

18. This style of animation reminds me of the show, Samurai Jack. Anyways this game is going to be great.
