Timed Exclusive Dead Space 3 Demo Hits Xbox 360 Today

A quick reminder that if you signed up for the Dead Space 3 demo you should, this afternoon, get an email with a code in it. That’s also assuming you’ve got an Xbox 360 (the demo is timed exclusive) and an Origin account, as you’ll need both.

The demo is expected to roll out to the rest of the world (well, PlayStation 3 owners anyway) next week. Hopefully this exclusive window doesn’t mean that there’s a gulf in the quality of the game for other platforms.

The demo is a 2 GB download. (Dead Space 3, Xbox 360)

I'm not saying the game won't be good. Although I have my doubts unfortunately. But going through EA conundrum to play it a week or two early doesn't sound like a good time.

The demo give me one feeling...the same feeling that I got when I tried the RE6 feeling for the first time....and it's not a good feeling

Shame this franchise had to go down so fast, hopefully it will die off before it becomes as bad as RE

I only played the single player demo on normal but I don't really know if I like it or not. It's also the exact demo of the first gameplay they showed from e3.

I thought the demo was really, really easy. I don't know if the main game is the same difficulty though. The boss would seriously just run around, not at you, and attack every 30 seconds or so. This is not like the brutes or enemies from past games that just ran at you until they killed you or you killed them. The human enemies never hit me with one bullet but normal may be too easy I guess. I might replay it on harder difficulties to see it it's just easier in general since I beat past Dead Space games on their hardest difficulties.

The weapon and suit customization and upgrades also felt very overly complicated to me with multiple types of resources needed. However, machine guns aren't really that big of deal imo since they would take almost a whole clip to kill one normal necromorph. I can also live with universal ammo.

It takes you out of control of your character more then past games which is very annoying too.

It wasn't nearly the same departure as RE6 was to past RE games. However, it does not feel like the natural evolution of the series either. It feels more like a spin off then anything to me.

Are Microsoft seriously still doing this?
Anyway looking forward to trying the demo out.
testerg35  +   841d ago

HarryMasonHerpderp  +   841d ago
Timed exclusivity sucks whatever the console.

I think the horror elements were exclusive to the older games because Dead Space 3 doesn't have it. It's just a mediocre run & gun shooter now. I'll have no problem skipping this (especially since Sly Cooper 4 releases on the same day).
Ron_Danger  +   841d ago
If you've got a vita when you play Sly 4, you can hold it up to your tv like an x-ray machine and search for hidden treasures... It looks awesome!!

Timed exclusive demo, so as a 360 owner I can now look to demos early? I think timed DLC is bad enough, if they are going for exclusive... MS should keep it exclusive like the ps3 did with far cry 3 and assassin creed, and not for a timed demo, what a wasted chance
Godchild1020  +   840d ago
I wonder if Sony pays more money to get exclusive content that will stay exclusive or is it Microsoft that pays more money for content that is exclusive for a limited amount of time. Not a troll comment, just curious.
KrisButtar  +   840d ago
I know your not trolling as I've seen your comments on others topics and usually agree with you

The way I have been looking at it is sony pays for the exclusive say x dollars but MS only seems to pay half of x dollars cause it is timed and not exclusive. To be honest I don't remember any exclusive DLC for the box recently just for the ps.

I think if MS is going to fork out money for timed Exclusives why not throw the extra amount in to have it as a box exclusive. Why get things half done.

I would personally think that the prices for exclusives would be the same for either company, it's just a first come first serve. Likely

Graphics was pretty dam good in the demo and co-op was fun....
Bar_Brothers  +   841d ago
People still use Origin ?
Ezz2013  +   841d ago
really ?! ... timed exclusive "demo" ..really ?!
cleverusername  +   841d ago
Do they seriously think getting a demo a week early will make people buy 360s? Or is this the best exclusive they can get these days?
Godchild1020  +   840d ago
No, but that timed exclusive stuff might get those people to buy the game on the 360 and not the PS3. Which in turns mean more money in Microsoft's pocket or account.
KrisButtar  +   840d ago
Yes I see them doing that with call of duty, as then you have to pay for xbl to play online.
cleverusername  +   839d ago
Nobody's going to be swayed into buying a 360 because it gets a demo a week early!
Godchild1020  +   839d ago
@cleverusername, I didn't say anything about buying one system over the other. I said the timed exclusive content (Demo) would get people (who already owns a 360) to buy the game on that platform and not the PS3.
