Um, they made two demos that were televised during the past two E3s. They could easily put either of them on PSN/XBL. They could also use the opening part of the game, there are many ways to go about it without any spoilers.

A suspicious and weak reason like that seems they are just afraid to let gamers try the game out before they buy it, which is not a good sign at all for the game

Only one way to explain it.. They are LAZY Devs.. I can see that already because Lara can not swim..

ShugaCane1202d ago

What's so cool about swimming ? I mean.. If there is no particular level that requires you to swim, why would you want to swim. She can't fly either, is that terrible ?

Zechs341202d ago

I have to agree. Lara Croft. From Tomb Raider. Cant Swim?

Mind blown.

The Devs said that there is no reason for her to swim as in no lake, no river, no ocean... i doubt that they would give you plenty of water and then let her drown on contact as many other game heroes do. If there is plenty of water and crossing it would make sense in context it would really be dumb but that remains to be seen.
The demo exuse is really lame though. I played it at GamesCom and I don't think they have reason to hide.

cause they don't want Gamers to find out Tomb Raider is nothing more than a bunch of QTE and some really simplistic gameplay.

Nothing of the adventure and exploration of past Tomb Raider games!

This. Not comforting is it?

i played a demo at EGX late last year where Lara climbs a plane, finds a bow, shoots a deer and then sits by a fire, hardly major spoilers for the story.
they could put that out as the demo.

I am not excited for this game anymore.

CaptainPunch1202d ago

Played the demo at PAX, they could of easily released it on PSN and XBL. No excuses.

No demo no purchase simple . No demo means they have something to hide !! .
