I thought the demo was going to be playable once buying GOW -_-

@dboyc310

That would be like waking up tomorrow thinking it is Christmas. Too good to be true. I think they should have made it readily playable, as it would make God Of War sell so much more, and gamers would be freaking ecstatic.

Then again, the reviewers would be too distracted lol.

I havent been following this but...
I really thought the demo was on the same disc. That once you bought the god of war game it came with a voucher to unlock the demo from the disc and install to the hdd.

Demo or not...I'm still getting both games.

I'm a little disappointed but I'll live. I might just hold off from playing the demo because it's so close to release date anyway.
JRivera92  +   539d ago
What's the difference? You'd still be playing the demo either way..

You're not..serious, are you?
KwietStorm  +   539d ago
Yea really. Whats the point now..

God of War is a day 1 purchase for me, with or without that demo. I'll be holding off too. I've been waiting this long for TLOU, I can live with another two weeks lol.

@ GribbleGrunger

Yeah going to skip the demo too... -It's like what's the point in playing a demo so close to the final game, might as well just wait for the full game and play the whole thing...

-Just seems dumb to do a demo so close to release-

There is no need to be sad, I can lend you some of my X360 games to hold you over in the meantime. You can pick as many as you like from the picture below. Remember, I am here for you. You want a tissue as well?

Well you do have wonderbook on the PS3 right?
StrawberryDiesel420  +   539d ago
Who really cares that much? So many damn games have came out recently and there's still God of War and Bioshock for me. I have purchased Dead Space 3, Metal Gear Rising, Crysis 3 so I'm not worried much by this, I have a lot to play still.
KwietStorm  +   539d ago
Well certainly nobody here leaving comments cares that much. Definitely not the ones disappointed. That wouldn't make sense..

What about tomb raider? it's really good game ^^

What's the point of playing the DEMO if the full game releases in two weeks?
Bathyj  +   539d ago
i guess its for people who think the game might not be good.

which is nobody.
Donnieboi  +   538d ago
With the demo being delayed, and the fact that nobody has gotten to play it is starting to make me re-evaluate my hasty assumptions that this game is somehow the holy grail of ps3 exclusives. Seriously, I'm really wondering if this game is even ready to release, or if it really can even match the immense hype put upon it (gameplay-wise, of course we know ND always has tight stories and characters though). But not being able to play it 1st? I'll have to wait a week or so after it comes out b4 I feel comfy buying it.

But i'm sure people will disagree simply because i'm being cautious instead of jumping onto the hype train. Lately, I don't buy anything on day 1. Too many disapointments lately (Sims City, Diablo 3, Ninja Gaiden 3, etc).

If I wait a few days, I can get a better idea as to whether the game is right for me, especially now that we can't play a demo to get a taste before-hand.

This is bogus. I wouldn't mind because I totally would have prob played the Demo 18 times over before I even started GoW but the wait is ridiculously long.
clintagious650  +   539d ago
Wow i thought the demo comes with the purchase of the new god of war? Im still buying god of war but this kinda sux, i was wanting to try out the demo.
Bathyj  +   539d ago
damn, stop toying with me.

first i wasnt going to play the demo cos the game was out on my birthday.

then i was going to play it because the game got delayed and made it a longer wait.

now im not going to play it again because the game is out two weeks later.
DarkBlood  +   539d ago
so does that mean there wasnt going to be a public demo, i mean with it being close to retail release anyways
BLAKHOODe  +   539d ago
That was actually one of the selling points of me getting GOW Ascension on release day. I'm sure the game is great regardless, but I might just nix my preorder and pick up Tomb Raider instead now.. by May, GOW will be a $40 title.. plus, The Last Of Us comes out 3 weeks later.
x5exotic  +   539d ago
Bros before hoes.
first1NFANTRY  +   539d ago
please enlighten us what that has to do with anything?

OT: It's a shame the demo has been delayed again, but i guess there's still a tone of games till then.
Veneno  +   538d ago
Pimpin ain't easy.
PhiMattic  +   539d ago
First the game and now the demo...
Raider69  +   539d ago
I guess i will pick GOW a week before or the same day Tlou comes out,this way i most likely will get Gow cheaper and until then i will have Bioshock Infinite and other backlog games to play.Also need to start picking games at discount to put some money for the new consoles aside.New Consoles in the horizon means games will come down in price a lot faster this days,no need first day picking or pre order;its just a waste of money doing it this days.

Now i can resist to not watch the demo in the internet :)
I couldnt play it either because i dont hav the $ for gow lol
TronEOL  +   539d ago
I have to say this is incredibly annoying. I'm all for delaying games that are far off release to improve the quality, but this is supposed to be a demo. Just let us play what everyone else has been able to play. It clearly looks "done enough" for a demo.

Plus they have two different demos released now. The E3 demo, and the one that was released just recently.

There's our demo(s).

I'll just pass on the demo and play it when it releases. I was hoping the demo would release with GoW since I'll be working steady until November. But oh well.
BLAKHOODe  +   538d ago
This is clearly a marketing strategy. Release the demo in March, by the time the game comes out in June, the demo will be an after-thought. Our short attention spans will have moved on to something else by then and the demo 's effectiveness will have worn off. Release the demo 2 or 3 weeks before the game's release and it'll still be fresh on our minds and will inspire us to go buy the full game. It's all about the $$$$!
jetlian  +   538d ago
yea your right only problem is gowa no longer looks as attractive. It was week 1 when l thought demo was included.

Then when it was april 17 l was gonna get it around then. Now gowa is a buy in may which should be no more than 40 bucks
showtimefolks  +   539d ago
It's a day one buy for me no need for a demo
user7693958  +   538d ago
we are not the last of us..
glad to see there are more real gamers here! who can see quality ..

People just need a reason to hate oh a late demo I hate I now

But now we have seen enough and it's from ND so a demo isn't gonna make or break my decision
R_aVe_N  +   538d ago
They can keep the demo I would rather just wait for the full game.
Soldierone  +   538d ago
I wonder what they found that they need to fix to push back not only the game, but the demo as well....
kingPoS  +   538d ago
Well I can't say I'm disappointed, seeing as I already have the game in question pre-ordered.

Don't Demo's usually come out a few weeks before a release anyway?
BioDead  +   538d ago
Makes me wonder do I want to download the demo or not. 2 weeks is too short time. I'm really looking forward to this game and I have pre orderd it so I want the full experience at once.
They really should've keep the original date!
Plagasx  +   538d ago
Oh COME ON. I might as well wait to the play the actual game with a fresh experience now...
PersonMan  +   538d ago
Take your time Naughty Dog. I want to be blown away.

Since the game's announcement, I've only ever seen the reveal trailer. I've avoided everything else that has to do with this game. I want to be truly surprised by this. I haven't even looked at screenshots since the announcement.

It's going to be like the old days where you just pick up a game and play it without any prior knowledge of the game.... where the only thing you know about the game is what is on the cover.
