‘Killzone: Shadow Fall’ multiplayer demo dated for PS+ members

Though the Killzone franchise has been around for many years, there are many who have yet to play an entry of this exciting series and may be hesitant about Shadow Fall. Luckily, there will be a demo released soon after launch. (Killzone: Shadow Fall, PS4)

"Released on Dec. 28 and Dec. 29"

After Christmas? Not a bright move there. People don't want to spend money after Christmas. Make it two weeks before and bam, instant better seller.

... what about them?
-> Rated M for Mature.

On second thought... since the game is already out, I don't see how this makes a difference.
Not like many people are going to hold out for a demo.

its called a parent… how do you think they get to the store
IcicleTrepan  +   544d ago
It might be rated M for mature but.. that won't stop parents from buying it for their 8 year old. Now that PS4 comes with a headset that has a mic in it.. you will find out all about it when they tell you in their high pitched voices what they did to your mom on the weekend :D

Why not hit up both and still make it before Christmas. It's bad enough they hid this game all year long until the last month before it comes out.

I don't understand why release date on a Beta/Demo is important. If kids get a PS4 for Christmas, they'll have a few days to dive into other games before moving onto demos and such. No biggie.
FamilyGuy  +   544d ago
Yeah, you could also just watch a friend play it via live stream on the console and make a decision. Demo is definitely late to the party though. :/

"very dumb move"

they need to get the name out there to have interest in the game!!!

then they will ask for it as a gift.....Come on Sony/Gorilla Games GET THEM SALES!!!
FamilyGuy  +   544d ago
Dude the name IS out there, it's the PS4s flagship exclusive launch titles. It's got gameplay trailers running on PS3 kiosk around the country in every big store that sells PS3 and the ones that will sell PS4s. There's big ass posters in the PS game sections too.

People know, especial fans of FPSs.

why not release day? A man doesn't get why a demo for a game would come out so far after the game. If it's really good (as a man suspects this game is) then a developer shouldn't be afraid to show off. In fact, all PS4 should have day 1 demos or demos before release.

I suppose it depends how long of a demo it is. Sometimes, a demo can actually decrease sales. Especially if the demo is never ending multi-player.

As a consumer though, I would love a Day one demo! especially knowing how the wait of download and play is drastically reduced with ps4 "play as you download" concept.

But AFTER Christmas, more people will have the opportunity to get a PS4! Plus, with the holidays, there will be some time to actually play it.

already getting it anyways but nice them to do this if no has ever played KZbe4
refocusedman  +   544d ago
This is probably going to sell well regardless because to pickings are somewhat slim. As much as I love killzone, I have more than enough ps3 games to hold me over until InFamous.

I tried killzone SF at digiexpo and it was a blast! definitely checking this one out!
Sadist3  +   544d ago
Um, didn't Sony say that all games were supposed to be able to be played as a demo? What happened to that?
