It would be great to have playable demos though. With his new position it shouldnt be too difficult to pull that off.

Agree. I buy more games base on demos than I do based on reviews.

Thanks Phil!

Lets make it trend!

Lol you're a glutton for punishment.

There's more chance of Vanilla Ice making a comeback than that being a trend. But by all means, try.

The X1 (and PS4) need more demos. Obviously the games library is quite thin at the moment but demos are a great way to gauge whether or not to buy the full game.

Now watch how Kojima releases a demo of Ground Zeroes (which is basically a demo) with a timed play limit of 0:06 seconds. (I bet you could rescue one of the guys anyway in that time lol).

This isn't QUITE what he said. Yeah he said he would like them, but he also pointed out that these types of demos generally start from the beginning, which might not be the best part of the game. He said he was in favor of Demos AND game trials....although reading this, I think he's more interested in Demos than timed trials. (looks like the title was changed).

Its in response to a lead in question, not something he came up with himself.

Which otherwise would be a concern given that a timed demo would be no better than a timed exclusive. business as usual.

Nevermind that demos never fully represent the full game.

Here comes negative Nancy strolling into an Xbox article again.

I dont possibly see how any of this is bad

Godmars2901564d ago

Can you even make an effort to present a counter argument? Show me in all those massive twitter paragraphs where Spencer is doing more than responding positively to a suggestion?

For that matter why, when we have full on games being released which are incomplete, a modern demo would represent one? Wouldn't only be a resource drain.

And here comes debbie downer to piss on all things Xbox. I commend you for your dedication.

Godmars2901564d ago (Edited 1564d ago )

And he's a parrot...

I mean seriously, there's not putting any effort into a comment, and then there's what you did.

Phil Spencer want's timed demo's and more demos on Xbox One... so do I :P

But I think that will be hard for developers when the main focus of this gen from gamers and media sites has been how many pixels there are on each multiplat game :/

MegaRay1565d ago

Believe it or not.
It was fun to count how many pixels in CoD ghost

(Be4 I get disagrees it is a jk, I dont even buy CoD or like it)
