Microsoft has just announced that Xbox Live demo downloads of Too Human have passed the 900,000 mark. According to Microsoft, this makes it the most downloaded action demo on the Xbox Live Marketplace.
Evidently its been downloaded more than just about anything else to date.
And ur commenting on this...why?
There are like 10million xbox live members at the very least. 900,000 download a FREE demo and Microsoft feels the need to announce it. At least there aren't announcing the number of achievements unlocked in the first 24hrs:D
I agree... .__.
It's "within the first week." It's still worthless information.
They really outta stop over hyping a mediocre game....
Hey DJ, I thought you knew but this site is full of useless information : )
@DJ- If it is worthless then why are you commenting on it. Back on topic, MS may feel that people are highly anticipating this game due to all of the demo downloads. Does that actually equivilate to gauranteed sales, no. Also, they maybe hyping up the game to ensure the hoopla and generate more sales which would make any developer happy. A happy developer means more games will be on their way. Game on...
People hate it but they keep on playing it and downloading it
850,000 likely deleted it soon after. because the HDD is limited. uh, yeah. but this game was in the interest of many gamers because of the love/hate thing in the media so a lot of people were curious how this game was. it just went Gold so hopefully the full version will be good.
That's because you assume most of those 900000 actually have any idea about the controversy. It may seem evident to you and me, but remember that a large majority of 360 owners and live subscribers have never visited a site like n4g, joystiq etc. Most people just go "hey there's a demo to download". On topic: I think it's the most downloaded ever becuase its been the only one available for quite some time. Also, 900000 out of what? 20 mill? That doesn't seem like a lot to me, more like 4.5%, aka: nothing. Love it myself though.
Converting the demo downloads to sales is another matter.
Yup, I agree with that, but is this artice about sales or talking about the demo?
How they spin it to " most downloaded ACTION demo on the Xbox Live Marketplace " err ok
Yeh that must mean its garnered more attention than Devil may cry and Ninja Gaiden.
A spin on words. Here's a spin; People download Too Human more often because they're curious as to how much the game sucks. The game sucks so badly, every 360 owner spreads the word so that their friends can experience the suckiness that is "Too Human". Too Human to date is the most disappointing Action Demo yet based on the sales of the actual retail copy of Too Human. See, I can put a spin on it too.
Awesome! Not many demo's make it into the top 10 most played games on Live so it's a good sign that people are trying and enjoying the demo. I do hope it converts into sales for SK. Loved the demo! Buying the game. F the haters!
DMC4 and Bioshock demo pulling this kinda attention. After playing both those demo's I was sure I was buying the game... and same with this one. DEMO's FTW!!!
But this game wont sell 1 million this year. Maybe next year but I doubt it.
Want to bet? ;)
Now hope that those that got it liked it enough to buy and not hated it enough to tell their friends. All I've heard is bad stuff about the game, I have yet to play the demo and I still plan on getting it cause to me it looks cool.
Out of all my mates with 360's I was the only one looking forward to TooHuman. Turns out all my mates really like it and i'm the only one who doesn't. I wont slag it off I really liked the style and story. It's the controls that I don't like.
or you hate it. most people hate because they simply don't like the genre or they go off what their buddy said about the game who doesnt even own a 360 :/
Its funny isnt it?
Are playing this demo than there are people playing all PSN games combined.
You don't know math do you?
Which is almost as many people as your mom serviced last night plus the times you had to send in your broken and overheated 360. DERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRr!
Icewake...I don't see how this is such a big deal. I would rather see how many people will actually buy this game and how the reviews will fair rather than hear this drivel. I don't see how exactly this is news to begin with when we have yet to see how the game fairs when it's released in August.
@Icewake - haha! good one... This is good information because it shows people are interested on the game and the attempt from sony leg humpers to make people lose interest on the game is failing...
Denis Dyack and Gabe Newell ftw!
Fatasses FTW!!! Sorry if I offended anyone.
Too me Downloaded demo stats are useless.. I dont know how many times I DL a demo and just deleted 2 min later.. I mean its just a Demo, People are gonna DL just to try it out
confused with live arcade demos. Like I u I delete demos off my 360 also without playing them but that's because my 360 is set to automatically download the trial version of arcade games. If you go thru the hassle of finding a demo like Too Human, downloading it, then deleting it without even playing the game to get a feel for it. You got a lot of time on your hands buddy.....
Why is it so much popular than other demos then. It's obvious that a lot of people are interested in the game.
its free and you want to see what the game is all about . Why Microsoft needs to tell us this I don't know .
Its pretty terrible. Game play is just boring.
Thats not even 1/10 of the xbox live userbase.
to be honest im suprised,many people were dissing this game before the demo came out,now some people like it and it has high downloads..if the final game gets high reviews it will sell alot.
I've always been one to love the games that dont get the attention they deserve Psychonaughts, Shadow of the Colossus, Viva Pinata etc.. I'm even really looking forward to Brutal Legend. As for Too Human, I do not understand what people see in this game. I'm one of those people who downloaded that demo. I hated it.
Title is inaccurate. Microsoft said that Too Human was the most downloaded action title "in its first week of availability." Not all-time.
I guess reading the article wouldn't hurt .... "It seems that Too Human has struck a chord with Xbox Live users and has passed the 900,000 demo download mark. According to Microsoft, the demo has "been downloaded more than any other action demo on Xbox LIVE Marketplace in its first week of availability and has been one of the top played titles on Xbox LIVE overall."
Brutal Legends got canned.
It did not get canned. It just needs a new publisher. http://www.joystiq.com/2008...
I'd Expect the figure to be a hell of lot more seeing as there aint anything else to play But when they say 900,000 Bots have downloaded this demo Is that supposed to be impressive It's less than 10% of the Bots dumb enough to pay for live So the Headline should read Only 10% of Bots have Downloaded Poo Human Just goes to show how crap it is
Good or Bad ... it will sell 1+ million copies on the 360
And pirated 3 million more on teh black-maketz.
comes with being on the 360 ...
"action" demo but how many action demos are there? basically it means this download figure is crap and this game is a flop! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH A!!!!
This is gonna sell a lot.
ps3 droids trolling as usual what got no games to play
whos the troll again? arent you the one who goes to any positive PS3 news and fill it with your "this game is lame", "this game looks better on the 360" and your usual "even though this game is a PS3 exclusive and my sh!box cant play it, i still tell myself it sucks"
Wow, a troll calling a troll a troll for calling him a troll in a thread he trolled.
Droids... more people have downloaded this demo more than you dumb sh!ts have bought games. http://vgchartz.com/games/i... HAHA proof
vgchartz as proof? how clever...
Got anything better, anything at all that combines sales data for games? No? then shut up and take it
i would retort back, but it will just go through your retarded little head
It's because you don't have anything, kinda like your PS3 game collection. You droids crack me up, you love VGC when it favors the PS3 but cry foul when it's not. So... be a good little droid and take this 900k demo downloads and shove them right up your a$$. Here is some vaseline for lubricant... opps my bad you don't need any.
lol, whats your collection like? halo? just a hype machine mass effect? glitchy and laggy as hell bioshock? a bigger and better version is coming for the 360 forza? 2 words gran turismo grays of war? like your laggy 8 player games?
You just named 5 AAA games, and forgot about 5 more and thats not counting whats next. Soon you can add Too Human, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Gears 2. BTW your right the better version of Bioshock is on the 360...:) Thanks for helping me pwn you, have a nice day...:)
What a joke you are you knob job. I bet you're like 16 and you go rage all over N4G because your parents limit your video game time to an hour a day. Eat a chode and croak biatch.
42 games that sold over a million on 360 and PS#3 15 games sold over a million. Remember in year 2 of the 360's cycle 29 games sold over a million.
The more the demo is played the more likely the game will sell, it's that simple(not just played but craved). PS3 fanboys need not hate...
this has nothing to do with all the controversy sorrounding the game and that we haven't had a decent demo for a while? This game is gonna sell and it's gonna be fun but I don't think it will be all that it was cracked up to be at first.
This game is good at least imo. Many others think so as well. But really these numbers don't prove anything...Sales numbers are what will prove anything if anything at all.
I can't wait for 09/19/2008. This games was once ment for my PS1. Now it has been fully realized for the XBOX360. If the Demo speaks in any way of what to expect from the full game, then [email protected] it PS3 fan bring on your gauntlet of hate and wish death on this 360 exclusive as much as you want. This game is no Haze!!! B!t(#'s!!! Every time I hear PS3 fans hate on this game I want to Kill the messenger. 300 style.
Yeah I'm new to this site but I definitely see a lot of hatred from the sony side. I see them comment more on 360 articles and ps3 sales articles than actual game articles. Strange.
... and it is sci-fi Diablo. It's addictive. It *will* sell 1 Million + I guarantee. I know when a game has "the touch" and this one brings "the touch" --- they have captured Diablo and thrown in some crazy-styled Sci-fi that's on par with Mass Effect. This game will be a massive success and it is a very important title for 360.
They have a true sci-fi Diablo style game and it is legit. This game will sell massive, and all the 360-hating in the world cannot stop it. It will sell 1 Million + I guarantee ++
