Silicon Knights boss Denis Dyack has confirmed to VG247 that the Too Human demo has now been downloaded over 1 million times.
Poor Xbots Poor Xbots, Too Horrible hits 1 million critic failure. Poor Xbots
Poor Us Poor Us, you escaped from jail. Poor Us
Only Xbox 360 has the biggest titles these holidays with many AAA titles to look forward to in 2008. Too Human is undoubtedly set to be one of the biggest hits of the year both commercially and critically, with the master direction and vision of legendary developers Silicon Knights and the visionary talent of Denis Dyack Too Human is set to become yet another classic in the Xbox 360s unbeatable lineup. The hype for this game is immense as Xbox 360 consumers and enthusiasts alike are anticipating the release of a blockbuster title which will become another new exciting IP in the Xbox 360s lineup, far more exciting than Sony's pathetic attempts to combat the Xbox 360s domination with shameless copies of Xbox 360 IPs with 'God of War' 'Resistance' and 'Killzone' With games like Too Human, consumers will undoubtedly be selecting the Xbox 360 as their console of choice for this holidays, which will be reflected in hardware and software sales domination for the Xbox 360 over the inferior PS3. The fandroids love to hate this game simply because they are jealous of how brilliant, innovative and revolutionary Too Human is. They see all the amazing titles on the Xbox 360 and are jealous because their PS3 has no good games on it and all their exclusives were commercial and critical failures. I really can't blame these fandroids either, if I had to spend all day playing Lair and Resistance I would be jealous of Xbox 360 owners as well. With the critical and commercial success of Too Human in 2008, there is another reason to Jump In and purchase an Xbox 360 these holidays
Do you write speehes for a living?
"Too Human is undoubtedly set to be one of the biggest hits of the year both commercially and critically" lol "far more exciting than Sony's pathetic attempts to combat the Xbox 360s domination with shameless copies of Xbox 360 IPs with 'God of War' 'Resistance' and 'Killzone'" lmao! "With the critical and commercial success of Too Human in 2008, there is another reason to Jump In and purchase an Xbox 360 these holidays" ROTFL! dude keep going, your hilarious!
Every DEMO on Xbox 2 hits 1 Million. WHO GIVES A CRAP. i DL crappy JP PSN games i cant read do i get a medal? porn get Downloaded lots too... wow news.....
you forgot to end your post with a sarcasm tag...wait this post was sarcasm right?
I hope it gets enough sales for a sequel. It really is a great game, and if they can improve the camara and other minor flaws and improve on the story (that imo sounds like a great story). We would have ourselves another great franchise. That is for those of use that enjoy great games, and not which console it comes out on.
From the pre-orders I have at my store it is looking to be a good seller, we have as many pre orders for this game atm then we do for NHL 09 and In Montreal, NHL 09 is huge. I feel positive for a sequel, there is as much good buzz as there is bad buzz and that is good. Say good things, say bad things, as long as you keep talking about it.
you do know that it is a trilogy right? and it does seem like it will be a great game. First time: Hated the demo second: liked it third: loved it fourth: loved a little more That is exactly how it happened.
they'll be carrying on with the trilogy idea if it flops.
They had part two underway long before the first one was finished. They will take all the feedback from the first one, and apply it to part two and will have part 3 underway before it launches.
lots of my mates say it sucks,some times demos hurt games, wait for the scores as it hasn,t had much feed back from the gaming press
It has gotten some decent feed back from gamers, but I guess to some the gaming press is god right?
I didnt like it. Combat Wasnt smooth enough for my liking. I read somewhere about some previewer who didnt like it at first but it grew on him. Id say it isnt taht bad considering its more like diablo than NG like. Could be a good game, but im more for combat over a balance between combat and RPG elements. I think the reason I didnt like it was the right stick attacking, but Ive been playing NG 2 alot so that could be why it was weird. If you more interested in 3rd person combat only, try NG2, its the best combat in any game ever. If you want proof find someone who beat it on an easy mode like warrior, and play through part of the game after its been restarted with all the weapons maxed. Flails/tonfas/kursi-gama are some weapons which are worth mentioning, since the others have all been covered. If the combat in NG was any deeper we'd all drown in it(even ryu who can run on the water).
I see the media has brainwashed a few more into thinking the medias opinion matters. Video games have hit mainstream, now is not a good time to trust video game reviews. As for Too Human, well Eternal Darkness was clunky and had some issues, but I loved it just the same because of the atmosphere and the story. Im thinking I may feel the same for Too Human. Ill give it a rent.
Facepalm.gif is all I can say.
The issue is the game is hyped but the game isn't worthy of said hype. I personally downloaded it, removed it and then a buddy came by and asked about it so I downloaded it again. Yes I deleted it again. Saying a million people elected to download something that is free is quite meaningless. Especially considering the fact that for many Xbox owners downloading is one of the few free features available to their online service. Dyack is praying right now. He acted like an asshole to too many people, he was an arrogant jerk and then at E3 a few years back had his legs hacked off. Deservedly so as he trash talked other games and other developers. He felt the backlash and he knows everything hinges on this launch. The only thing Too Human has in it's favor is the fact Too Human launches right at the end of a gaming dry spell. It is one of the very very few exclusives MS has the holiday season as they are buried under a mountain of MAJOR MAJOR PS3 titles this fall and winter. Ah the 360 isn't what it used to be but then again it never was what it was thought to be in the first place. Football players always look tougher when there is no one to tackle them. MS doesn't get to sprint down the field with no opposing team this year and the linebacker out there breaks running backs in half...and he plays for Team Sony. TH had better get their licks in quick because a few days after TH, Mercenaries launches and TH will be forgotten and relegated to the bargain bin.
Hey morgan, DarkSniper showed me a video of the game while we were chatting on the PS3. That game looks terrible man...it's like a shameless ripoff of Ninja Gaiden, God of War, and Devil May Cry rolled into one. xDDDD
juuken, My first issue with any game is always the story. There are PSN and Live Arcade titles where this doesn't apply, but in a major game like this it certainly does. Once upon a time, back when Too Human was planned as a massive 6 disk PS1 title, the story of Too Human was one of morality and choice. It really made you question, as a handful of Science Fiction films such as Ghost in the Shell and Bladerunner have, what it mean to be human...and would you trade that humanity in order to save humanity. Then something went awry at SK and the entire cyberpunk story line was gutted and replaced with the current lifeless Nordic form. A horrific waste of an opportunity. Oh well I can always read Neuromancer, Count Zero, or Mona Lisa Overdrive. (Yes in the proper order) Graphically the game's biggest hindrance is the camera. I have spoken of this before and will continue to do so. But even worse than the camera is the fodder that is supposed to be a stand in for the AI. A lot can be forgiven in a title but the two biggest, story and AI are the cornerstone essentials and without them the game completely falls apart. Anyone that thinks the AI in TH is great, well, that says something decisive about that persons level of intellect or leack thereof if they think the entities in TH are lifelike. "Rowbots iz dum!" Little can be said for the AI with you either. The combat is just repetitive as hell. And I mean mind numbingly repetitive. Play one section you have played it all. Overall, when I think about TH, the words of Will Rogers and what he said about communism come to mind, "It's a nice idea but it won't work." And it doesn't. People that are buzzing over this title are very easy to pick out. And they refuse to admit when it is bad. When Haze was released I played it and then I was blatantly honest about what kind of game it was and the fact it barely qualifies as a game. TH is no different.
Good thing I haven't gotten my 360 yet because if I had it and I played this demo, my sanity would have died. O-O
A mountain of PS exclusives this fall, Morgan? I count five- Resistance 2, Little Big Planet, MotorStorm 2, SOCOM and the much anticipated Buzz Quiz TV. And the 360 has Fable 2, Infinite Undiscovery, Viva Pinata 2, Gears of War 2, Too Human, Banjo Kazooie 3, Tales of Vesperia, Left 4 Dead, the GTA 4 DLC and time exclusives of Rock Band 2 and Last Remnant. By my count, Sony is outnumbered 10 to 5 (counting time exclusives as a half game). So will you admit to being wrong in your theory or will you come up with some irrelevant facts and call it a day? My money is on the latter.
And Mausenheimmer, you forgot about Valkyria Chronicles. That's a PS3 exclusive. And you can't really call games exclusives if they're timed. Also, GTA DLC isn't a game. Most people have forgotten about GTA. Damn, talk about massive fail.
Valkyria Chronicles is coming out in Spring 09, not Fall 08. My point remains the same no matter how you spin it. The 360 has more exclusive content coming out sooner than the PS3.
juuken, whatever Mausenheimer had to say disregard it. I put him on ignore weeks ago and have been happier for it. With an avatar from a game that was a better elevator simulator than a science fiction title, what could he possibly have of value to say. http://www.youtube.com/watc... BTW, I already paid off Valkyria. I definitely have to get you on my friends list. When Resistance hits the 8 player Coop is going to be a blast. Sweet having a game that doesn't expect to cheaply pass off the single player game as the Coop. And if you haven't seen the E3 trailers for Ratchet and Clank Quest for Booty and Ragdoll Kung Fu catch them. Had me laughing my ass off...My money is there.
So now download hits are considered big news again? I mean seriously its like trying to brag that haze is awesome because of how many times it was downloaded on PSN. And like I said I thought the demo was good and it seems pretty fun but then u go on forums and u see alot of negative remarks of the game. I personally think it will be a pretty good game but hearing alot remarks from others who say they dont like it is my point saying that a number of downloads for a game isnt always a good thing because u forget to add that some of those people wont enjoy it as others. That is all im pointing out. Another example is Madden 2009, I can bet u there was more then a million downloads for that demo aswell and alot of people seem dissappointed. See where im getting at? :)
I`ve seen a lot of positive remarks, I guess it depends where you go. And the only place I see you going with that Madden comparison is that a million people downloaded the demo, a lot of people are dissapointed, as usual, and it will sell be the butt load anyways.
The reason this story is news-worthy (in my humble opinion) is because of the months of widely spread criticism Too Human has endured... even with the countless nay-sayers, it has still logged over a million downloads.. this can be attributed to a lot of things, but nevertheless, it's still a good beginning. There's actually not that many titles that get over a million demo downloads... comparing this to something like Madden is not logical, because most football fans are downloading Madden not to decide if they're going to get the game, but rather, they just can't wait to start playing football again... I will say that I could be wrong, but that's just my take on it.
No matter what though seeing that I enjoyed the demo quite a bit, I might just pick it up since I hear it should be a long game aswell. Hopefully Silicon Knights delivers with too human.
You seemed to click the link and comment so you must of found it newsworthy enough. How is is this any difference from a Walmart or a Amazon PS3 hits #1 stat? If you don't like it don't click on it.
It's refreshing to see someone respect other opinions... good on ya.
why are so many people desparate for this to be a success? it's not as if the 360 is short on titles.
I can understand the developer's and MS's desperation if that is what it is. They have put much time and money in to this game. As gamers we all should hope for an extraordinary experience with every game regardless of the platform it is on.
"why are so many people desparate for this to be a success?" Actually, the opposite is true. People (PS3 owners and bitter journalists) are praying that this game will suck. It's rather sad, actually. Luckily for me, Too Human is awesome and I will be buying it on day one. I could rent it from Gamefly, but I loved the demo so much that I will be buying it outright.
"I can understand the developer's and MS's desperation if that is what it is" WTF?, gamers habbits being reported is desperation?. Record breaking activity or close to it are always reported, Arcade games or retial games and even DL content. lol
Despite PS3 fanboys opinions or "supposed" 360 fans hating it and saying they downloaded it numerous times is irrelevant to what the numbers are saying in the bigger picture lol.
@ power of Green Read my comment again. I don't think SK and MS are desperate. I do know they want a return on their investment as would anybody. As for the demo, I downloaded it once and played it four times. I did not like it but I'm not bashing it either.
do they really have to update us everytime the demo reaches a new number? how many times do you see devs touting the number of demo plays their game gets....no offense, but you can get 10 million demo plays(which happen to be FREE to download), but the sales are the ones that really count
get too excited...... Demo downloads don't always turn into game sales...
It's true that downloads don't always equal sales, but it is never a bad thing to be the most popular demo on Live ever.
I was going to download this too but I couldn't be bothered to unpack the Xbox.
I know the feeling. The last time I turned on my PS3 was to download the 2.42 system update. Can't wait for the next one.
I havent even gotten the 2.42 update yet. I havent connected my PS3 to the internet in months, I would play MGS4 for a couple of hours but go back to COD4 on Live. I never even tried MG:Online.
looks like God of War to me, but not quite so fluid... beaten by a PS2? surely not
One Million people need to get laid.
Can't argue with that, demo downloads or not. We should always want to get laid.
So says the troll... I fail to understand how Downloading a demo prompted you to say that. I guess you don't download demo's lol.
whos the troll POG?
I don't download demos, i go get an orgy. ;)
Why the disagree? Who doesn't want to get laid? They must prefer self love.
...And once again, how is this news? Let me know when one million translates into sales for this game. Lol, and the disagrees. I mean, seriously, do we have to know every five seconds who's downloading the game from who isn't?
we get stupid news like "MGS 4 is out of stock on Amazon" ...pleaz ! who cares ?! Is that news ? No ! But I dont see you complaining. At least complain for both if you want to complain.
Because that was *actual* news, since some people here like to claim that nobody's buying the PS3 and it's just a bluray player. The way they're bragging about the download of the game, you'd think they were desperate or something. Please LaChance, I wasn't born yesterday. This game is gonna to turn out real bad. I've seen someone play it on my PS3 and it looks HORRIBLE.
"This game is gonna to turn out real bad. I've seen someone play it on my PS3 and it looks HORRIBLE."
"This game is gonna to turn out real bad. I've seen someone play it on my PS3 and it looks HORRIBLE." I imagine it would! lol But whilst MS use of the figures may be questionable and a pretty obvious marketing ploy, the figures themselves are newsworthy simply because they are as VG247 states "a Live demo record." As for: "Because that was *actual* news, since some people here like to claim that nobody's buying the PS3 and it's just a bluray player." Well given your opinion on Too Human, your own logic would also deem this news! lol Ie. Some people like to claim that "this game is gonna to turn out real bad" and not gonna sell... All good mate. ;)
Ya rly! Well Super...this may turn out like Haze. You either loved it or you hated it.
I know what you mean. I've seen someone play Haze on my Xbox 360 and it looks HORRIBLE.
I don't think it will be like Haze. Haze was universally crappy. It sold poorly (only 350k copies sold worldwide) and was reviewed poorly. Only delusional internet fanboys liked it.
There is not way in hell the numbers got that high without XBL's "tell a friend" feature. Gamers are recommending this title to eachother on a massive scale.
I downloaded the demo, played it, said "ehh.. kinda stinks" and deleted it. About a week ago I went back and downloaded it again because people kept saying "It really is good just give it a chance, give it a chance" so I played through it again and was still disappointed, deleted again. I don't understand the hype for this game really, I've given it a chance and I just don't like it...
I was not impressed with the demo myself. Just not my cup of tea.
Mr. Dyack is trying to get paid from predicted sales & hype. out of the million who downloaded it. 5 xbots like it. dyack is gonna be heart broken. He might kill himself. Who knows what kind problems people had downloading too. M$ always juke the numbers & cook the books to look good. I almost feel bad but then I don't. the game sucks. Anybody wanna play mgo later tonight?! Im running a deathmatch in the tunnels! Evening. psn: MAGNUM-RAM Oh wait I forgot about uncharted trphies
Hey juuken I agree this is not news just like how the Metal Gear Solid 4 Bundle selling out is not news these are forum posts
1 million Too Human Demo downloads or 1 million stool flushes Take your pick, both deal in $#*t.
this game is going to be terrible, the fighting mechanics are horrendous.
Sadly i don't have my xbox any more, hoping to get a new one but when i get it i'll rent it. i never liked to listen to previews or game scores i always like to judge the game myself, that way i don't get disappointed if it doesn't live up to the hype, i mean i enjoyed the haze demo i thought it was alright a bit short but it wasn't bad to me. Most people have never tried the Too Human demo and because of what they heard in magazines and on the internet they automatically assume that the game is going to be rubbish, give this game a chance! If you don't like it fair dos if you do congrats.
I am sorry but the ONLY reason why its hit that many downloads is only because all of us have been wanting to find out how the game actually is and if any of the people who downloaded it and dont like it like I do then nope aint gonna be 1million or more sales.
That is just a theory and can be applied to any and all games as if more people were following TH than any other game on the platform or any other platform for that matter. EDIT: Dissagree?, why because I think some people actually like the game and haters wan't it to fail?.
