TheGameReviews tackles current rumors: Ghostbusters cancelled, FF XIII demo charges, and Rockstar taking over Max Payne all investigated in today's edition.
that would suck if they charge for the demo
It's not that much different then taking it on to a game or preorder... I wouldn't be surprized to see it happen...
Just buy Advent Children: Complete. It comes with the demo. Oh wait you don't have a PS3.
Oh well you get what u pay for Right? As for me I'm buying it! & if U don't want to pay for a Demo no ones forcing you to just wait a little bit longer! Most Die Hard FF Fans like yours truly will buy the Demo cause i'm sure they will buy the Game as well. So their my Gist for the Day from the 3bubble Genius signing off!
Saw the trailer for the MP movie last night, it looks rad
Well that would not be surprising. I mean isn't the demon almost 2hours? Well i guess they thought they could do the same thing as Gt5 demo or beta,Gt5 is a demo somehow right? Wondering how much it will cost though. If it's like gt5 30-40bux then i don't think so!
SE know they can charge for it as the franchise is so big just like Polyphony Digital can charge people £20 for what can only be described as a glorified demo. (Yeah the prologue has more content then most full retail games but compared to GT5, it really is a demo which we are paying for, PDF are getting money and making us pay for basically beta testing the game)
I am not a big fan of racing games but alot of people are obsessed w/GT. If people are willing to pay, someone is willing to sell. I agree with your complaint about Polyphony but who can blame them if so many people are willing to give their money away. I would not pay for a FFXIII demo even though FF is my favorite series. But Square/Enix knows that a lot of people will pay, and their right.
No, Ghost Busters is not canned.
just me i know i'll get hated on, but i'm looking forward to SIXAXIS ghost wrangling more than attack item magic summon skip no doubt FF will sell better and get more acclaim than Ghostbusters, but i'm a child of the 80's and i miss movies like Ghostbusters and Blade Runner etc.
I hate you ;)
Since when companies charge for a demo? i mean the demo its to give the public and idea of how the game is going to be, its like paying to see publicity of coca-cola or pepsi.
This does not make sense. We all know Square is desperate for money--Yoichi Wada had a big come-to-Jesus with all the developers and told them to make games that WOULD MAKE MONEY. Fine. However, if they are desperate enough to charge for a 2-hour demo (and please don't compare this to GT5:P, which is smaller than the full release, but still a huge game), then why on earth haven't they remade or rereleased FFVII like they've done for every other FF I-VI? Pick your platform, but come on, people. If charging for the demo is true, this is a new level of laziness from Square.
What's going on with Ghostbusters anyway? First they lose the publisher, next there's no news about anyone else taking over, and now the pre-orders are cancelled? Something's up.
i love ghostbusters
Always nice to see a rumour you reported to be viewed as "likely" D:
Ghostbusters is not canned. i just walked by the area today, and watched people play the PS3, 360, and Wii versions of the game. it's looking good, but still needs a lot of work. i think at the moment they are trying to get everything completed so they can shop it around to potential buyers. (i work at Vivendi, now Activision, by the way)
That's great to hear!
it's one of my most anticipated games this year. even if the game sucks, the fact that the fabulous 4 are actually lending their talents to the script, voices, and likenesses is enough to have me buying it day one. i actually got to see a guy playing it on a 40 inch HDTV, and it looks excellent. they just need to tweak some gameplay, and it'll be good to go, in my opinion. i doubt they'll have much trouble finding a publisher for it. i mean, it's GHOSTBUSTERS! even if only HALF of my generation buy the game, it'll be a success.
Seriously, it'll last over two hours, and no one is forcing you to "buy" the demo unlike LIVE...want to play online to download other "demos"? 50 bucks b!tch! On other note, charging for themes = embarrassing....
I was born in 86' but woa,the ecto1 and that car from Back To The Future was my favorite cars ever. . .until the Dodge Viper GTSR came along lol
Uh Ghostbusters is not cancelled. The developers have come straight out and said those words. They just need a publisher and sources indicate that there will be one announced within a few weeks.
