Old news, Dead Space had it as well.
Agreed old news indeed
Man I wanna play Dead Space now. I forgot about that game. It was so awesome
It's nice to see that thier utilizing the blueray disc in some profitable way instead of gimping it because of the DVD-9. Goes to show that EA is learning.
old like britney spears
EA has been taking advantage over that for awhile. Since DS. Too bad i've already d/led 99% of the demos they give.. if they gave some exclusive demos that arent on PStore.. then i'd be interested
then if they gave demos exclusively with other games, then somebody (someone like you) would wine about not being able to downloading it through the psn store...
true. all i mean by exclusive is maybe a longer demo then the psn.. or like what SQ did with Final Fantasy XII and XII demo. Its not like i go whining about it. (although some people do) But you know, its a thought. I bought Dragon Quest VIII coz of the FFXII demo. But i loved DQ VIII more than any other RPG ever.
as long as its something different, like a beta key for some other game, a longer demo, etc...then im all for it. From a business perspective...making a game demo exclusively available on another game's disc is a great idea... why? because of the logic used behind the profit possibilities. You see, sony (for example) would not bundle a demo of Resistance 3, with God of War 3 because gow3 is a game that sells on its own. Now, bundle the demo with a game like folklore 2, and it would be sure to boost its sales and at the same time treat many gamers to a great game (folklore).
Folklore is a great game, just needs more marketing and demo's in popular games seems like a great way to get ppl to try the game. Since some people dont want to waste the bandwidth/time d/ling games that they arent sure are that good
Some people don't have internet access. Therefore the only way for them to play the demos is at the stores(if stores put them up) or not at all! O_O Hell, Sony should start a service where you can order multiple different PSN games from Sony. You would need to pay for the cost of the Bluray disc, and then the cost of all the games you ordered combined. ^_^ Sony's leaving out a LOT of people if they don't do this.
the left over space on blu rays... i guess they just cant help themselves eh?
they have already paid for the bluray license... might as well flood the disc with demos and who know.. maybe in the future we will see cross game stuff like how EA did with golf/madden/burnout lastgen ... i would like to see that.
Old news,take this one down.
Lame, demos have been around for ages, even on prior systems.
Why the disagrees? Last gen had demos on discs, this isn't anything new.
lol why are people disagreeing with you?
because what you are talking about has nothing to do with this article...
its old but its still welcome though
Maybe this is old for some, but this is the first time i ever heard about it, it's not like I'm heavy on buying EA stuff. It's good idea and very much welcomed.
who the hell approves these most ea games have this *facepalm* @blu ray jibe: making something the xbox doesnt have and use it as an insult, classy
This is not old, The Godfather 2 is still NOT Available, so how it becomes old.. even it was not stated that The Godfather 2 has a Dead space demo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
but your article title says "PS3 Games Are Now Equipped With Playable Demos?" which means...if this has already been done before [which it has]... this is old news
People are fast clicking on this article!! 18 minutes and its already 160*, huh? So why are still so many people clicking on old news? ;)
Sometimes old articles make the top 10 read on the BBC News site.
I wasn't aware of this, but I like my disc pure i.e. not with demos (or trailers like a dvd movie). I can download whatever demo I want.
you don't have to play these demos or even install them to your hard drive, they are just there in case you want to play them. It has no effect on the game whatsoever.
No I understand completely, but I prefer that my discs aren't laden with adverts although I didn't notice this when I was playing Dead Space. Apparently that one had demos on it.... Still, pure.
They did that for PS2 as well..
I'm sure I remember playing Tony Hawks Pro Skater 3, and it had a demo of the Pro BMX game, that must of been like 10 years ago, and I wasn't forced to install then :)
but has anyone played this game yet? I gotta say, it really did not look that good. Graphics, camera movement, overall functionality. Please advise, I am considering renting it.
Guess it's good all that space is being used for something worthwhile
Yeah yeah Dead Space...same old same old
Weird, I never saw it on Dead Space. Was it only on the North American version or something? I got the UK version.
The Australian version doesn't have any demos. Probably US only, as always.
Am I rite?!
How come PSN games don't have trial versions like Xbox Arcade games have?
@Soda : another stupid post for your record. Most PSN games have trial versions. Now have a cookie.
was already on older games
their doing this to get around the fee of paying to have people download their demos on the store.
Yawn, how new ... EA games had this for a loooong time.
You are right. Lucky some devs are trying to utilize the Blu-ray disc on the PS3. Sweet!
What demo did DS have on its disc?
So does Dead Space for PS3 It includes demo for Burnout Paradise and Bad Company. but i think EA is the only company that's adding demo in their games.
Yeah, this might be old news for the US/Japan but my UK copies(I broke one with the help of my big dog)of DS had no demos on them. Nor do I recall buying any PS2 games from EA containing demos on the same disc. So for Europe maybe this is new? Whatever, didn't MS bundle a demo and beta key for Halo3 in with Crackdown to help support the new IP? I may be wrong but this sort of marketing isn't new-I recall getting a MH demo with my PS2 DMC3 but on seperate discs. The main draw will be, however, for those with no decent internet connection or download limits which can be very strict in the EU depending on your ISP. People in that boat won't get much from the PS store and this would help them see what's coming.
Driver 3. It had a Transformers game in it that became one of my most cherished games for PS2. The graphics were amazing too.
