A demo for EA's boxing title Fight Night Round 4 has arrived on the Xbox Live Marketplace and is now available for download.
This is why I wish I had a freaking 360..If this doesnt appear on PSN today im gunna be pissed off..
Yeah, it sucks. The Fight Night demo for PS3 comes out next week. They announced this a while back.
Well after E3 im getting a 360 anyway, to avoid dissapointments like this...
usually get its stuff on Thursday? I don't really remember, as I'm usually a day or two late on downloading demos for my consoles. But anyway, it should be available sometime today if so, depending on where you are.
it should be on when the store gets updated later today. played this a few weeks back cus of the pre order anyway. It's not bad but i decided to get UFC the other week. obv v different games but i decided to go for an all round fighter as a pose to boxing only + this game gets released a few days before i go away on holiday so may pick it up at a later point when i'm bored and its cheap
What you think of UFC? I got it the other day and have been having a blast with it. Very surprised how good the game is
yeh its gd but it's pretty hard to get used to at first imo(i hate the ground game and thats where it usually ends up :p) but i think thats part of the fun. cus the more you play it, the better you get and theres a lot of depth to it. Fights can be nice and tense between two evenly matched ppl
This demo is off the hook! Hitting live at 700+ megs. The graphics are incredible and the music is off the hook! I loved Round 3 but Round 4 looks to be insane! If PSN gets the demo I will give my comparison.
LOL you are getting a 360 to avoid disappointment... do you see the irony in this, hopefully you wont be disappointed after your 360 RROD's.
i dunno no what the big deal is at least yall got the Marvel vs capcom 2 demo first
noo its today for PSN aint it? 28th!
Ive heard otherwise...PSLifestyle said its June 4th. This apparently came from a EA press conference...
yeah iam sure its coming today for psn had the demo for xbox for a while now all need to do is download the demo's and put them on dvd's
Only for Gold Suscribers... What's the point really? Just losing customers IMO.
Losing customers? Quite the opposite, trying to get silver subscribers to upgrade to gold. It's an effort to gain customers, not lose them.
Mr Face Creamer just got face creamed by Fishy Fingers.
Ha, not really, just trying to explains MS thought process behind the idea. You cant really lose a customer when they're not actually playing for anything in the first place (silver being free). Still I imagine the disagrees are for being straight up rather than writing something like "Yeah M$ is the devi1 zomg!"
lol yeah I know, I just wanted to say that.
most games have demo's the same week for both live gold and psn tbh. this is just one of those exceptions
yeah dammit. I want the demo, oh well I'll find it online and put it on a DVD.
I was only saying that ever since I became a silver member, I've noticed I've been missing out on loads of demos, betas and themes... At first I thought my Gold suscription wasn't really that important. But after NOT playing online for 6 months I have to say I miss playing Halo 3 or some Battlefield: Bad Company .
I played it 2 weeks early doing this. Same with Resident Evil 5. http://digiex.net/consoles-... The load times can be somewhat longer, but hey, it's better then waiting next week. Or you can create a new account and you'll have a free 1 month of XBL.
Actually, they're potentially losing customers that might be triggered in buying the games after playing the demo. That's what demo's are ultimately for (no, they're not to offer us gamers some free goodies unfortunately...it's all business/marketing/publicity). I guess it would depend on Silver members being willing to upgrade for the sake of demo's, which I think only a small percentage is. Obviously, Silver members still get to play the demo a bit later, but at that point it's pretty much out of the spotlight and risks being overlooked...thus attracking less potential buyers.
Anybody want to tell me how it is when they play it? I'm at work now so i wont be able to touch it for about another 9 hours.
Yeah I had a match with it. It's pretty awesome. It's way more fluid than round 3.
It's a pretty nice demo. Like UFC, you have only two characters for 2 or 3 rounds but it's quite enough to taste. The gameplay is pretty intuitive, it's really nice visually, without any problem irritating the retina (like aliasing). The game has nice wounds / blood / sweat effects and flesh managing. I only know i will never buy it, despite what i could say, because it's not my kind of game. But it's really nice.
I know it's obv a demo, but i don't think 3 rounds is enough to really sell the game cus lets face it, if your in a 12 round fight, you're gonna have to be tactical cus u don't wanna wear yourself out in the first few rounds. and thats where a lot of the fun is at, but when you only have 3 rounds to play with you can't get a proper taste of what the actual game will be like imo.
PSN has to wait until June 4th for it.. http://www.thatvideogameblo...
thats pretty unlucky for ps3 only gamers. at least the games not out untill the end of june though. i got the pre order demo a while back though so doesn't affect me :p
dude the visuals in the demo are wow ... i dont like commenting on sweaty men but this looked very good ... the cheeks really react like how you think they would react to a punch... its pretty short though
So going by your logic watching boxing is gay ???
no dude boxing isnt gay ... two guys beating the sh*t outta each other is far from gay .... however talking about how great their body and sweat looks its kinda pushin it ..
"The download weighs in at 784 MB and is exclusive to Gold Members." I think it'll be for silver and on PSN around E3 in a week.
But we said No Thanks leave it untill next week We Got InFamous to Play So we let the BoTs have it a Week earlier cause they Got Nothing else To Play Now Say Thank You !! Thy Silly Little Bot
loooool hahaha oh Nelson M your classic the entertainment value you provide sometimes is just too much
HAHAHA Nelson, typical Droid. nothing better to insult with than the same old nothing to play on the 360 argument, yet the library for the 360 is bigger than that on the PS3....
Well NelsonM, NasiM's retarded cousin I have the inFamous demo on my PS3 and while the aiming is better then I expected it when seeing the early footage, its not everyones game (sandbox) plus its well allright and thats about it. Score is coming down with more reviews pooring in, on 8.5 is it now right? I'd rather play a FNR4 demo, then inFamous the full game. Because its simply more gaming fun. Oh and get your bucket for the tears out for next week E3 as I know Microsoft will have some nice surprises again to make you all go over N4G and the forums crying like with FFXIII last year: "I'll sell my PS3" moaahahahah
always saying how ps3 comes out good in the end even though they got nothing good to look forward to really if infamus that great quit trolling and go play it !!
http://thepiratebay.org/tor... To anyone who wants the demo and isn't a gold subscriber here ya go.
The controls sucks! I am going to cancel my reserve on this game. I played fight night round 3 then round 4 demo back to back and the control is significantly diffrent. I tried all the settings and could not get any where near the same response as I had in round 3 for round 4.
initially I thought that too. But man it grows on ya and I love how you need to gauge distance now to effectively throw quality punches. So no more of your buddies taking Ali and standing toe to toe in the middle of the ring and exchanging inside bombs w/ Frasier. IMO I also think the counter system is better than the parry system of FN3.
The responsiveness will increase there was a story on here like last week that said that the development team is going to improve the controls (but will not add buttons). The build in the demo is from like late march/early April.
The graphics look great but I don't like the controls at all. I don't think you can change them either.
O_O Holy Mother of God FINALLY!!! :D im right off to XBL, consuming this masterpiece of a boxing game demo everyone who Loved Round3 or who loves fighting games should get this day one!!! EA... YOU MADE A GOOD JOB HERE... atleast this time ;-) *i kid, i kid*
But i think the demo looks great, HOWEVER, it just didn't grab me like FN3, i just cant get any punches that i think wow i did that, as hitting to the body and head is so close together on the stick its just annoying.and i cant get anywhere near knocking them out due to them just clinging on everytime you go to hit them to finish them.Like i say, it may be just me but fighting against Hatton is just crap as he comes at you like a windmill and you just cant get in the centre of the ring and jab or dance around him, its just not smoothe enough for me. JUST A DEMO THOUGH, plenty of time.
Demo is pretty good, but I hate the total punch control thing. Does anyone know if you'll be able to use the buttons like FNR3 for throwing punches in the full game?? If not, I think I might have to give this a miss.
plenty of time??? you know that this game is supposed to launch in less than a week?! i almost never used the stick to throw punches in FN3 (except "stun punch" and "flash ko")i always changed the button configuration but now that you dont have it as an option (and first i thought it was a bad idea) but so far (after some time gettin´ used to it) i think its really good of course theyre trying to push the analoge thing as much as they can (it was almost the whole concept about SKATE) and if its done accurate it can work in games first i wanted to have the option to use the face buttons....but now.... yeah....if its coming...ok....and if not....its fine too either way i look at the game...its just stunning!!!
this game comes out june 30th
btw this is supposed to be a simulation! (not a knockout mayhem) if youre looking for an arcade type game go get "Facebreaker" or "Punch out" (both not my cup of tea) ...or Ready 2 Rumble!!!(The King of Arcade Boxing!) and that they are clinging every time you try to knock them out just shows the good A.I if you ask me (thats what i almost every time do when my mates try to knock me down ;-) :D and they hate that :D ) you know that you can push them away?!...ANYTIME you want to! (so i see no problem with that) it is harder to knock them down (its just 3 rounds, Hatton and Pacquiao) but if you plan your punches wisely you could easily knock them down every round (just like in FN3)
But if its a simulation i think that there should be more of a breather between punches. It's hardly realistic when they stand toe to toe every single round throwing punches, hardly ever moving around the ring. It happens with some fights i know but i hoped for a little more picking of punches and less brawling thats all.Still gonna but it.
The demo is great, 60fps confirmed! The graphics are clean and controls like a charm. I'll check out the PS3 version if it comes to PSN to decide which system to buy it on.
dam im at work oh wait ill download it from here i left my xbox on so ill go download it directly from xbox.com when i get home it should be done dl'in
and I was still playing Round 3...let me go download it.
