SouthPeak Interactive have confirmed with Electronic Theatre that a demo version of Section 8 will arrive on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace shortly after the European beta begins, currently suggested to be trailing by about two weeks.
Smart move to have a demo. I hope it's not purely a multiplayer demo.
I thought this game was mainly multiplayer oriented. So I'm expecting a multiplayer demo. Edit: @IrishRepublicanArmy. It's only on X360 and PC. There are no PSN or PS3 logo on the game's official site.
There is no PS3 version in development, it was purely a business choice by SouthPeaks and had nothing to do with MS. But there may be a PS3 version in the near future.
this should be at least somewhat good. This is being made by Time Gate Studios. Who? "TimeGate Studios’ first foray into the realm of first-person shooters came in October 2006 with the release of F.E.A.R. Extraction Point, an expansion pack for Vivendi’s horror game F.E.A.R (First Encounter Assault Recon.) F.E.A.R. Extraction Point was named “Best Expansion Pack of 2006” by PC Gamer. TimeGate Studios further propelled the F.E.A.R. series on the PC with the release of F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate in November 2007. The company released F.E.A.R. Files, a combination of both expansion packs, for the Xbox 360 in November 2007 as well."
Demos are always a good idea. A lot of people might overlook a game like this, but if it is any good people will be able to see that by playing the demo. The time control mechanics actually sound pretty interesting and the game looks like it will probably be solid. I will have to give it a shot when it shows up on the marketplace.
I think this is something like what Unreal Tournament was. Not sure though but it's from what I've heard around the net.
It's geared to be a multiplayer focused game - even the single player will be pretty much jut bot multiplayer like UT i think - and it was named as an MS exclusive months ago. It looks pretty generic, art style similar gameplay similar. They seem to be going after the halo crowd but you won't be able to trap them with this sort of ploy. Big fail predicted, Big surprise would be nice.
This is more like tribes than anything else. But then again I wouldn't expect a lot of you people to know that considering that wasn't a PS3/360 game released in the past few years.
Ill be giving it a try
Everything ive seen so far looks like a Haze/Halo 3 knockoff, but ill try the demo anyway, might be a sleeper hit :P
Excellent.Another trash game that will be the biggest flop since Too Human and Halo 3.
You're a great example of how the bubble system on N4G is a failure. You've never contributed anything to this site but your trolling and bashing on 360.
Read his BIO he's a young teen there is no doubt about that.
He's just pissed because this game used to be listed as 360/PC/PS3 and now it's a Microsoft exclusive. He comes in to alot of Section 8 news, has been ever since the PS3 version got cancelled.
I love jealousy.
Well its not, cause your in denial if you think section 8 looks good, their nothing cool about it please name one thing about section 8 you are looking forward too. It just looks extremely mediocre but I will check out the demo and hope for the best.
Thank you Giant Enemy Crybaby.I approve this story now.One more thing,360 sucks.
"You're a f*cking section 8" Just got that quote off Cliffhanger.
Some life you must have! Creating accounts to "doom" 360 owners. We're all shaking in our boots. No really, I bet your just as cool in real life!
Your probably right kingdavid, he is as cool as an annoying kid that nobody likes
This game reminds me of tribes a bit, which is cool. Hopefully it turns out to be good, if not, well then at least the droids get some new whacking material.
This game is a sleeper hit. They realy want this game to be good, most games don't have an Xbox Live beta but the ones that do come out ok.
It should score 8's or maybe a 9 IMO
To be honest i don't think this game will get critical acclaim. I guess we will wait and see.
the game is very halo-ish ... actually a smart move on releasing a demo ...
Looks more like Tribes
Isn't Southpeak a Microsoft first party studio?
Never mind, I got it confused with Big Park.
How you do that ? lol
South Peak sounds like South Park. Big PARK.
Section 8 looks like a mix of Tribes and Halo. It has potential, but there are several titles that look like they have "potential" and turn out to be mediocre. I'm on the fence with this game.
Am I the only one who is tired of shooters? I mean this game looks fun, you can drop in anywhere you want but man...unless they come up with some really abnormal guns we've never seen before, you can count me out on this out. I just get tired of shooting at people.
I am sure your talking about FPS.I am also tired of FPS as well.
Yes i love my fair share of FPS, they use to be actually still are my favorite type of game but i still miss the old games like Medieval or Conkers type games, and Banjoo Kazooie types too. Adventures yet awesome lol
I will never get tired of FPS games. Ever.
I will be 80 years old, telling my great-grandson to run down to the game store and get gramps a copy of Call of Duty 47. lol
I'd never get tired of shooters. If that happened who's to say I wouldn't get tired of video games all together.
I got tired of shooters a while back, took a chance on oblivion, lost near 100 hours. Shooters are popular because of the gaming demographic, but the market's cluttered with them - sadly the top shooters are also orders of magnitude better presented/developed than some of the others. I played timeshift, enjoyed it and even got folk together for some MP but it failed hard due to it's time of release - sadly so as it had some great weapons and mp game mechanics. What these games need is a low pricepoint and a resonant marketing exercise - otherwise they'll just be lost. IMO publishers of these titles should take them to digital distribution to increase the chance that someone would just fire it up off the interface instead of choosing to remove halo/cod/killzone and put another disc in instead. Could work. Did for battlefield.
yay..for the demo.
Why does it look like a PS2 game?
http://cache.gawker.com/ass... http://static2.videogamer.c... You were saying?
Don't feed them.
cool another retarded 8vs8 online game for thrashbox. GO get the PC version it'll probaly have 32 or 64 players including mods and no broken servers like thrashbox.
Well, it will probably do better on pc. But you got to give these guys credit for not wasting their time on ps3.
If they hadn't wasted their valuable time on thrash60 maybe the ps3 version which sadly they didn't have the balls to do , would have had a big 32 player along with smooth gameplay as its PC version. But since developers are sold to the devil they joined with 360 so their game get wasted by its limited capabilities.
so how was HAZE on PS3..I heard that one is still a PS3 exclusive.
Hey at lest haze seems more hardcore than this. My haze doenst mean i like haze u stupid bot, always trying to say the stupidest thing on this site. Do u even know what haze is??
another butt hurt, retarded PS3 fanb@tch. Go write a blog about it why dont you.
"But you got to give these guys credit for not wasting their time on ps3."
Best comeback if ever heard one.
Game looks good. I had my eye on this title, we'll see how it does.
All the sony fanboys really need to stfu. As for the bots, they should really stop saying that every exclusive on 360 is going to be a triple A tittle. Let,s be honest here most of 360 exclusives are not triple A.
So by your definition inFamous is not AAA..it has a score of around 85 at metacritic...there goes your theory. Anyways, looking forward to check out this game on my x360..along with Risen, magnacarta 2, and Ballad of G@y Tony.. Only thing I am looking forward on my PS3 this year is Uncharted 2 and Lord of the Rings Blu Ray.
I agree, uncharted 2 is all that`s left. The droids seem to think an old 360 game and a 6th ratchet game is a big deal...it`s not.
uncharted 2 is all the ps3 has for the rest of the year that i want to get for my ps3. it's sad really, i thought 2009 was going to be the "year of the ps3"....guess in the mean time while i wait for the "year of the ps3", i can play great looking/playing games on my 360. makes the wait a lil more bearable :) poor droids
Im under the impression that it is the 11th Rachet game if you count PSP versions. Now thats milking a series
