Thank Ya.... downloading it as I type!

There's a lot of guys (maybe gals too!) that are stuck at work just wondering. Can't wait for this game. The crashes look awesome.

I own a 360 and I'm glad we get demos to download from the Marketplace for free. But hasn't PS3 got a download service? I'm just wondering why they haven't got the Dirt demo today?

I mean. Good for 360 guys. Too bad for PS3 I guess.

BlackCountryBob3351d ago

I guess the PS3 wont get the demo for a while yet coz the PS3 version has been delayed for a while while the 360 and PC versions are out in a couple of weeks (but I guess why would anyone with a PS3 buy DIRT when they can have Motorstorm!)

yeh i was woundering about that aswell.

Leathersoup3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

The reason for the PS3 delay is that they need to port it to the PS3. It's not like they're licensing the Unreal 3 engine which I'm guessing comes prepackaged with PS3, 360, and PC build tools. The Neon engine was built by Codemasters and I'm guessing they need to create all their own build tools for the PS3. If this is the case, then the next Codemaster's title using this engine (I think Toca) will be simultaneously released on all platforms as the build tools will be already made.

After seeing DiRT, I think Codemasters is going to become a serious contender for all racing genre games. I don't believe I've seen better looking environments in a racing game. Ever.

InMyOpinion3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

Not quite right. The NEON engine was built by Codemasters in collaboration with Sony in order to get an engine that could be as compatible and utilize as much as possible of the PS3s power. It's a mystery why the game is being delayed on the PS3 (or is it...).

I'm sitting at work while my 360 downloads the demo.
Just need to get home, turn it on and play.

All is exellent, 3 tracks, 3 cars. Lovely visuals, not a jaggy in site! Nice lighting, great shadows, fabulous damage model! Framerate dips a touch now and then but is rarely noticable. Exellent sound effects, menu/gui screens is very flashy, a wee bit of loading between races but nothing on the scale of PGR (helps the fact you are given user stats instead of the usual "loading" screen). Most importantly it handles increadibly well. Forget the Motorstorm comparision as they are most defo different games, a lap round with the buggys on Dirt should be proof enough. My favourite portion of the game is the point to point part of the game, select the mitsubishi for this. All in all im very impressed. Hope this helps

I know this is asking much but some demos support multiplayer. I just wanna ram my mate off the track ASAP.

JasonXE3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

You lost me there because i need replay value. The game looks great and would of stopped me from buying forza 2. Sadly, the no multiplayer aspect to race against others just killed it for me.

If it does then I'll definitly consider buying it if more information is let out.

Damn this is downloading slow.
Normally I download from XBL and PSN with about 1MB per sec, meaning this demo should be down in under 15 minutes. Now its been going for 1½ hours and it's only at 50%.

Antan3351d ago

Was slow for me also, hang in there chief.

sjappie3351d ago (Edited 3351d ago )

I always cancel the download and then start downloading it again. Most off the time you get a 20-30% increase immediately and it starts running faster.
