Fatal Inertia Demo Not Actually Coming To PS3 Tomorrow

Despite several blogs and sites confirming that there's a demo for Fatal Inertia due for PS3 tomorrow, this is not the case at all. There was clearly some confusion from the press release, but the official PR only mentions an Xbox 360 demo for FI, not a PS3 one. Confirmation from Koei that this is indeed the case at the link. (Fatal Inertia EX, PS3)

Good one ;)
Captain Tuttle  +   2906d ago
What's up...
With the PSN and the lack of demos? How many are available? 4?
Watkins  +   2906d ago
Just out of my head, I could come up with 15.
The Darkness
Heavenly Sword
Resistance: Fall of Man
Ninja Gaiden Sigma.
Def Jam
Some Baseball game
Virtua Tennis
Formula 1
Riiiiiiiidge Racer!
Everybodies Golf

Might be one or two more.
Let's hope we get another demo this week!

Cool Watkins...
Thanks man. That's not too bad then.

Have a bubble.

NBA 07 or 06 or whatever too isn't it? as well as the best demo of them all...dynasty warriors: Gundam, which is one of the worst game/demos I have ever come across in my entire life...

but yeah the demo situation isn't too bad...but we do need a lot more...Lair and R&C are rumored to have demo's coming very soon...Lair was hopefully going to be this week, because it was rumored to launch right around the game (which was going to be tomorrow...then got delayed...again...to september) so I don't know what is going to happen...

Im not surprised. They never bring out anything on tuesdays only on thursday. I new it was misinformation. Either way the demo is on Xbox Live and I hear it sucks and not worth downloading.
pandabear  +   2906d ago
I think they must have seen all the nagative press from x360 gamers who slated the demo and have decided to change their mind to save even more people slating it.
nofilter  +   2906d ago
It was never meant to be out this week. It's just that the sites mentioned didn't read the press release properly.

Koei said...
The game isn't coming out for a while on PS3 (if ever). There is no date for the PS3 version.

Speaking with GameSpot, a rep for Koei explained that the PS3 version of Fatal Inertia is on hold due to game-engine problems. "It's purely a middleware issue," the rep said, underlining the publisher's commitment to the PS3 platform. "We've always supported Sony and will continue to do so."

No-one said 'demos', they said 'demo', referring to the demo of Fatal Inertia...

Edit - oh, he deleted his comment. =)

I expected more from Sony
They have the music and movies industry i.e. SONY BMG and Sony pictures yet the content is dry what gives? Surely they own the rights to their own property that they could just stick some of that on the PSN.

Demo's wise yes there could be more - more of what people want like LAIR and Warhawk.

Also what is up with only allowing certain people in BETA's? Considering Sony want to increase their userbase they should all those that bought a PS3 to get into BETA's like HOME.

Hopefully once HOME is released in October from what I read that will have music, demos, movies and more.

Oh and the USA PSN has the HOME video to download, fancy leaving everyone else out as it was an amazing video to watch!

Loudninja  +   2906d ago

timmyp53  +   2906d ago
tommorrow dont they mean thursday?
well i'm waiting to download the new Heavenly Sword Anime on the PSN this thursday.. a demo would be nice too though =)
Ravenator529  +   2906d ago
In all honesty...
You're not missing much. After playing the demo, I can easily say that I will not be purchasing or renting this game.

IMO, it's crap!

Posted article
This article sounds a lot like what I posted last night: http://www.gamingbits.com/c...

I spoke to the KOEI rep firsthand and it was confirmed that it would not be out this week.
nofilter  +   2906d ago
Apologies, always meant to give you credit and change the quote once Koei had replied. Article amended.

PSN Demos
As a recent member of the PS3 purchaser club, I have to admit that the content on the PS Store is sorely lacking. I was able to download ALL content in less then two days (all demos, all videos, all movie trailers). This does not include purchased content obviously, but it still points to a serious lack of content. I used to dabble with the 360, but since it is now toast I am a convert. There is still significant content on Live that Sony needs to wok towards providing. Sony could leverage their tremendous potential to get us some content on the store (Music, Movies etc etc). Where are the blu ray trailers (I think there are like 12, and they are all crap movies)? Where are the demos? Where are the PSN games (stardust is sheer brilliance, but I want more).

Sony has a tremendous console (whisper quiet, does not lock up, has some great games coming, and bluray is sweet) they just need to work on PSN.

I would like to know where to get the Folksoul, and Bladestorm demos. I am assuming that Watkins has an alternate profile on the japanese store. :)
timmyp53  +   2906d ago
european/japanese accounts helps
to get more content i also heard that AU had music videos in their PS store.
Nodoze  +   2906d ago
I guess that begs the question, why the inconsistency for the PSN store content. I understand there will be some localized releases for the target market, but why the music vids in AU, and not the USA? Sony seems a bit hap hazard in their approach.
Captain Tuttle  +   2906d ago
Good points NoDoze...
It seems like Sony STILL isn't embracing the online side of the business. Just between the music and the movies they have enough content to bury Microsoft. Where is it?

Thank goodness, this game is garbage. I d/l'd it on my 360 and quickly deleted it. Bioshock on the other hand, the greatness. I know off topic, but that game is awesome.
BIadestarX  +   2906d ago
PS3 don't have to worry about not having this demo... game kind of sucks... just an attempt to reach wipeout fanbase. Never the less, Demos are obviously not something that Sony fans should be proud of.
DARK WITNESS  +   2906d ago
nothing missed...
to think this was one of the big launch games for the ps3 at one time is laughable !

the game is Wank ! it needs another year or two. infact, they should do a time shift, scrap the whole thing and build it from the ground up again.

Last gen does not even describe this. trust me, what ever side you are on in this console war, no body should put up with that pile of £%D£ for a game.

A bad game is a bad game ! if the demo is to go by, its one of the worst ! i would rather play the Heavenly sword demo for the rest of my gaming life !

What happened to www.maxps3.com why is down?
ion666  +   2906d ago

the music blows down in kangaroo town.fatal inertia sucks big ones.play motorstorm and have actual fun.i played that crap on xbox its not worth the delay it looks like a ps one game.dust of your old wipeout xl instead.
RelloC  +   2906d ago
No Worries
Not to worry fellas the demo blows anyway. I mean really blows.
nobizlikesnowbiz  +   2906d ago
Don't fret PS3 owners. The game seems to be garbage.

I'm just sorry that your wonderful free service doesn't put out more content.

You get what you pay for.
ion666  +   2906d ago
i once was lost
i see now now i'd rather pay for online gaming sorry sony

yours truly,lifetime fan
ElementsUnknown  +   2906d ago
It should be a PSN title at best..
At least based on the 360 demo. It is a futuristic racing game that does not contain any enjoyable racing. Wait for wipeout on PS3, or Burnout, or any other racing game not developed by a japanese studio's Canada branch.
ublender  +   2906d ago
It is all the Plan
It is really obvious that Sony is taking the whole store idea one step at a time. Releasing different things in different countries allows them to see what the more popular form of content is. You must remember that Sony has never done anything like this before (unless you include the PSp site, which sucked). The are probably just deciding what they are going to do in the future. If I remember correctly, the Xbox Live really sucked in its original stages, so, just wait.
