Vanquish DEMO Coming to PSN Next Week!

PlayStation.Blog – My name is Julian Mehlfeld and I’m the community manager on Vanquish here at SEGA. I’m very happy to be writing this blog all about our soon-to-release Vanquish demo for PlayStation 3, which should be out on August 31 across PSN. For everyone at SEGA, this is very exciting news, and we hope you enjoy taking a spin on SEGA and PlatinumGames newest offering. Before we jump into the details, I want to give you a quick bit of info on the setting, the game, and then offer you a bit of a challenge... (PS3, Vanquish)

Can't wait to play this!
Very interested to see how Platinum Games has handled using the PS3 as the lead development system this time around. I'm sure the texture work and frame rate will be more than acceptable, unlike with Bayonetta.

Will the demo be available to everyone, or just Playstation+ subscribers first?

I haven't been following this game very much, but with the name "Shinji Mikami" attached to it, I expect i'm going to be pleasantly surprised.
redsquad  +   1702d ago
Looks beautiful... dodgy voice work though.
chriski333  +   1702d ago
looks awsome but
i just hope and pray its not a short game please oh please let it be a good length
Sigh  +   1702d ago
well there's no online mode for this game I heard so that's a plus!
kasasensei  +   1701d ago
Bayonetta was 12-15h for the first run in normal, pretty decent, don't you think?
Sigh  +   1702d ago
Finally I can get my hands-on this fast, hyper game.
GeoramA  +   1702d ago
This and Castle Crashers. Looking like a nice update.
enkeixpress  +   1702d ago
Ah nice, looks like they wanna' show the developers out there on how a multi-platform title is supposed to be done..

2K Games, take notes please

GusBricker  +   1702d ago
And remember...
If the game is missing something, the PS3 version will probably get exclusive content, like a second pack of smokes or maybe better, a pipe!

I kid, I kid.

holdmedownma2008  +   1702d ago
I thought the demo was coming out for both systems?
GusBricker  +   1702d ago
This is coming from Playstation's official site...
So, there's no way they'd mention the 360.
Briefcase Joe  +   1702d ago
It should be out on Wednesday for Xbox.
Baltis  +   1702d ago
I am so hyped for this one. I've followed it since its inception it seems. There isn't just any one thing about it that stands out, it's just all of it. This is one game that actually seems like a fun ride. Games just aren't fun anymore. They are too strict in their delivery to be fun. We have the same basic bleed through in them all. Even Red Dead Redemption suffered from the same format. I get so bored of games so quickly these days. I haven't even made it out of the 2nd area of GOW3 yet. It's just boring to me. But every time I see this game I just wanna give it a spin. This is a day one buy for me.

The funny thing, when someone says a game sucks it usually turns out to be a worthwhile adventure. When someone praises a game to the moon and pre-hypes it, I never get but 2 or 3 hours into it before I'm bored of it. Perfect example of this is Bionic Commando for the Ps3. I absolutely loved it. It is one of the best games I played this gen, in fact. The Mole is easily the best looking boss fight in any next gen game to date. Nothing has come close to capturing a cinematic battle like that game did. Not even Uncharted 2 looks as good as Bionic Commando does a lot of times. That's just the truth. Deny all you want, but Bionic Commando looks amazing to this day. And it actually requires skill to play and learn. Unlike so many "High" concept games being released.

Back to topic, Vanquish looks like a helluva game and I cannot wait to jam it.
Unicron  +   1702d ago
For once I agree with you.

My ONE worry is the control layout. I hope its good, or at least somewhat mappable, as Platinum usually goes with some odd choices (or no choices at all).

But yeah, this and CV are my most anticipated fall titles. I have no interest in Reach or GT5.
pork_chop_express  +   1702d ago
I have 2 agree aswell a bit, bionic commando was worth platinuming and was a great shame it sank the company, they built a great ps3 engine for that game. It wasn't anything compared to U2 but it was very good.
RockmanII7  +   1702d ago
Lucky bastards
RockmanII7  +   1701d ago
The demo is coming to PSN and XBL on the same day, the title is just misleading
MiltonZep  +   1702d ago
The wait is killing me!
I want Mikami goodness nao!
Moonboots  +   1702d ago
Looking forward to playing this. So glad they are doing a demo. It's a definite buy for me at this point unless the demo changes my mind.

I am impatient to see if it is running good. Unlike Bayonnetta for example. XD
