M2G Writes: The PS3 is going demo crazy from today, with tasters of LittleBigPlanet 2, Mass Effect 2 and Dead Space 2 all hitting PSN, while the latter will also appear on Xbox Live.
Downloading all 3 demos later I'm especially looking foward to see what they've done with Mass Effect 2.
Going to get a new bulb for my TV later this week, so I'll be stoked to play the demo of Dead Space 2.
F**K im already downloading a 9.5 gigs documentry and its half way done and its taking a looooooooog tiiiiiime now i need to download this this going to take FOREEVER !!!1!1!11!! -_______________-
That sucks man. I hate having to ration out my bandwidth. Just out of curiosity, what was the documentary?
bulb? still haven't moved up from DLP? sorry to hear that bro... hopefully you'll get it soon! don't want you to miss out on all the fun!
i feel ur pain. i have a 3dHD bulb tv and thats the only part that sucks is the bulb.
I don't have a DLP from Samsung. I thought about getting a DLP, but I decided not to, since I don't really trust Samsung's reliability in their DLP sets. The control panel on my friend's DLP just went out last week; I guess it's a common issue with those models. I own a Sony SXRD KDS-50A3000 rear projection set. It still beats a lot of the LCD tv's when it comes to black levels, color saturation, and a sharp 1080p picture. There is something about a projection set that looks more "natural", IMO. I just pop in a new bulb, and it's as bright and sharp as the day I purchased it. The current bulb I have lasted me just under 4 years, which is rather good considering for a while there, I was leaving the set on about 18 hours a day. Some day when I have the cash, I'll pick up a new TV. But for now, this does me just fine. I don't want to hang it on the wall, so there really is no need for me to buy a flat panel set at the moment.
Demos of the three GOTY contenders of 2011 plus super awesome price drops on tons of games tomorrow (for Europe at least). God, I love PS3.
I am quite stoked for all three demos. I want to try LBP2 because the first one was pretty fun and I love the music. Mass Effect 2 I want to be able to compare it to the 360 edition I already have to see if it is worth buying again. I want to also compare Dead Space 2 to see which console I will get it for. DS1 was the best horror game ever imo.
This is a good day for PSN!
We got nothing on the Aus PSN. Shattered saw the heading and went straight to psn and nothing. I was like ah bugger only America.
Dude calm down, the Aussie PSN store doesn't update till Wednesday night, it will be updated tomorrow night for us. Usually like midnight but oh well.
u know u can create USA account and use it for this type of stuff. Downloading demos. I know i did that.
"We got nothing on the Aus PSN. Shattered saw the heading and went straight to psn and nothing. I was like ah bugger only America" Hint: Create accounts for US and Japan, get access to almost everything.
After you make the Japan account, anyone know how to change the language to English?
I played in the DS2 beta and am so looking forward to the demo. LB2 will be cool but to really see where the game is going I need to look at the tools and we don't know what is in the demo at the moment. And of course having beaten ME twice I am looking forward to getting this, the very robust and refined looking version on the PS3. I tend to collect guides for certain titles and Prima said they are putting out an overhauled edition for the PS3 version of ME2. I think we may find there are a few more things in store for us as well. Really looking forward to this.
@ morganfell I take it you didn;t play the LBP2 beta? I would say that the creation tools are a about as easy for noobies as in the LBP, but when you get down to the core of what they can do, you'll crap yourself. It is so deep. I dont think there is anything you cant make. I am really excited to see what the Japanese make with LBP2.
wow all my free time might be spent on PSN all day today.
Let's see if LBP2 lives up to its hype.
It won't show you much, just two story levels and one multiplayer survival (You throw bombs at your friends, they have to dodge them and vice versa).
It better show enough to make me wanna buy it ;D
LBP2 is beyond the hype. No Joke. It`ll be the highest rated game this gen when it`s all said and done.
You can't use youtube ? so many videos to never again talk about "hype".
NICE!! Dead space 2!
TBH that is the one I am looking forward to the most. I love its sci-fi/horror atmosphere reminicent of Aliens or Event Horizon.
I'm still waiting on that lost-in-gaming-limbo Aliens: Colonial Marines game...That title looked quite promising, that is until we stopped hearing about it.
Remember when instead of getting an awesome sounding Aliens horror/RPG from Sega we got the extremely disappointing Aliens vs. Predator? That was depressing :(
played ME1 and carried my character over ot the 2nd its awsome i might still pick up ME2 since its a newer version for ps3 with updated everything dead space 1 i bought when it was 20 and i may take the same route again. LBP2 for those who loved LBP 1 is simply awsome so enjoy i think my time for gaming starts with KZ3 i want to play dues-ex in january but that has been delayed hopefully it will still come out soon
I'll buy them all.
Lbp and Deadspace are nobrainer but played Mass effect never before so im gonna try the demo..
Does anybody know at about what time these demos might show up in the store? It usually seems to be a little later in the day right?
Lately they have been updating the store in the early afternoon
Dead Space 2 demo is already available in the Hong Kong store.
thanks for that.
Thanks for the info. I made this account years ago to try out Lair, but now it's actually gonna have a good use for the first time.
That's a lot of twoey goodness.
Aaaaaaaahhhhhh.... Very nice. I'll most certainly try 'em all out... Thoroughly. :)
Dead Space 2 is looooong overdue. I'm horror game starved over here.
While it isn't scarier than its predecessor, it did a better job of creating a creepy ambiance than I expected. Frozen pipes cracking, necros busting out of cryogenic tubes behind you, and decent lighting add a surprising tension to the atmosphere. And dare I say it, if the demo is any indication of the graphical fidelity of the game, it's easily one of the best looking 360 games on the system. P.S. We even see Issac's face and hear him speak. No longer the Helen Keller of space miners, I'm now squarely looking at you Mr. Freeman.
really wanna see the PS3 version of ME2. too see what it loks like in comparison with my 360 version
dead space is not scary although i wish it was theres no deadly silence, creeky floorboards, flickering lights, eerie music(well its not eerie enough), distant screams, dark rooms with blood on the walls and mysterious documents and shit
Haha. Nice. In all seriousness though, Amnesia is phenomenal!
yeah they need to make a Kinect or PSMove version of Amnesia that would be awesome
That sounds more like Amnesia: The Dark Descent. :)
Dope I'll get all 3. I want to try ME2 on PS3 but I probably wont buy it since I already have it for 360. Looking forward to Dead Space the most.
I...am so downloading these demos no matter how big they are.
the 7.1 audio on dead space is phenomenal seriously is, worth upgrading your audio for. i cant believe they managed to improve the audio from the first game.
Gona buy both Dead Space 2 and LittleBigPlanet when tey releases in January. If the Mass Effect 2 demo is better than on my Xbox Im gonna buy it to. Have both PS3 and Xbox 360. :)
Can't wait!!!!!!!.too bad for dc universe,why does it have to come out on january.
Fantastic news. Once downloaded & played-out, I will scratch my head & try to decide which one & should buy. ME2 is already a big contender so here's hope-ing
PS3 owners are so having a blast today. ME2, LBP2 and DS2 PSN DEMOlition.
My January late night porn surfing will on pause because of these three games.
Bubs for the laugh.
does anyone know when there going to update psn cause i really want to download theses demos.
lol, I actually thought the demo for LBP2 will be coming out tomorrow on the 22nd Having it come out tonight is a pleasant surprise, if I do say so myself. ^_^
I don't see any of the demos mentioned here when i go to the store what time did the demos go live?
Give it an hour or so. It's 5:50 central US time. Usually, it updates around 6 or 7 here.
Okay cool, thanks.
Any time! Also, here's a bubble. I hate when people swarm bubbles. :/
