Epic confirmed that currently there are no plans to make available a playable demo of its Bulletstorm on PC.
Peeps aint gonna be happy with that.
Meh. I could care less, it just means less sales for them.
well said mate. why not give pc players a demo, have they got something to hide?....
It's pretty simple really, People can Fly, the devs on this title are in fact PC devs. They were responsible for Gears 1 on PC and that is how Epic became involved with People can Fly. They are a very talented group of people and have actually added alot to the already solid Unreal game engine. http://www.youtube.com/watc... IMO...they don't want the high end specs of the PC version to take away from the awesome console version. Looking forward to playing the demo...what so called hardcore gamer only games on PC anyways...lol. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
@cez of rage but why not give PC gamers a chance to try it out, its the equivalent of saying PC gamers don't matter to them and the fact that it comes from a company with its roots in PC is even more shameful. Its offensive to me that PC gamers, whether they be "hardcore gamers" or not deserve the same consideration as the console gamers. This is one game I am interested in but I know that I would not be sure unless I played it first hand, the PS3 demo will be fine but I would have rather played the PC version as if I decide to get the game that is the one I will go for.
If pc gamers are interested in this title. They will try before they buy through other means. This time around I won't be tryin it simply because it doesn't appeal to me.
you mean 'couldnt care less'?
Getting this game day one.Hope it's on steam though.
it's confirmed to be on steam.
Well not really there will be a specific few that will "borrow" the title from certain places to try it out before buying. Thats an alternative, a bad one but hey there is nothing we can do about it. I for one will be getting BS for my 360 along side of KZ3. Cant wait!
Ah that is ok I have no plans to buy Bulletstorm. Epic are so out of touch with the PC community that I do not expect much from anything they produce on the PC. I will ensure my money goes to developers that actually WORK for it on the PC.
Well ill get the "extended demo" and see if this POS will be worth getting
So they are forcing me to pirate the game so I can check how well the game runs on my rig.
Its people like you that games that deserve sequels are never made. Thats if you really are a pirater.
Not really if he ends up buying the software. If anything, a demo should be on the pc first to ensure that everyone can run the game properly before actually purchasing it.
Its a big risk to just buy a game without trying it first. Especially if it turns out you can't run the game.
This will make people need to pirate it Kran. A demo gives people a chance to see how it will run, if they don't offer a demo some people will have to take a gamble when they buy it if they can't try it out. There's no reason why they couldn't make a demo for pc, it's either lazyness or they just don't give a toss. Maybe a bit of both. Either way it won't do them any favours with pc gamers.
I'll get the special demo after release and decide if I want to buy the game.
That was a shot in the back. They don't care about the PC gamers. that's it.
Lol yea funny thing is that they started on pc. And a pc demo is the most important because nobody has to worry if their console can run the game properly or not. How hard is it to put out a demo really. This just gives pirates one more excuse. Such stupid and petty decisions.
Pretty foolish, this will not help reduce their piracy numbers.
epic is dead to a lot of pc gamers
Hmm, actually this is weird. Because People can fly have games developed only for PC. Is strange they are not supporting PC with a demo. People can fly along with Epic Games created Bulletstorm.
What a surprise..PC gamers have been getting screwed for past couple years now.
Their own actions caused it.
Logic fail People "pirate" games to make sure they run on their system before dropping $50 on them, if there were more demo's "piracy" would go down. I guess since the system requirements are so ridiculously low for this game, they don't think the core audience will have any problem maxing it out.
Oh come on, are you that deluded that you think most people will continue to pay for the game after they've already pirated it?
^ Why not? I do it all the time when in doubt about a game's performance. If it doesn't have a demo, then I check how it runs and then just buy it if it works fine. Most pirates however, will not pay for the game, you're right about that, but most pirates never have the intention of buying the game to begin with. It's not exactly a lost sale. The PC is given a backseat by most third-party developers since it's less of a technological hassle to make a console game due to the unified hardware. Otherwise, PC games still rake in a sizable amount of income due to DD and PC-gamers generally have more money to spend (because they can afford a decent rig)
Well said FatOldMan People don't understand that a pirated copy does not always equal a lost sale, though sometimes it does, it is an unknown statistic. Developers should be making efforts to reduce all piracy which occurs outside of the "lost sale" numbers in order to better understand the correct stats. Such as releasing demos...or what CapCom does with the Benchmark programs, they are very nice.
Epic just shot themselves in the foot with the PC gamers.You can't screw with them and expect no retaliation.Activision and Ubisoft have paid a heavy price for making the wrong move
Is there gonna be a demo for the consoles? I want the game but I hope there is a demo, if not then I guess I will have to keep an eye out for the reviews.
I'm just happy they are making a PC version. Maybe if this does well we'll see Gears on PC again. I'll buy it just to support the PC. Pirates will only ruin our chances of future releases. If you're rig sucks so much that it won't play an unreal engine game then you shouldn't be playing pc games anyway.
*cough* Fuck you Epic. Fuck you. That is all.
oh, no demo? no way to test if the game runs on my rig? okay I guess I'll just fuckin pirate a copy a week before its released to test if I can buy it. This could have been avoided with a demo, but...meh who cares? who cares if a bouncha PC gamers are treated like shit? FFS no Deadspace 2 demo, no Bulletstorm demo, next thing you know theres gonna be a console only battlefield 3 beta which isnt actually a beta, rather an advanced demo.
well I guess I have to download it to see if it's worth buying for $50!! see the relation to pirating?? fu!!! meh It's gears of war arcade game anyway! & it releases just before Crysis 2 so it's even more meh!!
I was really enthousiast for BS. Then I heard it had GFWL Then there is no demo Now I'm close to not interrested anymore.
no pc demo? not ganna buy this game, why? i know its ganna be a shitty port.
Bulletstorm is just another console port, Epic knows it and PC gamers know it. So there is no reason to waste time making a Demo for PC. It's not a game that PC gamers are gonna be foaming at the mouth to buy. Console gamers are hyped up for this title so a console Demo makes sense. Once Bulletstorm drops in price on STEAM then maybe a few PC gamers will pick it up. Besides this comes out around the same time as Crysis 2 so forget Bulletstorm all together.
good choice! they know it would be a waste! what's the point in making a pc demo for pc gamers to taste if they would buy it or not, whereas they would pirate the game instead no matter what. The demo is only for consoles for people like me to decide if it's worth buying! because frankly I'm not impressed by the game so far *constant swearing, felt like script/dialogue it was written by an immature kid with no discipline *all you do is kill with style...ok...but i still love how enemies chase you while you run back firing ala Painkiller! -Ninja Gaiden 3-is sick man!:)
I'm not gonna throw a tantrum over this. Everything points to the game NOT having DRM so I will be buying it on day 1.
Most of your comments are whack why does it always have to be about Pirating on PC. Do you realize the 360 is also Pirated? Why does that make a difference at all. This is just a lame ass excuse from CliffyB not to support the PC who Supported him & unreal till this day. CliffyB needs to have his ass kicked & I will do it for him. He is NOT a true gamer he is in it for the money. Its going to be a crappy Port & most likely anyways they will not give us any support for the game once its Released.
