this game is the next big flop

I guess that she is somewhat right, how can you make a demo of a sandbox game? I guess I'll just have to read a review.

HeartlesskizZ3699d ago

yep it was a bit like asking for a GTA4 demo but you know when you are hype about a game you really hope for a demo no matter what.

Hatchetforce3698d ago

There have been demos for similar titles before. Just Cause anyone? Often such reasoning for not having a demo is common sense. You can either have the demo or the game. The team is in crunch phase and concentrating their efforts on the full game. But I suspect something else here...

There have been disturbing reports surfacing recently that the game isn't all it is cracked up to be and the controls are horrendous. An initial bad reception for a demo could severely damage sales. Severely damage. Particularly in one of the most heavily competed quarters in gaming history. All it would take would be a little negative community rumble for people to run off to CoD4, Incharted, or some other likely better game.

How? What was played at E3? A demo. that's how. This is the one game that I actually feel I NEED to demo first, because I was a little turned off by that E3 stage demo. I don't by any means expect a game to run perfectly months before its release, but if it's NOT, you have to deal with people making impressions off of it none-the-less.

Crackdown was a sandbox game and had a very good demo. It just gave you a small portion of the map and some simple objectives to do to let you get a feel for the game. Theres no reason why assassin's creed can't do the same.

They probably haven't released a demo for the same reason there was no lair demo, they want to hide a subpar product behind the tons of hype its getting and sell as many copies as possible before people find out it sucks. I hope I'm wrong but thats what this seems like to me on the surface.

All I heard was music.

Who cares about a demo? Remember the days when you would just buy a game because it looked interesting to you?

I <3 Jade when she speaks.

How young are you? I remember browsing the folders on Origin games and finding plenty of extra demos. In the early days, a lot of games were shareware. That is a demo if there ever was one. So when you say 'back in the day', the rest of us say you mean 'yesterday. WE MEAN BACK IN THE DAY THERE WERE DEMOS.

It's all BS. I'm guessing the real reason they don't want a demo is because it might turn people off from the game, or it might get bad press, etc. They're just not confident with it basically. Dead Rising was a sandbox game and there was a well done demo released on marketplace, which was pretty popular by the way.

HeartlesskizZ3698d ago

That is true, hmm but also I dont think the game will disappoint at least me
