BioWare has today confirmed a delay in the release of the demo version of the highly anticipated Mass Effect 3.

I'll just get PC version I guess. Is this origin only?

NYC_Gamer1799d ago (Edited 1799d ago )

you will have to download origin regardless if you buy the game digital or retail.

no announcement of timed exclusive dlc yet.

fluffydelusions1799d ago (Edited 1799d ago )

Bah origin! I hate it. I already have it for BF3 and SWTOR but it's annoying software. Seems every update it forgets my password and always asks me for it. What's the deal with DLC with ME3 anyway. Please tell me no timed exclusive on 360?

ginsunuva1799d ago

Where do I get the pc demo?

NYC_Gamer1799d ago


10 am pst on origin

How is this a delay? The European store wouldn't have got the demo today anyway seen as it only updates on Wednesdays, so it's NOT a delay at all.

Warning, this game is extremely dumbed down. The demo led me to cancel my pre-order due to the fact that the dialogue is nothing like the average Bioware game.

Shepard mostly speaks for himself now, and the player barely has any inputs of what to say in certain situations... this really ruined my day.

calm down US people

I guess I should get around to playing ME2 someday. Suppose I can pick it up cheap now. I just didn't like the pacing of the Bioware games for a period there. KOTOR, Jade Empire - I don't need everyone I speak to launching into their entire life story. I reluctantly picked up Dragon Age based on a friend's advice and found it was much more like the Bioware I knew of old. I understand most consider ME2 to be Bioware's best game, I just haven't been in a rush to try it. The good thing is that not only will ME2 be cheap now, by the time I get around to ME3 it'll probably be cheap as well. In the meantime, Skyrim keeps calling me back. :)

oh there's no attempt to paint the ps3 and sony in a bad light. your imagining that crap. its just for the hits - sure pal keep telling yourself that

tawak1798d ago

i dont mind giving it exclusively to xbox 360.
atleast they have some exclusive for now.
well, sorta.. "exclusive timed DEMO"

MAJ0R1798d ago

First Dragon Age now Mass Effect? Bioware what has happened to you...

Aloren1798d ago

@da_2pacalypse look at the leaked beta. There are no dialogues in the demo because they took them out. You're supposed to talk with the Salarian guy you meet when you land, you're also supposed to talk with Kirrahe and Mordin.

I can't wait to see how many don't actually READ the article and base their comments on the title alone.

DA_SHREDDER1799d ago

I believe you stry. I also believe third party games are all your 360 can do. Now time to play some Twisted Metal, something you'll never play on your 360 even if Jaffe switches sides. muahahaha

It's only delayed for PAL store tomorrow. It's still going up today for the US store.

The article should clarify this, considering the US store updates today.

TheHater1799d ago

hits hits hits hits hits hits

The European Store doesn't even update until tomorrow. So how exactly is this a delay?

C_Menz1799d ago

It isn't but people love to hate on Sony so websites like this will try and draw crowds in with titles like this.

BigBoss19641799d ago

So it's delayed in europe until tomorrow? The store doesn't update until tomorrow anyway lol good thing I have a US account

kratos171799d ago

Wow, what a pitiful way to get a few meager hits. Lol gaming journalism

tigertron1799d ago

Its a pain in the arse that the EU store doesn't update until tomorrow. They should do a world wide update at the same time...

Well, I couldn't wait any longer so I'm currently downloading the 360 demo. I'll download both the campaign and multiplayer demos for the PS3 later on in the week, but right now I'm desperate to play some ME3.

tigertron1798d ago

Sorry I meant just the one demo.

Anyways, the demo is EPIC. I loved every minute of it and the soundtrack is by far the best of the series. It was so awesome to see my Shepard this time instead of the defaults. I had to make a few tweaks because Bioware added some more variations.

I'll be downloading the PS3 version tomorrow.
