A tweet from Rockstar says there are no plans for a Max Payne 3 demo.
rockstar never do demos
They don't need a demo. Their game will sell based off their reputation and word of mouth. Rockstar's and Take Two's advertising doesn't hurt either.
Their demos would probably take at least 10 gig of space lol
Another reason for not buy this game.
Demos have initially turned me off to some of the better games I've played. Dead Space's demo was complete crap, so I decided not to buy the game. Two years later I purchased it because it was on sale. One of the best games I've played. Conversely, the CoD World at War demo was very fun for me. I played the game at a friend's house (I don't buy COD games), and I hated it. If you're gonna put out a demo, you have to do a great job with the demo. Thus, a developer who's making a high quality game may hurt the sales of the game by putting out a glitchy, boring demo that doesn't offer the same level of excitement as the main title. I can see why developers would be hesitant to put out a demo.
Then you miss out on another Rockstar masterpiece, A sequel to one of the best franchises out there and a potential GOTY. Congratulations.
What makes you so sure it will be great? The first 2 games were amazing and still look good today, I have high hopes but R* have made some crap games over the last few years. Look how GTA4 turned out, huge franchise, crap sequel. A demo would be nice imo
Having played near enough every single Rockstar game I can say GTA IV is in my top 5. I have never played a Rockstar Game I haven't liked. That's why im sure I will like it. Also the gameplay footage loots amazing and Max Payne is a franchise for the real core gamers.
Alot say GTAIV was crap some liked it, I think it was good being PS3's first GTA(remember most games sucked at ps3 launch)....but the main character did SUCK lol sry Niko.
No not really, there's not many devs games I would buy without some sort of demo or vid but I would buy a rockstar game without any info on it, Off topic but I have to say that Ted is looking funny as hell going by the trailer, Where's my ring you f..k, put a ring on my fluffy finger u f..king f..k
you don't need a demo IT IS FROM ROCKSTAR hell you don't even need to see any trailers for the game you just go out and buy it .. ok maybe i gone too far lol
I know for a fact this game is going to be awesome, but a demo would have been nice.
I guess I don't need a demo. I'm just so picky about Rockstar games. :/ I like Bully, Red Dead Redemption, Max Payne, Max Payne 2, and LA Noire. None of those were developed by Rockstar North though. GTA I & II weren't very fun to me. GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas were fun in concept, but none of them gave me that "satisfaction factor" that games like Just Cause 2, inFamous, and Prototype perfected later. Headshot an NPC? His head blows off. That's great and all, but the police AI was terrible, and the shooting/driving mechanics kind of ruin any chance I had of enjoying the chases. GTA IV had a great story, but I got so bored with the side missions that I stopped playing. :/
What are you talking about? GTA IS AWESOME
I was blown away by the stat sheets. The game keeps a record of almost everything you do, even how many times and how much money you spent on seeing hookers.
I know you all like GTA. That's why I stated my opinion as an "opinion". -_-
Whatever. Because I'm planning to get it as soon as it comes out. So far Rockstar's games have made a positively lasting impression on me.
From Boston so got to go to PAX yesterday, games incredible talked to one of the guys from Rockstar and best believe its in great hands no demo needed. Also got some cool shit for free.
I wish but am not surprised.
Really disappointed that fans who can't get to conventions get shafted.
