A recent glitch caused EA demos on the Xbox One to cost money. While it was deemed unintentional, one developer has called this a good idea and said that the only problem with this concept is that it doesn’t go far enough.
It wasn't a glitch.
Nope. It was a test run.
It definitely wasn't a glitch! They were $4.99 in the US and £3.99 in the UK. A glitch couldn't give 2 different demos regionally specific prices, it was EA being EA.
Didnt know that. Thanks for sharing that info.
After I saw it appear in other regions I knew it wasn't an innocent mistake. EA just being EA.
Paying for a trailer? What are you, insane
Give EA a chance and that's exactly where we'll be heading.
But I guess gamers are offended when a company dares to ask for five measly dollars for a demo. Seriously.... Measly wow
I'm going to read this as the guy talking tongue in cheek. It seems like satire to me.
Come on don't give ea ideas. Pretty soon we will be paying like 10 cents a button press in there games.
Square Enix already did this with FFXIII in Japan. Paid demos are ridiculous!
I feel like it would be less of a problem if buying the demo deducted from the price of the final purchase. Buy the first 1-2 hours of the game for $5 to try it out, if you like it Get $5 off buying the rest of the game.
