In a disappointing move, Microsoft has decided to disable the online co-op features of the Resident Evil 5 demo to those of us that aren't living in Japan.
yes it seems they did pay for the rights to release a demo early or they would of released it elsewhere. Smart move to get the asian crowd though. Lets see if that helps.
zomg, this really sucks
well, it was intended for jpn, so im not really suprised. tho i never knew you could download other regions stuff on the x360.. is this demo comming out for Ps3??
But I believe most people just want to try out the game itself! The multi aspect of it would have been a great bonus, but seeing how the game looks and plays is more important in my opinion.
people outside of Japan aren't playing the demo online. I think they are going to drop the banhammer again. Anyway, for the rest of US this sucks. I thought only Sony snubbed western gamers, I guess M$ is vying for all of sony's crowns.
WoW Micro .. just WoW ...
well i really doubt japan going to buy the 360 just for a demo when its coming to ps3 anyway
Son of a b*tch! What the phuck man. I don't have any Gold accounts left to create.
But, wtf Micro!
yes the demo was announced for both ps3 and 360, but when will the ps3 demo hit?
now that's why Sony is the best because whenever we make different accounts from other countries and download demos they don't disable them or delete them, Microsoft u r greedy and tied asses hands down
Yup, Sony is way more of an open system than Microsoft's taut system
Very true, Its funny that we pay for our services and yet they have us by the [email protected]**s in terms of freedom to do what we want with LIVE. 1up for Sony and the PSN network. I miss my PS3.....
it's never to late to come back :)
Yeah i know come this Tax return im getting myself a PS3...lol
"disappointing"? actually its "brilliant" move
...Wow. That's what I call a very sh*tty move.
I sucked the juice out of it already a long time ago.
live, what happen, I can play the demo at this very moment lol talk about paying a fees
they didnt just disable coop, they disabled the demo period
its only online coop that was disabled... I just got finished playing it
are you playing it on disc? when i tried to load up the demo, maybe cause i was signed in, it wouldnt load, then the file went corrupt.
Because the demo isn't too good. A lot of "tearing" and the controls feel old.
So... they choose to release the demo ONLY on the 360 ONLY in Japan, its most... unpenetrated region? Yeah, I don't smell money hats at all!
That's Original, when is there not a conspiracy theory behind everything MS.. Would of loved to try the DEMO is it on PS3?
I find it funny that people scoff at things like the term "money hat" which colloquially has come to mean some form of incentive for developers, when its definitely a common occurrence in today's gaming industry. Making a demo a limited release is just beyond silly and a disservice to consumers.
I don't see a reason why they would do this, it may have more to do with Capcom than MS. They may have only secured early release rights from Capcom in Japan only. Capcom may want the WW release of the demo to be the same for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
Ha Ha Ha
who cares about this? weve already had a week to try it out. ive played the demo 3 times online already i could care less.
