The kill animations should’ve been free…. It feels weird to pay for those.

Nevermind Callisto Protocol, I'm looking forward to 'pragmata' from capcom.

Demos should be free to everyone, not locked behind a paywall. I say this as a PS guy. Anybody remember game mag demos and shareware?

TQQ76d ago

PlayStation store has all the same free demos the other devices have.

These are full game trials including trophy support, and soon people will be able to stream them making them even easier to access.

zaanan76d ago

Demo, trial…
“you say potayto, I say potahto, let’s call the whole thing off”

MrNinosan76d ago

There is tons of free demos, way more than back in the time (which wasn't free as you had to buy magazines).

Game Trials however is another thing, and I love that they exist, and I don't mind them being behind a "paywall" together with lots of other games and benefits.

zaanan76d ago

Ah, but you could share those floppies and discs for free, so…

zaanan76d ago

Who in the world is disagreeing that you could share demo discs for free back in the day? I certainly got given some for free, and gave some away myself. It’s an objectively true statement. Are they not teaching logic in schools anymore?

MrNinosan75d ago

And I can share the knowledge on how to create a PSN account to download 100s of free demos as well. Don't see your point.


That’s when demos were cheap to produce… we’re past that.

Most big budget games don’t need a playable demo to move units anyways, people make up their minds from YouTube, so devs are rarely motivated to produce a demo.

Callisto Protocol could benefit from a demo, since they have since patched alotta issues cited by initial reviews. So, it IS weird to diminish the marketing impact of a demo by gating it behind a sub.

I found all my ps2 magazines (and Dreamcast magazines) in the attic.

Sold the lot on eBay for £200. Was a VERY heavy box.

Nintendo magazines also but they had no demos.

They were £5 a pop at the time when all other magasines were £3, but came with a disk of usually 1 great demo and a few indies. Those were the days.


Demo's are awesome and should be free like you mentioned for EVERY game.

Increases game sales without having to download 50gb + for something you realized you weren't interested in.

This is a very slow process, they promised that all games over a certain price point would get a trial. We are nowhere near that point at the moment.

CantThinkOfAUsername76d ago

I bet major publishers aren't on board with this idea.

MrNinosan76d ago

No, Sony didn't promise that all games would get a trial.

"Sony will require some PlayStation game developers to create trial versions of their games as part of changes coming to its PlayStation Plus subscription service, according to a new report from Game Developer. Those trial versions will reportedly be required to last at least two hours long, if the game being sold costs $34 or more."

zaanan76d ago

By that logic: Callisto is more than $34, so the “trial”/demo should be Two hours, not One.

MrNinosan76d ago (Edited 76d ago )

Since when is Callisto a game made by a Playstation developer?

And let's say they go under the banner "Playstation developer" what say this specific developer is one the ones that Sony Requires doing this?

zaanan76d ago

you’re leaving out a very important word from the quote you yourself quoted earlier: “game.” As in, “playstation Game developers,” not “playstation developers.” Obviously, the quote refers to anyone who creates games to be played on playstation. Not just devs owned by Sony.

Striking Distance has created a PS version of their game, so the quote (again, which you yourself quoted) means this demo should be Two hours long. Let’s try to at least be consistent with our arguments here.

MrNinosan75d ago

And you missed out on ""Sony will require SOME PlayStation game developers", and as I wrote before, you nor I don't know which developers are included in "some".

The Callisto Protocol DLC Isn't The Redemption I Was Hoping For

DS: “Instead of elevating the experience, this final chapter caused me to question my previous favorable stance on the game as a whole.”

I was a huge fan of Dead Space, but this game never lived up to those standards for me.

The graphics were stellar, but the mechanics amounted to a trial and error cycle from checkpoint to checkpoint.

I watched the dev diaries, and expected a polished experience from moment to moment.

Instead, I felt like several checkpoints were never reviewed by a director.

I hope they get a chance to try again, because they definitely crafted a few gems throughout.

seanpitt2377d ago

Yeah it was lackluster and very repetitive you could tell it was there first major game as a new company even though they did have some legendary Devs working on it.. the graphics and atmosphere was 10/10 though the thing with dead space it had the gameplay and story to back it up

MIDGETonSTILTS1776d ago (Edited 76d ago )

I’m reading an interview with Glen Schofield, and they seem pretty proud of their latest DLC.

I’ll have to revisit the game.

Alotta games get better from patches, and it is a shame when that work goes unnoticed.

neomahi78d ago

I'm actually really looking forward to playing this, just don't have the money for it right now.... I've been waiting on a sizable price drop, but I'm gonna get there. NOT playing the Dead Space remake though, if I wanna play those, I'll play them as they were intended on an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3
