This better not be exclusive to people paying for the pre order digitally

CrimsonWing69114d ago

What if it's PS+ Premium exclusive?

phoenixwing114d ago (Edited 114d ago )

I'm covered but that would suck for others

Eidolon114d ago

That would make no sense, if they already sold it to you.

phoenixwing113d ago

I have a physical copy pre ordered but I have ps plus premium. Reading is important

MetroidFREAK21114d ago

Don't need a demo. I'm already sold on this game

gold_drake114d ago

same haha

ive been trying to dodge anything spoiler related for weeks ha

RpgSama114d ago

I've been trying to do exactly the same, but this I think it's a vertical slice of the very first few hours, so in a way not spoiler, you are playing the beginning of the game early and then continuing once the game comes out, I might play if that's the case.

MetroidFREAK21114d ago

I still need to finish the FF7 Remake and even start Crisis Core Reunion... may buy this, but hold off playing it until I at least beat the remake lol

RedDevils114d ago

I'll just wait for the copy arrive at my door step lol

MrNinosan114d ago

It's a Square demo thou, which means.
You play from the beginning for about 2 hours, and when you get the game, you just continue.

The way "demos" should be made 👍

CrimsonWing69114d ago

same, but I want to freaking play it now for the 1 or 2 hours than to wait some 20ish days.

helicoptergirl114d ago

I hope its free for everyone to try and not just preorder people

gold_drake114d ago

there will be a demo.
this one might be some sort of glitch or something, cause it did show up for me and but i couldnt download it.

and i pre-ordered the physical

CrimsonWing69114d ago

has a demo ever been pre-order only? Like where is this coming from?

porkChop114d ago

It's probably coming from the description of the article.

"appeared on the PlayStation Store after pre-ordering the game."

CrimsonWing69114d ago


My question is when has a demo ever been a pre-order item?

It seems extremely freaking contradictory to me. I’ve pre-ordered FF16 digitally and the pre-order doesn’t show up for me.

I promise you, the demo isn’t tied to a pre-order, that’s is absolutely ludicrous.

porkChop114d ago (Edited 114d ago )

I'm not saying it's exclusive to preorders. I'm saying that the wording of the description is why people are mentioning it being for preorders. Considering Square Enix has paywalled demos multiple times, by making people buy Blu Ray films or other games, it would hardly be surprising. Hence why people are questioning it.

jznrpg114d ago (Edited 114d ago )

I have seen very little of the game. There is no way am I ruining it by playing a demo.

It’s really close now

Snookies12114d ago

You're so lucky man! Square-Enix in usual fashion have spoiled a great deal through the trailers. The game is going to be legendary, I can feel it in the very core of my soul haha.

We'll you'd think the announcement of DLC would have hinted at that. If the game did poorly they would have just moved on.

And if you bring up Forespoken DLC they sold a season pass at launch and had to do it.

Abriael5d ago

That article should have never been approved to begin with, since stock market "news" is invalid on N4G.
It's also based on the literal fake news alleging that Kiryu-san said that FFXIV's sales disappointed.
I've been saying that was fake news for ages (the distortion was obvious like the sun), and today we got the receipts. Unfortunately, the many sites that ran away with that narrative without doing a shred of research will get away with it because they always do.

Wait for that Takashi Mochizuki spin!
