A demo for Capcom's action shooter Bionic Commando is now available for download exclusive to the Xbox Live Marketplace.
Dam I'm going to jump off Netflix to download this real quick
i don't have a gold account and have never downloaded a demo from live. can i download this demo with just silver? if not then i will just have to wait until the 1st may when live is free. in the mean time anyone give me a mini-review of this demo??
you can DL demo's with a silver account. you just have to wait a week or two after the gold members get it.
get a job
This is pretty nice. Im also glad they brought this game back.
Im running to my room just to download this incredible game cya guys online.
So now MS is after exclusive timed demos ?? lmao ,, guess now I know what Ms is gonna show at E3 .... reason Im mad is cos since the game is developed for both ps3 and 360 ( i only got ps3 ) ,, why not release it on psn as well ..... Sorry MS but gamin would have been way better without u :(
is getting the marvel vs capcom 2 demo
Wow, so much fail in just one comment.
You tell 'em Chef!
...and STUPID. Sony got the FF13 demo and Marvel vs Capcom demo exclusively....care to explain how that's any different?
@SonyRu FFXIII demo isnt a good example, you KNOW it is japan bound where game wont be released on the 360. All this practice of getting timed exclusives demos, for god sake, multiplat DEMOS!!!! is pretty ridiculous.
it's pretty annoying to know i can download this but not play it because i don't have gold atm :/ surely even silver members should be able to play a demo, even if it is multi ffs
if you don't have gold, then you can't download it either. wait till next week and you'll be able to download it, but you won't be able to play it. I know paying for LIVE can be annoying, but each time I compare it to PSN, it just feels like I'm not giving Microsoft enough money. LIVE is awesome.
i agree last month i got me a 1 moth gold card because i spent my money on a few games the whole month nothing worth it came out on the XBL marketplace it was basically dead now something does come out (just a demo but still something) and guess what my gold expired yesterday yay -__- and i can't get gold anytime soon since i just recently bought a few games so im broke damn XBL is annoying at times it would have been better if you could play online as a silver member you just wouldn't get many of the good features that gold accounts have
well i'd say silver members should at least be able to play a demo online. The whole point is to sell the game but it seems i can't try before i buy without paying? and ppl disagree with me for that lol
You can still create a new account. Each time you do, you get 1 month gold membership. EDIT : I'm pretty sure on the next Xbox Silver members will be able to play multiplayer games without having to pay. Gold membership won't exist anymore, they'll become VIPs, with better internet connection, dedicated servers and so on...
ye could do i guess. i think eu is supposed to have a fee gold weekend coming up though so will prob just go on then
yes live is good but my problem is i only use it to play online. Just so frustrating for someone like me who'd just like to try a demo :/ edit: wow how can ppl disagree with me for being annoyed at having to pay so i can play a demo :/ tbh most ppl on this site disagree but never actually discuss the matter, i think they should introduce some feature where if you disagree you have to reply (although we'd just get a load of blank messages then haha)
I see. For someone like you, I think PSN is the right choice; it's free and you get most of the demos day 1 (except when you have to pre-order, or buy CORE to get them). I'm still waiting for the video store in Europe's market place.
yeh. well i own both. been on my ps3 alot more for that very reason (and most of my friends are on there) So it's quite hard for me to justify resubscribing for live atm which is annoying cus i would quite fancy popping on now and again (been in a halo mood recently!) If you just own a 360 then live isn't really a problem because you'll always be using it. I guess i'll just have to wait for halo odst to come out then subscribe again then
Yeah, all (not most) my real life buddies are on PSN too because it's free, but I still prefer LIVE for all it's functionalities and I made many new American friends there.
This exclusive demo stuff is stupid.. either way i'm downloading it as i'm sat here typing. Playing through the campaign of H.A.W.X.
True's a lame demo anyways The multiplayer demo sucks, played it for about 10 minutes, maybe acquired taste so might play it some more. The weapons in the demo sucks don't like the feel and sound of them. Swinging mechanic doesn't work very well for me in the demo. Graphics suck, although in the intro the graphics of the story seem to look nice.
Sorry guys but Live is certainly not worth paying for just to play games online. And MS has the audacity to spam the accounts who do infact pay for Live with advertisements! MS shafts us both ways. Kinda like a teenager who leaves the family home but still wants money. F*** off you! BTW as a multiplatform owner there really is no difference between both the services of Live and PSN. Your dellusional if you think otherwise.
coming from a person with a PS3 game icon wouldn't surprise me. an YES there is a difference between live an the PSN. I'm a triple console owner an I cant stand to use the PSN. I would GLADLY pay for XBL after using the PSN.so to think there's no difference, your the one disillusional my friend!! just say for YOU, YOU prefer the PSN, but XBL is way better an that's why you pay for it.eating restaurant food is better than eating trash but trash is free, so I guess you rather eat trash. you guys kill me with that PSN is better or no different than XBL. what a ridicoulos statement!!
...if you weren't OBVIOUSLY LYING. MS doesn't "SPAM" your account with ads....they give you the option to OPT OUT of the ads...it's in your user settings. NEXT.
next........ and get a job and stop trolling
I've never had a SINGLE add pop up on live. And also as a triple console owner I can say that live pwns PSN
played it for 5 minutes.... i will leave it at that. :(
the demo was not as gd as a thought, only MP and the graphics is horrible so to speak well its a demo not the real shyt anyway. but i have deleted it off my HDD .. going bk to play gear2
Trying to play it now, soon as i get into a match i get "Disconnected from host" .. I have a feeling they're just using this as a beta.
any ideas if there will be a single player demo? i did find it odd to hear that the demo releasing would be a multiplayer one.
Peeps, the game is quite boring so you're really not missing on anything.
its boring dont worry urself, u aint missing nothing.
the gameplay and everything looked wacked.
I play this multiplayer demo and in my opinion its very intresting!! I think BCommando multi kick "azz" Uncharted2 multi at all
ur comment is a fail Uncharted2 will so own this thing.
i'm glad i have a ps3. bionic comando is rubbish along with a lot of multiplatform games . saying its rubbish might be a bit harsh but as a dude who has a ps3 with a 71'hdtv who has 95%of the ps3 exclusives, i realize that the multiplatform games look and feel dated like its from a previous generation. bionic commando would have been better if it was optimized using the SPUs in the ps3 and the blu ray capacity . fracture is another game that had a lot of potential but fell short of being good because it was not optimized using the ps3s strength. ps3 exclusives makes multiplatform games look dated, its the truth but its peoples will to buy anything they want. a lot of people are satisfied with inferior games with inferior tech but i prefer quality tech in my games with high quality graphics . ps. the talon stands for talented
1.) You can take your fanboy SPAM >>>>> 2.) Your stupid little "ps" included after every post, makes no f*cking sense. If the "talon" stands for "talented"...why the hell didn't you make your name "dylantalen"? TALON is what you call the claws of a predatory bird, idiot.
omg get a frikkin life. stop spamming. go blog it or something
i think they just committed suicide by releasing this demo, the game play sucks and the graphics are horrible!
fanboys will disagree and spew hatred when they hear the truth which i think is funny. where are the multiplatform games that can be compared to uncharted, motorstorm 2, resistance 2, mgs 4, lbp, gt 5 pro. w.k.c, wipe out hd. heavenly sword, lair, killzone 2 and a lot more being released this year. there are a few multiplatform games that are good like resident evil 5 but they still dont reach the level of a lot of the ps3 exclusives which is fine for a lot of people but its not for me. have you people seen and played most of these games on teles they are meant to be played on, i have. have anyone seen god of war 3, uncharted 2 ,and heavy rain? those games will raise the bar again as ps3 exclusives and multiplatform games and xbox exclusives havent reached the level of uncharted which came out in 2007. dont get upset because you are hurt by the truth. ps. the talon stands for talented
The whole ps thing is kind of douchie. You might want to reconsider.
COD 4 eats resistance 2 for breakfast! And Grid takes a dump all over GT5 pro. And everything released in the last 3 years farts in Lairs general direction. Why not mention Haze while you were at it? Talon stands for talented? Spelling not a strong point then?
LMAO.. guys give the kid a break. He's owning himself in every comment. His sharp talons will rip you to shreds even though that is not his talent.
Ive been saying the whole PS thing is stupid. We see your name and I dont think ONE person has ever asked themselves what the talon stood for. And like someone else said talon doesnt stand for talented. LOL Anyways, I am a firm supporter of Sony... but you make us all look bad. Sorry.
"ps. the talon stands for talented" BWAHHAHAHHAHA is this guy serious?
Will be done downloading soon, untill then... enjoy this video.
@ Dylantaloon: whats a 71" HDTV got to do with anything in this topic?! lol... You could also have a 14" black and white tv for gaming for all i care!...
Downloading it now
this game needs more time in the oven....its craptastic or craptacular you guys pick one. Single player looks cool...they should have focused on just that.Now i dont know about either.....
been scouring sites wondering why there is no announcement for this demo... Hell I found one for that battlestations pacific game. Anyways played it last night and it was too laggy to do much so I gotta try again later when more ppl in the US are playing. A weird thing tho after playing it I got a message from some random live user telling me the Lost Planet 2 demo will be out in June...actually I think thats what it says but I dont speak french...
