Well, voucher codes are going out, and fans are going wild with the newly annouced God Of War 3 Ulitmate Edition. With one of our website members being one of the chosen ones for the God of War 3 demo. The God of War 3 demo weighs in at..
Holy crap this game is going to be HUGE!!!!!!
Never got a code but got a MAG beta code to swap if anyone's interested.
Impressive but for your information just one of the Ratchet and Clank demos was 2.5GB and the PS3 Japanese Final Fantasy XIII demo was 5.09GB's.
Agreed The clank demo I played last night was only 100Mbs or so smaller.
The Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time Ratchet Demo is roughly 2.4GB and the Clank Demo is a little over 2.4GB. With huge games like R&C Future: ACIT, MAG and GoW3, you should start getting used to seeing bigger demos.
gonna take me like a friggin week to download whenever i finally get the demo...i have like a 100 kbps dowload speed :(
I've been downloading for 4 hours and I'm still at 70%...
My girlfriend just got the code and it's downloading now!!! I never get into these things (Betas and early access). Will let you all know what i think when I've exhausted it, comparisons to Uncharted 2 graphics will be interesting.
by creation of fake accounts or something? thanks
Yeah this is going to take ages to download on my crap connection
your internet is terrible, and since you are a known anti-sony fan I have trouble believing you, sorry.
They are using blu ray so they can make huge games. I got a code:) PSN is fast usually 1.5MBs per second so I'll be playing it soon. Edit:My hard drive is 320GB and I'll have an awesome tv next week so I'll finally have the complete package, screen, internet connection and hard drive I can't wait for when I switch to the good tv. Uncharted 2 will be mine and GOW3 is going to be jaw dropping when I switch from my 10 year old tv to the new one, can't wait to see the difference:)
Never apologize for keen observation and honesty. 2.5GB is hefty. but this is a groundbreaki9ng game. And of course, PS3 owners have a wide variety of choice when it comes to inexpensive, non-proprietary, hard drives.
" 2.5GIGS?! Holy crap this game is going to be HUGE!!!!!!" Lot of TITANS saying Hello....
GUESS THEY DIDNT COMPRESS IT AT ALL FULL HD ? OR 720p Sheesh i sound like an ms fanboy saying that. but wow HUGE. i thought it came with the collections strictly
I went out to GameStop today just to get the code. Demo is AWESOME. Can't wait til March.
Where in my comments have I ever bashed the PS3? I have a 30mb/s internet connection btw. @Morganfell Whatever kid, you're a complete waste of time anyway.
I got it before, it's 2671mb. i have a 10mb connection and it took 35 minutes to download.
I download 6 gigs in a little over half an hour. A shame my upload is paltry compared to download. I reckon a 35mb/s connection shouldn't take so much as four hours. I'm on a 10-20mb/s connection btw.
Why did you go to gamestop? Is there something you need to buy? I got a code in an email and didn't buy anything or even sign up to anything... Lucky me:) BTW my crappy tv will only display gow3 in black and white... Unlucky me:(
The two R&C demos together are almost as big as a 360 game! Bluray is clearly unnecessary!/sarc
and this stuff is a worry of the past.
chubear its not necessarily a huge game or demo, the downside to blu ray, they dont compress games as much if at all, so game demos are also huge, ive noticed alot of content on psn is larger to download then off xbox live.
Yeah, I dunno, I checked my in-box, and I didn't get the e-mail, so I pre-ordered at Amazon, which is where I actually intend to order the game, and the e-mail didn't come within an hour, so I just went out to GameStop to get the voucher. Took me all of 30 minutes to go out and get the voucher, and I was playing the demo not too long after, so it was worth it.
*sigh* gamesonsmash with their hits tactics... Weighs in at............................ ... Oh well, thank you commentors for putting it in the comments.
they couldnt put that on N$g?? They really had to make you click??
Wow... so the U.S. gets the shaft for now... Dang it... Why does it have to be a GoWIII demo shaft... AHHHHHHH I want to play it!
If you've seen the E3 videos and screenshots there aren't any surprises but yeh the game looks awesome. Kratos looks amazing his skin is very detailed and blood from enemies splashes over it realistically. The environments look amazing but aren't on a par with Uncharted 2. The environments tend to be geared towards very dynamic lighting and are very dark and moody, take note Diablo 3. Very impressed but at this stage I think that there is room for graphical improvement. The animations aren't as good as Uncharted 2, they just don't feel as fluid but then again this is an old build of the game which isn't due out for many months. The graphics are excellent overall but it seems that what impresses is their "epicness", the size of the environments and the drip, drip of a story that hints at a bigger battle going on all around you. The gameplay is very similar to past installments though slightly more frenetic and yet fluid. Much like the tony Hawk series the gameplay seems to have improved not by adding more moves but by encouraging more chaining together of separate move sets. The platforming bits were a little fiddly and these are the parts where I found myself dying. My girlfriend who was watching and has seen no trailer footage, was wincing at the gore in the demo and was genuinely repulsed by a lot of it particularly when I sliced the snake tail off a chimera leaving a bloody stump. GOW3 is now my most wanted.
Ratchet and Clank and this demo are both about 2.5 gigs. Makes me wonder how big future demos will be. Like Heavy Rain and so...
Remember folks. The more you download that demo the more it costs the company that made it! Yay for PSN charges!
@starvinbull Thanks for your impressions. I'm really excited about GoW3. Gow3 demo hands-ons have been extremely positive, in every dept from impressive visuals to gameplay. We shouldnt be worried about the small details like no so fluid animation, dont forget this is the E3 (june) demo, and even so the game boast this unbelievable level of polish. I cant wait to get this game.
@1.1: Thanks for giving the number so I didn't have to give in to the subby's click-whore tactic. Bubbs for you.
I just got a code in my e mail :}
at local shopping centre for 5 mins each. Both looked amazing. No email code, though. My 50Mbs works a treat for downloading both R&C demos. An aside: Got email over week ago to download Motorstorm Artic Edge demo for my PSP but it is still not on PSN yet!!
played it last night. i really want it. it looks to be epic and this demo is a work in progress. i can only imagine what the final product will look like.
Sweet, can't wait to see how big the real game is.
got my code. to bad cant play it till after work
where are u guys getting the code from? spartan army, pre-order or what?? :)
I don't get it how does this works?
playing it right now.......for the 4th time GO TO YOUR LOCAL GAMESTOP SHOULD HAVE THEM...plus you get the first ever sketch of kratos as a in game skin for gow3
Wow, big file. I can't wait to try it out, it's going to be awesome
8QQL-54BL-F2RA MAY THE BEST GAMER WIN. ps360 FTFW
Downloading now - May take a while though...
Well you're wrong disagree boy, it DID take a while.
Don't get too excited people, both R+C demos are bigger than that. But MS is in a big doo-doo soon.
just got my code. I live in europe and the code give away is random. I am a lucky basterd or maybe i just spend a lot of money on psn lol. downloading right now. aaaaah can't freaking wait
Yeah, I'm English and was surprised to see this pop into my 'in box'. I don't know what the criteria is for getting a code, but this is the first time I've ever received one so feel rather lucky that it's for such a big title.
not to sure how they pick who get codes. think it may be a couple of things. how much you spend on the store. how much time you spend on psn. I get a few betas without having to do anything.
Wow, a reason to check my Email! Gonna have to delete a thousand Emails! Edit: I am invited to the MAG beta August 19! I should check this more often! Edit: The code you entered is no longer valid.
i got mine downloading it now
Holy crap, it's taking forever to DL. 56%...
it should take a lifetime to download
2.6 GB! I think that is the biggest demo I have ever seen! Either it’s a really long demo (if so, the actually game must be HUGE), or graphically intense…ah hell, why not both. ;) Between the God of War Collection having trophies and the God of War III Ultimate Edition, my wallet feels… lighter.
Ok, I've never received demo codes. How you get them? I'm signed up for Playstation Underground and registered my PS3 online. Do I have to do anything special?
You're in US, not EUROPE.
got my code kids. =[
got the code and downloading now. thank you sony
I personally dont care how big much space the the game takes up as long as its good.. I dont see why folks are so excited about the size of it,it's uncompressed material so its expected to be big.
Don't tease Xbots plz. They have RROD to worry about as it is. XD
...and kinda being prepared for when M$ literally owns them when they drop support, gotta save your pennies for HYPTAL huh? BTW expect the xbox brand to be officially finished around September next year :P
I got a mother f*^%^ng code. Cannot believe it, I saw this article thought I'd best check my emails and bam! The newest email read 'download your exclusive God of war 3 demo now!' Sweet gona download asap. Cheers sony.
I didn't get a code. :( Sony knows I don't need a demo to buy it. :(
What may have pushed them in to getting a code to me is that last month I downloaded the Chains of Olympus demo for my psp. Also to those who didn't get one here's a bit of the text: 'As a valued PlayStation®Network user, you’ve been rewarded with a voucher code to download an exclusive God of War® III demo. This is your chance to experience a glimpse of the limitless power of the gods. The epic scale of God of War III reaches new heights as Kratos rains carnage and destruction upon the gods who have betrayed him and the entire Ancient Greek world. Armed with the deadly Blades of Chaos, take on mythology’s darkest creatures while solving intricate puzzles on a merciless quest to destroy Olympus and the mighty Zeus himself.'
Just got my code ... ( wasn't anything 30 minutes ago ) now it's there ... They did said that they were sending them by vagues ...
I have to say, I've got early access to a lot of PS3 betas/demos and things like that, maybe they've decided they need to stop giving me free stuff. I just bought PixelJunk Monsters yesterday, maybe that made me less manly via their selection standards, so access was denied. :P
So this is for the EU region only? Hmm... I should have probably used a real email address when I made that account..
SAME HERE, LAMO. Actually opposite of LAMO. :(
im gonna throw out a code....not the gow code though. maybe mag beta maybe NG2S...maybe uncharted 2 code of some kind...keep a look out :D be gamers not fanboys GOW3 is..simply amazing ..not the oj
More info about Gow3 is highly appreciated. How good the visuals are? I'm gonna get my demo voucher with my GoW Collection but I cant wait to know more
