If you were hoping to see how the latest game in the long running racing game series would look and run for the PC before the game itself is released for the PC, you will just have to settle for getting the game itself.
It would be nice if they gave us an actual reason as to why PC Gamers aren't getting a demo. I predict this will be heavily pirated now.
Agreed, that's the problem with not releasing demo's, seeing as you can't return PC games, people sceptical about purchasing it, will have to try it out one way or another, and that it to download it, illegally.
And I guess that is the problem - piracy on PC is a casual activity now from MP3s to movies to games. Everyone feels "entitled" for their own bizarre reasons - very few admit to themselves they are simply stealing something just like walking into a shop and lifting it. So, from a developers perspective, why bother to support the PC platform when it'll make a smaller return and cause a lot of hassle supporting all the configurations out there. I'm surprised more games aren't going down the lines of Steam only releases (see Civ 5, and FM2010/11 for recent examples). There are still people moaning about Steam, but if the choice is that or something like Starforce, I'll take Steam thanks. r.
Yes. they arent releasing a PC demo because it will get dpirated.
EA bent over the NFS Undercover players. Steam and other outlets are still selling the Undercover but we cannot play any multiplayer because all of the servers are gone and we cannot play LAN. And EA wonders why people copy their games. When I bought Battlefield Bad Company 2, I felt bent over, because that game will be worthless when there are no more servers. At least with MW2, you can still play LAN. That is why I will not buy any EA games until LAN or server files are added.
Because PC gamers get screwed so much these days sadly
Yes its true. And to make it worse people have been claiming that PC gaming is dying even though it is far from it.
They'd be smart to do like Capcom and release a benchmark if a demo is too much work, a lot people pirate games just to see how well they run, however, no one knows if they follow up and purchase them...
At least you know how it looks/runs. Every pc is different.
The demo is on piratebay.org. Hey-ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
the demo is on xbox live too
I actually feel sorry for the PC gamers, it is such a shame.
XD Full demo on BT FTW Love pc gaming and retarded developers/publishers
Do PC games ever get demos these days?
Some games get them. http://store.steampowered.c...
Yes PC games do get demos these days. Only some games do though. Mafia II got a PC demo.
Piracy destroying Pc gaming,just look at this numbers: cod modern warfare 2: XBOX360 - cca12 million copies sold PS3 - cca 9 million PC - only around 200,000 copies sold disaster :(
Sad but true. I have MW2 on Steam and official servers usually only have about 50-70k people online at peak.
Which goes to show that Prcko is talking out of his ass. A third of all MW2 owners are online at any given time? Funny.
Thats because previous cods supported 50 players plus, limiting it to 9 vs 9 and upping the price is what caused such poor sales. MW2 was a huge step backwards for pc gamers
I know Bad Company 2 got a lot of the sales that Modern Warfare 2 lost. They really ticked off the pc gamers. We'll see if they learn their lesson. I'm betting not.
Yup Xbox 360 or any other consoles dont have piracy in your own fairytale world.
Prcko If those numbers were even remotely true, why in the hell are they making Black Ops for PC? One is true: those numbers are fubar or 200k is good enough for them.
just played the demo and it's meh not that good imo
Pirating demos? Holy **** what am I reading? This is just ridiculous.
What are you gonna do when the publisher thinks we should just buy it blindly.
The demo isnt being Pirated lol. Cant you tell sarcasim?
You can't pirate demos. I was merely reading the comments and I was just like "What?"
Yeah, gotta agree with you PRHB HYBRiiD. I also played the demo brought to you by the folks who made Burnout. And I have to say, meh as well.
If they can't even supply us with a demo I'm not throwing my money out just to see if it's good. The pc version could be a cheap port (probably).
My thoughts exactly. If they can't be bothered to release a demo for the PC, then I can be bothered to pick it up on or close to release. And depending on what copy protection it uses, I may pick it up cheap in a sale or used in a few months time. EA can suite themselves.
if no one else has a copy of the demo how did u find one?? and explain why you said MEH game that corny??
why did i get a disagree by asking is the game corny?? trying to understand the REASONING behind MEH. if meh equal corny i should not got a disagree. but those of u who hate anything i post FUCK YOU
