DENGEKI confirmed that DMC x360 version has been cancelled for JAPAN .In Japan DMC 4 x360 wont even sell 50k copies.

PS3 version will sell over a million there as well as in EU

2008 sees total ps3 domination

Seriously ALL PS3 owners will get to enjoy this demo on the day one when the DMC4 demo comes out..As for the 360's owner they need to upgrade to gold to get that wait a week or two for it.I know it sucks to be a 360 owner and plus this game will crap out a lot of 360s.

This summer I was in Japan visiting my girlfriends relatives and I had the fortune (or misfortune) of trying out the DMC4 demo on a ps3 station tucked deep in "a hole in the wall" game shop in Akihabara.

Of course the DS section had completely overtaken the first floor and it was extremely hard to find my way upstairs to the ps2/psp/ps3 and 360 section, but I waded through and got there (somehow).

After flipping through a ninja gaiden demo and displaying my demo skills to the local japanese kids I decided to give a shot at testing out DMC4. Mind you I was only a huge fan of 1 and portions of 3, but I wasn't as attached to the series as most. I was actually in the game store looking for a psp game called Boxers Road 2 (which i didn't find).

So how was the demo? From my impressions of about 30 minutes with a 10 minute demo I came away somewhat unimpressed. The graphics were certainly nice, but I couldn't truly appreciate them with all the slowdowns. On top of that the character animations seemed boring and repetitive. Nothing like the newly released trailer so I'm pretty sure I was playing an extremely early build. The level design, which i believe will be kept in tact was sort of boring from a layout perspective, but impressive from a visual standpoint.

-Instead of interesting puzzles I had to use a zip line to get from one balcony to the other.

-Instead of flashy AND useful moves I just kept using the same combos as they seemed the most effective. (At this point I had a feeling the demo only allows you to use just a handful of moves)

+The Arm was certainly a cool add on. Probably the best part of the new character and combat system. There's nothing like slamming it down into the ground to back up a horde of enemies.

-The level layout was boring and extremely linear, but that's not really bad, just uneventful as a whole after coming off of God of War II, which at that point I had just completed.

+The visuals of the level I played were eye pleasing. It took me from a sort of castle looking market area, to a pier where I could see some of the water effects and enemies.

-Unfortunately there was a lot of slowdown, but i'm almost certain they'll fix that or have already fixed it by now.

But yea. The demo I played was pretty cool overall and i'm sure some DMC fans will be pleased, but from what I played I'll hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.

looking forward to DMC4 on the Xbox 360, hopefully Dante's latest outing won't disappoint. I also look forward to seeing this look and play better on the Xbox 360 thanks to its superior next-gen design and award winning features

mighty_douche4984d ago

ok mate, 3 year old PC components, guess that makes my PC next-next-next-next-gen design.

Anyone, yeah im looking forward to getting my hands on a DMC game, seems like ever since the last one.
but didnt we already know a demo was coming?

Xemnas4984d ago

Better on 360 huh...hmm...oh boy hear we go agian.

Meus Renaissance4984d ago

Why do people even fall for this anymore? Zhuk is actually an intelligent person but wants to get on the nerves of other fans with his marketing comments.

chelcho4984d ago (Edited 4984d ago )

Are you Zhuk member of M$ PR or marketing?
You are inteligent and your strange bias towards M$ makes you unreliable.

WilliamRLBaker4984d ago (Edited 4984d ago )

many games we're lead platformed on the ps2 and then ported to the xbox and we're vastly superior....

lol foolish the ps3 isn't that way its architecture that basically screams forget every thing you learnt in the past 20 years and start over makes it crappy when it comes to games ported from the 360, not the other way around games actually shine better...ect then their ps3 counterparts when they are ported its been said by a few devs all ready.

another disagree with a fact:) lol its a FACT devs have been found saying when a game is ported from ps3 to 360 is vastly easier and the 360 version outshines...not the other way around...


I could post more...

Oh and 360 is better then ps2 and ps3 combined at every

2nd edit: lets see 360 has more world wide user base, 360 outsells the ps3 in pretty much every region, except outer europe and japan, 360 has vastly more AA's and AAA's then ps3:) oh and lets add that uncharted ps3's gem of a game (laugh) only sold 7k units in japan.

oh and rolf i have you ignored but

oh and you wouldn't play it on a 360 controller cause your a sonyfanboy there is no other reason and you know it.

Killjoy30004984d ago

yeah ok a playstation classic being better on xbox360? lol i dont think so. thats like me saying halo 2 shoudlve gone to ps2. it just doesnt make sense. and stop saying award winning because the tech in the xbox has won no awards at all and if it has tell me these awards and who issued them @sshole

rofldings4984d ago (Edited 4984d ago )

"Oh and 360 is better then ps2 and ps3 combined at every"

With a comment like that, I should take everything you say seriously, right?


"lol its a FACT devs have been found saying when a game is ported from ps3 to 360 is vastly easier and the 360 version outshines...not the other way around..."

You're an idiot. If you're referring to that article that was posted on N4G a while ago. It's obvious that the 360's powerpc architecture is easier to code for than the PS3's - but if coded for PS3 first, it is easy to trasnfer the code to the 360's architecture, it doesn't "outshine" the ps3 version if made for the PS3 first. Your 360 is already an outdated PC, the PS3's full potential hasn't even been used yet.

Btw, I would never play DMC on a 360 controller. No thanks.

MADGameR4983d ago

THANKS to the NEWEST 360 feature! RRoD! LOL! Sure man..... and Halo 3 looks waaaaaay better than Crysis on DX10 ROFL!!! Seriously though, not every multi plat will look better on the 360, my bets this game will look better on PS3.

razer4983d ago

It's being developed on each system to take advantage of the hardware of each system. The comparisons between 360 vs PS3 will be huge news when this releases..

gEnKiE4984d ago

Edit: And people disagreed? Sheesh, it's already started, see rest of this article. I wish people would just say, "Cool, Excellent!", instead of b1tching about my console is bigger than your console, my console can take yours etc.. I still say by Atari 2600 can take you all on anyday..

mighty_douche4984d ago

"lol X console has better shoe lace textures than Y console.... X console is teh pwnerer....."

felidae4984d ago

lol. yeah, the best version will be on the 360 - the 1st really true last gen console ;-)

PS3 is the future, trash your 3fixme and get a life.

turbogeek4984d ago (Edited 4984d ago )
