I suppose! But what if they don't even release a demo? Or what if they release it after the game comes out. You have to consider what "not immediate future" really means in this situation. If you know what I mean :)
With them slashing 100+ people MP I want to play a demo before i dump out $40 on Bf2 and want to hear some opnions and reviews on it:D OH well a demo would be nice...give up some tangible info then
im really hoping that they work on the net code, figure some things out and release a patch with 100 player MP. Even if it is months after the release, its better late than never.
DDDandrew...the last I heard from Mike Murphy, the demo wasn't going to be released soon...
When was the last you heard? Things change fast in the PC, and Gaming worlds. Soon, usually means, less than 2 months. Although Development does have its own clock...
It would stink if we had to wait untill the game was released, to get a demo. However it would mean the demo will be a more true representation of gameplay.
Ha I rememebr back to when the original BF1942 Wake MP demo came out. Everyone was all over it, but it was not even an accurate representation of what the actual game was. Of course back then, no one really cared because it was the first game ever to do the whole "combined arms" thing.
I'm really hoping for a BF2 demo soon.
I didn't make it!
whichever fool said they like to release demo before games..well im sorry but thats the point of a demo for any company BEFORE THE FULL RETAIL. they will not release a game demo 2 months before, it will be more like 3 weeks before.
well, if they did release a demo im sure ea would sell more because some ppl will say, like i have many times before myself, 'ohhh ill wait, ill play the demo first', which i did with call of duty, i got the SP demo and now i love the game, i think its brilliant, but i wouldnt have bought it without playing the demo first, an the same happened with farcry
Indeed. The Gaming Publishers are mixed on this point. Several see Eagle's point, and release demo's before the game is actually released.
Pre-Release Demo 1. Gets people excited about the game, increaing initial sales. 2. Lets people know what kind of game it will be. 3. May or May not reflect the Gameplay of the actual game (renders it nearly useless). 4. Buggy, shows the game in an incomplete state, with abnormal crashes, that may decrease popularity.
Post-Release Demo. 1. Lets people know what kind of game it is. 2. Gets people excited about the game, increaing total sales. 3. Gives the gamer a good idea of how well it will run on their PC. 4. Gives a more accurate representation of Gameplay, that will be in the Full game. 5. More stable, fewer glitches, you'll have a better idea of whether its your PC, or the game.
I aint gonna get this game unless they fix the ragdoll deaths,the *pull out ur parachute right before u hit the ground*thing,and the 10 shots to kill
