The Xbox 360 Brutal Legend demo is now available to all Xbox Live Gold members. Previous, it was only available to those who pre-ordered the game (which seems to essentially defeat the purpose of a demo, to me). Regardless, more details here (Slightly off topic, and I know it’s not exactly a brand new feature, but I like how you can add items to your queue and they start downloading once you turn on your 360, great for adding stuff at work so you don’t forget later). I can’t wait to finally try out the game.
Sony confirmed today that the E3 demo for God of War 3 will be included with the God of War Collection, which is scheduled to be released on November 10. The game will come with a voucher code to download the demo from the PlayStation Network (since it’s not on the disc, that might indicate they plan to release the demo to everyone sometime in the future). The PS3 collection runs $39.99 and seems like a pretty good deal if you haven’t played any of the series, especially with the God of War III demo included.
EA announced today that the demo for Double Fine’s Brutal Legend will be out September 17th for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
“We just couldn’t wait,” Double Fine president Tim Schafer said in a press reelase. “Villagers have surrounded our offices with torches, demanding the game. So we’re releasing a demo and hope that this taste of metal will keep the mob at bay until Brütal Legend comes out this Rocktober.”
The new multiplayer Bionic Commando demo is available today on Xbox Live’s Marketplace. Once downloaded, gamers will be able to compete in Deathmatch battles on ‘Vertigo’, one of the game’s 16 multiplayer maps. This intensive training will provide invaluable experience before they take on the full mission with the release of Bionic Commando on Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3 across North America on May 19 th, 2009.
If you don’t own Dead Space, be sure to check out the demo that’s out today on both Xbox Live and the PSN (in Europe it’s out on the PSN the 27th). It gets the awesome radical seal of approval, if you’re a fan of survival horror games, or just radical games in general, you should definitely check it out.
The demo will be available at the PlayStation®Store in North America and Xbox LIVE® Marketplace worldwide*. In Europe, the demo will be available at the PlayStation Store on November 27th.
Winner of over 27 critic awards and currently nominated for Best Action Adventure Game on Spike TV’s upcoming 2008 Video Game Awards on December 14th, gamers can experience a taste of, as GamePro magazine says, “…one of the best survival horror experiences ever created.” Now, before experimenting on a turkey this Thanksgiving, you can tear the Necromorphs apart limb by limb with four different futuristic mining tools, and Isaac Clarke’s telekinesis and stasis abilities.
Valve’s Gabe Newell has confirmed plans for a PC and Xbox 360 demo of their upcoming survival horror game, Left 4 Dead. The demo will contain both single player and online co-op modes. There’s no set release date for the demo yet. Left 4 Dead is scheduled for release at the end of November, and the article doesn’t make it clear if the demo will be released before or after it’s already out. As for what content will be in the demo, Newell said “I think it’s going to contain the first part of one of the campaigns. I think it’ll probably be Hospital but I’m not sure.” I hate zombies so much.

I don’t know what to say really, I mean cybernetic Norse gods seem pretty radical, and it’s developed by Silicon Knights, but for some reason I just haven’t been anticipating the game that much. However, with the demo now coming out my opinion might change, I’m definitely going to check it out.

Yeah, 1 million times. That’s like 25,000 downloads a day. I’m one of those 1 million people. I haven’t played it yet, but that doesn’t matter. What does matter is I downloaded it, I helped. The whole press release is below:

That’s right, this Thursday the playable demo for Devil May Cry 4 will be downloadable through both the Playstation Store and Xbox Live. Awesome, I can’t wait to play the game. All the details are below:
Warm those broadband connections. The Devil May Cry® 4 playable demo hits both the PLAYSTATION®Store and Xbox LIVE® Marketplace this Thursday, January 24, 2008. Devil May Cry 4 has been rated M for Mature by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB).
The demo introduces gamers to the gothic-inspired supernatural world of Devil May Cry 4, new protagonist Nero and the awesome power of his Devil Bringer. The demo consists of a sampling of sections from the full game, chosen to showcase Devil May Cry 4’s varied locales, allowing gamers to familiarize themselves with Nero’s unique abilities. Players will receive instruction on the various new actions that the Devil Bringer bestows, such as the ability to slam creatures to the ground, cover great distances in a single bound or even grab enemies while on the ground or in the air and pull them towards Nero to continue an attack combo. The Exceed system allows Nero to “rev up” his sword as if it were a motorcycle throttle and unleash devastating attacks. Players will need to master all these techniques before the end-of-demo showdown with the mighty Berial.
Fully demonstrating the power of the next generation of consoles, the Devil May Cry 4 demo brings to life the coastal city of Fortuna and its surroundings in exquisite detail, such as the port and the snow-capped mountain ranges. Devil May Cry 4 delivers its intense action at a constant 60 frames per second at 720P resolution on HD monitors, ensuring seamless and breathtaking gameplay in stunning high definition.
