"I am not sure what purpose would be served by misleading you. We said there will be a demo....and there will be a demo. The simple fact is....The demo HAS been completed....the demo HAS been submitted for approval and posting. We, as devs of the game, have absolutely ZERO control as to when it gets approved or posted."

*UPDATE: From one of the admins at The Show Community.

Blind faith is great but not a requirement when your spending your hard earned cash.
As I will mention, now for the fifth time, the demo is still coming out. If you want to play it before you buy the game, that is perfectly fine and you still have the chance.

What is the issue with this?

It's not as if the game's only going to be available for sale the first day it drops. If you want to play the demo first, then....DON'T BUY THE GAME THE FIRST DAY. This really doesn't seem that difficult. If you need a demo to decide, you probably wouldn't be buying it the first day, anyway. So wait the extra time, download and play the demo, and then go buy it if you like it. You'll still have all spring and summer to enjoy it. And if you don't like it, don't buy and you'll save 60 bucks. Simple.

Its like people are in the mindset that since the demo isn't releasing before the game then there is no demo.
Thank you. Is this so hard for people to understand?

Maybe if we had a date of any kind that would be plausable, but how long should i wait, a week, two weeks? Not one mention was even made of the deal with Best Buy and what effect it would have. Its called setting the expectation of the consumer which they have done by releasing the demo at least two weeks before release.

That's up to you. All I'm saying that if you're going to play the "hard earned cash" card, then you'll probably want to wait as long as it takes to try the game out yourself to make sure that you make an educated decision as to whether or not you want to buy the game. Or, you could always rent it, or even go to Best Buy a couple days after release to try it out before purchasing.

You are the buyer, you have the options and make the decisions.

If it is important to you to get the game asap and you don't want to wait, then you can rent it if you don't want to wait for the demo.

I am getting MLB 10 with or without a demo, but pretty lucky to get a demo? The console world for PS3 and 360 have only helped themselves out most of the time when releasing a demo.

It gets those people who are on the fence to decide and newcomers to jump on board. So to say we are lucky to get a demo I think is the wrong perspective.

if $60 is vital, then I would expect that one would wait as long as it takes to be sure to make a sound, informative decision.

Your missing the point, it just seems a bit assumptive to assume that consumers want to drive to a buisness buddy to play demo. The precedence has been established of having a demo pre-release so when guys wonder where it is, i dont see that as a huge stretch.

isn't just as assumptive to assume that just because the demo isn't out before release that there must be some ulterior motive behind the decision?

I agree, I don't think there IS anything wrong with questioning where the demo is.

But that question has been answered, by a dev team that has never given any reason to be doubted.

Yet regardless of that, people don't believe their explanation and are coming up with theories that this was some sort of a back handed intentional move.


Does anyone have a good reason to believe that they are lying about submitting the patch and waiting on Sony to release it?

I dont really want a demo now, i just wish some of these selfish folks with the game already could post some good video! lol
 
# 134 EnigmaNemesis @ 02/25/10 11:06 PM
This is not hard to figure out people. Both Sony and SCEA SD both took responsibility. There is no "hidden motive" or "conspiracy". Instead you want to piss and moan about what-ifs.

Ramone said they were working on fixing up more bugs before it hit, thus working on the demo was done later this year.

Jason Villa said the demo was finished and approved I believe last Friday (the 19th). That was only 6 days ago. Sony is not going to just put it in front of the list for today when other games and information for the PSN update were already on a schedule (like the G-d of War 3 demo today). It has to wait and go through the process like anything else.

The game is not going anywhere. You don't have to "buy it on release" if there is no demo right away.

There is no entitlement here people. The sooner you realize that, the better off you will be in life. Or it will be one disappointment after another.

First!!
Very disapointed!! > <

Second!...i think it is all business!!
best buy has the authority for the demo(or final build)
then $ony could make more money!!
Plus
the 2K releases the demo on 3/4
that's all $ony's strategy....

i do not blame the SECA
but the $ony..... you...have no respect for people who live out side the us..

Do companies ever admit when they put profit ahead of consumers? I mean come on its not hard to connect the dots. The first year there is no pre-release demo there just happens to be this exclusive deal with Best Buy. Yea im sure its all just random dumb luck and maybe to some it doesnt matter and theres nothing wrong with that. I as a consumer just dont like being taken for granted that regardless their going to get my money.
 
# 137 Jeffery 09 @ 02/25/10 11:15 PM
Its not like Best Buy has the demo version of the game people...They have the FULL GAME! even if there was a PR deal with Best Buy, why would that effect the release of the demo just showing gameplay...and ask yourself what they have to gain by lying to us? many of us have already paid for the game. It's like a bunch of high school kids in here trying to throw all kinds of crazy thoughts and ideas around...it goes back to what enigma said, lose the sense of entitlement.
 
# 138 Galvatron @ 02/25/10 11:15 PM
......I sure hope this thread goes on for the next four days. It'll keep me entertained up until release. The funny thing is,this whole topic will be absolutely moot by then and all will be forgotten like it never happened LOL. Anywho, carry on.

The questions posed were on why the demo wasn't released. This "it's out of our hands" approach doesn't suffice as an answer.

SCEA seemingly signs a Best Buy deal and decided that we should pre-order with no demo to receive the full game on release.

Do they have to? Isn't it common sense that profit is the most important thing?

Again, it's a demo. It's still coming out. No need to take it personal. If you aren't ready to buy it first day, fine, wait for the demo, play it and decide. I don't understand what the issue here is...

Stop making it out like this is one big conspiracy against the consumer. What would that thought process be?

A demo is 2 teams for 3 innings, over and over again. That is no comparison to being able to go to Best Buy and play as your favorite team if you really want to....
