In stores in the USA tommorow? I thought it was shipping on the 8th (which for most stores means it comes in on the 9th)? (goes to the release date thread)

I'm honestly tired of GRAW info by now. I'm just getting the game tomorrow, or the day after, or the one after the day after, whenever I can.

So much for the demo. OXM probably has the GRAW demo snatched up for their next issue. I'm guessing it's a marketing decision by MS and Ubisoft. The COD2 demo came out almost 3 months after the street date and the sales for COD2 shot right back to #1. I'm predicting a similar scenario. GRAW had too much publicity that it don't need a demo to hype the game up anymore (Much like COD2). I'm guess MS will release the GRAW demo sometime next month or May, after OXM gets the exclusive.

And whatever freaking happen to the Outfit demo promised on March 3rd? MS is really starting to piss gamers off. It's not a very good time to hold out on games! Especially after announcing that Street Fighter II will be on XLA and nothing has surfaced, not even a release date.

Yeah, the marketplace has a lot of potential going to waste, but i'm sure that situation will improve over time..I would have loved a little taste of GRAW before the launch date..but I'll be picking it up regardless--so I guess they won this time! :)

Seems like it ships to stores tommorow in the US, which would make the release date..wednesday? I'm gonna phone EB just to make sure..still think I may buy into that outpost.com deal though..I just hope I get the game in good time.

Hmm, perhaps that's not worth it--with next day air it comes out to $57.63--a little cheaper than $59.99 + 3% but not by much.

"Looking good; can't wait until Friday to do a mission and play multiplayer on xbox live."

Do you have ANY idea how much effort it takes to put a demo on the Marketplace? Who is to say that it's Microsoft's fault that the Outfit demo didn't appear on the 3rd? Who promised that it would appear on the 3rd anyway?
Some people need to get a life I figure, Microsoft doesn't OWE you anything in regard to the demo.
Most normal people will wait for a demo before buying a game but I guess if you have no life and MUST MUST *MUST* have the game on launch day then I guess I can see how some people will be disappointed in a delay in releasing the demo.

I'm sure it takes a lot of effort to put a demo on Marketplace, but it sure would be nice to have a GRAW demo. I'm somewhat on the fence about the game. All the videos and media look good, but I haven't gotten a great sense of whether or not the game will actually be fun. A demo would really help with this.

THQ passed the demo (which has already passed certification) to MS last week and it's been sitting in Microsoft's hands since then.

Friday for europe right? NOPE NOPE NOPE!
How about tomorrow too? :P

I'm in Holland and my gameshop told me they'll have GRAW for sale tomorrow in the morning already...so last week it was still said to be releasing this friday, later on
it was this wednesday and now it's already tomorrow,...oh yeaaaahhhH!

Xbox Marketplace has the demo available to download now.

Major Nelson's blog reiterated how careful they have to be with content to avoid the screw up Ubisoft did with their King Kong Demo.

Yea I know what ya mean lebato we've received the best possbiel graw info there can possibly be and you do get tired of it eventually I like you just want the game now!!!

The marketing for graw was pretty top notch with a demo on marketplace it would've been better.

Wow what a great trailer and even adding the advertisement from ign about the reviews at the end ;)

Smart strategy. As an observer, I must say that the entire demo deal on 360 ROCKS. Great for sales, great for consumers. This and XBL Arcade are really some great features that add a ton of value to devs and consumers.

That looked pretty good and they have added quite a effects since the January build.
Commented on 2006-03-06 22:01:15
The amount of bleating over that demo is unreal. Rewind four months and ask where the free downloads of console demo's came from then!

OXM has a pretty long lead time for their covers. The only "exclusive" they've had so far was Full Auto, and that demo was more or less the X05/TGS one.

A lot of thinking has to go into editing the marketplace content. Sure, Microsoft could flood it with content but that would only ultimately devalue that content for the respective publishers. Look at it this way, THQ are already hard up against it going against GRAW (Even though they are different and good games in their own rights). GRAW is massivley anticipated, The Outfit less so, the demo is their big chance to make a splash before GRAW is out, how pissed are they if the GRAW demo comes out the same day.

MS are doing a great job so far of letting stuff come out when it's ready and drip feeding the marketplace accordingly. It's a difficult balance with a lot of interested parties and factors but they're doing a pretty good job of it so far, give em some slack. Nobody else is doing this yet :-)

Everyone is still talking about The Outfit demo? It's out now, go download it.

Can not wait until GRAW and I think we should have a national week long holiday called GRAWeek.
Ubi is my favorite developer and will continue to be, until I play R6:Vegas and it's a lockdown clone...but at least they have the Rainbow Six 3 lead designer working on it. :-)

man, i just got the chills from that trailer! man ubisoft really knows how to get people excited about a game
Commented on 2006-03-06 23:03:13 In reply to Jato
I still am hoping that we see a game that looks as good as the E3 preview does. Don't get me wrong, the video still looks good (although crappy quality video) but the feeling I got from watching that E3 trailer has been lost and brought down since watching recent videos of this game. None of these videos have the same look as the E3 one did, but I'm just hoping its because none of these videos are from a final build.

Yes and? There were no formal announcements that the demo was coming out on the 3rd, just a bunch of forum posts assuming that it would be released on the 3rd. Anyone with half a brain would figure out that Microsoft wouldn't release a new demo of ANYTHING on a Friday (retail game or even XBLA game for that matter).
It just blows my mind that people would bitch and complain about something free.

Owning an Xbox 360 + Live is free? Where do I sign up? But nevermind that nonsense, aparently IGN doesn't have half a brain: "For those prepped and ready to fight, keep your eyes on Xbox Live Marketplace over the weekend for the demo to appear. We'll have more soon."

Multiple sites reported that the demo would be online last week..so it was perfectly reasonable for people to think that it may have been..and no, not random forum fanboy posts--real "legitimate" gaming sites.

And for many, the Marketplace represents part of the advanced services that MS has been promising w/ Xbox Live 360--services that we pay for by buying their hardware and by subscribing to xbox live..so uh, yea..patience is nice and all, but people are entitled to their opinions..maybe you should be more patient in dealing with other gamers? heh..

I might be wrong here, but I thought that Ubi had stated that the demo would be out a week before the launch.
Now if this has been said, I think you should stick to it, otherwise people will get pist off obviously...
And if they decide to delay the demo, just anounce it, so everybody knows where they're at, otherwise it's just confusing and enoying...
