Videos from the demo of NFS: Most Wanted 360

Videos from the demo of NFS: Most Wanted 360

The demo of Need for Speed: Most Wanted for Xbox 360 is now available in the Live Marketplace. Since I still do not have the full version I've decided to use it to make a few videos of the game. I have to say that I've been quite pleasantly surprised by the gameplay, the sound and also the graphics, but unfortunately the framerate is just horrible :(

cool, il be Dling that, theres a king kong demo on XBL marketplace as well i think :)

Really? framerate bad, grr, i played the xbox demo this month on the demo disk and while it was fun, the framerate was really bad, i thought they would have cleaned it up like they did with the graphics and such for this version!
Commented on 2005-11-27 16:20:04
grr, cant find the 'edit' button!

anyway. I've seen direct feed videos from Gametrailers.com and IGN and such and the framerate looked pretty flawless there! Strange

Mmmmmmmm, on some turns the framerate went down, specially before you saw the first Police Car...............

I was wondering if anyone here have played both the XBOX 360 version and the PC version.
If so do it look much bether on XBOX 360?

I have played the PC version and I just watched this video.
I can't see much differens.
Maybe its a little bit sharper and the reflection on the car is a little bit betther.
But not much else.

It's about 950 MBytes big. I downloaded it at about 450 kbytes/s so it was quick.

blim i gotta ask you this i've tried to find an answer everywhere but couldn't: I know x360 demos are free to download but is the subscription free to sign up for that you need for downloading the demos? I dont have a HD yet so i cant download anything on my xbox.

thanks

Yes, Live Silver is enough to download stuff.
Commented on 2005-11-27 16:53:15
950mb? thats large!

So, once downloaded is there a menu in the 360 guide where the demos are stored?
I think its a really nice idea that, download demos straight to console

Btw blim, when capturing ur video, is it running at 480, 720p or 1080i?

Video looked good, can't wait to get my copy.
What option are available to play online?
Do you all just race and have cops chasing you? or can some of you be cops and some racers ?

I've heard that the framerate on the demo was abysmal, like you said, however I can attest that the final version has none of these problems. It's a perfect 30fps all the time.
Commented on 2005-11-27 16:59:08
Terrible game, NFS hasn't been the same since this move to these childish cars/mods/scenarios. :(
Commented on 2005-11-27 17:00:29
ah, thanks for that 'mukieNS' :) good to know that they sorted it!

Seems odd that a demo that was released now after the console launch isnt as good in terms of FPS as the launch game :P THey prob used old demo!
Commented on 2005-11-27 17:10:11
ewww, an underperforming demo, eh?

That's not gonna be good for retail.
Commented on 2005-11-27 17:24:53
Does it cost any money to download demo's from the marketplace?

Glad to hear it. I was surprised by how fun a game it seemed to be. I hope EA will send the game to me then (one can dream)

Ok that's a relief. And jekyl200 you don't have to get so aggresif, not everybody has the time to stay tuned with every little detail about the Xbox 360.
Commented on 2005-11-27 17:32:26
interesting to read that it´s quite cool.
i just liked the old school nfs way better the underground series...
oh well, pgr3 is the launch game for my racing needs :)
Commented on 2005-11-27 18:35:13
Yea I get this demo to. I compare the demo with PG3 and is a shame for EA really haha, and there is no a king kong demo on the Market Place. Only a Kameo demo and NFS Most Wanted. The rest are only trailers.
Commented on 2005-11-27 19:11:36
Somehow I doubt any of you will be downloading the NFS demo. It's actually been on the servers for a while now, but you'd be lucky to download half the file without your download being interrupted. I can't even DL the Kameo demo, and I've been trying since launch. Busy servers.

BTW, there's also an NBA Live demo up there. No luck with that one either. So far all I've been able to DL is trailers.

How fast is your connection?
Commented on 2005-11-27 19:49:44
Blim, one simple question.

So it doesn't cost any money to download demos (that would suck since PC demos are MANY and FREE). But how many demos are there available right now? Do you think they'll keep supporting that feature, which would basically mean no more waiting for OXM demos?

EDIT: Can you also download gameplay videos of future games, or trailes, etc etc?

THANKS!

:D

For the moment only 3 demos are available, Kameo, NBA Live and NFS:MW

Only trailers, there are about 10 available, all in 480p and 720p resolution.

Btw this is for a someone in France, it certainly could be different in other countries.

Blim, when u are capturing the video footage, is it at 480, 720 or 1080?
