    Default Gow Demo A Reality?

    This was found by diggers...

    http://www.xboxic.com/news/1796

    It clearly shows a picture of the U.K. front end at the UK's XBOX site with a logo for GoW and the word DEMO.

    Could be AFTER release, but nonetheless exciting.

    Epic has always said a post-release demo is possible but they have also said there will NOT be one pre-release.

    Yeah easily after release. The chance that any demo would be pre release is pretty much wiped out imo.

    Could this be the reason that Xbox Live is going to be down for 24 hours?

    #1 Releasing it on E-day (12th) would still be awesome for us non-american folk. We'd get five days to play the demo before launch.

    #2 I'd sell my soul to play the demo, but MS points are a turn-off.

    I'm sticking to it being an early advert for a demo after release.

    See heres the thing, the game is in production already to be sold, theres pretty much nothing EPIC will be doing the game now...

    Even though EPIC have said there will be no demo, its like Bungie saying that there wasnt a Halo3...

    It wouldnt suprise me if a found it self on the market place before launch.. whats stopping them, theres obviously one made, there was one at E3 which was what was seen playing ( the one where it glitched...)

    FiringSquad: We have seen how good the game looks, but can you tell us how does it uses the Xbox 360's multiple processors?

    Comment on what? I don't see Gears of War in that list. There is no Gears demo and there won't be before launch. I suspect that is a generic header with the Gears image in it. There aren't any plans at the moment to make a demo of Gears. We have other things we're going to be working on as soon as Gears has gone gold but I can not elaborate on them at this point in time.

    Just saw the dog tag image with the "Microsoft points". It just isn't true. There is no demo coming out before the game ships and I have no idea if we'll do one after the game ships or not. Right now there are no plans to do one as I said earlier in this thread. I have asked Microsoft to take that image down.

    Get 'um Mark!

    And, Mark, do you know anything about this Gamestop event going on? I'm vastly confused. One of my Gamestops knows about this "event" of afterhours, but said they unfortunately cannot host it. The other 2 have no idea what I'm talking about.

    Also, I'm not even sure what it is (demo, video, etc.)

    I'm guessing they start working on Unreal Tournament for PS3 and 360. There is no way Epic is gonna make just a PS3 and PC version when they have an exclusive 360 game, plus the tools (Epic's and XNA) to make Vista/360 versions are very similar, no? Why hold out on the 360 version? Gears is a different kind of game than Unreal. Is there ANY UE3 game that is exclusive to the PS3? Why would the first come from Epic if MGS is paying for dev costs on some stuff? That would be rude. And aren't the current Epic tools in need of re-tooling for PS3?
    The new "Game Asset factory" they opened in China should help keep dev times down so Epic can pump out more games this Gen, concentrating on making good engines and stories.

    Mark said he couldn't comment on what they were doing next (besides a demo) so i was speculating on what their next project is, but I guess I rambled. Sue me.

    That image could have easily been photoshopped as well.
