There’s a new article on CVG where Rebellion give us an update on how the demo’s been doing. Basically, it’s had 14,000 downloads on X-Box Live with an approval rating of 4.5/5. There was an issue with the PC demo where people had difficulty with the matchmaking. That was patched almost straight away, however PS3 users are still left unable to play the demo unless you do it via friends. Here’s what they had to say on the matter:
“The one unforeseen issue was the matchmaking on PS3, that really came out of left field and we’ve still got Sony engineers helping us look into what is at fault. I understand why people question how it wasn’t spotted sooner but we just can’t replicate that kind of scale in normal testing.
“Had we left Create and Browse Games in there as with the full game the problem wouldn’t have been so serious. Bottom line is we’re really sorry to all those PS3 owners and are working as fast as possible to find a solution which will help them enjoy the demo too.”
There’s a couple of new articles. There’s a new preview on CHUD, Guardian and XBox360Achievements and an interview on Kotaku. The Kartel have recently uploaded a “mega feature” including interviews, hands-on impressions and more.
There’s also a new review in Game Informer Magazine (scan here) where it scored 5.75/10. I wouldn’t take too much stock of what he said because the things he was complaining about aren’t really relevant. Thanks to Tim, ikarop, newbeing and Richman678 for the news.
