The question is whether or not the gameplay will be as sweet as it's always been. Find out in our April issue review (on sale March 14), and look for a playable demo to hit Xbox Liveā® Marketplace around the same time.

I hope your very wrong because thats retarted if the demo comes out after the game, PLUS Ubi developers already said it would be out a week before the game is released.

Actually, it says look out for a demo on the Marketplace around the 14th of March.

And anyway. I'm pretty sure OXM would have been unaware of the recent release date change to 9/10 March, so the demo could be out sooner.

Fact is, nobody knows.

I swear people can't read!

I haven't read the full article but the highlighted sentence didn't say anything about the demo accompanying the magazine. Hence, it's not a "bootstrap" demo, only a downloadable one via Marketplace.

I say again, at the time of typing up that article the writer and editor may have been unaware of the shift from late march to early march for release. We could see a demo whenever.

We're going to see the demo when it gets released. That could be late March for all we know and no, it's not ****** for Ubisoft to release a demo after the game has been launched. It happens all the time. In fact, as far as consoles (Xbox specifically) are concerned, it typically happens after the launch and rarely happens before it.

In point of fact, the Rainbow Six 3 multiplayer demo for City Street Large came out well after the release of the game. Most Xbox 360 demos have been released after the individual game's launch. There have been exceptions, but typically that's the case.

Why would they do that, you ask?

Well, they're not making the demo for the people who are going to buy the game. It's a nice extra, but it doesn't sell more copies. What does is when people who hear buzz about an available game and then play the demo and become hooked enough to go out and buy the full version. Same concept as the trial-option on Xbox Live Arcade games. Sure, it was fun to play Far Cry Instincts and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory a few weeks early, but they typically didn't make or break the hardcore fan's decision to buy the games.

Be patient. Stop wetting your pants and just take it easy. The demo will get here when it gets here. People need to calm down and Ubisoft needs to release a statement and then temporarily ban people who continue to bring it up or act as though it's out. It'll be out when it is.

Oh, and to the person who said that they would be releasing it a week beforehand. Not Ubisoft. That was actually Major Nelson and he has yet to test the game, more than likely meaning it isn't even through certification yet.

I wonder how many people are going to jump to the same conclusion and buy the mag because they think the demo is in it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
I'm sure they worded it like that for a reason.
