I believe that Ubisoft will not give us a demo ever for this game. Or at least that is a likely possibility. I will explain my reasoning by explaining the purpose of a demo. A demo is intended to introduce a product into the community with the overall goal of increasing sales. This game is hyped up to such an incredible degree that releasing a demo would actually decrease sales. The reason for that is people would think the game is better than what it actually is and they wouldn't be impressed by the demo.

So, how do we get a demo? The answer is simple, money!!! Money can get you any tangible thing in this world. So if Ubisoft charged 500 microsoft points for the demo I think they would do it because then the demo would become profitable. And I'm sure eager hard-core fans would pay a measly 5 dollars to play assassins creed....right???????

The fans get assassins creed the company gets their money, the world goes round.

You've got a very shaky argument there.
Assassin's Creed isn't NEARLY as hyped up as other games such as Halo 3 and GTA4. A demo would provide that extra much needed hype to boost sales.

You're assuming that the demo won't live up to people's expectations. That's exactly what is is, an assumption.

Charging money for a demo is ridiculous. I don't recall a single game that every forced you to pay for a demo (not counting demo disks and the like).

Exactly, no game ever charged for a demo. If people REALLY wanted a demo 3!! months before the game comes out the only realistic way would be to charge. Besides Halo3 and GTA4 which is coming out next year assassins is still PRETTY HYPED. An article in IGN said that since GTA got delayed call of duty 4 and assassins creed will benefit in sales as in a survey conducted by a company 91% of gamers on 360 said they were interested in buying cod4 and GTA4 and 71% said assassins creed and GTA4. I think people under estimate assassins creed. And a demo does RELIEVE hype of a game because you've actually played it. Maybe ubisoft could create an experiment where they would be the first ones to charge for a demo. Who knows? But I still stay charging for a demo is the only way we will see one now.

We have people making retractable daggers, there is even Altair costumes. People are crazy for this game, especially on this forum. If you wouldn't pay 5 dollars for a demo 3 months before release, how could you guys call yourself TRUE assassins creed fans

I don't think charging money for a demo would make them very populair.
And now there are people who think AC suck, since there where bugs in the demo. If Ubi would release a demo, without that bugs, they might think again about Ubi.

A demo is a preview, not a "lite" version of a game...

Exactly, a preview. Who wouldn't pay 5 dollars to get a "preview" of assassins creed. Besides people who complain about bugs before release are people who just like to complain.

If people want a demo NOW. Instead of 3 months from now, the only way it would make it worth it for the COMPANY would be to charge.

Me, myself, don't think this will work. I think in october, or early november they will release a demo. But its just an idea you know.

HOW is my logic flawed? When I played the halo 3 beta the hype for halo 3 DECREASED. Because, I played the game already. The graphics aren't as great as the final release but I experienced the basic gameplay. It's like when you get assassins creed when it comes out, you will be totally hyped, and then after a week the hype goes away, because you know if you want to play it, it is right there in your console.

And assassins creed is probably in the top 10 games hyped this fall, across all platforms

Who wouldn't pay 5 dollars to get assassins creed this second????? I mean really, if you wouldn't YOUR logic is flawed.

Oh well, I guess you're right that's the only way, now.
But that would make Ubisoft look like an evil company who does everything to get money. And that would be pretty bad for them.

EDIT: And I wouldn't pay $5 for a demo. I'd use the demo just to see if AC would run on my pc. Probably it won't, so that's $5 wasted... There's so much good you can do with $5 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

How childish. Every company does anything for money. They pay advertisers and do campaigns and shows to SHOW a good image, but at the heart of every company is money

These forums, the website, the wallpapers. It's all marketing. It's all subduing you to buy their product.

Actually, I think that the "REAL" games are the ones that AREN'T sports games. Because sports games are well sports. Videogames are more like fantasy entertainment. Like goblins, and wizards, and all the nerdy stuff. Those are REAL videogames. Sports games were created for the non-geeks so compaines can broaden their demographic and make more money. Thus the "casual" gamer was born.

that seems so stupid. your acting like its a bargain, and GPNM is right, this game isn't really that hyped. It's in magazines everynow and again, but even games like beautiful katamari get more press. And 500 microsoft points is actually around 8 dollars i think, not five, cause im pretty sure 80 points is a dollar, and even so, PSN and PC people wouldnt get a demo unless they use credit cards and that blows cause you dont know what kinda hidden charges there could be, and who knows, maybe they just arent ready for a demo to release yet.

It IS A BARGAIN. WORK ONE HOUR IN LIFE ON AVERAGE WAGE AND GET ASSASSINS CREED. lol.
Well with xbox live points i use my dad's credit card. If you buy points in store there is tax so it doesn't pay. I did sign the petition.

And maybe its NOT hyped. Charging for the demo would fill a niche in the hardcore audience that it rightfully deserves

How about signing a petition for "I want assassins creed NOW for 5(no 8) bucks" lol.

P.S. seriously the petition thing was a joke for the ppl who take it seriously

Why doesnt the niche need to be filled. I thought everyone at these forums was hyped and wanted this game. Apparently, I was wrong. 8 dollars 3 months before is a bargain. 8 dollars 2 weeks before is not. If they do make a demo later on, closer to release date they shouldn't charge

Look, I'd like a demo very much, but your logic is just ****ing nonsense, man.

I for one wouldn't pay for a demo when I can download a few hundred for free off the internet/Xbox Live (PSN if I had it) - feel free to quote me if you agree, it might knock some sense into this guy.

Making people pay for an incomplete, limited demo is far from realistic, so you can go ahead and take that part out of your title. I'll say they'd make $100, max.

Most games are linear so its easy to just limit a portion of the map for a demo. For AC however, its of a sandbox level design so completing an objective would essentially require access to an entire city. This is why there are no demos for games like GTA and Oblivion.

That still doesn't explain why Ubisoft should charge a demo. Lost Planet had a demo released more than 3 months in advance and it was still free.

If Ubi charged $5 for a demo then people would be angry. I highly doubt that they would do that anyway. Ubi knows that we want a demo and is currently thinking about what they should do.

Releasing a demo wouldn't make sales go down because we've seen enough gameplay footage know if we want to buy it or not. We've heard about the controls and so on. You can usually tell if a game is good/fun just by looking at it.

Lost Planet sucked.

You guys WOULDN'T pay 5 dollars for a demo if they released it now??!!!

I wouldn't pay 5 dollars if the demo came out two weeks before release but 3 months before???!!

Motorstorm, ahhh screw Sony. And Lost Planet NEEDED that demo badly to boost sales.

Here are my conditions. If the demo came out TODAY. For 500 microsoft points, none of you would download it??!! I think I got the wrong impression then

08-05-2007, 02:34 PM
I wouldn't pay to download the demo, I'd rather just put that money towards my reserve of the actual game. I"m not that impatient, I can wait.

Motorstorm is actually a pretty good racing game, and Lost Planet was fun until it morphed from a TPS to a mech game (if you've played it, you know what I mean).

But thats YOU. The average casual gamer barely knows anything about halo 3 nevermind assassins creed. It's just I thought ppl would pay 5 dollars to play it today, with all the "I want the demo" "I made a switch blade" "Look at these new screens" threads. It would be a great present to the hardcore audience, wait. How about 200 microsoft points. Like 2.50 dollars. A large french fry is pratically that much.

I just thought ppl wouldn't be so cheap when they love the game so much.


EDIT: I want to make my position clear.
A demo today for 5 dollars is in my opinion a good bargain. I am all for NOT paying it. However, I would pay it if Ubi made it so I had too. I suggested the idea that we pay for the demo as an incentive for Ubi to make one, not because I enjoy spending money. If the demo came out 2 weeks to a month earlier, paying would be stupid, but I am such a big fan I would probably do it anyway. It is Ubi's tradition to make demos for their games and I hope they carry through with a free one. But the only way I would see a demo in the month of August would be if you had to pay for it. I hope I am wrong and Ubi is a very charitable company, but I don't want to get my hopes up. I am sorry for getting everyone so inflamed and for not stating my argument clearer.

Now a second thought. Would you pay for multiplayer. I know there is no planned multiplayer. But if they released it in a downloadable format would you pay 500 microsoft points for it.

I think the biggest problem of all with this entire thing is: THERE IS NO DEMO. The guys at Ubisoft know exactly how much we want a demo, and they knew it when they told us a little while ago that there wouldn't be one.

Ubisoft knows perfectly well they could charge for a demo, but they also realize the enormous backlash they would get from the gaming community as a whole if they chose to charge for it. Every other company releases demos for free, and in this world filled with micro-transactions everyone knows we are a quarter of an inch away from being nickel and dime'd to death for things that should be free.

The average casual gamer knows nothing about Halo 3 never mind Assassins Creed? I don't even know what to say about this. Earlier you were citing the extreme hype based around Assassins Creed, but now your saying casual gamers don't know anything about it or Halo 3? You're trying to tell me that the game which has 4 million + pre-orders hasn't garnered the attention of casual gamers? This doesn't even have any relevance to this this but I just thought it was plain wrong.

If you're trying to gather attention of casual gamers, you aren't gonna do it by charging 5 bucks for a demo...

It's been said already, this game has a whole lot of attention on it, admittedly not as much as Halo 3, but I mean, how many people would buy an Assassins Creed styled 360?

For one, the discussion of a demo for AC has been done to death, no sense in opening a new thread for it. Also, if Ubisoft were to decide to start making a demo right now, it would take months to complete and by the time they finish it, the game would have already been released. Finally, with comments like "Lost Planet sucks" and "screw Sony", its apparent that this thread will resort to a fanboy flame war that's all too common on this forum.

-I'd like to point out that there is a demo for Saints Row on the Marketplace.

-500 points is closer to $6, actually. *breaks out calculator* $6.25

-No, I would not pay $6.25 to get a demo 3 months early, even if it was a demo for Assassin's Creed. I'm going to buy the game when it comes out anyway. Why should I give Ubisoft another $6.25 just to get a shortened, restricted, buggy version of one mission when I can easily wait 3 more months for the full game?

The whole logic behind a demo is to promote the game. If Ubisoft charged for the game that would generally piss the ever-lovin $**t out of the gaming community. So why would they spend 4 years of work just to f*** everything up at the end? Come on Ubisoft isn't full of idiots, hell they made the game that proves it. So if they do release a demo it will be out either this month(August), Or in early to mid-September. After that they'll just make us "ride the hype" until the release.

Dude you are totally wrong, I mean games don't need to have goblins and wizards and nerdy stuff. Perhaps you like nerdy stuff but I'm a hardcore gamer and I have played a lot of games and the only time I have played a game that includes goblins and wizards is when I played Oblivion and Warcraft.

An article in IGN said that since GTA got delayed call of duty 4 and assassins creed will benefit in sales as in a survey conducted by a company 91% of gamers on 360 said they were interested in buying cod4 and GTA4 and 71% said assassins creed and GTA4. I think people under estimate assassins creed. And a demo does RELIEVE hype of a game because you've actually played it. Maybe ubisoft could create an experiment where they would be the first ones to charge for a demo. Who knows? But I still stay charging for a demo is the only way we will see one now.

We have people making retractable daggers, there is even Altair costumes. People are crazy for this game, especially on this forum. If you wouldn't pay 5 dollars for a demo 3 months before release, how could you guys call yourself TRUE assassins creed fans

um buddy up till the 2 of aug... both GTA4 and halo 3 were both slated for this year... in fact Halo is still slated for this year. (last I heard) So your argument right now is a utter failure due to your inaccurate info...

Also after reading this entire thread....
I have come up with a simple conclusion....
you sir are clueless!
First if ubi wanted to kill any hype for thier game then yeah let them make a limited demo and charge people for it..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif
second I think you TC would be the ONLY person willing to pay for a demo... I know I wont ever do so no matter the game. Infact I would concider not buying the game when a company charges me so they can try and hype me up to pay more money for the full game... ludicris!!!!
Also I would be suspicous of the game itself if they are trying to milk me for money off a game demo... would make me thing the game is pure **** and they know it so they are trying to get as much money as they can before it fails....

As such your topic fails horriblly

why? why would you give money for a demo? its a dumb idea....
Hell they could release the E3 07 demo for us. its done they played it. on stage and in more net oriented game vids...
I mean how hard would it be for them to release the E3 demo for us to dl? we know what content is in it we saw it in action almost bug free, it wont spoil any more of the game as WE saw or can see it with the stage demo vids off gamespot... from E3 coverage... so why couldnt they release it?
honestly its build hype, it help people who dont know much about it or if they would like it figure out if its for them... did I mention it build hype?

After the fiasco that was the Lock On release, I absolutely have no trust in Ubisoft. I'm interested in Assassin's Creed, but with major reservations. It might have alot of potential (like Lock On), only the *ucktards at Ubisoft will once again **** it up.

This game could turn out to be the only Ubisoft game I buy since Lock On, but I don't want to buy this game WITHOUT a demo, my distrust of Ubisoft is that deep. A demo would really help people who think the way I do.

The demo is going to be a $6 dollar rental at Hollywood Video.

Also I would really like to point out this little flaw in that thread... (if the post with jades face is what I was supposta read....) they have a working almost bug free demo that is playable.....
there is no more work too it other then loading it up to XBL as I believe it was the 360 version they demoed on the gamespot stage demo...
so its already coded, the demos made, it works, all they gotta do is put it up for people to DL...

According to Jalel the E3 demo is roughly 3GB, thats to much.

I would love to see a demo but i dont think its a good idea, depending on what the demo may offer it may kill the hype for most gamers, like my self. If i love a game so much, i would keep playing the demo over and over again till i am sick of it, and then the hype will go away nd i will just say "Oh well maybe the full game wont be as boring"

So if they make a demo, they have to make a very small, small limited area, almost enough to make it linear

Like....make a demo, where you start off where you find the slave trader guy, so the demo would just be based on the combat system, so after you kill them, the demo would end... sound good enough? they did this with heavanly sword, it was short and full of action, now i cant wait to try it and see whats there to offer

well not really as it was a continued spot of what they showed at the microsoft press conferince, it picked up right after he took out the targets 3 gaurds that was laying in wait for him, plus as the the demo ran for a good bit of tim say at least 10-15 min and after he killed the target he ran about the city avoiding guards and whatnot for at least 5-10 min which would give us some time to get a feel for how it handles and I am sure if your on the ground you can get into fights...

Dont care who it is I just want a demo. if stranglehold can put a sweet demo out, if blue dragon can put a 1 hour timed demo out... then ubi could put the e3 demo out for use to see how it runs and if we are going to like it.
I wasnt a hugh fan of the stranglehold game, but after playing it I so will be getting it... its sooooo frelling kool
now I have my doubts about AC, so it will either confirm it or clear them up.
I know its a demo and I know its of an unfinished game so a bug here and there is understandable for a demo, not after I buy the whole game tho. now why cant they just put the e3 demo up for us???
and it dont relly matter the size does it? i mean the final fantasy online demo took like 7 gigs to install and play.. so why cant we play AC as a demo???

I want to choose my own path. so just because YOU think that everyone that wants the demo should wait until it releases and go rent it doesnt mean they have to listen to what YOU want.

And now there are people who think AC suck, since there where bugs in the demo. If Ubi would release a demo, without that bugs, they might think again about Ubi.

A demo is a preview, not a "lite" version of a game...

I wish they wouldnt do that to us,that wold be horrible

I believe that Ubisoft will not give us a demo ever for this game. Or at least that is a likely possibility. I will explain my reasoning by explaining the purpose of a demo. A demo is intended to introduce a product into the community with the overall goal of increasing sales. This game is hyped up to such an incredible degree that releasing a demo would actually decrease sales. The reason for that is people would think the game is better than what it actually is and they wouldn't be impressed by the demo.

So, how do we get a demo? The answer is simple, money!!! Money can get you any tangible thing in this world. So if Ubisoft charged 500 microsoft points for the demo I think they would do it because then the demo would become profitable. And I'm sure eager hard-core fans would pay a measly 5 dollars to play assassins creed....right???????

The fans get assassins creed the company gets their money, the world goes round.

You've got a very shaky argument there.
Assassin's Creed isn't NEARLY as hyped up as other games such as Halo 3 and GTA4. A demo would provide that extra much needed hype to boost sales.

You're assuming that the demo won't live up to people's expectations. That's exactly what is is, an assumption.

Charging money for a demo is ridiculous. I don't recall a single game that every forced you to pay for a demo (not counting demo disks and the like). </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

As a matter of fact Assassin's Creed is more anicipated by gamers thna Halo 3, and GTA3. In fact GTA3 wasn't even in the top 5.

more than halo3? yes, but only after the beta.
more than GTA4? im not so sure...

what i can say is that true, it is anticipated ALOT more since this years E3, but i dont think it can be compared to Bioshock or MGS4...

but it does have loads of fans waiting...
