Hi to all,

Many, many thanks to the development team for their ongoing hard work to make sh3 the best subsim for next year. At last some one has decided to make a game that will sustain your interest for more than a week or so!

One small complaint, I'm starting to get a little annoyed with having to download movies or screenshots of other people having fun, I understand the game is due for release in February or March. Surely it's time for a demo for the rest of us, and soon, any thoughts on this from the development team would be appreciated.

It's not even in Beta testing yet, so we have to be patient. Rushing never helps, unless you're talking about the NFL.

Now that's a good thought ! But the longer we wait (hopefully) the better it will be.

I read on another SHIII forum someone stated:

"acually the dev team stated that the demo is plannend for release just before christmas ... as they said " it will be our chirstmass gift to the community "

The poster never said where they heard that statement. So I guess we'll find out next month whether it's true or not. Typically a demo comes out about a month before going gold.

ya i agree i think that we need a demo... im not asking for a big huge think maby just the training scenario and 1 mission so we could see how the game runs on our computer and so forth. about the beta testing i dought they will still have it... getting a little late for that (asumming that the game is going to come out in febuary).

Come on folks - keep a stiff upper lip. It's only 12 weeks away. What is a demo going to accomplish? Sure, it'll give us a taste of what's in store, but think of the cost in terms of development time that would be wasted.

I'd much rather they just concentrated on the game and got it finished. Anything else is just wasteful.

Beeryus,

I believe the majority of people use demo's as a rough gauge to tell how the final version will run on a system. For me if a demo runs poorly as was the case with the latest metal of honor game, then I usually won't buy the full version unless I'm very sure the game will run smoothly on my system.

So there are several benefits to putting out a demo. Demo's are a good marketing tool to help bring in sales for the final release. Granted they will have to package a demo together but long term playable demo's do make sense as they usually translate into better profits if people can try before they buy.

Of course there's no promises a demo will be released unless the dev team oficially states one way or the other.

It was stated a demo would be released 2 months prior to final release. Perhaps they'll have it as the Beta test. But to release the game without a Beta test could/would be disasterous.

21 times, possibly more a SHIII demo was asked. We must be more patient. I'm sure the dev team isn't going to give us a demo thats buggy. Think of a proto-type car. You wouldnt be impressed if the proto-type car smoked,stalled, or fell apart would you? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
