The Tomb Raider Legend demo was supposed to go live last night, but has yet to make an appearance. Whilst the rest of the extra's to appear made it, such as the exclusive trailer, gamer themes and a selection of picture packs of Lara from the game and real-life Lara, Karima Adebibe made an appearance the demo is still nowhere to be seen. Eidos made this statement on their official forums regarding the 'non-appearance' of the playable demo: -- "We were told this was all going live last night, however apparently they only released the Trailer..We dont control this, its all in the hands of the Marketplace team.." --

Piece of crap Live Demo team. Whoever they are. They never get anything right. And why can't they at least tell us. Or the publisher! They need to keep people updated. And work harder! They're touting how awesome the marketplace can be, but they're sure not supporting the claim! If they want us to be awed by the service, they need to provide service that's worthy of it!
2 - I agree

They better get their stuff worked out by PS3 launch, if we are not happy with the live we are paying for, we might just go to sony and get it free.
3 - TR: Legend Demo now available

4 - I've got a feeling...

maybe Microsoft purposefully delay the demos to make sure it doesn't hurt retail sales for the first weekend. Fight Night got a big boost back into the charts from the demo but how many people were completely turned off buying Blazing Angels because of that demo?
I will add, as unfair as it is to delay a free demo. Thank god it's free! I still pay £5.99 for th official PS2 magazine when they have a demo that catches my curiosity but 8 times out of 10 I regret the waste of money for various reasons: The demo is too short, the game was not what i was expecting, it plays nothing like the hyperbole used in the magszine to describe it.
If you're worried about a game before purchase, leave it. Scratch that monkey on your back with a cheaper treat for the weekend & wait for either your mate's opinion or, one day, that hallowed demo. Cause £50 ($60) is a lot to spend on a game you're unsure you'll like
5 - hmmm...

9 - Downloading tip
Unregistered - Me 04.05.2006 16:27
Some of you may know this already, but some may not. Anyway, when downloading a trailer or demo and it hits 5% cancel the download and start again, it will jump straight to 50% complete. Don't burn me now...
Unregistered - TruMayheM 04.05.2006 16:36
Getting it to jump that way to 50% does not in anyway change how long it takes to download something it is only a glitch that jumps it up that way but not one that increases how fast it downloads....
11 - glitch or not
Unregistered - RealDoubleJ 04.05.2006 16:49
it's nice to fool yourself. 66% complete (or 16% if that's the case)
12 - glitch
assjacket 04.05.2006 16:51
yeah, its just a graphic glitch. Doesn't actually affect the time of the download. Hopefully they will update soon so we can have downloads in the background and still play games! I don't understand why it hasn't been like that from the start...oh well.
13 - Anyone have it downloaded
FamoAmo 04.05.2006 16:55
