No UT3 demo for PS3 before release

PS3 News | PC demo in the works however.
Speaking in a interview with Eurogamer, Epic Games’ Mark Rein has stated that it’s unlikely a demo for the PlayStation 3 version of Unreal Tournament III will be made available before the game’s initial release. He has however, confirmed a PC demo is in the works.

"We'll have a PC demo for UT, [but] I don't think we'll have a PS3 demo before the game ships," Rein said to Eurogamer.

Rein went on to compare the issue with what the team had expressed to Microsoft when asked a similar question concerning Gears of War.

"What we told Microsoft last year - they wanted a demo for Gears of War and we said 'you've got a choice - you can have the demo this year or the game this year,' " Rein stated. "We're not a big huge company with the resources to do that, and all the time we're testing that demo we're not testing our full game, which we need to be doing constantly."

According to Rein however, making a PC demo in the form of a beta is much easier and in turn, would greatly benefit the game's development.

Unreal Tournament III is currently scheduled for a release later this year on the PlayStation 3 and PC while an Xbox 360 version will be released sometime in 2008. Meanwhile, you can check out PALGN's recent interview with Unreal Tournament III producer, Jeff Morris, by clicking here.

^ I know what you mean, I go to the american store to get a few more demos and trailers but it's not enough.
Instead, we can just download some of the fantastic music videos they have on offer icon_lol.gif

Hopfully when ps3 releases more games there will be more demos... maybe.

Demos where still a little rare on 360 at this point it's life time but I do admit that it's looking a little grim in terms of future content, I mean we know that they have had a Ratchet and Clank demo for over a month now but they aren't releasing it until near the games release... *sigh*
