Sure there is a demo, its called Utorrent. Why do so many people torrent....say I really wonder why. Good job game devs and pubs....good job.

And even if they do release a demo it's short as hell. Demos have been worthless for like the past 5 years now... They're moar like interactive tech demos.

Xbox & Wii gamers have been getting their "Demos" for a long time now.

Only way they know they can "Guarantee" some sales.

*Points at the dumbasses who bought MOA for the BF3 Beta*

^This as well. Sell out companies are sell outs.


EDIT: I don't know why so many of you feel that you're entitled to everything (Like a demo in this case), so you go out of your way to get one.

Why not do the sensible thing and just WAIT for video footage, reviews, and user reviews.

Games with demos are pirated just as much anyway, we all know that 99% of people who pirate games don't buy it afterwards even if they found it to be awesome, I have a few friends who still play on PC and they basically never buy PC games and ask me why I do when I can get htem for free.

While I did enjoy Painkiller a while back I am not too sure I am all that interested in Bulletstorm anymore. I've just got this feeling where it's going to go down the same road as Medal of Honor (2010) where it will be fun for a few days/weeks and the servers will be full but will die out in a few months.

Now I only believe that I bought Medal of Honor for the Battlefield 3 Beta. Which I don't mind to be perfectly honest as I am looking forward to it, if they do it right that is

But the lack of Demo for Bulletstorm on the PC shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Should it?

So how are PC gamers going to know if it runs well on their system? How are they going to know if they will enjoy it with their control scheme?

I played bulletstorm at Eurogamer expo, it was amazingly good fun, even more so if they had been using a pc control scheme.

No demo = more piracy. Simple as that.

Epic have lost their marbles. Sure PC won't make as much money, but its not very hard to create a PC demo even moreso if they are using UDK, its piss simple to create a PC demo as i use UDK all the time.

This is a 'goodbye pc gaming' from Epic.

Very dissapointed.

I also think companies don't release demos anymore for another reason, most people own computers with integrated GPU which can barely run games if at all, if they downloaded the demo they would realise the game runs poorly and won't buy it.
