Re: Complete list of PS3 and PSP demos on the UK store

Wow, that's ridiculous! Why would you want to forbid demos of year-old games from your customers?

 

No PS4 for me, and not buying those games without demos.

Re: Complete list of PS3 and PSP demos on the UK store

Best guess is that Sony charges publishers per demo download. So publishers remove them after a while to reduce expenditure. Your other bet is to rent them, which is cheaper, obviously, if you already have a contract with someone with Lovefilm for monthly rentals.

One week until the Vita, and the need to keep a list of Vita demos. :smileyhappy:



Yup, I think we're going to need a bigger boat... Or at least a new subject line...

 

 

Hey everybody! It's the Vita Launch Demopalooza

 

The store team seem determined to distinguish between demos and trials in an arbitrary manner, so if you look in the Vita 'demos' section of the store, you'll currently only see six of the demos/trials on offer.

 

Here's my list... I hope you've got a nice big memory card with your Vita.

 

Inaugurated: 21st February 2012 (Total Vita: 17)

 

PS Vita demos and trial versions:

A-men [202]

Asphalt Injection [761]

Dungeon Hunter: Alliance [1044]

Dynasty Warriors Next [216]

FIFA Football [1658]

Hustle Kings [394]

Little Deviants [1018]

Lumines: Electronic Symphony [717]

ModNation Racers: Road Trip [480]

MotorStorm RC [684]

Rayman Origins [922]

Reality Fighters [674]

Super Stardust Delta [223]

Top Darts [406]

Uncharted: Golden Abyss [494]

Unit 13 [634]

WipEout 2048 [552]

 

 

 

 

And amidst all the chaos, there's one additional PS3 (cross-play) trial to sink your teeth into...

 

Updated: 21st February 2012 (Total PS3:234; Vita: 17; PSP: 36)

 

PS3 demos and trial versions:

MotorStorm RC [600]

Re: Complete list of PS3 and PSP demos on the UK store

And after the chaos of last night's Vita launch update, a relatively slow 'normal' Store Update with just the one new demo - albeit the new SSX - and the StarHawk beta is now available for everyone to try out (weighing in at 1301MB if you're interested).

 

 

Updated: 22nd February 2012 (Total PS3:235; PSVita: 17; PSP: 36)

 

PS3 demos and trial versions:

SSX [1329]

No worries LR. Thanks for your assistance as usual.

 

The 'spoilers' look nice. Wish I'd done it sooner. :smileyhappy:

Re: Complete list of PS3 and PSP demos on the UK store

Thanks!

 

...And on to the Store Update of 29th February.

 

Nothing new on the Vita front this week.

 

Some new PS3 demos and trial versions to try...

 

Updated: 29th February 2012 (Total PS3:236; PS Vita: 17; PSP: 35)

 

PS3 demos and trial versions:

Choplifter HD [1465]
FIFA Street [1965]
Killzone 3 Multiplayer Trial [4068]
Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Generations [941]

 

 

 

I've also done my occasional sweep through the store to find those demos that have now been removed. I found 5 PS3 demos had gone, and 1 PSP demo. I also found that one demo had returned to the store and I found a new trial that escaped me last week.

 

New & rediscovered PS3 demos:

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean [1074]
Quizball Goal! [401]

 

 

Gone but not forgotten :smileysad:

PS3: Ace Combat Assault Horizon, Section 8: Prejudice, The Simpsons Arcade Game, Syndicate, UFC Undisputed 3

PSP: Crystal Mines
