PC Demo very soon

Postby Skyline_man » 09 Nov 2005, 21:01

I found an interesting post by EAcomSmoothie in EA Forums regarding the PC demo:
EAcomSmoothie wrote:Hey Peeps,

Being lazy, I'll repost from another thread:

----------------- ---
Okay, peeps. I can understand the frustration but here's the deal and why we've not given any date.

Truth is, it's changed a number of times. It was supposed to be Date A, then got moved to Date B, then Date C. After awhile, we simply go with a "week of".

That's the nature of the business. Things get developed, things get tested, and re-tested submissions made to CQC. Once they approve, it gets released to the public.

Problem is, sometimes one of those above processes takes longer than expected.

Is the demo later than what we originally planned? Sure. But this is just part of the job. I hate it, actually. It pains me to see all the threads begging and pleading for info and I hate not being able to give it to you. But if I did and it was wrong, the nightmare of crowd control is much, much worse. (Believe me, it happened to me last year on another game in which I actually thought I was going to get fired.)

So please don't take this personal, but I really love my job. So if it means dealing w/ threads like this or keeping my job, job wins. =)

But know this. We're in final preparations and are looking to have this file out soon, very soon. So again, thanks for your patience, and please sit back and relax.

Thx,

~ Smoothie

That's it, Fasten your seat belts 8)

I would say between tommorow, and then Friday. But Friday sounds more fitting to a release of a demo.
Seems like this website is a ghost town. No longer worth a visit or anyone's time.

yeah, i was thinking seriously that, but a EA post says that fridays are they "start of weekend", so maybe tomorrow morning we will have the demo. in the meantime, i'm going to wait listening System Of a Down, my favourite music band of all my life. If the demo isn't released tomorrow morning, friday will be the "D-Day", or for some unexpected "things and delays", monday.

I wonder what he means by "soon, very soon". Well, it doesn't matter; I'm prepared to have my hopes dashed again :) Mmm, always have low expectations - that way you'll never experience disappointment!

Ok, so he said Fridays and weekends are out of the question. He also said it will come out BEFORE Nov. 14th, so that leaves today (Nov. 9) or tomorrow (Nov. 10), right?

They're probably testing the demo to discover the last small bugs that are still in it. EA could probably have released it a few days ago, but if the demo is full of bugs, people get a bad impression of the game. Despite all those desperate people who are spamming the EA boards (some people are VERY desperate, real funny to read their posts :P), I think EA made the right choice. I hope they're done very soon.

A posting from a thread I started about threads at EA's forums:

Let me start this off with some background information, I first posted this:
Code: Select all
 Parity on "Trix" commercial:
 "Stupid Kids, Threads are made for reading!"
 
Come on people I am getting tired of reading yet
another thread started about when the game demo is
going to be released, or about the Black Box version
for PC.

This information has already been posted in this
forum by Smoothie.

Demo:

1. Will be released between 1st and the 14th
2. Will not be released on the 8th.
3. Won't be released on a Friday or Weekend.
4. Will be released prior to the 14th.
5. Smoothie will be out of Town later today, (today being the 9th,) for a
couple of days.
6. Which leaves only one possibility, it will be
released on the 9th before Smoothie leaves for his trip.
,,,
7. If #6 is wrong don't cuss me, because I was only extrapulating from what Smoothie has thus far said. Smoothie said that he was the one who updated the websites, so I am going on that information as well.
8. If Smoothie changes any of this he will post it himself, and is more than welcome to post it here, and correct me if I am wrong on any of this information.
 
Now kids come on quit flooding the forum with useless
threads about these questions.

**Edited by me to reflect better what is at hand here and to clean it up some and for clarity on one point made above too for this forum.**

In response to that, Smoothie posted this:
Code: Select all
Good detective work on #6, but there is more than one Community Mgr who can release files for EA. =)

~ Smoothie

Take it how you like. :) :wink: Personally, I take it that means it will be released prior to his going on vacation, but that's me....

I take that as a hint that the demo will probably not be uploaded before Smoothie leaves. Actually, I'm not surprised he's not the only Community Mgr. I would even find it ridiculous if a huge enterprise like EA would have only one person to upload demos.
