    OH MY GOD!! Its epic, amazing, literally the best thing in the world ever!! This must be how GOD feels... when he plays an exclusive demo on PSN a week before its released... Nah just kiddin', hav'nt even gotten round to downloading it yet. Don't really 'get' these exclusivity deals

    started downloading it just then and your right, one week of exclusivity for a demo is nothing, unless of coarse it is one of your most anticipated games... and you have some disease that will kill you before the week is out

    AWWWWW CRAP! Nevermind. Saw the game play.(Internet doesn't like to buffer.) It is gothic GoW. Sorry for the double. Hope they change it.

    NO! We dont hate you for playing it. Just the Sony d-bag that a weeks worth of "exclusivity" means jack shit to the gaming crowd. How was it?

    It's pretty much the same demo Chris described a while ago. He would describe it better than me, and I'm also getting the vibe that I'd put secretly resented for talking about it anymore.

    I have it downloaded, will let everybody know what I think soon enough.

    @ChrisCultista Thank you!

    This just in. No one cares about "exclusive" demos. Sorry.
