Seriously. First off I'm a PS3 and 360 owner. I downloaded the demo on both consoles however I have absolutely no intention of buying it for 360.

360 version works fine. no bugs, no glitches, just gaming.

PS3 version then? Well constant freezing as soon as you try to get into matchmaking, making sure I have no way to turn the PS3 off except by ripping out the power cord or switching the off button (Both of which are not recommended by Sony)

I would have bought it for PC but seemingly that's totally messed up too.

As amped as I was for this title this has made me think if I should bother buying or not.

Clarification as if they know the issue and will resolve it will do. I'm not about to waste my money on something that wont work without that clarification.

I know the care cup is half empty when it comes to one person complaining. But look around the internet. I am not alone with the problem.

I'm aware there is another thread below this one, I don't really care though. I'm asking for a dev to tell us it'll be fixed right here.

Yeah, the PS3 demo pissed me off. How did they miss that?

I mean, they spent so much time testing, you think someone would have noticed that THE MULTIPLAYER DOESN'T ******* WORK.

the ps3 mp demo freeze-up-thing will definitely hurt the sales a bit

my thought is they sent a faulty copy of demo to sony? because yeah, you cant miss the fact that the demo doesnt work at mp

True dat, now if the game is buggy, then you can start freaking out.

I played the PS3 demo and it lets me play 3 rounds of multiplayer, then it goes back to the multiplayer select screen and freezes... every... single... time. Forces me to completely turn off the PS3 console. They really need to get the bugs worked out before release because the multiplayer actually seems fun.

You can actually hold the on/off button, probably better for the console..
I'm gonna get it on pc. The demo worked fine for me, the graphics are alot sharper and if they add a mute button it'd be perfect

No devs actually come to a board where a game is near release? Lol.

Oh gawd.

Right I'll be renting this first. I wont buy something I suspect can be broken. I hope everyone else does the same if they intend on buying it for PS3. I'd hate to see anyone screwed over.
