First of all I would like to say hi this is my first post on this forum, and have been coming here for awhile now. Now down to business I would like to say I am bummed you guys are delaying this masterpiece, but if you are delaying it why not release the combat demo to hold us over for awhile. I mean I literally stood in my local gamestop for over 2 hours just playing the demo please give us the xbox 360, ps3 demos please.

Thanks guys for the hiya's Keir thanks for the forgoing pestering the powers that be I mean that would make alot of us guys who have the game preordered and payed off like me very happy. I have your CE paid off in full just hope you are able to make something like the combat demo or the predator demo come live on the PSN, and XBL in the near future.

1st May 2009, 21:48
I was going to pre order the CE in the next two weeks. Now because of this uncertainty i am going to dealy my pre order.

EDIT: ......and yes i would like to see a demo as i would like to see how the game is like at the moment so then the fans understand what would need fixing.

We're not getting a demo anytime soon. Us members here aren't enough to make Eidos/Rocksteady release one. We need more people. Probably won't get a demo until after the game comes out in a year.

I personally would like a Invisiable pred. demo cuz i played the normal fight challenges and i think they are really fun but dont do the game justice.....and yes i know i cant spell :P but i am glad it will be a lil set back cuz i knoticed some issues

Kraken890
2nd May 2009, 03:43
I know they can give us both demos because as seen at the kiosk, the challenge rooms are the first two in the game (not counting easy and expert difficulties). If they can make challenge rooms exclusively for consoles, game retail corperations and online stoors then they should have no problem on that extension to make another demo for the weeks before release.

yeah issues like dangerous levels of euphoria, escapism, oral muscular attrophy due to extended periods of smiling and loss in dignity due to the police escorting me over the shoulder like a 2year old after refusing to stop playing the demo after the store closed.

Same here. I was deciding to preorder it, but now I am looking towards Operation Flashpoint 2.

I think they should release a demo within these weeks. You guys bummed many people, like me!!!! :mad2:

If they gave us a demo, I wouldnt be pissed off at them. We would kiss and make up.

I think it's safe to say that a demo is on it's way, guys. At least by the original release date. I don't think they are intending to piss anyone off. And I'm sure Rocksteady is hard at work to get a great title out to us. Just chill. I promise, everything will be A-OK!

I still think it is interesting that none of the major game stores have changed the release date. Usually they are on top of it, or maybe they are waiting for confirmation that it has been pushed back from the developer. Man you have to think of this though how much you guys have paid for advertisement for the june 23 release really sad.

A couple Gamestop employees once told me that sometimes they put up a release date so they can start getting preorders, thats why I dont trust them. Im honestly not surprised, I think they saw something in testing that hurt the gameplay. Like I hope Batman will be able to counter 2 guys at one time. Then slap one with your cape as your slugging the guy in the jaw.

and at THIS point, ill be not so pleased if its just the 'gamestop / wal-mart' demo ...

oh and can you MODERATORS take your own advice and quit spamming 'Battlestation Pacific' whenever you run out of batstuff......... it looks silly when you ask others to do so, then toss in a commercial for another game.... as YOU say.... their is a forum for that.

im with everyone else at this point. the original date was may or june 1st then 23 now its august...and i believe its all about the money as to why its getting pushed back. maybe come up with some more clever marketing ideas to squeen as much money as they can not realising that its a freaking batman game and its going to go strait to #1 cause fans and non fans alike are dying for something like this.

give us a demo...cheers cherio and all that.

Not only that but after delaying like they are we deserve a demo. As it I canceled my pre-order. I'm not going to pre-order something that doesn't have a concrete date and keeps getting moved back. I already went thru that nonsense with Brawl, won't do it again.

I agree , but trust me they better push back the release if they found some serrious bug , I dont know if you played Force Unleashed , if yes you know what I'm talking about , I wish they pushed the release for another year.

but I agree we derseve a demo serriously.

PS3/PSPGamer7
3rd May 2009, 23:23
Yeah we need a demo. This is just my opinion but maybe the Silent Knight and the Combat demos to really show what you can do and not just one side of it. Oh and I remember TFU, it was a great game but they should have pushed it back, fixed the bugs, then made MP, that could've made the game. BTW I agree with that girl standing up about how we've heard this stuff before. Fight the Power!:lmao:

well lets just hope Keir can get some info on when they will give us a demo sooner then later would be great. Hey and Keir if you are reading this can you try and get us a specific date. Please man so this speculation, and the complaining can stop. I will am sad that the game isnt coming out on time, but at least Ghostbuster, and prototype are set pretty much.

Keir is there any chance you can give us a reason as to why the game was pushed back. We know they wanted to make sure the game was the best possible, but is there something majorly wrong with the game it just seems weird that they pushed it back that much for some polishing when the game that I played at Gamestop seemed great except for some minor issues like clipping.

That's what i want to know why have they pushed the release date further. That's why i think they should release a demo so they can get our feedback & see what needs fixing and also anything else they think that needs fixing too.

I want the 2 demos, combat demo and invisible predator demo!

At last demos never arenĀ“t like the final version of game.

If they have a little bugs or something it doesnt matter, cause the game will has not this bugs.

and NOW it is about 2 pm ............ monday in good ol jolly england........

notice NO NEW information ....

it must be REAL hard to ask a DIRECT question over morning coffee. see guys it was just ANOTHER BS stall tactic............... dont forget BATTLESTATION CANADA has a GREAT DEMO out.

oh, and can we get 5 more NEW posts today about some kid in jersey playing the DEMO for 75 hours at a pop please, i never get sick of reading those.

they wont answer for another 3-4 hours, then the excuse will be...............

" well now its monday night here, ill get an answer sometime this week, batman himself is coming in to EIDOS studios to play the DEMO himself for his approval, and its been hectic here, so when we CAN , ill give you guys answers...........even though every OTHER website gets the REAL information before we do, and then we LIE about it, then we cover it up, then we tell you, we had the REAL information first, stay tuned to HERE for NEW information"

ill bet 10 bucks, someone comes on here, and tells US, the DEMO is on ps3 or xbox BEFORE a mod does.............


oh, and so EVERYONE knows...................... uncharted 2 has a demo out( in one week ), and THAT game isnt coming uintil december

Whilst I agree with you in theory, VXR, they're still making this game. We have heard this before, but yet you're being very irrational. The moderators don't have time to be here every second of every minute, every minute of every hour, every hour of every day etc. They're trying their best to make this game the best that they can, and even if that takes a few more irritating weeks then it'll be worth it.

I would like a demo, however.

This is basic business, not SPY work........ they are making a GAME not creating world secrets to solving world hunger.

and actually YES the moderators do have that time, this is their paid job..... type out the f word in a post, or flame against someone...... see how fast these mod's respond.

ask a question and we get jack didly.... ( maybe we should only ask questions about BATTLESTATION : ZIMBABWE ) seems they love talking about that game

got any answers about WHAT the bat arang is made from ?
demo answers ?
comic book answers ?
DLC answers ?
a FAN told us about the podcast..............

the list goes ON & ON.

look down the posts........... nothing has been answered... unless its been answered by the fans.

but type out a wolverine post and let me know how that goes for ya, or how long it stays up.....

BATMAN DEMO !!!.............. coming to MALLS EVERYWHERE LAST MONTH......

coming to PAYING CUSTOMERS................................................................................................................................................................................................ :confused:

I never said it was spy work. Don't really understand what you're getting at.

They don't have the answers for everything, and they still have to do try and keep the forum clean.

As I said, they don't know the game in it's entirety. They have to ask the people who are making the game, who I assume are busy most of the time. And of course they're going to recommend that game, it's something their company is making and that comes out in the time between now and Arkham Asylum.

And at the end of the post I sort of lost track.

And to everyone saying that they'll forget about it - give me a break. You'll come back as soon as you see a trailer. Yes, Autumn (or Fall as it is called in North America) has Halo: ODST, Bioshock 2, Assassin's Creed 2, Wolfenstein etc. But you'll still buy it.

Why do you keep asking about polishing. I saw you ask in three threads.

Guys, polishing is a good thing. They are done with the game, they are just fixing the bugs, it isn't going to take till 2010, it probably won't even reach September

Think about it if they released back in Spring, and we saw all of these glitches.
Most of our speculation of the release date was May 09 ish.

You guys are fooling yourselves if you think it's coming out at the end of summer. For one you got Madden in August, Marvel Ultimate Alliance in September, and then Call of Duty Uncharted and a other great games coming out. No way Batman can compete with them. DC Universe will probably be out before this game. I'm starting to think this game is one big hoax and the next Duke Nuke em forever.

Abeja
4th May 2009, 15:05
Kinda stupid how hush-hush they are over this. We cant even confirm that its delayed. Eidos/Rocksteady seem like they need feedback or something. Give us a demo and everything will be alright, and you can have your delay.

Seriously tho, give us SOMETHING to ease our minds. Whoever said this is to get more marketing for E3 is probably right. When the game was original gonna release, I thought the same thing "O it wont need to be at E3" They are probably gonna have some announcement for DLC too. They shot their load on the Joker maps too soon, now they are ******* around too much.

Chimaera
4th May 2009, 15:18
Hahaha seriously guys, this sin't a big deal AT ALL, try being a Splinter Cell fan, we've had no info for 2 years, the last time we saw the game it wasn't even remotely Splinter Cell-ish, still, it could be worse, imagine being an Alan Wake fan.

It's been said as late summer. Where I live, Summer is June, July and August. So late Summer is August 15th, somewhere along there. And yes, I realise it's not one month but I'm ******* tired and I occasionally make mistakes. And yes, I can insult your nation if you so wish me too but I'd think you'd want to spend your time better than attempting to make me insult your nation over an internet forum.

And don't tell me to quit posting on forums. I'm not going to quit because someone who I've never met and likely to never meet tells me to.

Woah such hate, I'm sure they will come on here and tell us info on the game when they can. its only a few more months wait I'd rather wait for a few more months and have a good game then one full of bugs. They might bring out a demo they might not, there might be one in the pipe line but the mods aren't allowed to say anything.

Such hate on these forums. I'm with ya guys 110% about being upset over the game being pushed back. Just think of the positives, it'll be an even better game when it releases. I just hope the wait is worth it. If I still see cape clipping, etc. I will be incredibly pissed off. But for now, I'm going to retire *again* from this board. With an extra 2-3 month wait, there's not much I'll be missing here.

See ya guys around.

Hahaha seriously guys, this sin't a big deal AT ALL, try being a Splinter Cell fan, we've had no info for 2 years, the last time we saw the game it wasn't even remotely Splinter Cell-ish, still, it could be worse, imagine being an Alan Wake fan.

or even better, try waiting for duke nukem forever. :lmao:

makes these next few months look like a cake walk. :rasp:

Some things are planned out ahead of time (marketing) and some things come up that are not (game delay). When things like this happen then marketing has to rework time lines and such and in many cases not all the information is readily available or penciled in. This is why ATM we cannot give you an exact date on a demo or the release date. When this information comes available we will let everyone know.

maybe they didnt ask....

ok ill make it REAL simple......... for ANY mod.

when is the DEMO being released, and WHY dont WE have it, when you felt it was 100% ok to put in various kiosk's all over the place....

ok thats 2 VERY simple questions, answers that are considered UNacceptable are ' ill ask someone at eidos ( because after reading this, you should have done so BEFORE posting ) and B. there will be a PODCAST about this in 2012.

or C........ yet another commercial for BATTLESTATION : INDIANA

Oh please, I pestered the developers and Eidos about Battlestations: Midway before it was released for almost 3 years :rasp:

oh, and see my previous post about the release date. I know it is not the answer you want but sometimes things work out that way.

Oh and I would like to say that this thread does have Eidos attention and they are aware that everyone would like the demo ASAP.

if edios is actually listening to us then i say we quit our *****in for a little bit and let them do something about it. we have made it perfectly clear that we want the demo ASAP, so lets wait for the guys at edios to do something before anything else.

It seems simple enough; the demo was released at retailers so that you'd turn around and tell the clerk you wish to pre order.

Just reading all these posts "I broke into Wal Mart and played all night!", or "I pushed four kids out of the way and played for six hours at Game Stop!" are reason enough for Eidos and retailers to NOT want the demo released. That demo is bringing potential customers to the stores; it can’t do that if you’re accessing it form your living room.

I would still love to see a downloadable demo released yesterday, that’s wishful thinking though.

and without risking your job / opportunity with EIDOS.... could you at least fill us i on 'their' answers, views, attitudes, or lack of care, etc.

i think the hardest part is knowing there IS demo's available, and out there.

and not to get an answer about something like that is rather ' not polite' would be the best thing i know in english, sorry im not from america or england.

Chip isn't employed by Eidos, he merely maintains the Forums social quality, your question is like asking the janitor at NASA about the components of the latest rocket ship.

I honestly think there is no point asking for a demo...they dont answer to us were going to buy the game regardless so if they are going to come out with one then they will do it on there own terms....they really dont care if "WE" want a demo right now....if its not the right time for them then its not the right time for all of us...and to people who say they are canceling there pre orders....i bet 9 out of 10 dont... and the extra 10% will re pre-order so yea

Well I did not start this thread for people to complain about the game being pushed back, so It happened there is nothing we can do about it. Now onto business this thread was created so people could gather together to show that we are saddened about the games delay and politely ask for a DEMO since one is already done. The demo is all over the place, but good luck getting to play it there is always a line of people waiting to play it. This comment is to the moderators is a demo even likely to come out soon, as in within the next month?

i don't blame you for canceling your preorder. I am keeping mine preordered because I already have the collectors edition payed off, and I dont see the point in paying off $100 for it again.

The way i figure it, I'm going to get the game anyways, and when it gets closer to release day more people will be trying to pre-order it, which just means that my older pre-order will be one of the first ones and all ready to pick up on the first shipment. :cool:

plan ahead people, even if it is delayed it will sell well, i can guarantee it.

But you could use that $100 for a game this actually confirmed to be coming out. We still don't have a date for this game.

There should be something special for folks who stick it out until August and who have kept their pre-orders since early on.

stoobytoons
5th May 2009, 19:19
I think playable in-home demos are meant as a last-ditch effort to get people interested and hopefully buy a game. In store demos are meant to get people to buy consoles. Obviously with this exclusive Joker thing for the PS3, and only PS3 demos found in stores, Eidos must be have some deal going on with Sony. At any rate, I'm beginning to realize that holding my breath for a demo isn't the greatest plan. The game will be here eventually.

I think Eidos are using programs a wee bit better than say, Endorphin.
