Good, because if this turned out to be another "buy a subscription" to download the demo after waiting an extra week after the 360 demo I probably would have turned into a (lee63)

It better not be! I already pay GameSpot for access, I don't want to pay FilePlanet the same thing.

Trust me, I used to be with Gamespot, and for some dumb reason I joined IGN/Fileplanet, and that was a mistake. :p

You know the first person that gets it is just going to throw it on a torrent site anyway. Anyone who signs up just for the demo is a tard.

I did the same; having both has been very useful.

Thanks for the heads-up! I would have crapped my pants if I had to wait in another d*mn Fileplanet line and I REFUSE to give them money for exclusive sh*t that will be free a few days after...

My demo is reseverd.....its going to be a long 12h shift on Friday...


btw: Anyone having second thoughts about playing the Bioshock demo?
The tech side of me wants to try it badly DX10, Vista64, 4gb RAM, new big ass 1920x1200 LCD.....I especially want to see how it performs.
The gamer side of me strongly wants to wait on the full game since it so close for no spoilers.
Time to call the cyrsis help line ;)

Agreed, Fileplanet is like a virus lately trying to get their paws on all wanted Content and making it exclusive to generate revenue for their own greedy pockets!

F^%$ FP, DIE FP DIE!
Anyone who supports it is dumb IMO, Your doing nothing but supporting this FP Exclusive BS.

Very selfish Fats_ ...do you think server owners should pay out of thier own pockets so you can have free fast downloads, now that's "dumb" ??? At least FP is a legit competative business......not a cry-gimme-freeloader
sry, I was a bit insulting.....but hey, one deserves another

The demos are supposed to be a tools for the devs to sell more games aren't they? Or are they becoming a business all in themselves? I personally am not going to pay someone to play a small piece of a game that someone is hoping I'll buy. If it continues this way with the pay for demos/betas, I just may join the (lee63) s and and start downloading games from torrent sites to check them out that way. Screw it.

Edit: it's like paying to watch a tv commercial

Fileplanet makes up money from the servers on ads, plain and simple.

Selfish?
First off, I don't know what year you started to frequent the internet but it's ALWAYS been a platform for developers to showcase their content. As for paying for bandwidth costs that's what adds etc are for, and OH my they even force those on visitors with click here to continue crap.
Take nVidia for eg. they will offer it for free, but the reason is that it's in their best intrest to offer it in hopes of generating more graphics card sales.
Fileplanet is actually trying to steal our content before we can see it, to make their buck. ( What a joke )
We users do not need to pay to have content handed to us from Developer to consumer. GamersHell doesn't try and force money from your pockets, why can't FP be more like them? $$$$$ that's why, plain and simple.
Yeah FP can claim what they like and anyone can justify anything, but the truth here is they are thieves, PIEROD!

You call it freeloading? I call what File Planet is doing a crime.
IMO it's a shame that Developers/Publishers are letting places like fileplanet get away with using their content previews to try and generate a buck. Imagine if Microsoft tried to charge users for these same demo downloads, developers would freak and rant and stop that from happening. But it seems either the developers are getting paid off by FP to allow this crap or they just don't give a **** about PC users. I don't know but it needs to stop NOW.

If you can't figure out that's what they are doing, you’re blind to what's going on. Take FP's exclusive beta's, does that have to do with your freeloading users concept? pffft no offence dude, but seriously wake up, they excusify it to try and generate more cash. Same with this, the ONLY reason they are doing it is to make more subscriptions for their greedy lil pockets. FP can go F themselves. They are the worst thing that has ever happened to the multimedia content delivering community. Go figure Fox owns them hah!
