I don't see why it won't play on very high, full settings like Crysis on GTS250(plays nicely BTW).

..cause the console launch was FUBAR'd. Now they want to give it to the PC guys... /DEMO FAIL /MARKETING FAIL!!!!

So we now know the console demo was a bust...NOW they are going to focus on the PC market. They can stick it.

Demo was broken hard. But console gamers are much more forgiving over garbage than PC gamers are. I guess they are just used to it.

http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/67280

Yesterday's anticipated release of the Xbox 360-exclusive multiplayer demo for Crysis 2 has been somewhat marred by technical bugs. Complaints from a thread on the Crysis Tech Issues page range from poor hit detection and stuttering to long lobby wait times, losing a connection, or even outright freezing.

Crytek has issued a statement on the forum. "We do understand that a few players are having technical issues with the demo," it read. "We are working to resolve this as quickly as possible, we apologize if it is affecting your experience. We appreciate your patience and support."

The developer ran a beta test for the game, but it apparently didn't catch these bugs or hasn't been able to fully stamp them out yet. Now that it's officially called a demo, fans are holding it up to a higher standard.

Ugh, let's just hope it doesn't come onto the PC with issues like CoD BO did then. Sounds like they rushed it onto the console.

People are going to buy it though, even PC gamers are mugs for buying the marketing crap .Just look what happened with MW2, people said they would boycott it and then brought it anyway.

wow, some ppl just can't be pleased....

The X360 demo is good, its basically considered a closed beta. Keep your expectations in check. The pc demo should be better.

haha i know the whole point of releasing early demo on xbox 360 is to iron out the bugs before launch. PC is prolly in a better state so they don't need so much of a preview. haters gotta hate
