Nice idea for a thread. I'm surprised there are no announcements on the dashboard that lets you know there is new content when you log in.

Think I'll download the Quake trailer now so thanks for the heads up.

The demos are free.

.::: Is DOA finished then? I thought it was delayed until the end of January or so?

The Japanese are hardly going to be playing an unfinished version. And end of January would mean development ended a while back and all that.

Demos so far (and yeah, NFS has been up there for ages):

FIFA 06

Madden 06

NFS: Most Wanted

NBA LIVE 06

Kameo

Condemned

Quake 4

Not bad at all, but already got all of them bar Madden, because it's shit. And NBA, because it doesn't count.

Just downloaded and played the Quake4 demo. I was surprised to find that you can play deathmatch and team deathmatch on live in the demo! I just played one game, so I don't know how many arenas are available, and I don't know if you can only play against people who are also using the demo. Regardless, it's nice that they included live mutliplayer.

The singleplayer is just the first two levels. Wasn't impressed, it's only the doom3 engine after all, but it plays ok. Multiplayer is fun, but it hasn't convinced me to pay 60euros.

I think it's great that we get these demos without having to buy an overpriced crappy magazine, but it would be even better if we got to play demos of games that aren't out yet. That was kinda what I was expecting before the 360 launched, it would be brilliant if, for example, we could download playable demos that are usually only available for people that attend E3. Or a playable Gears of War demo sometime next month....

Oh nice one, I wanted to check Quake 4 out but I might as well download the demo.

Need for Speed's been up since launch, and it's a load of shit. The Kameo demo has been up since launch too.

NFS is fucking terrible isntit. I nearly bought that! God knows where the good reviews came from. Its jerky as hell and looks worse than burnout 4.

I imagine they will put new demos on there but we'll have to pay for the pleasure. It's good news that they're putting demos of older games up for free though.

.::: I don't think IGN would've been physically able to give it something else. Good to see it released (although I won't get it).

That's true in regard to IGN but despite the fact that I could be best described as 'useless' at beat 'em ups I think I will give DOA4 a go. At least the Japanese 360 owners have something else to play to go along with RR6 and Hexic now.

It's really not.

If the frame-rate doesn't get to you, the generally rubbish graphics and hilarious netcode will.

Rubbish graphics ? <_<

And obviously, first and foremost it's a single player game/demo. So the 'hilarious netcode' isn't really an issue, unless you're a DM nut.

Yes. The graphics are rubbish. Can you not see how fucking generic sci-fi they look? TEH WARTORRRRN!

How that affects the quality of the visuals I don't know :P

As has been said, they're bland as fuck. The lighting seems nice, but that's about ALL it's got going for it, looks-wise. Hell, Riddick on the XBox fucking rapes this in the FACE and back.
