BF2 Demo Within the Hour

A post to the GameSpot Forums by GameSpot's Sam Parker made just minutes ago (thanks Frans) states the Battlefield 2 demo has been finalized by EA and "It'll be up in the next hour or less."

Hmm only lets you play for 10 min, that kind of sucks.
2 hours left to DL so I can have my 10 min. I am weary of the time limit, rollercoaster tycoon was a time limited demo and as it turned out it wasnt enough time to realize it was full of bugs.

Forget about getting it tonight. Servers are going to be jammed

Shrug, I'm downloading it now at a steady 75k/s (could go higher, but I limited the rate to not eat my entire pipe).

And thank you to whoever posted the explicit URLs -- I'm now fetching it w/ wget to my Linux server at home while I'm still at work.

A newsgroup post would solve this

No it wouldn't. A bittorrent would though. Posting large binaries to Usenet is just irresponsible and is why it ceased being carried by most ISPs.

hahah They must be close to being farked.
They added a download.com link.

/edit: 80%, will be done very soon.....BUT I HAVE REMOTE CONNECTION TO HOME PC! Looks like it is time to punch out for the day! hhehehehahah
/edit2: I just realized, mine sped up to 400+ KB/sec! Impressive. Currently hovering around 405.

Sheeees. Forget about getting it tonight. Servers are going to be jammed. Maybe I'll try first thing in the morning.

A newsgroup post would solve this, but it never seems to happen with a demo.

None of the links work in GetRight! They are all sitting there. Downloading with IE and without GR seems to work. Meh! 30 minutes...

I'm probably the only person right now who doesn't care about this game, eh?
