LO MAC Demo Delayed

The Lock On Modern Air Combat Website has word that the promised (story) playable demo for the upcoming jet fighter is stuck in a holding pattern. Here's the deal:
The interactive demo for Lock On has been completed and will be made available online in October of 2003. The demo will allow players to try their hand at flying the A-10A "Warthog" and the MiG-29A "Fulcrum." In addition to being available on the official Lock On website and several mirrors, it will also be available in December issues of several popular magazines like Computer Gaming Magazine, Computer Gaming World, and PC Gamer.

While we very first considered releasing the Lock On demo earlier, given the postponement of the game's release, it has been decided it would be best to release the demo in October to ensure a better support to the project.
In a related note, a petition has already sprung up asking Ubi Soft to reconsider this decision, and there's also a new LO MAC movie on the official website (thanks Frans).

man, I completely forgot about all those poor souls that need the demo RIGHT NOW. in the future, before I spout my opinion, I will try to think of the impatient masses with nothing better to do with their time then get pissed when a free piece of software isn't released on time. yeah, I guess Ubi should have kept their mouthes shut about the demo's release date and all... yeah, they must be assholes...

where's fred with his usual news link to some horrible tragedy happening somewhere on the planet...

Good Lord, dude it was a freiken joke.

They just want to make sure people don't stop playing the demo or get bored with it and don't buy the game when it comes out. If the game's been delayed then it makes sense from a consumer support standpoint. Then again, everybody played the BF1942 demo for MONTHS before that game came out. The flight sim community is small and I can see how they'd be a little gunshy about releasing the demo if the game's not going to be out for while. this should be worth the wait though.

You have to understand something. Michael Bolton keeps me on a short leash which prevents me from having a lot of fun. He made an exception and that was the LOMAC demo and now that it's been delayed I'm back on the leash.

Boo hoo, you have to wait for a little over a month, the horror. Always something to bitch about with gamers around, eh?

Assholes, get it out already. There is zero reason to hold the demo off if it is DONE.

you know... if the demo came out shitty, people would complain that this was supposed to be representative of the final product: i.e. it is a demonstration of what the final game will play like (gameplay and stability).

bad move by UBI soft IMO.

Word of mouth takes time to spread - i don't think they appreciate the effects word of mouth has on sales in the flight simming community.

"Wasn't it delayed like a week ago too? It's a DEMO, it doesn't have to be frickin perfect... seriously man"

No, the full game release was delayed a week ago. This is delay relates to the demo.
