Atari: T3 Demo Not Official

Atari sends word that the Terminator 3: war of the Machines demo in the story following this one is not the official demo for the game. While we cannot put the genie back in the bottle and un-post the news, here is their warning that this actually represents an early beta:
It has come to our attention that the media demo of T3 War has been placed on the Atari Australia web site for download by consumers. This is a mistake.

Please be aware that this build is NOT meant in any way to be a consumer "demo" and it will be removed from our site shortly. We will be releasing the real consumer demo in the near future, but the version that is online now will not be compatible with the official demo nor will it be compatible with the final game, both of which will have improved performance and online play.

Please do not direct your readers to this demo in Australia. If you have already posted the news, please remove it. If you feel you must mention this demo in a news item, it should be referred to as an early Beta Test for the game -- which it is -- this is NOT a "demo." It was meant for press eyes only and came with disclaimers as to what was not incorporated into the build at this time.

This demo's availability will only lead to confusion and compatibility issues, and you should wait for the official demo.

Dammit, we didn't realise you people wouldn't blindly accept the fact that our stupendously shitty game is the Holy Grail of gaming. In response to these complaints, and for fear of not selling any copies, we're just inventing this story that this is "early" code, when in fact we're close to Gold, hoping that you'll still be tricked into buying it.

Infogrames is so smart, it just defies descriptions. The layers upon layers of careful deceit and misdirections they build are too much for even Miss Marple to unweave...

this game looks like a lot of fun! But unfortunitly the demo is horrible... It takes a full 200 shots to kill anyone and the lag is horrible.

LOL. I feel love.

Come on, do you really think we'd put out a demo and an hour later remove it on purpose? Get real!

I KNEW this was gonna blow, but didn`t figure on it blowing that bad. Graphically? This should have been released back in the days of Delta Force 2. There was nothing in the demo that looked like it used any T&L whatsoever. The Terminators should have been way better done artworkwise.

At any rate, the devs should have someones foot shoved up their asses for pissing all over such a great franchise so far. But, it happened to BladeRunner, AvP, etc. So.....

the thing i don't get is "you can't put the genie back in the bottle." uh, why would it be so hard to just pull the links if they're saying the demo isn't the one they wanted to be released? does INSISTING that everyone get the opp. to see this version of the demo somehow build the site's "street cred," or is it just a way to be obnoxious? i'm curious.

if we were talking about videos of war crimes or something, i might understand not caving to The Man's request. but it's a game demo they're saying isn't done. regardless of whether the final demo sucks, it just seems that not editing the original story to pull the links is an act of a napoleon-complexed webmaster rather than an "ethical" games journo.

I've actually played the demo and although it needs tweaking I like what I see so far (only played the future bombed out downtown map in mission mode though). I put more comments in the other thread. Mission mode seems like a cross between Wolf ET and Halo (vehicles). Not as good but still promising. I thought the look and feel were right on the money. There are still a number of things which suck but I go into that in the other thread.
