BF2142 Demo Thu/Fri/Sat

EA clarifies the release schedule for the Battlefield 2142 demo, which involves a series of cascading exclusivities more worthy of a puzzle game or a tycoon sim than a military shooter. On Thursday the sample of the shooter sequel will be available as a 24 hour exclusive for customers who have preordered the Collector's Edition. The public debut of the demo will take place on Friday, but this too will be an exclusive, with partner sites (in the US it will be GameSpot) to have first crack at distributing this non-egalitarian sample of the game through Saturday morning:
This week sees the release of the BF2142 Demo, through several channels and pre-order systems already in place.

The release schedule is as follows:

The Battlefield 2142 demo will be available to customers who have pre-ordered the Battlefield 2142: DICE Collector's Edition on Thursday, 5th October for 24 hours exclusively.

It will then be available on exclusive sites publicly from Friday, 6th October. E.G. The US site for this portion of the release is Gamespot.

The exclusivity period will end at 9AM CET, Saturday 7th October so please refrain from posting the demo until this time. We appreciate your co-operation in respecting the exclusivity arrangements.

I will send out messaging on Saturday as soon as I have the file and have placed it up for download.

I don't get it... I don't really like BF2, and I don't play it very often. I also don't plan on buying BF2142. But when I do play BF2, it doesn't seem exceptionally broken to me.

I primarily dislike gameplay aspects of it (the fact that it takes a full clip to drop someone). But sheesh, why are you guys so pissed off about BF2? It works, as far as I can tell. I'm not saying it works well, but it nevertheless seems to work.

If I had to guess (and I don't) I would answer the question by saying, "Everyone who bitched about Legacy not having a demo, and everyone who bitched about this game having a demo."

Oh, and for clarity's sake, if you're not in either group then you are in no way relevant to the initial statement.

who cares if there is a demo or not? if youve played one BF game, youve played them all

in other words, for clarity sake: ITS THE SAME FUCKING THING

Fuck this complicated BS for a demo. Why can't they just release it for everyone, like other game companies do. I'm sick of this exclusivity crap. I wasn't planning to buy it since I hardly play BF2 anymore, but I was going to try the demo. Who knows, I may have liked it and bought BF2142, but since they're going to make everyone jump through hoops to get the demo, I'm not even interested anymore. I'll pass thank you very much EA.

Lets just be good peons and not revolt against this fishy business tactic ( which only works because there is enough people falling for it, or just not giving a fuck ( as usual )). After all it earns the Exclusive People bragging rights to their grand children

Im sick of the mess that is BF2 and its hard sell for its glorified mods. Make a new game, patch the old one, or STFU.
I'd pay good money for BF2 made by a company that likes its customers.

Dear EA you are fucktards and here's why:

1)Your servers couldn't even handle everyone getting the last BF2 patch from your Downloader let alone the full demo.
2)Remember the fuckasstrophe that was Gamespot debuting the BF 2 Demo?
3) You piss of your already angry gamer base for 24 hour exclusitivity of a god damn demo?

Dear The Half Elf,

We at EA thank you for your continued interest in our revolutionary new total conversion game, Battlefield 2142. If we haven't already, we would like to personally stick our cock in your ear. Here's why:

1) If you or anyone else you know has any information regarding a patch for the revolutionary game Battlefield 2, we urge you to contact EA and/or our exclusive partner sites at once so that we may begin legal proceedings against those who would see fit to support our product. If they work for us, we will fire them at once unless we already have. That is absolutely unacceptable behaviour.

2) "fuckasstrophe".. heh.. nice. With your permission, we would like to use this as the official subtitle for our revolutionary new total conversion game. On second thought, what the fuck are we thinking asking your permission? We're EA and do whatever the fuck we want. From now on, please enjoy our revolutionary new total conversion game Battlefield 2142: Fuckasstrophe

3) It's not that we are necessarily very bad, we're not, but there is a very vocal minority on the forums who say 'EA is crap' and 'DICE are lazy', but they're all probably playing the game every day already anyway. We have minor problems, sometimes we have big problems, but minor problems are not what people should write about. Maybe they should write about why they're playing Battlefield every day. But that's human nature, I guess - you have a vocal minority and a silent majority.

And quite frankly, we don't give a rat's ass which camp you fall into, just shut the fuck up and assume the position, Jack.

The Battlefield 2142 demo will be available to customers who have pre-ordered the Battlefield 2142: DICE Collector's Edition on Thursday and to anyone who knows what a torrent site is.

Still, I'll pass.

The demo will get leaked because whenever people feel like their hurting EA they seem to enjoy it.

If you know where to look you'll be able to find the demo tomorrow.

Yes, I want to rush and grab a demo using the map that I've played several hundred times already.

Dumb bastards.

It's a new map, but continue with your hate fest if it makes you happy

I know what I am going to get with this, but I'll try the demo, probably wont buy it since:

A: I really really dislike EA
B: I think I can wait for quake wars.
