One of our lovely forum members snagged this pretty interesting find. On UK’s official Xbox page of information about the Microsoft points you can buy to download content from the marketplace, there’s a picture on the site that reads ‘Gears of War DEMO’. Epic has consistently denied a demo, but we’ve got a picture that says otherwise.
Update: Looks like the idea of a demo has been shot down big time by Mark Rein at the official forums. Nice idea, but won’t be happening. Shame.
This pretty much confirms a demo of Gears of War, but it does not confirm when it will be released. Will it be before November 12? Will it be 6 months after the release? It’s too early to tell obviously. Another thing to note that it’s in the Microsoft points section of Xbox.com. Xboxic is strongly hoping that we won’t need to pay for this demo. It would really suck. It’s probably nothing, but it is something to look out for.
We do however have a screenshot to show you:
It’s only a matter of time before Microsoft yanks the picture down, unless something is going to be announced today. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Thanks to MIT ACID for finding this and posting it in our forum.
