Rainbow Six: Vegas demo EU exclusive? [Update]

As you might have heard; the singeplayer demo for Rainbow Six: Vegas is set for a release on the Xbox Live Marketplace tomorrow. However, American gamers might be left out, a press release on the Ubisoft UK says states that the “demo will be available on the European Xbox Live Marketplace on 23rd October, 2006″. There’s no word on the demo on the Ubisoft US site.
Update: the demo will hit the Marketplace around 6pm CET!

Rainbow Six: VegasRainbow Six: Vegas

Get a taste of What awaits in the first Next-Gen Rainbow Six
Kicking off the countdown to the game’s release, Ubisoft announced today that the single player playable demo of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Vegas for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft will be made available to consumers. The Xbox 360™ demo will be available on the European Xbox Live™ Marketplace™ on 23rd October, 2006.

The single player demo features part of the “Dante’s Casino” level of the single player mission. Players will Observe, Plan and Assault (O.P.A.) their way through the Gothic-themed casino that is under construction and believed to be a hideout for the terrorist leaders.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Vegas will ship worldwide this Autumn 2006 on Xbox 360, Games for Windows and the PlayStation Portable (PSP™) while the PlayStation®3 will be available at European launch.

It might be nothing but better safe than sorry. So I suggest you guys use this lazy Sunday to set up an European Xbox Live account. Head over to our Wiki for directions on how to do this.

I’m in California and I got this demo like 3 days ago (Oct.19th) from the Official Xbox Magazine with Rainbow Six: Vegas featured on the cover. Just head to your local Barnes & Noble to get it. Couple other demos included as well.

That would also be pretty ironic that a game called Rainbow Six: VEGAS, which features U.S. elite troops fighting terrorism in Las Vegas, Nevada, would be released in Europe before the U.S….

Funnily the mayor of Las Vegas tried to stop the game’s release, so it wouldn’t be all that weird I think :)

Fairly sure that Rainbow Six was multi-national. I certainly remember german, british, mexican members in addition to the US members of the team… of course, that was back when R6 was PC only :)

its funny and ironic how this game is based in Las Vegas, yet it is going to be sold in other places 2. wow…

Xsata might be the solution to that. Download from marketplace, copy to PC, release over torrents.
Not everyone will be able to play it but its better than nothing

You said this quite a few times… No one will do it.

I’ll do it if someone really wants me to (i have a slow upload speed though) but setting up an European Xbox Live account would be alot faster (dont know how i didnt see that when i posted first time)

Nice demo I hope, I’ll take a guess it’s what they showed at E3

So PS3 version is delayed until European launch is it? PS3 is starting to get crippled severely

Yes indeed! Its such a shame we won’t have the game for PS3 before we have the console???

Well the yanks and japs can’t buy it until then either. It’s just Europe thats getting screwed on the release date.

Filthy Fuckers

Looks cool, I’ll buy it … I’ve enjoyed all RB6 titles so far.

I heard about a week ago that it would launch Oct. 24th, for the U.S.

Hehehheheeh TAKE THAT AMERICANS!! :P
Lol, no it’s sucks for those living in America, but it’s nice to at least have SOMETHING in EU before US… that’s pretty rare you know??

marketplace content is accesible everywhere, just make 3 accounts, one account for japan, one for UK , and one for US lol. That way you have EU,Asian, and American releases XD it’s not like they look at your ISP to determine if your allowed to download the content, even then we’d find way to run our 360s through a proxy

So I suggest you guys use this lazy Sunday to set up an European Xbox Live account.

Tom Clancy plus Red Vines equals crazy delicious.

Red Vines?!

It’s a Saturday Night Live reference. I’m ashamed really, that show is such garbage now…

So I guess this means canada to. :(

Well if it happens to hit the EU, before US, no biggie. Because as they say we here in the US almost always get the goods before the EU. So I’m glad to see they get the demo before us for a change. I’m glad its just the demo though. Thankfully we get GOW before the EU does.

You may have the shitty PS3 with it at the same time.

Thankfully they won’t release that pile of shitload of lies before Spring 2007 overhere.

Yeah Sony. Gears of War releases 5 days after US launch overhere. Not 5 months hahaaa

One of the few so called next-gen games I still have high hopes for and this demo will play a major role in my next 2 purchases, one beeing the game itself and the other beeing GoW. This is the first time we get our hands on a UE3 product so that should shed some light on the things to come.
