View Full Version : Ridge Racer 6 XBL demo

03-10-2006, 01:51 PM
Major Nelson announced that the demo for Ridge Racer 6 is available for download in the XBLM.

Wait, now it's gone. He's gonna let us know when it's available again.

What's that? Check again? Alright... wow! It's back again!

We'd normally be willing to overlook this minor SNAFU if it was the first time it had happened. The King Kong demo was pulled (http://www.majornelson.com/2006/02/13/king-kong-demo/) almost a month ago and is still not available for download, all that remains is the notice, "This demo has been removed. I’ll update you if/when it is replaced with an updated version." The demo system is one of the killer apps of the Xbox Live service (even when it is a little slow (http://www.joystiq.com/2006/03/07/still-downloading-downloading-downloading-xbox-360-ann/)), otherwise we wouldn't care.

Microsoft has distinguished themselves with active community participation from people like Mr. Hyrb (Major Nelson (http://www.majornelson.com/)) and the Gamerscore (http://gamerscoreblog.com/team/default.aspx) crew, but a little more transparency wouldn't hurt. Some examples might be: the Kong demo was pulled? Yeah, it was buggy. So, the RR6 demo is buggy? No, it was just a server error. I heard the GRAW demo is never coming out?
