Roughly 4 hours ago the demo download count said 822,358 and I screen grabbed it and showed my friend on MSN, but I never saved the pic.

Now when I go to check I get 528,551 now this must be a bug or something. This means that some peoples downloads did not count or there was a bug which made the number incredibly higher than what it should be at.

Don't know if this is the case, but read on another forum that bioware adjusted it down due to "spamming" the demo dl.

This was actually more likely an EA promotion than a Bioware one. Bioware would just give us the books without this whole "Call to Arms!" business. EA would start the promotion so they can brag about download numbers, and if it doesn't reach its mark then they can still give out the reward to show they have a good side. Win-Win on their part.

Ya noticed the same thing myself. Either way I imagine with that count after only a couple of days, were still good for making the 1,000,000 mark by the 8th.

Actually the end date is March 1st...not the 8th. Here's hoping we can make it though! :locked

Well I've downloaded the demo for all 3 platforms, so I've done all I can. Hopefully we reach the mark.

Tbh, the promotional items are the lamest so far.

Does it matter what they are? FREE STUFFS! :P
It really depends on how much they give imo, hopefully it aint a massive boost or something that will make the start of the game easy ._.
And also i just checked the download count and its back up at 860,000 :)
Must of been a fault on their side, or my browser might be messing with me :P

Actually it was due to the demo being spammed, adding 300,000 to the counter. It was fixed back to 500k, but there was another 300k downloads bringing it back to where we left off. So no real error on their part or your browser.

Ah ok, thanks for clearing that up.
Didnt really think of the possibility of there actually being 300,000 downloads in that time xP

No is doesn't matter. But people shouldn't be worried if we don't make it.

Nice 1, thanks

Its at 1,111,036 now:drunk

It says they need 1000000 downloads and logins too, so make sure you log into your EA account (it automatically does it if you play the Demo on Live)

I dunno if theres a counter for that or if the counter is for DLs and Logins:confused:

Pretty sure the counter is for the amount of downloads and logins :)

Was there a bonus for 1m logins? Right now, we're well over the download count, which is astounding, considering it's only been 3 days, but I don't think there was a bonus for 1m logins.

Besides, if downloads were @ 1m, you can bet logins were much, much higher, since the game is tied to your account, and most people will keep the demo around till the game itself comes out! I know I certainly will
