I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Strategic Planning Vice President Christian Svensson [on the Marvel VS Captom division] has announced that there will NOT be a download demo of the upcoming title.
Svenson also announced that there will be down-loadable characters for a small fee. While most gamers are quuk to rise up in anger over teh subject of paying full retail price for a game, and getting nickel and dimed on the extras, Svenson stated that “DLC is part of the business model these days given the massive costs of production and can be the difference between a profitable product and an unprofitable product.”
My many condolences to the TSG fighting game thread viewers and contributers.
Valve has confirmed though Gamescon the release date for the long anticipated Portal 2. Portal 2 will be hitting shelves Feburary 9th, 2011. Also confirmed from previous press releases, Portal 2 will be supported on the Playstation 3, and as Valve originally stated, it will be “the best version on any console”. However, it was also confirmed that Portal 2 will have neither 3D or PlayStation Move support. The game will also launch on the Xbox 360, Mac, PC, and will be released at the same time.
More suprisingly, however, is the direction the voice acting seems to have taken. It was also announced at Gamescon that hit “The Office” actor and writer Stephen Merchant has been selected to voice a “buddy sphere Wheatley” in the upcoming Portal 2.
