Issue 71 is May's copy of OPSM2 and comes out in late April.:hea:

Aparently May's copy comes out early in the month so i may be wrong about late April. see the later treads.

Look here and work it out for yourselves

56=Feb 2005
68=Feb 2006
69=MAR 2006
70=APR 2006
71 therefore is MAY 2006

Please don't shoot the messenger:confused:

Xbox demo am waiting to hear back.

PC demo is different in terms of distribution as it will be available online etc so we have more time to work on it (magazines have longer lead times)

Yes, but usually these magazines are brought out a month early - so therefore, the MAY 2006 issue will be in stores in the beginning of APRIL 2006.

Thanks Jay - will let my bf know (who is also, as it happens, called Jay..).

And that means that the PC demo is comming out first (in Feb?) or later? (Sorry, but my English isn't that good :))

I know but I don't understand the sentence. :D

So is it easier to release PC Demo as PS2 oder Xbox?

jaywalker

Means we get longer to work on the pc one as WE release it, not magazines or Sony/MS.

From what I can tell, the PC demo will most likely be out at the same time as the other versions. With the PS2 demo, they have to send it away now for it to come on the April issue. With the PC demo, they have right up until March/April to work on it as all they need to do is pop it online and it's there.

Edit - Ah jay already answered :D

03-02-06, 12:25
Thanks for the great info jay but I won't be pick up copy of the demo cause I don't want to spoil gameplay or anything for the full game before it's released... But saying that I'm probably talking complete nonsense and will end up playing it anyways :p it'll be very hard to resist it!

jaywalker
03-02-06, 12:53

By time we finish it magazines will be in later editions, so FASTEST way to get it would be online

Psychopompador

wow kiss bite- Shadow of the colossus came out last October, are you just getting it over ther now?

Dingaling
03-02-06, 16:01
Yeah, Europe is just getting it (Feb 17th I think). But, we get a whole host of extras - some ICO-like postcards, trailers, making of (I think), concept art and some other stuff.

I also bought the issue of OPSM2-UK for the Shadow of the Collosus demo! LoL.

Psychopompador
03-02-06, 16:14
you'll LOVE that game- it is soo well done. Fantastic game!


BTW jaywalker- any news on when the US OPM will get the demo? or did I miss the answer already?

shafqat88
03-02-06, 19:00
well, this will be the second ever of issue of official playstation magazine i will buy! thanks for the info

MisterCroft
03-02-06, 21:07
Bring it on. I have so much confidence in CD, that I wont rely on the demo making my mind up on buying the full game.

Psychopompador
03-02-06, 22:24
so, umm... my question still stands... does anyone know when the US PS2 demo will be on newsstands?

jaywalker
03-02-06, 22:25
am trying to find out for u

Psychopompador
03-02-06, 22:26

I wonder about where us AUSSIES stand on the Demo release date? And the Games release date for that matter?

05-02-06, 19:40
I haven't got time to read this whole thread, but in case this hasn't been said...

I was browsing magazines yesterday and saw the February issue of UK OPM on sale and that was numbered number 69. In that case number 71 will be the April issue and not May and shouls therefore be out in March sometime!

RoseTyler
05-02-06, 20:00
BUT we need a demo at least a month before the game is released... or 2 months maybe.... how 'bout nowwww! :p :jmp:

BoyTRaider
05-02-06, 20:02
I just hope the demo is not delayed to get to the U.S. :wve:

05-02-06, 20:04
Dont worry everyone, its not long to wait for legend so a Demo wont be long.

tsunami151
05-02-06, 20:17
Oh... come on! Stop whineing everyone! At least you can buy the magazine when it's out! Not like me... here in BG there isn't a OPM, actualy there aren't any PS2 magazines :hea:
P.S. Sorry if you don't understand... my English sucks;)

05-02-06, 20:57
I dont really understand why theyre releasing the demo so close to the release date, I mean shouldnt we be playing the game NOW like all of those online sites are?!

Timy226
05-02-06, 21:06
The demo most probably will be out end of March. As i have said before the deom for Full Auto for the 360 was released about 2 weeks before its release (it was released last week). Just an example btw.
