    BioShock demo in August False, True, False, False, True, False, False, True etc

    The latest issue of OXM UK reveals that its cover disc next month will have a demo of BioShock. Thanks to 'splicer' from the 2k Forums for the pic.

    So I guess now all the obvious questions arise, like is it the magazine's exclusive (which means it's August 2nd we have to wait til) or will it be out before that issue? Also, is it only the 360 version of the game that will be having a demo out or will we PC gamers also get to taste it too? Furthermore, what will the demo comprise of? I'd say most likely a bit of the beginning of the game like with System Shock 2.

    [edit]
    Apparently, it's not happening (see below).

    I sure as hell hope the PC gets a demo, not just in that mag. It'd be lovely to get a taste of the game before I buy it.

    spoilers as possible.

    I'm also glad there won't be a demo. Otherwise, there would be spoilers all over the internet. We've already been spoiled and tainted enough as it is, in all of these previews.

    How can that magazine announce the demo when its not really going to happen?

    The rumour of the demo is spreading on the net, someone should do something about it.

    We are about to email oxm, send them messages on xbox live and phone them

    Im not amused that my friend splicer on 2k is being made to look like he doctored that shot, there has to be an element of truth in there somewhere.

    We are not releasing a demo via OXM next month. This magazine scan is false. I have double checked my facts.

    Sorry, Splicer.
    Surely oxm cant just claim they have the demo without securing it first


    Here is our ill fated friend






    ****I just rang Steve Brown editor of the official xbox magazine (uk) and he sounded very confident that the demo would arrive in time, thus confirming that there actually is a demo.
    He explained that they would have to send the disc off to Microsoft for there approval and that he doesnt see any problems in it being late for next months magazine****

    Fingers crossed

    Nobody was saying your friend had photoshopped the shot, just that information within the shot, ie that which was printed by OXM was not correct.

    2K have said for quite some time that there is no demo planned, at least before release and magazines have been known to print and promise things that fail to materialise.

    Er, yes they would actually. As David says, sometimes these things don't end up happening.

    From the magazine's perspective, it's in their interest to be blindly over-confident with something like that. They've already succeeded in getting people interested in buying the next issue ... anything after that -- like being entirely accurate with the actual chances of something happening, in this case zero -- takes second place.

    hey guys,

    i'm going to say again that this editor is wrong, even with that photo. OXM is not getting a demo for their magazine.

    Suggesting that the magazine's claim is false is not at all the same thing as accusing Splicer of doctoring that shot.

    Like that sort of thing has never happened before?

    Hang on!! He's only said that it hasn't arrived yet. How does that confirm the demo's existence? Btw, it hasn't arrived at my house yet either. Does that also confirm its existence?

    Right, the issue is over ( << rail slave on 2k forums), nicely explained by 2kbeth, much appreciated

    Firstly it was the suggestion that the scan was false

    Secondly, that should make sense, i trust people at an "official" xbox magazine to have a finger in some kind of pie.

    Thirdly,He is expecting it, people must have played some kind of demo at that bioshock launch party, i doubt ken was there manually resetting every machine.


    I accidentally hit redial later in the day trying to ring my girlfriend and i almost told him.

    Sorry if I came off as a smart ass. I didn't like my post when I re-read it, but completely forgot that this is a forum where mere mortals are allowed to edit what they've written.

    Whale poo...?

    BioShock's arriving pretty soon, so a demo isn't necessary. But, if there IS one, then I'll be all over it like a bad suit.

    British humour used to be a little more sophisticated than that. The place has really gone to shit since I left, hasn't it?
