Diablo III, FIFA 14 demos hit Xbox Live

New demos for high-profile games arrive on Xbox 360.

Demos for Diablo III, FIFA 14, and Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 are now available on Xbox Live.

The Diablo III demo features all five Hero classes, local and online multiplayer, and game progression up the Skeleton King. Demo saves can be carried forward to the full game. Diablo III for consoles launched earlier this month.

The FIFA 14 demo introduces players to the game's new Pure Shot feature and ball physics systems that aims to transform shooting to make every shot attempt "feel real." FIFA 14 launches in full on September 24 for current-generation consoles before heading to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in November.

Lastly, the Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 demo gives players a glimpse into the first game in the series powered by the FOX Engine. Konami said "every element" of the game has been rebuilt, including all-new physics systems and updates to team and player AI. This also includes a "huge leap forward" for animations and atmosphere.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2014 comes to current-generation consoles on September 24. Next-generation versions of the game have not been announced.

Just the fact that Diablo 3 is better on console then on PC Angers me.

No AH/RMAH
Offline Mode, Lan Mode, Local Co-Op, Private or Public games.....

Loot is handled very well....

God damn Blizzard. I hate you so much.

Downloaded the Demo. I must say I'm impressed. If it wasn't for GTA I would for sure buy it now. Still probably will be the next game to pick up after GTA, if I don´t die of old age playing it.

downloaded diablo 3 quite like it on 360. while i not played it on pc i get the feeling the controls on pc would have been that awful system where you click the mouse to move and click the mouse hoveing over enermy to attack. that system turns so many games that would be good into feeling like some crap fb game.if i am wrong and the pc game don't control like that and uses the controller then good for the pc version because then it won't suck.

Downloading this weekend. Will see if local multiplayer is good enough to finally merit a purchase.

D3 console > pc version. Sad but true!

FIFA 14 is EXACTLY like 13, only small changes like adding the new kits, updated rosters, and newer boots (which they removed more than they added!)

I downloaded the Diablo3 demo on psn (Australian store) already. why no mention of this?  Demo save also carries onto the full retail version.

Don't give a **** about either of the soccer games, but I'm gonna give D3 a try.

Haven't played a Diablo game since 1 on pc waaay back when.  Heard nothing but good things about the console version of D3.  If the demo confirms those things, I may pick it up at some point.

D3 is a complete dumpster fire. Why would anyone buy a  stripped down version of that piece of shit PC game?

There is no demo for either game on the PSN store; if they don't allow me to sample the games I simply won't buy their product.

@jtthegame316  

to be fair, you don't constantly click....you can hold the mouse in, even for attacks.

Peoples main problem was the AH, RMAH and the fact that the game was aMess when they forced DRM onto players.

@pwnater777 It seems much slower. In reality the real FIFA 14 is on Xbox one and PS4.

@puukusa lol, feck off to IGN, the most Sony-fannyboy loving site out there. GS is non-bias for the most part from what I see. ONLY sony fanboys say otherwise.

@puukusa  

Meanwhile, Gamespot spent the last 4 months putting out nothing but negative articles concerning the Xbox One.

Dummy.

@puukusa diablo 3 on ps 3 is mentioned every were more so than the xbox version. if anything games spot is bais to sony which is why most sony trolls live on this site trolling xbox stories. did you think for a minute that the demo has not gone on psn yet or was on psn already? it is a news about the xbox demo because the xbox demo has only just gone up

@BradBurns There is a PS3 demo, it's just that Eddie Makdouche is a xbot

@enoslives7 It's actually better on consoles. I've put 30 hours in already and I'm nowhere near done. No AH Tycoon, great drops (3 legendaries in 2 hours of play) and offline play. Troll harder.

@somatzu It's a video games console. It comes with a control pad that you use to play games with. These games come on CD's,and when it's all hooked up it produces a visual display on your t.v at home. Hope thats helped somatzu.

@SJGSpook @pwnater777 FIFA and PES are done for this gen. They can milk it all they want but both have reached a plateau. 

Especially when it comes to PES, just downloaded the demo and the engine clearly isn't for this gen. It´s not a fluid experience at all.

Apart from that, both games are imo overcomplicating the controls in the last years. Someone needs to come up with a more intelligent way to play them without having to push like 8 buttons and 2 sticks, and X different combinations. It´s football, it´s not a racing game, it´s supposed to be intuitive and fun. And both series are not delivering that, at least from my perspective.

@DrSpeedyNuts @somatzu no comes down to the games. no good having a good controller if the games suck. although if you can have both great games and a good contorller that is awesome

@puukusa there was always plenty of positive things about the xbox one but fanboys like the turn even the positive things into a negative.

@puukusa @jtthegame316 i was not talking about this artical but i have seen on tv it shown on ps 3 as if it is only on ps 3 and all over the net it has been as if it is just on ps 3.  for some people this stroy will be the first they heard that it is on xbox  with how much the ps 3 version has been pushed

@bilboad @Arklite61 @vadagar1 yeah they are all visible but when you try to pick anything other then the wizard or barbarian it just says hero available in the full game.  Its really not that big of a deal its only a demo just kind of annoying that they got it wrong in the article.

@Arklite61 @vadagar1 Weird, I downloaded the 360 demo yesterday it showed all 5 classes, and it seemed like I could choose any of them.  I've only tried playing the wizard though.  Are you saying it showed all five, but if you try to choose one of the others it won't let you play it?  Have to try it when I get home.
