DMC4 demo due on PSN, XBL in '08

Capcom action game slated to get Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 downloadable demos early next year.

by

Generally speaking, deals with the devil aren't made on a "try before you buy" basis. However, Capcom is planning an exception to the rule.

Today the publisher announced that it will make a downloadable demo for its upcoming action game Devil May Cry 4 available on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 early next year. The demo will allow players to put the series' new protagonist Nero through his paces in a variety of environments from the game as well as a boss battle.

Devil May Cry 4 is set for release on both consoles on February 5, with a PC edition to follow later in the year. The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will be available as a regular edition ($59.99) or in limited edition sets ($79.99) that include the first four episodes of the Devil May Cry: The Animated Series, and a PC disc with wallpapers, making-of footage, and more.

I love how people are still surprised that these games are coming out on 360... Have you not noticed how there are a minimal amount of games that are exclusive anymore? look at AC, they were Playstation exclusive and they switched. Even if the games are exclusive, its only for a certain amount of time... Companies would be ignorant to not bring the games to other consoles... None the less, it means i need one less system to play the games that are the most fun : )

IceDefenseGod, Yes the typical ps3 fanboy, go read interviews, the differences are minimal at best.

edhc44, getting a 360 for DMC4 is possibly the most ignorant thing I've ever heard. Why would you get a 360 for a game better on PS3?

I've played the first DMC a few years ago and it was cool, although I couldn't understand what the fuss was all about. Then I've played DMC3 last may and it turned out to be one of the best games I've ever played (just read my review)... Around the same time, it was announced that DMC4 was coming to the 360 as well and this announcement cleared any kind of doubts I had about buying the system. This is the kind of power that DMC4 has over me.

Cool. But I guess I'll dowload it on PSN, since Microsoft is making me wait a week for it.

DMC is one of the all time great franchises. DMC3 is THE best of them so far, barely edging out the 1st one. DMC4 is a must have, don't need a demo to convince me otherwise. The franchise is up there (IMO) with Metal Gear, SF, MK, Tekken, God of War (can't wait for 3), Zelda, SMB, Contra, RE, NG, etc. These franchises have staying power, something all don't necessarily have now. Trust me, if you've played 1 through 3, then 4 is a no-brainer!!!! Dante, Kratos and Snake are all bad-@$$es.

One of the few games that I truly suck at. Looks really good nonetheless.

I just hope Capcom makes a proper multi platform title here... As sad as it is if they just make a sorry a** port for the PS3 like everyone else has been doing I'd rather just give the game a skip... Do a proper PS3 version just like they will make a proper 360 one... No one on any platform deserves any less...

I hope that 360 owners properly reward the dev with record XBL downloads and big sales figures on release. The japanese devs need to be shown that they need to be responsive to sales numbers, not fanboy noise (case in point....all the SFB screaming about how great the PS3 games library is, yet one of the objectively best titles released so far, R&C, has sold less than 300k copies)

Guess I'll download both demos to finally decide what I'm buying it for! The game looks completely out of hand, I can't wait to finally play it.

Being able to try before you buy is a great feature. It gets me into games I have never tried before. I haven't played DMC at all but who knows, maybe the demo will rock.

80 for a game?!! That is so CHEAP. They should charge 300 for a game!

Mmm, demo. Anyway, enough with the console wars. Each versions will be just as good as each other since there won't be any Online play, so it'll just come down to which controller you PREFER. Not which control is BETTER. I love the 360 control (only marginally less than I loved the original XBox's S-Control), plus I won't be buying a PS3 until it gets some good games that aren't already cross-console, so I'll obviously be buying the 360 version. Who cares? Neither of the versions is superior, as they'll even have the same download content. Please, stop making fanboys out've yourselves.

also -DaMa- , that is such a n00b comment to make. everyone knows that when games are ported between the 360 and ps3, the ported version usually gets pounded anally. most of the multi platform games are developed through the familiar coding with the 360.

@ ARRONDI the only reason I say DMC2 was bad because the game wasn't even suppose to be DMC2 capcom saw the success of DMC1 and just sort of slapped it together and put DMC name on it. The original production team didn't even make it. Not wanting to start an argument with you are entitled to your opinion and I respect it. Just didn't like the game. @DaMa how can the platform it was started off with be the flop?

AWESOME. NOW IT'S FREE TO USE THE UNPRECEDENTED POWER OF XBOX360, DMC4 WILL SURELY RULE! FLOP ON PS3, DONT BUY THAT VERSION ITS FOR CASUALS!

@ArkDragon, nobody can EVER live up to Dante, which is why I advise everybody to get up to the rumored 'Fight with Dante' and then get killed. Anyways, nobody will live up to Dante, but I'm sure Nero will become pretty damn close. Edit: Btw, is Devil May Cry slightly based off of The Divine Comedy, or am I wrong?
