EA Modifies NCAA Basketball 10 Demo Availability

EA Sports has sent out a press release announcing the availability of the NCAA Basketball 10 demo. It is now available for the 360. While it has not shown up in the “New Arrivals” section it can be found by going to “All Game Demos” and searching by the letter ‘N’.

What is most stunning out of the press release is a change to when the PS3 will be receiving the demo. The NCAA Basketball 10 website has been clearly advertising the release of the demo as November 6th for several weeks. However now it has been revealed that the demo will not make its way to PSN until November 19th. That is two days AFTER the release of the game.

If the demo dates are going to be console specific they need to be advertised that way. Not only is this disappointing news for PS3 owners who are interested in the game but as was seen with NBA Live 10 the demo can result in early community feedback that makes its way into a patch.

    Yea I wasn't gonig to buy this anyways, but I can see how it's going to piss some people off and deter them from buying it for a week after release. I won't be surprised if this game sells poorly.

    wow ea..as a ps3 owner i was counting down the days to play this and now i find out that i can own the whole game before playing the demo? makes alot of sense

    • Ovr23

      Well, in all fairness there are plenty of games that get demos after release. Ultimate Alliance 2 just got one and that came out in September.

      The problem here is that 360 users can try it now in advance, while PS3 users have to wait until after the game is out. That does not bode well for PS3 sales of the game.

    No demo no buy

    Ive been counting the days done for the demo for ps3 for months and now when its release time they tell us no demo to 2 days after the release. Well F U EA. EA is garbage. With all there broken games and patches and whats been going on with Madden and now Live.

    Im so put off now with no demo I will forget this game and move on to something else . Makes me Glade I just pirated EAs new game Dragon Age. I was gonnabuy it but thought why would I give another penny to EA when they rob all of us anyway with broken games.

    I actually think the demo is rock solid and looks much better than any vid I have seen.

    Yeah, sucks for PS3 owners. I have no idea why EA would go this route but it is what it is…Won't matter much regardless since everyone will be playing Modern Warfare 2…..

    As much as I have hated EA's college bball games in the past, I am itching for a new one. I am growing tired of College Hoops 2K7….

    I was hoping for TeamBuilder and/or Online Dynasty in this game. So I am really leaning toward not purchasing, even if the demo is solid.

    I'm just gunna paste what I posted, elsewhere, earlier:

    just wanna thank EA for siding with MS in terms of releasing these demos (that's sarcasm, folks)Has to be money that exchanged hands because EA and 2K's demos seem like the ONLY demos that come out earlier for "Gold members" on XBL than everyone else including us PS3 owners. Funny how EA could do a TON more with their sports games (and anything else, really) in terms of extras and enhancing gameplay on the PS3 than they can on the 360 yet they are giving short term demo exclusives to the 360.

    And what's worse is that this demo isn't even coming out the same time Silver XBL members are getting it , like usual – PS3ers get it the day AFTER the actual game releases. I don't know what's going on here whether it's an EA thing or Sony thing but I know I don't like it. I'll wait for the demo before putting cash on the retail version.
    ________________________________________________________________________________

    That being said, I will correct the fact that the game comes out TWO days before the PS3 demo.

    I'm a PS3 owner and to be honest, EA is a solid sports game distributor, but I don't understand how you can still make sh** games year after year. Madden, NBA, FIFA, and all the NCAA basketball games up to now have been garbage the last couple of years… If your making so much noise about this specific year of NCAA than it's not smart to leave players in the dark and use there money saved for this game elsewhere… although in my opinion Madden, NCAA football, and NHL have all been pretty good games this year.
