"The demo will later be available for download on Xbox Live." "The demo will allow gamers to fight with Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Mileena and Johnny Cage in two of the games most renowned arenas - the Living Forest and the Pit. There's also an arcade ladder for one or two players." If you didn't see Pat's comment, :D But it also does tell you what it contains, four fighters, two stages, arcade ladder.

So once we do get the demo, we'll be able to play until Release Day?

$18 to play Mortal Kombat 7 days early ! Yes! That is a done deal.

Well the did say they'll be doing something they've never done before. This is it! I somewhat want to drop $18 for the Plus Membership, JUST for the demo. Sony must've paid them big time. Multi-platform games usually get the Xbox love first (from what I've seen in the years).

I'm wondering who did the exact same thing as me. I have the XBOX 360 Kollectors edition already bought but I also own a PS 3. I JUST subscribed to Playstation Plus for 3 months JUST so I could play this game a week early. Can't wait!

"Not buying a PSN+ account, but I did pick up a PS3 today shortly after hearing about this. I'm just gonna wait til the 15th." In all honesty man...If you bought a PS 3 after hearing this news, why would paying $18 dollars to play the game next week seem unreasonable? lol.

If I see enough decent looking freebies, I guess I can possibly justify the purchase. Anyone else care to share their opinion?
Well just now I've just heard of Stacker which is free on PSN+. From what I've read, it's available for $15 for standard users. The game looks fun as hell so this justifies getting the Quarter-Yearly Membership. Browsing through the PSN Store, I can see many free games for PSN+ Users. I may even consider getting the Yearly Subscription. But to be honest, I haven't used the PSN Store for months before this news came up.

No way in hell I'm wasting money again if it's like that.. I'm all multiplayer, so definitely going to rent first before taking any chances again.. so basically if the demo had multiplayer, and it was fun.. It would have sealed a buy for me. If no demo had ever come out I would have rented it, because of the mvc3 experience I had.. I'm just kind of disappointed there no multiplayer in it.. It would have been fun kicking your ass before April 19th comes.
So you're going to make a "purchase or rent" choice off of the lack of online multiplayer in the... demo? My head hurts trying to think of how that makes sense...

Just a heads up....if I see a zillion threads made on demo release day on the same things because people are overly excited and fail to use the search button, I will ban you all. =)

If you're "friends" refuse to hop off MvC3 for this then they aren't true fans. Or good people. Not good people at all.

Besides, there are other goodies on the PS Plus like Sonic the Hedgehog, Stacking, and others. I have just subscribed a few minutes ago...can't wait until the 8th!

+rep to you then good sir! People who can take jokes like that are awesome in my book. 2 people decided they'd take me seriously and -rep me. Kinda funny considering I have -166 rep HAHA. Oh yeah and I dig the Deadpool sig.

There will be multiplayer in this and it will have spectating(speculation, but Boon said something like he wanted it to be true to the Arcade experience) so I think he should've been a bit more grateful then he was.

I went to Target and bought a PSN+ 3 Month Card to avoid all this drama. Hope you find a way to fix your issue. Have you contacted support yet? Also readers do you guys want a MK Demo Forum for discussion of the game demo or would you rather not silo the demo stuff off and instead have extra forums for things like characters, etc?
Originally Posted by : JohnnyICageThen by all means, but you'd honestly just be getting a taste of your own medicine. I had to wait for Fallout DLC's because of my choice in system. I think you can wait patiently for the Demo due to your choice in system. Either way, I'm just happy the PS3 is getting some love.
I hope it does if not im gonna be P.O to the max.

And again ill be P.O if it doesn't.
Just an update: To make a long story short, I finally was able to sign up for PSN+. Great, right? Well sorta. As far as I'm concerned, I've pretty much just spent $18 for a Mortal Kombat demo (one that will be FREE, I think, one week from tomorrow). But what about the glorious freebies that are included with a PSN+ subscription, you ask? I'll say this: Sony is sneaky! After finally being able to join PSN+, I decided to go and download the plethora of free goodies they were offering. The first was Stacking. I clicked download and got a message basically telling me that while the game was totally free because I was a PSN+ subscriber now... it was only free and playable while I was a PSN+ subscriber. Translated: Once my PSN+ subscription runs out, I can no longer access any of the supposed freebies associated with the service. Really wish I had known that in the beginning. I was really only subscribing to access the MK demo early, but figured it was a smart buy and good deal because of the freebies. Probably should have taken the issues I had signing up as a hint! The morale of this story is: NOTHING IS FREE! /end_rant
