First off, I don't want this to become a 360 vs. PS3 fight thread so please be civil if there are any disagreements. Constructive arguments are welcomed. This is mostly geared towards people who own only an Xbox 360 like me but PS3 users feel free to say something.
As we all know, Xbox 360 users have been patiently waiting for the MK demo which has been released on PS3 almost a month ago. MK will be released in 17 days and I'm not really itching to play the demo anymore if that's what you're wondering. I am however disappointed with how this has played out. I would have loved to have gotten it around the same time as PS3 users, no doubt about that. Don't get me wrong, I can understand PS3 users saying "well you guys get everything before us usually" and I'm very happy that some fellow fans have access to this demo. Here's where some people may disagree with what I have to say, but all I have to ask is look at it from my perspective as a 360 user and not just a disappointed fan..
Xbox 360 users have to pay to use Xbox Live, and in return we do get early access to most things. On PS3, Playstation Plus is an option. I feel, as a 360 user, we should be given early/exclusive access because it's a paid service. And that because I pay (and willing choose so) we shouldn't be jipped out of content on at least a moderately popular game. I'm not saying we should have gotten the demo before PS users, but at least around the same time as them. As a willingly paying consumer of a premium online service, we should not have been given the boot on the demo. I know it's been confirmed but for me at least it's a little late for apologies by NRS or Warner Bros or whoever. It's a little frustrating.
PS3 users, I know you made the choice to have a PS3 and that was yours alone for whatever reasons. I chose the 360 for my reasons, the payed online service for early/exclusive content being one of them. The PS3 users that don't pay for service, that's what you choose to do. It's your choice to wait for most stuff. Look at it from my perspective, I pay extra for the content early. I feel a little jipped because I pay for it and the goods weren't delivered (timely, at least). I'm totally happy for you guys that you got to download and play it. Old build or not, it's a taste your fellow 360 fans didn't get. I'm more mad that some and not all fans got a taste of the game that we all equally deserve.
It doesn't matter if we play 360 or PS3, we are all Mortal Kombat fans. Whatever the true story is behind the demo, I guess now it doesn't really matter whose fault it really is. In the end, regards to the timely availability of the demo, some fans lost without good reason.
Again, any constructive arguments or disagreements are welcome. No hate or bashing please.
