Battlefield Bad Company 2 Demo Launches Surprise Attack On Xbox 360

Not to be outdone by the impending release of a beta on the PC, the Xbox 360 has secured some Battlefield Bad Company 2 action of its own, with the surprise release of a demo.

Originally intended solely for the Australian market, the demo has now been downloaded - and played - by people all over the world. People who care not for the fact the demo wasn't supposed to be out until February 4; it's out now, servers are working, so they're going at it.

If you're worried about it being locked down by EA and/or Microsoft, don't sweat it: it has the official blessing of DICE, so have at it.

    yeah where the f-bomb is our pc DEMO ? ... beta? waaaa!! I want in so badly!! since getting this GTX 285 graphics card the only thing I felt was testing it was DIRT 2 !

    Sigh, it would be Fing amazing if something like this happened on the PSN for a change...

      I'm fairly sure it was on the PSN first

    OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! ......downloading.......

    Game was rubbish for the half hour I played it. Lagging like hell and fairly poor graphics... The only thing I liked was that you can (in the full game) fit a scope to your guns and the map loading screens are more like BF2's instead of Bad Company's :P

    It was pretty crap. But most likely CAUSE its a demo.

    Sometimes, i dont get why developers look at other games and learn from that. They really like to make things so complex.

    Whats with not being able to go prone?? And the melee button is stupid. I know they dont wanna make it like a MW2 clone - but aren't they "attempting" to knock COD off its very high pedestal? At least do the things COD does better, cause so far, DICE have failed.
