There have been many posts of this so far, but thats okay :) Its good that you ask, it revives the xbox forum which is generally dead...

There hasnt been an answer on this, Reverie are devloping the game for PC first then porting it to xbox...

As pointed out before, a demo would be great for publicity, reaching a potentially massive audience, and tempting a much larger group into buying the game... It can be argued that console adaptations of RTS games generally dont do too well, yet they still make a profit usually.

A demo for this game would be difficult as its main gameplay revolves around multiplayer. Multiplayer demos are harder to make available in such a way as to tempt a purchaser rather than put them off. Either the demo could lack too many functions, or have too many and make getting the game obsolete...

Perhaps a multiplayer skirmish with choice of one or two maps could work?

Hope this has been of some help, even if I rambled a lot :)

Even with the stronghold defense mode and a couple maps the demo would be good.

A decent demo that perhaps contained a single player map and 1-2 multiplayer maps would be good and would entice more people to buy it. It worked on me when I played the bfme2 multiplayer demo and decided to get it for the xbox 360(terrible idea by the way).

it'd be neat if they would like release some sort of mini game or something on the market ^^

I just hope it eventually does get ported to xbox, there have been so many other games that have promised this same thing only to have them back out.

Yes an xbox demo to test out the control scheme to see if its the right kind of game for xbox would be great before purchasing it.

Demo always seem disappointing. Good review or videos work best
