it is a hot deal
you get to try out the game for free before you buy. too many final fantasy since ff8 have gone bad. it saves a lot of people money if it is terrible.

I agree its not a deal.

Now if you can somehow get the Silent Hill Demo on the PS4, now thats a deal....

You're forgetting FF X.

But anyways, it's awesome news that the demo is up.

Thanks OP!

Really wanna give the game a shot. Big ff7 fan but afraid they've butchered the game.

Played through the demo.. it's not bad... It'll definitely be a good game..

I find the new battle system etc. Interesting..; however, sometimes I wish they would stick more to the original...

They're 100% just trying to appeal to a more casual/wide gamerbase.

Aside from gamers who actually enjoy JRPGs as a genre I almost guarantee 90% of gamers nowadays don't have the patience or attention span for a turn based system.

I only had a chance to play a few minutes before head into the office but I really like it. They retained the ability to play it like a turn based JRPG with the time slowdown but also let you just speed through battles too. Very nice hybrid system. You can push L3 for shortcuts by the way.

Full version game problem is they broke it into 3 parts at 79.99 a pop. I might do demo and see if I can cancel my pre-order. Thnx

Delete if not appropriate but for those that have been waiting years for this, you don't have to wait until May to try out the game.

Anyone downloading the demo before May 11 will also get “an exclusive PlayStation 4 theme when the full game launches next month.”

Thanks OP, I’m glad they still make demos.

I was very much against the remake when it started as I didn’t think they’d do a good job with it (and I’m still skeptical, just less so) but with each trailer they seem to do a better job with it. Glad there’s a way to check it out before forking over money.
