Skate demo releases next week…bad timing?

The new week is coming and we all know what is coming with it. Bioshock. With the success the beta has had and all the hype it has produced, many other games are and will be overshadowed. One will be Skate and its demo that is set to release on the 21st. Yes, the very day Bioshock releases. Doesn’t EA see that Bioshock is under close watch by every gamer. Whether it is a Bioshock lover or one of the few Bioshock haters, they still have Bioshock on their mind. If i was Peter Moore, I would take advantage of his new position in EA and release that demo one day earlier, on Monday.

It would be an smart move, obviously. A demo can be the tipping point for people who are on the fence or completely impassive to their game. Just look at Bioshock. A great game yes, but how much of the people out there knew what the game had to offer, until their demo was released? The demo is the sole reason why Gamestop/EB Games has ended all Limited Edition pre-orders, the reason for the limited faceplates have suddenly been selling for $50-$100 on ebay and the sole reason why this and all other sites can’t stop raving about Bioshock.

Well Tuesday is coming, someone tell me how the demo is. My 360 isn’t seeing the dashboard til i get my healthy serving of Bioshock.
