Not for Xbox 360 owners, anyways. The promised demo for this still-hotly anticipated game (it’s been about ten years of dev time) released for PC owners flawlessly, but the Xbox Live Marketplace demo is still sitting somewhere not reachable by mere gamers. With the upcoming Live Anywhere feature, does Microsoft really think anyone buys into it anymore? Downloadable content is reaching a boiling point of costing too much and delivering too little, and Microsoft’s Xbox division has only been fronting it for six months. Add in some chronic lateness (Street Fighter II arcade? Anyone? Street Fighter II arcade?) and it’s a horrible fantasy land for MS to think that being able to access the marketplace anywhere is a perk.
The worst part is, they’re still likely to end this generation the solid market leader in console games.
