    Prolly a screw up or something. Saw it mentioned on other sites too but the hopes of a demo were dismissed mostly. I can't see one coming tbh and refuse to jump to conclusions, cos the hype bandwagon will be underway soon. Just looks like a simple mistake.

    Probably just haven't updated the website as they're all still at E3 :p

    There's a thread about it over at the teamxbox forums, people were getting excited as it was counting down thinking a demo was about to be released but apparently at some point yesterday the timer changed. So they now think that they forgot to turn off the timer for E3 so it will just keep resetting itself.

    Pity though as i really wanted there to be a demo of this :)

    To me it reads -3 days ... as in 3 days ago, which would be about right?

    Yep looks the same to me.

    They mentioned the there being a demo going to be released but they did'nt give a date, they did say release is fall this year i think ?

    according to gameplay the release date has slipped to November, not sure how accurate that is though.

    If you download the Gears of War TV video from Live! they mention in that they were planning to release a demo before E3. Obviously that didn't come about though.

    I am unsure of the correct term for the brand of humour i was trying to impart. Merely the suggestion that things like this get out of hand in the brains of young people, with ridiculous conclusions.
