    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    My 360 just got collected and I'll lay money on not getting it back till after the 14th /cry

    Why can't they just leave the demos up after the 14th? :(

    Rock on! Can't wait for this, but it had better live up to its hype (though I'm not exactly holding my breath).

    They're releasing a demo four months before the game comes out, that's quite unusual I think? Or not?

    I quite liked this demo, better than moto for me. I liked it better than NFMW too. A likely buy this one I think.

    I didn't like it that much, found the cars weren't responsive enough for my tastes. I admit though I only put about 5 mins into it, so maybe I need to give it more of a go. The premise behind it (a racing MMO game) is excellent, I think it just needs better controls and more responsive cars.

    I downloaded the demo late Sunday eveing. Played it this afternoon, it tried to connect to a server at startup, failed with an error message then let me continue in offline mode. Was online play available during during E3?

    Datamonkey, downloads seem to take ages for me too on an NTL 10Mb link too. But downloads were fast on Sunday night, got 3 in less than 30 mins. TDU, MotoGP and something else.

    You wont break your 360 :p

    Its the game code thats unstable, not a hardware issue.

    It was only crashing on Multiplayer on offline i have had an occasional crash though pretty rare. :)

    Edit: I say crashes but its not that dramatic just screen freezes and got to reset.
