Want to be First to Duke Nukem Forever Demo?

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 41 comments

Then you'll have to buy the new release of Borderlands.

Can you believe it? Duke Nukem Forever is real again and will be an actual, finished product sometime in 2011. Yes, you may still be skeptical, but the game is now in the hands of Gearbox Software, the makers of Borderlands.

Before the game will ship, Gearbox will produce a demo to give everyone a taste of the modern age Duke – but it won't be available to everyone right away. If you love Duke Nukem, hopefully you'll love Borderlands too. 2K Games and Gearbox Software are trying to give Borderlands one last push with a game of the year edition that'll also grant its owners early access to the Duke Nukem Forever demo.

Borderlands Game of the Year edition will be available beginning October 12 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $59.99, and for PC for $49.99. this package will come complete with all the Borderlands DLC catalog thus far, which includes The Zombie Island or Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi's Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and Claptrap's New Robot Revolution (regularly $10 each).

The real seller could be the free membership certificate for the Duke Nukem Forever First Access Club. This certificate entitles owners who register their unique key to "a wealth of goodies," including the earliest possible admittance to the Duke Nukem Forever playable demo.

For all gamers who haven't yet picked up Borderlands, this is a great deal. For those who grabbed Borderlands when it launched last year (like I did), this is a bit of a bummer.

    As alidan has hinted at... I personally will not think twice about downloading this demo. I mean the demo is not even being bundled with a newish game. Although I am fairly sure that the demo will miss the one thing we all want from DN... formidable online multiplayer.

    In this scenario, I'll have to say, no. No it isn't.

    If I have some cash, I'll be sure to pick up the GoTY edition. :D

    "Want to be First to Duke Nukem Forever Demo?"

    No. I no longer care because they took too damn long to come out with it. And why is a PC version of a game going to be cheaper then console versions?

    PC games are always cheaper than consoles
    Didn't you know?

    ...because they usually are. (Not that it makes a hell of a lot of sense.)

    I've heard countless times Microsoft and Sony charge roughly $10 per game released on console, or so I've heard.

    But EA and Ubisoft are looking to change that apparently, with new PC games running 59.99. Like SC:C, Assassin's Creed 2, Crysis 2 and MOH.

    Console makers lose money / maybe break even on hardware knowing that they will make it up on games sales. Not so with PC's, hence the lower price.

    I'm going to buy it. I hate to admit it, but I'm going to buy it, and I'm going to play the demo first, then Borderlands :D .
