Following on from our earlier article which pinpointed the exact release times for the FIFA 13 demo, we can now confirm that the demo has indeed gone live for PC and Xbox 360 users with a Gold membership.
As you’ve probably guessed by now though, PS3 users are still waiting for their chance to play the demo and it seems to continue the bad mood that PS3 users have right now after getting a royal slap in the face over the lack of Dawnguard for the PS3 version of Skyrim.
The growing consensus amongst PS3 users is that they are feeling pretty hard done by at the moment and hearing that the FIFA 13 demo has been given a release time estimation of 12 hours after Xbox 360 users get it, is hardly going to improve the situation. For those that are still not aware, EA slapped a 10pm UK time estimation on the PS3 demo, although it could even arrive at 2am at the latest as well.
Meanwhile, some of you have been having your say on the situation, in a heated discussion in our previous article here. We see old arguments brought up such as ‘Xbox 360 users have to pay to play online, so PS3 users who don’t should have to wait longer’.
Then there’s a even a separate argument brought up on how the PS3 still doesn’t have cross game voice chat – although we’re not sure how that comes into a discussion on the FIFA 13 demo.
EA has said on Twitter that this is out of their hands and is Sony’s problem why the demo hasn’t arrived at the same time as Xbox 360 users. Twelve hours is a bit of a stretch though, considering all store items usually arrive sometime in the afternoon, or at the latest around 6pm UK time.
If you are a PS3 user reading this, how do you feel now that you have again been given the short straw compared to Xbox 360 and PC?
