IMO.....
If they release it, it will mostly like be for the NA and others who are not getting the full game on the 19th.

I feel bad, here I go and find some good info, and now it ain't happin. That's life in the gaming world.

Well, you want them to release a bugged demo and screw players worldwide to not like the game or do you want them to make the demo as good as possible so more people buy it?
They said they needed to work out some issues, the fact its still not out clearly shows getting those bugs out isnt that easy. Just sit back and wait.

Bohemia Have to be the slowest game developer ever.

ArmA 2 = Late
BI forums upgrade = Late
Community Awards = Late
ArmA 2 demo - late

It's starting to tick me off.

ArmA2 late???? You seen the premature German release?

I really can not care less about these things. I have enough things to keep myself busy with while waiting :)
If ArmA2 and everything connected with it would generate my montly income I would be bothered by it, but now.............. :2cheers

They just have to make a Diet Coke version that's already been out. This is why you don't announce dates inless you are absolutely positive. It pisses off the potential customers and makes your team look clueless.

Wow it's funny to see people getting pissed off about a demo not being released when the 505 version is already heading its way into shops (unless my source is lying to me:O_o ). I can understand that people wanting to wait for the demo to test the water before buying it. However in my mind and I'm sure in BI's mind, you come 2nd place to the people that want to take that leap of faith and buy the game as soon as it comes out.

I also believe I saw that BI are working on a new patch, so there again the real thing is going to be more important to get finished then the teaser demo, I'm sure most if not all of you can understand that.

Just remember that you have waited this long, I'm sure another week or so won't hurt you ;)
