LucasArts has confirmed that the demo for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will release for Live and PSN on August 21.
From the release:
The demo gives players a taste of one of the early levels in the game: the TIE Fighter Construction Facility, under siege by a Jedi General named Rahm Kota. The Secret Apprentice has been sent by Darth Vader to hunt down and destroy the General, but is also told that, in order to remain a secret, he is to leave no witnesses.
Also included in the demo is a tutorial intended to teach players how to use their Force Grip power.

IGN’s posted up a hands-on preview with the PSP version of The Force Unleashed. It can be summed up thus:
“When a game gets plastered across a handful of platforms, it’s easy to assume that the PSP spectrum of things might get forgotten or overlooked. Although our time with the Force Unleashed was brief and there were a few so-so moments (limited lip movement in cutscenes, some ho-hum visuals in the levels, etc.) in the unfinished title, this game seems to be on its way to being a solid, beat’em up game. The story is intact, the powers are fun to use, and the customization aspect looks inviting.”

According to this IGN report, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is going to be shown at Gen Con in Brisbane this year.
The Australian event runs from July 3-6, and is primarily a tabletop gaming show, so there are no details on whether or not the game’s going to be playable, but there we are. Live in Australia? Go to Brisbane in July and see a Star Wars game. You may as well.

On Boomtown. Looking rosy. The Stars Wars latest is doing the do on DS, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii and 360 in September. Take a look.

A BBFC rating of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed has shown that a Fracture documentary will ship with the game in the UK.
The footage of the action game is 7.28 minutes long, as you can see after the break.
The news came as part of a BBFC rating for the Star Wars game, which has been given a 12.
We’ll drop Activision a mail now to clarify. Fracture has no fixed release date at the moment, and is currently listed as a PS3 and 360 title for “summer”. Considering The Force Unleashed is out in September, that’s probably a little optimistic.
Read the full BBFC listing after the link, but watch for spoilers.

After the link. Pretty lovely these, although you’re going to have to be “into” the whole “Star Wars thing” to get “much out of it,” unless we’re very much mistaken. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed hits 360, PS3, Wii, PS2, PSP and DS on September 9.

Nice. LucasArts is going to give a live gameplay presentation of title, apparently, which has been under wraps for far too long. Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and Fracture are also going to be shown at the viewing.
