God of War III demo “unlikely” for pre-Christmas pack

All that talk of a God of War III demo being included in the pre-Christmas God of War I and II pack looks to be hocum.

“That is unlikely at this juncture,” John Hight, dev boss at Sony’s Santa Monica Studio, told IGN.

“First and foremost, we want to be able to have this available for this holiday, and we don’t have a demo available yet that we feel is release-ready.

“I know a lot of people played the E3 demo and dug it and everything but, as far as our standards, it’s not ready to go into everybody’s home. So we wouldn’t want to hinder our efforts to get God of War 1 and 2 out.

“We felt like the fans were pretty outspoken as far as, ‘Man, I want to play now,’ and, “I want to play this Christmas,’ so we put the emphasis on that.”

So there you go.
