Bulletstorm Demo is longer than we thought?

This is what Adrian Chmielarz, Creative Director at People Can Fly, retweeted today:
  

  

  Apparently it is. I hope someone figures out the step-by-step process of getting past the End Demo script soon. I want more skillshootin'!

Duuuuuude fucking rad. Can't wait to hear all the nay sayers not knowing what they're talking about start yelling nonsense about hacking or whatever. I didn't realize people can get so sensitive about fucking around with demos. Then again this could also be why some people have obscenely high scores. Someone needs to break this stat. 
 
Probably why there wasn't a PC version. It would have taken all of a day for someone to find all this extra goodness.

Could be if you play it enough times it unlocks by its self.

If a representative of People Can Fly retweeted it then that suggests to me that there is some legit way of getting this past just getting lucky and activitating the next chapter script.  
 
Either that or he just thought it was cool someone found this glitch.

 No it's not. When you hit the trigger that causes the start-of-Echo "dropshop" menu to appear, the number of skillpoints being counted towards the Echo is reset. You'll see that at the end of the second Echo, the guy's score is six-thousand something, despite starting with over ten-thousand.

I feel like this explains why the demo was over a gig. I don't remember demos being that big.

alot are but are much larger, I'll have to go redownload it if someone figures out how to do it (legit or otherwise) 
 
Maybe you can do the repeated opening and closing of the guide trick from the Just Cause 2 demo to prevent the script form activating (the end echo one).

I just played the demo today and I couldn't figure out how to do much. I only did like 5 skillshots. It doesn't seem like I'll like that game much.=/ Sadly.
