    I'll be trying it on PC and 360 for sure, and maybe even give it a whirl on PS3, although I figure the Xbox version will give me enough of a feel of the console controls. What are you guys gonna try it on?

    I'm most curious about the console versions and if combat feels significantly better or not.

    PC. I don't think I'll even bother with 360, having the chance to play it on PC.

    I'm most interested in the 360 version, so I'll try that first. Might also try running it on my Mac.

    Helpful. 
     
    Might just run it on Windows mode to try it out anyway. I have the 360 version on pre-order, so it was really only to sate my curiosity. 
     
    When the inevitable Ultimate Edition comes out, maybe.

    PC primarily, as that's the platform I'm getting the full game (Signature Edition, so excited!) on. But I'm very curious to see how it will control on the consoles, so I'll probably get the demo on all three.

    I just completed the demo on the 360 and I am not a happy bunny. I need to play the PC demo but so far I feel like they have changed too much.

    Finished the 360 demo... 
    I am not liking it. 
     
    Enemies feel like lifeless punching bags with a life bar.  
    Mashing the A button while waiting for cool downs makes that incredibly apparent. 
     
    I'll reserve my final judgement on the PC demo, but I'm not having high hopes.

    The 360, because it's already available. 
    The PC demo isn't up until later and the PS3 until tomorrow. 
     
    I'll likely download it again for the PC though, if the 360 demo doesn't give you the bonus items for all platforms.

    Hmm, gonna head home from work now, looks like not so great news so far on consoles. Still, I'll give it a try on 360 and then see when the PC version goes up.

    Because it is the console version and you know how most PC gamers are when it comes to that. You also hit buttons to do things I am guessing. I better stop talking shit though because I might not like the game too. I am downloading the demo now.

    Just finished the 360 demo. Only thing I have to say so far is, thank god that the full version is multilanguage, because the german synchro is freaking terrible.
     
    Probably gonna try the PC demo too, if it'll run on my slow poke PC that is...

    Anyone know if the Demo unlocks the bonus items for every version, or do I have to play it on both 360 and PC to unlock it on each system?

    Have to disagree with this, the combat feels far more tactile and interesting.  Even if you prefer the PC combat system, it was horrible for the consoles in the first game, so this is a vast improvement and the only real difference is that you're pressing A to attack, rather than auto-attacking and waiting for cool downs.  My only problem with the demo is that they once again seem to be trying to advertise it as a heavy game and showing as little of the RPG elements as possible.  It gives you no access to the inventory and repeatedly skips ahead to show MORE combat..  the part with Isabella seemed completely pointless. 
     
    The other major point is that there definitely are much fewer dialogue choices, so it feels like you're playing as a set role rather than a custom character (which we already knew anyway) but I think that's going to be the biggest divider.  Some people will prefer it this way and others will completely hate it.  I think it does make the character feel more dynamic, instead of the cardboard cut out you were playing in the first..  But I don't see why this was necessary.

    PC for definite, as that's where I played the last 2(origins and awakening), also decided I'm going to go with the PC for Deus Ex 3 when it finally drops.

    My profile lists nothing.  Perhaps because I was disconnected in the middle of playing though.

    I liked the demo on 360, but I wish you could use your inventory in demo too and few other things that is unavailable in demo. Anyway, demo left positive feeling of the game. I am going to try the demo on PC when it's available, but I don't think it will run on my laptop with high res.

    Sorry man just messing. Didn't mean for you to get all butt hurt about it. Like I said I need to stop talking shit because I haven't played the demo yet. Who knows I might be saying the same things after I am done.

    I'll be buying the game on the PC so I'll be playing the demo on the PC.  The PC version was the one I was most concerned about them wrecking so I'll need to see that the combat is still as good as it was in DA:O.

    I'm playing it on the 360 and I'm surprisingly intrigued by this version. I need to play the PC demo to decide whether I should buy it there or the 360 though. I bought the first game on the PC but I don't have the save anymore so it seems I'm in a situation where it wouldn't really matter story wise. 
     
    I'm mostly happy to hear the protagonist speak. Great voice actor for the male Hawke.

    I think they made it far to similar to the Mass Effect interface. I thought the menu system was better in origins. I played origins on Xbox, the xbox demo now, and all from the combat to the visuals didn't really do it for me.
