Anybody know the reason why...

you can only play the demo if you have Xbox Gold? It sure as hell isn't because of the multiplayer, because I can see Gears of War Judgement multiplayer demo is up and I could download it if I wanted. Really doesn't make any sense why they would do that... or is it just temporary?!?!

14 days gold trials do not work either, I am getting the game either way, but i'd still like to try it before I buy it.

Because corporate greed, no other real reason technically. Never understood Microsoft holding back basic things if you didn't have gold, like Netflix. But yeah, I am pretty sure I'm getting it too, because even when the MK9 demo scared me away with weirdly half baked movements/animations , it shipped perfectly fine.

@bestusernameever: I wouldn't have known that with the MK9 demo since they didn't put on on XBLA, grrrr. It's MK9 all over again!

@casper_: MK9 launch when smooth for me, I believe online was a nightmare. But I have yet to even try to play an online match in MK9.

Are you just noticing this now? It's been this way since the beginning of the Xbox 360.

Actually yeah I believe so. Even still though, I remember it launching in way better shape than the demo, that thing seriously made me consider buying mk9 at first.
