Yea its weird. It was automatically in my game library and then it did some weird conversion thing. Then restarting Steam made it work.@Kidavenger: Check your game library.

I already have it on Vita, and I'm going to buy it again on Steam. The game is so good!

Is this demo really 16MB? REALLY?

Madness. Also, now wish I hadn't bought the PS3 game (which I've barely touched) for £15 a few weeks back before this was announced...

That version is 1080p native right? Because, if so, the steam version becomes less tempting.

I may buy this and throw it on my TV and play it with a controller.

Am I going crazy or does this demo not seem to support controllers? I went through the options and could not find it anywhere.

 The conversion thing is usually what happens when you pre-load a game. I can't imagine why it would happen for a demo that wasn't even pre-loaded.

Wow, not seeing logo on the store page either. That's a total deal breaker. Yes I realize joytokey would probably work, but it's the principle of the thing. It's why I'm not buying Mass Effect 3 for PC either.

@Ne0teric: It's still downloading. But as far as the importance of controllers goes, both Mass Effect and Rayman Origins are what I would call "couch games". They're ones I'd wanna spend most of my time with while leaning back sunken deep into the sofa rather than hunched forward over a keyboard in front of a desk. I bought ME2 on PC and couldn't get into it due to my posture and having to use the monitor at my desk, regardless of how smoothly it ran. There is the rare occasion where I would give up the higher framerate and resolution for a more physically comfortable gaming experience.

@MrKlorox: I agree for the most part about being comfortable when it comes to games like Rayman, although for what it's worth Mass Effect is much better with M/KB, although that is another discussion for another time.

Just so that people are aware, the PC version does instead have controller support. I just downloaded the demo earlier and it recognized my 360 controller right away.

Really? I had my ps3 controller plugged in using DS3 tool to emulate a 360 controller, and it was not recognized at all. Maybe I will try an actual 360 controller next.

Yeah it recognized both my wireless 360 controller and my Razer Onza.

Also, I'm glad it supports 4-play local coop on the PC version, though it's unlikely many people will play it that way on the PC.

That's understandable, but have you tried the Rayman demo yet? I tried the demo for ME3 on PC and Xbox. 60fps alone sold me on the PC version.

Isn't the PS3 version already native 1080p at 60FPS? I've heard conflicting reports in that regard.
