I have both systems, but it seemed to me by reading the posts here that most people had a 360. Besides, normally for multi-platform games ps3 version has more flaws etc. than the 360 ones. Sorry you feel that way, but it will be out soon enough :P

The only reason the 360 games are sometimes better is because the developers are to lazy to make a good port. The ps3 version could easily be better than the 360 version graphically. Just play Uncharted 2. :BOT:

Downloaded it. Played it. "Beat it". By "beat it" I mean I maxed out both my characters.

It's a really fun game! Can't wait for the full version to come out! :grin:

ok just got off playing the game lol.

a few things I wanna say about the game. graphic-wise, it's great! I'm playing on a 55" led tv w/1080p and it's pretty darn good. it does look a little brittly but it's really good and i'm sure that the ps3 version would look more smoother.

as far as for audio, it's not bad.. only thing bugs me is the commentator sounds like the governator of CA which i think it's hilarious, but at the same time annoying. i don't think that was cullen's voice, and if it was, they should fix it (which i think won't happen since most likely the game's already been produced.) but maybe an update!

and gameplay-wise, it's freaking AMAZING! the perks and killstreaks does remind me of COD, but it's actually easier to achieve them compared to other games, so for kids, they will have a lot of fun playing it! but as far as for hardcore gamers, it should be a piece of cake although i think some weapons are meh like for example, the sniper gun's not as accurate and the shotgun's not as powerful.
i was able to level up from 1 to 3 in one match and was able to get the highest points and kills and i'm just an average gamer so i think this game's gonna make a lot of people happy. i just hope the hardcore guys don't ruin it for the kids and the fans lol #-o

and as far as the whole xbox & ps3 debate, i just think xbox has the advantage due to subscription fee that's why they get most the demos and download content first than ps3. it's most likely because they pay the company to make it exclusive and early (ie cod mw2 expansion). but that's all gonna change one ps3 starts their premium service which most likely gonna end up into a bidding war as far as game demos, dlc, etc.

but nonetheless, it's a definite buy for me! so for the xbl users i'll be seeing you guys there! i'm still contemplating which system i wanna get it for, but for now i'll be stuck playing the demo on xbox. anyways, enough blabber :P

For those of you that pre-ordered, where did you do so? Gamestop has Shockwave, Amazon has Demolisher, and Best Buy has Red Alert, right? I am leaning towards Shockwave, even though I try to avoid Gamestop at all costs.

First off This demo has made me want to own this game even more. Wonderful gameplay mechanics, I do agree with an earlier post about the sniper rifles and shotguns, but it doesn't ruin the game. It's very fluid and doesn't feel slow at all. I wish they could've included more customization but that's ok. Can't wait til June 22nd.....cause Ultra Magnus will be reigning supreme!!!!!

Actually, Best Buy has Jazz, not Red Alert.

I pre-ordered at Gamestop, even though like you I try to avoid them, but that's mainly because they're the only ones in Canada offering any of the pre-order bonuses.

I preordered mine from Gamestop, so I'll be getting Shockwave.

I've been spending my day off before starting my new job tomorrow parked on the couch in front of the TV playing the WFC demo. I love it, so much fun. The graphics are fantastic, and it's nice to actually be on Cybertron. Glad I have this to hold me over until the game is released!

So, what makes you say that? Just because you chose one over the other and don't like their decisions? As someone who owns both, I can say freely that the PS3 is not superior. Don't get me wrong, I love both of my systems, and when it comes to single player games and graphics, the PS3 usually comes out on top, but with the money that you have to pay for the gold subscription, the online play and the operating system on the 360 is sooooooooooo much better. Also, they only did it on one system for a reason, its because they only had time to do one demo to focus on the actual game, and with more people being active online on live usually, that makes it the more obvious choice it seems. Also, as someone else stated earlier, with the gold cost, it also gives microsoft more money to bid on exclusives. So don't automatically say things to be negative to people.

Im glad some one understands how f*king mad I am. How much I want to buy the shitbox just so I can break it and send it back to them in a PS3 box. Im so f*kin pissed right now, that Im actually temped not to buy the game when it comes out. This just really REALLY pisses me off that theyd go out of their way and not give us PS3 owners a demo, now we have to wait 2 more weeks to play while others are already playing. This is BS. I am so mad right now I want to blow up a freking Xbox.

I know people who have been through 8 of those Xboxes already! And you have to pay just to get f*king internet, when you can get it on the PS3 for free! Why would the Failbox be so much better when you have to pay for everything? Xbox exclusives are fail too. What do they have? Gears of War and Halo, thats it, punk-ass 360.

they went out of their way to not give you a demo? I'm fairly certain it takes less work to not put a demo out for a game than it does to actually make one available. I'm sorry you bought the better console and are so awesome because you chose it, but you're getting too worked up. Yeah, it sucks. I'm always unhappy when there's things exclusive to one console or the other (oh MGS4 how I miss you!) but as plenty of people have said, it's very likely Microsoft paid some of the Gold Subscription money to secure an exclusive demo.

But, hey, if you want to, go buy an XBox, some fireworks and blow it all to hell. I'm sure MS won't mind.

LOL! Im just mad that I have to wait 2 weeks to get a feel for the game. The only person that I know with a 360 is my cousin, but he lives 2 hours away, and I doubt he has an Xbox live on his anyway. I never seen him on it.

Well, they just got some bad hardware it seems. And yes, you do have to pay for quality. That seems to be the case with most things in the world. The internet connections and the way it is supported is what makes xbox live much better than the PSN. Also, cross-game chat. That seems to be something that sony can't seem to put a finger on. I've actually sat with both consoles on, playing my ps3 while having my headset on for my 360 just so I could chat with friends. And yes, they have Halo and Gears, and some others, but it is better than most anything the playstation can come up with, in terms of sheer numbers at least.

I've owned both a PS3 and a 360, in fact, i'm doing this reply on my PS3 right now. My 360 has crashed twice, and i do not feel like getting it fixed now after getting my PS3. But onto the topic, where has everyone seen that this demo is 360 exclusive? I have not seen anything of the sort, the video interview last week that first(at least posted here) mentioned a demo said nothing of it being exclusive. So no offense, but until i see an article or something that says it's an exclusive, i will very well expect the demo to pop up Tuesday on the PSN update.

:Edit: Hopped on the computer and googled, only 2 articles on the first page mentioned it being exclusive, but gave the source, and that's why i never heard it, since it was with that guy from Xbox, and i don't keep up with Xbox stuff anymore since mine died again 4 months ago.

Just watched the video kindly posted above.

It seems to me that the bots are fiddly to control and the enviroments arnt that easy to navigate and possibly arnt ideally suited to transformers alt modes.

Looking forward to getting my hands on the PS3 version but unless there are any proper online co-op modes ( I dont mean capture the flag etc ) then I think I will leave the multiplayer alone.

Try this one instead, it not only has more footage to it, but the player is better as well. In the other video, the player wasn't very good, but this player begs to differ.

Played the Demo, leveled both classes up to 3 (max for now). They let you sample the weapons and Scout / Car and the Soldier / Tank classes. You unlock some abilities so you can see what you're getting into with them. Good balance so far, fun game. Pre-ordered it, and can't wait.

Hey UltraPrimal, sad that we had to wait for months to see only one Pre-Order Character made it up here when the USA had the 3 of them announced in February, eh? I even asked a buddy who works at GameStop, and no one in Canada knew until mid-May.

Still, I'd have gone with Shockwave anyway, so I can't complain at all. Go Canadian Decepticons!

yeah it's much easier to get killstreaks on this game but you can't use it on the demo :-x

but like i said about the whole xbox/ps3 debate. most likely the reason why 360 got it first was because they had to money to bid on it. and that's one of the things that makes the subscription fee worth it.

as far as for ps3, if you guys haven't not heard/read articles online, ps3 will have a premium service that requires subscription fee sometime this year. so there you go for that, it'll make things even with xbox now. i mean don't get me wrong, ps3 has better graphics but the things that you can do on xbox is a lot smoother.

if it makes you guys feel better, i read it on ps3's website that ps3's will have an update that will let you play 3d blurays. and sterescopic 3d gaming's already out today! so that's a couple of things ps3 will have an advantage on.. if you have a 3d hdtv :P

anyways, i've come up with another glitch on the game, i noticed that when the server times out or you get disconnected from the game, you don't get the exp pts that you earn from that match. they should fix that or else that's another one way to throw your controller and end up breaking some of your collection #-o

Not really. I wouldn't pay $70 some to get the MW2 maps a month early, when i could wait a month and get them on the PS3 and only pay $15 for them and the ability to actually play those maps. Plus it depends on how much Online playable DLC you plan on purchasing. I've never really seen an advantage at all with paying for a gold subscription. I've had a few month passes, and from what i played on XBL, it doesn't seem to be all that much more mighty than PSN.

and the PS3 pay features are only premiums(like possible cross game chat), online play will still be free.

yeah you're right for ps3's online play to still be free, but from what they've mentioned they're doing exclusive premium contents which is going to be like xbox. i mean all in all eventually both platforms will end up costing the same, the thing that will cause a problem is when they make exclusive things on one platform and not for the other. and for those IMPATIENT people, they will just get pissed, as we can see on this topic lol. so i guess for patient people and/or people that have both systems, is not really as big of a deal compared to people that doesn't have multi systems 8-}

hey we're a community here so we're basically a one big family (despite the arguments and what not lol). I'm actually comtemplating about which system i wanna get it for, but i noticed something!

xbox says online multiplayer is up to 10 people http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/t/transformerswfc

while ps3 on the other hand says it's only up to 8 http://us.playstation.com/games-and-media/games/transformers-war-for-cybertron-ps3.html

i tried using other sources like transformersgame, gamefaqs, gamestop, bestbuy, etc and i didn't see any other ps3 version that's saying "2-10 players" so idk if this is true or not, but just a heads up for everyone!

idk if anyone have mentioned it or noticed it because i'm new here although i've been spying this site for almost a year lol 8)

but anyways, i'm most likely going for more online players so i'll probably be getting the xbox one (although i wish it had ps3's gfx). but at least i hope this helps for the people who couldn't decide which version to get :D

Maxed out both of my characters, so now I'm saving myself for the real thing.

Not too crazy about melee being the right stick, kinda awkward for me. Still, overall looks awesome

I felt the same way, shame you couldn't customize it. It caused quite a few deaths for me #-o

Or it could just be a misunderstanding one one the sites. Because i don't think they would have it at 4 a side in TDM or Conquest. My guess is on both systems it's either 10, or possibly 12 with 5 or 6 on each side.

I pre-ordered at Gamestop but the PC version doesn't offer free characters for pre-ordering (I think).

Im so f*kin pissed right now, that Im actually temped not to buy the game when it comes out. This just really REALLY pisses me off that theyd go out of their way and not give us PS3 owners a demo, now we have to wait 2 more weeks to play while others are already playing. This is BS. I am so mad right now I want to blow up a freking Xbox.


I know your pain. I'm a PC user and will have to wait...or not. My roomie has the Xbox subscription (both of them do actually) and I get to demo the game!! :KREMZEEK:
But don't take that meaning to rub it in your face. I do feel your pain. I hope no one steals my online tag (Blackstreak). He is so gonna be a scout.

well as far as i've read, a couple of sources xbox said it's up to 10, while ps3's site was the only one that was specific as far as how many players can play in one match which was 8.

so i guess the total that we can have no matter what is 10. i'm just expressing what i've noticed. i mean don't get me wrong, i would be pissed if i bought the ps3 version n it's only up to 8. well the pro about it though is would be less lag lol. but if they made it like other games like battlefield, the PC version might have even more! just imagine a 16vs16 tdm! i'd be all up for that!

but nonetheless, i just think the more the merrier! :KREMZEEK:

I was just on the game (as Blackstreak in the game, but on my roomie's account). And this is flat awesome!! :APPLAUSE:
I got one beef though. I was a freakin' Decepticon in all 3 matches I played. What is up with that?
:evil:
I hate supporting the enemy.

:BOT: all the way man!

Oh i know. I just said it could be a misunderstanding on someones part since 4-on-4 TDM doesn't sound too right for a game like this, no matter which platform it's on. And as we can see in the 360 demo videos it seems to be 5-on-5 TDM there, which i don't see any reason it wouldn't be the same on PS3. Actually though, i think some modes allow for bigger teams, so that could be where some misunderstanding/confusion came from on those max player numbers. Cause i think regular deathmatch(free-for-all) was supposed to be 8, while all the others were 10, with 5 on each side.

I didn't examine the peripherals. I logged in, created my character and went shootin'. I did gain xp and it looks like there were 3 slots for upgrades but I didn't play around with it. Was too excited to finally be on Cybertron.

Boo :CON: s!

@ RogueDeathangel the classes are scout, scientist, soldier, and leader. there isn't a tank class. the ones available on the demo are scout and soldier.

Don't even get me started on the XBOX 360/PS3 Fanboy debate. Honestly it all comes down to personal preference, what you want to do with the system (is it strictly gaming or will it be a multimedia entertainment hub) and what titles you enjoy. In the end I went with both, and got the kids the wii;) I don't want to miss a thing;)

Anyways, I got to sit down with it for about two hours total last night and this morning, and I'll say it's pretty good. There are a few quirks here and there, but I'm sure the full game and updates in the future should help those issues. My two biggest problems; the melee system and transforming. The melee system is a mess, from swinging and missing opponents by a mile, and Scouts being able to put down a Soldier with relative ease, I really hope that this is just a thing with the demo.

My other issue is accidentally transforming. I love how it's easily to transform back and forth... it's seamless, but that can become a problem in close quarters combat. I've gotten into a good brawl, just to unexpectedly transform in the middle and get curbstomped while trying to transform back.


But other than those issues, I've got no major complaints, and I'll be right there to pick up my copy at GameStop.

BTW my tag on XBL and PSN is: GDX76 for anyone interested in playing

You can do something about that in the full version, Matt said(i don't remember which one of the millions of interviews) you could switch the transform button to the Y/Triangle button
