The preview code was only given out to certain people AFAIK, not a wide release. As it was leaked, it was not appreciated.

soory then i didn t knew rthat
i only thought it would be cool just to see a preview of this wipeout
i do not promote the piracy but a demo is not illegal ( that s just my point of view maybe i m wrong )

it`s not a demo. It`s preview code which was never meant to be supplied to anyone except games journalists and those on a strictly controlled list. It is illegal to distribute this - it`s not your property and you have no right to do so. So please delete that link before someone else does.

Yeah where the problem lies is it wasnt actually a "demo" as such mate... A demo is obviously released with the intention of general public consumption... this release was early preview code intended for a select few journalists and the like to get an early insight into how the game is shaping up.

If it was an actual demo strictly speaking there wouldn't be a problem because as I said, the intention would have been there for it to get out there to the public. With this release, that wasn't the case and that is where the distinction is made between "demo" and "preview code".

Hope this makes it clearer.

This ISN'T a demo though, Demo's are usually based on the final build, but with features removed. The preview is closer to a beta, with features still unfinished or completely missing. It is very probable that the distribution of the preview is affecting sails, for example, 'casual' gamers (See: not nutters ;)), may play the preview thinking it's a demo representing the final product, and could very well be turned off the game.

The reason it's distributed to professional journalists only is because they have a professional eye, they can identify the parts that represent the final product and post an objective preview.

Sony has been very good lately, in regards to releasing demo's for its 'high profile' games. I'm sure there will be an official demo, and if we're lucky, it might even be as early as the end of august.
