Ubisoft has just informed us (via Twitter) that we will see the demo for Tom Clancy’s new air combat franchise, H.A.W.X., in mid-February on the PSN. Ubisoft has been pretty faithful with putting up timely demos for the Tom Clancy franchise up on PSN, so we were happy to see this iteration getting the same treatment.


As for the details and specific content of the demo, Ubisoft “will communicate the exact date and content in the next few days” - sounds good to us!

Be sure to check out some of the video previews for the game (in glorious HD) on Ubisoft’s new video portal:

have received confirmation from SCEA that the PS3 demo for MLB 09 The Show is expected to be out tomorrow February 5th. Generally PSN updates at around 3pm PT. The demo is four innings long and features a rematch of the World Series with the Tampa Bay Rays at the Philadelphia Phillies. As mentioned in my community preview write-ups the demo is based on a month old build but it should be a fair representation of what to expect with the final product.

I’ll try to get up a few videos of the demo in the evening and point out some things that may have been fixed or improved upon in the near final build that I played last week vs what the demo offers. Also look for the second set of screenshots from the community preview event to be posted late tonight.

"Greetings from EA Sports! I'm Matt, lead designer for 3 on 3 NHL Arcade coming to PSN for PS3 tomorrow. As you might know, there are no options out there for consumers to play an Arcade style hockey game. There are Street versions of sports games, but Hockey has never been one of them and the NHL dev team felt that we could fill this void with a top quality product and give the users a game to enjoy. And PSN has it exclusively for the first week!

And, we want to turn people on about hockey - we truly believe it is the best sport on earth and want to show it off to people. So we built Arcade to attract people to play a hockey game when they might not usually play one. Also, it acts as a great creative outlet for our development team that has worked very hard on EA Sports NHL products."
