I'm pretty sure you don't have to pay.
The demos for Legend and Anniversary were free as well and I can't remember a demo that I had to pay for ;-)

Woops. I read this news, but never saw "Tuesday" in it. I thought it just said: "Next week"

I should go to the eye doctor :ouch:

Quite all right, as I do believe the official date was added but of yesterday or the day before, [hehe] . From speculation, I heard that the demo features Lara in the Underworld outfit with shorts opposed to the one with pants. Her weapon cache will be her dual pistols and tranquilizer gun, and the demo features the first ten minutes or so of the Thailand level, although I do believe it will be shorter, since you can show a lot in ten minutes.

The article I've read only talked about the demo for the Xbox 360. What about the demo for the PC? Any idea about a release date for the demo ( PC )? Surely that couldn't be too far off ? :sun:

I've read from some other websites, that the demo for PC would come on the same day....

Indeed. No doubt that the official Tomb Raider website will host a download link for PC gamers, and I know Xbox will put it up straight away, and will no doubt have an advertisement on the X360 dashboard.

I hope that they will give an huge amount of bandwith or the server will overload.... I'm scared of sitting 5 days, just to get the demo ......

Great news indeed. :thumbs:
I'm sure there will be plenty of mirror sites to help us with the demand for downloading the demo.
Wouldn't you just hate if you'd still be on dial-up! :D

You have no idea how disappointed I was when I read that line :up: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Does Eidos really think that X-box 360 owners are the only ones waiting to experience Tr Underworld ????? :shout
I've got news for you Eidos. There are PC's out there and PS 3's and Nintendo's as well. Don't we account for anything ? After all it is us PC and PS players that made up the numbers from the very beginning so we want to be treated fairly and have our share. :poke:
Sorry guys, had to let off some steam . :mad:
