No Test Drive for Driver PCBy Kyle Mann | August 9, 2011 | News | 2 comments | Share
Don’t you hate dropping big bucks on a PC game only to find out it doesn’t get along with your system? Situations like this come with the territory, of course, but demos have always been around to let us try before we buy. Sadly, this won’t be the case for Driver: San Francisco. Ubisoft will be releasing a Driver demo for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on Wednesday, but the French company has decided to leave PC gamers in the dust this time. When PC gaming site Rock Paper Shotgun asked Ubisoft for some sort of explanation for this bewildering move, they were told, “We have no information on any PC demo planned.” Well then.
Whatever the real reason, PC gamers will have to try out the demo on a console if they want the game that badly. Of course, with Ubisoft’s asinine always-on DRM, we may be better off going with the console version this time around. Or, alternatively, skip the game altogether. Driver: San Francisco is set to arrive on September 6, 2011 in the United States. European drivers will get their set of keys four days earlier.
