The DR3 demo is in the process of rolling out. If it’s “Unavailable”- try again later. It will be available in all regions the game is sold

It appears in the game store for me, but it's listed as "Unavailable."

*facepalm*



I get the same message too. Also, there appears to be no way to download the demo without using the Xbox One. Not even on Xbox.com?

It's 7.09 GB too.

Xbox One Smartglass apps can be used to purchase games. I assume they work for demos as well. You can also use the search function to pull up "game demos" to see all available demos. They need a separate section of the store or a notice on the game page, but this is a workaround for now.

How will we be a me to delete demos since HDD space is going to be invaluable and there isn't any tools to manually manage storage space on the bone?

Just go to select the demo, press the menu button, and there should be an option to uninstall.

The only thing you can't do is see the available storage. You can delete anything you want right now.

For what its worth, Dead Rising 3 is easily the best launch title. If you haven't tried it, give it a chance. Its a lot of fun.

Ryse demo will do wonders. The game is repetitive, but with a demo you won't notice that.

Do it MS.

Thank god for this.

My biggest complaint with the Xbox One so far is the relative lack of demos.

I'm enjoying the hell out of my 4 games, but there are other titles I'm on the fence about and the lack of demos isn't helping matters. This is one of the games I'm least likely to get just bcthe subject matter is a bit played out for me.

At this rate I'm not gonna get anything else until Titanfall.

DR3 is a ton of fun, and a must-buy if you own a bone. This demo will hopefully sway those on the fence.

I'm certainly behind the times here, but it's disappointing to hear demos aren't mandatory like they were on the 360. That was one of my favorite things about last gen.

There was supposed to be a 360 DR3, what ever happened to that?
There was never a 360 DR3

http://www.oxm.co.uk/65891/dead-rising-3-not-possible-on-current-gen-capcom-hit-the-ceiling-during-prototyping/

Jones has clarified his earlier comments in a statement to OXM - apparently, Dead Rising 3 was never formally prototyped on Xbox 360. "The goals we set ourselves for Dead Rising 3 were just not possible on the current systems. We knew it would have to be a next-gen game and Microsoft was supportive of the idea."

It is disappointing that demos and leaderboards are no longer mandatory for downloadable titles (since XBLA no longer exists), but that never would've applied to DR3 anyway
