Any guess what section might be playable?

I don't know if I will download the demo if it's too big. I'm getting the game for sure so I don't have much need to try it out.

Awesome to hear there will be a demo. I have been on a media blackout on the game, but I am willing to have just a taste from the demo.

I can't wait for all the cancellation of pre-order announcements!

I look forward to it.

RPG demos never seem to work.
The second Type-0 demo was alright. The first one was sub-par. In general, RPG demos aren't very good, but if this lets you tinker with the system a bit (which is the only thing I'm interested in the game for), that's okay.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same demo from events like NYCC, GamesCom or E3, though. Did the battles in those demos have the same balance as the actual retail game, I wonder? Or were they more or less the same?

Yeah, that's a good point. Many a time I've played an RPG demo and disliked it, then played the full game and liked it. For example, I didn't like the demos of Tales of Vesperia and Eternal Sonata, but I really liked both of them once I played the full game

Will try this for sure. FF13-2 will be my first 60 dollar purchase of the year I think. Either this or The Old Republic.

I except the demo to be as on par as the FF13 one was.

I think I logged 6 hours with the Japanese Type 0 demo needless to say I enjoyed the experience.

Hopefully I will enjoy the FF13-2 one because I'm on the fence about even buying the game because of how busy I will be this semester.

That hard Behemoth at the end of the FFXIII demo? :lol

I was so disappointed that battle wasn't as difficult in the retail release, but then I remembered that I didn't have magic at that point like the demo did.

I remember liking the FFVIII and FFX demos a lot.

Could be a good idea, if they over ship and don't sell well out the gate it'd get slashed pretty fast. I was certainly going to wait for the £20 kind of area, but a demo could push me to day one.

Nice. I'm assuming NA, since its already out in Japan. Lol. Though I wonder where it'll be to avoid spoilers and stuff.
