Pacific Rift Demo Confirmed, "Lucky Few" Get It This Week?

October seems to be loaded with borderline blockbusters; they may not carry titles like Resistance, but they're gonna be pretty damn popular nonetheless. One of these games is the sequel to last year's solid off-road racer, MotorStorm.

It's called MotorStorm: Pacific Rift, it's scheduled to arrive on October 7, and it's not surprising to learn that a playable demo will hit the PlayStation Store about a week before the game releases. However, according to ThreeSpeech, a few very lucky users will be able to play this promising racer well before that. It seems that several PS3 users will be selected "at random," and they will receive a special e-mail with a voucher code to download the demo this Thursday. Everyone else will get a shot at it "next month," of course, but this VIP-like e-mail allows players to go eyes-on and hands-on before most other PS3 owners, so...you should feel all sorts of special if you get picked. No, really. This is nothing more than a rumor at this point in time, and we're wondering if the selection process will truly be random, but it's something to hope for this week.

Perhaps the official PlayStation blog will confirm what the semi-official PlayStation blog has to say, and we'll be set to go. If that happens, you should start checking your inboxes to see if you've been chosen to play MotorStorm: Pacific Rift before the vast majority of gamers out there.

Well, the "premier" demo will be available next thursady 11 trough Qore. And a month after the demo will be available for everyone.

So I think it's possible to choose some non Qore subscribers to get the demo

Oh Motorstorm,so innovative,i expect you to fully take the "fun-factor" crown because all these other racing games r all the same ol'.I expect Pacific Rift to be a system-seller since gran turismo is no longer doin the job at least for now till gt 5 come out.After playin Motorstorm i didn't enjoy Dirt n Burnout Paradise

Yeah Gran Turismo and Motorstorm happen to be my favorite racing games.

Own every Gran Turismo to date.
Love GT5P but it's more of a beta than anything

Same here Scarecrow. Though the drifting modes surprisingly addictive and I'm still playing it. Can't wait for damage modeling.

Deffinaty getting this game. Has anyone played Pure? I did yesterday, and while it isnt as good as Motor Storm, it was pretty solid.

pure was good, but i don't really like the idea of having to focus on doing tricks the whole time.the game ran great, i would just prefer a road rash style game i think.

I thought the first Motorstorm was ok, but then again I suck at racing games so it's probably why I'm not the biggest fan. However, the way this game is shaping up, I might just live through the frustration and buy it, haha. The sequal really looks amazing!

went on the beta/demo today and it was good playing split screen, can be distracting watching your mate and then crashing, the game is good though. Only thing is that the graphics didn't seem as good on the surface which may have been because it wasn't finished (this was a copy they had been touring for a month or 2)

cool thing was that they interviewed me for a promo :D
