Driver Demo on PSN and XBL, Nothing for PC

By Yaris Gutierrez

August 10, 2011

If you’re an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 owner, and an avid fan of driving games, you will be treated to two new succulent demos of Driver: San Francisco fairly soon. A single-play demo was released yesterday, with a multiplayer demo expected to hit your online network of choice next Tuesday. If you’re a PC gamer looking to put your pedal to the metal with some Driver action,  you’ll be pursing your lips and shaking your head in disappointment.

Ubisoft has stated to Rock Paper Shotgun that “There are no current plants for a PC demo.” Kind of adding salt to an open wound, if you ask me. For those of you who aren’t aware with what’s going on, PC users will be treated to Ubisoft’s constantly-connected DRM system in order to play the game. If PC gamers were angry before, not having access to a demo will undoubtedly cause aneurysms.

Driver: San Francisco will be launching in North American on September 6, with a European release date of September 2.
