Prey Demo Now Playable For PS4 And Xbox One
(Last Updated On: April 27, 2017)

While Prey itself is set to release across PC, PS4 and Xbox One, only the latter two platforms will receive the demo for unnamed reasons, which currently has a lot of people wondering if Bethesda and Arkane Studios are covering up a bad PC port. What is known is that everyone will be able to play Prey on May 5th, while a demo for PS4 and Xbox One is available right now.

Prey’s demo trailer for the “Opening Hour” is boasting a noticeable amount of dislikes, which comes in as no surprise given that only so many people can play or test the demo and not all of the fans across every platform.

Quite a bit of comments on Prey’s demo trailer are surfacing that may seem extreme to some but fair to others, as seen below.

As seen above, those comments were made within minutes and managed to garner some noticeable likes in that people are very leery about the PC port of Prey. Now I know some may say that only time will tell whether the PC port is good or not, but this could have a substantial impact on both Bethesda and Arkane Studios’ image.

I mean the game in general should perform well across PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but to exclude a certain platform and provide no rhyme or reason as to why there’s no demo for said platform has not only me, but many other gamers worried, too — worried that another Dishonored 2 conundrum could be right around the corner.

I know I’ve given this a lot of thought and it may come across as jacking on the game/devs, but this situation of no demo for PC is pretty much reinforcing that another Dishonored 2 case is imminent, because like with Doom, gamers and fans alike received a demo and Beta across all platforms — although that was id Software, we still have the same publisher behind Prey.

Anyway, the game is set to launch on May 5th for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The demo is only available for PS4 and Xbox One, which a trailer accompanying the “Opening Hour” demo comes in by Bethesda Softworks.

    It was alright, till getting the actual gun fighting enemies wasn’t really fun and the goo cannon is utter garbage imo but I fear the game will require me to use it a lot. Maybe someday but nothing I need right now, especially not for 60 bucks.

    Prey plays and feels a lot like DOOM 2016. It’s as if they used DOOM as a template and slightly changed Martian demons into purple nightmare aliens, and added on different weapons and abilities. The different types of weapons remind me of the Bioshock series the most, and that shrinking into a can really gives me Duke Nukem nostalgia.


    People take this “PC Master Race” shit way too fucking far. That’s part of the reason why I’ve stuck with console and haven’t ventured into PC gaming. I want my games to work right out of the box, and I don’t want to have to fool with graphics drivers, or mess around with PC settings just to get a game looking and running smooth. I’m a simple guy.

    • Actually… I can’t remember the last time I had to tweak a PC game’s settings (unless for modding purposes). Most of all of that is done automatically on boot-up. With Big Picture Mode it’s just a matter of finding the game you want to play and clicking “Play”. One and done.

      “That’s part of the reason why I’ve stuck with console and haven’t ventured into PC gaming.”

      Because you are an idiot? The pc master race thing is a inside joke creating by the console fanboys, the pc gamers took it at heart and circlejerked with it.

      ” I want my games to work right out of the box”

      Then why did you buy a next gen console, consoles are extremey complex right now with lots of shit that you have to config and updates to go through.

      “just to get a game looking and running smooth”

      Define “looking and running smooth” barely 30 fps and med high settings on a console is nor good looking or smooth. That can be achived on a old pc without much smoothing.

      I guess after all those years you are comfortable with what you are used to.

        So, now I’m a fucking idiot for preferring one way of gaming over another? That’s another thing that’s kept me from PC gaming. People are so goddamn arrogant. I don’t have an extra $1000 just laying around to build a half decent computer.

        • I don’t have an extra $1000 just laying around to build a half decent computer.

          Honestly? You can get a decent PC for $300. A PC that’s $450 – $500 will enable you to play 4K and VR games.

          • MONAD

            I’ve always preferred playing on a console rather than a PC. I’ve never had any kind issue with it other people have had. 30 FPS? Console updates? That shit doesn’t bother me near as much as it does other people. I’m a simple guy. I like simple solutions. I really don’t appreciate being called an idiot for my own personal preferences.

      saying that about modern consoles has to be a fucking joke, they have as many problems as PCs (in some cases even worse) without any of the advantages

      patching all the time, long install times, big download sizes, big install sizes, crashes, bad Q&A, OS problems, all sort of bad hardware problems, region locks, accounts, online connection requirements, devs locking sharing features, bad heating solutions, small harddisks, now you even have to upgrade every 2 years to the next marginal update

      “it just works”, ha

      while PCs have been getting better and better, Consoles have gotten worse and worse, thats an unavoidable fact

      • while PCs have been getting better and better, Consoles have gotten worse and worse, thats an unavoidable fact

        Yep, this is true.

      • Send in the Killer Clowns

        True that. I’ve been preaching/ranting the same thing but people keep denying it.

      • MusouTensei

        It shows that you don’t actually play on consoles and only parrot what others say, some like “big install sizes” or “big download sizes” aren’t even arguments at all, there is no way to reduce those, as games become more and more advanced their sizes of course will grow, how is that relevant to your point you failed to make? And region locks? What region locks? Even the Switch is region free.
        And why do I HAVE to upgrade every 2 years? That’s new to me.

        • LurkerJK

          Yes you can reduce download sizes, better use of compression, not downloading 4k textures when they are not needed and doing the same thing that consoles that did “just work” used to do: have a decent physical media

          For installs again, have a decent physical media, you won’t need to install, solid state storage is fast and could cost just a small portion of the game price in industrial production, you can work it if you want to

          But that’s too expensive? Well welcome to Pc land then, spend hours installing games that install in a few minutes on a PC, and when your cheap ass, slow ass hardrive is full after 4 games remember I can upgrade my PC all I want but console upgrading is very limited

          And about the update every two years, if you don’t know what I’m talking about you are just closing your eyes, the pro and the scorpio are heralding the era of the frequent updates, of course you can stay on you peasant vintage version and enjoy increasingly worse working games that use more and more of your diminute hardrive until the badly put together hardware red rings and sets your house on fire

          • MusouTensei

            Wow, you’re a fucking nutcase.

  • durka durka

    16gb ram reccomended…dafuq they smoking?

    • AgentBJ09

      That’s what happens when these devs refuse to consider lower specs and adjust for them, or optimize their games. As such, I’m just waiting for Arkane to botch the launch or buyers to notice issues they kept under wraps.
