Yeah, its neat about the wristband, but my question is this... if employees - regular joe employees - get to play the demo, why do we have to wait till ****ing end of May to play the same exact thing?

I call BS on this, Sony. Loads of BS on you and your Naughty Dog friends.

It is just for them to better promote the game. A good chunk of them did not even know what genre the game is.

Well it's not like every employee at all gamestops everywhere got to play the game... Could be just an employee located near the Santa Monica based studio.

How about promoting it directly with PS3 owners aka the people who will ****ing pay for it? I hate how Gamestop employees get all the perks. You people have no idea how much swag publishers send them which actual customers never even get a glimpse of. I'd know because I worked at EB Games for 4 months.

EB hasn't kept these companies alive for decades, paying customers have.

Yeah, why would they let people employed in the gaming industry that help them make money and sell games as opposed to you, that's just.....ridiculous!

Why, the fact that the CEOs know more about PS4 than we do is absurd too!!

RAGERAGERAGERAGE

Seriously though, you going to complain that people from E3 have played it and not you as well?

Because Gamestop employees are rarely gamers anyways. Why not try to turn them into gamers? It's like passing a 12 year old his first cigarette.

Five bucks says they'll still ask if I want it for Xbox or PC.
