Rebellion Apologizes for PS3 Demo Issues

February 9, 2010 Written by Kyle P.

Last week’s Aliens vs Predator mutliplayer demo brought with it a slew of problems for PS3 owners. The issues generally dealt with matchmaking and getting into games. With the PC version also experiencing similar bugs, Rebellion recently apologized for the issues, and promised to deal with them.

What’s strange about this issue is that the Xbox 360 demo has had very little complaints. In any case, the following is Rebellion’s official response and apology for this issue.

The full game features the ability to browse for and create games but for the purposes of simplicity the demo was limited to matchmaking, alongside the ability to set up groups with friends which mitigated yesterday’s issues for many.

We’re really sorry that this issue tainted a day in which we saw many people get hands-on with AVP for the first time and we’re hugely gratified by the positive feedback to the game.

For now, it seems like the best solution for PC or PS3 owners is to create local games; avoiding matchmaking all together. The game hits store shelves
