This is the discussion thread for a recent post on GTPlanet:

I wasn't around for pre-release campaign, as I was working at Konami at the time.The pre-release marketing campaign for DR 2.0 was pretty bad as well.
What specifically was "bad" about it? Might be good to know for future reference.
Seems like a last resort attempt to impose this game on the masses. It's for the most part a great racing title that kind of flew under the radar, which is Codemasters own fault for having polluted the franchise with inferior products like DiRT 4. The pre-release marketing campaign for DR 2.0 was pretty bad as well. Hopefully this move will work as an eye-opener to more players.
It didn't showcase that many cars and the action scenes were too brownish and gritty.
How is a game that is "free to download" being "imposed on the masses" exactly? Are you being forced to download all free PSN games? Blink twice if you are being held against your will.
I mean...the game literally has the name DIRT in the title. So the complaint is that the original announcement trailer failed to make the dirt look less dull? The scenes were too "brownish and gritty"? I have to admit, that is one complaint I never ever expected to read.
Why are you suggesting the base game is a demo? There's plenty of content and things to do. It's taken me probaly 60 hours to get the platinum so that isn't demo. You can actually play the DLC locations m by joining someone who does own it onlineIt's only so the Codies can flog the DLC.
But hey, the demo version is well worth downloading if it's free on PS Plus.
I think killzone shadow fall will be comming soon.. Just a feeling..Has to be one of the best month on PS+ ever. Wonder if we see more games added like these, since next gen is on the horizon.
In the interest of saving time downloading dirt 2 when it's released on ps plus, if I download the dirt 2 demo do you think that will not need to down load the dirt 2 full game when it's released.
WOW good enough rational, I will download tonight.I was wondering the exact same thing! The demo is like a 70+gb download, so it must be the full game?
I asked Dirt, Codemasters and Ask PlayStation on Twitter...
"@Codemasters @dirtgame @AskPS_UK If I download the demo of Dirt Rally 2.0 onto my PS4 now, does that mean I won't have to download anything extra on Tuesday when it releases on PS+?"
Got a reply on Twitter from @dirtgame...
"In theory, no.
The Trial Version is the full game but with most of it locked away.
If that unlocks when PS+ then it's essentially a preload now for you.
You should download the Trial anyway and get practicing "
Can’t find the demo in the UK PS Store
