    First I couldn't get early access to the FOC demo because of some kind of screw up with Gamestop. (I wasn't given an access code and it wasn't in my digital locker or email) Now I STILL can't access the demo for unknown reasons. I log on to XBox live, go to the games marketplace, click on the pic of FOC and it takes me to where you would normally be able to download a demo but all I can do is rate it and look at the picture gallery. At first I thought it was the fact that my XBL gold has lapsed but I can download other game demos. WHAT THE HELL IS GOIN' ON HERE! I WANT TO PLAY FOC! Please help!

    You have to be a gold member to get access to the demo right now. I am not sure how long you have to wait as a silver member, but I think it silver members get the demo after the game launches.

    Silver members have access to older demos, but only Gold members can access new demos.

    Gold members, silver members. Xbox is so specific.

    Thank you very much, that worked. You know if they had've just made it where I could've clicked on "get trail" and had a window pop up saying "you must be a gold member to access demo" I would've that sooner.

    Yeah usually silver members have to wait at least a week. I'm not sure how this one will work since half the demo (MP) wouldn't be accessible to silver members anyway. Will they release just a campaign demo? I'm guessing it will just say you can't access the MP portion if you try to select it at the menu. Guess we'll find out next week.....maybe.

    I don’t remember off hand which games, but I seem to remember that there have been some in the past that will have the demo available only until the game releases (or shortly thereafter). I don’t understand why, since the demo should entice people to buy the full game, why take it down? I am not somewhere that I can check on my Xbox for the FoC demo otherwise I would see if that was the case. I don't remember WFC's demo ever being taken down.
