Crackdown 2 Demo Now Live – Get a Head Start On Your Cheves!

The anticipated demo for Crackdown 2 has hit Xbox Live as of today.  The best part about this 1GB demo is that you can work towards achievements!  How awesome is that?  I’m about to pre-order the game just to reward that decision.  Basically, if you pick up a copy of Crackdown 2 on 7/8, any progress you made in the demo towards achievements will carry over to the full retail version and unlock once you pop in the disc.

This could be one of the greatest promotions ever!  How can you not want to download this demo?  I hate doing work for nothing, which is how I view most demos.  I enjoy demos and get why they’re released, but for the most part I’ll play them for a few minutes just to get a sense of the game and if it’s worth a purchase.  With the Crackdown 2 demo you now have incentives to keep playing it.  Brilliant!

That’s not all though.  There’s also a Facebook game tie-in that will provide you with in-game goodies once Crackdown 2 releases.  If you play Chuck’s Ducks you can earn Quackers, which are rubber ducky sticky bombs that you have to hunt down in the game otherwise.  Pretty cool!  I’m loving this promotion campaign, very engaging and rewarding.  You’ve been given a chance to work on cheves early…
