Duke Nukem Forever coming to Onlive; demo release nears?

With Duke Nukem Forever just a month or so away from its release, the marketing machine for the long awaited first person shooter is heading into high gear. First OnLive announced today that the game from developer Gearbox Software and publisher 2K Games will be made available on the streaming game service on the same day that the game is released in the US on June 14. In addition, OnLive is offering people who pre-order Duke Nukem Forever on the service a credit to receive a free OnLive Microconsole (a $99 value) or credit to get a free game on the OnLive service.

Meanwhile there's talk on the Internet that the promised playable demo for Duke Nukem Forever is getting ready to be released soon. This week, people who were registered for the game's First Access service got an email asking people for their preferred game platform (Xbox 360, PS3 or PC) to receive the demo. That choice must be given by May 15 which may indicate that the demo could be released sometime next week.

Finally, if you are going to be in Dallas, Texas area on June 11, just three days before Duke Nukem Forever's release, you might want to register at Gearbox's web site to attend Gearbox's Community Day. To be held at the Palladium Ballroom, the event will feature playable versions of Duke Nukem Forever and Gearbox promises that it will offer "the first public unveiling of never-before-seen materials by Gearbox." Oh, and it's free to attend.

hopefully this demo is out soon.

it's about the only PC game i got to look forward to into the foreseeable future.

and it's requirements are fairly low it seems which is good because my PC's CPU is definitely on lower end side.

I forgot about the First Access Club. I used my code to sign up. And yea, hopefully PSN is up so I could download the demo if it's being released real soon.

You should have gotten a super secret exclusive email yesterday about it

What it stated was, please go to our website and make sure your platform of choice is selected correctly. You have until May 15th to do this. This is to make sure that the demo code you get is for the correct platform. so maybe 2 weeks at the most.... DAMN IT PSN!

I'm going to be one big sad panda if PSN isn't up by the time the early demo is released for those of us who bought Borderlands GoTY edition.... Been waiting for this for so long, and looks like I'm going to get one final " haha sucka!" from this game before it actually comes out lol.

Just might have to drive those 2 hours to go down there.. give me something to do that weekend. Also, i guess this means the game is finally coming out!
