Wheelman Demo Available Now Exclusively on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, Coming to PlayStation Network March 12th

Action-Packed Demo Showcases Wheelman’s Game Design Mechanics Including Cinematic Super Moves and Vehicular Combat.

SAN FRANCISCO - Today Ubisoft and Midway Newcastle announce that an official Wheelman demo is available now exclusively on the Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network at http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/w/wheelman/. The Wheelman demo will be available for download on the PlayStation®Network on March 12.

Combining spectacular Hollywood-style stunts with a gripping storyline, Wheelman provides an adrenaline-fueled, cinematic thrill ride. Vin Diesel stars as an undercover agent and highly skilled driver who must infiltrate the Barcelona underworld to gather intelligence surrounding a covert heist. Posing as a driver-for-hire, he ends up caught in a crossfire of corruption and chaos while trying to stay one step ahead of local law enforcement and rival gangs.

The Wheelman demo features a custom-made mission introducing the player to the special moves that only a master Wheelman can pull off. Spin into a Cyclone while precision shooting at enemies or leap from vehicle to vehicle at breathtaking speeds to AirJack your enemy’s car. Once the player has completed the custom-made mission they will unlock two side missions: ‘Made to Order’ and ‘Street Showdown.’ Each of these side missions will be playable three times before the demo finishes. While the finished game will allow you to freely roam a virtual version of Barcelona - the cultural capital of Europe - in an open-world environment, this demo has been created to highlight only a small section of the actual game world.

Wheelman is scheduled for a March 24, 2009 ship date in North America and a March 27, 2009, street date in Europe for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Windows-based PC.

    Now game systems are getting “exclusive” demos?

    I bet all the PlayStation 3 owners are so jealous of the Xbox 360 owners that are already playing this demo. :p
