As your aware the current AVP Demo has issues with finding others to play with other than friends you invite. SEGA and Rebellion has put up a updated version of the demo. So you will need to delete your demo and download the new one. If you boot up the demo and get this image, you have the old demo.

SEGA and Rebellion can confirm that a new updated version of the Aliens vs Predator demo is available now on PlayStation Network. The first iteration of the Aliens vs Predator multiplayer demo has now been taken down from PlayStation Network and replaced with this new version.

The first iteration of the demo suffered matchmaking problems resulting in some players experiencing difficulties getting into matches. SEGA and Rebellion have worked closely with Sony to investigate and resolve the issue with this new demo. The new demo also features additional functionality to allow PlayStation 3 users to create their own matches and browse for any available ones to join.

“We are confident that the matchmaking issue has been fixed with this new demo and we will be monitoring community activity closely over the coming days to ensure that it has been fully resolved. We would like to thank the community for all of their valuable feedback and continued patience,” said Gary Knight, European Marketing Director of SEGA Europe.

Rebellion would also like to clarify the reasoning behind the choice of a Deathmatch multiplayer demo for Aliens vs Predator.

“We chose Deathmatch as the mode for the demo as it’s very familiar to all FPS gamers and minimizes restrictions on players while they are getting to grips with the controls of each of the three playable species” said Jason Kingsley, CEO and co-founder of Rebellion. “We have plenty of new modes in the game and players only have to wait a matter of days before they can play them when the game launches.”

    I’d have been horrified if they didn’t, given that a demo is essentially useless if it becomes a massive hassle just to play it.

    Personally i wouldnt change, You’ve got the model everyone wants, The slim for me looks cheap, The 60gb Ps3 is the daddy, If you go to any online shop you can get a 500gb hdd for about £50 – £70.

    It’s no MW2 but it is fun. I’m most excited for the Infestation, Survivor and Preadtor Hunt multi-player modes.

    glad they fixed it. Finally downloaded it today and it was nice being able to browse the different rooms. I wish there would have been a way to block out rooms already in a game though, or, at least, something that tells you. Was having fun with the alien again, and I finally figured out how to change species lol. Got 2 seconds in as predator, and the host left the game haha

    I didnt like the MP. I was playin as the predator and it was so easy to kill everyone else. I had as least 27 kills before the host bailed. This demo is sucks.
