The packaging of the Facehuggers caused many of the tails to literally break off. I went through 3 packages before settling on one that was only torn, vs. completely broken off. According to SEGA, there are a “small amount” of damaged tails, however the gamestop I bought mine from had 4 of the 7 they received completely broken off, and 2 torn. SEGA has stepped up to the plate and is offering to replace any damaged facehuggers free of charge.
SEGA is solely responsible for replacing the damaged facehuggers. We would like to ask for gamers to NOT go to the original retailer where they purchased Aliens vs. Predator from for a replacement.
In order to make this replacement process as efficient as possible we ask that gamers go to www.sega.com/facehugger and follow the detailed instructions on the webpage or call 1-800-USA-SEGA to register themselves for a replacement facehugger. Once again there will be no charge of any kind for obtaining a replacement facehugger.
SEGA would like to apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our fans. We ask for their patience as we work quickly to replace the damaged facehuggers.
They are requiring the DLC code for the exclusive map pack as proof of purchase. There is also no mention of sending in the old one.
Looks like I’ll be getting a new one and might be able to keep the broken one. I’ll then post the pic of it on my face, even though it is a little small. The facehugger, not my face!
On a side note, the Pre-order codes have been reported to be working as of this morning.
I’ve already voice my concerns over the AVP Demo. If these have been addressed in the final game let me know. The single player campaign I’m sure will be amazing. It’s the MP that I’m not so sure about. Anyway, check out this cool launch trailer for AVP.
The Aliens vs. Predator pre-order and hunter edition codes for the PS3 are not currently working. Keep them as they are supposed to be fixed by the 25th. Sega released this statement on their blog:
SEGA has received reports of problems with the downloadable content (PDLC) for the PlayStation 3 version of Aliens vs. Predator. The reported issues center around a delay as to when the PDLC content will be available to access. SEGA is working hard to shorten the delay but understands that the live date will be February 25th.
We want to thank the AVP fans for their support and urge fans to retain the PDLC vouchers they have in their possession as retailers will not able to rectify this issue.
For further assistance please contact SEGA at [email protected] or directly by phone on 1-800-USA-SEGA
Dissapointing, but at least they are already working on it. I’ll be posting pics of the hunter edition face hugger, on my face, soon!
I know I’m late at getting this up, but I didn’t get a chance to really play the demo enough until yesterday. First off the predator only has 4 weapons?! Maybe he’ll have more in the full game, but I somehow doubt it. There are only 4 slots for weapons in the demo for the predator, marine too.
The Predator has 10 weapons in the old AVP 2 Primal Hunt version of the game. The video below shows off 8 of them. The 2 not showed in the video are the Energy Flechette & Self-Destruct. Which is as awesome as it sounds! Your health has to be at or below 10% in order to use it. Once you choose to Self-Destruct you start to do the classic Predator laugh and about 4 seconds later you explode. The blast from this is huge. If you don’t find something to hide behind your toast. Works best in open levels.
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.”

Aliens vs Predator is set for release on Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC Games For Windows on February 16th in America and February 19th in Europe.
