    Absolutely pathetic decision to have a maintenance on the store at the exact same time as a major demo is released.

    Seriously, someone actually deserves sacking for this. Only Sony could be this incompetent.

    It's not a maintenance, it's just about servers getting overloaded.

    Really? I had a "maintenance" message come up when trying to load the store up.

    Still, absolutely awful service from Sony.

    I was prompted to download a system update it's about done. Better not be maintainance. I'm in the US though, not sure if it makes a difference.

    My brother (staying round for the week) is on Xbox, he downloaded the demo within 20 minutes. I'm almost half way there after about 3 hours.

    Same internet connection, started around the same time...

    Do we know what cloud provider Sony uses? I know MS have their own (explaining why it works so much better). I know Amazon don't have anything to do with em in this regard (old job insider knowledge) but could go some way to explaining the difference in quality.

    Quick thoughts after a few matches.
    Beautiful beautiful and more beautiful.
    Ball physics are amazing. Player movement is much improved and they behave like real people lol. Thru balls and passing seem revamped and rather easy. I like the new set piece and corner revamp it's going to be a lot easier to score. I'm already a crossing **** so this suits me well. Honesly I'm really hard pressed to find many flaws but I'm sure that will come with the release version and online play. Just a fun and BEAUTIFUL game thus far but I've only played a few matches so I reserve the right to **** when I'm ready. This demo will definitely entertain me for the next few weeks.

    Fast players are FAST. Shielding is going to be abused.

    Fast players are FAST. Shielding is going to be abused.

    I've just played a couple of games so far and IMO fast players aren't that fast. Meaning, this is not a "pace abuse" fifa yet just like beginning of 16. Slower defenders can easily catch up with fast attackers with the ball. However, the game itself is a bit fast IMO if they can slow it even just a little, it would be better. It kind of feels like more arcade because of it.

    I would agree. Perhaps it is the game more than the players individually.
