Anyone who has downloaded this demo from the update on Thursday can attest to the problems that it came with. Players were repeatedly told open rooms were full and that servers couldn't be connected to. Well, the demo has been pulled from being downloadable and apparently will be fixed and put back up shortly.
Capcom's Senior Director of Communications has apologized for the error and has noted that their team is working overtime in order to fix these issues and bring you the great online capabilities that Lost Planet is capable of.
Hopefully this isn't foreshadowing of what's to potentially come, come release day.
