Max Payne 3 certainly looks jolly nice, but will Rockstar let us try for ourselves before we buy? Of course not. There will no demo for Max Payne's Brazillian adventure, Rockstar has confirmed, so if you're still skeptical about Max's Brazilian adventure, you may have to pop around a friend's and play their copy.

"There are no plans for a demo of Max Payne 3," Rockstar said, plain and simple, on Twitter (via GameSpot). One could accuse them of burying the bad news, but we live in an age when publishers often think it best to relay such information through Twitter, Facebook, forums, and other 'social' spaces most people will miss.

Rockstar's reluctance to release demos is understandable, at least, for its open-world games. Max Payne 3's linear, though, so it wouldn't be unrepresentative to serve a slice for players to try out, see how it runs on their PC, and all that jazz.

Max Payne 3 is diving onto Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on May 15, while the PC version is mysteriously not arriving until May 29.

      Pop a friend? Are you encouraging people to murder their friends in order to obtain their games?

      This will cause many a people to head on over to pirate waters to see if their rig can run it.

      I only find this interesting because the Max Payne 1 demo is the demo that has had the biggest impact on me ever.

      I went from thinking it was a dumb game (not knowing anything about it) to playing the demo 4 times over and over again until I had a chance to pick up the game. I am now a huge Max Payne fan.
