    So I downloaded the demo, and the first thing that I noticed was that the audio quality seemed downright abysmal down to the point that when certain sound effects or musical notes played, it sounded fuzzy/crackling like low quality audio would sound. Granted, I'm playing this on an XL through the speakers, and when playing with earbuds, it doesn't sound as bad (but still noticeable).

    Many people have said it is because it is a demo, and in order to keep the download size low, they compress or lower the quality of the audio. So....

    Has anyone experienced this with the demo on an XL, and does anyone also have the retail so they can check if the two versions differ in audio quality?
     
  2. I've heard about audio problems with the demo but the actual game is fine. It's probably just because the demo is compressed.

    I don't know about the demo, but the audio in the final game is very good. At least it is in the EU version and I don't see why it'd be different.

    The demo seems to be where the prob. lies. I recall Rayman Origins' demo suffering the same fate.

    I can't download the demo because system need me to update the firmware.
    Currently on 4.4 u
    If I update, will it update to the latest firmware of 6.2u?

    Yes.

    BTW I own the Japanese copy of the game. Audio is just fine.
    Perhaps the demos are compressed.
