What ever happened to the demos coming out about a month before the game is released... thats the way it used to be, now you get the full version and about a month later the demo is released?

:?

The majority of games suck so bad that the companies have resorted to creating bogus hype for their product ahead of time. Then they sell as many copies the first month as hype allows. Most people buy it to "test it out" then either love it or hate it ... most dislike the game. THEN they put out the demo just to try and snag a few other individuals who appreciate horrid user interface and/or bad game play.

... or, that's just my guess :twisted:

If you waited a year or more for the game to come out what's so bad about waiting an extra month or so for the demo. It's not like you need the game the day it comes out.

Have you ever decided not to go the the theatre to watch a movie but instead wait for it to come out on DVD?

$50 is a lot to drop on a game without trying it out first. We're probably spoiled as PC gamers, however, as I don't see as many demos for console games yet they sell like crazy notwithstanding bad reviews. Then again, a lot of us usually don't buy a magazine without flipping through it first and it only costs 4-5 bucks.

Actually yeah, but by then I lose interest and don't even rent it :).
