"[There are] no plans for a demo," associate producer Tanya Jessen told Shacknews. "The reason being that it's been such a fast turnaround. A two year production cycle, for a game of this caliber, is really short."

how long could a demo take. Time it or something.
How is a lack of demo a tradition?

I guess they understand that anybody who owns xbox, has gears1 game and they will buy gears2.

Basically they know that xbox360 = gears 2.

Well I for one think this is good. I want Epic to spend as much time making Gears 2 as much as they can. Because Gear 2 is going to be a day one buy for me so why waste time on a demo when Epic knows people will buy it. Plus they can help use the time to make gears greater. So I am fine without the demo.

People chewed it up and the game did look better than that, when it came out.

Sometimes DEMOS can help the hype or it can deflate it.

Epic rather keep the mouths watering, like of hungry dogs, with trailers and teasers.

Demos are still good but, I'm not spoiled, Ive been through console gens were they were no DEMOS. I'm not sure what's involved with making a DEMO but I'm sure it takes time away from the main game.
