Fallout 3 demo not possible

Bethesda's Pete Hines has confirmed that there will be no demo for Fallout 3.

Speaking exclusively to Eurogamer in the shape of Kieron Gillen, Hines said there was "no way" to slice a portion of the world off and have it stand on its own.

"When you build it as one thing, there's no way to portion off a section and have it stand on its own without putting the whole game in the demo, which we're just not going to do," said Hines.

Understanable, I doubt many people will be disappointed with the final product anyway.

there are developers who need no demo because their reputation talks wonders.

How much more evidence do you need to expect this game will be incredible. Bethesda and Hines have the ultimate proof in oblivion, which for the amount of time I played it cost me less than 50 cents an hour. This is one game that I trust to be entertaining, much like GTA4, all one needs to do is look at prior work for the equity this game requires.

Actually, while Oblivion was a good game, it's what has made people worried about Fallout 3 and is the only thing against F3 because it was a really simplified and shallow RPG compared to previous games in Elder Scrolls series and way more easier and less complex than original Fallouts.

Fallout 3 has a completely different strategy, theme and gameplay to Oblivion's and to make a good and successful Fallout 3, Bethesda needs to distance itself from Oblibion as much as possible.

not suprising, there was no oblivion demo either its just impossible to do it with games like these

To compensate, they should release some good footage of actual gameplay (no cut-scenes, or very little).

The guys at NMA and Duck and Cover would shred the thing at give it tons of negative press. They're not happy with the way this game is going. Although to be fair the only thing they'd be satisfied with is Fallout 2.5 (2D, sprite based isometric gameplay).

Good one though like them, I'd prefer a turn-based 2D isometric Fallout 3 / 2.5 as well. TB and 2D FTW!
