10 Demos We'd Have Paid Money For

Pay for a demo!? Pah! That would never happen. And if it did, we'd definitely do a little checking before running a story on it... But some demos kick all the ass, and here's 10 we'd happily pay for.

Wouldn't pay for any of them and its not because they aren't good games

i was buying playstation magazines for psx demo discs, i remember playing the shit out of THPS demo.

I rarely play demos as I'm usually sure about which games interest me and which do not, and I don't want to spoil even the slightest bit of the games I'm truly interested in. So ultimately the only demos I try out are for games I know I'm not going to buy. I don't even touch alphas or betas for much the same reason. I don't understand why anyone would pay for a demo.

Apparently, EA will gladly give in to your demand.

Except that it was a mistake which has since been corrected. Who likes pesky facts though, eh?

Not 85% (roughly) of the posters on this site thats for sure, they LOVE misinformation. The glossy mag journos of the internet are a rabid bunch :)

Without facts we would live in a lawless society, which I wouldn't mind. The strong or the most cunning will rule and everyone else are fodder.

Since we do have actual facts that are universally accepted, we can come together and have a civil debate.

I highly doubt it was a mistake. Out of all companies. Keep in mind ea and microsoft also have a contract. I am sure it was damage control

Are you going to play the Destiny beta?

christian hour1234d ago (Edited 1234d ago )

I am, and it's free, until I pay 60 euro in September of course. But then I also get a full game. It's a sham US & Canada have to pay for pre-orders but that's probably more to do with the banking/credit card system over there than to do with MS/sony/activision/bungie.

Getting into the destiny Beta also means ordering the full game...no extra nor separate price, you just get to play the game for 10 days a month before release as an incentive or pre order bonus. Not to mention you can cancel your pre order after the beta if you like.

If you are willing to pay for a demo, you are an idiot.

christian hour1234d ago (Edited 1234d ago )

You know the article wasn't being 100% sincere, I think they're being slightly hyperbolic about it.

Lost a few weeks of my life to that MGS2 demo :)

The MGS1 demo was passed around my primary school classroom like the common cold, took me months to get that back eventually! There was one kid who would pretend not be home when I called to get it back.

And speaking of paying for demos, people offered me their pocket money to buy the MGS1 demo off me haha.

I love how everyone took an article celebrating some of the most memorable demos in history and turned it in to a negative discussion. Hats off to you people, you are the bitterness in my morning coffee and I love it :D

Mgs1 demo you had to buy as it came with pro evo if I remember and I think mgs2 came with zone of enders.

lol I'm still trying to digest EverydayGuy's bad attempt at sounding profound (comment #2.1.2). I can't even consider an on topic response yet.

I'll move on to the bitterness once I'm done with that.

I'm not paying for a demo, I don't care. Now publishers, what you COULD do to EARN more sales with upcoming games without screwball tactics is what a few games have done back in the day: make a game that you don't expect to make PHENOMENAL sales from, and add a sneek peak/5 minute demo of your upcoming big hit. A game that did that was Zone of the Enders with a sneek peak at MGS2. What's wrong with that?
