Five Games You Probably Bought Because They Came With Demos For Other Games

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is coming packaged with a demo for Final Fantasy XV, and it's likely many will buy the PSP remake just to get a taste of what's coming next for Square Enix's most popular franchise. This isn't the first time a publisher has used the incentive of a demo for a highly anticipated game to help sell another title. Here are a few games that used the same tactic.

Incentive, sure, but ndver bought a game just for the demo. That's stupid.

I bought Zone of the Enders just for the Metal Gear 2 demo that came with it. I played that demo alot more times than the actual game - TBH I didn't even like Zone of the Enders. But Metal gear Solid 2 went on to become my most played game at the time - until Metal Gear Solid 3 came out with multiplayer :)

I got ZoE for ZoE. Could not have cared less about the Metal Gear demo.

Speaking of which, where the hell is my ZoE 3, Kojima????????

Obviously to each their own , and those bundles exists for people like you ... but i quite dont understand the mindset .

Chances are if you even willing to purchase , and at the cost of a new game , a demo ... you're already a 100 Garanteed buyer when the game is released and dont really need such demo

ZOE. I loved that game tho so it was cool.

Getting Type 0 HD for Type 0 actually. The demo is a nice bonus.
Got Dogma specifically for Dogma because I fell in love when my uncle let me play it.

Never purchased the rest of them though I have played both ZoE and the MGS2 demo. Loved both of them.

I'm pretty sure everybody who bought crackdown on the 360 only did so to get into the Halo 3 beta.

My brother bought crackdown for the beta. And I ended up loving crackdown. I spent so many times on his 360 cause of it. Now crackdown 3 is making me want a Xone just good series in my opinion.

I definitely bought it for the Beta. But I was glad I did because Crackdown turned out to be a great game.

A lot of people bought Tobal #1 to play the Final Fantasy VII demo.

Anyone remember MGS2 which came with a demo with Snake in it?

Almost everyone who bought that game bought it for the tanker demo.


Kidding. Anyways I never bought a game to play a demo before but I always appreciated the inclusion of a demo.
