Tamizander of XboxInsider writes "I always, always try to play the demo of a game that I'm considering buying. I wait. I check Xbox Marketplace. Generally, I enjoy the game and rent/buy it to give myself more time to play it. Sometimes, I'm disappointed and I pass on the game. Nowadays, demos before release are getting rarer and rarer. In a world where we've gotten used to trying the game before we buy it (XBL Arcade, anyone?), it's not as much our disappointment with being unable to play a game, but what not having a demo before release has become to mean to gamers. But, is there any correlation between a demo before release and after release? Does it change the game's quality, or does it affect sales? Let's dig deeper."
