So you have to pay $5 to pre-order the game and then you get the demo? This guy does realize that they have been doing this for years, right?

The point here isn't that Gamestop has done this in the past, the point is that Capcom intended the demo to be freely available, meaning, walk in, grab the demo, walk out - no hassle, no pre-order. Monster Hunter doesn't perform well in the west, and Capcom is trying to generate hype over the new game. Gamestop is completely overlooking Capcom's intentions here, and using the demo to leverage sales. In other words, yes, it is news.
