Sony announced GT6 back in may and it already has a demo out for everyone. Why can't Nintendo keep up?

Well if they get a demo out in the next 120893712098738912347128 years it will have come faster than GT5.

Let's be real. GT6 has been in development since 2010. Mario Kart 8 started development last year.

Nintendo's deal with Best Buy is most likely still in effect. They might not legally be allowed to release the demo digitally until after a certain time. I'm pretty sure they've said that they've been wanting to release E3 demos so that people who aren't at E3 can play them. My guess is Best Buy approached them asking if they could do it, meaning Nintendo can't release it another way.

cool? Doesn't change the fact that there are demos for games that nintendo aren't releasing to the public for whatever reason.

How extensive was the Best Buy demo? Was it suitable enough to be used as a real demo to download?

I wasn't saying that Nintendo shouldn't have it out. It would be great, but comparing it to Gran Turismo isn't really accurate.

Had you read any post mortem you'd know creating demos isn't as simple as you make it to be and gets in the way of the development cycle easily.
