^It's only the Wii U and 3DS that does. The WiiWare demos back on the Wii didn't have limits. It's much worse on the 3DS since Nintendo actually gives out demos of its games (unlike Wii U).

PS+ had limited full game demos on the PS3. Basically you get an hour of gameplay of the full game.

With Playstation Now, they might do something like that on the PS4 using Now streaming.

That is a time limited version of the full game, we are never getting anything like that from Nintendo

yeah I think that is completely different, I fact I think that the full game trial is alot more generous than a demo, although I am yet to use this feature.

False. But you can't acknowledge what others do if you want to make Nintendo look bad, right?

Yeah it's sort of cool but I could never bring myself to download files that big for something I could only use for an hour. Demos last forever, and I keep ones I like for games I didn't get yet. To download a trial it would have to be something I already really want.

I've used the feature to get a Mass Effect save on my PS3 that was needed to unlock the N7 armor in Dead Space 3.

Most demos are also region free. I just downloaded the Yakuza demo from the JPN store yesterday for the PS4. I have aslo played demos from the EU and HK stored too. But I think the only region locked demo that I've run across was the MG Rising demo.
