This sounds stupid; why are they not releasing demo kits to retailers?

this is a baaaad bad sign


Probably because having limited demos will build up hype.

If you throw out demos everywhere a month before launch you'll get a situation where the system loses its luster if everyone gets to demo it and not to mention there will be numerous defects or glitches that will skew done from buying the system.

Having it available for 150 minutes means the vast majority won't get to play it but will show up, get wowed and want that ****.

Gamefaqs. The only place where you can get called a troll for throwing facts and opinions around.

I didn't think of it from that point of view, good point.

Just like bad games when they release with no demo...they are banking on PR spin rather than letting the hardware speak for itself

smh, that's been the story all along here

What I was thinking lol. It will be like that professional sports player at the mall, signing autographs, who just scrapped into the majors and no one knows. You walk by, see 10 people in line and laugh.

Is the Xbox One being delayed in Arizona or something? not much of an early access if it is 2 weeks after the console launches.
