Limited amount of times you can play a demo?

I just downloaded Dead Rising 3 demo and it says, next to Start Demo, "plays remaining 2". WTF is this garbage? Now you can only play demos a certain amount of time?

Did MS institute demo play limits ala Nintendo? If so - LAME. I haven't seen anything resembling that on my PS4.

They want to limit your experience so that you're more inclined to buy the game.

... Seriously? I thought this was the single dumbest thing Nintendo ever did, and Microsoft is following suit?

Jesus, I knew they desperately wanted Nintendo's audience, but that's not the way to get it.

Well how much of a demo do they give you? Can you explore the whole map? Are you able to do any missions? if so i think that's fair.

Each time I find BS like this I regret my Next-Gen console choice.

-edit-

It seems no other demos have this feature which leads me to believe that it may be something Capcom did and not M$.

It's a closed area of the map with a 20min timer per each play (2 plays max). It's a decent size portion of the map though, but still this is kind of uncool.

How many times do you need to play the demo before you decide to buy the game or not?

If I remember correctly DR2 did the same thing on Xbox 360, a demo with a limited time!
