Limited amount of times you can play a demo?

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


If you can name one thing that you hate and it is honestly a fair and accurate criticism of Microsoft, Xbox One, or any of the typically disliked developers and/or practices in modern gaming, I won't call you out on anything ever again.

Otherwise, is there nothing you won't side with when people question it?

To answer your question: as many ******* times as they feel like it. It's a free demo.

Well then, why put demo limits in at all then if people will make up their mind after one or two plays anyway? Surely no one would continue to play a demo over and over again just because they love it and can't yet afford the game...like kids do...right? It's anti-consumer. Don't defend that stupidity.

If someone isn't going to by the game its not really anti-consumer to prevent them from playing the demo on an extended basis.

The demo thing is the choice of the publisher and I'm never going to bash restricted demos ever.

Personally I would like to see games follow the PS+ model of one free hour with full game access but that is probably unlikely.

Putting stuff like this into demos makes me less inclined to buy the game.

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


Nintendo?? since when. on the Wii U?

Some games don't have a demo at all.

Wii U does it, but it started on the 3DS. Different demos have a different amount of plays. Some have 10, 20, 30 or unlimited plays.
