Can you download demos or buy games on store without Xbox Live Gold?

This is one area I think Microsoft needs to do a better job of advertising. The seemingly general consensus is that everything on the system is hidden behind the Live pay wall. And a lot of things are, including some that perhaps shouldn't be (Netflix, HBO GO).

But the Store is not one of them. The "try before you buy" is still, and hopefully always will be, free. Otherwise, it isnt "before you buy" anymore.

Certain demos aren't available straight away for people without premium subscriptions IIRC. But they wouldn't turn away a chance to make a sale for people who don't have a gold subscription.
