Microsoft and Sony most of the time offer demos for their upcoming AAA game releases.
It creates hype, people can play them and get an idea if they want to buy them etc...

Nintendo on the other hand NEVER releases demos of their AAA games for people to download and try.


I want to try Pilotwings before I spend 40 bucks on it.
I want to try Kid Icarus before I spend 40 bucks on it.
I want to try Mario Kart 7 before I spend 40 bucks on it.
I want to try Super Mario 3D Land before I spend 40 bucks on it.
I want to try Zelda OoT 3D before I spend 40 bucks on it.
I want to try New Super Mario Bros 2 before I spend 40 bucks on it.
I want to try Paper Mario Sticker Star before I spend 40 bucks on it.
I want to try Mario Tennis 3D before I spend 40 bucks on it.

AND I want to try out Luigi's Mansion and Animal Crossing demos whenever they are released too.


Why can't Nintendo release a short demo to be downloaded a week before each of these game releases so people can try them out and decide?

EVERY 3rd party company for Nintendo releases some demos.

Does Nintendo think "It's a new game made buy Nintendo, there is not reason to try it, JUST BUY IT!"

I agree. It's complete nonsense. Hell, the demo for Twisted Metal PS3 had online play, even. And thank you for getting it right and saying "Nintendo is." People who say "Nintendo are" don't know a thing about grammar.

This.

There's no reason to have demos when your games sell like hotcakes without them.

NoJ isn't a thing, guys.

Also, videos are not demos. I can't appreciate the gameplay of a video.
