Video game demos: we don't see enough of them. Once upon a time I would make full purchasing decisions based on the quality of a demo, so good on the EA Sports team for promising a demo of upcoming release EA Sports UFC.
After being asked on twitter if a demo for the game would be made available in the weeks leading to the game's 17 June release date, the official EA Sports twitter account replied in the affirmative. We have no idea at this stage what that demo will look like or when it will be released.
Considering that EA Sports UFC is a largely unknown quantity (particularly when compared to EA's other sports juggernauts like FIFA or Madden) a demo for its debut UFC game makes a lot of sense.
In fact, one of my all time favourite demos was a debut EA Sports game: the demo for SKATE. I reckon that demo must have convinced thousands upon thousands of people to splash cash on the full priced product.
More demos please. I demand a return to the halcyon days of demos!
