    It's not likely for Nintendo 1st party AAA games, they usually let 3rd parties release demos or for their own 'tough sell' games.

    Nintendo has said somewhere* they believe people are less enthusiastic to buy a game after they've demoed it. I don't understand that logic, but that's them.

    With the bad launch, I think some demos would make me more enthusiastic about the games that are coming. BTW with a demo I can know what i'm going to buy and what i'm not, because you can test a game if a game is bad i won't buy it, but if all games are good I would buy it. If nintendo thinks that a demo is a problem, they are completely wrong.

    + It will avoid piracy, because some fans, like myself are forced to pirate games, to try and see if they are worth getting, and then buy them.

    There will be demo's but be implemented later... probably after September.

    Reggie said that during the Nintendo conference

    Watching a game =/= Playing a game

    You should send an email to Nintendo. How the hell are we suppose to know if it's yes or no ??

    Best Buy's 3DS demo station has a "demo" version of Pilotwings Resort, though you have to play it on their unit. Does that count?
