    Great news for those wondering if they could play demos for more than 30 times, and the answer is yes! So, in the event you don't get a game with your Switch then you'd be able to play demos for as long as you'd get tired of them. :P

    Great. Hope they have an ARMS Demo, because I am not buying without a demo.

    So why was there a limit anyway? I mean in comparison to the NDS download only play demos, was it worst? Cause i mean that just didn't make sense to me to limit a demo with limited plays. The demo is already limited. :P

    Did they not want people to git gud playing a demo a lot unless they buy the game?

    But we will see what games get demos.
    I heard that nintendo doesnt like putting out to may demo games. So i doubt we will get alot of games with demos.
    Also wonder what will be in the demos.

    I remember there was a wind walker 20min gamecube demo.

    I read a piece recently that claimed demos actually hurt sales. The more I think about it the more I believe that. Takes all the cut scene trailers, fancy box art and selected screen shots out of the equation.

    Inside your miiind, and poof.
    Then I'm gonna spend a lot of time on them. I remember in the 3DS days before piracy, demos were all I had. :P

    :P

    The game is fun but worth the full RRP? IMO, no. Not worth it.

    ARMS can be highly addictive for a couple hours but this also comes down if you have local people to play it with, yeah, there will be online play and the game will be compatible with the Pro Controller although ultimately ARMS was intended to be played with the Joy-Cons and all of its motion control moves. It would be cool if Sega could get Sonic, Shadow, Musashi (Shinobi) and Ryo (Shenmue) as playable fighters. :)

    It would be really cool if it is done as a way to promote the secret version of Shemue 4 coming to the switch. >illuminati
