No Gears of War demo?
There will be no Gears of War demo prior to the game's release, Epic's Mark Rein has decreed. "We've said that before. Demos take a long time to create and polish and we can't afford to get derailed like that if we want to have the game in stores by Thanksgiving. Given a choice of the game this year or a demo this year and the game next year I'm sure every one of you would rather have the game this year because you're already planning to buy it. No idea if we'll do a demo or not after the game ships." A bit presumptive, but if nothing else, Epic does have plans for extra downloadable content.
