No TrackMania 2 Demo Plans

An interview on truepcgaming talks with Edouard Beauchemin of Nadeo about TrackMania 2: Canyon, the recently released racing sequel. They discuss various aspect of the game's development, and when he is asked about whether they plan to release a demo, here is his reply: "We have no plan of doing so at the moment. There is already TrackMania Nations Forever offering all of TrackMania’s experience, for free. If people want to play in the Canyon, they have to buy the game."

A demo to a Trackmania game would either be shitty if they don't allow user-created content, or identical to the main game if they do allow it.
Um, what?

A demo without user-created content would be *absolutely fine* and just what people would expect. When it comes to content, demos are pretty much *supposed* to be shitty by comparison with the retail product. No one would ever buy the games otherwise. The whole idea is to give enough of a taste that they want to pay for more. I'm pretty sure this is obvious to most people.

Include a small handful of decent tracks so the player can experience the handling/gameplay of the Canyon car and environment, see how the new graphics run on their machine, etc.

Nations is obviously going to be somewhat indicative, but it's not a demo version of Canyon.
