No Fallout 3 Demo

Eurogamer has word from Pete Hines of Bethesda Softworks, who says a demo for Fallout 3 is not in the cards:

When you build it as one thing, there's no way to portion off a section and have it stand on its own without putting the whole game in the demo, which we're just not going to do. And it doesn't really capture the fun of a game like an Elder Scrolls or a Fallout, where you can go where you want and do what you want. So no demo, sorry.

44. Who was expecting a demo? Apr 22, 2008, 00:17 Blackhawk
 
Anyone who has spent any time with the Morrowind or Oblivion construction sets can tell you that making a demo with those engines wouldn't be at all practical. The game doesn't have 'levels' that you can section off and give to someone. You either have the whole world, or none of it.

The only way to make a demo would be to create a demo completely separate from the game (IE - design a whole new world.)
