I really don't want to go back and make the list again, I had started doing it before you made that post because I knew what was coming :)

OK, so your "evidence" still counts but you can't be bothered to go back and produce it (even though it apparently only took you 6 minutes.)

Even a quick look at the x360 Demo list right now ( shows no pre-release demo's in the last 6 months.

In fact, is this list even right with the demo release dates? If it is... I just went through the first 100 entries and most of the "new demo's" are for games over a year old. Where are the pre-release date demo's for the games released in the last year? This list shows that it's even less than I was giving you credit for.

I can tell you (again from experience only) that the list is wrong if it's not showing any pre-release demos in the last 6 months. Bulletstorm's demo was out before the game (I know because I pre-ordered it as a result of playing the demo) and I also played the demo for Dead Space 2 a month before launch. As Jerykk pointed out, DA2 got a pre-release demo as well on PC and console. Those are just three examples but are within the last 6 months. Many of the demos do end up showing up on the "new content" list on the XBLM sites, even if they came out earlier. I don't know if that changes the actual listed release date or not but it would appear to. Again, this is not the case with all demos but (again from my experience), your one cited source so far has been proven wrong.

Feel free to continue to find ways to alter the argument so that you don't have to admit being wrong even once. I'll let our posts stand on their own now and people can decide who (if either of us) to believe. My lunch break is over so I've got to get back to work.
