Developer: Demos Shitty games Kill Sales
Looks much better.
Speaking of no demos better sales, let's see how well the new Aliens game does in sales. It had no demo so it should do exceptionally well in sales right?
If it won't, well then lets blame piracy on that one.

I wish that were true, it aint though. Im guessing that the game probably sold a shitload through preorders alone. It will probably break even since Randy and Co. outsourced its production to China or god knows where for peanuts...
We'll see. I doubt other then the preorders they will sell a ton of copies. Ones people see the reviews and the word of mouth on forums and other media forms like twitter etc. I doubt their sales will be anywhere near expected, but I might be wrong.
However based on my experience with games, shitty games will not sell regardless of demos, good one will look at Skyrim.

Skyrim was based on existing IP by the same company and had a long and excellent track record. Arena and Daggerfall both had demos, IIRC.
