No Prelaunch Demo for Borderlands

There will not be a demo before the launch of Borderlands, though a demo may still follow the release of Gearbox's upcoming role-playing shooter. This comes from Joystiq, who learned this from a 2K rep, who told them: "Everyone is really, really focusing on getting the game done for release ... that's not to say there will never be a demo, just not before launch." This jibes with a comment they attribute to Randy Pitchford's GamesCom presentation, as he says he hopes people will be drawn to the game through solid word of mouth. Also, Eurogamer has comments from Pitchford about DLC, who says "people are going to be surprised when they find out how quickly we're coming, and with what content we're coming", though they are also planning on evaluating what players want to seem more of. "But we do have some plans for the initial stuff already in motion, and I'll be announcing that soon," he adds.

I'm still getting Borderlands day 1 preorder. I don't think the games of today are crap... The problem is there is less variety. We are playing the same stuff over and over and it is wearing thin. Borderlands is trying the random loot drops system seen in Diablo and Hellgate London. I wish more games did this kind of thing.

Why did you bother to post is the real question?
They didn't say 'no demo', just no pre-launch demo.

Because all you xbox children having mommy buy your games for you based on nothing but teaser videos and marketing hype is what has brought us to the complete and utter CRAP we have today.

If a shit company can sell 1 million pre-orders for a shit game nobody's played yet...then they can justify making a sequel to said shitty game thus propagating continual shit.
How will I know limits from lies if I never try?

Based on what I've seen, I'd be surprised if I played this and didn't like it. I plan on getting it at or near launch. Of course a demo would help seal the deal, but in this case it's not necessary for me.

The only thing I find more humorous than "No Live = No Buy" is "No Demo = No Buy".

No Demo = No Buy

Now why was I caring about this game in the first place?
