No Far Cry 2 Demo

Eurogamer has word from Ubisoft's Clint Hocking that we should not expect a demo version of Far Cry 2, as this is another of those open-world style games the won't readily scale to a sample version: "One reason is, even if we were to give out what you played today - even if we put invisible walls around it and said, here's the demo, you can go anywhere you like inside these walls and play it how you want - that's potentially right there eight-to-ten hours of gameplay. I don't know too many people who are willing to give away a 12-hour game for free."

Indeed we have. I am sick of the silly excuses big developers use for not making a demo. They even try and tell their own programmers its for some fuzzy reason, yet we all know its because they expect to sell the game based on hype.
How about taking 10% of the marketing budget, and using that to make a kick-ass specially designed demo that lets you experience how cool the game really is?
That makes more sense to me, assuming you know you have made a good, fun agme and not just a hyped tech demo.
