  2. Nintendo 3DS
  3. So why does the 3DS have a limit on demo usage?

I know it's 30 uses, but seems a bit odd that they would put it there in the first place. >_>

So people wouldn't withhold on the game, believing the demo is enough.

(I think I could of worded that better.)

because the 3ds isn't powerful enough to run it more than 30 times.

For the psychological effect, once you see that there is a limit on it, even though you're probably not gonna play it that many times anyway, it'll cause you to pay more attention to the deno and really play it to get the most out of it.

Why do people always say this? I've yet to meet anyone who prefers demos over full games.

It's just one way Baha tries to justify Nintendo's mistakes. You should have seen him before the demos started coming out, he was crazy and defended Nintendo for every little problem.

Yup keep on twisting my words around. Besides the limit isn't something to whine about anyhow, unless it's like the Mass Effect 3 demo where yo can sink hours into it most demos don't last that long and don't warrant a lot of playtime.

This is the most credible answer.
