Hoping this is wrong, but apparently #rd partys aren't aloud to give demos and games for free :( The Bright side, I think Nintendo can give demos for free. Heres the link http://mynintendonews.com/2011/08/15/nintendo-3ds-you-cant-of... :{

I'm questioning the credibility of this story as each "source" is just another website

This site has been right about a lot of things, but I am hoping that its wrong, or Nintendo will change they're minds. Just think about how the DLC will be like!

Wait, then how are the developers offering free demos on the Wii? How about the free apps on the DSi? I call this a load of BS. I mean, wouldn't this seriously hurt Nintendo if they did this? Why would they suddenly do something like that? Nintendo lately has been promising that they are trying to change their ways with how they deal with their online service. This would be taking it exactly the opposite direction they are going for.

This is definitely a WTF? thing; Nintendo may have a lot of problems with its current online distribution methods, but no free demos? Really?

Exactly.

I'm not sure if I'm willing to pay for this game, but I as might as well try out the demo to see if I like it--d'oh wait.
also i'm starting to become desperate for any kind of demos from nintendo since they said they'd be available this year

I thought...
Nintendo said demo's will download automatically, so that must mean they are free... otherwise they will charge you.

This isn't adding up at all. The source is questionable and the story is questionable

Nintendo already said that it will allow demos to be automatically obtained via SpotPass, so this story seems to be b-s. Maybe they are not allowed to do this YET, but it will happen in the future. The same was once told about WiiWare, and as everyone knows there were demos available for quite a few titles on the service. I wouldn't hold Mynintendonews up on that one...

i need demos of some game to buy them. thats what i do on pc before making my decisions.
some games have bad reviews, but they still appeal me anyway, give me fun time.
bacause i cant try the game first, i dont buy the game.

are they afraid that some games suck so much they wont sell them anymore ?
or maybe thats because a lot of them just dont have enough content to make a demo out of it. its almost already a demo ! (being half serious there, im just kidding really)

It's been confirmed that this isn't true.

Your free demo of Super Mario 3D Land will be arriving this Fall via Spotpass or manually through Nintendo eShop. Thank You.

As much as I hope this isn't true, there's still a possibility it is. Indeed, Nintendo has stated themselves that downloads will be offered for free, via automatic SpotPass downloads. They never stated whether these games will be 1st or 3rd party, however. We will be getting free demos, but they could just all be 1st party.

If we talk and have fun here on NL, feel free to add me!! (Just let me know so I can accept)

All right, so automatic 1st party demos will be coming, but what about 3rd party game demos? I feel a lot less confident buying a 3rd party game than a 1st party Nintendo game, so hopefully they'll allow 3rd party 3DS game demos to be available on the eShop, maybe in a system like Nintendo Channel's DS demo system.

Exactly.

I doubt this is true.
There seems to be no reason why that would be the case.
I'm sure Nintendo want to encourage people to buy games on their consoles and demos only help that.
