Your Demo Questions, Answered
Q: Are the demos free?
Q: Are there any play limitations or time restrictions on demos?
A: Play limitations, yes: you can only access the demos a certain number of times from the menu before they stop loading up. Here's the play limits:
Resident Evil Revelations: 30 plays
Cooking Mama 4: 30 plays.
Q: Can I not just delete them and redownload to get more plays?
A: No, you can't: your play count is at system level, not kept in the file itself.
Q: How big are they?
Resident Evil Revelations: 1153 Blocks / 147MB (approximately)
Cooking Mama 4: 194 Blocks / 25MB (approximately)
Q: What content is included?
A: The Resident Evil Revelations demo is not the same as was included in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D — it's a demo that's been available at various expos and trade shows since late last year.
Cooking Mama 4 lets you make a pizza, step by step.
