EA’s $10-15 demo ideas: Are they joking?

I almost choked on my cornflakes when I heard about this. It has been confirmed that EA are going to explore the possibility of charging gamers for demos, which will contain larger content.

As reported from Eurogamer, EA are using this method to test whether a game is popular enough or not. If it is, then the publisher will then proceed on with a full retail copy of the game.

If the move goes ahead, EA will be charging around $10-15 for demos on the Playstation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace. Battlefield 1943 which was released in 2009 is thought to be a similar example of how this service will operate.

I’m sure EA have thought this through clearly, but it seems like a very risky move to me. Let us know your thoughts on this. Do you agree?
