It really depends on how much they are going to charge me. If it were 10$ or so, I'd buy it.

Not for an early demo but yes for some retail games. Of course it depends on how much but I'd pay an extra $10 or so to get NCAA 11 a week early.

I would pay extra depending on how early the games were released. I would definitely pay extra for an early release of NCAA Football 11. I would pay an exrta $10 for a week or two early for NCAA.

Ditto....

I only put yes because I have paid a little more when Madden 10 and The Show 09 came out. Other than that, I wouldn't pay more for a demo.

no for demo, no for early retail because it's usually available in mom & pop shops a couple of days before "retail". throw an exclusive freebie, dlc, etc and a might think about it.

No to both, the compaines make enough as it is. They usually rush their product to market before it is ready. Would this mean you would have to wait an extra week or two to get a patch? Probably. Thus no...

No. I love having demo's come out to check out games that I am on the fence about, but I think $60 right now is enough for a game. I also think across the board there are to many issues with rushed games. How many times have we all bought a game only to get home and have to wait for a patch to use a feature of a game that was the main reason we bought it. An early release would,in my opinion, only make this matter worse.

I would for a retail version, but not for a demo. NBA 2K comes to mind. Thats probably the only one I would.
 
# 10 Double C @ 05/03/10 11:11 AM
No to both. We already give enough money for games, DLCs, etc.
 
# 11 TreyIM2 @ 05/03/10 11:27 AM
Well, since I am currently unemployed and have learned more of a tilt toward curbing my spending habits, I'd say no to both. Lol. Ask me again when I am gainfully employed. Ha.

You have to be a fool to pay extra for a early release..

Most likely its more unfinished that it would've been at the later date...

Never paid for a Trial or a Demo...

I would say I would pay about 10 xtra to get Ncaa 11 early ....maybe more..
 
# 14 boxboy99 @ 05/03/10 11:56 AM
Hell NO! I usually get NCAA and Madden early every year anyways. I live near the spot in Ohio. A demo is to demonstrate to me why I should buy the game retail. Sounds pretty greedy to charge for a demo that is basically a marketing trial.

No. I can wait.
 
# 16 Jgainsey @ 05/03/10 12:51 PM
No, but I'd pay 10 bucks to punch the first Exec who pulls the trigger on this in the mouth.

After all the DLC that's been released in the last two years along with DNA codes (roster updates) that you have to pay for if you buy the game used, I think this stuff is just in the early stages. Look at how many pre-order deals there are for games. Madden 10 offerend an extended demo for pre-orders. Marvel Ultimate Alliance threw in extra characters for free. The Show 10 threw in classic stadiums for pre-order. There is a market for this stuff and financial incentives for it. It's going to happen eventually to demos and early release as well. The real question is what won't we have to pay for down the road.

I second that Jgainsey.
 
# 19 Gotmadskillzson @ 05/03/10 01:06 PM
I have done it before several times. Stores usually get games 2 weeks before release date. So give the clerk a little extra and off you go.
 
# 20 GlennN @ 05/03/10 01:19 PM
I would never pay more for an early copy of a game. $60.00 is high enough. Since games do go on sale, or get discounted, I guess, in a way, paying full price on release day is kind of paying extra to get it early. In that sense, yeah, I have done it on several occasions.
