Xbox One Scraps Demo Requirements For Digital Downloads

…In short it means that you can't always try a game before buying it, but it's a good thing!…

Responding to gamers through an IGN Q&A session, Microsoft’s Marc Whitten has confirmed that not all digital downloads on the Xbox One will have demo’s available when a game is launched.

Not all games will have demos like Xbox Live arcade games have had on Xbox 360,” Whitten explained… That said, we are going to work on lots of ways to make it easy for you to find and try new games on the service.

So, this means that developers and publishers do not need to work on separate demo code at their own discretion. Where as lesser known games would or could use a demo to encourage sales, hot AAA titles like Halo and Gears, or Call of Duty and Battlefield may not need the additional work on coding in a demo and can simply concentrate on the full and final product.
