Default Uncharted demo packaged w/ inFamous?

http://www.gamezine.co.uk/features/uncharted-2-demo-beta-code-on-infamous-disc--$1290256.htm

Purely speculative but I'm posting b/c this would be awesome.

I tend to doubt it. Simply because that's just too huge a lag in time between the release of the demo and the release of the game.

Point is, Sony should be doing this with more of their first party stuff.

I disagree. I don't like when companies get gimmicky with demos. Demos are a tool, used to sell me a game. Don't start treating demos like they're some sort of privilege for me, that I should start buying games to play such demos etc. That's nonsense.

Why do you think Resident Evil: Code Veronica for the PS2 sold so well?

Well I agree here, but if its encouragement to get the demo out the door...I wouldn't mind XD

As much as I love the original DMC (and it's my favorite game of last gen), that really wasn't the reason for it. Capcom had a huge marketing campaign that they neglected to do with the DC original and back in 2001, traditional RE was still hot.

I remember going into EB Games when I was like 12 and the guy pushing it on to me...and then he realized I was 12 and goes "do your parents know you play these games?". I thought it was really funny.

They did it with Metal Gear Solid 2. That's how they sold the crap that is...Zone of the Enders.

Fine, that's an example of what I'm talking about.
