Bethesda says "no way" for a Fallout 3 demo

fallout 3If you are a Fallout fan or someone who is curious in seeing how Fallout 3 will play like through a demo, Pete Hines of Bethesda Software has crushed your wishes. Hines said that there is "no way" to pull a piece of Fallout 3 from the main game code and have it functioning by itself.

"When you build it as one thing, there’s no way to portion off a section and have it stand on its own without putting the whole game in the demo, which we’re just not going to do. And it doesn’t really capture the fun of a game like an Elder Scrolls or a Fallout, where you can go where you want and do what you want. So no demo, sorry."

Sorry indeed. With no demo slated for Fallout 3, Bethesda may be the one that is sorry because of possible lost sales because of the lack of a demo. While Hines’ explanation of not being able to isolate a portion of Fallout 3 for demo purposes sounds good on the surface, it might be because Bethesda doesn’t want to fork out additional cash and time in providing a demo.

Demos have been cranked out for ages. Does Bethesda really think that it is too difficult to provide one for Fallout 3 because they can’t break the code up? Pretty unlikely and could this be a possible warning to all that the game may not be as good as everyone is expecting since they are reluctant to provide a demo for the game?
