Pete Hines from Bethesda Softworks says there will be no downloadable demo for the hugely anticipated Fallout 3. He explains:

“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.”

Disappointing, even though his reasons are more than valid enough.
