Default Doesn't seem like there isn't as many demos these days?

For console games.

There's a few games out that have no demos. I seem to remember a demo for almost every game on XBL. Maybe it's just me.

I see it too.
There aren't many updates for PSN that include a new demo.

There have been a few. A few betas too. I just got into one of some PS3 game. Nothing of note though.

Double negative ftw! Makes my brain hurt trying to understand the question.

Really? It can be a way to try a game you're not sure of, or get a little taste of a big game coming soon like GoW3.

I try to steer clear of demos for games I already know I'm going to buy so as not to spoil anything, but I agree about games you are on the fence about. Although lately I've just been using Gamefly to demo games, which works out better anyway because if i like the game I just buy it through them and save a few bucks.
