Default Official Doom 3 demo?

Does anyone know when the demo will be released?

You know, I have a feeling that no one in the world knows when it'll be released.

I suspect that id is holding the free demo until the initial sales of Doom3 drop off. I certainly never would have bought the whole game if a downloadable demo was available.

i think that id figured that everyone and their dog knew about d3, so why bother putting out a demo when everyone would buy it. anyway, if they put out a demo, some people might have been disappointed in it and might not have bought the retail. some people were disappointed, after all. so overall, a demo might have hurt their sales.
