Can't you just knock out a paper copy with the disk?
If I want a demo 3 months after the games release I'll just download one from Live.

I'm guessing PS3Tard means a paper copy without disc, which I think would be a good idea, especially if it saves a few quid.

I'm also very worried about your increasing number of threats of world domination in recent months Edwin, I'm starting to get nervous

It's been discussed, but it's not in the pipeline. It would cause all sorts of problems putting a different edition out, for extremely boring reasons to do with retailers and stock management, and enough people still rate the disc that we keep it.

Cheers Jonty.

I sort of guessed that if it was possible it would already be an option but always nice to get an answer from the powers that be.

Also, shockingly, some people still do not have Xbox Live, so the discs provide a welcome old school feel for the magazine.

Damn it, I have live and still prefer the magazine. I don't even play the demo's but it's good to break up the pile of FHM's

Very occasionally they can also become collectors items. I've still got a Dreamcast demo disc of Half Life. This is particularly interesting as the game was cancelled just before release (due to the Dreamcast going out of production) and makes the demo the only way to play it. Well, until the full version got leaked anyway. But it still fetches a pretty good price when it comes up for sale.
I wonder if OXM have released any demos discs of games that were then cancelled on original Xbox or 360? :?:

Surely the next logical step is a fancy Windows 8 OXM app then?

You guys know you want to give us all the perfect excuse to shell out on a Surface tablet (please?!).
