2010, the year of demo apps with DLC.

It's going to be a different year for gaming folks. Already you can see the spike in DLC apps. 2009 was a good year, great apps, little $$. I think it's all coming to a change.

Thats the way it should have been for the very beginning. A hell lot better than having separate lite and full versions.

god speed brother...god speed. But gahhhhh, DLC is such a pain!!! sometimes it doesnt work, sometimes you have to keep DL/ing it, why not just protect your apps better that are paid!!! Cuz if i see more stuff like F.A.S.T. or Skies Of Glory or Eliminate, i will eat myself, as much as we hear this, its a rip off! theres a whole post about this dude talking about how its a ripoff!

I agree that they are on the extreme side of what we would expect for DLC. Eliminate would be a must better game without the limitation but it can be played and managed, but I hear ya. How about Dark Nebula, you get 30 min of gameplay and then it's time to buy again, not my style.

Yep two good examples of how it should be done IMO.

Ya, looking forward to the lite versions going away. I think we'll get better and more accurate tests of demos minus the weight of an extra app.
