There won't be a GTA 4 demo, Rockstar has told

Speaking during our hands-on with what will surely be 2008's biggest game, a Rockstar rep told us that a demo "isn't worth the time and effort".

When asked if there will be a demo Rockstar replied: "I'm sure there won't be. If there was we would have talked about it. With a game like this the guys at Rockstar North will want to spend every minute making the game look great. Most people know the concept of GTA anyway. I don't know that the demo is worth the time and effort."

He added: "Also much of GTA 4 is the driving around and we wouldn't be able to give out the whole city. We would have to give away half the game for free. People would think Liberty City is a tiny city. You run into problems."
