“When you pre-order a game, you’re a guaranteed sale in the publisher’s eyes. Instead of having to guess how many people will buy the game, it has a good idea of the sales to expect.
Game demos, once an important way to try before you bought, are all but extinct. Why would a developer offer a demo when it knows you’re going to buy the game anyway? And with multiplayer-focused games, access to the beta is usually restricted to a pre-order bonus.“ – makeuseof.com
