    I'm sick of waiting for them to get the first two games out on PSN so I can actually play them and switch to being sick of waiting for this.

    Yes! But will it really be a demo of Megaman Legends 3 if there's no Megaman in it!? I guess I just get apprehensive whenever a new playable character comes out of the blue (no pun intended!) in a megaman series.

    I was excited until I saw it is a paid demo. That is not a demo. That is an episode of a game. Demos are what you give away to entice people to buy the game when it comes out!

    If I was Nintendo and gave a flying fadoo about the e-Shop, I'd moneyhat Capcom to make this a free download so people would be enticed to connect.

    Downloading day 1. Can't wait.

    EDIT: You know... if they're trying to use this to gauge interest in the full fledged title, you'd think putting it behind a paywall wouldn't be the best idea. Does anyone know how well Case Zero and Dissidia Prologus were received?
    So long & thanks for all the fish!

    Case Zero sold a ton, and was cool in that it really was more than just a demo. This sounds like the same kind of idea. Dunno about prologus.

    Capcom considers Case Zero to be a smashing success. I've got no doubt that its success is what is prompting the Prototype version to be a (possibly) paid demo. Of course, I don't have a problem with it. Two dollars is a bargain for getting such an early look at the game and being able to show my support for my favorite video game franchise while it is facing such hard times... Of course, I probably won't be getting the demo when it is released since I don't have a 3DS yet, and won't anytime soon, so perhaps those sentiments are misplaced.

    I have no problem with it either. I've done the pre-order for beta access thing on a couple of indie/commercial games so I'd be a massive hypocrite to pass on this.

    It seems like they're using this demo not as a gauge for demand, but as a way to get input from fans that will actually be used in designing the rest of the game. In that case, it makes sense to have a small monetary barrier to entry... it's just a way to make sure that the people whose input they're getting care at least $2 worth for the franchise, and keeping the actually disinterested trolls to a minimum.
