1 illegal dl =/= 1 bought game as well.
if it's a brand new game that's never been released before then release a demo for the simple fact of letting people get a feel for the button layout and possible feel of the game's pace. if the game is a sequel or more then there's no need for a demo. a demo tells you absolutely nothing about the final product.
if you game on a pc for the best graphics possible then why do you want a disk or download with unpolished console graphics on it?
only thing i ever want to hear from the dev team is "100% complete".
