Bethesda's Pete Hines revealed to Eurogamer that there will not be a demo released for Fallout 3, because it doesn't want to slice out a portion of the world, declaring that there is no way of having the world split.
"When you build it as one thing, there's no way to portion off a section and have it stand on its own without putting the whole game in the demo, which we're just not going to do," said Hines.
"And it doesn't really capture the fun of a game like an Elder Scrolls or a Fallout, where you can go where you want and do what you want. So no demo, sorry."
Fallout 3 is due to be released this autumn on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
