Xbox One Demo's and Trials Coming Soon

For those of you lucky enough to have an Xbox One it appears you've been having your cake and demanding even more cake from Microsoft in the form of demos and trial games from Xbox Live Arcade.  It would seem that as you left the world of Xbox 360 behind you also left the chance of trailing a game before buying it and missing the opportunity of downloading a demo to play when you've become bored of the hundreds of games sat upon your bowing shelf. 

Well it appears that Microsoft have been listening to the X1’s collective community (again) and in a recent interview with Eurogamer Chris Charla (Microsoft ID@Xbox boss) said,

“When Xbox One launched you could do game demos and you could do games. But we didn't have the functionality that was on Xbox 360 - that 'trial' experience where you could download a demo and then convert it [to a full version],"

"But now we do. In the same way that we update the Xbox One OS every month, they update the development system every month - or regularly, anyway. So that's something that we recently turned on. I don't think we've seen any ID@Xbox games yet that have shipped with trials, but we may well in the future. It's something that's open to everybody."

So are you happy that this feature is finally coming to your X1?  Where you missing this?

    Always found it strange how they didn't bother with demos in the first place. Not too bad that they are actually coming back.
