What is the PSI Demo Program?

There is an ever-growing pile of games that many game stores just haven’t had a chance to try out or show off to their customers. Reading the back of the box or watching a review can be fine, but actually being able to open up a box and play a game yourself is one of the best ways to be able to really get the feel of it. PSI wanted retailers to have more opportunities to share great titles with their customers and to expand their libraries. The PSI Demo Program will give friendly local game stores the chance to purchase demo copies of great games at a fantastic price.

Who can order demos through this program?

This program is limited to brick and mortar hobby stores in the United States. Online retailers and mass market outlets are excluded.

Important things you need to know:

  • Each store is limited to 1 copy of a demo title per year.
