In order for you to manage expectations, Microsoft adds that the demos that will be available as part of the event are “not the norm”. While the games added to the demo channels are created usually after a game has been completed and is, therefore, quite an accurate reflection of the final product, the demos available as part of the ID@Xbox event are even more like show floor demos and are, therefore “not necessarily indicative of the final product.”
Some of the games that are being added are still in the early stages of their development, the post says, with evolution and polishing Still ahead of them, hence the value of the constructive feedback.
Once the event comes to an end, the demos would be removed from the dashboard.
