    yes there is a demo of Trine 2, which was good enough for me to actually buy the game and I love it.

    You can play a table on Zen pinball, which I don't like, but when I left the room my 3 year old purchased the game for me by accident grrrrrr!!!

    There is a basketball demo, again I didn't like that at all.

    Also a LEGO game demo - which is great for the kids. Plays like all the other lego games.

    There are also some free to play games like:

    Warframe - not my thing, but sounds decent
    War Thunder - again, not my thing, but looks comprehensive for sure
    Retribution - plays and looks like a 10 year old PC FPS MOD. Again some people like it , I thought it was poor.

    There is also Pinball Arcade which lets you trial the various tables, can't remember if it gives you one table for free like Zen Pinball.

    Pinball Arcade gives you one full table free, tales of the Arabian nights. Set the room brightness to dark and enjoy!

    What ever happened to Sony's promises of playable demo's for all games when they first announced the PS4, or do i have that wrong ?

    No, your right mate. I'm sure they also said all games will have a demo

    I seem to remember something like this as well.
    I expect it is the game's publisher that decides whether or not to issue a demo to Sony to place in PS Store, but - especially for AAA releases - it is nice to have a demo so £50+ won't be needlessly wasted.

    Also, being of the cynical type, I'm always a bit suspicious of when big-hitters do not release demos. I always find myself asking 'Why not?'.

    The Tearaway demo was great to play. Using the PS app as a second screen is great as well. You can fling pictures straight into the game!

    The two Metro games have Demos. They are both pretty decent demos too in terms of length

    Yes, I believe a third of each game and you can use your save file on the full game if I'm not mistaken.
