I've always felt that demos are a good idea, since it gives you a small taste of the game, and if done correctly, they can leave you wanting more. On the flip side, demos that show off really bad or unpolished gameplay can actually hurt sales (or in the case of NBA Elite 11, get cancelled completely).
Generally if I check out a demo, it's because I already know I'm going to get the game and I want to whet my appetite, or I get told to check it out by friends or family. As for the latter, only twice can I actually say that a demo convinced me to by a full version of a game, and that was Gran Turismo for the PS1, and Skate on PS3.
