@Catarrhal: I like the auto downloads alot, patching games/system is the worst thing about the PS3, auto downloads fix all that; but the thought that ever single demo could possibly be downloaded is a bit scary, it's never happened before, why would it happen for this one game?
In the article you linked it says:
To receive the Counter-Strike demo, which is limited to 60 minutes, paying Plus members will need to have automatic downloads turned on, opting in to "Download recommended games and videos."
So I guess it's a separate option? Or maybe by turning automatic downloads on you automatically agree to this, that seems a bit evil. Basically publishers can buy their way into your hard drive...
