Abstract

An entertainment apparatus for providing a user with an entertainment such as a game for experiences. The apparatus has ordinary operation modes (108, 110), in which ordinary games are played for the entertainment, and Try-Me modes (112, 118), in which demonstration game displays are made. The apparatus comprises an input device for receiving the input of an operation by a user, and a device for starting a trial mode (120), in which games to be controlled by the user at a demonstration time are played, in response to the reception of an input in the Try-Me modes (112, 118).
