A clear example of this is a demo of a game called 'DroppyPop' developed by Andy Beaulieu in Silverlight..
The beauty of such an approach is two-fold according to Andy:
Think of it this way: instead of downloading a "trial version" of a game, he can just link you to a web version to try it out on first. Then if you want it "on the go" you can buy it for $0.99 in the Marketplace.
