I also don't really get it.

I'm sure that limiting the demo to pre-orders helped boost pre-order sales, but it isn't helping sell the game to those on the fence. How can it be a good marketing strategy to market a game (through a demo) to those who've already committed to buying it (through a pre-order)?!

Sell pre-orders with other bonuses (collectibles, cheap DLC, whatever). Leave demos and betas to the public!

Killzone 2 is quite the AV experience on consoles. I think the sound is incredible. Gameplay is solid standard fare but the cover system mixes things up a bit. The AI/animations are the highlights. Immersion probably will split people who like twitch shooters or games that use a lot of aim assist. Was pretty impressed by the game itself, but the sound is what I really like.

The demo is still coming out before the game is released in the US.

Would the people on the fence be any more likely to pre-order based on this short demo? Probably not.

So, if anything, this will push the awareness of the impending release when the demo is released the day prior to release.
