I can answer this: no.

Here's how I know.

When I went with Pack Rat to publish Fellowship of the Ring, one of  
the enticements was that I could pick a cartridge out of their  
lineup, to see the production quality and reassure myself that I'd be  
happy having them publish.

Because I'd played Skeleton via emulation, I knew that it was a fun  
game, and so that was the one I chose.

Now maybe that doesn't quite count as a sale, since I got it free,  
and I don't know whether you receive royalties on promo copies, but  
the fact is, that if I hadn't played it beforehand, I would have  
picked something else that I knew I was going to like.
