Usually, Xbox 360 demos originate in Japan and North America. Tales of Vesperia is taking the road less traveled by preparing a demo for Asia and India before anywhere else in the world. The good news is the demo is in English. The bad news is you can’t play it this weekend unless you have an Xbox Live Gold Account registered in Singapore, Hong Kong, India or Taiwan.
While you’re waiting for the week long exclusivity to pass you can set up an account in another region by registering a Hotmail account in Taiwan or simply wait for Namco Bandai to release the same demo in North America. A demo with the Burst Artes shown in the video below is coming.
Update: Several commenters quickly pointed that the demo is on the Japanese Xbox Live Marketplace too. Byrc explains (thanks!!) unlike other demos, you don't even need a Japanese gold account to try it! I downloaded it and it works and if your system language is in English the demo is in English. Yeah!
