Resident Evil 5 Demo Coming To Xbox 360 "One Week Early"

This article is over 15 years old and may contain outdated information

Eager Resident Evil fans found other ways of getting the demo early before the data “mysteriously” corrupted if you were playing outside of Japan. That was a bummer, but everyone in North America will get a chance to play the Resident Evil 5 demo soon. On January 26 Xbox 360 owners get the two level demo which lets players explore Shanty Town and Assembly Place – the two stages in the Japanese demo released back in December.

Capcom explains the exclusivity is for one week in their press release which likely means the Resident Evil 5 demo will appear as a PlayStation Network download a week later. Not so bad compared to what happened in Japan. They never got a downloadble Resident Evil 5 demo. Sony bundled it on a Blu-ray disc with demos of other “adult” games like Metal Gear Solid 4 and gave it to people purchasing new PS3 hardware. Good thing we don’t have to jump through that hoop.
