God damn, that headline has a lot of numbers in it. But the info is sound and the info is good.
Yes, Capcom has officially announced that the Resident Evil 5 demo will be coming to the PlayStation 3 on February 2. The demo will feature two levels, Shanty Town and Assembly place, and will support single-player, online co-op, and split-screen co-op. It will be available on the PlayStation Network for the sweet price of "free."
As previously revealed, Xbox 360 owners will be getting it first ... well, if you're an Xbox LIVE Gold account holder, that is. The Microsoft flavor will be available on January 26.
Resident Evil 5 hits retail on March 13, and yeah, it looks like you're going to need a calendar to keep track of all of these dates.
