Cue techno-goth metal: Devil May Cry 4 demo hits one million downloads on LIVE

Capcom shot us a quick email this evening simply to brag, and in exchange for them actually making Dead Rising 2, we're going to let them. (It should be noted that no deals were made between Destructoid and Capcom regarding Dead Rising 2, but we're always available for talks.)

Capcom wants us to know that the demo for Devil May Cry 4 hit one million downloads this past Saturday, February 9. Microsoft tells the publisher that this is the first time in 2008 that a demo has hit the million download mark, in addition to being the fastest to that number in the history of Xbox LIVE. Pretty impressive for some demo of some stupid action game no one's ever heard of, eh?

With no real numbers to back it up, Capcom are also claiming that Devil May Cry 4 has been a huge hit at retail, with reorders for the title coming in just days after the game's release. Yeah, we'll go along with the whole "people are buying our game" shtick, but are they liking it?

For those of you who picked up Devil May Cry 4 last week, is the bees knees or what? Did you pick it up on the PS3 or the Xbox 360? These are burning questions that we demand answers to. Let us know in the comments.
