Resident Evil 5, Beautiful Katamari hit Games on Demand

9:40 AM on 02.16.2010 // Nick Chester

The Xbox 360 Games on Demand train continues to roll, as Resident Evil 5 and Beautiful Katamari have hit the service in North America today. The seven gig Resident Evil 5 will run you $29.99, and $19.99 will get you all three gigs of Beautiful Katamari.

Resident Evil 5, while arguably not as good as the title that came before it, is a no-brainer for fans of actions games. When we reviewed the game last year, we urged readers to "buy it," and that recommendation still stands. However, with the impending release of Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition (which will run you $49.99 at retail), you might want to just hold off.

Namco Bandai's Beautiful Katamari is... well, it's a Katamari game and, yes, it's beautiful on the Xbox 360.

Let me ask -- has anyone purchased these Games on Demand, or are you finding that they're hitting the service so late you already own them by the time they're available? Personally, I haven't bought a single one. It's not that I have anything against the distribution model; in fact, I'd rather be done with physical media sooner rather than later. But can we get some day-and-date releases on the service already? I need more reasons not to leave the house, so help me out, Microsoft.
