Left 4 Dead 2 demo on Xbox Live for all Gold members

Previously available for pre-orders only, Left 4 Dead 2‘s demo is now on Xbox Live for all Gold subscribers, because taking demos away from Silver members is a great way to make Gold appear more valuable than it is. The demo should give you a good idea of what to expect in Valve’s soon-to-be successful zombie sequel — more of the same, but even better.

At the time of writing, I can see the demo on Xbox Live, but I keep getting an error message. Either that means too many people are downloading it, or Microsoft has screwed up for everyone as usual. In any case, it’s there, but you might have to be patient.

Now I will continue getting myself excited for the game.
