Resident Evil 5 US demo is now on Xbox Live

It’s been quite a wait, but the US version of Capcom’s Resident Evil 5 is now available on Xbox Live in swanky demo form. While many of you played the game during its stint on Japanese Live accounts, a good number of gamers still haven’t had a taste of Chris Redfield’s sultry ethnic cleansing adventure. Now’s the chance for Americans and Europeans who couldn’t be bothered to make a fake JP account to get in on the action.

I am going to stop writing this now so I can go and download it. If you’ve already played it, feel free to share your views. Opinions were mixed when the Japanese demo hit, mainly thanks to the control scheme. Here’s hoping Resident Evil 5 can still meet expectations. 

Right, seriously stopping now.
