‘RE5′ demo coming soon

Fans can get a taste of the latest installment in Capcom’s survival horror franchise Jan. 26 when a demo of “Resident Evil 5” arrives on Xbox Live.
The demo is exclusive to the Xbox 360, at least for a week. A PlayStation 3 demo should be available to download on the PSN the first week of February.

The demo offers both single and co-op play through two full sections of the game. It will also let gamers experience a new “Gears of War”-esque control scheme that’s optional in the final product.

“Resident Evil 5” arrives on store shelves Friday, March 13.
