One week after Xbox Live Gold members get a crack at it, Playstation 3 owners will get a chance to try their free online Resident Evil 5 demo. This should come as a sigh of relief to PS3 owners, who previously thought they would never get a crack at trying the game before it’s release.
The demo for 360 gold members still hits January 26th, and Resident Evil 5 is slated for a March 13th release. There has been some outrage lately over Microsoft making demos that should be free available only to Gold members. However, Sony has recently sanctioned this, adding pre-release demos only to subscribers of the Playstation Store magazine, Qore. Demos are getting to be a hectic business nowadays, having to reserve games, subscribe to online magazines, and buy premium services just to enjoy something that should be free. But then again, most demos before 5 years ago were only available through a disc in a magazine.
