Dragon's Dogma Graced With Resident Evil 6 Demo

How many people have bought a game just to play an included demo? Okay, not so much this generation, what with demos landing on the PSN and XBLA every week, but you did it in the past, right?

Heck, I still remember getting Resident Evil: Code Veronica X for the PS2 (already played the hell out of RE:CV on the Dreamcast) just so I could play the Devil May Cry demo. About 20% of the reason I got Dragon Quest VIII was that Final Fantasy XII demo; as it turned out, DQVIII was one of my favorite RPGs of the generation.

But anyway, Capcom has announced that Dragon's Dogma will launch in North America on May 22 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; it'll release three days later in Europe. Furthermore, if you purchase the game, you will get a chance to play the freshly announced Resident Evil 6 early. But PlayStation 3 fans might be a little miffed, as Xbox 360 owners get the nod this time around.

The voucher for that demo can be redeemed on the Xbox Live Marketplace on July 3, but PS3 owners have to wait until September 4 before they can test out the sample. RE6 is slated for November 20. For more on Dragon's Dogma, be sure to check out our preview, and here's the new story trailer.

If I didn't end up buying XIII-2 on Day1 I'd call you out for being blind to the fact that RE6 is just further from what made RE a great series than RE5 was.

Why so many thumbs down for vboy . I think he his right all the way when based on comparing it ro re5 .

He don t say it s 100 percentlike the old RE games but that it s a little more like the good old franchise root then re5 was .

At the very least , it do look way more fun then RE 5 was .

Lol, Whatever Crapcom. I'ma borrow this from a friend anyways. It's these kinds of Sony fan alienating tactics that have stopped me from paying for your games since RE5.

Someone send Capcom Curt Schilling's post. They're giving me little incentive to buy the game new. Now I'd rather buy it used and give my money to amazon.

Two months? I sense that large bags of money exchanged hands somewhere.

Well, looks like RE6 will be my first used game buy this gen. Does Crapcom know demos are for selling games? You would think they'd want as many people to try it as possible. I have zero tolerance for this kinda crap practice!

Pretty lame, but to be honest I'm more interested in Dragon's Dogma. That game has tons of potential and caught my eye immediately

Capcom believes that the 360 is the way to go.

Must be the "gun" thing.

<<<<Capcom believes that the 360 is the way to go.>>>>

Must be the "MS Sludge Fund" thing.
(especially seeing how buying their way into time DLC & exclusives is about the only constant that they're still good at anymore).

See, easily corrected.

Why is everyone mad? The ps3 version of street fighter X tekken has 5 exclusive characters, 2 of which could have been multiplat. But yeah they kind of screw sony fans this gen.

Wasn't the oringinal Resident Evil game established on the ps1 console? So this is crazy to me. Osaka Japan, is Capcoms Head quarters and Tokyo Japan is Sony head quarters Nice loyalty!!! Cap! What a joke. A Grand Father of consoles get's put up under a bus. MS is lazy and don't produce noting as far as exclusives. Yet this blind devotion to this Xbox is confusing. Gamers need to start holding Ms accountable and not support there bubble gum. In my opinion Ps3 should have been lead console for new Resident game.

It's pure business. No need to take it personal. They don't.

I actually look forward to RE6, and don't mind one single tiny bit if I have to wait for a demo. It's just a demo, for crying out loud.

So many people are mad about getting the demo later but what i wonder is how many of you were even interested in dragon dogma .

I m willing to bet 3/4 of you would not even buy it thus not be able to play the demo anyway .

I m also willing to bet not many of the complainer would refuse a big sum of money to do the same kind of move .
