Resident Evil 5 Demo Early Next Year?

Perhaps surprisingly - although certainly not unfortunately - EA's Dead Space is already starting to rake in the high praise, and in the first review, it says "EA could teach Capcom a thing or three about survival/horror." Well, Capcom hasn't come forth with their next-gen effort yet...

It's not far off, though, and we may get a chance to play it sooner than you think. According to GameCenterOnline, the latest edition of GamesTM magazine states that Capcom will release a playable demo of Resident Evil 5 some time in early 2009. This would make our month if it dropped in January, especially if we're still on a survival/horror high from Dead Space. Unfortunately, the magazine didn't provide any additional details on this mystery demo, but we get the feeling it'll be something attendees may have seen at either E3 or TGS. Of course, it's one thing to see it and quite another thing to play it, which is why we'll be scanning about for any new information concerning a RE5 demo. Depending on how secret they want to be, Capcom is usually pretty good about clarifying rumors or vague announcements. So stay tuned on that.

Some fans were super disappointed that RE5 didn't make it out in 2008, but given the gigantic number of games on tap for the holiday season, could we even fit the damn thing in? Hell, we've already forgotten about Killzone 2; we have Resistance 2 in November; who wants both at the same time?! Too many games...not that we're complaining.

I haven't forgotten about Killzone 2. I might even be more hyped on that then R2. And thinking of all the great games coming out this holiday and all of 09. I dont think ill have any money left at the end of next year.

Im a big fan of the RE series, but Im already for games now. My mind is focused on R2, Killzone, LBP, Silent Hill, Midnight Club, Dead Space, and yes even Bioshock. (Im kissing some major behind so my wife will go along with it.) Im Sooo gonna be broke.

Regardless of a demo or not, I am certain this is a must-own title.
