Resident Evil 5 developed by Capcom is breaking records already. The 360 version of the demo was downloaded 1.8 million times in the week after it’s release in North America and Europe and is now the top demo launch on Xbox Live. The old record holder, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed took 8 days to reach a million downloads.
I was shocked with the numbers, not that I don’t like the Resident Evil Series but I didn’t feel it was going to offer anything that the other installments didn’t have so I skipped the demo and planned to rent anyway and with all the talk about the mechanics of the game I figured it was like the rest, but a lot of other people obviously wanted to see for themselves by the number of downloads.
Resident Evil 5 is set to hit the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 March 13th.
