DmC demo hits PSN and Xbox Live next week

Can't wait to check out the reboot to Devil May Cry? Well the demo comes out next week on PSN and Xbox 360 so you should look out for that. To be exact, the demo will be out on November 20 for US and 21 for EU. 

The demo will contain two missions, and one of them will be a boss fight. A couple of difficulty modes will be included, as well as some weapon upgrades for us to experience, and some sort of secret during the demo. I wonder what that means.

Still a bit skeptical with Ninja Theory in charge of the Devil May Cry reboot, so I'm definitely going to look out for this demo next week. I'm really crossing my fingers hoping that the gameplay will feel like past Devil May Cry games, and if it does in the end, then they can change Dante as much as they want.

DmC is still next year, or rather, a few months away. It comes out on January 15, 2013 on Playstation 3 , and Xbox 360.

Together with the news of the demo, Capcom added more info on the Vergil DLC that was announced recently. Yes, its free for those who pre-ordered the game, but it won't be released on 'day one'. For the people who don't want to pre-order but plan on getting it after, it will cost you $8.99/720 MSP.

Resident Evil 6 demo coming on September 18

RE 6 If you're anxiously waiting for the release of Resident Evil 6, hopefully this bit of news will help the wait, or maybe make it worse. A demo of Resident Evil 6 will be released to the pubic on September 18  through PSN and Xbox 360. This won't be the same content released for Dragon's Dogma owners though. You will have new stages for Leon, Chris, and Jake, plus you can try the game's online co-op. 

In a report from Gematsu, Capcom has confirmed that this demo will be coming for US and Europe:

Capcom is pleased to confirm that from September 18, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners will be able to download a new Resident Evil 6 demo from Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Store. The new demo features completely different content to that contained in the previously released Resident Evil 6 demo exclusive to owners of the Xbox 360 version of Dragon’s Dogma.

Players will be able to dive into content from Resident Evil 6’s three main campaigns, either solo or partnering up via online co-op, and experience firsthand why it is one of this year’s most hotly anticipated titles.

Play as either Leon S. Kennedy or Helena Harper and further explore the dark corridors and moonlit grounds of Ivy University, swarming with the victims of the latest bioterrorist attack.

The action in Jake’s mission switches to the neon-lit streets of Lanshiang as he and Sherry Berkin fight off the J’avo, including their fully mutated forms. Be sure to check out Jake’s special hand-to- hand combat moves and Sherry’s stun baton as you struggle to stay alive.

Showcasing Resident Evil 6’s global setting, Chris Redfield and Piers Nivans head with fellow BSAA team members to the war-ravaged streets of Edonia. The amassed J’avo forces provide a stiff enough challenge, but that’s before the 3-story high B.O.W. Ogroman crashes the party. Select Piers for a slightly different weapons loadout than Chris including a sniper rifle with thermal scope.

In addition, for those owners of the PlayStation 3 version of Dragon’s Dogma, the exclusive demo previously only available for Xbox 360 owners will be available from September 5 to download via token redemption on the PlayStation Store.

Capcom also confirmed that owners of the Playstation 3 version of Dragon's Dogma can now claim your code and test out the demo that was already released in Xbox 360. I've tested my code and yes, you can now start downloading the demo.

For the rest of the world, you'll have to wait two weeks to try out the new demo.

Resident Evil 6 will be out on October 2, 2012 on Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. The PC version will be released in a later date.

PS3 and PC will have the demo in a few hours so patience guys, just a few more hours until we try that sweet tech blade and many more!

Just as Bioware promised, the Mass Effect 3 demo will include two single player missions, then a taste of  multiplayer coop which will be released to all players on February 17. For people with the early multiplayer access(via Battlefield 3, etc), you can go and try it out right now together with the single player. The mulitplayer of Mass Effect 3 is a co-op and the demo will include two maps: Slum and Noveria.

I've been trying to download the demo on my Xbox 360 but I keep getting "Can't download this" error right when  I start it. My guess is millions of fans are trying to download the exact same thing, so I'll try again in a few hours.

The single player demo is said to take around 1-2 hours of your time.
