How To Play the Resident Evil 5 Demo Righ Now 10 years 10 months ago #353096

(Just incase the article gets pulled)How to Download the Resident Evil 5 Demo Right Nowby Eric BushIt's a great day to be a gamer! The long-awaited Resident Evil 5 demo has finally gone live across the ocean onto the Japanese Xbox LIVE Marketplace; thankfully PlanetXbox360 found directions to help all of our readers (no matter where you live) get in there and download it. We are not sure whether this is legal or not but for now just proceed with caution (although I have played the demo at E3 and it is freaking amazing):We have learned from multiple sources that this does in fact work as of right now and that the demo (425 MB) includes two different levels (both seen previously) and gamers can play by themselves or with another person in co-op mode (both online and offline).Quick Guide to Getting Japanese 360 Gold: * Go here: http://www.passport.net/ * Sign up a new account, Click "No, sign me up for a free MSN Hotmail e-mail address" * Pick JAPAN for your country, pick Tokyo-to as your Prefecture 150-2345 for your zipcode * Keep going, and then have it set you up with a @hotmail.com address. * Go to your 360, and create a new profile. Log in using your hotmail address on your 360, and it should set it to Japan. * If this is less than your 4th trial account you get gold free, so select yes when it asks you. (the RE5 demo requires Gold standing)How to actually download the demo via Japanese Xbox LIVE Marketplace: * Login to your Japanese Gold account * Once logged in press the xbox button in the middle of your controller to bring up the "old" dashboard * Navigate to the market place tab, then go to Game Marketplace * From Game Market place navigate all the way down to ALL GAMES * Then from ALL GAMES. Then go to "ALL" (instead of trying to understand japanese alphabet). Then just scroll through all the games until you get to BioHazzard 5 (it should be 270 of 40 * Once you get to BioHazzard 5, the first screen should say "Get Demo" and viola you are downloading the demo. Should be like 472 MBs.Now go have fun! Thanks to the crazy people at Neogaf for helping out with the instructions at 3:20 in the morning.

I think I'll just wait. Why not release this in the US too? Is RE5 coming out in Japan first?

After I have been playing Left 4 Dead, I now realize just how bad the RE series is.I loaded up the RE5 demo and played it but just can't seem to get back into it.It's grafxcally nice but the slow moving and lack of being able to gun and move is just so 1980's IMO. I'm glad that I tried the demo first because it just isn't my type of game.Some of you guys may enjoy it when it becomes available to download.

I know I'll like RE5 because it's more action and killing zombies than puzzle solving BS. Plus, it has co op.

So we should get the demo next week right? :) Isn't the demo supposed to be bundled with the CGI movie coming out later this year on BluRay?

The cool thing is that the Japenese RE5 demo has multi languages, English is available as one in the options setting. It takes some getting used to, as I mentioned before it is slow moving (as in the character) and you have some like helper chick at your side protecting your back.

That Demo is awesome!The controls you start out with "D" felt odd to me, i switched them to configuration "A" and i was set. The textures were really good, I can't wait for this game to come out.One thing though, it definitely feels slightly harder than Resident Evil 4, and again I am anxiously waiting for this game.:smt077
