All 7 Japanese Xbox 360 owners will be happy to know that the demo for Capcom's Resident Evil 5 is now available for Xbox LIVE Gold members in Japan.
Now, you could sit there all jealous that Japanese gamers get to play the demo... o
r, you could create a Japanese Xbox LIVE Gold account (you'll need a trial card) and get it yourself.
UPDATE: The demo has been disabled for non-Japanese Xbox 360's presumably through IP blocking. Did you manage to snag it while it worked?
