We're all good and excited for the November 20 release of Resident Evil 6, right? How would you like to try the game before then? Perhaps as soon as July? You'll have that option, provided that you're an Xbox 360 user who is willing to buy Capcom's action-RPG Dragon's Dogma on May 22.
The publisher confirms that Xbox 360 users will get early access to the demo with the purchase of the May release. The demo will be available for those folks starting on July 3. PlayStation 3 users will have to wait until September 4 for that demo access, provided that they too purchase Dragon's Dogma.
Wait, what? Yes: PS3 users will still need to buy the game to have less early "early access" to the RE6 demo. No, it doesn't make a lot of sense. Capcom reportedly described the move to Boxden (via CVG) as "a strategic business decision." Which realy doesn't tell us anything more, does it?
