THE BUZZ: Capcom has announced a way for Resident Evil fans to get an the first demo for Resident Evil 6 before release.

The publisher recently announced the official release date of Dragon’s Dogma, May 22 in North America and May 25 in Europe for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. As an added bonus it was also revealed that those who purchase the game on Xbox 360 will have an opportunity to experience a playable demo of Resident Evil 6 before anyone else, ahead of the game’s release on November 20. The release reads: ”Purchasers of the Xbox 360 version of Dragon’s Dogma will be able to redeem this token and download the Resident Evil 6 demo globally on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360 60 days earlier than any other platform starting on July 3.”

The PlayStation 3 version will be available from September 4.

EGM’s TAKE: It looks like most of Dragon’s Dogma’s sales are going to be on the Xbox 360 based on this information. Who’s going to pass up the opportunity to play one of this years most anticipated titles. This also means a massive spike in sales for the game, which will probably get at least 25% extra sales minimum after this announcement. Cross promotion has always been a clever marketing strategy for the bigger publishers and long may it continue.

Has this announcement convinced you to buy Dragon’s Dogma? Leave a comment below.
