PS3 Resident Evil 5 demo available now

Xbox 360 sampler downloaded by 1.8m.

The Resident Evil 5 demo can now be downloaded from the PlayStation Store.

Its 942MB arrival comes a few days behind Xbox 360, which had it last Thursday.

Since then, Microsoft has said more than 1.8 million people have tried the spooky shooter - and over 1.3 million of those during the first three days.

The Resident Evil 5 demo lets players battle through couple of levels from the full game, either alone with a computer-controlled companion, Sheva, or with a friend taking control of her in split-screen or online co-op.

Resident Evil 5 launches for Xbox 360 and PS3 on 13th March, leaving plenty of time to explore the demo. It's not a race.
