Burnout demo on 360 Live

Battlefield 2 to follow.

Those of you resisting the temptation to pick up Burnout: Revenge on Xbox 360 can push yourself closer to the brink (of buying it or, if you already have the Xbox one, of shouting purple words at Electronic Arts) by checking out a new demo on Marketplace today. We haven't had a chance to check it out ourselves yet, but it weighs in at about 550MB.

That won't be all for EA this week either - if you check in again on March 24th, you should be able to have a pop at Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. And when we say "have a pop" we obviously mean "play it a bit", not "say something about its Mum". Although we'll obviously be comparing it to its spiritual mother, the PC epic Battlefield 2, when we take it apart ahead of its release.

Burnout: Revenge is out now on Xbox 360 and reviewed elsewhere on the site. Battlefield 2: Modern Combat is due out on April 14th.
