Hitman: BM demo patched

Framerate bug sorted out.

Today sees the release of Hitman: Blood Money on PC, PS2, Xbox and Xbox 360 - and to celebrate, Eidos has released a playable demo of the game.

They've also released a patch for it, which is designed to "address the constant low framerate bug that some users have been experiencing on certain hardware configurations," apparently. You can download both the demo and the patch over at 3D Gamers.

Alternatively, Xbox 360 owners can access the demo via Xbox Live - make sure you've got plenty of space on that hard drive though, since it's a hefty 780MB in size.

Hitman: Blood Money is in the shops right now, probably on its very own shelf, or perhaps even in the window and everything.
