Resi 5 demo announcement soon?

But game may not require PS3 install.

Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi has hinted that a playable demo of Capcom's upcoming survival horror game will be announced soon.

"We'll be making an announcement about that relatively soon," he told Eurogamer, in comments relayed by this morning's Resident Evil 5 hands-on preview. Downloadable content is also "possible", he said.

One thing we might not be seeing, however, is a mandatory hard-disk install for Resi 5. Capcom took a bit of a hammering for the duration and size of the Devil May Cry 4 installation, and it sounds as though the publisher paid attention to feedback.

"We're still working on those technical elements in the last couple of months, but we can tell you that if users are dissatisfied with that kind of thing, then it's certainly something we keep in mind when we develop," he said. "We'll do our best to come up with something that users will not criticise, but love..."
