Buy Dragon’s Dogma Get Resident Evil 6 Demo – Xbox 360 Owners Really Benefit

The long story ultra short, pick up Dragon’s Dogma on May 22nd and you’ll receive a promotional code to download the demo for Resident Evil 6.  The big news is that if you happen to purchase the Xbox 360 version of the game you’ll get the demo 60 days before everyone else.  The press release says…

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.

 

Pretty wild no?  PS3 owners can download the demo starting September 4th in North America.  Talk about a sweet exclusive.  I guess that confirms which version I’ll be picking up.

I personally haven’t been following Dragon’s Dogma much, but now I’ve suddenly become interested.  Wonder why ;)  So are you guys going to check this one out now that you know about the RE demo?

  1. I am REALLY excited for this. Not just for the RE6 demo, which I’m very interested in, but also because I’ve been following Dragon’s Dogma and it looks like a game I will really enjoy. I have a hard time enjoying the typical swords-and-sorcery RPG that saturates the Western RPG market, a lot of them tend to feel similar, and the combat tends to be sub-par. Especially in the Elder Scrolls series, the combat is just awful. Dragon’s Dogma looks to finally extend a hand to me, a guy who likes action games, and get me interested more in the kind of open-world fantasy RPG design. The combat looks dynamic and interesting, something that may as well been pulled out of Devil May Cry. I think that’s cool.

    I’m thinking this is a pretty great year for Capcom:
    -Dragon’s Dogma looks like a satisfying action/RPG (I’ve heard it’s also the most expensive/ambitious game the company has developed on record so far).
    -Resident Evil Revelations, Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City…it’s RE overload this year! And all of these games look great, for different reasons!
    -Gyakuten Saiban 5 (Ace Attorney) was announced!
    -Street Fighter X Tekken looks like great fun.
    -Asura’s Wrath demo was ridiculously fun and over-the-top, I’m excited for the main game.

    Now they just need to localize Layton vs. Ace Attorney and developer something for Mega Man fans (Legends 3 and X9 please!) and I’ll be incredibly satisfied.

  2. Tim if you are thinking in getting dragons dogma for the reasons explain above by yourself, also try Kingdoms of amalur, at least try the demo nad if it is your thing well get it, i got the impression that you will like it too, i really like it, IMO is what fable 2 and 3 should have been in the first place, it has good combat, nice graphics style very colorful, and a nice open world, i think it borrows a lot for other games, but i think it does it in the darksiders kind of way.
