Resident Evil 5 Demo On Japanese Xbox Marketplace, Here's how to Get It

Shhh...I have a secret.  All those guys on the dirtbikes up there?  Yeah, they're rushing off to Xbox Live to download the recently released Resident Evil 5 Co-Op Demo.  Bad news for them, they won't find it.  Nope, they're heading the wrong way.  It's not on the US Marketplace or the European one.  Instead the devious forces at Capcom and Microsoft have hidden it deeply inside a mysterious place called Japan, a land filled with fat men in diapers and a tall rich bald white guy that the natives fear.

But fret not dear Co-Optians.  The folks at Siliconera have devised a scheme in which you, yes YOU, can get your hands on Resident Evil 5.  It won't be long now till you and your buddy will be blasting virally infected villagers. 

Update:  It appears this is now region locked by box.  We'll just have to wait for the US release of the demo.
