Resident Evil 5 demo in early 2009 for US

Remember that Resident Evil 5 demo? The one that was originally up for grabs via Xbox Live for anyone with a Japanese account, but was taken down? Well, it's going to be officially released in the US in early 2009, according to Capcom.

The publisher held an RE5 co-op multiplayer event last night in San Francisco, at which we were given this vague date and played some previously unseen levels. Levels which we'll be able to share more on with you tomorrow. We also played the demo in question, which was in English and seemed perfectly fit to go live, er ... now.
