With GamesCom 2009 currently underway in the far-off land of Germany, both Capcom and Eidos have opted to go above and beyond the traditional media pleasantry of such conventions by providing the rest of us with something to play, not just look at.
One of these things is not like the other.
Eidos' offering comes in the form of a sample for Mini Ninjas, the latest from Hitman developer IO Interactive. The demo is now available for PC via FileShack and for the Xbox 360 through Xbox Live, with the PlayStation 3 demo out tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Capcom has delivered a demo of Lost Planet 2 for Xbox 360. Please note that both Xbox 360 demos will be restricted to Xbox Live Gold members for a week, until August 26, at which point they'll be available to those with free Silver accounts.
