Not to be outdone by the impending release of a beta on the PC, the Xbox 360 has secured some Battlefield Bad Company 2 action of its own, with the surprise release of a demo.

Originally appearing in Australia overnight, the demo has now been downloaded - and played - by people all over the world. People who care not for the fact the demo wasn't supposed to be out until February 4; it's out now, servers are working, so they're going at it.

If you're worried about it being locked down by EA and/or Microsoft, don't sweat it: the early release has the official blessing of DICE, so have at it.

I pre-ordered the PC of steam and finally managed to play the beta this morning and am terribly underwhelmed by it. I still think MW2 is visually more impressive and a far smoother engine to play aside from all the destructive scenery.

I also grabbed the xbox demo and have to say that this is the superior version in my opinion of the two. Maybe its because i am used to BFBC1 and 1943 on the xbox anyway but even visually i think it runs better on the console.

Now i just need to figure out if i can cancel my pre-order off steam even though i have downloaded the beta.
