While North American gamers still have to pre-order Red Faction: Guerrilla through GameStop to gain early access to the demo, lucky Europeans need look no further than their web browsers.

GameStops across North America are reporting the arrival of demo codes for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Red Faction: Guerrilla, handed over upon receipt of $5 or more down towards the purchase of the game. European fans, however, need not set foot upon retail ground, as THQ offers them single player demo codes in exchange for signing up to the MyTHQ section of their website. The publisher warns that a limited number of codes are available, so you might want to hurry, lest you get lost in the mad rush.

The codes are locked to European PlayStation Network and Xbox Live accounts, unfortunately, so unless you know some magical way around regional restrictions, this offer is for Euro eyes online.
