http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3160582, the downloadable demo for 2K Games' http://www.1up.com/do/reviewPage?cId=3160484 first-person shooter http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3138127 would follow its late June retail release by at least a couple of weeks. And sure enough, here it is.

http://www.majornelson.com/archive/2007/07/20/demo-the-darkness.aspx reports that the Xbox 360 demo is single-player only, but with three playable stages, it should give players a well-rounded taste of what to expect from the complete game. As with yesterday's http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3161408, this one also weighs in at nearly 1.3GB, so consider grabbing lunch or running errands as it creeps into your hard drive.

North American PlayStation 3 owners will have to sit this one out for the time being, but lucky European players can hop onto the PlayStation Network and grab their own three-level, 1.44GB single-player demo. We'll be sure to update if SCEA follows suit with an American version.
