It's pretty simple: Capcom
wants big numbers for it's Lost Planet 2
multiplayer demo, and is willing to put their money where their downloads are to make it happen. If the demo is downloaded 1,000,000 times (which seems a fairly easy number to reach) they'll donate $20,000 to Music for Relief charity. For each additional 500,000 downloads, they'll throw another $5k into the pot. Hard to say what the total downloads will be, but they'll stop counting on May 5th at midnight. I know I'm going to do this. Several sites are offering early entry codes (which has been active for the 360
for a few days, and for PS3
since yesterday). Hit the jump for more details.
