, also happens to have certain wide appeal. On Xbox Live, over a million people have downloaded the demo, which is currently the most of the year. Sure, the year just started, but that's a high point to set so early.
Not only that, but Capcom let us know that according to Microsoft, it's also the fastest downloaded demo on XBL, reaching its numbers faster than anyone else. Guess everyone wanted to see if the game was a hit or miss. Good thing the demo delivered.

Still, some of the questions are almost too weird to lie about, like how "80 per cent of Brits believe that Hilary Clinton is sexier than Margaret Thatcher".
