As you might have heard; the singeplayer demo for Rainbow Six: Vegas is set for a release on the Xbox Live Marketplace tomorrow. However, American gamers might be left out, a press release on the Ubisoft UK says states that the “demo will be available on the European Xbox Live Marketplace on 23rd October, 2006″. There’s no word on the demo on the Ubisoft US site.
Update: the demo will hit the Marketplace around 6pm CET!

Kicking off the countdown to the gameâ€™s release, Ubisoft announced today that the single player playable demo of Tom Clancyâ€™s Rainbow SixÂ® Vegas for the Xbox 360â„˘ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft will be made available to consumers. The Xbox 360â„˘ demo will be available on the European Xbox Liveâ„˘ Marketplaceâ„˘ on 23rd October, 2006.
The single player demo features part of the â€śDanteâ€™s Casinoâ€ť level of the single player mission. Players will Observe, Plan and Assault (O.P.A.) their way through the Gothic-themed casino that is under construction and believed to be a hideout for the terrorist leaders.
Tom Clancyâ€™s Rainbow SixÂ® Vegas will ship worldwide this Autumn 2006 on Xbox 360, Games for Windows and the PlayStation Portable (PSPâ„˘) while the PlayStationÂ®3 will be available at European launch.
It might be nothing but better safe than sorry. So I suggest you guys use this lazy Sunday to set up an European Xbox Live account. Head over to our Wiki for directions on how to do this.
