Xbox 360 owners can get a sneak peek at the new Bourne Conspiracy game a few days before PS3 gamers will have the pleasure – and European gamers will have to wait even longer.

Sierra Entertainment has announced that demos for Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy game will be available in Australia, New Zealand, India and North America for download from the Xbox Live marketplace from 5 May. PS3 users will have to wait a whole 72 hours until 8 May for it to arrive on the PlayStation Network.

But bad news for European gamers. For some reason, Europe will have to wait until next week for the demo to be available for download, which is a bit annoying to say the least.

Still, developed in close partnership with both Ludlum Entertainment and Bourne screenwriter, Tony Gilroy, the game is sure to be a hit with anyone who was a fan of the novels, the movies, or both.

Clear 1.24GB of your hard drive if you fancy it trying out the demo – the full game will be available worldwide on 27 June. We won't have to wait for that one folks.
