Def Jam demo redated

Electronic Arts reschedules release of Def Jam: Icon demo for Xbox 360 to tomorrow; features of trial remain the same.


Gamers anxiously awaiting their chance to sucker punch some of hip-hop's biggest stars can finally breathe a sigh a relief. The demo for Def Jam: Icon, which was announced and quickly delayed in late January, now has a new release date.

The demo will appear on Xbox Live Marketplace tomorrow, according to EA. The details of the demo haven't changed; it will feature the Gas Station level and include two playable characters, T.I. and Outkast's Big Boi. Both artists will also have a song included in the demo. The full game will feature 29 songs, and the ability to create a custom soundtrack on the Xbox 360 version.

Def Jam: Icon is scheduled for release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on March 6 in North America and on March 16 in Europe. For more information, read GameSpot's previous coverage.
