EA demos hit XBL next week

Medal of Honor Airborne and SKATE demos expected on Xbox Live next week

Good news if you like to try before you buy (or just be a dirty cheap skate); Electronic Arts is set to release two demos on Xbox Live Marketplace next week, for Medal of Honor Airborne and SKATE.

Airborne is due for deployment on August 23 (that's Thursday) and lets you sample the Operation Husky mission, a joint allied operation into the island of Sicily with lots of anti-aircraft guns and presumably, Nazis.

The SKATE demo meanwhile was delayed from its original release this week due to technical problems (they forgot to make the online bit work), and we're promised it'll be online in "hopefully not more than a week".

SKATE, the proper version, is in the shops on September 21 (sent to die) while Airborne is out on September 7 - y'know, in case you want to spend some money.
