Microsoft is currently fixing a mistake made with the Beautiful katamari demo announced yesterday, which was accidentally made only available to Silver Live members.

“There’s a Beautiful Katamari demo available on marketplace now, but there’s been a wee mistake somewhere along the line and at the moment it’s only available for Silver members. It’ll be fixed soon though, at which point it’ll only be available to Gold members for the next week – and then open for everyone,” said Microsoft Europe’s community manager Graeme Boyd in a blog post. “Hold tight Gold members, and if you’re a Silver member and you fancy rolling around in one of the funniest and most surreal gaming experiences ever, get your skates on.”

The full game releases for Xbox 360 in Europe in March.
