Is this some sort of PS3 prototype disc?


Recommended Posts

Used to work at JJgames warehouse for a few years. Everything weird that came through I would purchase or they just let me have it.

This disc was one of those items. Played first 10 minutes and it seems like a final version. Sly 4 - Time bandits.

I have some more weird stuff I can’t find information on, but I’ll start with this.

Idk why the disc has a working title, yet the title on the PS3 comes up with the correct title.

Thank you for the information! I looked online and couldn’t find any ps3 discs that looked like this. I assume they were good about not letting copy’s getting out to the public.

What you're seeing there on the disc is kind of obvious of what it is.  I've seen those very discs before when I was at Midway nearly 20 years ago now.  That is usually used either for a late beta test to see how a potentially finished game would work on real hardware, or it could be a gold master of which real copies of the game would be burned.  Alpha to early-mid/later beta would not get this, just assumed hopefully finished to finished games would as it costs more than just running a file dump through a kit.

I’d love to hear more about your experiences at JJ Games! I used to get a bunch of items from them. Where did they usually get their stock, buying out rental stores and such? Does JJ Hendricks have a huge personal collection?
