    Ok, I found a Sonic Rush prototype that has only one level. It wasn't sent to any magazines, but it appeared on E3. And yea, it's legit.

    The price is $600. My paypal is [email protected], for other payment types - PM me or email at [email protected]

    I know nothing else about the prototype, so please don't ask unnecessery questions.

    Thanks.

    Wasn't this the demo that you could download? Nothing's different, so imo it's not worth it.

    Download? I recall no such E3 demo. Isn't this the demo with Blaze appears in it?

    I think I'll donate, but when you get this demo, how are you going to dump it?

    I'm not very into DS stuff, so this is weird for me. Any proof or that?

    And I can dump everything with EPROMs inside :P

    Nice, I really love DS games. But what? One level in development for $600? You'd better ask in details about it. Is there a Blaze? What kind of music does it have (some music was scrapped)? If it's in a bit earlier stages of development, then we'll have one Sonic's special attack, that was deleted later.

    Well, for dumping mostly you'll need a DS itself + some flashcard equipment.

    And also, I guess not many people will be interested in this proto (asides from sprite-ripping, thoug), cause it requires DS itself to run, and not many people here have a DS, I guess.

    I can dump any prototypes with eproms inside, so that's not the case.

    Well, I figured out I'll ask the guy to lend me the cart for some cash, then I dump it, and return it to him.

    Besides Sonic Adventure the new games are of little interest to me prototype-wise... and one level for $600 would not be worth it; even for a level not seen in the final of the game

    I'm pretty sure that was a free downloadable demo at E3 2005. The only differences between that version and the final are the music, the title screen, and Blaze's life icon (it shows Sonic). Even the level layout was largely the same.

    Yeah, this ain't worth it. Unless it's that 2004 E3 demo...

    That would be fackin', and is among another holy grail of Sonic protos.

    I didn't know there was a downloadable demo at E3 2005 =O I just figured this was the 2004 demo, so I was like "WHY ARE YOU GUYS SAYING THIS ISN'T WORTH IT?"

    Yeah, if it's the 2004 demo, the "Slide rapidly from left to right" fully 3D thing, then that'd be a great rom to have.
    I think you really need to find out which one this is.

    I hadn't thought of that either. I was thinking of the demo from before Blaze was revealed, with the different music and Ryan Drummond.
     
  13. Whatever this proto is, I have a DS and a flash cart, so I could play it and record a video of the demo. But, $600...find out more information about this proto; otherwise, it's not worth it.

    If this is the E3 2004 (3D heroes-esque) proto, I'll do everything I can to donate. Seriously, let me know.

    Is there a video of that E3 2004 proto?
     
  16. I have a hunch I've seen a video of the 2004 demo before, but that was freakin' ages ago.

    He said "Sonic Rush", so that's certainly not it.

    Ok - it's the E3 2005 one. Kinda gay.

    So yea here are the two options:

    1. Someone gives me $600 and I dump the cart myself.
    2. Someone gives me $250 and the guy sends me the cart, and someone also dumps it for me (buying all the necessary dumping equipment would cost as much as buying the whole cart so there's no point in me doing that). The cart gets returned to the guy afterwards.

    I prefer 1, but I know it won't happen so yea.

    Oh and yea - me dumping the cart means damaging the cart (because I dump with an eprom programmer and the cart is 'sealed').

    If anyone's interested, tell me.

    No, thanks. This isn't worth $100.

    I happen to have DS flash equiptment, but not many do, so, and since there are no decent emulators, that causes instant issues.

    EDIT: Also, we have videos of that demo, and, other than the life icons, there are no major (visible) differences.

    There's at least some audible differences, according to what was said before.
