So a couple years back, I came across this video titled "Silver's voice revealed PS3 version". I was curious because the upload date was before the game's release, so, intrigued, I opened it. I was curious..where did the footage come from? There's a plethora of differences here like the Homing Attack and Action Gauge being just like the XBL demo, but the difference between this video and the demo is that the HUD isn't aligned to the edge, the Life icon switches when playing with a different character, and the title screen has the final His World theme. My friend at the time, Jeracyclo Gaming, and I both reuploaded this footage and tried asking OP where they got the footage and if we could get our hands on the build, but, as expected, no answer. The video was a decade old and the uploader had gone MIA. After a good while, I didn't think much of it and thought that maybe it was some released footage from somewhere (although I still wanted to know from where). But then today I came across this. Now things are getting weird. Where were these people getting their hands on these builds? Maybe this is a game store video we're looking at since there's another screen next to the one the person's recording showing Sonic's, but I'm not exactly sure. This looks to be the same build as the XBL demo (cornered HUD, Sonic Life icon is universal, etc), but there's some differences I noticed. Most jarringly, Shadow's going through a complete different version of Kingdom Valley. It's basically Sonic's third section but with different enemy placements, and the version seems to be for PS3. Also, the Action Gauge power-up doesn't completely fill up his meter, interestingly enough. It has glitches similar to the demo as well. I reposted it to YouTube so that more people would see it, and I explained the differences there. My question is, however, where did these videos come from? And how were these builds and demos being distributed? I'm just shocked because I've never seen anyone talk about this. If game stores at the time were showing previews, why hasn't anyone mentioned that before? Please, if anyone has any sort of explanation or answers, those would be appreciated. And I'd love if we'd be able to get our hands on a beta build. EDIT: so I think we all can tell that the second video is definitely the TGS 2006 demo. the first video still remains a mystery.
