Let’s face it, if the PlayStation 3 ships without any kind of demo disc, there’ll be uproar. Given Sony’s record with bundled console/disc packages at the PlayStation and PS2’s respective launches (dinosaurs and bathroom sinks, remember?) don’t expect to be able to play a one level demo of Resistance or Genji 2 or Warhawk.
Anyway, never mind the games – the rumour mill creaks into gear today with much Internet discussion regarding the possible inclusion of a Blu-ray demo disc designed to erm, demonstrate how lush films can look given the high-def treatment. Marvel at the shape and shine of Kate Beckinsale’s leather-clad arse in Underworld Evolution? Don’t mind if we do. Marvel at the shape – just the shape - of Natasha Henstridge in Species? Oh, alright then. ?HD in Memento in on going what’s out work and try. Well very.
These and more – Basic Instinct 2, xXx, RV, Training Day, Hitch, Resident Evil Apocalypse, Black Hawk Down, Layer Cake and Saw to name a few – could well be available to sample with the PS3 launch. Then again, maybe not.
