    Hello,

    I can have Test Sample Disc on PS3 (the Silver one)

    The seller said me the disc is debug but he has no proof, no build date.

    Did you see Test/sample Disc with Debug Menu ? (i already ask to one member and i agree with him it's like retail disc but i need to be 100% sure)

    How much for Test/sample Disc ?

    Thanks

    Do you have any pictues?
    You can load the disc in a PC drive and examine the data as well (files, file date)

    Silver Discs for PS3 are not common, but they do exist.

    By "Debug", you mean "with debug menu/options" ? Not necessary.
    It's possible, but it could be just preview content without hot things in it. Ask the seller to give you proofs of content, screenshots or videos where you can see debug things.

    I think I have PS3 discs like this, although I'm not home to check. Don't remember if its a promo or "debug" disc. Do you have a retail PS3 to try it on?

    A Silver should work on a retail but not 100% on this. My GC/360 Silvers/CheckDisks do so I suspect it will.

    I have Retail PS3 est Test PS3, but i don't have disc, seller have it, i'm waiting an answer.

    but for me this silver disc is for production then 100% Retail never debug menu on it and any difference with retail disc. I would to know if someone have PS3 Test/Sample with debug or not.

    Thanks :)

    It all depends on the disc, but usually not debug. I had a Killzone 2 that wouldnt be updated, so it couldnt be played online. But it worked on a retail system.

    There is a ton of Heavy Rain builds floating about now, some on discs and some on PS3 Test/Tool. This is not worth purchasing for that price. Maybe for 1/5 - 1/10 of that price. Then again, worth is a matter of opinion.

    I have a Move Edition dev disc and an E3 build (not selling), but I've heard from people in chat who have other versions.

    If memory serves me correctly those are just test production run disc (a dev can order them at any time during late stage development). I believe they are always signed and will work on a retail unit (no reason to go this route for use on a test kit when you could just do a normal BR-R). You could get these for PSP as well (we did them at work to test how fast/slow our loading times were since the DVD drive on a psp devkit is not accurate to what it would be like on a UMD).

    As for if they have debug stuff on them, that is entirely up to if the dev left something there or not.

    Thanks subbie, now I remember where I had seen that silver/textlayout before, on a PSP disc! I bought one back in may last year. The pic is from that ebay auction (only small thumbnail pic left now) so not at home to take photo of it:

    That is a Test/Sample version of "GUN". It has an extensive debug menu and if I remember correctly many of the cutscenes are either missing or contain placeholder graphics.
