    This is the final game... Pretty sure this is against the rules.

    I don't doubt they are review discs, however the contents uploaded here are 1:1 that of the final game.
    The xex is compiled 1 hour before the final build was compiled. Every other byte in the xex is the same.

    From the files i've looked into, they too have a comparison byte match 1:1.
    Those discs are pretty neat, but i'm afraid they are "samples" at best.

    I'd say this is rather uncommon, as most _RED checkdiscs are typically a "Preview" .. From what i've seen* - The Dead Rising checkdisc i have is marked _RED and it is 1 month before the final game was compiled. Perhaps Turn10 did theirs a bit differently.

    No not all of them are like this. I have a few review builds dated months prior to release, but it's essentially the same content

    Good question
    Turns out I only have ones with Preview or SAMPLE for 360. I have a few PS3 review builds but guess i remembered things incorrectly.

    That doesnt change that it should still be a few months or less that review builds are basically retail.
    Remember, it takes some time to get them to the replication plants and to ship out so often times a build like 2 months prior to release is a release build. Maybe not retail in terms of main executable signature or format but content wise it usually will be.

    Its put me off uploading review game. I can not check the next game (farcry 2) im uploading as i do not have a retail copy but the devkit xex date is Fri Sep 19th 2008. The disc says pReview. Is this a review build ?

    You should go by release date on games to determine if you think it's worth it.
    Far Cry 2 Initial release date: NA October 21, 2008; AU October 23, 2008; EU October 24, 2008

    A review build I have for WWE'13 is 3 days before release. A debug build of the same game is dated 6 days before release.
    A build with no indicator of build type is 3 months before release date with nothing changed. Another that's 1 month before release but also has nothing changed.
    I have another that's 2 months before release date with HUGE differences from release.

    The best indicator you have is date and other information on the disc. Review, Preview, Test, _RED, _GREEN all MIGHT not matter. Sometimes it does but sometimes it doesnt. If the person you're getting it from can show it running then that's even better.
