that would be a good prank…I am on my way to game store to see if i can pick one up:d

Yeah and you’ll probably end up with a ‘Viewtiful’ Black Eye when someone finds out their save games have disappeared AFTER you made them play that damn demo disc :g

Am I the only person to be surprised by the fact that Playstation software has the security rights to delete ANY file on a memory card? A proper security model would be software can ONLY access saved data that they created, or at least by that same company (ex: Capcom has access to all other Capcom saved files). And only the PS@ bootup screen has admin access to every file, for end user cleanup. Now you have to worry about every game you download as a malicious warez group could wipe your saved games just for kicks.

What is the full title of this demo?
