No. ... but I'm wondering aloud for some plausibility of the possibility.  Is that 1.9 GB for Prologue over PSN the full Spec III download or does it have an update after that initial download?

Hmmm, it looks like it's the original version.  The info says over 60 cars etc.  It doesn't say explicitly if it's spec II or spec III.

Im just thinking out loud here....

 

I would assume that Best Buy and Sony had some sort of contract to allow BB to be an exclusive Demo retailer. Now. With this demo leaked early and people being able to play that means that contract has been broken.

 

Does this leave Sony open to make the Demo Available to - at the very least - Playstation plus members?

 

Just a thought

If it is going to happen for Plus members, then that means it already was in the works, a long time ago.

Well I hope that Sony rep arrives to Eugene soon, I would like to try the demo out like everyone else. The wait for this game is forever but in the end it was worth it all.

I just got back again from my local BestBuy. At first, they disputed the validity of my claim that there was actually a playable GT5 Demo at a BestBuy in Clackamas, OR.( Imagine that.....). I told them to feel free to either check the URL of this thread, which I had with me, or the url of the GTPlanet post with video, or better yet, call the store in Clackamas. The supervisor did not wish to talk to me in person about his matter. After a little bit, they came back and told me that the descision to put up the Demos at stores is totally the responsibility of the Sony Rep. They claimed that there was absolutely no way for them to tell when the Sony Rep would be at their store, if ever. So basically they have no idea when, if ever, they will get this Demo.

 

EDIT: TheMain reason was correcting spelling

Apparently Best Buy has terrible communication between Corporate and the stores, as well as between stores. I apologize.

Also, who speaks of themself in the third person?

Calvin, you owe me one for the hono(u)rable mention by Jordan over at GTPlanet.

 

"FatLeadFoot

Jordan, would you please mention Calvin for being the 2nd person to report this to GTP? He’s over at the US forums having a hissy fit for not being the first! LOL"
