I played it at BB and there were NOTICeABLE frame rate issues.  Hopefully this is not a final version in the demo kiosks.

I would say yes most likely it is. We can hope though.

yea, the framerate problems are usually at the begining when all 20 or how many ever cars there are all on screen at the same time, than once you start seperating from the pack the slowdown stops. Its not a horrible slowdown but its definantly noticable.

Probably. I just played it at Best Buy earlier today. I went to check how many people were camping there. I live in Long Beach, Ca which is a huge city in Los Angeles county and there were about 10 people camping. It was a new best buy though.

Anyways I was really suprised by the demo. Even though I really haven't liked what I have heard about the PS3( $600, Blu-ray, the online part) I knew the system would have great graphics and a great processor. I was suprised when Motorstorm started up because the graphics weren't that good at all. The canyon had blurry flat textures and there was way too much blur. There were a bunch of jaggies but polishing probably comes at the end of making a game.

The race started up and the game chugged along. At first I thought my car just had bad acceleration but then I noticed that it was the framerate dropping substantially. After the take off it seemed to be alright except the game had no sense of speed. I played it for about a minute and went to go get Viva Pinata. Overall I thought it was a big let down.

Of course not, the devs still have a couple of months to finish it up!

I would assume that it is the same demo.
 
As for framerate drops, the only noticeable one was when all the cars were at the starting line, and when they just started to move.
 
About 5 seconds into the race, and it goes back up.

I've played both versions and the in-store demo is much older than the PS3 demo build... The graphics are sharper and there is no slowdown.
