The day was July 6th, 2001, a little over 10 months after I got my PS2. It was a normal day, nothing special going on. But that all changed when I went out to get the mail. I casually opened up my mailbox and took out what was inside. While walking back to the house, I was looking through it and I saw this hard black thin thing in the pile. I took it out and what I saw would forever change my life (well... maybe not, but it was a dramatic experience nevertheless). I finally received my PS2 demo disk from Sony!

So here are some screens of what the holder of the demo disk looks like:

Still, it's much better than the demos of the past for the PSX. The quality of the videos has increased 10 fold (we all remember how incredibly awful the videos of old looked) and the main menu is stylish and loading times are a breeze.

Overall Demo Disk Rating (out of 10): 8.5
