As mentioned in the topic, what are these? I've heard people refering to "Turok 2 kiosk demo" as "Turok 2 beta" - is this game a beta or a demo Rolling Eyes ?

One possibility is that the cart was used in demo machines, set up in stores to sell more games, of course. Or maybe from E3 or something.

I would suspect beta to mean an unfinished copy, which differs in some way from the retail copies.
And that a kiosk demo would be the one described above.
But sometimes it's hard to tell which it is.

A Kiosk demo is a display demo used in a display stand. (normaly found in a store, but also at game/trade shows)

The physical cart for these are easy to recognize by a "DEMO ONLY - NOT FOR RESALE" label on the front artwork.

Often these are the same as the retail versions of a game, but in some cases, they offer limited gameplay, like the Majora's Mask Kiosk demo which lets you play specific sequences/areas from the game, selected from a menu.

I think the Turok 2 demo was like that too, and only had a few areas available for testing in the Kiosk demo version.


And as for Turok betas, I swear to god that at some point, it's gonna be easier to get ahold of work in progress copies of Turok games for the N64 than retail versions.

I bet it's a solid and good three figured number by now for the amount of different Turok/Acclaim N64 work-in-progress/beta carts I've seen on ebay and on collector's lists through the past few years

This demo is indeed limited, a friend of mine owns one and iirc he said it had 3 levels. They popped up rather often on eBay the past few months.

Anyways, if you ever see the kiosk version of Pokemon Stadium floating around on the net, it's actually a bad dump. And really, it should have been identical to the final version, except for it crashing when certain pokemon are used. The actual cartridge in the kiosk didn't do that. Oops, too late. Pokemon suck anyway.


Damn! And I thought this was a major difference between kiosk demo and the retail version Rolling Eyes .

Thanx for the replys!

Hi,
Can someone PLEASE provide me a link where I can download ALL of the n64 Kiosk Games? It would also be nice if Jurai could dump his banjo kazzoie kiosk cart. If they havent been dumped yet, Please do so! Smile

Also, where can I download any of the dumped dev games? I am sure some of you have bought them on ebay or know someone who has, so please provide a link! Very Happy

I personally own the Banjo Tooie Kiosk cartridge, but it seems its excactly the same as the original! Sad

Thanks
