A prototype of Area 51 for the PlayStation 2.


  • The game starts on a SCE Demo Disc SDK NTSC Test Menu
  • In the menu, it is possible to configure the possible playtime among other things
  • Freezes during boot up because the disc was mastered as CD, while it's supposed to be a DVD, dump issue (unlikely, as it was dumped in both programs with identical output)
  • To bypass the freeze, apply the xDelta patch.
  • Built three weeks before the final build of the demo.
  • No obvious visible differences from the final demo.
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable (in PCSX2): Yes (as of March 17, 2021).
    • Game contains dongle protection: No.
