A prototype/preview build of BioShock 2 for the Xbox 360, from 2009-11-30.


Comparison of XEX binaries to the equivalent files in the NTSC release build:

  • Default.xex: 2009-11-30 11:37:50 vs 2009-12-08 23:54:07
  • Bioshock2_Xenon.xex: 2009-11-30 11:48:57 vs. 2009-12-09 00:05:00
  • Bioshock2MP_Xenon.xex: 2009-11-30 06:30:44 vs 2009-11-30 22:57:33

In other words, except for the multiplayer component, this prototype is from about a week before the NTSC release build.

This prototype dumped without errors, but was not playable on the two XDKs where it was tested. It either froze at a black screen, or displayed a loading bar and then caused a crash.
