James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing [PS2/XBOX/GC – Beta]

James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing is a 2004 third-person shooter, developed by EA Redwood Shores and EA Canada for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and the GameCube. DCodes7 noticed some beta differences in the early screens  and videos released for the game:

  • Different and unused outfits worn by James bond
  • Different outfit for Jaws (beige shirt with brown pants & brown suspenders)
  • Beta enemy wearing a silver/platinum armor (not used in the final game)
  • Beta enemy wearing a grey/black hat (the hat is red in the final)
  • Various differences in the first trailer




Dead Space [X360/PS3/PC – Beta]

Dead Space is a third-person survival horror / action game, developed by Visceral Games (formerly known as EA Redwood Shores) for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. As we know the game was started with a Dead Space prototype for the original Xbox, but even the “next gen” version had some slightly differences in its beta build, as the models for the enemies and the main character (especially the armor). Also, the graphic / atmosphere of the game looks different: the final version is gloomier and less bright than some of the beta screens.

Dead Space [XBOX – Prototype]

Dead Space is a third-person survival horror-action gamereleased in October 2008, developed by EA Redwood Shores for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows, with a version for the Wii console expected for a Q3 2009 release. [Info from Wikipedia]

It seems that in 2006, the team was working on a Dead Space prototype for the original XBOX, but is currently unknow if the game was originally meant to be released on it or it was just a way to test the game before having the final 3D engine for the next gen consoles.

We can see a video from the XBOX 1 version at AreWeScaredYet‘s Youtube Channel: “this video was shown during a presentation called “Creating Horror and Immersion with the Art of Dead Space” by Art Director of the game Ian Milham at the Animex, games and animation festival in 2009. An article about the presentation can be read at awsy.tk
