Did anyone else happen to get the Playstation2 Holiday Demo disc?

I received it and when I played the ViewtifulJoe2 Demo, it erased all of the data on my memory card. :mad: So don't play it! Or take out your memory card first if you do play it!

I know it was because of the demo disc b/c Sony sent me a post card saying that it would happen. (only it was AFTER I had already played it! GRR)

I'm so glad I finished AoD before I got that disc! :eek:

Sony warns of major glitch in Holiday 2004 Demo Disc

SCEA alerts public that playing the Viewtiful Joe 2 demo will erase memory cards.
Over the past few weeks, members of the PlayStation Underground--Sony's US fan club--have been receiving copies of the Holiday 2004 Demo Disc. One of the premier demos on the disc was for Viewtiful Joe 2, which arrives on the console December 7.

Unfortunately, gamers eager to sample the cel-shaded beat-'em-up were in for a very nasty surprise. That's because the demo contained a glitch that will erase all saved games on the memory card or cards currently inserted in the console. Considering many PlayStation 2 owners are currently shooting their way through Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, which takes at least 40 hours to finish, the glitch sparked an uproar among PlayStation Underground members.

This week, Sony acknowledged the glitch via a mass e-mail to PlayStation Underground members. Besides conveying the corporation's "sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused," the e-mail also suggested that gamers "please remove your Memory Card(s) from your PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system before you load the Holiday 2004 Demo Disc." Speaking to GameSpot, a Sony rep clarified the situation further, saying, "You can play all of the demos including VJ2 as long as you remove the mem cards."

I heard about that. No worries! I don't play demos.

Viewtiful Joe 2... (If there was a drooling emoticon, I'd use it)

Yeah, Lonely Istari, we got that disk in the mail, too. This is the one time that I was glad my husband opens his mail and never does anything with it, lol!! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif I would have freaked if it erased my TR saves -- I just bought TR2,4, & 5 and just started saving TR 2 & 4. Ack! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/yikes.gif

I just got my demo disc in the mail today, and it doesn't have Viewtiful Joe 2 on it.....I'm guessing they removed it? I took my memory cards out before I popped the disc in anyway..... http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif
