NEO CONTRA Q4 REVIEW BUILD (SONY PLAYSTATION 2)

In 2005, user The_Brown_Eye/The_Dreaming_Eye sold a review disc of Neo Contra that had originally included paperwork; the paperwork ended up being sold separately, at a later date. The disc was among a lot that was slated to consist of Q4 betas. This indicates a build creation date between October and December.

Neo Contra was released in North America on October 19, which indicates that disc must have a build date within the same month. While this strongly suggests the disc to contain the final version, the presence of paperwork also provides the possibility of the presence of debug features and other differences.

It is currently unknown whether or not this build matches either that of the review disc, sold in October of 2007, or of the other review disc, sold in November 2007.

Review discs, and review versions in general, usually do not contain many differences to the final release. Differences, if present, are unlikely to be in the form of early elements; there have been quite a few exceptions to this tendency, however.
