A public fundraiser to secure various Xbox/PlayStation 2 prototype discs was conducted sometime in 2020 by the Obscure Gamers community. The builds available for purchase were primarily used for magazine reviews and previews somewhere in the PAL region. A total of around 15 discs were acquired and dumped. The dumps were released on June 15th, 2020.
