This page details one or more prototype versions of Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut (Xbox 360).

Five prototypes of the Xbox 360 Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut were retrieved from PartnerNET. They are dated January 8, January 22, January 30, March 26, and August 1, 2010. While three builds from December 2009 have also been found, they consist of only the executables with no playable data.

General Differences

Title Screen

The title screen is slightly rearranged, in addition to a different button prompt and border.

Face Scan

For whatever reason, the builds between January 22nd and March 23rd boot into a facial recognition scan that requires a password to bypass. The January 30th build adds a border around the screen.

The avatar awards are very basic t-shirt with the game's logo on it, as well as generic flip-flops in place of Sonic's shoes.
