Primpy, the beta versions of JJ2 came with some PCs (maybe Gateway PCs or maybe not) and the only official way to get the beta versions of JJ2 is buy a PC manufactured and released from the 1998 era that happens to still be on sale.

In other words, it's virtually impossible to legally obtain the beta, since I doubt computer stores keep 16-year old computers in stock. But if you bought a computer around that time, it might have come with a JJ2 beta.

But yeah, it's common practice to include random games with computers. My favorite examples of this are Minesweeper and POD racing.

Yeah... this game.

POD Gold. It was freaking awesome, I loved it and it had the best music, in fact now that I found it on I'm almost about to buy it and see if it'll run, considering the price.

That's off-topic though. The way Epic released the JJ2 betas (there's 2 versions), they weren't intended as a demo nor a shareware release, just a beta test. And there's no reason to redo a beta test when they already fixed beta bugs.
