Bootleg Sampler, despite its name, is an official Sega Saturn demo disc packaged with new consoles for a period in both North America and Europe. Like later demo discs, it features a number of playable demos and movie clips.
Three variants of the Bootleg Sampler were released among the US and Europe, with small differences. The first version (US), contains three playable demos and eight videos, while the second version added a playable demo for Bug! (rather than the video presented in the first). The third version was the PAL release, which was identical to the second other than certain PAL related messages. The Bug! FMV is still on the game disc for the second USA and PAL release.
The PAL version was distributed with issue #3 of the UK's Sega Saturn Magazine.
