The main menu music is the underground Venice theme. The demo contains five items:

The following comparisons are made with regards to the NTSC retail build.

Lemonade Brawl

Main article: Lemonade Brawl
In the April 18 2005 build (the E3 2005 demo), the job is called "Lemonade Brawl".

  • The scrolling instructions along the top of the drinking challenge states: "Mash buttons to drink faster."
  • Sly's charge cane spin attack from Sly 2 is present and can be executed; press and hold SquareButton.png .
  • The controls page in the pause menu references Sly 2's controls, and only for Sly, regardless of the character currently under control.
  • Sly's Charge Combos operate much differently than in final retail builds. The TriangleButton.png button acts as both an attack and a charge-up; in order to "charge" up the attack, Sly must land consecutive TriangleButton.png hits on enemies. If consecutive hits are not landed within a certain period of time, the combo is reset to level 1.
  • All three charge combos (Spin, Push, Jump), and all three levels of charge combos are available for Sly to use.
  • When Murray is carrying an enemy, CircleButton.png is throw, rather than pickpocket.
  • The art on the coins is the same art used in the Sly 2 Prologue. (Clockwerk wings)
  • The scrolling instructions along the top of the Mask boss battle states: "Let Bentley and Murray stun him before attacking."

Fly the Biplane

Main article: Fly the Biplane
In the April 18 2005 build (the E3 2005 demo), the job is called "Fly the Biplane".

  • Story details are omitted from the job's description.
  • The objective is to destroy 30 planes, instead of 25.
  • There is no way to flip the biplane; in the final retail build, a flip is done with LStick.png (forward or backward) + CircleButton.png . Performing this in the E3 2005 build will cause Sly to do a barrel roll instead.

The Shaman Escapes

Main article: The Shaman Escapes
In the April 18 2005 build (the E3 2005 demo), the job is called "The Shaman Escapes", and features the Guru, referred to as the Shaman.

  • A different voice is used for The Guru when he is speaking to other characters.
  • Pressing LStick.png to trigger the waypoint shows Sly's insignia, instead of a circle.
  • The art on the coins is the same art used in the Sly 2 Prologue.
  • Running behind enemies does not alert them.

2P: Sly/Carmelita

Main article: Cops and Robbers
In the April 18 2005 build (the E3 2005 demo), the minigame is called "2P: Sly/Carmelita".

  • Sly's charged cane spin attack from Sly 2 is present and can be executed; press and hold SquareButton.png .
  • Initially, pressing TriangleButton.png as Sly will trigger his uppercut attack from Sly 2. However, once Sly attacks Carmelita, pressing TriangleButton.png will trigger a prototype of his charge combo.
    • The TriangleButton.png button acts as both an attack and a charge-up; in order to "charge" up the attack, Sly must land consecutive TriangleButton.png hits on enemies. If consecutive hits are not landed, the combo is reset to level 1.
  • In addition to dropping off loot, Sly also gains points by killing Carmelita.
  • Carmelita cannot natively perform Mega Jump; she must obtain the Mega Jump power-up to perform it.
  • The voice actors for Sly and Carmelita when they pick up powerups are different than their retail voice actors.
