comment Why do console games require a button press before showing the main menu?
@Chris Marisic Good point (...although you'd need to press a button to get out of demo mode, so I perhaps you could make a tenuous case for always having to press Start / action button in the name of 'consistency').

I don't know if this is specifically a rule for Microsoft, Sony, or Nintendo (or from past console manufacturers like Sega or Atari) but it certainly SOUNDS like it could be one of the mandatory behaviour requirements (and, in practice, I can't see how you could implement a Demo Mode without it - and that, as you say, is required on all licensed titles from all vendors).
