This limited edition of the French exclusive game “Adibou Et L’Ombre Verte” is quite hard to find complete and in good condition. In the blue Playstation shaped suitcase you will find a copy of the game, a special designed controller, a special designed memory card and a case for the memory card.
You can generally find the Portuguese and Spanish variants of “Truck Rally” quite easy, but the U.K variant definitely belongs in the top of the most rare titles for the Playstation.
“2 Games: TOCA World Touring Cars/Jonah Lomu Rugby” is probably the most rare “2 Games” compilation of them all. It was released in Australia and New Zealand exclusively.
This version of the “RFU Adaptor” was manufactured to fit the Playstation consoles that came after model “SCPH-1002”.
I have noticed that it is much harder to find a boxed copy of this adaptor today, than it was just a couple of years ago.
The German variant of the game “5 Star Racing” comes in a big cardboard box. It is a rare item and I have been after it for quite a long time. I am extra happy that the copy I found is still sealed.
Here whe have a French exclusive limited edition I have been after for a very long time. The pack contains the French variants of the games “Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes”, “Spec Ops: Covert Assault”, “Hidden & Dangerous” and three war models from Heller.
There also exists a “Wargame Pack Edition Limitee 1”, which has a cover artwork more similar to the “Spec Ops Trilogie” pack and includes the game “GTA 2” instead of “Duke Nukem: Land of the Babes”.
“Quiz Show” is a really rare Italian exclusive release. I searched this game every day for a couple of months before it finally appeared on ebay.
This is a limited edition of the game “Beyblade – Let it Rip!”. It is probably German exclusive and is very hard to find.
It contains the German variant of the game, a Beyblade sack and a Beyblade cap.
Here we have the red German cardboard box version of “Family Games Compendium”. It is a lot more uncommon than the black German variant, but not necessary very expensive. This copy is new and sealed.
This unusual memory card pack was released in France only. It contains the French variant of “Teletubbies – Play With the Teletubbies” and a yellow 1 Mb memory card from Joytech. A barcode sticker covers the original barcode for the game.
The U.K variant of “Yetisports World Tour” is one of those budget games that has become really hard to find lately. There are usually a couple of French variants to find at ebay, but you will seldom see the English one. I am predicting that this game is going to be very sought after in the near future, which will increase the value alot. So if you find a copy, buy it immediately while it is still quite cheap.
The big box version of “All Star Racing” is very uncommon.
Unlike the other big box games, this one has a cardboard sleeve that covers the cardboard box. The game is the multi-language variant.
This is a very rare limited edition console pack. I suspect that it is an Italian exclusive, as the watch manufacturer Sector is located there.
The thin outer cardboard box, which has a small plastic window where the watch is displayed, contains the standard silver box variant of the Playstation “PSone SCPH-102C” console bundle and a Playstation watch from Sector. The watch comes in a nice looking display case, which also contains a “World Service Centers” booklet and some kind of certification card from Sector. The console box contains the usual stuff (a console, a white “Dual Shock” controller, power and AV cords, a scart adapter and printed materials).
This is an amazing addition to the collection!
Here we have a complete copy of the Sony licensed “Analog and Digital Steering Wheel with Foot Pedals” from Mad Catz.
A yellow sticker on the box states that except for the wheel, pedals and instruction booklet, this bundle also includes a cheeky Mad Catz watch.

In the cardboard sleeve you will find the Australian/New Zealand variants of the games “Vanishing Point”, “RC Revenge” and “Jeremy McGrath Supercross 2000”. The cases have the same size as the ones for regular music-CDs.
The U.K variant of the “This Is Football” press kit has the shape of a notebook and contains a red pencil, a white review copy of the game disc, a CD-ROM with press information and a fold-out leaflet which is connected to the cover.
This is one of the more common press kits out there.
This is a very rare French variant of the “All Star Action” big box version.
Unlike the other “All Star Action” big box variants (Dutch/U.K, German and European), this one has a sleeve instead of a box with a cap. In the design it looks similar to the also blue coloured Dutch/U.K variant, but has a few differences. For example, the French variant says “12 STAR GAMES” in yellow letters on the front cover, while the Dutch/U.K one says “12 PS ONE GAMES” in red letters.
You are looking at a complete set of unlicensed PAL games for Playstation 1. Well, actually only two of the titles could be defined as real games, since three of them are screensavers and one is a visually enhanced CD player with a mini game.
The text “FOR PLAYSTATION 2 & PSONE” is printed on the front covers, but since the games works on a Playstation 1 console, they are technically Playstation 1 titles. Playstation 2 is backward compatible, so it will play all Playstation 1 games, but Playstation 1 can never play a Playstation 2 game.
“Fun+Learn1ing – Volume 1” (educational game)
“Fun+Learn1ing – Volume 2” (educational game)
“Feeding Frenzy” (screensaver with predator theme)
“Virtual Aquarium” (screensaver with aquarium, space and lava lamp theme)
“Virtual Fireplace” (screensaver with fireplace, space and disco theme)
“DSP – Music Revelation” (except for the disc with the visually enhanced CD player, a music CD is included with soundtracks from various video games)
These titles are very hard to find.
This is the only complete copy of the “Destruction Derby Raw” press kit I am aware of.
Inside the neutral cardboard box, you will find the game disc, a CD-ROM containing press information and three destroyed toy stock cars. The cars and the discs are vacuum packed in “Destruction Derby Raw” labelled plastic bags. An information paper from the developer is also included.
For a long time I thought that the “Destruction Derby Raw” press kit only consisted of the game and the press discs. Therefore, it was really nice to discover that the kit was actually supposed to contain some more stuff.
This is a quite common game combo from France.
Bundled in a blister pack, you will find re-releases of the games “V-Rally ’97 – Championship Edition” and “Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee”. Both games are French variants.
This is the very uncommon New Zealand/Australian variant of the Phoenix game “Buttsubushi”. It is the only known version with English text on the cover and in the instruction booklet. Just like many releases from New Zealand/Australia, the case has the same shape and size as the ones for music-CDs.
There also exists a much more common German variant of this game.
This is a quite uncommon Portuguese variant of “Tomb Raider”. The game comes in a blue cardboard sleeve which is advertising some kind of competition, held by the Portuguese publisher Ecofilmes in the early 2000s.
Several different games was released in this way, but not many copies seems to have survived and could therefore be quite hard to find nowadays.
“Animal Football”, a budget title from Phoenix, is one of the more rare games released to Playstation 1. Since the interest for these obscure titles has increased lately you can expect to pay quite alot money to get a complete copy of this game.
“Detective Mouse” is another uncommon release from Phoenix. It is often listed as one of the more rare titles for Playstation 1 and has therefore became quite expensive lately.
This kind of blister packs from Disney was only released in France.
It contains the French variant of “Disney’s Peter Pan – Adventures in Neverland”, a special designed controller and a special designed memory card.
This bundle is quite common.
This is the European version of the 10 Million Model “Memory Card”. It was produced by Sony in limited numbers to celebrate that ten million Playstation consoles had been sold. The “Memory Card” is the most common item in the 10 Million Model line.
It consists of a silver Playstation “Memory Card” in a black cardboard folder which has the text “NOT FOR RESALE” printed on the back, a sticker for the card and the instruction paper.
In comparision with the other pieces in the 10 Million Model line (the console and controller), the “Memory Card” is not so hard to find.
The press kit for “In Cold Blood” is not easy to find nowadays.
It consists of a folder covered in graphics, which is holding the two game discs, a CD-ROM with press information, a small spray can and a pamphlet. The kit comes in a silver bag for static shielding. To reveal the text inside the information pamphlet, you are supposed to use the spray can on it. The liquid in it has dried since long.
This is a Playstation “SCPH-5502 C” console bundle.
It contains a Playstation “SCPH-5502” console, an original controller, AV and power cables, instruction manuals, registration booklet, guarantee paper and advertising. I have no clue about which version of “Demo 1” that is supossed to be in this pack, so I have not included one in the photos.
This bundle is common and you should be able to find a copy of it at any time on ebay.
The “Syphon Filter 2” press kit is very uncommon and hard to find as a complete copy like this one.
The kit contains a small electric torch with the “Syphon Filter 2” logo, a metal clip, two batteries and a digipak that holds the two game discs and a CD-ROM with press information.
You will not see this awesome item for sale all too often and when it finally turns up, it usually costs quite alot.

The pack contains the console, a white “Dual Shock” controller, a RFU adaptor, an AC adaptor and printed materials.
This is a very common item that you will find on ebay at any time.
This bundle contains the game “Dance Europe” and a dance mat with instructions.
The design of this pack has a different look than its British counterpart “Dance: UK” + dance mat bundle, which is basically just the original dance mat box with a sticker on.
It should not be all too difficult to find a copy of this bundle on ebay.
Here we have a Playstation “SCPH-1002 C” console bundle. The “C” means that the contents of this pack are adapted to European countries, others than U.K. British bundles have instead the letter “B” after the model number while Australian/New Zealand packs have an “A”.
The box contains a Playstation “SCPH-1002” unit, power and AV cords, an original controller, instruction manuals for the console and a guarantee paper. A “Demo 1” is supossed to be in this bundle as well, but since I am not 100% sure of which version it should be, I have chosen not to include one in the pictures.
You can find this pack quite often on ebay, but expect it to be a little bit more expensive than later Playstation models.
This is the “Help 2001” game pack, released by Entertainment Software Charity (e.s.c.).
The bundle consists of a big cardboard sleeve holding the four games “TOCA Touring Car Championship”, “Tomb Raider”, “WWF War Zone” and “Ridge Racer Revolution”. A text on the front cover declares that “ALL PROFITS FROM THE SALE OF THIS PACK WILL GO TO HELP DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN”.
“Help 2001” can be quite hard to find nowadays, so if you see one for sale, grab it immediately!

It contains the game “Formula One 99”, a white “Formula One 99” t-shirt and a “Formula One 99” cap.
You can find this pack quite often on ebay, but sometimes you will have to wait months before it turns up. My copy is new and sealed.
This is the most rare gun pack of the known French exclusives. It contains a copy of the game “Maximum Force”, a black light gun with instruction paper and a grey adapter.
This bundle is quite hard to find, but not necessarily very expensive.
This bundle is a French exclusive release. Just like the first “Die Hard Trilogy” gun pack, it could be quite tricky to find.
The box contains a French copy of the “Die Hard Trilogy 2” game, a “Scorpion – Recoil Light Gun” with instructions and a “G-Con” adapter.
This is a really rare edition of the game “Disruptor”.
It is the normal German double case variant, equipped with an extra cardboard sleeve that features a teddy bear and ratings from magazines as box art.
There exists an even more rare French release of this edition as well.
Here we have a sealed copy of a quite rare controller pack from Konami.
The bundle contains the English version of the game “Dancing Stage EuroMix” and a Konami dance mat.
I know that there also are French and Italian variants of this pack and I suspect there is a German version as well.
This is for me, a previously unknown game + memory card edition, which I believe was released exclusively in France.
The bundle contains a French copy of the game “Hidden & Dangerous” and a 1 Mb memory card from Joytech. A barcode sticker is placed on the outside of the blister pack to cover the original barcode for the game.
A really rare object, but not necessarily so expensive.
Here we have a boxed copy of the “Arcade Stick” from Namco.
The controller is not so rare, but highly sought after, since it is considered to be one of the best made arcade sticks that was manufactured for the Playstation 1.
“Tomb Raider Collectors Edition” was released in Australia and New Zealand exclusively, with a limited number of 10 000 copies.
The box is really good looking and contains the three first Tomb Raider games in special designed DVD cases. However, the games are oddly enough cheap re-releases. “Tomb Raider” and “Tomb Raider II” are Eidos Ricochet versions, while “Tomb Raider III – Adventures of Lara Croft” is the Platinum edition.
Due to the high release number of this object, it is quite common and should not be all too expensive to buy.
This is a quite uncommon launch pack of “Victory Boxing 2”. The red plastic box has the shape of a boxing glove and the content is revealed by pulling off the yellow cardboard sheet on its back.
According to the seller of this item, this pack was handed out to video game retailers for the launch of the game. The bundle contains a “Victory Boxing 2” demo disc, instruction leaflet and a mouthguard in a plastic box with instruction manual.
This launch pack was totally unknown for me before I found this copy on ebay.
This is a complete copy of the “Sphere 360°” controller from ASCII. It comes in a nice looking box that contains the controller, information and instruction papers and a “Sphere 360°” training disc.
The PAL version, which my copy of course is, seems to be a bit more uncommon than the NTSC one.
The official Playstation “Mouse”. A white Playstation mouse pad is included in the box.
Quite common hardware.
This game is easy in the top 20 of the most rare Playstation 1 standard releases. “Herkules” is one of those cheap “Cartoon Film, Jigsaw Puzzle and Colouring Book” Phoenix titles and will probably only interest the obscure game collector or the ones who are going for a full PAL set.
Fortunately, when the game finally turns up for sale, it will cost you almost nothing.
This is the well known HMV edition of “World Cup 98”. The difference between this and the original release is the shiny, holographic front cover. There was only one way to get your hands on this edition at the time and that was to pre-order it through the U.K media store company HMV.
It is listed quite often on ebay and should not be very expensive to grab.
This edition of “Puchi Carat” is pretty common. There is almost always a copy listed on ebay and often quite cheap to get.
The bundle contains the game and a special designed green controller. My copy is brand new and sealed.
“The Hoobs Playtime Gift Pack” is a really rare object nowadays. My copy includes the Australian/New Zealand variant of the game and for a long time this limited edition was considered to be an exclusive release for these countries. I just recently found out that this pack also exists bundled with a Spanish variant of the game and the flags on the cardboard box back indicates that it probably was released in some other countries as well.
The game disc comes in a music-CD style case, which has “Not to be sold separately” printed on its backside inlay.
The box contains, except for the game itself, a character from the TV-show as a plush toy. I have never seen this limited edition packed with any other figure than this green one.
This limited edition of “Spider-Man” is a German exclusive release. The big cardboard box contains the game itself, a blue Spider-Man T-shirt and a Spider-Man comic.
There are a couple of known copies in the hand of other collectors, but it rarely turns up for sale, so when I saw this one I grabbed it immediately. It was quite expensive, but the condition is really good. The game and the T-shirt are still sealed and the comic looks untouched.
