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.
“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.
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”.
Here we have a really cool British game pack released by Take 2. I had no idea that it existed before I found this copy on ebay.
The cardboard sleeve contains “Tunguska”, “Action Bass” and the Value Series version of “The Adventures of Monkey Hero”.
This is the U.K variant of the Phoenix game “Robin Hood: The Siege”. Usually there are some German copies to find on ebay, but the U.K variant has become pretty rare nowadays.
Here we have a nice Spanish game pack from Acclaim. It contains the Spanish variant of “Shadow Man” and the Platinum version of “Alien Trilogy”.
I had never seen this blister pack before I found this copy on ebay.
This press kit used to be quite common, but has become more hard to find over time. It consists of a nice little metal case with the “Gran Turismo 2” logotype on the cap, a press CD-ROM, the two game discs and two protective foam rubber discs.
I had no idea that this French blister pack existed before I recently found this copy on ebay. It contains the French variant of the game “Disney’s Party Time With Winnie the Pooh” and a video cassette with the movie “Les Nouvelles Aventures de Winnie l’Ourson – Winnie et le tigre fou”.
This is the most common variant of the “All Star Action” big box versions. The blue cardboard box has Dutch text on its back, while the game itself is the U.K variant. This makes me believe that it was sold in both the U.K and the Benelux countries.
The German variant of the “All Star Action” big box version, is much more uncommon than the Dutch/U.K blue variant, but about equal in rarity in comparison to the European variant I think.
The yellow, oversized cardboard box that contains the game is still sealed.
The “Final Fantasy VIII” press kit is actually the exact same as the “Final Fantasy VIII Limited Edition Box-Set”, except that a press disc is included and instead of the normal variant of the game, the press kit has promo discs in a double jewel case without inlays or instruction booklet.
The really good looking cardboard box contains promo discs of the game, a CD-ROM with press information, an official white Playstation “Memory Card” in a blister pack, a green memory card protective case, a fold-out booklet containing stickers of various Playstation games (for the memory card protective case), a sheet of “Final Fantasy VIII” memory card stickers, a big double-sided “Final Fantasy VIII” poster and a “Final Fantasy VIII” t-shirt.
It could be a little more tricky to find the press kit than the limited edition, but it is not very rare. Since there are a lot of collectors for this game series, a press kit like this could be quite expensive.
“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 the Sony licensed controller “The Glove” from Reality Quest.
Except for the controller and the instruction booklet, a VHS tape is also included. The white label on the cassette says: “PLAY THIS DEMO TAPE FIRST. PAL VERSION. Learn about “The GLOVE” for Playstation Games”.
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.

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 “Vib-Ribbon” press kit is a really good looking piece and relatively uncommon.
Inside the plastic folder you will find the game disc, a CD-ROM with press information, a music-CD and a “Vib-Ribbon” poster.
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.
This has to be the most common French blister pack from Disney.
It contains a French copy of “Disney’s Lilo & Stitch – Trouble in Paradise”, a special designed controller and a special designed memory card.

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.
“Tekken Dark Resurrection” press kit is a quite common and good looking collectors item.
The red soft case contains a pre-production copy of the game, a CD-ROM with press information, an information booklet and a couple of combat survival cards. The cards displays screenshots from the game with a humorous element.
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.
I was totally unaware of the “LMA Manager 2001” promo pack before this copy appeared on ebay.
The fold-out cardboard case, which is embraced by a cardboard sleeve, contains the promo version of the game and an instruction booklet.
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.
I was really suprised when I found this boxed copy of the Sony licensed “2 Way Fighting Commander” controller from Hori. I thought that it never was released in Europe, but as you can see on the flags and languages that adorns the box, it definitively was.
The third triple pack from Disney is the most uncommon one. Except for this rare Swedish variant, where the games are stacked on each other vertically, there is also an Australian variant, where the games comes in music-CD sized cases bundled in a cardboard box similar to the other two Disney packs.
The pack contains the Swedish variants of the games “Disney’s Tarzan”, “Disney’s Aladdin in Nasira’s Revenge”, “Disney’s The Emperor’s New Groove” and has a barcode sticker that covers the original barcode on the back of the cardboard box.
“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.
The “Colin McRae Rally 2.0” promo kit is a quite uncommon object.
In the fold-out box you will find a promo version of the game, instruction booklet and an electronic car park timer in a key chain with an instruction paper.
This is the second game pack from Disney and just like the first bundle, it is relatively common.
It contains “Walt Disney’s The Jungle Book – Groove Party”, “Disney’s Action Game Featuring Hercules” and “Disney/Pixar A Bug’s Life”.
Here we have a copy of the first game pack from Disney.
The box contains the three Disney games “Mickey’s Wild Adventure”, “Disney’s Tarzan” and “Disney’s Story Studio – Mulan”.
This game pack should not be all too hard to find.
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.
“Crisis Beat” digital press kit was unknown for me before this copy appeared on ebay.
It consists of a CD-ROM with press information in a sleeve and the U.K address on the back cover reveals that it was meant for the PAL territory. However, the only files available on the disc are screenshots from the game while the other folders are empty. Studio 3 was probably in a hurry when they made the kit and forgot to put the rest of the files on the CD.
“Evil Dead Limited Edition” is definitely one of my favorite objects in the collection.
It consists of the New Zealand/Australian variant of the game and a video cassette with the movie “Evil Dead”.
A really good looking set which is pretty hard to find, as it seems like it was only released in New Zealand and Australia.
The “Ace Combat 3: Electrosphere” press kit is a quite unusual item.
A big and nice looking cardboard box is holding the content, which consists of a game disc, a CD-ROM with press information and a keychain with the games logotype.
This press kit could be pretty expensive when it finally turns up for sale.
Here we have a quite odd box variant of the Playstation “SCPH-5502 A” console bundle. This unit normally comes in a box with yellow as background colour even in New Zealand/Australia, but somehow, they also had this strange red variant for the same model. It looks very similar to the NTSC box for “SCPH-5501”, except for a couple of minor difference.
The bundle contains a Playstation “SCPH-5502” console, an original controller, AV and power cords and a region specific instruction booklet. A “Demo 1” disc is supossed to be included as well, but since I have no idea about which version it should be, I have chosen not to include one in the photos.
It could be quite hard to get one of these packs, especially if you are not living in Australia or New Zealand.
Here we have a Platinum copy of “Dancing Stage Party Edition”, bundled with a dance mat from Logic3. A sticker on the cardboard box declares: “Dancing Stage Party Edition included with this product”.
I had never seen this game + dance mat combination before.
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.
This is a new and complete copy of the Playstation “PSone SCPH-102B” bundle.
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.
Here we have a very uncommon variant of the Playstation “SCPH-1002” bundle. The box looks similar to the one that belongs to the model “SCPH-5502”, but has a few differences. For example; there are no stripes over the yellow background, different games are displayed on the backside and there is a sticker on the front instead of a print, declaring that a demo disc is included.
The bundle contains a “SCPH-1002” console, an original controller, power and AV cords, instruction manuals and a guarantee paper. With the valuable information from JP in the comment section, I now know that the demo that should be included in this pack is SCED-00456. Many thanks for that.
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.
This pack consists of the game “Dance: UK”, a dance mat with instructions and a registration card. A white sticker on the front of the box declares that it: “ALSO INCLUDES – PSONE DANCE UK SOFTWARE”.
You can find this bundle on ebay very often.
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!
Here we have a sealed copy of the “asciiPad” from ASCIIWare. Finding one complete with the box is actually quite difficult nowadays.
Here we have a really nice limited edition, released in France only.
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 an incredibly rare French exclusive limited edition. It contains the French variants of “Spec Ops – Airborne Commando”, “Spec Ops: Covert Assault”, “Spec Ops – Ranger Elite” and a model of a military jeep from Heller.
“Spec Ops Trilogie” was totally unknown for me before I found this copy on ebay. The seller said that he had only seen one other in over ten years and that one was in much worse condition than this still sealed copy. When searching the internet, I could only find this object in a few other peoples collections.
“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.
A brand new and sealed copy of “World Cup 98 Limited Edition”. This box set contains the game itself, tournament wall chart & rules, red & yellow cards, a penalty blindfold, a disposable FUJI camera and a rubber remote control.
A great limited edition, loaded with stuff! I have seen a couple of these on ebay and they seem to catch quite high prices and even more expensive when sealed.
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.
