[PS1] Final Fantasy VIII Press Kit

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.

[PS1] Crisis Beat Digital Press Kit

“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.

[PS1] In Cold Blood Press Kit

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.
