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.
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 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”.
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.
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”.
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 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 bundle might be slightly more common than the other combo packs that was released in cardboard boxes.
It contains a “Not to be sold separately” copy of the game “Formula One 99” and an official Playstation CD case.
This is the black German big box version of the game “Family Games Compendium”. It is the most common one of the three known variants. You can find this on ebay quite often and should not be especially expensive.
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.
These four games are the only standard Playstation 1 titles that were released in cardboard cases.
“Tekken”, “Total NBA `97” and “Warhawk” were also released in normal jewel cases, while “Mortal Kombat 3” came in a normal music-CD case.
“Total NBA `97” is a bit different from the others. It has blue as basic colour and a piece of basketball rubber glued to the front cover.
None of these games are particularly rare or will cost you much money.
