[PS1] The Glove

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”.

[PS1] Playstation Analog Joystick

The official Playstation “Analog Joystick” is a massive controller, mainly designed for flight simulation games and such.

Small rubber suckers, which could be put beneath the controller to make it steady, are included in a plastic bag with instructions.

This apparatus is quite uncommon with the box and the cost for it should be around £50-£150 depending on the condition.

[PS1] Sphere 360°

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.

[PS1] Playstation Memory Card (White)

Official white-coloured “Memory Card” in a blister pack. There are tons of these in different colours on ebay, but make sure you get a European version if you are a PAL collector like me. On most official hardware you can often see this on the letter “E” that is printed after the product number, in this case “SCPH-1020 EW”. The “E” stands for Europe and the “W” stands for white which is the colour of the card.

[PS1] Speed Freaks + Multi Tap Bundle (Eastern European Variant)

“Multi Tap” packs are really rare objects. This “Speed Freaks + Multi Tap” bundle is the most common one of them though.

What makes this edition special is that it comes packed with an Eastern European variant of the game. The instruction booklet and the back cover of the disc case are written in Russian, Czech, Polish and Turkish. The cardboard box is the normal European multi-language one but with a barcode sticker that covers the original barcode. In game language is English only.

The pack contains the game “Speed Freaks” (which has “Not to be sold separately” typed on its back cover), a “Multi Tap” and instruction leaflet.

I have never seen this edition of the game before and can not find anything on the internet about it. Overall, Eastern European variants are often very hard to come across.

[PS1] G-Con45 + Ghoul Panic + Point Blank 2 Bundle

This is a quite unusual gun pack. The box, which actually is the “Point Blank 2 + G-Con45” bundle, has a big sticker on it that covers its frontside saying: “G-Con45 + Ghoul Panic + Point Blank 2”. A barcode sticker covers the original one on the back of the box.

Except for the two games and the light gun, the bundle contains a Playstation “AV Adaptor” and some instruction leaflets. Both games are the multi-language variants, but only “Point Blank 2” has the “Not to be sold separately” text printed on the disc case back cover.

I think this pack is a Dutch exclusive release, at least I bought my copy in Amsterdam and have never heard of any other collector who have found this in another country.

[PS1] Point Blank 2 + G-Con45 Bundle

This is the second gun pack from Namco in the “Point Blank” series. It contains the “Point Blank 2” game, “G-Con45” and a light gun adapter. The disc case has “Not to be sold separately” printed on its back and the instruction booklet is multi-language.

I think this bundle is a little bit more uncommon than the first “Point Blank” gun set and therefore tends to go for slightly more money on ebay.

[PS1] Point Blank + G-Con45 Bundle

This box set from Namco contains the game “Point Blank”, “G-Con45” and an adapter for the light gun. The case for the disc has the text “Not to be sold separately” written on its back and the instruction booklet is multi-language.

It turns up on ebay once in a while and will probably cost you between £30-£100, depending on its condition.
