Final Fantasy 7 – Promo Discs

Posted in Playstation 1 on September 19, 2012 by drewturpin

Final Fantasy 7 was the game that launched the Final Fantasy franchise onto the Playstation in Europe. It also raised the profile of RPGs with console owners that believed the genre was only for PC gamers.

What we have here is the very rare three disc promo edition in excellent condition, not to be confused with the Final Fantasy 7 rental discs that were available from the likes of Blockbuster. These were picked up on ebay for just £15, which was very cheap and is probably down to being listed as the standard Final Fantasy 7 game without manual. Expect to pay £80 and upwards for a complete set of discs in this sort of condition.


Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty – Limited Edition Tin Case

Posted in Playstation 2 on September 2, 2012 by drewturpin

This tin box is a pre-order bonus available to those who purchased Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty from Virgin Megastore. The game title is embossed on the front, with the actual game case fitting snugly inside. This particular tin has a few small dents and a little rust, which is to be expected.

I don’t really know too much more about this particular item, but was fortunate enough to pick it up for about £3 on ebay. However expect to pay £20 and upwards, with the price dependent on the condition on the tin.
