True Crimes: Streets of LA – Tin Edition

Posted in Playstation 2 on October 31, 2014 by drewturpin

True Crimes: Streets of LA was not a game which set Playstation 2 alight, being another inferior GTA clone. However it did come in this rare tin edition. This is not a steelbook version, just a metal tin which houses the standard version of the game box.

This is not seen a great deal on ebay, but when it does turn up it can be picked up cheaply. I paid around £5 for my copy, which is well worth the money for an unusual collector’s version.

Forbidden Siren 1 & 2 – Promo Discs

Posted in Playstation 2 on October 19, 2014 by drewturpin

These are the promo disc versions of Forbidden Siren 1 and 2 (known as just Siren outside of the PAL regions). This is a series well worth a look if you are in to survival horror, as there is a little more depth than most of games in this genre.

The games main protagonist has the psychic ability of “sightjacking”, which enables them to hear and see through the eyes of other character in the game.

These discs do tend to turn up every so often on ebay, and can be picked up for between £5 and £10 each.

This is the promo disc version of the classic Resident Evil 4, and comes in a slim clear CD case containing a proper insert.

I have been after this particular promo for a while now, and was very pleased to snap one up from ebay for £20.

However expect to pay around £40 and upwards for a copy, as most on ebay tend to be on “buy it now” auctions.
