Metal Gear Solid 2 – Platinum

Posted in Playstation 2 on November 28, 2014 by drewturpin

This is the Platinum release of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, which you would think isn’t a particular rare version of the game. However you would be surprised on how few occasions this would turn up on ebay.

When it does quite often it contains the original disc and not the platinum disc. I have no idea why this would be but I finally manage to track one down for about £3. If you do find one I would imagine you should be able to secure it for a similar price.

Gran Turismo 2 – Promo Discs

Posted in Miscellaneous on November 16, 2014 by drewturpin

These are the promo discs of the Playstation’s Gran Turismo 2, release in 1999 by Polyphony Digital. This game was the sequel to very successful Gran Turismo, and although well received, did not quite eclipse the sales of the original game.

These discs were picked up off ebay for about £10, which I am more than happy with.  I’ve not seen another one of these which make putting an actual value on this item difficult.
