Relentless editions
 
1 Attachment(s)
I'm trying to buy the original boxed version of LBA1, but it's very hard to get these days, especially when looking for an unused and still factory sealed copy.

There are multiple editions of the game, such as original edition, gold edition, classics edition, etc. One of the merchants are selling a 'Publisher's Choice' edition (see attachment). Have any of you got this edition? Is the 'Publisher's Choice' label only a sticker or is it printed on the box? If it's a sticker, is it attached to the box itself or to the shrink-wrap?

The "Publisher's Choice" thing is actually on the box. If you look closely you can see that the silver slash is metallic, and best results are when it's printed on the box itself.

Finding a sealed copy is going to be next to impossible.. :?

I have the Original edition, and a copy for the PS1. The Original edition box has a big dint in the bottom left hand corner (:() and the PS1 copy, the booklet was partially stuck together. The CDs were perfect though. :)

Actually there are some at the amazon.com Marketplace which are advertised as 'factory sealed'. Some sellers even sent photos of them when I asked.

Apparently I couldn't find a sealed copy of the original edition anywhere, only of the US gold edition, the US Publisher's Choice and the UK classics edition.

Which edition should I get? I think the gold edition doesn't include the original manual. Can you confirm this?

When I got LBA 1 from CD access, it was in the jewel case only, but did come with instructions. My version was the "OEM - Europe Only" version. Don't ask me why.

OEM, Europe only, in the states... I'm sorry but I find that a bit too bizarre. Hahaha!

Well that's what I thought too...I was kind of like "wtf" when I opened it up. But I didn't care, haha :lol:

If that "Publisher's Choice" label is on box is very shame. They just screw up that beautiful box. Anyway, for me it seams that its something on top of the box, on top of the factory sealed box.

The Relentless version I've got was also sealed but it didn't had that label.
