Feature: PlayStation Game Case Evolution

Lens of Truth writes - "PlayStation cases have gone through many changes early in the system’s life. The transition to the common jewel case has a strange history. There were 3 different cases before the standard CD size jewel. For me as a gamer turned collector, the hunt for some of these variations has been sort of a pain."

This is an awesome article! I'm also so picky when it comes to my retro case. lol I didn't realize how many iterations Sony has made to their cases

Sony does suck for doing that. I cannot stand when game cases on the same system don't match on my shelf. Even the PS3, why does the spines of Uncharted 1 and Uncharted 2 have different PS3 logos? Make up you effin mind Sony!

Yeah that seems to bother me a bit as well. I especially hate seeing a red greatest hit case in my collection. ...shudders...

It's a new look that came with the new slim models release.

Microsoft did the same with the 360 logos on the cases.

I always find it odd looking at the green cases. I'm pretty sure in Europe or at least the UK we've only ever had the black PS1 cases. All of my games are like that anyway. If this guy wanted to dip into the euro market he'd find pretty much every game in a black case.

I have several games in the old tall cases. I think my Krazy Ivan cardboard case is in immaculate condition. If anyone today even knew what that game was about, I'd try and Ebay it, lol.

I always thought that those huge PS1 game cases were weird.

Thats funny this guy mentions star wars: dark forces 2- Jedi knight, one of my all time favorite games.

I got that game shortly after it came out and it came in the huge box that PC games had back in the day, and it was in a jewel case that had a weird flap that would hold both of the disks with one on each side. I remember hat because disk 2 would fall off the back of the flap all the all the time.

It came in this giant box with the 2 disk skinny jewel case inside
