PlayStation Vita Game Cases: Surprisingly Odorless

Chris Buffa (Modojo): This may come as somewhat of a shock, but people smell their video games. Not the actual discs and carts per se, but inside the boxes. They'll pop the shrink wrap, crack open the case and take a good long whiff, likely inhaling some sort of toxic chemical.

Hey now, as a game sniffer (what can I say?) this is news to me!

I`m a (new) book and car sniffer too.

though it isn`t like I go searching for it, cause that would be weird.

I loved the smell of opening a PS2 game for the first time.

Consoles smell too, I can imagine the smell of my PS3 and 360s to this very day.

I love new game smell, the first one I remember was when I opened up Ninja Gaiden for Xbox. People love the new car smell and now there's a spray for that too.

the first thing I do when i open a new PS3 game is smell it. no lie.

banjadude2261d ago

It's an ASMR thing... kind of like how people like to hear the popping of bubble wrap, when a game is delivered in that way, etc.

A new game smell is up there with freshly cut grass & freshly baked bread.

I must admit, I love the smell of a newly opened game. New plastic smells good too.
