Why is the dreamcast box diffrent to all the others?

Post by 20hz » Wed Sep 16, 2009 7:38 am

I picked up a copy of who wants to be a millionair for 99p i brought it because it was sealed and i wanted the mint case.

i just noticed the dreamcast logo on the case is diffrent to any of my other games

Image

notice the black dreamcast logo as per all my other games

Image

then this box has a blue logo

any idea why this is? im a bit gutted as it looks wrong and dosent match my other games and the fact it has a crack in it also!

Could the ink have rubbed off maybe?

There is no method to the Dreamcast's madness.

I noticed this just the other day when I got Space Channel and Starwars. My theory is they must have changed the design to black print because its easier to spot the 'Dreamcast' text? Stands out more

Without going upstairs and waking Mrs Ant, I think I also have some with the text in white, though it could be my memory playing tricks on me.

Isn't the black writing ones some sort of print while the blue writing is moulded into the plastic?

Saved them £0.1 for each case to do maybe?

from what i remember the initial games released all came with the black printed logo, and then after a while the blue moulded into the plastic style replaced them, quite why i dont know but then again we are talking about the same sega who chose to go with a bad game case design in the first place.
