I have got a steel book case for SC4 on PS3. When I bought the game in Gamestation they handed me the steel book and the game in the normal case separately.
Did you get the bonus DVD and character booklet too?
I think so.

The two main games I'm after at the moment are Pokemon XD and XGRA for the Cube as they will be a big step to finishing off my collection.

I had a similar experience, I preordered the LE from an online retailer (Gameplay I think), they sent out a copy of the standard game on release and then sent the LE steelbook and extras about a week later. I seem to remember there was a manufacturing problem so they had to issue the game like this. I see far more copies of the PS3 version on my travels than the 360 version - and they're normally scratched to fu$K.

Finally picked up a copy of GT5 signature edition for a non-ridiculous price, now on the lookout for a cheap US copy of Contra 4 on the DS.

Don't suppose you could give us a heads-up if you see a decent condition one with all the bits inside? I did see one once but it didn't have any of the extras in so I left it.

There's a seller on ebay trying to flog the PS3 version inside the 360 Yoda steelbook for £60!!!

Oops. Didn't search other countries. :oops: Quite a few factory sealed ones there. Very tempted indeed.

Aye there's quite a few sellers doing it cheap on import - I picked up a copy. I've been warned that it's really hard but there no way it could be as tough as shattered Soldier!!

The main thing that took me a while to get used to was the game being split over two screens. Its easy to ignore the goons on the top screen shooting at you when your fixed on trying to dodge the enemies on the bottom screen! Its nice and tough but after a lot of deaths you get used to it. Like you said, I find it easier to deal with compared to getting the best ranks on SS.

Thanks for the overview mate, I can see how the split screen would throw you it seems like a very strange perspective!

Actively looking for two PS2 games now, both going to be s0ds to get in good nick and complete for a sub £30

Metal Gear Solid 3 subsistence and Silent Hill Collection

Not sure about good nick but virtually all branches of CEX have copies of Metal Gear 3 Subsistance.

Yep the one near me has the oversized boxed one I'm after but it's £32, a touch more than I want to pay. :D

I'd really like to get a copy of Snatcher for Sega CD....though it seems that it's a sought after game since it's fetching a hefty price. Must be all the Kojima fanboys.
