Resident Evil 2, 3, CVX Gamecube Factory Sealed?

Post by focusgaming » Tue May 01, 2012 6:35 am

I have Resident Evil 2, 3 and Code Veronica X, all PAL Gamecube, which I am hoping are factory sealed? They have no red tear strip though, but trying to hunt around on google it looks like this is correct? Can anyone verify that? Thanks for any help....

Yes, they're legit.

Worth around £40-£50 each in auction, as they're pretty common! My local inide has them for sale also!

Thanks for that and sorry to be a pain.... I get the rough idea that it was mainly actual Nintendo games that had the red tear strip... but I have seen some Resident Evil games that have the red tear strip and some that don't, just wondered why? If you know?

Yep, they're the mainland europe release, however they'll also have english text on back. These games are reportedly second prints too! (which i also believe)

I think this is real deal as well!
I found a ebay one if you want to check closely at?
Link: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RESIDENT-EVIL ... 1c2689d1e2

You were right in thinking (as so did I) there were the official nintendo logo stamped all around the tear strip but it is only the nintendo made games only.

That was one of the one's that was confusing me originally, as you can see the little red marks on the tear strip.... mine doesn't have those...

I will give you example of a officially sealed nintendo made game on the DS game & should be similar to the offical Gamecube ones.

Doesn't the red Nintendo strip only apply when the games are 1st party releases, and not by 3rd party publishers?

Not that it matters...rip 'em off :wink:
