Do you get anything nice in that? I'm sorely tempted by this too as I played the PS1 games but missed the PS2 FF's altogether.

You get a crappy art book.

The package overall is nice though, they've done an amazing job.

Definitely a decent way of playing it for the first time.

I have got the standard version. I didn't think it was worth £10 more to get an artbook.

super bust a move for the ps2,not sure how good this is? I know the ps1 games were rated by some. wasn't exactly taken in by the front cover, I think thats the worst case of box art design i've ever seen!...

Infamous: Second Son on PS4, for some reason I bought the special edition with a beanie hat, what is wrong with me? Still, looking forward to the game this weekend.

Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles. Haven't finished Umbrella Chronicles yet but it just seemed incomplete not to have both games.

Depends where you bought it from, my copy was a few quid more expensive than the standard editon. Reagrdless it's a got a nice artbook.

Another one panned a bit by the gaming press but I've heard off a few people it's cool. It certainly can't be as awful as NG3!!

From the last 2-3 weeks:

PS3:
The Witch and the Hundred Knight + shopto artbook

PS2:
Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (thanks to Shinobi for this)
Guilty Gear XX The Midnight Carnival NTSC-J (again, thanks to Shinobi!)
Shijou Saikyou Teishi Kenichi NTSC-J (thanks to Black Ridge for this)
Another Century's Episode NTSC-J (props to Black Ridge again)

PS1:
Spiderman 2: Enter Electro

Also got some replacement 3DS styluses as I seem to have somehow lost mine. Had to get cheap third-party ones though as it seems official ones don't exist?
