Region 1 Sealed PS3 Games question

12 posts in this topic

Has anyone seen PS3 Region 1 (NA) games sealed like Region 2 (EU) with the PS3 logo cellophane on the bottom? I think Asian games come like that too, but has anyone ever seen a region 1 with it???

Yep, and it even was the holy grail of PS3 games:

If you have more money than sense, the only copy of this game on Ebay is currently going for £6,187.88 on Ebay UK but that is just for the case and a promo card - the disc isn't included.

It was posted by someone on the Facebook page of PS3 collectors.

 

Never said it was 100% real, but the TC asked if someone as ever seen anything like that.

that’s the thing, that’s what I’m talking about there was 2 copies of NBA Elite 11 This week alone(which is especially fishy)that had this type of seal on a region 1. The pic that you guys see my brother in law got additional pictures before the listing was removed and the seller is no longer a registered user. It is a different copy from the other NBA elite 11 that sold 2 days ago Just by seeing the ps3 cellophane was a little higher than the other, but both copies are selling from Russia and Poland.....

I'm just wondering if you’ll think this is legit or fake?????

If the seal is a Y fold on the top and bottom it is, otherwise it's a reseal

Do you think this is real? Most copies I’ve seen have a holographic nba sticker and also a NBA Jam stick on most copies, since this is so rare maybe some didn’t get that or could it be fake? I think it could be real, but the 2 missing stickers and a EU looking seal on an NA game are some red flags... just was wondering what the gaming community thinks.... THanks in advance for all the input from everyone

I can't tell without seeing the top or the bottom of the case.

Maybe I'm being dense, but I don't know what you're referring to in your question. Do you have picture links for reference?

I tried pasting a photo, forgot I gotta upload it to a site first, I’m talking about NBA Elite 11 picture in the 2nd post, it’s sealed, it has the ps3 cellophane towards the middle/bottom which is usually only done for Europe/Asia/Japan sealed games, so that’s why I was asking if anyone has ever seen it on a NTSC Region 1 game, I’ll upload a few photos later so I can get people’s thoughts

I think it's safe to say it's a counterfeit copy. The reason it exists doesn't mean it is indeed legit. Nevertheless, wrappings don't mean much these days. I've seen Y folded wrapped NTSC games that are not new. Others that would come in shrinking cellophane that are new, but for some reason were resealed.

 

So there are my two cents.
