PlayStation Collector’s Edition and Twin Packs

About

During the last few years of the PlayStation’s life, Sony realized that the green labeled “Greatest Hits” logo just wasn’t cutting it anymore. So they came up with a new strategy of Collector’s Editions.

Boxed in a cardboard sleeve, redone in special CE packaging, each set would contain 3 jewel cased games that all adhered to a theme. Some were sequel based, some were genre based, and some just stuck with a license. The idea was a valid success, and ended up generating 11 different sets along with two smaller Twin Sets.

Here is where the 3 CD Collector’s Packs come into play. All sets adhere to the following criteria:

  • 3 Complete Games per box set
  • Either Genre, Series, or Sequel based
  • All CDs are printed white with the words “Collector’s Edition” on them.
  • Each CD’s PSRM digit ends in a 4 rather than 0
  • The SLUS / SCUS digits all end in CE
  • Each set has its own SCUS / SLUS digit, but no overall PSRM.
  • Only the outer box is sealed; the inside jewel cases are opened
  • The barcodes on each jewel case are replaced with “Part of a Set” warnings
