Jewel Case Release Insert Variant

The First variant simply updates the inside insert to have Eidos’ own Hint Line rather than the strategy guide book. Note the Black Label back inserts all have an unfinished Memory Card Icon, as it forgets the ‘1 Block’ label. They fixed this on the Greatest Hits.

Jewel Case Variant “A”

The next variant is one of the more peculiar ones – the letter A has been added to the Disc, and only the disc’s SLUS (SLUS-00437A). reports that the code on the disc is the same as the others, so the A is more then likely a typo. The back insert is the same as the previous variant with the Hint Line.

The next print run adds Core’s logo to the front of the manual.
