    Default Playstation 1 blue discs ... what are they ???

    I have come across this blue disc of Final Fantasy VII ... i can say that the disc is original because the art on the disc is IDENTICAL to any FF7 i know; I collect FF7s and i have over 40 of the black label version.






    What do you think ?

    According to this site, it appears you may have a Hong Kong silver cd. (a bootleg.) I hope I'm wrong, though.

    Those are silver, this is very much like Blu Ray's.

    Very good to know that, that game is obviously original right ?

    And they hold their value better than the US dollar

    Looks like a HK bootleg to me as well.

    Does anyone have a photo of a Hong Kong Silver ???

    I have never seen a bootleg of this color and with such quality on the disc cover. I have never seen one in Mexico either ...

    The quality of the disc print is the same as any regular black FF7 disc and usually bootlegs are easy to spot in text detail or particular marks.

    I forgot to say :

    The game works on a regular NTSC PS1, PS2 or PS3

    I don't have a boot to compare to, but does your disc have the same numbers around the center spindle area as a regular copy? I think it is a PSRM number or somesuch. I don't have a real copy in front of me either, so not sure if FFVII had these on them since not all discs do (e.g. Oddworld, which I do have in front of me). Something to check anyway.

    I was wondering the same thing. Then I realized that, if I could, I'd have 40 copies of Lunar, so I can't really fault him for it

    This is the small number pressed on the data side of the disc, near the center : IFPI 5065.


    I checked several FF7 and they all had the IFPI and the numbers are different on every copy i checked, so i assume this number is as any other.


    I took a picture of a GH and a regular one

    Perhaps it is a rerelease? Were GH games labeled some way or were the discs the exact same?

    Are all three discs of that game blue, or just that Disc 1?

    Maybe it's discoloration? It could have been left out in the sun or in an extremely heated area for a long period of time.

    As for the qquestion: it might actually be a bootleg. Here in Brazil, I've seen totally faithful labels on counterfeit cds.

    Why do you have over 40 FF7's? That's insane!!! Are you obessessed with the game?


    I guess it's like I have over 20 sealed Double Dragon 1's for the SMS. I'm obessessed with Double Dragon.

    Do that bootlegs work in PS consoles without a mod.chip ?, because this cd does work on any

    Hmmmm....good point. No, they don't. Guess I'm so used to modded PSXs that I forget about this issue...

    No they don't work.

    As long as the back isn't some obvious silver, it's very unlikely to be a bootleg.

    I suppose it could be a misprint. I know they used blue discs for PS2 CD based games but I've never seen it on PS1. Then again there have been stranger things, like every single copy of Strider 2 having disc 1 and disc 2 mislabeled. Personally I've had a customer come back after buying Bioshock to show me a completely blank disc with no label at all, but he said the game played fine so he didn't mind.
