    Default What PSP games have oversized cardboard boxes?

    I recently picked up a copy of Prinny: Can I Really Be The Hero since I love platformers, and was sort of thinking about getting a copy of Lunar Limited Edition (missed the Amazon deal yesterday! Damn!) Beyond these two games, have there been any other PSP games that feature oversized cardboard boxes? Is it only these two titles, or have there been others? It seems there is no way that I can Google search for it, as the searches keep turning up the limited edition consoles almost exclusively.

    Prinny, Persona, and Lunar. I'm not aware of any others.
    Everything in the above post is opinion unless stated otherwise.

    So far 5 if you include the Death Jr. Limited edition.



    Other 4 titles are what Kupo & Xexyz already said.

    I think that's about it. I have Prinny and Persona myself. They stood out rather well, and I can't think of any others.

    So, I guess my other question is what are the extras?

    Prinny has a soundtrack.

    Lunar has the soundtrack and cards.

    From your picture, it looks like Death Jr had a soundtrack.

    Both Persona and Mimana Iyar Chronicle doing a couple Google searches I got nothing as to why they would be in boxes? Soundtracks, I assume?

    With Persona according to the box there's a two disc soundtrack, so full soundtrack I believe. Prinny has a soundtrack with 20 songs, so not the full soundtrack? I'm not sure about Lunar because I just ordered it yesterday because of Amazon's deal.

    Lunar comes with the Soundtrack and 13 "Bromide" cards. From the Gamestop website:

    Ack! I forgot that the Limited Edition came in a box. I've got the Limited Edition packaging for the UMD case but I'm missing the cardboard box and the items inside.

    Looks like all of the ones I was aware of have been mentioned.

    Edit: My mind is failing me. I thought that Death Jr. came in a box but PapaStu is correct, it was a box attached (as if his pics weren't proof enough). I DO have that tucked away in a box somewhere now that I think about it. I can't believe I slipped up on that.

    Incorrect. DeathJr LE did not come in an oversized cardboard box. It has a second case (as seen above) attached to it with that sticky glue stuff (that can be rubbed off with ones thumb). It came with a mini CD that had a digital comic on it and some UMD storage cases.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    I haven't picked it up yet goatdan, but I believe the only thing that merits the cardboard box for Mimana Iyar Chronicle is the soundtrack CD. I don't know if it's a full soundtrack CD or just select songs either.

    Yep, if we're expanding to slip covers, the Canadian version of Platypus and several other PSP games came with slip covers.

    I just wish they could make these boxes have wider spines solely rather than wider across the front too, but considering the size of standard jewel case, I guess they have no option. These games look really awkward among normal PSP cases, even more so if you want to alphabetize them. I eventually had to cave and just store the boxes elsewhere and only keep the game cases on my PSP shelf. As opposed to my PS2 collection, where the limited editions can fit nicely among everything else, even the massive Growlanser Generations Deluxe.

    It's not even a slip cover. Death Jr. was a special annoyance to say the least. Below are pics of my sealed copy.

    I can verify that inside my persona box there is a jewel case with a 2-disc soundtrack. There's a note from composer Shoji Meguro on the inside front cover of the jewel case.

    Damn, I've been trying to find a sealed one of those for a while now.

    Just a heads up for people looking to buy Mimana: Iyar Chronicle. I was in a GS last night trying to pick one up and they only had the display copy. The guy went to pull the gutted contents from the drawer and I noticed the music CD was in a paper sleeve instead of in a CD tray. I opted against buying because I wasn't sure if that's how it came from Aksys or not (he wasn't sure either). Since he was a friend, he called around to the other stores to see if they had one. I went to one of the stores who did and same thing, display copy. I got to looking at their copy and it too had the music CD in a paper sleeve.

    The heads up is for anyone expecting the CD to be in a CD case, which it's not. Seems a little odd on Aksys' part to go with a box like that but skimp on the CD case.

    Ya, they stick out a lot. It looks very odd.

    Ages ago at MicroCenter. I'm going over there tomorrow to browse about, if I see anything I'll give you a heads up.
