    Default GameCube Player's Choice.

    Someone please help me. I've decided to collect gamecube games. Are the Player's choice different then the original? Should I collect both? Or one kind? What's the difference between them? Can you tell the difference of them outside of the cases?

    Unless you're a really big fan of a certain game I wouldn't care about variants and just get whatever you found cheaper first. Then play the game and if it's a really good game go get the other version for completeness.

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]

    On the PS2 there are a few games where the Greatest Hits offered new levels and features. I'm not sure if any of the Gamecube Players Choice does this, but they are the newest revision. The Players Choice logo in itself has little collectable difference to me, funny how some collectors prefer the non choice version. If anything a PS2GH or GCPC may have a lower production run. On the other hand, I found older copies of Gamecube games having full color manuals, where the newer version of the same game went to black and white pages.

    This is some good knowledge to know. I just picked up the beginning of a gamecube collection yesterday..if there is no real difference, then it won't matter what I get first.

    EDIT: Although, in the end...I'll probably want both versions anyway, regardless of any difference or not.

    As someone who has a complete US Cube set, then generally there isn't much difference. I just chose not to get the Player's Choice releases, and stuck to all the full price editions instead. A couple of games have updated versions in the PC edition (Metroid Prime springs to mind), and the PC release of Pac-Man World 2 might be the easiest way for you to acquire Pac-Man Vs.

    I collect both. I have not seen many differences in game disks or manuals.
    The cover artwork is different with the obvious yellow "Player's Choice" on top front edge and yellow spine behind the GC logo.
    Star Wars Rogue Squadron II went from color to a black & white manual in the PC version.
    Super Monkey Ball 2 manual has a noticeably less glossy manual cover on the PC version.
    Minor stuff.
