    Default Factory sealed or not?

    Hello everyone, need some input from some other collectors. I am curious about PS1 factory sealed games. Please refer to the following auction:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVW

    Wanted to know about the seal itself, have they always used the traditional V shaped seal on the edges of the games even made in 1996 such as the one in the auction? Or has this item been resealed? I own alot of factory sealed games that are 97 and newer and they all have the V shape on the edges of the shrinkwrap, but I don't own anything sealed previous to that to referr to.

    Thanks,
    Gothic_knights

    It doesn't really help that when they bought the camera they were looking for that "extra grainy" quality.

    Madam Achika is correctamundo. A bad pic makes this slightly hard to call. But basically almost all the PSOne games have that hard shrinkwrap with that v seal on the corner. It looks legit from those craptacular pics. However if you happen to have been the high bidder and winner of this auction (at 190 bucks no less), you might have wanted to email the seller to see if you could get some better pics, because when a game like that isnt all that rare, and ones dumping 200 bucks on it, its best to do some serious leg work on it before you make it your own. At that price its not a game as much as it is an investment.

    Adding to the list of PSOne know it alls is QueenOfTheFelines (the VideoGame Forum Mod) and kevincure. All 4 of us know our shit pretty well. Achika isnt that far behind in her realm of PS knowledge and im sure that there are some more too who dont speak up quite as loud, cause some of us can be pretty defening at times.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.
