    Default Longbox Playstation Collection (once again!) COMPLETE!

I believe the following list has every U.S. Playstation game released in longbox format...102 total. If you've got something to add, you better have photographic proof to back it up with, because at this point I'm not believin' it until I'm seein' it!

    I tear up a bit every time I see "Return Fire."

    One of the greatest multi-player games E-V-E-R. No game has ever inspired as much actual violence amongst my group of friends as "Return Fire" did between 1996 and 1998.

    So beautiful.

    an excellent collection. I can't even imagine the time spent on collecting specific long box games.

    however....

    looks like you are missing the long box version of space hulk. good luck finding that one.

    Those look all sorts of awesome, all together like that.

    Why the early switch from long boxes to jewel cases, anyway? Besides the obvious convenience factor.

    Thats good stuff.

    Do you mind if I save your picture and use it for future reference? I would like to do that sometime when the extra funds kick in.

    I'm pretty sure the change from boxes to CD cases was due to price, stores being able to fit more of them into the same spot, and the longboxes not being the best format for 2 CD's.

    Remember boxes are the first to go to save money. The first batch of Intellivison games had boxes that opened like books and a window for the game. Then they switched to the open at end style that has been used ever since. And INTV tried to get rid of boxes and instructions all together and just send games in ziplocks with a sheet of instrcutions, but customer complaints caused them to go back to boxes.

    Thanks everyone, it was fun to put together, with the exception of the last few months of finding nothing but air on those phantom titles. Most titles I got for between .99 and 4.99 from a really cool Funco manager who would let me check out new longbox arrivals before putting them on the floor...sadly, he no longer works there . The last title I got was Street Fighter Alpha: Warriors Dreams...which of course showed up at a local gamestore a few days after the one from Ebay showed up. Probably my best find was a $10 BIN for a Psychic Detective that was mint and complete...never seen that one in the wild. I got about a dozen of these through Ebay, the rest through thrifting, rummaging, used game stores and trading.

    Rich

    P.S. If there's a longbox Space Hulk (not on any list I've seen so far) out there, show me a photo!

    Are there games that have both plastic and cardboard long box versions? Also, are there any other kinds of longbox?

    Very nice! I parted with my longbox games for $5 apiece recently, had no idea they were worth anything to collectors.
