    Only Brett could write an article like this, it was very informative because I never realised the PS2 memory card thing until you pointed it out

    I organize my games chronologically. It makes sense since you're probably going to play the newer games more often and you don't have to mess around with Dreamcast and PS3 silliness.

    Shouldve said that was in the UK

    Last few years of ps2 the boxes changed to blue, I think to counter the xbox green. I didn't like it. Cool article Brett

    The N64 boxes in the UK appear to be allowed more artistic licence than in the US. This was the Ocarina of Time box that we had - http://101videogames.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/the-legend-of-zelda-ocarina-of-time-pal-box1.jpg

    I also found the whole article fascinating - is there something wrong with me?

    At the time of the release of the PS1, I read that the reason they had the Saturn cases was because their case final design hadn't been approved by the time of launch. So none had been produced yet.

    "Do you even care? Of course you do. You love games enough to visit a site that’s known for writing about this exact kind of esoteric nonsense." :D So true.

    Wow, a lot of work must have gone into this. Well done! I would have liked more UK box info though ;)

    Out of interest, in the UK we had: 1. Blue Dreamcast boxes! http://www.gamershell.com/static/boxart/large/uk/8430.jpg, http://www.kickemintheghoulies.com/dreamcast%20vf3tb%20pal%20+japan.JPG 2. The GameCube box was slightly different, in that the spine logo was on the left, not the right.

    Happy.

    This has to be my favorite GR article OF THE YEAR. I like things that point out little details that not many people bother to think about on a day-to-day basis. This, and Matt Keast's video game psychology articles are really engaging. Thank you, Brett.

    Man, European cases for consoles like Sega CD (Mega CD in Europe) were vastly different. The N64 cases (most of them) don't have those colors either.

    This actually WAS extremely interesting.

    good work brett, interesting read. I never noticed.
  • JayBeat - November 18, 2010 4:47 a.m.

    Beastly article.
  • G0523 - November 18, 2010 4:42 a.m.

    I thought the Wii logo was in the boxes because they were Nintendo's games, but Tatsunoko vs. Capcom has it, so who knows?
  • AlpineGuy - November 18, 2010 4:41 a.m.

    Sarcastic title aside, I actually found this article interesting. This is the kind of stuff that only GamesRadar has the enthusiasm to do. Keep up the good work, Brett!

    This is the most comprehensive game packaging article in the whole internet.. well done?

    How dare you forget about the red New Super Mario Bros. Wii case! Besides that, this is pretty cool. Amazing how much game boxes have changed.
