    Thank you all for the comments As you can see I'm a big fan of box variations. There's a bit of work behind every system, as many of them were only released in specific countries and are difficult to track. For example, I've been looking for 3 years for four spanish Mega Drive 1 editions that were advertised in gaming magazines from the 90s, but until now I haven't managed to find any of them, not for sale, not in the pictures of other collectors, no trace at all (except that they were seen in gaming shops at the time, so they really managed to reach the market). It's not a big surprise as here in Spain we have some kind of allergy to cardboard boxes and most of them tend to end up in the thrash bin. As all four were only Sonic The Hedgehog editions with a customized outer cardboard sleeve, they are almost impossible to find. As for the current systems, I have been tempted by various Wii U bundles (I love the Zelda Wind Waker HD pack), as well as Xbox One and PS4 packs, but I'm still waiting a bit to jump to the next gen.

    Welcome to my hardware collection I started collecting PAL PS1 games many years ago, as the original Playstation has been my favourite gaming machine since I tried it. After trying to get a complete PAL PS1 set, I found the task quite difficult. I expanded my collection with different retro and current games and systems, with a special focus on special editions, promo and press-kits. I’ve also always liked development-related hardware and software. I started collecting PAL console editions, bundles and packs, a theme that has become the main focus of my collection. I won’t include any retail software in the thread for the moment.

  3. Hello from Spain

    Thank you all for your welcome As far as I know, I've been able to find country-exclusive editions in the UK, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Australia, Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden and Finland so chances are you should have at least a couple of norwegian exclusives. I know of one, the NDS 20 ar Jubileums pack (found the boards while looking for info about it). About the spanish collecting scene, it's quite difficult to collect here, but the reasons are not related to the economic crisis. Prices of retrogame related items tend to be more expensive and with a worse condition than in the UK or France, because most people think that if a game is more than 5 years old it must be worth a ton. We have a high rate of unemployment, but there is a strong submerged economy, so the situation is not as bad as it seems at first glance.
  4. Hello from Spain

    Hei alle sammen First of all, I'm sorry for writing this in english. I haven't got a clue of norwegian and I've only managed to browse the boards thanks to Google Translator. I'm a 30 year old game collector from Spain. My favourite gaming machines are the Sega Megadrive, which was my first home console and the first Playstation. I've been collecting for over 6 years, although my focus has been shifting a bit. I first wanted a complete PAL PS1 set, a task I deemed almost impossible. Then I found the current focus of my collection, PAL console bundles, special editions and packs. It was searching for information about exclusive norwegian console packs that I found the boards, and decided to register. I hope to be able to participate and contribute to the forums
