Recommended Posts

This was just sold at ebay , i am wondering if its factory sealead because it doesn´t have Y fold. I seen another copy somewhere  like this so i am not sure if they didn´t used Y seal for this game

I'm going to have to follow this one.  The hangtab appears to be yellowed as if it's old, so that actually has it going in it's favor.

However, I actually bought every Squaresoft title for the PS1 (ironically, except this game because it was my first PS1 game and I bought it from a friend) and I don't ever recall seeing any games wrapped like this, especially from SE.

I would expect that if it was an end of life GH title, but this is a black label.  It makes me wonder if it was a reseal from 20 years or so, maybe from a game store or even at a shop like walmart that had an open item.  But, the fact that it has an h-seam like a Nintendo game is also odd... that had to have been mechanically sealed, no?

I'm no expert on sealed PS1 games that aren't of a typical seal.  Regardless, this looks like it could be legit to me, but I don't know.

If Jone says it's legit, then you're golden. 

I am not saying its not legit , i am asking if its factory sealed . Wata grades factory sealed games as 1st party and resealed as 3rd party . Is this game a 3rd party sealed game ? I am asking because there`s a similar sealead copy in my radar ...

Yes it's legit and no question.

Absolutely agree with Jone. This is a very standard PS1 overlap seal, and is actually quite common for this game. I've seen countless examples over the years. The Y-Fold I would even say is more rare, particularly for the 'Realistic Violence' prints.
