So I'm looking for PS2 version of GTA III - the original, Version 1.40 release. I wanna know exactly which discs are 1.40.

How many people have this version? What does the disc look like? What's the code on the left side of the disc above the PS2 logo?

  • NTSC-U/C: PS2 black label on dvd disc and the dvd case, SLUS code 20062 on dvd case and dvd disc.
  • NTSC-U/C Greatest Hits: PS2 red label on dvd disc and the dvd case, it's the same SLUS code but greatest hits abbrevation added at the end (SLUS-20062GH), it's the second version of GTA III for the PS2, the differences aren't so noticeable so R* didn't change the SLUS code so... save games are compatibles between versions.
  • PAL Europe: PS2 black label on dvd disc and the dvd case, SLES code 50330 on dvd case and dvd disc. There are a lot of variants of the PAL version with different censorship on it for other countries but I don't know if they are the same SLES code as the Australian version, France/Germany version (?), etc.

Yeah, pretty much only the early UK versions are 1.40.

Both SLES-50330/UK#? Would be nice if we can document the PAL versions somewhere.

Can you post pics?

That's interesting. From what I've seen, I thought only SLES-50330/UK without #'s are 1.40.

For anyone else who wants to participate, here's a way to check if you have 1.40 or not:

 

Pop your disc in your PC. Navigate to GTA3\DATA\PATHS. If FLIGHT2.DAT has a Date Modified of 24/09/2001 at 2:01 PM, you have 1.40.

 

SLES-50330/UK is 1.40

SLES-50330/UK# is 1.60

SLES-50793-T is 1.60

 

These are my three PAL versions of GTA III on PS2.

Mine is the same.

Interesting and useful, I will check a PAL copy of GTA III that I have since some time.

holy sh*t the artwork is awesome! I also have a original GTA III 1,40 copy for PS2, but it's the german version, though.. No blood & Kill Frenzy :D

but you can bypass it by setting the system language to english. 

 

I think that's the only version that has the original "The Exchange" cutscene audio and the train gate glitch.

Ah, I can die in peace now. I always wanted to know that. Since nobody confirmed it before, until now.

Yeah, if you drive on the ramp slowly, you fall down to the subway entrance and then glitch through the gate. 

This was fixed in later versions by making the col of the gate much bigger  :D

 

But it still works on the mobile version, likely because it's based of a older version of GTA III.

Jesus... I never knew about that, but seriously, whoever designed that col should have done it right the first time, just like a bunch of other R* assets. I swear these guys are either overworked or underpaid.

UK eBay I see only SLES-50330# and SLES-50330/UK# games. Both editions are the second print with 1.60 software? The # sign show that these games are second editions?

I just checked both of my discs (US GH and US non-GH) and it looks like both are 1.60.

 

What exactly are the differences between 1.40 and 1.60? Is there any way to spot 1.40 discs from the outside, without looking at the timestamp of FLIGHT2.DAT?

Well yeah, if the SLES code on the disc is exactly

 

SLES-50330/UK

 

then it's 1.40. Were there any 1.40 US pressings? I don't think there were.

Yep, the only way to physically determine whether it's 1.40 or 1.60 is by looking at the code of the disk.

Also, there are no US versions which are 1.40, from the looks of it.
