Just picked one up today that's 100% complete. I bought it for like $20, and I haven't seen an American copy in ages on eBay, and the last time I saw an American big box copy on eBay, I think the final bidding price was around $147. Is what I got good or naw?

 

I'll provide pics if anyone asks.

For some reason there's been this big boom in prices on audio/visual collectible items in the last few years. I'd pay $147 if money was not an issue in my life, but under no other circumstances. I've deliberately burned myself a few times for rare stuff, and it hurts, but at the end of the day the sale prices on Discogs and eBay don't truly reflect what the item is worth; that's up to you to decide. In this case, I think $20 is a bargain. $30-40 is what I'd pay. More than $40 is going to cause some buyer's remorse unless I was fanatical.

You hit jackpot. Over here in EU, there were only 2 listings for it during the course of whole 2017 and both got sold for over 170GBP, which is like 230USD.

Interesting. What I know, looks a little different.

Thanks for the picture man. Did not know there were two versions of that.

Do you have more by any chance?

I saw this picture few months ago. I was thinking, is it not bigger than the regular Big Boxes?

My copy actually stands out as the 2nd or 3rd tallest in my collection.

I hope to get the London pack in the big box too, but I'm pretty sure it's gonna be far from what I paid for this game.

Wow, I knew it was worth something, but damn, that's pretty impressive.

I don't know the USA editions well, but on the box which I showed earlier the subtitle was "Original and uncensored" so I think that is the real first edition.

I looked it up. If all is true, the date of the file folders on the first release is 02-09-1998, and the second edition is 03-31-1998.

Mine says 03-31-1998 in the directory files, however the disc has the same cover as the box, and not with the "original and uncensored" thing going on. Are you sure they're not different versions? Because the British version and the American version have different dates and everything in the directories I've noticed.

That's very strange, my box, disc, etc. looks the exact same as that poster's.
