Yes, There is no # but the version come from the EU trilogy released in 2009, not from the released one in 2001. That's why I am surprised...

I have me doubts about this one. Especially if this copy of the product is acquired used.

You can check here https://picclick.fr/Jeu-PS2-GTA-III-Grand-Theft-Auto-3-144252875320.html click on the picture and you can zoom it

 

Other one : http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2022/04/6/1643415692-gta3.jpg

 

This one the disc is not same : http://image.noelshack.com/fichiers/2022/04/6/1643415864-gta32.jpg ??!

 

Original GTA III French cover https://image.jeuxvideo.com/images-sm/p2/g/t/gta3p20f.jpg from 2001

 

The white cover is from the trilogy. You can even see behind the case there is no bar code but it's written  " Can not be sold separately ".

 

It's very strange..

People have been swapping discs, clearly. I can determine that the covers are new because it has the general PEGI age rating instead of the French system. All releases past the update if one happens should be v1.60. Does the map and manual barcodes match with each other (also match with the back cover barcode, if any are seen)? If they don't, something is definitely fishy. (With PS2 GTA Stories games, INT English variants recycle UK English material, me store bought copies prove that.)

I've bought a few games used which have had Black Label covers but Platinum disc inside (I recall also vice versa, but memory might be doing tricks).

A friend of mine has a store bought (!) Platinum release of XIII (read: Thirteen) for PS2, the disc isn't Platinum looking for some reason.

I have found again two other people with the same EURO disc without # from the trilogy version. So maybe here in France Rockstar ( or the factories ? i don't know how it work ) took old unusued discs and place them in the trilogy version to avoid any costs or something like that

I'll only believe that if someone has a FACTORY SEALED copy and opens it and one such thing is found. Also, this stuff for European releases is manufactured in Austria in all cases. First batch made is v1.40, then after v1.60 is received, all manufactured discs are using that master copy.

I'm still saying people have been simply swapping some DVD-ROM's.

I just found a French version with the white cover, SLES50330/EURO and with the barcode 300506 on the back, what a surprise it's not from the trilogy pack, but on the poster the barcode come from the platinum version..

 

I still wonder if there is a SLES50330 french version without the "#" from 2001 with the original french black cover, I still don't find it.

I got a SLES50330/EURO disc without # and it's 1.60. So I can confirm that every /EURO is not only 1.40 but also 1.60. I guess that if we want to be sure to get the 1.40 better to buy SLES50330 or SLES50330/UK without #

Huh interesting. That can be a factory stuff error. But are there more such discs in teh wild, if that's indeed the same disc in all them images? And what if the same is with "/UK" and "SLES-50330" discs as well? We don't know.

Case looks unoriginal though, PS2 games don't have those kind of cases seen in the image tho

EDIT: Redump shows v1.60 has been encountered in many discs, among "SLES-50330", "SLES-50330/UK" and "SLES-50330/EURO". Huh. Meguesses this game is an example to the rule I've noted.

Lol you really think I am now wasting time to lie? Just admit you are wrong. Buy yourself some /EURO disc from any European countries on Ebay, you can find a lot of italian spanish etc disc with /EURO written without # so I will not be surprised if they have also the v1.60.

 

And yes the case is not the original one.

Nope, look at this: http://redump.org/disc/510/

Also, no "/UK" at v1.40 department, oddly enough: http://redump.org/disc/4262/

But it's strange that /UK is not written there because the moderator here posted that he has the /UK disc with 1.40. Redump forgot to add it ?

Anyway I begin to be lost with all these code lol. I had started to doubt when I saw lot of french resellers were selling /EURO disc with the white case from the double or trilogy pack , and then checked to https://www.serialstation.com/titles/SLES/50330.

 

So the only way to check the version is by the files in the disc... If of course before to buy resellers really want to waste their time doing it LOL

I looked at the depths of ebay to find a SLES50330 code written on the disc with nothing after, but only found "SLES50330/UK" selling by a Australian, only the disc...

I can't find the "supposed to be the 1.40 version " where everything fits together (case, dvd, booklet and map)...

I found one "SLES-50330/UK" locally. Had to ask what it contains, want an oddity of a non "#"'d v1.60 to replace other of the "#"'d ones in personal collection.

OK so found a disc, seller couldn't answer to version requests, sent it for quite cheap, got it now and...

Dammit. This disc I got is another v1.40.

Got some v1.40 too

For people who still don't know, there are two different posters of GTAIII.
The first printed one was with the red background https://i.imgur.com/JUzxhKD.jpg, the second one is with the orange/black background https://i.imgur.com/ymvmTpF.jpg
I noticed that the red one usually comes with the v1.40 and some v1.60 ( UK UK# / EURO EURO# ) This is the most uncommon poster. There is no logo and the gun of the triad member is cut off.
The orange/black one is the most widespread.

Cool, congratulations. I'll have to get the Australian version sometime. It's a Great cover.

 

Did you check the MAIN.SCM like @thehambone explained in his thread? Just to check if it really is a 1.40 version.

Also there's 3 posters actually, the third one is like the second but says GTA III.

You not showing the case spine (!) has mostly led to that assumption. Still would say that the thing would be crucial to see - would help with legitimacy. (As with online selling, everything counts to get those potential buyers and which many neglect.)

Are you only here to question everytime what people say ? Like before when I got a /EURO v1.60 disc that you did't believe... I'm not going to waste my time again and send many messages for nothing. Chill man, really, we are here to enjoy and share our stuffs and experiences, we are not in competition.
