Looking for info : SH1 promo disc (NOT FOR SALE)

Post by Ichi Sumeragi on Mon Jan 25, 2016 6:20 pm

Hey SH fans,

I'd like to be a fan, but I'm too frightened to play any of those games alone. :D

I do have some games though, and I found this promo disc last year. I think it is just a regular promo disc (with the full, identical retail game on it) but I can't find many info. If you guys happen to know anything I don't, feel free. ;)
Sorry for the owl picture, it somehows flips it when I upload.

Also, I don't know if the image is up somewhere (if it's of any interest), but if you want it I'll try to upload it.

Additional notes:
- NOT FOR SALE, I don't even know if this has much value or not and I'm keeping it either way
- Sorry if I'm in the wrong section. :?

Thanks !

It is. Thanks for the link :)

I've already seen that link though, I didn't knew if I could believe it but as you're linking it, that's probably a nice reference.

Do you happen to know where did they found the 1000 copies thing though? Also, if I can have a quick pricecheck (again not for sale, just for personnal information) :)

Thanks a lot !

Yeah, no idea about that, sorry. I imagine it would be worth whatever collectors were willing to pay for it.

The 1000 copies thing came from a Sony rep who more or less said they usually had 1000 promos made for PS1 games, but I was not able to ask any follow up questions as this came via a (reputable) friend of mine. I don't even remember which branch the Sony rep was in, if I ever knew. I don't like to use unverifiable information, so I'll probably remove this text whenever I get around to it.

Even if true, I am sure it varies from publisher to publisher, and from game to game. I am pretty sure it's not more than 1000 though. Use it as a ballpark figure if you will.

This disc was almost unheard of until a few years ago, when I finally got mine. I don't remember exactly. 2010? 2012? I paid $100-150, I cannot remember. I think the price was pretty high for the next couple of discs sold, but a fair amount has surfaced since then, and now I don't think you would get $100 if you tried to sell it. Actually, probably far below that.
