I tried it on a regular DVD player and my PC and no dice. It appears to be a PS2-only disc.
Okay thanks! Changed the OP:
Hitman Trilogy (Extra Disc Kane & Lynch PS2 Demo)

I added two more games to the OP list. Not exactly Special Editions but these two have a very unique feature. The PlayStation Analog Joystick SCPH-1110 or more commonly known as the PS1 Flightstick. Strange that neither game manual mentions this. PS1 games have an icon on the back cover.

Most PS2 games do not work with this controller. Some games that use the PS2 digital pad can work with the Flightstick in Digital Mode. However when the Flightstick is set to Analog Mode, out of more then a thousand PS2 games, there are only two that utilize this feature.

R-Type Final (PS1 Flightstick Analog Mode)
One of the great SHMUPS with upgraded graphics. This game actually works in both Digital and Analog mode of the PS1 Flightstick. Analog Mode works the same as Digital, no change in movement speed in proportion to the stick movement.

The ending credits of R-Type Final has the Blueman Group song Piano Smasher.

XGIII Extreme G Racing (PS1 Flightstick Analog Mode)
Also works in both Digital and Analog. In Analog Mode there is a change in movement speed in proportion to the stick. The more the stick is pushed the further the motorcycle will lean. This makes XGIII the ONLY PS2 game that works in TRUE ANALOG with the PS1 Flightstick.

The PS1 DUAL ANALOG has the unique Flightstick Mode, enabled with a green light.

Wiki originally had a third game listed which is Metal Slug Anthology. I tested it with the Flightstick with only the Digital Mode working, Other digital pad controlled games such as Gradius III and IV also works with the Flightstick, but in Digital Mode only. I updated Wiki to reflect this.

Know of any other PS2 Special Editions? Please post.

I don't know if this would count as it's a standard feature but requires you to have another game to unlock it.

Burnout Revenge "Unlock and crash Madden Challenge van (exclusive to Madden NFL 06 owners)"


I think it should count as "Extra content" because you only recieve it if you own Madden 06 and you unlock the vehicle.

Interesting, I looked up Wiki, it looks like two game saves can get you bonus cars.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burnout_Revenge#Bonus_vehicles

Bonus vehicles

There are two extra vehicles that can be unlocked by the presence of a saved game from another title on the memory card or hard drive when you first create your profile. A Madden NFL 06 save will unlock the Madden Challenge Bus and a Burnout 3: Takedown save will unlock the Dominator Assassin. Both of these cars are available only for Crash events. They are also available for online use if you own an online adapter. Although it may not be hidden, after reaching the "Elite" rank, you unlock the Black Elite Racer, which has some references to the game, Black. Example, there are bullet holes all around the car, and the license plate on the back reads "Kellar", the player's character in Black.
Not really a Special Edition but a great Find! THANKS! I added:

Burnout Revenge (Extra Content from Madden 06 and Burnout 3 Takedown)

Say, can you edit your Reply to make the pic 700 wide? Or just crop the Madden information off the cover if you like. It will be easier to see.
