I just got this in the mail a couple of days ago won off ebay, MTV Music Generator 2 Sampler Kit. It comes in a bigbox (kinda like Growlanser Deluxe) with instructions a mic, and a dongle device that hooks up through PS2s USB to allow the import of audio samples that can then be used in your Music Generator 2 tracks.

I believe this was only available through Codemasters website, and it dosent come with the game unfortunately so I'm not sure it'll make your list CRT. For those intrested in PS2 music generator 2 creation theres also a hack using the Sing Star dongle where you cut the plastic out around the inputs to allow connections of other jacks other than a Sing Star Mic. This would have the same effect of the MTV Sampler Kit incase you cant find one.

Edit:O.P.M Dec. Issue 75- comes w/ Final Fantasy X-2 Eternal Calm Demo, Prequel video to the FFX-2 game!

Thanks and welcome to Racketboy! I already have a similar title on the OP List. However, it does look to be a different version compared to what I posted before:

Dragonball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 Collector's Edition (Poster, Art Book)

I added your input, Thankyou! :D

Dragonball Z: Budokai 3 Collectors Edition GH or PAL (Bonus DVD, Costumes, Duel Language)

Wiki wrote:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_Ball_Z:_Budokai#Budokai_3

The game released in Japan by Bandai on February 10, 2005. Like Budokai 2 before it, the Japanese version of Budokai 3 added several costumes not present in the North American and European versions. The North American Greatest Hits version of Budokai 3 adds these costumes, as well as the option to switch the audio to Japanese for the first time in North America. This version was also released in Europe as a re-release of the game under the title Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 - Director's Cut. From this release onwards, all Dragon Ball Z games in North America and Europe were released with dual voice language options in English and Japanese in order to please all fans

That sampler adapter looks interesting. Thanks a lot, now I am on the hunt for it, might have to get that Singstar Mic set for a later mod. Great info on that hack! Even though the software is separate, worth adding to the OP List for the obscurity, Thanks! :D

There are numerous Demo discs that have features not found on the final copy. This can be huge, a separate listing?

Yes, the FFX-2 eternal calm could be a seperate listing the demo is an exclusive video leading into FFX-2, a nice companion for a 2 disc set.
The Sampler kit is well considerable too since the actual game can fit in the box naturally.

Suikoden IV has a preorder art book.
Grandia III has two discs.
Yakuza 2 has two discs.


Not sure if you're really including JP region stuff, but if you are,

-Nippon Ichi srpg limited editions. (I think there's one for each game, but there's at least one for Disgaea / 2, and Phantom Kingdom.) Art book and soundtrack.

-Gensou Suikoden IV and V limited editions. (IV has an art book and keychain. V has a bunch of stuff, I think. Not really sure what)

-Wlld Arms 3, Gensou Suikoden IV and V each have clear cases and double sided covers.

-Final Fantasy X and X International each have bonus DVDs. Dragon Quest V has a bonus DQ VIII DVD. Final Fantasy XII International has a bonus DVD. Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ has two game discs.

Good idea on the FFX-2 demo disc, worth looking into collecting for the bonus video. The Shadow of the Colossus Demo also worth getting, it has a "bug" to explore the top of the mountain that the statues are in.

That sampler kit really caught my interest, I'm going to keep an eye out. If I see the Sing Star microphones on the cheap, I may go that route. There are numerous and more powerful sampler programs for the PC and Mac with hard drive capability though. It would be nice if there is a sound sampler program that took advantage of the fat PS2 Hard Drive. Just another thing to watch, maybe a Japanese or modded version that does this.

:idea: Absolutely interested in ALL Special Editions to include the list! :mrgreen:

Amazing what is all out there, thanks for the additions. Added all of your list (except the Final Fantasies which are already appear) to the OP List. :D

Dragon Quest V (Japan Dragon Quest VIII DVD Preview)
http://www.eurogamer.net/forum/thread/133150

Time marched forward and a couple of months before Dragon Quest VIII released on the PS2, Dragon Quest V saw a release and an extensive remake guided by the hands of its creator on the same platform. It even came with a DVD preview of Dragon Quest VIII. The game was released on March 25th, 2004 and then rereleased on July 20th, 2006 under the Ultimate Hits label. Together, the remake sold 1.8 million copies, creating a record for the highest sales of a remade game not in a compilation for Japan.

I almost had a chance to buy it some time ago at my job. But I took too long to get it. It went to zero and sent back to the warehouse.

It was clearance and in some old unseen part of the store. I couldn't buy it when I asked the supervisor. I wasn't gonna pay $20 for it.

I just checked some of mine and there are a few which don't seem to be on the main list.
(I'll check all the rest of mine later when I get some more time)

These are all PAL releases, so I'm not sure if these particular versions had NTSC counterparts:

-King Kong (Limited Collectors Edition)
2-disc steelbook w/ plastic slip cover. Includes a bonus DVD and limited edition game art.

-Resident Evil 4 (Limited Edition). The one already on the list is the Premium Edition.
single disc steelbook. Includes an "exclusive game guide booklet"

-Silent Hill 2 (Special 2-Disc Set)
Digipak style packaging with outer cover.
Includes a Making of featurette, trailers, biographies, etc, and exclusive SH2 collectors sticker.

-Tomb Raider Anniversary (Collectors Edition 3-Disc Set)
Digipak style packaging with outer cover
Includes a Retrospective Documentary, Exclusive Soundtrack Disc, and a gallery of TR artwork and collection of trailers.
