Joy and Eyebrows move copies in Japan, Emo and Angst sell 'em in America. Damn, they literally made a cover out of that idoitic sketch Captain Quark drew for their invasion operation.

I was speaking idiomatically.

The Ratchet covers remind me of the recent slew of Prince of Persia's.





The next Ratchet needs just a bit more generic rage though!

I really like the art style on those Castlevania box art. They are my favorites!

Although I did cheat for these which are manual covers for the most part, that are similar to the cover art

Haha, you know, set together like that, it's like that Paris Hilton collage where she has the same look on her face in every picture. That, or the covers make me think the Prince just kept squeezing into every picture.

Yeah, especially the artworks look breathtaking. However, the US cover of Castlevania: Symphony of Night is nothing compared to the Japanese one.

Just compare



with



and



Somewhat ridiculous. There seems to be a great fear of using artworks and stuff like that in western regions.

I must be one of the few that thinks that most FF covers look awful, seeing as how they are always posted. It might be that massive black bar at the bottom.

This, however, I think is very beautiful:



As posted on the old board,
here's the holographic version
of Metroid Prime Echoes.



Not to forget the thoroughly
well done packaging of
Electroplankton.


Yeah, so I like shiny stuff =P

Was that Ace Combat cover a joke? Unless the keyword was mundane- spot on!

Except for FFTA's cover (awesomeness concentrated), the rest are pretty meh.

Hmm... battles of prince of persia... I play-tested it when it was still on early stage. On sheet I mean. It was a great idea. Then developed so badly....

Why would they do that? Why not just keep the godly cover and use it for all countries.

Also does anyone know if ESIV Oblvion has a special PAL cover? Or do only some games have different covers?

This thing is sticky, and I don't like it. I don't appreciate it.

Ahaha, wow, Square's keepin' the tradition of hilariously awful American Final Fantasy box art going!

And PAL Oblivion shares the same cover as America.

Holy shit, yes. I remember getting this game and wondering why there was an old man on the front, thinking that was the pilot (quickly found out this wasn't the case).
