    It's annoying because most of the time you don't have a choice; for example, when I went to go pick up heavy rain, I was given a Platinum case by default, even though I brought a ordinary cases to the counter
    I actually end up buying pre-owned copies so I know it won't have a platinum case

    I voted NO since it doesnt bother me at all unless your a game collector which im guessing you are than they do stand out like a sore thumb in your collection.

    Those cases are pretty ugly. I dont like having the red ones. But, you can always buy replacement PS3 clear cases from Best Buy/Amazon. You would still have the ugly cover art though...

    I voted no because, at the end of the day, the ONLY thing that matters is the game inside the box.

    I give less than a shit if the box has different artwork/color/etc.

    Hell, I used to throw the boxes away and put all my games in a binder back when I had a large enough collection.

    If you have OCD, then you at least have an excuse. Everyone else.....find a new hobby or something. Lol.

    Ye I looked up the ' greatest hits ' and they're not the best but they're a whole mile better than in the UK. I really don't know what they were thinking when they decided on the design for the plat editions...maybe they were stoned? As posted before I believe they should go for a see-through, quite-dark blue for the case and then cut out a bit of the black 'PS3' box at the top and put in a slim silvery line that reads 'platinum edition' or whatever. Oh well, I guess we're stuck with these pieces o' shite for quite a while. God help us when they decide on the cases for the PS4's plat editions/greatest hits! Sad story eh?

    You might as well make an introduction thread, and the amount of welcomes you will get might convince you to stay on the site!

    If I get a platinum game which isn't very often at all I keep all the cases that the PSN cards come in as they are clear cases I swap it over & toss the platinum case out

    yellow cases sucks worse than ours here in Aust we have silver cases but platinum has always sucked with playstation I hated platinum games on the PS1 & 2 like seriously you had to strip all the colour/color from the disk & give us a mirror to replace mad disk art not cool

    metal cases annoy me as well I like them but would rather keep them safe for future value MW3, Batman AC preorders never came with plastic cases Uncharted 3 preorder case sucks balls for you have to slide the disk into it's place risking scratching it & infamous 2 limited edition don't even sit in my DVD rack properly its too thin & keeps falling down into the guts of my DVD holder which is why I now use a shelf instead

    If I want the version with all the DLC included I'll buy a greatest hits version. I usually pick up an older used version from gamestop. If the case looks to be in bad shape I don't hesitate to ask for a different one. Then, when I go to trade the game in or return it within the 7 days I toss the old disk in the greatest hits case. They usually don't care.

    I'm very surprised that people hate the Platinum/Greatest Hits edition of a PS3/PS2/PSP game. I always thought I was the only one who though it looked incredibly ugly and avoid them at all cost.

    I don't care for either platinum cases or greatest hits editions. I would rather have the original black label copy

    The only reason they are like that is to catch your eye in the shop , when you got one amongst your games at home it sticks out like fuck same thing , just to catch the eye if they did change it they would change it to something that did the same thing and you would probably hate that too
