    This is rather unnecessary and it won't look nice next to the other early and current PS3 game art boxes that we've had so far.. segregation time!​
    I remember Microsoft doing an update to their covers but it was hardly any different all they added was a new 360 logo and a splash of green, on the spine it looked the same (thank god).​

    I guess they were starting to feel boxed in.

    Still, seems a bit silly. I mean, I've heard of recovering, but three-covering? That's just ridiculous.

    I, for one, welcome our Vita-style box layout overlord.

    EDIT: I don't know why, but I hate that "Only On PlayStation" tag from the original. Glad to see they moved it on the newer boxes.

    Sony.
    Known for its heavy change in console design and box layout design.

    Eh, I honestly liked the original PS3 layout better.
    It just reflects the entire console in the font.

    TaeWong would get a boner for the original boy layout

    Now we can all pretend that Vita has games and so does PS4 because of this addition.

    OCD'd collectors will find this rather annoying as so do I.

    Hmm...I wonder if they'll change the Greatest Hits titles covers now too with the different color coding...I hated the red coloring with the red packaging.

    That's nothing, I hear some people think there are 57 states!

    As for cases, none of them look bad, which it pretty much the most important thing, IMO. Yeah, they won't match, well you already have that issue with greatest hits cases or whatever Sony calls their version.

    All the time? I worked on the Nintendo gaming section last year for a company and people/parents were aware of what a Wii and Wii U were, so that line's gotten old.

    It's like someone saying "What is the difference between the Xbox One from before and Xbox One now" or "Is Xbox 360 newer than Xbox One?".

    I'm not saying these mistakes don't happen but they're not that often.

    Took out my vita at school once.... Some fuck said "you still play psp?" confusing my vita for a psp and implying that the psp is outdated when I know for a fact many still use it, including myself. I guess that's just how the "In-crowd" people are.
