Strange Dreamcast Box?

Post#1 » Wed Jun 27, 2018 6:30 pm

Hello,

My old dreamcast broke awhile back and I've been wanting to get a new one for a while as I still have all my old games, controllers, memory cards etc. Suffice to say, I found a deal for $50 That comes with the system, cords, 2 controllers, 2 memory cards and a copy of Sonic Shuffle and Sonic Adventure 2. Great deal, but, upon looking at the image included with the listing, I noticed the Sonic Adventure 2 box looked a bit odd. Is this case normal or is it a bootleg of some sorts? Seller says it's original but I've never seen a dreamcast case like that. I apologize if the answer is obvious, it's been awhile since I studied dreamcast facts haha

Thanks guys!

It’s just a dvd case. Game might be original but the case is not.

That's what I was thinking at first but what threw my off was that the actual cover looked really well done. it looked like nothing had been stretched out by hand but perhaps who ever made it was just really good at Photoshop.

Regardless, a copy of the game in a nice looking case is all I need!

Does everyone agree it's just a custom made dvd case?

Of course, the fact that it's a custom case doesn't mean that it isn't a pirated copy of the game in the case.

If you search eBay you can find these reproduction covers for sale!

Of course, I didn't meant to imply that haha. Again, I was just surprised that it looked so good for a customer case so I wanted to make sure it wasn't some special edition or alternate release.

Thanks everyone!
