Any place I'm likely to find it? Any CAGs willing to trade or sell a sealed copy? That re-release cover is hideous!

Yeah, I'm not sure how Konami could have thought that having a picture of the game, as the cover of the game would be a good idea. I mean it was bad enough to have these huge red/green stripes accross the greatest hits covers, but this a bit overkill to those who actually care about it.

I ordered it online when it dropped to about $10, and was a bit shocked when it arrived. You could always do what I'm planning: print out a replacement cover. you can find the one for Dawn of Sorrow over here:

Where'd you get it for $10?

Don't forget those lovely yellow stripes of Player's Choice games either. :roll:

It was $10 at Best Buy a few weeks back when the Konami's Best version was released. Some stores still have shelf labels for $10, but most don't and reflect the $19.99 price. If your Best Buy had the original cover in-stock during the drop, then it could've been yours for the taking but most stores had only KB.

Yeah.. the only saving grace was that I too bought the game for $10 at Best Buy when it was clearanced... but seriously. HIDEOUS.

The new cover is a picture of the original game as its cover. Look on eBay for examples.

To add about BB...there was a coupon for $5 off any DS game (now expired) that made the game $4.99 before tax. Even I picked up a copy at that price since I couldn't pass up a new game for $5.34 even if it had a hideous cover.

I got it for $5 too. For that price who cares if it has a picture of Roseanne on it.

I don't get to go to Best Buy very often unfortunately. The closest store is a 45 minute drive.

It's kind of funny that we hate the Greatest Hits cover so much, but in 10 years we're going to consider the original cover's artwork lame. I remember how many games' box art looked so awesome to me 10 years ago but now looks like crap.

It depends on the game. As long as the cover is true to the game I generally like it. I have games from the 80s with covers I still like. The covers I dislike are like the old Mega Man titles and other games that got rid of the anime style art of the Japanese covers and replaced it with a more realistic American style that did not match the artwork of the game at all. It's funny how things have reversed. Even a little over ten years ago game makers went out of their way to Americanize the covers of originally Japanese games but now anime style art is everywhere even with games of American origin.

:) Funny, we thought of the same series. The old Americanized covers for Mega Man were horrid. The Street Fighter game boxes weren't great either.

Somebody better do something with that.

And if you have any local stores that have a used one with the original cover in stock, ask them to swap it out. THe insides are identical anyways

Capcom was very guilty of having bad Americanized covers although their games with American based licenses like DuckTales had great covers. Another bad one from Hudson Soft this time is the original Bomberman. It looks nothing like the Bomberman character.
