@Polan18 ... don't worry you are not alone I did the same. The site only shows 3 in the number count but makes mention of the Canadian Version in the description.

Couple quick examples...... Gears Club Unlimited has 2...... GameStop Exclusive and then non GameStop.

Atelier Lydie & Suelle he needs to update the US release date and add the NIS collector's edition

Rime has 3 version. Standard, GameStop Exclusive with cloth Map and Spain collector's edition

Just a couple quick one's I noticed

@Polan18 You might want to let your buddy know, if he doesn't already know, that there is an alternate cover for RBI Baseball 17.

@RueDaydreamer there is??? Do you have a link for the two as I wasn’t even aware, but now I must own both 😀

@MrCIB thank you!! I will definitely let him know. His aim is to make this the most complete list which I know many of us could benefit from.

@RueDaydreamer if they do and it’s not a homemade printed cover, I’ll buy it and can send money via PayPal to you. Now that I know it exists, I have to have it haha.

Thanks for some of the feedback on my site! I want to make 1 small thing clear, for me a variant means there is a different content inside the retail release. I will soon be adding information for all the cover variations to make the site even more complete.
Should anyone find any more examples to correct, do let me know! This site is meant to be the most complete source you will ever find.

Do what you please........... it's your site but that's not what a variant is nor has it been the last 20+ years I've been collecting.

So let me get this straight, all the different USK rating cover differences are valid variations for you?

Of course......... That's a region variant. Why do you think people collect North America, PAL, Japanese and whatever region they want. They are all variations. Now 99% of collectors will key in on a specific region for example North America (which includes US, Canada and Mexico). They decide at that point how deep they want to drill in as most people stick to the country they could buy at retail..... However some one who collected for the Wii for example ran into 3 games only released in Mexico ..... up to them to decide. Someone out of Canada in the Sega Master System days had different releases not brought to the states and also blue label variants.

Side example there is what 4 different version of Let's Sing 2018 right......... the one called Let's Sing 10 out of Spain if I recall. They all have different songs with country specific songs added. Now that'd different contents but you don't list it that way. Me personally I bought 1 UK Let's Sing 2018 and Let's Sing 10 because the name is different.

All I am saying is if you are going to claim to be the most complete site you have to go that far or alter it so it's clear to you intended user.

Let me ask do you consider all the NIS America releases that have collector's editions variants? I mean the actual game/case is the same right? So if you don't get the collector's box they came in would you know the difference?

Retro City Rampage made sure the cover was different is this a variant to you?

See how tricky this can get

I see your point, however for me, these fall under 1 title, which is why I list them inside the information/game page. I will be adding a new listing to mention actual cover variations soon.

PS Let's sing actually had all this info already in the details. As I do not own them yet, I can not guarantee that it is really different songs or just disguised as downloads

(many thanks for the feedback, very appreciated)

You are putting in a lot of hard work that will be much appreciated by everyone that finds the site. The more resources the better and we have to help each other get the information all in one place. Great job!

P.S. Google the Let's Sing 2018 playlist and you will see a group of songs are the same. Then they add 5-7 from singers in their respective countries.

for me, I go for different physical content to make it a different one, Retro city is actually the best example we can take, 2 variants due to different contents, one has the cart, the other that silly 3D glasses, ...
Input from any and all Fellow collectors, like everyone here on this thread, are exactly what is needed to make my site more and more complete, hence also all my questions

(About the NIS question, I have been thinking about this in the past, to list them as alternative editions or so, same for Fire Emblem Warriors, EU got a different box from US, ....)

Here's What I would do if I were you.

List the games as you have but add filters (if you can) to show Games Only Released in North America, Europe, Japan, etc. that way its easy for someone to decide what they want to see. Maybe later add a language filter which would pick up games that have English, Japanese, etc. on the cart. (like Neo Geo collector's don't have a problem buying Japanese games because they can play in English)

I consider the NIS, Xeno, Fire Emblem games as one game therefore you only need 1 to have a complete collection but similar to how you did Zelda with 6 different editions you can list each one that was released.

What will make you site the #1 resource is if you can make it interactive with the filters. So if someone wants to see all the North American Collector's Editions they could or All games with English on the Cart or all Games released in 2017......
