Cigars, Zelda Bling & More

Cigars, Zelda Bling & More

It surprises me sometimes, even in the 90′s, that Nintendo would put their logo on something as odd as a Cigar cutter.  Obviously, they were promoting Conker’s Bad Fur Day, a game that was definitely not made with kids in mind, but with all the anti-tobacco initiatives and accusations that the companies were targeting children, […]

The Original Duck Hunt

Guess what? The NES version of Duck Hunt you’ve known your whole life was actually a remake. The first and original Duck Hunt game was released by Nintendo in 1977 and consisted of a projector device that flashed orange ducks on your wall. It also came with a light gun, which worked the same way […]

GEARS OF WAR 3 Press Kit Limited Collectors Edition Xbox 360 PressKit GOW3

Press Kits

In my mind, with the release of the Playstation 1 came the birth of the press kit. There isn’t a clear definition of what a press kit is, but most collectors agree that it should at least contain a (promo) copy of the game. These kits are sent to journalists and reviewers to present their […]

Rare Playstation 1 Collector’s Editions

Dr. Retro’s (from www.dr-retro.com) first post here on GameSniped and what else to start with than some rare Playstation 1 games! Sony’s first home console was the first system that got a fair share of limited and collector’s editions. Previous consoles have their odd (and usually very rare) limited editions. But with the PS1 publishers […]

PlayStation Elemental Gearbolt Assassin’s Case Gold Card

Surprised I missed this until now. I’m going to quote directly from Game Rave (the go to PS1 Source) on this one: Working Designs created this extremely limited edition set as both an award and promotional item during the 1998 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). When you are brought face-to-face with an Assassin Case for the […]

Thrill Kill PS1 E3 1998 Promo Hat

Thrill Kill PS1 E3 1998 Promo Hat

Thrill Kill is hands down my favorite unreleased game of all time. It is a four player PS1 fighting game, full of violence and sexual content. BDSM, fetishes, limb dismemberment, and violent special moves like “Bitch Slap” and “Swallow This”. Good tines. A few weeks before shipping, the game was cancelled by EA because they […]
