New PS3 Game Box Design!
Does this mean the boxes will no longer have the see-through plastic on top of it? That thing really annoys me, it feels really pointless. Though I cant say I like the new style, though its more like the original PS/PS2 style it feels very imposing over the boxart.
Isnt the most important point that it looks distinctly diffrent from the current PS3 game boxes and it might through off less savvy consumers?

" @LiquidPrince said:Isnt that already a problem if you buy a platinum release of a game since it makes it almost entierly a grey colour which stands out quite a bit?" ...they better not change the spines. "That's the only thing I care about. If it's a little different, I won't mind, but if it's drastically different and clashes with the old spines then I'm not going to be happy. "
Article on Kotaku says that the spines will be different.
I'm not a happy camper, Sony...
Oh, and for those of us interested in picking apart box art minutiae, the back of the PS3 game case is also available for ogling at the blog. Even the spine!! It's branding heaven.
Personally, I hated the PS3 boxes because they were out of line with -everything- else, if you want to really get in to bitching about being 'uniform', and I always disliked the Spiderman font. I like that the PS3 is starting to line up with its' predecessors and peers when it comes to visual aeshteiblahblahblahblah.
Seriously, they're boxes, guys. Is this really that big a deal? Is your life going to change dramatically?
" ooohhhhh nooooooooo the box art doesnt look good, im not gonna buy it now! shut upppp :) "I could care less about the Ratchet and Clank box art, and the conversation in this thread isn't about that. It's about how it'll fuck up the neat, clean, organized look of my game spines on my gaming rack.
" ooohhhhh nooooooooo the box art doesnt look good, im not gonna buy it now! shut upppp :) "Did you even read what I said...? I never said anything about teh game or about purchasing it, merely that I hat the box template change...
" @choffy21 said:Fuck that sucks..." Spine shot shown here:Hate it. The old boxes spines' were better too with just the "3". "
Took some serious digging to find it, but here it is. Isn't too bad, but still... "
I like the second box design with the "Playstation Network" and sometimes the "Only on Playstation" wording on the same level below the plastic on the case itself.
This just looks bland to me.
Oh, and just for you font lovers out there, the "Spider-Man" font is called Homoarakhn - now all it's good for is annoying people with label makers :(
