I know that we are split but some people love the direction that Sony took the PS3 style with the Slim and others prefer the old style.  We now have that style going to Uncharted.  It always hit me as odd as how the game sites were presenting the box art for U2.  But then I go pick up my copy from the Best Buy and see this fucking ugly piece of shit.  I know that no one was thrilled sony just reused their font from Spider-Man for the PS3 but the box had some definition to it.  Did anyone manage to get it in the old style.  I look at it and the blu ray box itself doesnt have the PlaySation 3 name etched on the top of the box.  Which did you get?  is it possible to get the old one?

It doesn't look as impressive I admit. I'm much more interested in the contents though.

I don't really care, its what's inside the box that counts. Besides, I can't really see the box art if it's inside a shelf.

Does nothing satisfy you? 
Also, from your previous posts I got the feeling that you don't care much for Uncharted, why then (if that be the case) are you buying the game then?  
 
To answer your question, NO. All new print of PS3 games will have that kind of design. I for one like the new design. Simple and to the point.

I like the new box art for PS3 games but the subtitle "Only on PlayStation" should've been pushed into the top header.

@Mordukai: 
I just said that Nathan Drake is a bitch.  Thats it.  And that I fucking hate Killzone 2 and Rico.  While I think Rico is an asshole, i also hate the gameplay in Killzone 2.  But I loved the Multiplayer Beta for Uncharted 2.  Nathan Drake being a bitch doesnt have anything to do with how good the game plays.
 
I know its not one of those important things, but seeing as how people were reacting to the new PS3 slim style, I wanted to see what people thought about the new box art style considering it is an extension of the new slim style.  And in person, it makes it seem like a cheap box that is used for preorders or something.  I think its that black to gray gradient at the top.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Special Edition as a rather stylish steel case. Though I actually like the normal box art for Uncharted 2.

Yeah, I prefer the old style too. Luckily the EU are getting the spiderman font for U2, probably one of the last few games before the new style comes in...

As long as the box is the same shape as the old, I don't care.

Sony would like apologize about this fuck up with the box art.  It was only until now that Sony realized that gamers aren't interested in a machine that can process byte code for interactive software but a instead a slick looking boxart.
 
So here is our plans to improve on the boxart.  To save our costs, we'll stop making the games and quit inserting blu-ray discs into the box.  With the money we saved, we will be sure to sell you a significantly improved boxart which you can watch for hours on your shelves.

It doesn't look as impressive, but I really don't care. And for anybody who does, you've got to admit it is still better than that box art of the Wii.

I really did prefer the old-style of logo. It just looked kind of classy and high-end. Not that it really matters though. Still hate to see something go backwards.

No, I never said I would not buy it because of that.  I always said the game played well and I liked the multiplayer beta.  And I will repeat this for you one more time because you obviously cant take the time to read posts on this thread or other threads since I cleared this up earlier in the thread.

And this is what I was getting at.  What is the reason for the change? So will they be losing the rights to distribute the new Spidey films?
Also, I am getting at the style which refers to the border that says PS3 on it, which has changed to resemble the PS3 slim style.
And further more, i dont know why you guys who just reply "who gives a fuck" "i play the game" "i dont pay to look at the box" bother to do so at all.
We all know that.  I am asking for an opinion on the box, thats it, no need to get cynical or any more obvious.  Like i said, I just wanted to get everyone's opinions on the subject because as we all know, the box may tell us about the game, how the game is presented in other countries or we just want to see what the devs came up with.  Which is why GB will have articles about the box art of a game being released.  Hell, there was a whole discussion about it on the bombcast for MW2 and how the train sequence is not a spoiler because its on the art.   Yes we can all be high and mighty and say, "hey I only playt the game, fuck the box."  OK, but I am sure a lot of us would be pissed if we bought a game from gamestop without a box or cover and got one of those ugly generic yellow ones they use while still having to pay the same price if it came with the original box and manual.
As for the japanese cover art, man that looks ugly.

You're not going to be looking at the boxart as much as you're playing the game, are you? It isn't that bad, to be honest, I actually like it.

The death of Spider-Man font is nothing but a good thing as far as I'm concerned.  Oh, and:

1. Who really cares, its just the box art.  
2. I actually prefer the new box art. I think the Playstation 3 logo on the left side of the case looks out of place, I've never liked it, nor have I ever liked Blu-ray cases in general.  
3. Try living in Australia where they put massive rating logo's on the bottom of the cover art.

I just like playing the game, box art is irrelevant unless you want to show off your game collection to your uncaring friends and relatives.

The new box is being redesigned to be used as a console.  Pretty versatile if you ask me.
