Inquiry regarding variants
« on: October 23, 2018, 02:56:51 pm »
In my quest to obtain all Final Fantasy XII PS2 releases worldwide I see that there are two variants for the AU/NZ market.  Items numbers are below.  I'm assuming the -ANZ suffix is due to it being a revision of some kind?  Hard to find information on this specific revision. 

Anyway my question is do these qualify as a new entry?  The disc has the different item codes with the -ANZ added in case you were wondering.  I received and added the one on the bottom but need to know if I should be adding all of them as I get them.  My gut says yes since these are officially release variants.

Code: [Select]
SLES-54354: Original release (AU/NZ) [0]
SLES-54354/P: Platinum release (AU/NZ) [0]
SLES-54354-ANZ: (AU/NZ) [0]
SLES-54354/P-ANZ: Platinum release (AU/NZ) [1]

In my opinion these qualify as a new entry.

/P-ANZ is the New Zealand release, it should have the New Zealand OFLC rating on it.

Thanks for the replies guys.  I've only been able to capture images of the discs and not cases from ebay auctions for only a couple of variants in the past.  So the one I have has /P-ANZ on the disc but the AUS rating sticker on the case (image below) and has the blue M AUS rating on the case insert.  I've seen a few others with that variant suffix but with an AUS rating sticker or the blue M rating on the case insert.

*edit*
I created an item entry for this but am unsure how to label the title taking in to consideration the mystery of these variants.  I believe the ANZ variant was for both NZ and AUS but that only the rating stickers were different between these countries.  That's my opinion.

What is the number on the spine of the case you have?

Removed [AU] from title, not needed, as in [AU] category already.

Verbatim:

SLES
54354

-------------------------

Though this doesn't indicate that this is the platinum hits (/P) so the full item number is not there on the spine.  It seems to be this way for all variants of my PAL titles (platinum and standard), same with my JP/AS ultimate hits releases as well.  I can take a picture if you like?

Thanks.  Forgot to strip that out when I copy/pasted it from my collection list.  :)

You can amend the item title to (ANZ disc) because I can't think of any way else to do it. Then fix the item number and put into the description the disc's item number which is currently on the entry.

Sounds like a plan.  :)
