Thanks GPS  :D

 

Sure thing! Nintendo have made three different versions of the tear-strip, to date. (Tear strips including the company name on the strip, not including clear strips or recycle strips) It is only the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS that have games using all three versions of the Nintendo tear strips, which makes these extra special to collect for, in my opinion. Three Wii games lived through the entire period of switching between the three versions. (Mario Strikers Charged Football, The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess and Mario Party 8)

 

strip spaces.jpg

 

1. Original, wide space red tear-strip. - This is essentially the same tear strip colour and spacing that had been used since back in the early NES days! The Wii had around 2 years of game production with this original strip. (2006 to late 2007/early 2008). Only 3 Wii games were made which only came available with this version of the tear-strip, due to fairly short production runs. (Pangya! Golf with Style, Kororinpa and Wing Island)

 

2. Second version, close spaced red tear-strip. - This version was only around between late 2007/early 2008-2009. The recycle logo is added to this tear strip along with more Nintendo's crammed across the strip.

 

I'm not sure why Nintendo created this version for such a short period of time. (Also considering that the original wide space tear strip had potentially been around since 1985 or so. (21 years!)) I have a feeling it may be to do with the size of the game boxes decreasing, mainly with the DS boxes, which meant that more Nintendo's were needed in close proximity across the box (For consumer impact). I'm guessing some algorithms were used to work out overlaps and potential for getting undesirable half of words across the game etc. 

 

3. Third version, black/grey tear-strip - This has been around since 2009 and has remained the same up until present day. :) The Nintendo logos on this strip are smaller again so have more scope to be used on smaller cases in the future.

 

 

On a side note, Nintendo seems to be going back to the old red/white Nintendo colour scheme alongside with the announcement of the new Switch. Strangely enough on Nintendo.com they are showing the new white on red text logo but on Nintendo.co.uk the old grey logo is still in place.

Wow what an update Austin. High grades! Love the two different strip-Paper Marios, the Mario Party´s and the 90+ Endless Ocean, beautiful cover and great game with an epic soundtrack. The Launch titles are great too. Never knew these are launch titles all. Interesting. Im no Pokemon fan at all, but have to say, these are beautiful for any reason. Must be the high grades and the funny covers which let me think like this...lol. What a colorful update! ^-^

Sorry I'm late a bit with reply to this decent graded games. But I think, you will have to raise your grade level and start to hunting for 95 soon... :scratch: It would be interesting, I suppose. +1 from me too!  :good3:

Some of these games are very difficult to find in 85+ condition let alone nearly perfect grades! I always try to get the best condition where possible but i'm happy to have any gold grade to be honest :)

Hey Aus,

 

Just finally found the time to finish of reading your Wii collection thread :) Must say what a collection, Fantastic grades, looks beautiful!

 

Just Mario Kart to go! 1 day it will pop up I am sure. Do you plan to grade all of your Wii collection?

Thanks mate :D Glad that people are still enjoying this collection!

 

Mario Kart has so far eluded me, but i'm still looking :) I have the Players Choice version of the game so at least I have one version of Mario Kart. 

 

I have almost half of the collection graded now so more than likely I will aim to grade the rest of the collection. I have the majority of the hard to find games already graded so a lot of the others are pretty easy to find and are cheap. (Wii Music, Big Brain Academy, Trauma centre). It feels wrong to be grading games where the value of the game is many times outweighed by the cost of grading but a full graded set would look amazing :D
