Cool find! Looks like an Asian release of FFVII to me;

 

Official Title : Final Fantasy VII Asia [ファイナルファンタジー VII アジア] Platform : Playstation [プレイステーション] Date Released : January 31, 1997 Serial Numbers : SCPS-45007, SCPS-45008, SCPS-45009 Region : NTSC-J Language : Japanese

 

Looks so strange with the information "flap" written in English but the rest of the game packaging looks like the Japanese version :D

As for sonic = some megadrive games were released in ASIAN PAL format. This is well known. I have a couple of them i believe.

PSX DataCenter is pretty handy. The FFVII S/N is listed on the NTSC-J part of the site. Not much info on it though......

That's because it's updated by people like you and me who don't have knowledge about every game on the planet. 

There is no such 100% complete database anywhere. You need to look for specific sites and specific databases for each console, like ROM sets and such.

That's why I asked if their was a database solely for Asian games...

For PS1, this list is not too bad.

 

Was that FFVII listed on eBay sold? I sold one a few years ago for ~70USD, but the seal had a couple of nasty holes. I don't see how it's that valuable really. I also have an Asian FFVI, but again it has nasty holes in the seal.

You will not find any complete database.

 

Last time I tried to create the list of all PAL variants of all Crash Bandicoot games from Naughty Dog and I was shocked how many editions were released for many markets. They all have the same discs inside the boxes but different bar-codes. I've found near 20 different editions of the Crash Bandicoot: Warped PAL!

 

Asian games are rare... I see them from time to time but nothing interesting for me. They all are SCPS-45XXX. I have Asian mint copy of Tomb Raider II on eBay right now.

This is a bit side-tracking, but perhaps relevant still.

I don't collect for Asian PSX games, but I have collected and seen Asian games for Saturn and Megadrive. I can only presume it still would apply for PSX collecting. Asian versions,there are 3 main territories - Japan, China and Korea. Perhaps there is a 4th region eg. Asian Countries non-specific.

Different languages need to apply for the manuals/boxes so you would think there would be at least 3 different Asian versions going around for any Asian game titles.

Pal collecting is a totally different challenge, because there are likely to be a lot of variations for each country from within Europe, as well as the other bottom end continent - Australia (and New Zealand)!

If you're a hardcore variant collector, then you would seriously have a big headache sorting through all known variants, especially from eras in the 80s-90s, as I would imagine some would be so rare, only the people from Asia themselves would know of their existence!

I can now say only about first three Crash Bandicoot games and Crash Team Racing. I just checked my folders and I can say that it will be close to 100 variants only for these four games! I didn't check Crash Bash yet. The first games are the hardest games to find in still sealed condition but I know at least three originally sealed copies with 100% legit seals. :)

 

I mean PAL variants, of course.
