Game case that holds manuals too?

I'm not sure if anyone will know where to find them, if they exist, but I'm looking for game disc holders that hold not just the game discs themselves, but the manuals also. Do such things exist? Any help is appreciated. ^_^

Define "game disc holder".

The free case thing I got from Sony has those kind of sleeves. The game disc goes on one side and the manual on the other. I'm sure the sleeves and DVD cases can be bought at places like Best Buy or maybe CompUSA.

I picked some PS2 game cases at Target on clearance for about $5 a pop, they hold 16 games each, but are pretty hard to close if you have 16 games & manuals in there (they zip shut, and get a bit overstuffed if full).

Sorry, I should have been more specific. What I mean are those Case Logic type cd or just game discs (in the gamecube type discs' case) that holds not only the discs but the manuals also. I'm look for all systems which includes Xbox, PS2, and the GC. Thanks. ^_^

No, no, not the hard cases. I'm talking about those CD cases that has those bubble holders, etc. Dunno what they're called exactly.

Thats what I was talking about. Case Logic makes them for DVD movies, but they should work for games.

From your vague description, it seems as if you are looking for cases like "darkside" and "mrlumpy" mentioned. These cases are available for both the PS2 and X-Box, but I haven't seen any specifically for the GameCube size dics, and they are available anywhere (Target, CC, BB, etc). They usually can hold 12 games plus manuals or more for about $10-$12.

If that's not what you are looking for then can you specify further? How many can it hold, just one or more? Does it have flip pages? Does it have pockets for memory cards, etc? Binder Type?

The more information the more helpful we can be.

Here's one for the X-Box:

They, or similar ones, are sold everywhere.

BestBuy, Target, KMart, Blockbuster, game stores, music stores, really, everywhere.

Many different manufacturers, sizes, etc

I've been using them for DVDs and Xbox games for years.

I would love to find one built for Gamecube games.

Hmm..that's odd. I guess they're not quite popular around my area because they don't sell them at my local Best Buy, CompUSA, Target, Blockbuster, etc. Ah well. Any place online that sells em?

Don't take this the wrong way, but you're probably just not looking in the right place. They are not in the game sections. Best Buy has them in a separate 'storage' section near the CDs. Other stores will be similar.

The cases are marked CD or DVD cases, nothing on them indicates games, but they of course work for games or anything else you want to put in them that fits.

Yeah, the thing is, I do go to the storage sections. They only have the CD only holders that hold like 200-300 cds. No inserts nor manuals. Ah well.
