? about PS2 "Star Ocean" packaging

I just found two different packaging for Star Ocean: Till the End of Time - the original boxed version and the Greatest Hits version. Which one should I pick up?

Also, I saw that the GH version has a fairly good sized booklet shrinkwrapped to the back of the case. What is this booklet? Is it also included in the original boxed version or is it exclusive to the GH version?

If it's anything like Dragon Quest VIII, the cardboard sleeve is just there to hold the manual since it's too thick to fit in the case with the double-DVD tray. That's probably why it's just shrink-wrapped to the back on the GH version. Thankfully in the case of DQ8, the second disc is just a demo of some bad fashion show so I ripped it out and the manual fits nicely with the single disc game.

Wow that sucks, Pixy! I got some cool Final Fantasy XII demo with my copy of DQ8.

You mean the original boxed version of the Star Ocean does come with the same booklet as the one that is shrinkwrapped to the back of the GH version of the same title?

Unless some improvements were made to the Greatest Hits version, I would recommend going with the Non-Greatest Hits version, much easier to sell between the two versions.

My version is the boxed one, and it came with the manual inside the case. The box didn't have anything in it. I bought mine used, but I have been assured that the manual is the only thing included.
