Does Duel Masters really count as an RPG? I think it should at least be Borderline. Useful post regardless. Thank you.

You are probably right. Duel Masters is a borderline case. Turn-based and other RPG elements, but lacking in a true leveling-up-system we usually expect from a RPG. Lacking a commonly agreed definition of a RPG, I kept it in the main list because I wanted to keep the recommendation character of the list. By no means are these papal lists, everyone is free to add or remove games based on their individual view what a RPG is and is not.

I have only one goal when it comes to 'complete' collections, and that is from the PS1 on a complete collection of RPGs for the dominant RPG-console, which are all the Playstations until today (PS4 will be THE RPG-console as well). For the other consoles I have the exclusives titles. I started this list more than a decade ago just because I wanted t make sure that I don't miss a RPG.

I got for the PS2 all the games (with variants and limited editions) ten years ago already, and didn't pay a lot for them at all. I always wait until games drop significantly in price.

For the PS3 I'm in the process to get all the RPG-variants and limited editions, but it's tough because there are many more
limited editions than on the PS2. (I'm a cheapskate.)

For the PS4 I gave completely up to collect special editions. The reasons: 1. Way too many, 2. too expensive and overpriced, 3. ebay scalping. The combination of all three reasons makes collecting an umpleasant experience. I just refuse to pay 200 bucks for a Ni No Kuni II with its content. Another example of a way overpriced LE. In the PS2 era i could wait a long time until a LE dropped in price and Toys R US or Circuit City or Best Buy sold it for twenty or ten dollars, but those times are over. The LE of Tales of Berseria is a good example. Sold out and immediately goes the way of ebay scalping with little prospect to come down in price.

Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne. Soundtrack CD edition and standard edition (SLUS 20911), both in regular game cases. The edition without the CD might be a second printing. The front covers and spines of the two versions are identical. The versions have different back covers. The edition with the CD has "Includes Limited Edition Soundtrack CD!" on the back cover.

You are correct that the edition without the CD is a second printing.

- Original version had a Soundtrack CD.
- Original version's disc case was obviously designed with one of those extra disc carrying pieces you can clip into the case, for the soundtrack.
- Reprint has Black&White manual with color cover.
- The backside of the cover art has a little bit which says "INCLUDES SOUNDTRACK CD" in the original. Not there in the reprint.

I believe the reprint was done by https://www.videogamesplus.ca who also did the Infinite Space reprint.

Impressive are the number of exclusive titles as well. 80% of the RPGs listed are exclusive to the PS2. If you didn't have a PS2 as a RPGamer you truly missed out.

I had some doubts about the PS3 as the dominant console for RPGs during the first years of the PS3/Xbox360 times. Microsoft made an impressive effort to get a foothold in the Japanese market with exclusive RPGs like Tales of Vesperia, Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Infinite Undiscovery, The Last Remnant and Magna Carta 2. As sales numbers for the console didn't improve, they gave up this effort very fast.

Thanks so much, great input is always very much appreciated!

You are correct about the characteristics and differences of the two versions. I should have mentioned additionally the difference of the manuals, I will change the entry in the variants-section accordingly.

Back then when I did the lists some people maintained (or weren't sure) that the game without the soundtrack CD wasnt' a second printing but was sold this way as a variant from the getgo. I couldn't find out if that was the case or not.

If you are sure that the game without the CD was indeed a second printing I will change the text accordingly.

The first Summoner game was also never released on the Gamecube. It was, however, ported to the PC.

The additional making-of-DVD was mentioned in the 'Deluxe Packages'-section for Final fantasy XII limited edition, but it should be also noted in the 'Variants'- section. You are absolutely right. I'll correct it. Thanks so much, to make the lists more accurate is very important. Your help is much appreciated.

P.S.: Done

Indeed, that is a big mistake which really bothers me. I was so careful checking the data, but still a mistake like this happened. I made the lists more than ten years ago, I don't know what happened. The devil must have whispered in my ear! Smiley

Thank you so much! I'll remove the title from the 'Multiple Platforms'-section.

P.S.: Done
