Wanted: Final Fantasy VIII (8) PS1 game

Looking for "Final Fantasy VIII" (aka "Final Fantasy 8") for the Playstation 1 (PS1)

I'm looking for a copy with all 4 discs, the original case and the instructions ideally, but I could live without the instructions :)

Cheers,
James.

Best to have a look out around the odd car boot sale, I managed to pick up this (although minus the instructions and disc 2!!) this morning for 25p!!!
Shame about the missing disc, but it is OK, as I have a FF8 with a non functioning Disc 1, so this will kind of get that going, lol.

Is there no way you can test the 2 discs 1's and see which is working?

If you can establish which is the fully working copy you could then perhaps sell the incomplete one on eBay or sell the working disc 2 (of the incomplete copy) & instructions to Mike and then sell the working discs 3 & 4 on eBay individually?

I haven't really got any need for the extras on top of an already complete one, that's all..

Cheers,
James.

Gutted, I faier a little better, got Typing of the dead and a set of marracas for the dreamcast for £15 and a copy of dragon warriors on the gameboy for a pound!!
Aminterested in the FF8 faulty if it is available, that way it would make the one that works cheaper for the OP.

Just an update:

Bagged myself a copy of Final Fantasy VIII on eBay for £9 which i'm pleased with although it doesn't come with instructions and is the Platinum version. Fine for a run through but not quite what i wanted for my collection!

So masterruckus, if the complete copy of FF VIII you have is the 'black' version with picture discs (not the platinum version with plain silver discs) then i'd still be interested in buying it :)
If it's the platinum one then i'd be interested in just buying the instructions to complete my eBay-bought copy lol :-D

Right i have had a look at them they are the original black picture disc versions. the better one with all four working discs i can do for £12 delivered.

MikeBeaver do you want the whole box sent to you or just the disc 2 and instructions because that will be less postage! Its £2 to send that box out first class!! Let me know
#13
Cool, I'll buy the complete working copy for asking price if that's ok? :)
Is it in good condition, etc?

I've actually got the 'black' version, NTSC/US (no boarders and plays at the right speed). Would want £30 for it though because it is part of my collection and I don't really want to see it go. Also it's back at home with my parents in suffolk so I wouldnt actually be able to get it for a week...

Picked it up this morning and am happy :)
Seems like the postman was a bit rough with it as a few of the 'teeth' which hold the disc in the case are missing but not to worry, the game is brill! Many thanks!

No worries, I'd actually rather hold onto it anyway, great game! :p
#29
baconsandwich: you shouldnt be selling original NTSC releases, it isnt allowed, lol :p
I just need an original FF 9 to get my US collection back on track, at the moment I have a GH sealed version but may have to try get the picture discs :)
