As far as I know all UK games have clear boxes yes

Yes, it normally US imports that are in black cases. You'll also find that these cases are slightly thinner than the UK ones.

Dunno, it might cause a problem in places like GAME, as the barcode on the back will be different to a UK release.

It depends on who you are selling them to.

Some shops won't take them.

They have a lower resale value than UK games, you have to make it clear that they work just as UK games.

right only have two in black cases, one is deffo a uk version as the barcode on the back is same as uk one, just need to find someone with how old is your brain to check barcode on that one

Barcode on Dr Kawashima's Brain Training. How old is your brain is - 4549673712, incase anyone has it that could check for me please

Thinking back Sassie, I'm sure a couple of years ago I bought a copy of Brain Training for my brother from Powerplaydirect, and that came in a black case (in fact, the sleeve was different to the UK version - it was yellow instead of blue).

Has your copy got an age rating on the front? And if so, what does the box look like that it's in?

Yeah midlands is right...do you have a Pic of it? Might be able to tell where its from as DS is universal I believe and plays games from any country

Age rating isn't on a different side or a different shape is it?

They should be all clear boxes if they arnt it means they are imports - usa use smaller boxes

Although they are thinner so look stupid

It's a UK one. As long as it got the PEGI (??) rating on the front, you'd be fine trading it in / selling it.

Sound like its fine then, Does it have the PEGI rating?
If so sounds like a UK release despite the case

Might be a universal Euro release, sipped all around europe looking the same

And this is theversion Powerplaydirect sent me

the game cartridge itself will tell you where its from, the label has writing on the bottom EUR for europe, USA for america etc :thumbsup:

Exactly the same, and same barcode:thumbsup:

Some of the UK games have shipped in black cases..........they apparently also plan to make the slimmer black boxes the norm worldwide.
