    Angry Wipeout 3 fake on eBay?

    Found this on eBay:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/PS1-154-WIPE...item2eca6d7bc7

    When looking at the picture one sees that the Playstation logo is missing in the upper left corner and the text "Playstation" has been removed. The printing on the disc looks really weird and kind of distorted. I'm fairly sure this is an illegal copy. Correct me if I'm wrong though.

    I have one of these, it is illegal. I forgot where I bought it from. Unless this was the disk art from Thailand, which is about a .001 % chance

    Yeah, Players is the "brand" a lot of bootlegs got shipped under in the late 90's.. I used to have a few import anime titles from them back before importing became easy.

    I'd say the Indiana Pacers logo is a dead giveaway.

    Ya, not to mention the disc looks incredibly fake. I have a copy of the real version, though I don't own a PS1 so I don't know why I still have it. Here's a pic for comparison though.
