PlayStation 1 Formula 1 Team JORDAN

Hi , it's been a while without a Blog post and we will talk about a very rare system !

 

We just found recently an auction on ebay and the seller was the Product Manager of the F1 series !

The system was released in 1997 for the game Formula 97' and only 20 made in the world which make this console one of the rarest of the Playstation 1 systems !

 

Here is a quote of the description of the auction still on going  !

 

"'I was the Product Manager/Product Development Manager for all the F1 games from 'Formula 1' that went out with the launch of PS1 through to the subsequent games from Electronic Arts. I worked for Psygnosis Sony and EA. I dealt with the FOA and all the teams to market the game worldwide with my managers in the different territories. I commissioned the Jordan branded PlayStations and there were different designs. The buzzin hornets were part of their branding. It came at a time when tobacco branding was limited at some races so buzzin hedges was used.'

 

I was the Product Manager for the PlayStation game F1 97 and commissioned a small batch of limited edition PlayStation 1 Jordan GP yellow consoles. We were working with the team at the time to promote the launch. I was allowed to keep one and I've had this stored away for over 20 years. It's never been used. I don't have any of the other items such as lead controllers etc as these were used at the time on another plain console."

 

The console is brand new and yellow colored with " Jordan Grand Prix " written on it !

 

here is the link of the auction :

Hunting the Hyundai Comboy 64 in Korea!

So here is the back story: The N64 Hyundai Comboy was only released in South-Korea and is one of the most exotic N64 consoles out there. At the time of the N64’s release Nintendo had no distributing rights in Korea. So they used the company “Hyundai” to make a kind of shadow release of the console and in the process had to give it a different name.

 

However, the import ban was lifted really shortly after the release and all further sold N64’s in Korea were the normal Japanese version with a selection of Korean language games. This insanely short market appearance makes this console not only very exotic but also incredibly rare.

The Xbox One: Rise of Tomb Raider Edition

Rise of The Tomb Raider launched November 10th  2015 and  the Square Enix Online Store had a sweepstakes to win a one of a kind custom crafted Xbox One console!

How to have entered? If you've already ordered our Rise of the Tomb Raider Collector's Edition from the official Square Enix Online Store, then you'll be automatically entered!

There where some complains during this sweepstakes, not that you only had a chance to win it by buying the Collector's Edition, but the big reason was that you had to purchase an Xbox One Game.. to win an Xbox One .. this means that there was a very high chance that the winner of this sweepstakes had an Xbox One system already!

 

More pictures of the system are below
