Call me crazy, but small details always catch my attention. Last week I saw Micro Machines CD-i on Ebay, but it was not the ordinary 'Special Edition'. (Something that still bothers me. I posted about it on the old forum like ages ago but still nobody knows why there's "Special edition" at the top of the front box art. I really hope, someday, sometime someone will show up knowing why.)
Anyway, the disc on ebay was a testing phase beta disc (version 1.02)dates 11/8/95. I don't think these discs justify a high price tag as they normally do on ebay, but the seller claims that it "features some gameplay differences from the finished version". I'm not going to test that for 80 GBP. Maybe you? Again, anyway, above you see a picture including the original jewelcase and boxart where it came in. And there was a change: Compare it to the retail version below:
That '2 player logo' has shifted a few inches to the corner!
