    Japanese vs. Western releases

    As far as I understood most carts are multi-language. So what is the reason to buy the western releases that are often more expensive? Is it solely just for collectors reasons or is there more than meets the eye?

    Smaller amount of inserts, stickers, and manuals printed.

    So it comes down to the rarity of the western releases? That's a good enough reason ofc but I thought that there may also be a technical reason.

    Nope, only a mental one.

    Definitely, Collector's reasons for AES. The cover/insert being primary. If you think about it, you could get the ACA adaptions on the modern consoles now for $7.99 a piece, so the scene is split between collectors and those who want to play the real thing.

    IZA TO! EN GARDE! DUDE!

    The english NGH releases are a nice reminder of how strong the west worshipped the Neo, the manuals and back covers contain tons of priceless Engrish and I just hope they don't poke my eye out ;).
