Elder Scrolls V, The: Skyrim [UK] variants
« on: September 16, 2021, 06:59:12 am »
Hey guys,

I have two UK copies of Skyrim (one arrived broken, so I had to re-order) and noticed that they are different. One has the cover we have in the database with the reviews box and one without, probably the earlier release of the two. Another change to the newer one is that they added more awards on the back cover and most notably the disc says BLES-01329#. I'm guessing the # indicates a later version of the game?

Anyway, I was wondering if I should add the older version to the database too and add the full scans (covers and disc) to both. If so, what names should I give both entries?

If you can, def add the variants!

I have a slew of variants of games not listed here, but the process to add games is so stringent (I got a ton of rejections with no explanation as to why), I haven't tried in years.

I would def love to see more variants here!

There is a problem with the existing entries in the DB. First, the original entry is a franken-entry:
https://vgcollect.com/item/20147

I will research these releases and attempt to correct this entry if possible, as well as add missing variations of the base game release. Once that is done, then if the items you have do not have entries, then you can make them. I will post into this thread after I do the work.

Origin for https://vgcollect.com/item/20147 cannot be determined at this point. It appears to only be English EU copy (it has the Not for Supply in UK text). Added back item number and corrected barcode.

For UK Releases of base game not counting Editions or re-issues, there are 4 versions found.
Original UK release:
