Earlier this week I decided to buy a couple of games and one of them was a game that I played a lot of when I was a kid, Monsters Inc Scare Island. I love that game and I played it to death but I had the PS1 version.
I knew that the game was also released on the PlayStation 2 but what I didn’t know, was that there was a limited edition of Scare Island. Limited Editions have always been a thing for video games, even more so nowadays. Scare Island having a limited edition though?
This surprised and baffled me because Monsters Inc Scare Island is pretty much movie tie-in game. Movie tie-in games rarely have limited editions or collector editions so this is an odd case. I don’t understand how this limited edition came to be but I’m grateful that it’s real and also rather cool.
Also, I have to mention how much I spent on this and it was (drumroll), £2. Yeah, you read that right. I got this rather obscure limited edition for £2 which I think is an absolute steal.
Here is the Monsters Inc Scare Island Limited Edition. (Click on the images for an enlarged version.)

I think that this is a rather cool limited edition and for £2 it was a bargain. I’d love to know how this limited came to be and how much it was when it originally launched. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go on a nostalgia trip to Scare Island.
