There are usually a lot of little differences between versions, like name changes, cover art, etc. But I want to focus on the big stuff, mainly gameplay changes like difficulties, cut content, censorship, voice options, and I guess if gameplay related, exclusive DLC/unlockables.
I don't care where you get the info, just be sure it's accurate. Feel free to post videos of any of these changes in action. You do not need to know the difference between ALL possible versions. If you only know EU and US, but not JP, that's fine.
One thing about language options, the EU versions usually have a ton of languages, but not Japanese. I don't care whether you add the EU languages or not, but Japanese is the one everyone goes on about and is usually missing, so just saying whether it's there or not is fine.
I'm not to concerned with the way you lay out the info at this point.
You can request info. In the past I've found a lot of info isn't available online, so you might have to find someone who's played the games. There's not many of us on here, but the option is there.
I'm not sure about the versions available in Asia. These days the Asian designated versions have English options, though this doesn't seem to be the case for older games like on PS2 where Asia just got the standard JP version. I have versions of Death by Degrees and Ico for the Chinese market (or more likely Taiwan, will have to check the cases), but I've forgotten if they have any exclusive options, so just go for the usual EU, US and JP versions unless you have info on any others.
I'll start with one I know very well and to serve as an example.
Castlevania: Lament of Innocence (PS2)
*Japanese voice available.
*Features an item duplication cheat. It can only be done in two places.
*No Japanese voice.
*No item duplication cheat.
I have the JP version, but haven't played it enough to be able to compare. Once I have, I'll update this post.
Almost forgot, you can also add PSN or remastered versions, though remakes should be their own entries. Castlevania was released on the PS3 store but I forgot which region. Will update when I confirm.
What do you guys think?
