Yep this is true my friend. But it is the most minimalistic think I can do with this area of the car. In original photo that part was standing out even more with that all Le mans 24h logos etc. :O

Hnng. So many gorgeous, gorgeous covers on this page. I want to buy some of these games just so I have a reason to print the covers out. I'm particularly in love with przemekszulim's Ratchet cover and RedSwirl's Dishonored cover.

Thank you so much, I appreciate that :) And I'm in love too in Dishonored cover by RedSwirl. Great job! If I buy this game, printing your cover will be a first thing to do after unboxing the game ;)

Anyone have a boxart for Sleeping Dogs on the PS3? Custom or original, doesn't matter that much to me. I bought it from Wal-mart recently and the idiots felt it was necessary to print their huge blue "EXCLUSIVE DLC" logo straight onto the cover.

Has anyone checked out this site?

www.thecoverproject.net

Not the "clean" style of covers mostly found in this thread, but there are a lot of nice covers for older N64 and SNES genre games. I've been working on a project to categorize all my old SNES and N64 games in clear cases with these covers. It's pretty sweet looking.

Do you guys have any links to high quality scans of artwork specifically of Nintendo games? Or just to other sites that host high quality scans? Google seems to not give me much that I'm looking for, and I hate scouring Deviantart.

Those retro covers are awesome!!

But I wonder how and where do you use them? Are there cases that fit NES/SNES games?
It would be nice to do some papercraft though....

These are the universal cases that fit SNES, N64, and Genesis cartridges.

So i have never printed off covers and don't own a printer.

How would i get these printed at a lets say.. Staples. Would i just bring them in on a flash drive and tell them i want this stuff printed on high gloss paper? i know absolutely nothing about how to get this stuff printed in stores since i have never done it before

If you're in Canada, Staples charges a ripping fee of 1 dollar for retrieving files off of your USB so you'll want to create a copy and print account obline and submit the art that way to avoid it, and pay only the cost of priming/paper.

Choose 80 lb glossy paper, text and not cover ad you'll be good to go. Try to pick a bigger and newer staples be as chances are they'd have better printers.

I went to Staples, and all my covers came out WAY too dark. Then when I tried to get them to fix them they said that they had to destory the images because they were copyrighted.

It was a big challenge to find some good photo/graphic matching the game unique style. The car on the cover is BMW M3 GT2 and it is a successor of well known BMW M3 GTR which was on the official Most Wanted cover. These two cars have been made for the same purpose and both have V8 engines.

I want to add some elements from the old Most Wanted. Also I want to show that this is 19th title in Need for Speed series. Another one from Criterion studio.

Feel free to comment!


Looks amazing. Mind doing a 360 version? Or just uploading the raw art assets?

Sounds like a crappy Staples. The first one I went to printed them out way too dark too but the one I'm going to now prints them out beautifully. I think a newer Staples will tend to have better printers, but that's just a guess.

Nah the resolution of the images as-is will be too small to print out nice quality posters. If you're looking for art sufficiently big enough to print posters, you might want to head over to the hi-res art thread, if you haven't already. Most of those should be good enough to get some decent quality prints:

For everyone that snagged a White PSVita bundle recently, if you can get a hold of an empty case, then here is the cover art for Assassin's Creed III Liberation. I had a really hard time finding quality assets to put this together and its not 100% the same, but most people wouldn't even notice. (Click image to download)

Hey guys, without any scaling, what would the size of a PS3 game front cover be. I have one that is 421x500 and I need it a little bit bigger so its the same size. Also the fact that its lower res doesnt affect me as I only want a small part of the cover that I want to print and paste on.

That's literally just production art with the title slapped across it. A big part of this thread is showing just how incompetent publishers are with box arts, even when it comes to utilizing their own assets.
