This would definitely hit some violation with that PS logo blending in with the gun!

Man...if you could make this for the 360...I'd kiss you right on the mouth.

Hmmm...or...maybe it would be more effective to tell you I WON'T kiss you right on the mouth if you make a 360 version.

Gorgeous work.

Shouldn't be too hard since the artwork is already there. People should make sure they include both versions for GAF.

I'd do it myself but...I'm a complete idiot when it comes to doing stuff like this. I've been on a complete tear with my colour printer this weekend. :D

My wife doesn't get it.

Which tells me printing these alt covers are definitely the way to go. :)

Can't wait until we get a high res enough version of the Silent Hill HD collection; it's begging to be done without the game covers on the front.

Oh yeah that pinkish Kirby's Epic Yarn boxart is much better.

@brandonh83 - Agreed, the Silent Hill collection boxart looks really nice actually but the boxarts in the corner kind of kill it.

Here ya go:





I'm glad you asked, since fitting it to the 360 template made me see some changes worth making to the PS3 version before I print it out.

I hate sports games but I would consider buying that one just for that cover. I do like sports and I used to collect baseball cards, just not a big fan of sports videogames. Fantastic cover, inspired.

I use Google image search. I usually just put in "game name" + concept art, and set it to only show large images. Sometimes you have to dig a bit though. I also look at the CoverGalaxy forums for the spine logo if they have it.

edit: The "Larger than..." option also works, and is probably better sometimes.

You mean like a PS3 template without anything on it except the spine logo? You can use the PS3 combo template in the OP. Just take out all the layers except the spine, and any one of the background layers.

Yeah, but with that blue color in the background. I suppose I could change the color of the blue layer in the .PSD, though...

How do you get the white icons to look like that on your covers?

Aaaand here are some PS3 requests in case anyone gets bored. (Minimal style, please)

- CoD 4: Modern Warfare
- CoD: World at War
- CoD: Modern Warfare 2
- Dead Rising 2
- The two GTA IVs
- Resident Evil 5
- Tekken 6

I did two minimal GTA4 but only did PS3; I could be persuaded to go back and port them to 360 cases if you liked either of them... unless you're looking for the Stories from Liberty City... I didn't do those. Check the 2nd post.

All done by hand, tracing everything... there has to be an easier way, lol.

If anyone wants the SVG's of any of the assets (logos, icons, etc) lemme know. I made them all in Inkscape, so specify a format if you want any.

Good job with these, fit the style and look great.

You mean the logos? Just lock the transparent pixels (should be the first thing to click next to the "Lock:" part in the layers window), and paint over it in white. Sometimes you have to erase some stuff depending on the logo so that it doesn't look like a white blob.

Wow awesome idea ^! IMO keep the retro look but get rectangular shot boxes instead of tube tv ones. It'll be modern but retro at the same time! GOGOGO U SOB! Also look for some abstract space backgrounds and paste them on the background area :P
