IGN hosts perfect quality boxes, you just have to know how to get them

This is a minor trick I recently learned to grab high-res boxes with no artifacts:

Take SSBM:

The url you'd see on the game's page is this:

http://media.ign.com/games/image/ob...-Smash-Bros-Melee_Cube_US_ESRBboxart_160h.jpg

If you remove the "boxart_160h", you get the following:

http://media.ign.com/games/image/object/016/016387/Super-Smash-Bros-Melee_Cube_US_ESRB.jpg

Which give you the above HQ box.

A recent example of Project X Zone:

The url on the page:

http://assets2.ignimgs.com/2013/06/19/pxzboxfront1jpg-50eda9_160h.jpg

Now remove the "_160h", you get this:

http://assets2.ignimgs.com/2013/06/19/pxzboxfront1jpg-50eda9.jpg

Which again gives you the above box.

Not all will lead you to jumbo boxes, I tried it with Luigi's Mansion GC and only got a tiny one...

So in a surprise turn of events, IGN's now home to very HQ boxes that put Amazon and others to shame, try it if you're looking for a great box!

In case anyone wants to know the Amazon trick, same thing really.

Click the box until you have it bigger, right click, copy the URL...

Code:
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/81hlSLQEeoL._SL1500_.jpg
And remove _SL1500_.
