TOMI in local German supermarket

posted by tarasis on - last edited - Viewed by 353 users

I tweeted this to Telltale earlier but I was pleased to see TOMI in my local supermarket today http://twitpic.com/37o7tz

They seem to have only got it recently in and it's going for €40. While I briefly considered picking up a copy (I already have it direct from TTG) I decided to pass. I'd rather give my money directly to TTG :)

Puzzled that it has two ratings, I presume one is for the game (12) and the other (0) is for DVD content?

    Sorry to be extremely off-topic again, but this Ritter-Sport-related video is just hilarious:

    I wish game publishers carried adventure games here... Damn Spanish's piracy rates for discouraging game publishers and bothering honest customers...

  • Now for a completely made up fact:

    They had to create TV remotes because Americans used to change the channel with hand guns.

    I agree to that.

    Just to answer you this, they´re both for the game. The right one (12) is the PEGI rating, which is a europeanwide rating and the left one (0) is the german USK rating.
    The difference is that PEGI is just a recommendation, the USK is mandatory (I hope that´s the right word^^)

    Also, anyone knows a good online store where you can buy the TOMI Eurobox?

    Edit: Eurobox btw: http://www.adventure-treff.de/images/bild.php?bild=news/euro_box_tomi.jpg

  • So, I saw a Euro-Box version of TMI in a local market too and I decided to shell out another 40 bucks for a game I already own, just so I can provide you with images:
    (Sorry for the bad quality, but I just had a cellphone camera)

    That's me with my new TMI box

    Looks good next to the other TMI boxes, IMO
    Now, just need to find a place to put them all.
    The TMI DVD case is btw self-made, and provides the back of the original DVD case together with the Purcell artwork in the front. (The original DVD cover is obviously at a save place)

    Interesting thats actually a different box than the one I saw on in shop

    Note where the bottom logo's are on the bottom of the box. Also your box seems larger, more like a classic game box size (thinking the old Lucasarts style boxes). Also your TOMI logo doesn't look embossed like this one.

    PS I know I need to respond to this thread myself to some earlier messages. Keep putting off doing so. Sorry

    What I have is one of 3000 Eurobox versions of the German TMI, which is an oldschool paper box like old games had.
    The box on your photo is inside my box.

    lol cool that you get both versions with that.

    I used to have my old school LA boxes but they had to go when we moved house at one point. Shame as I miss the DOTT, S&M, FT and Tie Fighter covers.

  • Mine, too! All the game boxes were thrown away by my mother, when I moved out. :( (even my GBC and GBA collection)
