Would request an account but if not, thats fine. Have some information to share on a release that hasn't seen much activity.


Midway Arcade Treasures for Gamecube was released in North America on December 17th 2003. Midway Arcade Treasures 2 was released under the same platform/region on Oct 12th 2004. The point here is that MAT was re-released under Midway Arcade Treasures 1 at some point to coincide with it being apart of a numbered series and with it a redesign of the artwork and disc relabeling. The UPC and Gamecube ID didn't change between the two (031719191512 & DOL P GAKE) but the main artwork did (original https://www.mobygames.com/images/covers … -cover.jpg / https://www.mobygames.com/images/covers … -cover.jpg ; re-release https://gamefaqs1.cbsistatic.com/box/2/ … _front.jpg / https://gamefaqs1.cbsistatic.com/box/2/ … back.jpg). The original disc was labeled DL-DOL-GAKE-USA on the front and IFPI LL06  DOL-GAKE-0-00 USA on the reverse holographic inner disc ring. I don't have access to the re-release but the disc label/front is different (https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/HZoAAOSw … -l1600.jpg) reading DL-DOL-GAKE-USA-01. I don't know if the mastering was changed or if there are any differences in the files or disc data but perhaps someone else has the ability to check.

I wanted to at least try and offer this in an effort to figure out when it was re-released since it is a variant and did not come out at the same time. I know this is about disc preservation first so maybe more information will surface as a result.

Honestly, there's little to do here if you're not going to dump anything.


That's fine - I don't need an account, but I did want to offer this information up for a variant so at least someone can pursue dumping it for further verification. Thanks.
