This is a minor issue but it still bugs me. I've noticed that as my PS3 games (and BD movies to a lesser extent) age, the clear plastic over the case's artwork starts to warp into a ripple pattern. It's worst on Resistance seeing as it's my oldest game. I can see the same thing on some DVDs and PS2 games but it's much less pronounced. Maybe they use a thicker plastic.


Is this a common problem? I'm guessing it has something to do with humidity and/or temperature.

Come to think of it, my Warhawk case is like that. I don't have any other games that are that old to check though, and I haven't looked at my Blu-ray collection in months.

I don't have this problem but like you said it may be a humidity or temperature problem. Being that I live in S. Florida, my condo is climate controlled year round 76-78degrees.


What did happen to me once is that I tried to unwrap a new bluray in the dark while I was zooted and ended up ripping off the plastic sleeve for the artwork completely.

Interesting, thanks. I've had air conditioning problems the last couple of summers so it got pretty hot in the apartment for a while.

I did that once as well but it was the free copy of Talladega Nights that came with the PS3 so I wasn't too bummed.

My cases are somewhat worn, but only because I open and close them regularly.


The oldest case plastic looks all dirty now though.

Um. It's a zoot suit. I've never heard the term "zooted" before.

Wow, I never heard the term "zooted" before. Anyway, my cases seem to have the same problem, but I've never paid attention to prior to this thread. Rippled PS3 cases are around #45,475 on my list of problems.

I don't seem to have this problem with my cases. Are you guys keeping them stored away or in the open?

I don't have this problem either. I live in SoCal and the temp inside my house hits the mid-80s all the time. And... unlike Mr. Money Bucks up above I don't constantly run my AC to keep my house 76 degrees or below. =P

ONLY my Resistance case is like that. I actually open my games and put the disks in a dvd case so everything is at quick grabbing. My boxes stay mint on the shelf.

80 degrees +? LOL, you're the guy always complaining about the PS3 fan noise. Anyways, that is impossible to let that happen in Florida. The importance of climate control down here is two fold. The major concern here is humidity, it will do a number on your electronics, stimulate the growth of mold and warp your nice laminate flooring. In summary, it's not so much a luxury but a necessity.

I used to live in Coral Springs and I agree that setting the temperature above 80 in South Florida would be suicidal. Even in Illinois, it is too humid in the summer to leave the temperature above 80.

In the cold months, I leave the heat at 70 when I leave the house. In the hot months of California, I leave the A/C at 76 or 78 when I leave the house (can't remember).


My apartment has pretty good insulation/windows, so even when it hits those parameters it's not too hot or too cold inside.
