We already can assign a title to a R, which is mandatory data for a new R entry. The "Collector's Edition" would be added there, not as a game title. Of course, as data modelling is fun, there's other examples where the "edition" is part of the game title. The "Special Editions" of Monkey Island 1 and 2 come to mind.Ultyzarus wrote:Maybe having two separate title fields could be used here. One for the actual title, one for other parts of the title that applies to a R, but not RG (ie. Greatest Hits, International, Collector's Edition, Ultimate Hits, Platinum, etc.)
What we still need to implement is a way to group together special recurring releases like "Collector's Editions", "GOTY-Editions", or series of budget releases.
Another perfect example for an RG split. I see that you removed the double assignment of one FF X release from the wiki, which makes more sense to me now. Otherwise, if we would have assigned a single R to both the RGs for the Japanese and the International version, it would have meant that this R contains both versions, which would have been strange.Ultyzarus wrote:In this specific case, "This edition of Final Fantasy X includes new Sphere Grids, new bosses such as the Dark Aeons, and with a bonus disc filled with special features. The International version is the only version of Final Fantasy X that was released in Europe and for that reason was not tagged with the "International Edition" tag. "
If it's an emulator R, it would be linked to both the RG for the new platform, and to the old platform's RG. This way, the user can see that the game is released on the new platform, but on the other hand it's also possible to see from the older platform's point of view that this version was re-released on a newer system.Ultyzarus wrote:I see, it does make sense that way. I figure there is a way to link the different RGs that are actually the same version of the game?MZ per X wrote:I think that the PS Vita release needs to be a separate R entry, because otherwise we won't be able to distinguish the release dates between the three platforms. That's because the release date isn't saved with the RG <---> R connection, but elsewhere (R <---> Region). If we'd do a single R for all three platforms, we'd have 2 release dates linked to it, but couldn't show the earlier date for PS3/PSP, and the latter date for PS Vita.Ultyzarus wrote:For the PSOne Classics (Digital PlayStation versions), here is how I'd make the R, with each RG it is linked too: http://wiki.oregami.org/pages/viewpage. ...

The older platform's RG would then be the link you mentioned.
