I bought this Playstation breifcase 2 years ago. The only information I had when I was buying was that the seller got from Sony:

Hi,

Thanks for your e-mail about PlayStation One (PS one).

I can see from your e-mail that you own a PS one, which is in a case. I can advise that this item was not produced in the UK.

From the branding at the top of the case, the competition telephone number and instructions it seems to be for use in the Belgium/Luxembourg/Netherlands area, possibly for sales.

The console also appears to be a first generation PlayStation. It was made by a company who seem to specialize in travel cases:

Pasman koffertechniek B.V..
Palmpolstraat 45 (In de buurt)
1327 CB Almere
telephone: 036-5360154

I hope that this information is useful, however, should you have any further queries please call PlayStation Support on 0844 736 0595, quoting reference 2894738, where an advisor will be happy to assist you.

Thank you



I joined Assemblergame.com and I posted pictures of the item, one of the members lives in the area where it was made and maneged to find out some information for me:

"i got a call back from the old owner E. Pasman himself and he told me he made those cases in his small company like 15+ years back and it was not for sony them selfs but for a distributor of sony entertainment. Right here in the place where i live so he is gonna check if he can find the name of the company so i can just walk by maybe?

Next he told me he only got to make 200 pieces of the suitcase and not 1 more then that they had as purpose to be hired from certain video rental stores and such, thats why not everything is accessible in the case so you would walk in a video rental store pay a deposit and a rental price an you just get this case to take home for a few days.

He also told me this was only made in the time when the playstation still was very expensive and the distributor stopt ordering them when the big playstation price drop came.
so it was basically a protective case so the expensive ps would be save in hunderds of different hands from small to big "

There was a guy who was selling a lot of stuff from EU here in the UK, so I offered £125 and I got it!

It's very cool! I'm glad I managed to find what it was in the end. Much better looking then the Blockbuster cases.

Damm time flies by pretty fast can't believe 5 years have passed. It'just seems like yesterday that I have read this post of an ex rental case wich I only saw from dr retro xed in one of his video's

didn't really hunt for this ex rental case but still nice to finally score one for a decent price 70 euro's here.

The one on marktplaats 5 years ago went for allot more than just 50 I was there, saw it a few times here and there all with cracked insides wich again went for nice amounts way more than 50. The most recent one i saw was from a collector who approached me for a trade a nice condition one. Glad it didnt work out since it would have costed me well over a 100$ in trade, but some foreigner offered the guy close to 300$ worth of high quality ps1 titles such as raiden project rapic reload parodius a dozen of games kinda insane maybe it was true maybe not.

Most ex rental cases go for allot less more in the 50 70$ range if they are interesting in the outside but most of them are pretty dull even the ones prices around the 70 mark. but this case is definitely one of the more interesting looking ones hence why it would go for allot more from what I have seen. ugly looking rental cases withouth even an emblem of the console are almost worthless from what I have seen but understandable would personally not keep such rental cases visually not that great.

still can't believe that 5 years have passed by that quickly allot has changed over the years that's for sure.
