  3. I guess the new copy of FFIX I ordered off of Amazon is a fake.

It just came today, original case, manual, and all, but the discs were not black like a standard PS1 game, but instead silver like a music disc. I take it that means it's a fake, or a bootleg perhaps?

It works flawlessly, so I guess it's fine given how dirt cheap it was ($3 plus $4 shipping), but still, I was already a little suspicious of how little this game seems to go for, so maybe I should investigate into the buyer a bit more next time.

Pretty much. I can't tell if those have a black surface though.

This one seem to have a grey surface.

The black ones have the little inch plastic where the CD is mounted in the console black.

I might be wrong, though.

So it might be legit then? The Greatest Hits version I just got? If it's a fake it's a damn good one seeing as it has the (supposedly) original case and manual.

I think it could be legit.

Also there is this:

However, I am taking the images form the internet. If those images are from not original copies, I couldnt know.

You can compare the barcode against this one:

Seems original enough.
