Try no to drop them or use them with caveman hands. :P To be fair most CD case will break if you look at them funny.
Like anyone reads the rubbish in the signature.

I don't get the problem with them. I mean, nothing can be worse than PAL Saturn cases.
I still wished someone would make reproduction boxes, that will be a bright day when that hapens.
Why don't you just buy a load of slim,jewel,traditional,CD (I'm not sure what they are called) cases and make them "NTSC" style?
Just pull out the front and back graphic and slide them into the new case, then you wont have to worry about the hinges breaking off every time you wanna play Jet Set Radio.
Having over 200 of these, I am rather an authority :P They break everywhere, hinge on the front bit of the case, hinge on the blue bit, disc holding teeth random, cracks appear seemingly without reason everywhere, it's horrific if you're a collector with some sort of compulsion to have immaculate cases for everything. I can see why they made them so big (Massive PAL manuals) but that's not ecuse for such fragility lol. The vast majority of my collectiona are fine though, if you're careful everything is sunshine lollipops and rainbows
And the standard PAL saturn cases were the printed cardboard ones, with mostly first party games having plastic covering were they not?

Well making the cases Ntsc style kinda defeats the propose of having a nice collection, personaly i wouldnt mind of paying for a good bash of reproduction boxes. Seriously someone needs to work on that. but yeah has hedgeyourbets says "they break everyware" and yeah i totaly forgot about the disc holding teeth those things are random as shit, thankfully there are Two places were you can put the disc.
Also about the saturn cases some have a plastic cover, much like a dvd, or the mega drive boxes.
The hinges on PAL dreamcast games suck ! the slightest bump might actually break them and accidently putting the disc back in the cases the wrong way results in broken teeth such a pain ! the person who made them deserves the darwin award
Claimed to be originals, but watch the Dreamcast lettering: should be black; these ones are blue embossed.
Probably the worst design for a CD Case ever tbh. They break all the time and even if you are super gentle with them which led me to stop collecting PAL releases at a young age. The JAP releases are beautiful, don't break easy and come with the obi.
I take all Shenmue 3 rumors with a grain of salt...bigger than Lan Di's ego
In 32 bit gen Sega had tall case and Sony had square case, in 128 bit gen Sony had tall case and Sega had square case. I don't get it...
PAL cases came in both ways. I think, the later releases have the blue embossed style. For example, Shenmue II and Headhunter have the blue embossed dreamcast wording in the plastic like these cases.Claimed to be originals, but watch the Dreamcast lettering: should be black; these ones are blue embossed.
I've had NTSC cases be just as fragile as PAL. Every jewel case (and longbox for that matter) easily crack without much effort and will have their hinges break. For some reason DC cases tend to break teeth inside (probably because the plastic is brittle rather than somewhat flexible as with most black plastics used internally), hinges and just about everything else.
My feedback thread, since it seems somewhat difficult for people to find.
