Hello I wanted to buy a certain PS3 game in ebay. I looked if it exists new and there was one listed as new and factory sealed, however it doesn't have the PS3 tear strip that comes with the european games to confirms it, even thought it's Y folded.

In the description it says that not all games come with the strip and when I asked why the game doesn't have one he said some publishers don't put a tear strip to save money and many games don't come with one and that the game is new. I'm willing to believe him because he has 100% feedback and all other games come with the strip, but I still have my doubts.

Is it true what he is saying? I don't know know much about this.

European here. I have two sealed PS3 games at the moment and both of them have a strip: Deus Ex Human Revolution Enhanced Edition has a proper PS3 labeled strip, while Skyrim Legendary Edition has a generic barely visible strip. Both are UK copies, store bought.

That said, I seem to recall opening games that didn't have a strip, but it was quite a few years ago and I may be mixing up memories with xbox games, so take that with a grain of salt or even two.

I know this doesn't solve your problem but that's all I got for you, sorry.
