User Summary

Player's Choice is a marketing label used by Nintendo in North America and Europe to promote video games on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and Game Boy, and later applied it to the Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Advance. The label was introduced on May 20, 1996 and went until 2010 where it was replaced by Nintendo Selects.

The Player's Choice name was applied to the Nintendo 64 and Nintendo GameCube games that sold more than 250,000 copies. When a game becomes a Player's Choice title, it is sold at a lower price, which, at current recommended retail prices, is £19.99 in the United Kingdom, USD$19.99 in the United States, CDN$29.99 in Canada, AUD$49.95 in Australia and €29.99 throughout the Eurozone.

American NTSC Player's Choice games can be identified on the Nintendo 64 by the yellow background of the N64 logo in the upper right corner of the game box. On the Nintendo GameCube and Game Boy Advance, games are marked in a yellow box on the top of the case. PAL region Player's Choice games have boxes that are colored silver or platinum with Player's Choice markings on right hand side of a Nintendo 64 box or on the top of a Nintendo GameCube box. Super Nintendo games had the words "Super Nintendo Entertainment System" written in gold (instead of the usual red) on the box, along with a "Player's Choice" seal.
