Your Secret Home For High-Res Box Art Images

There are plenty of times you need nice high-res box art images. Maybe you need to print a replacement. Maybe you want to do some photoshop work. Maybe you just want some new desktop wallpaper.

Whatever your reasons, an enterprising soul over on NeoGAF has found a sneaky solution that lets you pull big, clean images from IGN without the site’s trademark watermark.

All you need to do is this. On a game's page on the site, the box art image url would normally look like this:

But if you delete the boxart_160h part, so that it reads like this:

You get a huge, clean image. Handy!

Note it doesn't work for all games, especially older ones, but more recent titles should be good to go.

  • That’s nice and all, but if you wanted to print out a replacement, what about the back and/or spine of the cover?

  • A few years back pirates all across the globe would have rejoiced. Now it’s all digital.

  • or you no, you could get perfect high res versions without the ESRB rating and withought going to IGN(orant) just by going to CDcovers.cc

  • realllllly plunket… reallllyyyy..

    1) there are website databases dedicated to high res box art like thegamesdb.net

    2) you are promoting another games news website and showing people a loophole within its design

    3) another typical plunket article, that reads like a facebook post

  • The transparency of this site is just mind-boggling. I can’t believe they try and defend themselves from this.
