Plastic box protectors. They make them in a size for almost every system now. I don't use them though. I just keeps the games and cases on a shelf on in a storage tote if not displayed. If they get worn from use so be it.

My disc games are on shelves, as are my DS & 3DS games. My older, cartridge games are all in tubs except for my NES games which are in Nintendo-branded hard plastic cases.

I store everything on shelves. I have three large shelf units in my bedroom/game room, one in the hall leading into that room; a bit cramped but it's largely unused space so it works out well for me. Finally I have a couple of shelves in the living room, which are used for my Wii U and PS3 collection (as those systems are in the living room) as well as my tabletop gaming books, board games etc. I keep most of my stuff in plastic protectors. This includes Sega Saturn, PS4, Vita, PS3, and more... It's quite moist here (I live within 3 miles of the coast) so anything left in the open will get slightly damp or sticky. Mould is a very real problem here. I often have to treat my walls with specialist paint to get rid of the mould, and I have cloth covers on my consoles when not in use to keep dust and spores out of them. I try to look after my collection as best I can.

Does anyone know of any plastic protectors that will fit the playasia limited edition ps4 boxes? I.e. Cursed Castilla, ghost blade hd etc.. I don't have any other types of boxed games to compare them to, so I was wondering if maybe another type of game is around the same size as these and could fit? I creased the corner on one of the cardboard sleeves and I'm seriously considering rebuying a copy because it's driving me nuts to see it on my shelf.... damm OCD....

Can't say for sure without trying it out, but you may want to try a Neo Geo AES Box Protector. If anything it may prove slightly too big, but those are the only easily available box protectors that I expect it will fit into. You can buy them here.

It's weird that they don't tell the measurements of the boxes?

But i think a neogeo box is around:

14,5 cm x 18,5 cm x 3,5 cm

In the spirit of this topic, I'm interested in how people organize/sort LE's of various sizes.
It got to be too much for me, storage-wise so I:
A) took all the games out and put them on my game shelf,
B) took out all the soundtracks and put them with my music, and
C) took out all artbooks and put them with my books.
I left the rest of the contents in the LE boxes (keychains and other fun stuff I won't use,) and carefully boxed the LEs all up and put them in storage. I left a few of the more striking ones out to sit atop various shelves. Feels a little odd sectioning out my LEs this way, though. How do others keep theirs?

I actually do a lot of what you do, except "storage" for me is shelves in my closet and plastic bins, and I don't have any of my LEs on display anywhere. But the other stuff I do the same!
