    I think that's the rare vs hard to find argument. Numbers wise they are rare games, but they aren't hard to find at all. Even Breach and Clear is all over eBay for anyone willing to pay the premium. Contrast that with Ar Nosurge (US), that as far as I know had a much higher print run, so numbers wise isn't as rare... but there (at least when I've just looked now) no active listings on eBay.

    Thats kinda what I'm getting at. By going "limited run only 2000" copies, you publicise the item as something rare and sought after instead of it becoming that naturally and all you do there is sting collectors and gamers who want a copy by creating this buzz out of nowhere. Who is that benefiting? I can only speak for myself but I buy these releases because I support physical games and I enjoy collecting as a hobby

    Okay, to say it in what I remember used to be forum-speak: you ninja'ed me. And, you again formulated my thoughts better.

    This thread is going places. That brain line is one I quote far too often :)

    968209993244856322 is not a valid tweet id


    Worth noting in the chain they mention around 1000 copies per platform will be up for grabs April-ish so if you missed out originally, be ready.

    I like the rush honestly. Only one time I missed something but I was able to get it on the second batch.

    Man it really feels like a lifetime ago that I bought LRG Skullgirls. So many things in my life are totally different now. Hmm once I get this, I should probably sell my Japanese version off. I'll have no need for two copies on this specific game, because it's one out of a handful of Vita titles that let you play multiplayer off of one game cart Via the PS-TV! It's probably my favorite feature of the PS-TV.

    given the hype around this due to how long it's been ongoing 1,000 will not even slightly satisfy the actual demand.

    The people who order the new 1,000-ish units should have to wait a year to get it like we did.

    I missed 2, once I just completely forgot. Then another time was the Bit Trip/Firewatch release, FW kept selling out before I could complete the checkout and I wasn't going to just buy BT alone, tbh that was the run that broke my streak and stopped me getting the PS4 games. I wonder how many others have stopped for the same reasons.

    Hopefully they release the Vita version too. It looks like a fun shmup.

    Well that was a shock. Thought it was spam when I got an email confirming my Limited Run Games order had dispatched... did anyone else forget they'd actually pre ordered Skull Girls? Next shock is gonna be if Bloodstained ships XD

    3000 CEs, and 1000 SEs? Isn't it usually the other way around? I'll be struggling for an SE at that rate.

    I'll try for the SE. Probably skip it if I don't get checked out with one.
