It's going to be Scott Pilgirm and you have to wait two years for the collector's edition but it will be worth the wait.

Me reading in real time on the first Xbox release...

 

It's probably a Kemco game. 

Yea, that's what it's gonna be.

 

Bold of you all to assume they won't use this opportunity to release a Shantae game for the fourth time.

No wait, THIS is what it'll be!

I'm just waiting for them to finally to put up the original Shantae for the PS4.  The only one I need to complete the sereis.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was the case. Although it is just as likely to be any of WayForward's offerings. WayForward has been one of Limited Run's most prolific development partners. I have no doubt that they would be happy to re-sell any of their previously released games on the XBox in a physical format.

 

Saturday Morning RPG would also be a good guess. This game was developed by Limited Run's internal development team. It's one of the games they can release anywhere they want while being able to call all the shots themselves. Not a bad choice for an initial run on a platform they haven't tackled before.

Pretty sure their first XBox release will be Scott Pilgrim, though it would be cool if it was an XBox only title.

I'm still a bit surprised LRG is bothering with Xbox physical releases. The gamers on that console are, compared to Switch/PlayStation owners, simply less interested in physical releases. As the home of Game Pass and the primary pusher of an all digital console, I foresee LRG having a much more difficult time hitting larger orders there. We'll see.

that may be true but some of us still want physical games for Xbox exclusives like the recently released game Tunic. Or STILL digital only games like Cuphead

LRG does NES and Sega CD games, I dunno why anyone would think the Xbox would be exempt from people wanting to order physical games from.

He's not wrong, though. Xbox is the least popular console for collecting, even less so than NES or Sega CD. Every Xbox console combined only has a few expensive games and the majority of games on Xbox consoles literally only cost a few dollars each. Most Xbox gamers are the type that play the newest COD, Madden, etc. and then throw away or trade in their old copies for pennies and move on to the next thing which is why digital and Game Pass seems to be the way to go for most people on that system. I'm not an Xbox hater, by the way. I personally like collecting for Xbox because it's so cheap for this reason. But the Xbox market in general is geared towards western people who look at gaming like a disposable hobby. The other consoles have people like this as well but they also have more hardcore gamers, niche gamers, collectors, etc. Pretty much every niche series that they tried to put on Xbox failed commercially why is why they gave up trying to get Japanese or niche exclusives.

How the hell do you think NES games aren't collectable?

I never said that. I was responding to another guy's post about NES games and said that Xbox games are less collectible than even NES games. Where did you read me saying that NES games aren't collectible? It's certainly not in the post you quoted...



Also, is it true that BBY is done with LRG? If so I'm pissed because they were supposed to be stocking the Castlevania games and I believe Panzer Dragoon on PS4.

Your post implies that NES and Sega CD games are on the low end of collecting as in Xbox is even lower than the "low" systems of NES and Sega CD. I do not think that is true of NES games at all.

Yeah has anything official been said about BBY not carrying LRG titles anymore?  Its been months since BBY put any new listings up, and none of the recent LRG descriptions have mentioned BBY carrying the titles.  If true, this sucks as I always preferred to order from them.

Wasn't Amazon going to start carrying LRG titles? Maybe that has something to do with it? 

 

Also, maybe this is BB just continuing to cull physical games? I've heard many BBs (including mine) started to simply pull games from shelves and now keep them elsewhere.

Its true tho. Game.com, Okama Gamesphere, and Ouya are the hot new collector's items. NES is like a distant #17

Honestly, pandemic retro boom overlooked NES. Gamecube, DS, 3DS, Switch, PS3, Vita, and PS1 are the ones that got a huge boost. Pretty much the generation that grew up gaming in 2000's are helping steer the market.

Amazon seems to only have LRG distro titles so far.

Best Buy seems to be going through a change. They are killing their rewards program for the most part and going all in on their TotalTech. Selling video games does not appear to be focus.

As a reseller I'll tell you what boomed.

GameCube and PS3 games along with weird stuff like Wii systems. Vita stuff is hard for me to sell no one wants that trash. PS1 has tanked. DS and 3ds is only spiking due to the store closing same with the Wii u. The same bundle I had at $500 sold at $1200 after sitting for months it's hilarious.

Then my baby the switch. Switch is odd I have over a 1000 physical games and I can never tell what will be "rare".

It seems like NES didn't get a jolt from the pandemic but it did. The reason it doesn't look this way is because NES (and SNES as well) were on the downswing prior and the pandemic stabilized the prices. You can actually see this on Pricecharting. It fits in with the rest of your post because those systems you mentioned are now in peak nostalgia and NES is largely off peak and SNES is right at the cusp. GC far and away got the biggest bump. Take a look at this article my friend wrote, particularly the chart halfway down:

It's understandable. NES and SNES were much older, more established systems when it comes to the second-hand market. GameCube was a largely overlooked system that was in the right place to get a nostalgic upswing, and also had far less actual physical stock compared to systems like the NES and SNES. (On account of having never moved as many units when it was actually being sold) It's the GameCube's time to shine when it comes to second-hand sales. It also doesn't hurt that we are finally getting some decent third-party video adapter options for the GameCube, allowing it to look a bit better on modern flat-panel screens.

 

The PS1 and PS2 aren't going to have nearly as much of a bump, on account of them having an enormous amount of units. Also, the second-hand game market for those systems is extremely well established, and most of the super-expensive games for them are already quite expensive. They might see a slight bump when Sony's streaming system provides some of those older games with extra exposure.

 

The later console generations are going to be odd for second-hand collecting. The 360 and younger featured near-parity in overall unit capacity, as well as some of the longest console cycles in history. This means tons of actual stock, so practically non-existent scarcity, and very long generations during which people could start collecting. It was also peak time for second-hand stores like GameStop, so actual games were plentiful and cheap, with lots of shopping options during their actual lifespans. Games and systems from those generations are going to take way longer to rise in price on the second hand market. Savvy collectors simply went out and got the games they wanted when they were still on store shelves.

Man, I really regret not collecting more PS3 games pre-COVID. There was a point where I almost trimmed my collection and now I'm having to pay $15 for some common ass games like Dead Space. 

 

All this speculative talk and I'm just wondering what's the best way to insure my collection. Most everything I read says that insurance companies don't seriously consider games to be collections worth value, like classic cars or older comics. I just hit 4k games officially yesterday and just thought "man, one fire and all this is gone".

Fuuuuuck I knew it. Of course they're using LRG for Contra. At least the Ninja Turtles is regular retail (with a very overpriced, LRG-esque collectors edition).

Yeah, they're really not worth all that much value. Even the most valuable of classic games take close to 30 years to properly appreciate. A lot of it is related to just how young and turbulent the games industry is. People have been making cars for quite some time. The video game industry is only properly around 40 years old, and has seen an enormous amount of change and fluctuation in that time. It's not really good for speculative collecting. While I might enjoy game collecting, I've never tried to resell, as its just not a good way to make money. It's just a hobby I enjoy because I love video games.

Not sure what is going on here. Recent LRG games have shown up randomly in quantities that aren't going to sell out for awhile. And yet the smaller releases that used to last a month or less have all but disappeared.

Not a good way to make money lol? That's not a serious post is it? You have guys like chase after the right price, phoenix resale,me ect doing it full time.

I don't think you comprehend how much games are.

Anyway to the insurance guy there's a handful that will insurance collectibles but they will want every single item valued and with photos. I don't have the retro games insured but my switch collection is at 35k. I'd suggest you take the time and use game eye. That will show a base value. If you are in Florida PM me and I'll set you on the right path.
