Just got an email about Celeste from LRG. They say standard editions will start shipping in October with CEs to follow in Mid-October. I'm skeptical, but we'll see I suppose.

I really like the LRG cover of Celeste but I guess I have to go with BBY for a copy. People are selling them for insane prices on eBay...$500+ for the CE? Hmmm.

I believe the Celeste CE was one of the quickest sellouts ever at LRG, which was a little surprising because I remember people complaining about the contents at the time.  Still, that price is indeed insane.

Not surprised as they literally do a CE for every game they produce anymore.

LRG f'd up. Josh probably said "go sign the goose game" and Doug signed Duck Game instead of Untitled Goose Game.

So what you're saying is that Josh sent Doug on a wild goose chase?

I wish LRG would have been clearer about Celeste being complete before the preorder ended. All we knew was there was going to be DLC so that it looked like LRG's release wouldn't be complete which kept me and my friends from preordering. Generally, my view with games grom Iam8BIT and LRG is that if I'm going to pay a premium for a physical copy, it best be a complete on-disc release. Many of us didn't think Celeste would be ... until way after preorders closed.

Oh well. I guess there's the Best Buy copy but wanted it on PS4.

Apparently Best Buy will be carrying copies of the Switch version of Duck Game, which is an interesting choice to carry.

 

Also, the PS4 version will be an open preorder.  LRG has stated that PS4 preorders tend to sell poor (especially those with Switch counterparts)  and I can't see this game doing much better.  That said, it will likely be one of the lowest print runs of any R1 PS4 game when all is said and done.  So if you intend on going for a full set eventually, you may want to get it now as it will likely be hard to find later.  Pure speculation, of course.

Manufacturing wasn't originally going to get delayed for the DLC because we didn't know about it's existence until pretty late in the process. Community feedback after the preorder closed led to the decision to delay manufacturing so that it could be included on the cart.

Two games I'd buy if LRG licensed them for Physical release would be Pyre and JJ MacField.

I'm aware and I'm certainly not suggesting anyone did consumers wrong
I do think though that given the late revelation, it would have been a pro customer gesture to reopen a limited window for those who didn't preorder because there was a lack of information about the final product.

Gamers are always advised never to preorder unless you know what you're getting. And in terms of these such physical releases where customers are particularly those who are about wanting complete disc games, that Celeste looked like it would be missing the final chapter was a dealbreaker. All my friends and I didn't bother with preorders because of that.

I'd suggest in the future that LRG be very clear what will be in the final product before closing preorders.

I'll add many og my friends also didn't preorder the power rangers game for the same exact reason.

You can still get a physical copy of Celeste. Just preorder from Best Buy or  get it on ebay if you need the PS4 version.

Nah. Would never pay that kind of premium to feed a scalper.

Never pay more than retail. No game for me is worth that.

The excess Pax merchandise - such as the Snatcher case and the Shantae case - go up for sale at 10am EST today.  Gonna have to pass on all of them myself, too many actual games to buy this month.

I'm gonna try for Snatcher as a long time fan, but I really don't care if I get it or not, so if it's gone in seconds, no big deal.

Bestbuy Pre-order Celeste. It's a complete version and all the DLC include Final Chapter on the cart?

It's complete until they announce an update to fix bugs in the Final Chapter DLC ;)

I was able to get everything I wanted today - a copy of Planet of the Apes for PS4, a Shantae GB Box, and the Shantae Soundtrack. :)

Is there a reason the Pax West bundle's price went up from $119 to $127? I kinda wish I didn't get it because I thought it would be hard to get everything I wanted (Snatcher cassette and all the Shantae stuff) but looks like everything I wanted stayed in stock for quite a while... 



#25044 hohle

They may have fixed it, but it seems like inventory was incorrect on the Shantae soundtrack for a while. I was able to add 2500 to my cart even though the listing says only 1,300 were made.

I noticed that too. I was going to go with the bundle since I wanted everything but the Vitamin Connection stuff and was willing to pay for the convenience of not missing something, but then the price was up this morning and everything but the bundle stayed in stock for at least 5 mins.

Shipping/production updates since 8/30 below, changes in bold.

 

Spoiler

 

Of note:

  • LRG has already shipped more games in September than they did in August (11 SKUs in September to-date, 10 in August)
  • Celeste finally gor a date of October.
  • LRG has 99 separate sold SKUs pending shipment. Considering a lot of these are open pre-orders we don't know the exact quantities, but if we estimate low at 2,000 then they need to ship about 198k units of already-sold product.This is up three SKUs from two weeks ago.
  • Last year, in Q3/Q4 LRG wasn't able to get their games pushed through Sony's production process due to a lot of other big name games being released and needing that factory time. I expect the same to happen this year, which will only compound the delays.
  • LRG lists over 20 games as shipping now or shipping soon, if their current pace keeps up that will take them through October to ship out (not including items listed as September/October). I believe everything in this category is stuff they have on hand so hopefully the pace picks up, but I would interpret anything listed as September for October/November and so on if you're trying to figure out when you'll get your items.
