The Ys plan is solid, no issues from me, except for maybe if I try and get the CE alone, or try for Asdivine Hearts in the same order(to save on shipping)?

 

With 2 separate systems being offered in regards to the CE, I should be OK, as most of the recent issues where from the CE being offered on only the PS4, and everyone trying to get it. Now at least the mad mob will have two options for running amok. LOL

Yep, I think this might actually be an easier CE to get compared to the past few weeks as the contents and packaging are the same for both the PS4 and Vita version and I suspect at least some people won't want both.  There are 6,000 copies of the CE evenly split on the two platforms, so hopefully it lasts at least a few minutes.

well at least scaplers will have no interest (or little) in the Ys Regular Ediitons for Vita and PS4. Wonder if they will take this route with other titles in the future.

Just got the email with the details on Ys. All regular copies are being manufactured to demand. So what I suggested. Interesting. I will be preordering this and I'm fine with the tower art and am glad it's reversable.

I think from the sound of it, doing the previous strategy with a different cover variant probably wasn't practical or feasible this late in the game for this release, so they will probably just use the current stock to fulfill the early pre-orders, and if the pre-orders exceed their current stock of what they've already received, they'll have them manufacture more later to meet the demand.  This also leads me to believe that the standard edition numbers they were planning to release originally probably weren't that high to begin with so they could take such a calculated risk like this, and not worry their original quantity count they received won't sell out.

 

If they were going to do a pre-order, they might as well just go this route instead of doing something weird with more cover variant nonsense.

 

Probably still a bloodbath for the CEs Friday, but for those who don't care about that, this works out.

 

Let's see if pre-order try number three (excluding Lawbreakers) will actually work without a hitch or massive delay. :D

Just going with a standard copy.  The CE is pretty underwhelming.

It's 54.99 for the CE for Vita and PS4.

I for one am extremely happy with the preorder idea.

If Ferrariracer posted in this thread the CE cover would be posted all marked up "reseller edition". It's guaranteed limited and a fairly well known action RPG series. I'd be shocked if it's not gone like Wonderboy and Night Trap CE's.

I can't see this preorder attempt failing. The only way I see it really not doing well is if they fabricate some ludicrous (insert Spaceballs reference) projected amount they were going to sell (like 20k) when it only does maybe 10k for standard copies combined.

Yeah, I'm super glad they scrapped the variant cover as well. As I was going to try and buy it, but now since it's not being offered, I'm saving some dollars, which is always a good thing. So I'll just go for the CE, and then the Kemco RPG, and I'm done. I should hopefully be able to get both in the am offering, so long as they go up at the same time.

I really want to like this but the covers are just hideous. Blech.

 

Part of the fun of getting physical copies is enjoying how the case looks and this is doing nothing for me.

So no third "preorder variant", can just order 2 of either platform in the 24 hour period and get both default facing covers with nothing to worry about.

 

Awesome.

I really enjoy good game art, so when it happens, great. But when it doesn't, I'm happy to play a great game, as the medium being offered is really to small for me to enjoy most of the time anyways(Vita cases).

 

I grew up console gaming with the 2600, where the box art was beyond amazing, and the games looked like s**t! LOL I also grew up with record albums, where the size was big, and the art could really be enjoyed. Once cassette tapes, and then CD's took over, so did my interest in the art, as then it was to small to really enjoy properly.

 

I still like seeing good art from time to time, but it's less important, due to the size where it's offered. The PS4 cases, and CE offer a better size to art on the sleeve or box, but for handheld offerings(which is most of what I buy), it's pretty worthless for me as the art is so small.

 

EDIT: I'll still pick up a good poster for a gaming title, when they are offered, but they are few and far between, which really does suck, as some game art is really nice. I just can't enjoy it as it's offered currently most of the time.

I wish I kept my $25 shipped PA order. I switched it over to Blue Rider when LRG announced they were publishing it.

Having the pre order go live before the CE might help a few more folks score one (CE)? Just a thought but it may help some people.

So, there's no cover variants for the standard edition, other than the PAX West cover? If that's the case, then I think it's a reasonable approach for the pre-orders.

People saying they would buy if it wasn't sold out (re: WB and NT) better put their money where their mouth is and order 10k+ units of Y's.

I will not be at all surprised if this sells like 6500 units. It would be nice to be wrong don't get me wrong but...

Looks like no preorder variant, though the email mentioned a PAX-exclusive variant cover for the PS4 version that will be available at the online store later.

Operative word being "later" and hopefully not with any other hotly anticipated small run game.

Not following.  They are taking unlimited preorders for the standard edition.  As long as you place your order, there is no danger of it selling out.

A little off topic but has anyone played YS:Origin on the PS4? Is it any good. Seen mixed reviews on it.

I was super glad to see it was PS4 only, as that was great news for me, as I'm on the LRG Vita team. LOL

Does anyone have an extra copy of Night Trap they would be willing to part with at about retail price? Regular or collector's doesn't matter...but if I had a preference it'd be collector's. Trying to secure a copy for a friend.


Lol

Ebay has tons

Order the Asian versions, much better covers. I already have the Vita Asian version ordered, trying to decide which others to get. But I agree with you.

I'm the opposite, I like the clean look of the blue side of LRG's version over the stereotypical "busy" JRPG cover with the entire cast crowding up the front (e.g. most of the Tales Of... box arts).

 

Also, I guess to answer my own question earlier, according to LRG's twitter the intitial batch of Ys Origin is currently being manufactured and expected to arrive at their location next Monday.  The initial batch consists of 7500 PS4 copies and 6500 Vita copies.  Since the Collecter's Editions are 3000 and 3000 each and are assembled from the same pool, this means there will be 4500 PS4 and 3500 Vita standard edition copies available for first shipment. 

 

Any orders beyond that will presumably need to be manufactured separately and will ship later.  Not sure how LRG prioritizes orders, whether by location or first in/first out, but if is by FIFO there is a distinct benefit to getting in your order as soon as it opens, otherwise you might end up in the second batch.

You can order a PS4 Limited and Vita Limited right? Not just one limited edition total?
