Mmmmm... I'm not usually tempted by the collector's editions. I've passed on most of them. But that custom ShockBox is really turning my crank. A custom case that fits the PS4/Vita copy, and externally looks like the original AES cartridge box... that's some real good fan-service for collectors. Very true to the original Neo-Geo experience.

Someone in the comments mentioned that the case is numbered 001. LRG said, “the shock boxes are numbered for their own series (for folks who just want to collect this and any of our *theoretical* future SNK releases).”

Basically, there will be more coming.

Pretty psyched for KOF 97. Anything Samurai Shodown related would be totally welcome, especially a physical port of the original game on Vita. Woooooo that would be nice.

Anyone notice that the alterternative LRG cover for Windjammers is no longer showing on Best Buy’s site. It was there for a couple days but now I can’t find it.

Ugh.

I’m a massive fan of SNK. I prolly have 35 MVS carts (and of course, shockboxes for most of them).

That’s damn tempting...but I need to stay strong and stay out. I do not need to buy Neo Geo games again and again. :(

Is KOF getting an open pre-order for the standard?

These SNK games  should be in a compilation. Do the PS4 games have the same emulation as the PS2 compilation discs from a while back? How is the emulation in general?

Damn, I just saw Strangers Wrath for the PS3 is 4000 copies, holy hell, is that correct? That seems rather high, but maybe they know something I don't, I guess we'll see tomorrow.

Yeah, the page is completely gone. I’m assuming they sold out, because they were only getting like 5,000 copies if I remember correctly.

I think I would have preferred and AES style box or clamshell. The MVS boxes are so huuuuge.

If you think the replica box is neat, Bitmap Beureau is releasing working MVS and AES carts for Xeno Crisis. Now _that_ would have been a cool bonus.

A single KOF game on a ps4 disc or vita cart? What a waste, throw some more KOF games or a comp of SNK titles. Thee gonna charge $29/$29 I bet too!

With those numbered shockboxes, the train is starting to leave the station again. I want them all.

I highly doubt they sold out already.  None of the previously released LRG games at BB has sold out yet, and some even had a similar print run (like Battle Chef Brigade, I believe).

Good luck to those of you going for the TJ&E CE's today. 2500 on Switch, 1500 on PS4... with a limit of 2 per person & the backers already had first pickings.

Any1 going to sue LRG for that horrid Strangers Wrath cover? I think we’d win.

It must have gone pretty smoothly this morning uh, as nowhere near the traffic here like last weeks bloodbath, that's for sure. LOL

I checked 8 minutes into the sale. The switch CE was already sold out. There were 16 copies of the PS4 CE left. Hundreds of Oddworld were (and still are) available.

It looks like the Spelunky CE is still in stock for every platform. Given how fast the standard Vita copies sold I'm genuinely surprised that more people didn't get it. I get that the crowd is less and less enthralled by CEs, but the CE was about the price of a standard copy on eBay when I checked after last week's bloodbath.

Right after situation like last week, people go nuts and pay any price(if any actually sold), which can be insane to say the least. Do you remember back when Night Trap and Wonder Boy CE sold out ASAP, and fans and prices went into a frenzy? Within a few months of them being delivered, and Ebay being flooded, you could barely get retail for either. If anyone is paying much for these, it won't last long, as I'm sure 90% will be online soon enough, which will kill any profits for all involved.

I don't think theres any demand for a Collector's PS3 game, unfortunately. Especially when there's better ports out there. 

 

I was surprised TJ&E switch collectors lasted around 5 minutes. I got my copy, but I expected it to be sold out in the usual 2 minutes.

That's not accurate.  It looks like they are down to single digits of available copies of the Oddworld CE at this point and the morning sale is always a larger quantity than the afternoon.  Also, where are these "better" ports you speak of?  The Vita is the only other modern console port available unless you're talking about the various digital mobile ports.  The Switch version will hopefully be good, but it hasn't been released yet.

I picked up the night trap CE and ended up keeping the game and selling the steelbook for the price of the CE so profits vary between these CE releases. I think the morning batch of most of their releases sell out but the afternoon is where you really see whether the demand is there or not for some of the releases.

You have to gauge the community interest in order to really get an idea of what the actual after-market value is going to end up being. You can't just assume that the scarcity will take care of the issue for you. Scarcity is far more important in the long-term, not the short term. I small print run for a title that know one knows about and fewer people care about isn't going to go for much in the after-market. A game like that needs time and exposure for it's small print run to start working in its favor. Flippers who pile on such titles end up losing money, or at least not making nearly as much.

 

Night Trap was an easy mark. It may never have had the critical acclaim, but it had notoriety and historical significance to spare. All the classic game collectors were familiar with Night Trap. And the version they put out here was arguable the best release of the game ever, making it that much easier to go after it. (no postage-stamp sized videos for this version, no sir) I personally spent extra for the Switch version, just for the novelty of having this notorious cult-classic on a Nintendo system.

 

A lot of the lesser-known LRG releases aren't going to be sure-fire flipper titles though. Toe Jam and Earl is probably not going to be a very good flipper title. It has the name recognition, but any half-decent collector knows that it is a modern indie game, and not a re-release of the original title. It's also a title that hasn't even come out yet, so there is no way to properly review it for critical appraisal. Much more risky for short-term investment. If the reviews for the game come back negative, short-term collector interest will nosedive. Only the most die-hard fans and collectors show up for a bad entry in a series.

All the other SNK games people are asking for could have easily been part of a compilation. SNK does random compilations all the time. Did they list a price for the KoF 97 CE? I'm not going to get it I just want to see how overpriced it is. That all being said I'll still probably grab a standard copy.

My mistake, I thought Stranger's Wrath already had been released on PS4 - but I guess last I read, it was only rumors. Nevermind then!

It's coming out on Switch so we can expect that from LRG at some point.

So I just ordered 2 copies of Stranger's Wrath, assuming it will ship in a box for free, but realized these are for PS3 and I'm not sure if the free LRG box applies to my order.

 

Anyone from LRG here know? Or able to assist on how I can go about adding a box to my order if needed?  Thanks!
