Grabbed the standard of Bloodstained and it was really easy.  Hope everyone else had the same experience.

Yeah, I had issues, but got a copy just barely.

I forgot about getting it (way too busy and too much on my mind). I'm likely missing the later one, so will get Bloodstained digitally.

Surprised to see mega bundle go first. Also that the Hole New World NES cart stuck around as long as it has (after what happened with Galf).

This was one of the longest queues I've been in. I was pulling my pubes out as I stared at this screen for what felt like hours.

The checkout line took a couple minutes instead of seconds like usual but I got the classic edition for Vita no problem

I knew with the polarity of this title, and the low Vita qty's, it was gonna be beyond busy and another bloodbath(no pun intended). LOL

Same thing happened to me, minus the pubes part of course.

Lot of traffic today due to Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon.  Site was chugging like crazy, with the reappearance of the queue as well.  Had to abandon plans to redeem one of the rewards coupons because it was a race against time to checkout.

Okay how is anyone supposed to get these releases? Once again I refreshed, added the LE to my cart and went to check out with my saved information. As I click complete order it tells me it's sold out...wtf? The clock hadn't even turned 10:01 yet and the game is deleted out of my cart and sold out? There has got to be a better way.

I couldn't even get past the initial checkout, where it queued me in line for minutes and finally told me it was sold out.

They lasted closer to around 10:04ish for me. Did you make it to the checkout line? I'm wondering if there is something wrong with the browsers people use because I've yet to miss something I wanted no matter how limited or fast it goes

That was the longest checkout line for me since they started, glad my order went through though.

It's only going to get worse for Vita titles at this point, as the collectors market for all things Vita is getting pretty rabid at this point.

Had the chance to nab the CE for PS4, but backed out last minute. Just can't drop $55 for a game I already own digitally on my Switch. Love Castlevania, but can't say I loved Curse of the Moon the same way, it's good for sure, but I'd rather play just about any of the 2D Castlevania games.

I didn't get a copy of Bloodstained for the Vita. I probably could have if I hadn't thrown a copy of A Hole New World and the Escapists in my cart. But I like to combine shipping for these. Insuring that you games get shipped in a box together is one of the best ways to avoid damage. So I missed out on the Vita version. Oh well. Just tossed the Switch version in my cart instead. It's nice having options.

 

With the widely publicized demise of the Vita, Vita collectors are getting more rabid than ever. And 2000 is a low print run, even for LRG. Curse of the Moon was always going to be a bloodbath. (appropriate I suppose, given its title)

The balls dropped as I refreshed the Vita Classic edition and it was showed as sold out immediately after the countdown. Luckily after adding everything else to the cart and coming back and refreshing again it ended up being available. 

 

I did notice the NES game was available a few seconds before 10.

 

You'll notice that they seem to do it manually. One after another they'll become available to add to cart.

This was my experience as well.  I was expecting much worse honestly.  I was stuck in the queue for maybe 10 seconds, but I got the Classic Edition Vita version.

I had to wait in line until almost 10:02 and when I finally did check out after that I was able to snag a Switch and Vita CE of Bloodstained (probably around 10:03).  Seems odd that you would get a sold out message before 10:01.

think its because its just the soundtrack on an nes cart not the game it self

Maybe I'm just old school LRG with a lot of practice or something but I had no issues. Log in a couple minutes beforehand and refresh over and over. Are people making sure they're logged into PayPal beforehand too?

I input my credit card info and hit complete order and got a sold out message so I have no idea. I must have terrible luck or a bad browser or something because I've missed several of the big releases lately despite rabidly refreshing waiting until 10. If I have under 30 seconds to complete orders I honestly don't know if it's worth it at this point. I guess I'll try again at 6 and if not just go with a regular copy. Just the world's way of telling me not to drop 60 bucks on a $10 digital game haha.

Got my standard copy of Bloodstained this morning for Vita with no issues.
I'm excited to see how they update the trophies for the physical release.
I hope they add a platinum since they did the same for Race the Sun.

I hear those "many" WiiU owners cheering happily right now for this. They are just gunning down shots and everything.
