Power Rangers will include all the season pass content on disc that hasn't been released yet. Apparantly they replied yesterday and I missed it.e671219aa6d43a8bcd808499dccdaec7.jpg

Thanks. Would want to know what these are before the preorder period ends. Does the game have a complete story mode? I recall hearing that was a work in progress, i.e. not done yet.

It looks like Power Rangers is really stagnating on the LRG site. Switch CEs usually fly off the figurative shelves, but it's not even to the point of low stock yet. I think they really overestimated how popular this would be. Power Rangers is pretty niche, the game bombed pretty hard in reviews, and it's one of their most expensive releases to date. I can see a lot of these making their way to blink boxes or their unannounced retail partner.

They still like 1580 copies, which is more than half the allotment for the Switch. I’m surprised at how slow it selling as well. They do have a lot of releases on Friday, so maybe people are waiting to combine shipping.

It looks like it bombed more for it's release model as opposed to the gameplay itself. I'm not into fighting games, so I can't assess if it's any good. But it sounds like the physical copy will at least have a decent amount of fighters, modes, and arenas.

Jak 1 CE is finally arriving for those who ordered the December 7th Playstation Bundle. I'm interested to see what these Star Wars CE's look like. Bounty Hunter is one of those hidden gem Star Wars games that no one ever talks about.

This thread is dead. Major bust on that VITA announcement.

Took an extra minute for Oddworld New 'n Tasty to go up. I was worried about the Vita releases selling out, so I placed an order with those first, then separately ordered Oddworld once it became available. Too bad they don't combine orders anymore.

 

Aaand Guacamelee has sold out of its first allotment. Probably could have gotten them all in one order without the bundle, but it was a narrow window.

I don't know about that.  All of the Vita games this morning are already sold out including the bundle.

Yeah, I waited for the standard edition of Oddworld to try and get it with the two Vita titles but Guac sold out.  Oh well, guess I will try again at 6 and if it happens again I save a bunch of money this week and LRG loses me as a all-in Vita customer.  Win win for me I guess since it seems they are gouging the price of all their remaining Vita releases.

Both Vita gone already. Guacamelee went very quick. Tales from Space was gone in a little over 3 mins. Glad they limited Guacamelee to 1 per account. Thankfully LRG had their crap sorted out with their store today and it didn't end up a circus like last time they had Vita offerings. Checked out with both games very fast with zero issues.

Guacamelee went surprisingly fast considering it was one per person. I know the game is popular but I thought demand would somewhat be stymied by its physical releases on other platforms.

So stupid, I had to do the exact same thing because I knew the Vita games would go quick. Why LRG can’t get their act together is frustrating.

I think everyone is just trying to finish their sets, but I'm getting some of these games cheaper on eBay and Mercari than buying directly from LRG. Shit is a bit overpriced for me.

 

Bought the PS3 CE because I have almost a complete PS3 CE collection. I'm missing like 10 games, so I said Fuck it.

Got my order in but no idea why they increased the limit for Mutant Blobs when it has fewer copies available.

Makes no sense. I've been saying for several Vita runs now that LRG absolutely need to limit all Vita games to 1 per person. Their excuse in the past to making it two per person is that they were worried they wouldn't sell out. Well, I mean, how much more proof do they need that Vita games are going to sell out easily even if it's only 1 per person? They could have a 2,000 copy Vita run of the worst game imaginable and it would still sell out at 1 per person at this point.

Was able to get the 2 Vita games. Damn, it seems nobody wants those Power Ranger CEs. I passed due to the game being $60. Too much imo. Like the steelbook but basically $100 after tax and shipping for a mediocre game and steelbook.

The correct answer I think is it's less shipping on their end if everyone buys 2 copies. 1000 packages instead of 2000 really probably makes a difference.

Less money as well, though. They are turning a profit on their shipping and handling. Also, if it was all about less shipping then they would have made the title with the higher print run 2 per person rather than 1. Who knows.

They’re turning a profit on S&H?

I do feel most of the Vita releases will go quickly so be prepared even for some not so great games. Only two I still want are the Damascus Gear games. Hopefully will get them, but yeah these releases will be bloodbaths from now on no matter what is put up for the Vita games.

Guacamelee has all the DLC included with the physical release?

Yeah, Josh or Doug mentioned it on Twitter. Justified it by saying that they wanted to pay their shipping teams a good wage ($15/hr + benefits IIRC). So in a way you are still paying for "shipping" in the sense that the money is going to the shipping team, but it is a little bit of a gray area.

 

An admirable goal, but I don't feel like inflating shipping costs is the best way to pay your staff personally.

They have to be turning a net profit. They don't make as much on larger and boxed orders since the shipping weight drives up their cost, but on people who order only 1 or 2 games they are making a tidy little profit. A Vita game in its case weighs next to nothing. The bubble mailers LRG buys are bought in bulk, and they've said in the past the odd colors make them even cheaper. I don't know how much they pay per mailer, but it has to be under 50 cents per mailer. LRG have said they pay their laborers a living wage plus some benefits (which is good and I have no problem with), but even when factoring that into the mix it still doesn't come out to much money in labor per bubble mailer stuffed and sealed. Obviously various overhead costs will factor in as well, but given the volume LRG currently do that still shouldn't bring the costs up to the point they aren't turning a nice little profit on charging $5.50 to ship a game or two in a bubble mailer.

Craziest thing was when I wanted to redeem my rewards points for a single trading card. It had $5.50 shipping. Nevermind...

Yeah, I got burned the same way for a keychain, and it was shipped in a HUGE bubble mailer, 3 times the size of the standard one, but even shipping for that would have been $3.50 at most, and that includes the mailer cost as well. So yeah, I ship hundreds of items a year, and they are making some profit on shipping, but based on the amount of issues I'm sure they have with losses and damages, it's probably a wash in the end.

 

EDIT: And if their using those funds to pay the shipping department, as stated, that's not really profit at that point. Depending on the volume, of course they may be making some funds, but I would rather deal with 1000 of an item, than trying to ship 2000 to maybe make $1 on each item, as then there is the factor of "time" to ship those extra 1000. So I may make $1000 for the extra 1000 items shipped, but then I've probably lost funds depending on the time factor involved doing so.

Thank you that means I saved myself some money. I guess them putting the complete games on cart now is bull shit and there original model of preserving the complete physical game doesn't matter anymore. Guacamelee is a great game and it is a shame they didn't release the complete game physically.

The point  I was addressing was that they are charging more than the cost of packaging and actual shipping charges to ship an item to you. I doubt anyone outside of LRG actually knows whether or not they turn net profit on shipping, because to definitively say one way or another you'd need to know a lot of information they don't publicize (shipping team gross salary, cost of envelopes, units shipped per hour, etc.)
