I wonder if Ys is going to be the hybrid preorder I suggested where before setting the quantity for sony to manufacture, they sell it like a preorder. The turnaround would be much quicker than a typical preorder and everyone that orders one gets one. Extras then can be sold Black Friday style when stock arrives. Everyone wins.

I mean, that's basically the same idea as the membership, but without the membership fee, so it's definitely looking up if they go this route for the bigger releases. :D

Ys Origins is already manufactured and ready to go.

Drat, looks likes they probably just boosted the numbers already then, lol.

 

I guess I can live with that too.

 

Now to wait for the big reveal on what number they came up with. XD

I like that idea, but it seems like we're too close to release to shake things up that much. With only two weeks left you'd think everything would be set as far as quantities go.

Edit: After reading that tweet again, it seems to suggest that only the CE quantities are set while the standard quantities are more flexible. Guess we'll find out soon enough.

If anyone here knew the answer realistically to your question, I doubt any of us would be here in the first place, as predicting the future would be a much more lucrative venture. LOL

 

You where joking right? As your question falls right in line with what the mod has just stepped in to stop(or at least a variation of it).

it's a joke i forgot to put s/

This - in a nutshell - captures what is wrong with the industry today.  

 

What ever happened to the most important question - "Hey, you think this game is worth playing?"

 

Oh well.

100% agree, always comes to down to money.

Here is one I'd like answered but I doubt will be, why are the standard versions of Lawbreakers codes going out when you have people who bought the CE that haven't received them yet?

 

These guys really needed to get their ducks in a row before ramping up this year but it's pretty obvious they didn't bother. 


Too much real life, not enough time for video games

Here's my guess

 

Let's say they produced 5,000 copies of Ys already. What I think will happen is that there will be a 24 hour window for sale and the first 5,000 copies will be shipped immediately while everyone else will wait til the next batch comes in. 

 

It's kinda cheating for a reprint status but it makes sense.

I would be disappointed if it was 5,000.

I thought the CE ones went out first?

I honestly have no idea how much they printed but I just took a guess.

Agreed. I bought the CE in the first batch trying to support them branching out into more mainstream releases, and I still havent gotten my code.

That is exactly what I was picturing.  And since it was all done in a single sale, it wouldn't be a reprint so to speak (but yea is kinda cheating lol).  You still only have a set limited time to secure a copy tho.

That's going to be a damned expensive day for me. Might be the most in a single day I've given to LRG.

Yeah... two covers on the standard, a CE for each system... easily a $200 day right there if you want everything. I'm betting there'll be a vinyl.

Oh well.


I don't think you identified a problem at all. In fact you explained exactly how it is possible for LRG to be successful. If everyone who bought LRG titles did so because they wanted to play the games, they wouldnt have sold 2 versions and 6000 copies of Mutant Mudd. So wtf exactly is your problem with the physical market being injected with cash by collectors to the point where they'll keep digital at bay for a few more years.
