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.
