As of today, you can now preorder Rez Infinite through iam8bit.  iam8bit is supposedly releasing the exclusive physical version (i.e. it'll be digital everywhere else) for PS4.

 

It's also compatible with PSVR and region free.

 

Never played it, but heard great things!

 

Officially ships around October - get it while you can!!

 

 

EDIT: Forgot the link

Just a heads up.

 

Cheapest shipping option is media mail $5 up to 2 copies, and $7 thereafter.

 

Tax for certain locations.

for those that aren't aware, iam8bit is deplorable. They have horrible customer service, after market pricing, and when people complained about their shipping practices, they just decided to remove media mail altogether from the Rez items. On Neogaf, a good portion of us in the game vinyl thread have basically started boycotting them over their practices. 

 

Just be aware that there is a good chance your items will be delayed and arrive way later than anticipated.

Media mail is an option for checkout here, so I'm guessing they didn't decide to remove it altogether yet. :P

It's most likely going to be in a bubble mailer since they've shipped other things similar size like that, and they'll be shipping it media mail, so good luck. :P

I have the NMS CE pre-ordered there under my old address. I've asked them twice to change the address... and twice they've told me it's been updated. My order page still shows my old address.:-s

It's probably because you don't visit the LRG thread! ;D

How long do these pre-orders last before selling out?

Lol this is a joke. Anyone know the price for a digital copy? It's almost the price of a full on game. I can't believe this will do well for them. Even us guys buying unknown LRG releases aren't biting.

Nope. Not at $40.

Yeah, I'm going to have to go with you on this one. While I don't necessarily consider $40 to be out of the question, I'm still a little leery of pre-ordering a physical copy of this title. I still need to throw in one of my copies of the original Rez and give it a try. It's one of the more prominent titles in my backlog. Perhaps I would be more gung-ho with more experience with the series. But as it stands a game that seems optimized for VR is not what I'm looking to pre-order on. Titles like Octo-Dad and Oddworld: New and Tasty were easy sells. They had broad critical acclaim before they ever got a physical release. While the Rez series is generally well-regarded, this latest game hasn't been released yet. No one has any idea if it will actually be a good entry.

 

Going to have to wait on this one.

Dang straight.  I had the DC version imported from the UK... but eventually sold it due to financial needs and it being worth too much at the time to keep.

LRG also ships using bubble mailers as do most of the major retailers.  It's something to be expected when shopping online.  Media Mail is basically the same as First Class with the addition of it being defined contents as "media".  Granted I'd rather it be a box... but eh, $40 for what to me is easily a $60 AAA game, I have no issue with the price or shipping.  But I'm also fine not getting it day 1 or 10 or heck even the first month since it's going to my PS4 backlog which I plan to start playing sometime next year before Shenmue 3 comes out.

10 years from now no one will give much thought for most of those LRG releases because most just aren't great games.  Heck most (not all) of them now people don't talk about even in an ironic way.   They publish collectibles of mostly very cheap digital only games  that most of the owners aren't even opening because they are for flipping to ebay.  It's a big bubble market that will pop.  REZ is a known franchise with a cult following and AAA for it's genre.  People will still want this 10 years from now and will have fond memories of it.   Will it be worth more in 10 years?  No telling, but most really amazing games like this will spike in value.  Rez has done this before on Dreamcast & PS2... it'll happen at some point for this game.

If by basically the same you mean they're both services that USPS offers, then yes, they're basically the same.

Remaster. I played it at Sony's Press Conference at E3 and it's the same exact game.

Never bought anything from this UK website.  It will take like a month to get to the USA, if I choose media mail right?

It's almost insulting they would use media mail and charge $5 rather than using first class which is faster and cheaper and should be no more than $3.50 anywhere in the country. On top of that $40 for game that will most likely be less than $20 digitally.

The game will be $30 on PSN at launch, so $40 is not really that bad.

Why are you ordering from the UK website?  They have a US website and will ship from Los Angeles like they always do for US customers.

Ahh ok, $40 seems fair then.

If by basically the same you mean they're both services that USPS offers, then yes, they're basically the same.

I just mean that they ship (for a small bubble envelope) about the same time frame with the same level of care.   It's pretty much the same exact service just with a different stamp on it declaring it media mail.  I mean... I've shipped a lot of stuff Media Mail, First Class, Priority... time frames were pretty consistent between Media Mail and First Class.

 

In the end, as long as I get my game, I'm cool.  Same for everyone that ordered from LRG today and will be waiting a few weeks for their games to show up.  All of these companies kind of suck in one way or another.  LRG's distribution center issues, glitchy website, and loose discs.  iam8bit's use of media mail and inflated shipping costs (and supposedly poor customer service?).  No one really does that great a job.  Well... maybe fangamer.  I thought their website worked fine and shipping seemed fair enough.  I'll find out in October just how good these other companies are any better.  In the end though... it's all about the games for me.

Misinterpreted "go to UK store" as if it was a UK site.  Now I'm starting to see why everyone is mad at this website for using media mail.

Fair enough I guess. If it were $25 plus $5 shipping I'd already have a copy and be waiting for their next drop. For $40 + unknown shipping costs? I'd rather save my money for something else.

I'm not saying they should give up. I'm saying I hope they learn a lesson from this and price their games more reasonably.

Rez is $30 digital, so a mark up to $40 for a physical copy is a reasonable price.  For many people shipping is $5 with media mail.  My only complain is no option for 1st class mail.
