So apparently Strictly Limited Games can't count.  I received 99 Vidas today; I ordered 2 for Vita and 2 for PS4, both standard editions and they sent me 1 of each. Ugh.  I emailed their support line, guess I play the waiting game. Lame.

That really sucks. I hope you didn't sell your spares already, as buyers aren't always very understanding.

It looks like Cursed Castilla EX will get a new physical release in Spain.

Sorry I can't post links, look for it on the game dot es website.

Crazy request

Anyone have a lead on a sealed copy of Fortnite for the PS4?  Can't find one anywhere near me and I wanted a physical copy of the game for my collection.

Can't decide if I should get Darkest Dungeon on PS4 or Switch

Switch all the way on that one. I've held out on buying it for a physical release so I am really looking forward to playing this on my Switch, seems perfectly suited for handheld play.

This is an update concerning the promo item for Ni No Kuni II CE. According to the Best Buy Rep, the promo item will be added to existing orders. I personally would still keep an eye on the product page to see if orders can be placed again Also keep an eye on your existing orders to see if they really add the promo item. He also suggests that there could be an email update sent to you concerning those existing orders.

 

May or may not be shady depending on how you look at it, I guess if you would rather just guarantee one now for peace of mind, you can order one of the other editions of the game, keep the promo item, and refund the game new.

For those of you who may remember the above concerning the Ni No Kuni II CE pre-orders and the FiGPiN promo item with Best Buy. I just got an email about an update to my preorder and I've confirmed via purchase history that they added the promo item to my order. Just wanted to give a heads up.

5000 copies was probably Nintendo's minimum. It's most likely why LRG didn't release any sooner.

Understandable. They just chose an unfortunate name for their company.. it'd almost be like a greasy burger joint naming themselves "Super Healthy Foods".

Yea, but they did that intentionally, so they brought it upon themselves. They really would have been better off with a different game. It'll be interesting to see just how fast/slow this sells to get a good indication of how many copies future switch releases should get.

Yeah, 5000 very much appears to be the minimum, and I'm sure LRG is only going to do NS games that they know can support those large qty's. The PS4 is roughly in the 70 million user base, and most of those games in the 3000 range can be hard to move(depending on the game). The NS is at around 12 million installed base, and then having a 5000 order is going to be nuts.

 

I really only see LRG offering the most high profile titles they can for the NS as even with that rabid user base, 5000 is going to be hard to move. I don't think these super rare guys thought this trough that far. As their name alone is the exact opposite of what is being offered, and I don't see any of these games selling out in a short time, which in turn is going to move less and less with each new offering. Why buy now, when a sale is coming soon?

Has anyone received their 25th Ward Collectors Edition from Amazon yet? Or a shipping notice?

I believe I read that their founder is only 19 years old...which would explain the terrible choice in company name (as it sounds like something a kid would think up).

Received mine yesterday.  In a bubble mailer of course.  Small amount of damage to one of the corners, but nothing to contact Amazon about.

Yeah, an interview was posted here on CAG not long ago, and he came across as a young punk know it all to me, who didn't know his ass from his elbow. LOL So I'll for sure be watching Super Rare if for no other reason than to see what this kid can do, and what he can't.

"Our competitors' downfall is that when you release so much content, you lose the collectability of having a set. If you ask people to buy two games a month, you're downvaluing the product"

 

This statement alone shows how clueless this kid is, as he can't currently offer more than one or two games, so it's bad that others are? The reality is, most of these games aren't considered collectible even by those who make them. And most can be had for pennies on the dollar in digital form. Yes, there are collectors, but if he thinks a "mobile" game that has a 5000 qty is going to be worth anything in the next 10-20 years, he's as high as he looks! LOL
