Seriously Capcom/Iam8bit? I loove me some physical media but $100? You could buy both of the original carts for less and still have money to spare, plus those won't make your NES/SNES burst into flames (lol). Why do they keep reprinting games that are affordable and readily available? Why not reprint X2/X3 or Mega Man 7? Or Street Fighter Alpha 2 for the SNES instead of plain ass SFII? Street Fighter 2 is probably the most re-released and ported game in the history of video games. You would have to make an effort to not own SFII at this point.

Honestly, it's because Capcom USA is probably the most clueless companies around. Just look at the last 10 years or so of what they have offered online at their store, and you'll see just how bat shit crazy they are. LOL

Arguing over 100$ limited old school goodness but buying 80-100$ versions of limited physical 3$ garbage. Priceless.

Could someone please give me the generic play Asia discount code? I’m going to be ordering a game tomorrow and would appreciate the small savings.

MYPSVITA also gets you $3 off.  I think there may be a few other $3 off codes floating around too, though you can only use one in any given order.

 

Also, just got an email saying Play-Asia will be releasing limited standard edition copies of Bleed and Bleed 2 for PS4.  1000 of each available.  Bleed will be $15.99 and Bleed 2 $17.99 with free shipping.  I wonder if you can use a $3 off code with each in 2 different orders (since both ship free) for final prices of $12.99 and $14.99 each?

I can't get any of the codes to work on either single copy of Bleed. Seems you need to combine them. Anyone get it to work on a single disk?

Nope, I had to do the same for MYPSVITA to work.

Merge Game contacted me asking where I got the $19.99 from. I told them "In the email your PR company sent." After that I corrected it.

Hopefully it'll be like "I am Setsuna" and play in English when you pop the JP cart in an American system. :pray:

  

So far every other release has worked this way, including the physical cartridge for Bayonetta 1.


Just wanted to quote these because I picked up the Japanese version of the Naruto Ninja Storm Trilogy and it turned out that unlike "I am Setsuna", it was solely in Japanese, not English. Wasn't able to get any info before hand and I made the mistake of assuming, so that's on me.

Looks like I'm cancelling my pre-orders for both parts of Rockman X collection and waiting to see what others say before I decide to get them or just cave and get the half assed US version.

Bandai Namco is REALLY shitty about languages. NA never gets Japanese text and Japan doesn't get Western languages.

Merge seems to be distributing to Best Buy, Amazon, Gamestop and Target in the United States, so it should be widely available like all of their upcoming releases.

I am still waiting on Best Buy to list some of their upcoming Switch releases like The Coma Recut and Slain: Back to Hell but I am sure they will be listed eventually (...hopefully).

I don't think any of their US releases have truly firm release dates yet.  I've had all of them preordered on Amazon since they were listed and I keep getting revised release estimate e-mails.  Even Brawlout is showing either 06/12 or 06/26 depending on the retailer.  I wouldn't be surprised if it slips to July or August.

Sometimes I hate it when Play Asia is the only place to get something. Really wanted the Owl Boy limited editions but after looking at the cost after shipping.. yeah, no, just can't pull the trigger on that and sleep at night. Almost justified paying for it but the shipping quickly put an end to that.

I love collecting beautifully done limited editions but at some point a line has to be drawn on these things and this just ain't worth it.

Play-Asia is just the first company to list the product. They've stated it's not exclusive to them.

Oh, I was under the impression they were the exclusive provider. That would be awesome if true but can't find anything confirming who else will carry it. At the moment Play-Asia's the only place.

Sodesco announced on Twitter it would be in a few stores in many regions.

I just can’t understand a 6k print run for this and then split it up to only a few hundredish per retailer.

So far its only been smaller retailers it seems.  Some European ones (which I assume are smaller since I never heard of them before), Play-Asia and now VGP (where its listed at $89.99 CDN).

 

Still passing unless it comes to Best Buy or I can get it for $50 or so.
