This site shows THQ replying to someone to ask where they got the black spine cover. It seems like this was an error they will fix. Got mine from Best Buy today and it has the black spine, but I had to ask someone to grab one out of the back because they weren’t out on display. They might pull these back and fix to red. At the very least the 2nd run will fix it I’m sure.

Cool, thanks for the info!  I think the black spine looks really nice - hopefully that is the one Best Buy ships me.

Aren't there rules against that sort of thing?  Or else everything on Switch wouldn't have those boring red spines and covers that also have the same font.

Doubt it will be super rare.  If people think it is, the market will be flooded with them in about 2 hours lol.

In other news, Borderlands GotY seems to be super limited via Gamestop.  Went this am and grabbed the last PS4 copy they had.  They got 2 total, and only 1 XB1 copy.  Maybe 2k didn't want to send them a bunch of copies because they know Gamestop is going down the shitter lol.

My copy of Borderlands GotY Xbox One I ordered from the 2K store was delivered this morning.
So overnight delivery for $2 is a great deal.

This turned into a major cluster. Gamestop wouldn't let you pre-order, but then employees at ALL EIGHT of the easily drive-able stores around me had employees ignore this and 'hold' them for customers before release. So I got to my favorite store of the bunch this morning at opening to try to get one of the 3 that I knew they were getting. The manger was super angry and dropping F-bombs (not at me, but over the situation). Not a single copy anywhere near me is available due to this nonsense. Hopefully it ends up restocking online.

There's a new listing for the PS4 version that says "Ships by 4/19": https://www.gamestop...-by-4-19/175290

Very nice, thank you. Their website was freaking out for me and giving me numerous errors. I finally had to checkout as a guest with a different card to get it to work.

I really don't think this is gonna be as limited as people are suggesting, Borderlands is a huge franchise wouldn't make much sense for them to get exclusivity at retail then not restock at all while it's so hyped

 

edit: worst part to me is just the stupid high gamestop.com shipping if you can't find it in store right this second

Thanks! I couldn't make it to a store in time to grab a copy.  Plus, this made it easier to grab an extra copy to gift my friend.  I would have felt too guilty grabbing any extras in store if they only had a few.

Darksiders on Switch has a print defect where the spine is black instead of red. Could become rare to have one of these first printings with the wrong cover.

Thanks for the info. Bought one - not to play but to pay for my youngest's college in 2033.

There's kinda a community on twitter that posts about limited games.

I may regret asking this. What hashtags or handles?

Trying to figure out how to add a pic via this ancient chat page and the fact that I hate my wife made me switch to iphone...ignore my post above. ‍♂

 

What does hating your wife have to do with getting a new phone?

I'm going to hazard a guess that it should read "I hate THAT my wife made me switch to iphone," though i could be wrong. 😅

You know what they say about investing. Diversify diversify diversify. Not too many investments have a copy of Darksiders misprint. Now if only I had a physical copy of Poop Slinger too...

Uhh, I just follow all the limited run developers and limited game news and a bunch of shit shows up on my feed. I'm not real big into social media.

When did SRG end preorders for The Messenger? I only knew about the LRG variant but wasn't interested. $35 for the game, outerbox, and hardcover book on the other hand seems like a nice set and I would have grabbed one.

April 2nd, same day as LRG's pre-orders ended.

I was still able to get The Messenger on the morning of April 3rd from LRG lol

Guess they flubbed their timer or tried to do the "sell to the nearest 1,000" thing, then. They definitely advertised it closing at the end of the day on the 2nd:

Aren't sample games the ones you sometimes see on eBay with a hole punched UPC? They're not meant for retail sale, only for promotional purposes...

Must be a manufacturing delay. My store only got PS/XB copies for this week.
