I just found this thread and had a question (apologies if it's already been asked): There are some Xbox One games that had limited print runs or were only released in Europe. Would they qualify for this thread?

I only used the Play-Asia listings as references for info about the game. Many of those games are available on eBay as well.

If you find any more they absolutely belong here. There just aren't as many because the small boutique companies generally skip out on Xbox releases, reportedly because Microsoft's minimum order quantity is way higher than Nintendo's or Sony's. That's the only reason there's so little Xbox discussion in this thread.

There were a bunch more games listed on Play-Asia that I skipped either because they were pre-orders or because they seemed like vaporware (not available to buy anywhere so possibly it was canceled but product page never taken down), but if I find any more, I’ll post here again.

It seems like Pixelheart has a few more limited games coming out for Xbox One in Europe.

The Deathsmiles JP version is also available at Play-Asia...where it's cheaper, qualifies for their November free shipping deal, and is apparently identical in content (including an English language option):

I would get the SLG version of Deathsmiles since it will have the DLC on disc, but I still have 7 unfulfilled orders with them dating back over a year. I think I'm about done with them until they can get their crap together and start shipping out some games rather than keep offering up way more games than they can ship. At this point I am starting to question if I will ever get some of the games I've paid for, or if SLG is so poorly run they will go belly up before many of their games ever get made and shipped. LRG may have its faults, but at least I have great confidence that I will at least receive my shit at some point. SLG has gone from initially being my favorite limited print games company to being one that is being run like a 3-ring circus. I'll stick with Play Asia for Deathsmiles.

I'm with you there. I mostly hate how they have fully embraced the CE full of crap offerings that LRG is throwing out every chance the get. All the while, they still haven't fully addressed their own logistics issues before covid was a thing.

I used to pick up one or two CE's from them, but now everyone offers the exact same shit: 2 sided posters and acrylic standees; instead of something actually unique and interesting.

I stopped buying from them after the bite the bullet. They shipped out a broken version of the game and I’m still waiting for the replacement they promised.

I still get a majority of items that Special Reserve sells. Just got Talos Principle in the mail on Friday. IMO they are the gold standard

Disregarding that most of their stuff over the last year has been complete shovelware, $40 shovelware at that, they do package/market the games nicely.

I feel exactly the same ! I’m still waiting on my Turrican collection ! Along with 5 other orders. I wanted to order from them but realized why wait a year plus and pay almost double for a game when I can just order from Play Asia. Waiting over a year for multiple orders is inexcusable. It feels like a pyramid scheme to me.

Agreed...and their customer service has been top notch!

You take that back!  Broforce is not shovelware!

Received in the mail today: 2 games from SLG, 1 game from LRG, and a fully shrinkwrapped new game from GameStop. Feel like I need to go play the lottery later on.

If you randomly get a ps5 and an Xbox series x I say go for it.
