Welcome to the SOL thread! No, you're not shit out of luck. In this case, SOL stands for a "small", "obscure" or "limited" release. This thread is for gamers and collectors who prefer to own their games on physical media. Here you can identify and discuss releases and deals for those games that weren't quite guaranteed to see physical prints.
Confused? Check the FAQs for more information!

 

This is a massive work in progress, so please bear with me as I work on this catalogue and develop the top post.

I'll work on this once I've got the list of all the games I know of complete.

Happy you think so. I'm hoping this helps a lot of collectors and myself. Hopefully people will be able to point some games that I've missed and ones that are released in the future.

Not sure why Lost Sea is listed here. Hasn't that game been sold out for months now and never to be printed again?

Which makes it very limited.

Not yet released, but you can pre-order it at Gamestop.

All Limited Run Games titles and out of print games will be added to the list. The point is to catalogue those smaller games that you wouldn't necessarily expect to get a physical release. Whether someone wants to pay the premium price for these games is up to them, but I want collector's to know they're out there.

May want to sort the sections by released and not yet released too then so people who are just eyeing to purchase upcoming stuff can get in on that instead of going through the entire list with stuff that's already sold out, or hard to get.

I didn't know. Thank you! I just pre order it :)

Maybe I can do something like this in the second post and keep the first post as a "master list".

 

I like the idea of just having an alphabetical list of all these physical games we might not know are available.

Just seems like it'd be a good balance between the deals and discussion of the thread.

 

If you want you could always keep a catalogue of all games in the second and third posts, and then have the upcoming ones in the op.

 

I mean, if the purpose is to catalogue things, not having them in the op shouldn't be a problem since people are here to look through the list anyways, but might be nice to have games that people can readily pre-order or prep for in the op for those who are just looking to see what's upcoming.

 

Just suggestions of course.

I'll probably do that. Something like "Upcoming", "Available" and "Out of Print".

 

Just gotta get the initial list done, first, though. Gonna work on it more tonight, when I have more time. Until then, everyone should feel free to leave any suggestions. I'm open to all ideas.

Maybe list the games in different colored fonts.  red for out of print, green for available, something else for upcoming.  But that might be more trouble than it's worth lol

Thanks for doing this, should be a great resource and good info so far. Had no idea about some of these, pretty crazy how so many of these titles just go under the radar even for someone who keeps up with the latest releases. So many of these are PAL only as well it seems, definitely grateful for most consoles being region-free nowadays. Just glad to see a lot of these smaller titles get physical releases at all, last gen it was looking like the digital was going to be the only way these titles would see the light of day at all but with stuff like Limited Run, etc I am happy to see that the demand is still there to provide this stuff for physical collectors.

thanks for putting this together OP. could you possibly put the platform next to the title for each so that it's easier for people than having to open up each one to check.

Although this thread is similar to the "Budget PS4 Retail Releases and Discussion" thread, I still think it's a good idea. Thanks for taking the time to set it up.

A few games to add: Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, Dead Rising 1&2, Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, RE4, etc.

I won't be adding remasters of last gen's AAA titles. They're very mainstream and mostly expected to see physical releases.

Very similar to that other thread from a few months ago, but it's been pretty dead so if OP keeps this one up to date than its great.

What about remasters of indie games, especially indie games that didn't have previous physical releases? Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams Director's Cut falls into that category.

 

I would also suggest adding these titles to your list (all three have only been released in Europe):

Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse

InFamous: First Light

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris (only the Gold Edition includes a disc in the UK)


Digital distribution is the death of preservation of the arts.

Trying to maintain a master & duplicate list divided by release will be a huge pain (coming from someone who maintains a similar list of games on another board). I'd say just put under each game "released / unreleased / OOP" and keep the one list.

 

Great idea tho - here's another one:

 

Rez: Infinite

I'm dedicated. This is as much for me as it is for everyone else. Once the foundation is layed, it shouldn't be too much of problem to keep updated.

 

I'll get Rez added soon.

Whether someone wants to pay the premium price for these games is up to them, but I want collector's to know they're out there.

I'm assuming you will be adding them later then since you are already down to the "T's" in your initial list and missed on a bunch of them (Octodad, Breach and Clear, etc)?  I'm also guessing you'll get to listing Retro City Rampage as well?

 

Great idea for a thread and thanks for taking the time to do it! Will be handy as I try to complete my collection.

 

Sounds like you are only listing current systems, right?  Original DS probably won't be considered a current system but it has a number of limited and hard-to-get physical games such as Diamond Trust of London, Electroplankton,  and the old Club Nintendo exclusives (Game and Watch Collection, Game and Watch Collection 2), to name a few.
