So lately, I've been trying to look for "niche physical games that were once easy to find but their availability is now dwindling and will be super hard to find at a good price very soon" games.

 

Do we already have a thread for those on here? If not, I think it would be a good thing to keep track of. Though I'd have no idea where to even begin with compiling a list of those kinds of games. I'm not talking about AAA games, so that would narrow it down a lot. Just to throw out a couple examples, I've always wanted to buy Cave Story+ for Switch, but just forgot I guess and I remembered recently and it's sold out at every retailer. Another I had some difficulty tracking down recently was The Sexy Brutale physical edition. I'm talking niche games like those that are well regarded, had a niche or quiet release and now are starting to become hard to find.

 

Anyone else interested in releases like that?

I like weird shit, usually because they’re fun games not so much the value. One I found recently that’s cool and likely niche is “Ghost Parade.” Like a Pokemon vania.

Having finally gotten around to playing Ghost of a Tale, I'd love to see a CE for it now. Such a love letter to Mouse Guard and Redwall fans in a nice little soulsborne package. Adorable and dark; fan-fucking-tastic.

For anyone interested in getting the Division 2 CE stuff minus the game, Microsoft is selling it for $20 on their EBay store.

Yup. Mentioned on page 2.  I got mine today. Brand new. No game with it. Worth it for sure.

Anyone have Zombie Army 4 CE preordered?  I have been waiting for it to become available at both Best Buy & GameStop to no avail.  I've tried GameStop retail locations since the game was announced, but they never opened it for preorders.  Same thing Best Buy. 

 

Meanwhile, the game has been available for months at EB Games Canada website.  I'm debating using a proxy service from Canada to the US just to get my hands on this bad boy, but was wondering if anyone out there has been successful in getting this preordered before I start the order...

It actually was available to preorder from Best Buy for a few week's time, but then they completely removed the listing from the site (just as I decided I wanted to preorder it).  Definitely makes me wonder what is going on with it.

It actually worked for that gift card offer they had with any game purchase of $100 or more even though it shouldn't have.  I already received the gift card and I got the GCU price.  My preorder is still active, so I think they just ran out of stock for preorders.

Thanks for the heads up on Best Buy at least being open for a little while.  I'm going to bite the bullet and order from EB Games Canada.  With the Canadian Exchange Rate, it will wind up being around $100 US ($30 less than US retail).  Figure whatever savings can help pay for the Proxy shipping from Canada to the US.  Just wondering why there's a larger window of availability for Canada versus US.  Maybe seeing the Strange Brigade CE on clearance at GameStop had an effect of some sort on their order of ZA4 CE

I just received an Item Delayed email from Best Buy on my TLOU - Ellie Edition, telling me my item is delayed, and they will work on getting my items to me until January 29, 2020.  

 

I hope this is a mistake, considering I ordered as soon as it went up and it doesn't even come out until May, lol.

Was it at Best Buy? I got that a few times with them and got locked out from purchasing for 24 hours.

i oredered everything from BB, but it was Capital One that texted me.  Probably because it was multiple individual orders because I got excited seeing all the games I wanted.

The Best Buy exclusive deluxe premium edition with the pouch finally started working with GCU. Not sure when this happened, but I know at least for the first week or two GCU didn't work with it. Still think it's a ripoff as it's $20 more for items that probably cost like 20 cents to make, but if you want it, GCU now works for it.

I appreciate the heads up, but it will be an easy pass for me.

Pretty sure you missed the window.  Both Best Buy and Gamestop did preorders online months ago now.  I don't think they are going to be available in stores given the limited quantities available.  Maybe check again a week before release on Gamestop.com as they will do some cancellations for failed payment I'm sure.

"As far as we're aware via our distributor it is still available in the US. It has sold very well though so you may have to do a little digging to find your own edition. Calling your local retailer might be an idea as they may be able to locate a copy for you." This was the response I got when I emailed them, so very likely I missed the pre-order. However, I could wait and see for any cancellations around release date.
