Nice! Thanks.
Any difference between ps4 and switch? Censorship?

Just order both to save on shipping — return the one you don't need later.

Is this heavily censored on ps4? Or should I just get the switch version?

The Switch version has performance issues.

At the moment, it's also $20 on Amazon. Too good of a deal to pass up for me.

Yeah I looked it up before buying. PS4 version loads twice as fast, looks better, and has far less framerate issues than the switch version.

Nice deal.  These Idea Factory games usually dont drop this low before selling out.

I sometimes wonder how many people buy these games to play vs. those self-proclaimed "investors" who buy these merely because they think they're rare and will rise in price. I don't personally care, but it's sad to think how many folks are buying these just to have them sit unopened on a shelf or in a box, while folks who do want to play it have to resort to scalpers ... ahem, I mean, "investors."

I miss the days when people really bought games for themselves AND to play.

I bought 6 copies and I won’t be opening any of them. 2 will go on WhatNot for $40 each and 4 will go in cases and into the closet of doom.

The folks who want to play it can still buy it at MSRP and support the publisher/developer because it's still available at some retailers. 

 

The folks who just wanted it on sale are taking the same gamble as they have been taking for the past few decades, someone else might beat you to that sale price. Plus given that these games are available digitally, there's nothing forcing you to pay scalper prices anymore.

What would you classify people who buy it with the intention to play but never get around to playing? I had the opportunity to buy this but decided not to since I knew I would never make it to the game in my backlog, especially since it is the 3rd game in a series. I would feel compelled to actually find the first 2 games for a reasonable price and play them first before starting this one. Also, I have a weird aversion to first person dungeon-crawlers for some reason (maybe PTSD from old computer games that required graphing paper).

The 2nd one comes bundled with the first game from what I remember and it's been on sale on the eshop under 5 before as that's when I bought it for what it's worth.

 

I just buy stuff sub 20 when its on sale and throw it into the backlog. I'll get to it eventually but rpgs can take longer to play than most games so it slower to clear them out of the backlog.

This isn’t nearly as existent as it once ones. 99% of the niche games now are either overprinted, not in demand, or get reprints if they are rare. How many Koei/NIS/Atlus/xseed games have we seen on sale for 30%+ off a few months after release. SMT plummeted to like $20 after a few weeks. You see nis classics, Akibas trip, and other special editions for like $30. Thirteen sentinels was reprinted and became $20. Blue reflection 2 is currently $40. NIS reprinted Ys, Langrisser, disaster report, Etc. Not saying people don’t still do it, but there is definitely less payoff now.

Hm... very good points. I didn't even think about this. I definitely over-paid for a ton of niche games this gen either because I didn't think they'd be reprinted or didn't think they'd go on sale. Beyond your list: Ryza got a reprint, Ryza 2 was on sale for like $40 (or it was part of Target's B2G1F?), Ys IX went on sale for $40 and so did Cold Steel 3. I can only think of like a few over-priced niche games: Cold Steel 1 and 2 PS4 (honestly surprised these weren't reprinted), Crystar (PS4 version, though surprised this didn't go down yet with the NS release coming) and Blue Reflection 1.

I was shocked BR1 didn't get a reprint at the time of BR2.

I'm curious to see if Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Bayonetta 1/2 get reprints later this year with the launch of XC3 and B3.

Definitely not 99%.  Probably closer to 75-80.  Tecmo Koei and Nisa are scattershot with reprints. The former being more stingy with them. They did do reprints of fairy tail ryza 1 and 2 but they didn't do reprints for all platforms and there's other titles like blue reflection 1 and the other atelier games that didn't get them. 

cold steel 3 and 4 got reprints but Ys 8 did not to my knowledge. Ys 9 I don't recall going out of stock. Celceta ps4 I think finally started to dry up. Cold steel 1 and 2 both had small prints for ps4 and haven't yet gotten a reprint.  There's also the underwater ray romano series  (utawarerumono titles prelude to the fallen, mask of deception, mask of truth) which didn't get reprints iirc and have been pulled off psn I believe as well. 

 

13 sentinels went to 15 before it went oos around black friday and then got reprints a number of times though the reprints are the game only not the launch edition. Gravity rush ps4 has been getting a steady set of reprints as well via gamestop though they convert them to used because they are a shady ass company.

cs3 actually went on sale for 14 or so on ps4. I know because I have a copy from when it dropped that low. I made the mistake thinking that 4 would follow suit before it went out of print for about half a year. switch cs3 and 4 also went on sale and supposedly cs4 is 30 at walmart though that's probably ymmv.
