#14407567 Limited Run Games Thread - Global Outbreak of...Delayed Shipping

SNIP.


1. You gotta use paragraphs. No one is going to read that block of text.

2. The tweet is about how absurd it is that Amazon/eBay is getting a bigger cut than the kid selling the consoles.

Any one received an email from shopto stating they reduced the price of skyward sword preorder?

Nope. No one has posted anything about it this morning.

I got an email from shopto saying my Skyward Sword and steelbook had a cheaper pre-order price. The site isn't well laid out, but looks like the game will got $85 shipped instead of $112. That leaves a $30 credit for a site with $60 shipping.

It’s sold out again. The only way to get it right now is to rent it and keep it.

and you still struggled to get a ps5?

If you look at his past posts you’ll see he’s grabbed multiple consoles. He just complains about not getting more.

I think they pulled the free Mass Effect Steelbook offer. Maybe they're all claimed now.

The steelbook is available again.

Well the Scott Pilgrim sales numbers have started to come in (source: LRG cofounder Douglas Bogart's Twitter) and they are a bit staggering. For last weekend alone they sold over 45K Switch copies and 15K PS4 copies (and preorders are still open for almost 6 more weeks).

Even more staggering is the cash flow LRG is getting from this sale. LRG has gone on record stating that each developer they work with will get paid the full amount of the digital version of the game, and LRG will keep what is left for making the game, operations, and profit. Well, for Scott Pilgrim LRG charged a full $20 over the digital version (digital $14.99, physical was $34.99). That makes it a cool $1.2 million in their pockets after the developer gets paid. And that's assuming every version of the game sold was the cheapest standard edition (with the smallest profit margin). The profit margin on the CE is likely much more than $20 for each unit sold. And that's also not even counting the other high profit merchandise (shirts, pins, etc) that was sold.

I wouldn't be surprised if they bank over $5 million from this game when the preorder period is over. It would probably be wise to use a little of that money to hire some temp staff in the shipping department for when that game ships as it will frankly be much more than their current staff can handle. Yeah, they are not so much that little game company anymore.

Are you also accounting for the effort put in to make the deal, create the box art, marketing, actually producing the physical game, support staff to answer “when will it ship” tickets, etc?

I just got an email from Nintendo that said that the physical copy of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury is GameStop-exclusive.

True or false?

It says the posters are exclusive.

There’s also a steelbook for Korea, but I don’t have a link handy for that one.

So it’s confirmed it’s a Switch sized Steelbook for P5S on PS4 at BB? If that’s the case I’ll just buy the digital deluxe edition on PSN then.

Almost copied-and-pasted exactly from the last time you dealt with someone unpleased with LRG lol.

"Love and Attention" ? I'm asking for like..extremely minimalistic business expectations.

..no basis? I could show you the tracking number at this point that UPS is still awaiting the dropoff for 7 days, but at this point i'd assume the company would just not ship my order out of spite since i've whined on an internet forum ( or maybe that's what's going on ). You don't know what I have and haven't bought from LRG, lol, nor will you know what I won't buy in the future at this rate
