I would use PUR points to buy Days Gone and then trade it back in 48 hours later after you take/redeem the preorder bonus items.


This is smart.

While I love to crap on LRG for their shipping times and practices — I think most would agree that’s some well deserved poo— I can’t agree with the blind box criticism. They’re pretty open about the percentage chance of getting any particular game, with most of them being “commons.”


Blind boxes are probably their way of getting rid of extra stock.

How about the money lost in sales when higher volume customers get tired of those shipping practices and buy fewer or no items?


Correct

Save your breath bruh. The Loose Rattling Games apologist will keep defending them


Correct again.

Also the Spelunky CE for PS4 magically dropped from 79% to 28% overnight. LRG tends to do that when stuff isn't selling. Look at the fighting games from last week. I've seen it with a lot of other games as well. You know people aren't buying these in bulk as most LRG games don't go for shit anymore. They should just leave stuff until it sells out. Even now they want to create an artificial demand that doesn't exist for a lot of games.


Correct again.

I am sure that was their original intention.  But their their email is using how much something sell on ebay as a selling point and selling Celeste without full game, they are just like every other business out there trying to make as much money as possible.


Thank you.

I think you're the one that has missed the point.  LRG never set out to sell things that would definitely increase in value.  Their goal has always been to build a successful business selling games that would not otherwise receive a physical release.  The ultimate realization of that goal would be to somehow license and release every single digital game that doesn't have a physical release on the platforms they support (currently PS4, Vita, Switch, PS3 and PC).  Releasing fewer games or arbitrarily deciding that only the most popular or critically acclaimed games are worthy of physical release would defeat the purpose of what they are doing.  You're free to decide to buy and/or sell whatever you want, but you're badly mistaken if you think that cutting back on the number of releases somehow better serves the goal they set for themselves when they started the business or their own personal goals as collectors and gamers.


I have a video that disagrees with you. Where Doug literally says that the sweet spot for releases is 3-4 per month. Check it out for yourself:
