    They haven't did one per customer since way back when. I'm talking around the time Abe's Odysee or somewhere around then. People say why don't they do one per customer literally ever single game, never happens. It honestly never happens and I don't expect it to here either.

    The thing is, we know this is their biggest release, they know it's their biggest release. They've already said they have a 10,000 game and it might be this one, or this one might be even bigger. Ys Origins sold 8000 and 9000 for PS4 and Vita so maybe 11,000 and 10,000 here would meet demand?

    1 per customer has happened a lot of times, but it's usually applied to second batches after first batches sold out really fast at 2 per customer.

    It has a reversible cover, which all but guarantees it will not be 1 per customer. They know damn well people will buy 2 of each for Vita and PS4 because of this. You can also bet that there will be an overpriced CE, Soundtrack, and other crap like t-shirts etc. Might as well milk their customer's for all their worth.

    They just did one per customer on the Merc Kings/Flinthook Tribute Box CE. They are also doing one per customer on the Ruiner variant.

    I actually liked the first Pixel Junk Monsters, but for $39.99? No way. It's not that good, I'll just stick to the first one on my PSP. Also, the deluxe edition is being sold on PSN and will get all DLC as well for only $21.99 yet the LRG version is $18 more? Seriously? It's a bit ridiculous how much LRG out prices just about every other indie publisher on the market and hasn't had backlash because of the rarity.

    "IIt's rare, you can buy the game digitally if you want to play it, physical releases are a luxury." This is all true. Not going to argue with it. But you don't see other publishers being scummy about their pricing. I don't even have to list any other publishers because other publishers are far more competitive with their pricing, far more fair to the fanbase that purchases their games. That, and I've listed many games that were cheaper many times over, publishers that have been paying for the ratings board listings since day one. These publishers didn't cry about having to now pay more licensing fees so they're going to jack up the pricing of all their games in the near future. Most of these publishers price the games the exact same price that they sell for digitally, not $10, $15, sometimes even $25 more as there are digital games that they've released $5 or less but their minimum of $25 rule still had them out price most other indie publishers.

    "But LRG isn't as big as those publishers. The risk! THE RISK!!!!!!!!" I've heard it said here often. What risk? LRG knows the games will sell in 30 seconds or less. If they don't, then a week, but the games will sell out regardless. Any risk of not completely selling out is compensated for the amount the game is overpriced and the amount they're actually making off the top. Some of this goes to the devs, some goes to Sony, but they sell it from their own store front, they're the publisher and the retailer so make both profits that would normally be split.

    Hell, Kemco is releasing a collection of four of their RPGs in Japan for less than the cost of the LRG releases of the same titles. These are some of the games that LRG has already released and as a collection, Kemco is pricing them less than LRG single releases. After seeing this, I'm betting the licensing for the really cheap games is in LRG favor, so there's no reason their pricing should be so high.

    Also, the ESRB rating fee is what, $3000? But they're going to increase the price of each game by $5 when they do it in the near future? What about those games that have more than 3000 copies sold, which is just about everything. So we're not just paying the ESRB fee, we're paying an additional $4 on top of that. LRG uses the ESRB fee as an excuse, but it's an easy way to screw us out of even more money while the people blind to their greed keep throwing money at the computer screen like there's no tomorrow.

    Overpriced as shit and 99% of their games never have the latest updates.

    Axiom Verge? Latest update. Velocity 2X? Latest update and all DLC on disc. Senko no Ronde 2? Version 1.00 with a update download of 1.05. Additionally, we not only not get the Sega DLC, which is obvious, but even the developers own Assault Suits Valken DLC isn't included, but hey, still gotta add that $15 more dollars! You know, because of "risk."

    Anyone get their games today? I totally passed on all of them. I want to concentrate on Cosmic Star Heroine CE for Vita.

    Yeah nothing for me today either. Next week I'll defintely get Cosmic Star and Antiquia for Vita though. Just the standard version of CSH - I feel all their LE's are overpriced cash grabs.

    After June 13th, LRG is going to slow down releases. Atleast until they pick it up again starting the following month, or a mere two weeks later.

    I think their idea of slowing down is that, instead of offering ten games weekly, they will offer only 9.

    Best way to get a slowdown with LRG is to just cut back on what you choose to buy. I'm quite content skipping everything but Vita. Though they seem to be dropping hints at possibly releasing 8-bit Adventure Anthology, and I may grab that for PS4 if they do.

    Does anyone know if there were any rumors or confirmation of 20XX getting a LRG or any retail release for that matter?

    Cosmic Star Heroine is a preorder? It's not going to be super rare and sell out in two seconds? Preorder canceled!! J/k. Very smart move for keeping an open preorder, everyone has been interested in this one.

    Except for the CE edition. And since they put two per customer, it's gonna be a bloodbath.

    I considered the collector's edition just now after looking what it offered and looking at the price. But honestly. $35 for all the stuff would be good if I opened it, thing is, if I get the collector's edition I'm never going to open it so all I'll see is the box. It's no different than the standard box with the game in it at that point, except it costs more, it can get damaged easily, the space it takes up, etc.

    Viewing the contents though, I do think that this is a worthwhile collector's edition for those who are interested. The price seems to atleast match what's included. Infact, I think what's included if purchased regularly would exceed the price of this collection. Hopefully those of you going for it get one. I've got another 35 minutes to contemplate whether or not I'll go for it.

    *edit*

    So I wasn't even considering the collector's edition at all. After looking it up and making the comment here about how it looks like a good collector's edition and that the price is good for what you get, I at that moment actually made myself interested in it.

    I ended up thinking about it and determined that I'm keeping a sealed copy for the PS4 either way, and why even buy two Vita copies when I'm never going to open either of them. I figured I'd get one standard PS4 copy, one collector's edition, and one Vita copy. Honestly. I shouldn't have even bought the standard copy and just got two PS4 collector's editions, one to open, the other one to keep sealed. I think I'll consider buying a second one during the other batch and then seeing if they can remove my standard copy and merge the two orders. I'll be working though so might not even get the chance to depending on what's going on.

    I only got the CE edition of CSH and Antiquita, both for Vita.



    I will now start selling my old LRG releases, particularly those i am not interested much in. Add in a Wonderboy CE and Night Trap CE in there as well.

    Wanna start slimming down and concentrating on life more than games, if that makes any sense.
