Hello Ladies & Gents,
This is a topic I have wanted to discuss for some time and see what people think of - which is the Distributing company 'Limited Run'.
The company seems to take game which are usually situated for Digital release and release a Limited Run of the title on physical edition. Of course it is a great opportunity for a game to get a physical release when it wouldn't but I have to say, I don't like the notion of this being of a limited stock only. It only leads to extortionate prices on eBay from months down the line and if this is the only method to get the game then once the title is sold out from the supplier that is it, for good.
We already have many Limited Editions of games (Too many if you ask me), even Day One Editions, which entice people to buy the game at launch for tid-bits of DLC... But often these Editions come back around for sale for a fair price. I don't see that happening with these series of releases at all. Even the way they number their releases just gives of this intention of their game being like prints of art, it's fine in the art world but gaming is a bit different, the product should be available to the consumer.
Do any of you own these games, what do you think of the process of a Limited Run of games? I'm still very hestiant.
