I'm creating this forum as a place to talk about everything physical in limited numbers. I have been collecting & selling rare video games for over 20 years. And now I'm afraid I'm about to go the way of the dinosaurs and become extinct in an all digital world. Feel free to discuss these topics and about your video game collection & video game collectables here.

Now on a sad note, as a result to the tragic death of Nintendo Influencer Etika Amofah which was reported on this site and others on June 25. Super Rare Games as decided to start a fundraiser for Mental Health. They will be donating 200 pounds and 100% of the proceeds of their T-Shirts sells for the next 7 days to Mind a Mental Health Charity. Here are the corresponding web addresses if you want to check out ether one of them. Plus although their website says some of the t shirts are sold out this is not entirely true. It just means some of the sizes are sold out and not necessarily all the t shirts in that design. They are also auctioning of a very very rare Autographed Framed Plaque With Trading Cards of two of their most sought after games Lovers In Dangerous Spacetime & Human Fall Flat. Even if you can't afford the plaques their definitely worth taking a look at.

Apparently you didn't know @Tasuki that Super Rare Games is a Video Game publisher based out of the UK. Just like Nintendo, Capcom, Sega ect. ect. are publishers. And their games and web site are posted/talked about by Nintendo Life's' own articles all the time. And they are by no means owned by me or anyone i know. I just thought it was a nice thing their doing.

What are you trying to say with that link @HobbitGamer. If your talking about a forum like it already existing this forum is for limited and rare games and collectables which 99% of the games on that forum are not. But i did like the shout outs on that forum for the company's on this forum. If your trying to say something else it went over my head. Plus this forum is for talking about such games not just their release date.

Your lucky @Jojabean44 i missed the limited run web site version but was able to get a limited run Best Buy version. Have you seen the crazy prices on ebay for your version. $150(U.S) is the cheapest one.

I do not like this. The rarity of these games is purely artificial. I wish they implemented a system where, if enough people asked, they would just release more copies. Maybe they could do a downpayment system, where, you put down 5 bucks and if enough people join you in a certain time frame, they make more copies and you can buy the game, if not, you just get your 5 bucks back, no harm done. It would be a way for companies to gauge interest and not worry about making more copies than they can sell.

@BacklogBlues I wanted to get the special edition one that came with the strawberry plush but it was sold out before I could even log in lol.

@Heavyarms55 i think limited run do this for all of their standard releases now. I think it's only the CEs with all the gubbins that are limited right off the bat

I have night trap CE and I have Dragons Lair standard on order. I guess the next thing id buy is probably double switch.

I quite want power rangers but I've already dropped the cash on digital and the mark up is too steep. Interestingly though, the CE of power rangers is still available. Normally these things sell out in seconds.

I also quite wanted Yooka Laylee and Golf story but again the markup was too high for Yooka Laylee and I'd already bought golf story digitally.

Generally these things are too expensive anyway but if you include shipping to UK then it is a huge markup! So I choose my purchases carefully.

Limited Run and Special Reserve meet customers halfway by making the standard edition of the games they publish open to preorder for a few weeks. Once the preorders close, then they place their cartridge order with Nintendo. The collectors editions of those games though? Yeah, they usually tend to sell out rather quickly.

Thinking of pre ordering a flip grip from the new run of them but a bit worried about getting stung by customs fees. I don't think fangamer include them in comparison to limited run who do.

I just pre order two copies of Collection of Mana. Although everybody who preorders it will get it. Once sells go live in August they won't produce anymore physical copies AKA a limited run. And it's the same price as digital.
