First Press's messaging is a little unclear. Their website mentions that, like Super Rare, these games will be sold in a triple pack limited to 500 pieces. Does that mean that none of these will be sold individually? If so, then I wish good luck to whomever is interested, because this'll sell through in under a minute.

Edit: Alright further down to the fine print. 3000 standard editions per game (500 specifically for the triple pack) plus another 1000 for the limited edition, which has a collectors box with additional merchandise a la Strictly Limited.
https://firstpressgames.com/collections/collection/products/n...

That's a tough call. Save on shipping with three standard editions a once? Or the uber-collectible LE + shipping per release? 120 Euro vs 240 Euro...roughly, just guessing. Personally, I feel that if the games were of a higher caliber I'd spring for the LEs. Unfortunately, each of these games are average at best, so I'm content with the standard edition.

@Magician I think they put the triple pack on sale and it may be sold out already. I will try my luck individually.

@Magician Thanks for the correction. I like platformers, so I may scoop these up in one swoop.

what a crap line up of games from first press. Hole in the sky looks ok but I would rather wait for Celeste. And after Warned Collectors going awol I no longer trust these new boutiques. I would feel like a real sucker if I got caught in that hype again cause it just feels like there are trying to milk us.

It depends on your perspective I suppose. I feel as though it's good to experience some 5/10 and 6/10 games every once in a while. It makes me appreciate the better received games all the more. And on top of that, even though First Press's initial lineup of games isn't great, they're still made by people who have more talent and desire than I have in regards to game design.

I respect that effort and support it whenever possible.

P.S. - Torchlight II coming physically to Switch thanks to Perfect World and Panic Button.

@Magician - Switch is the best system ever! Diablo and new Diablo, together, physically, and with offline modes.

Glory be!

Has anyone seen if the Spyro Reignited Trilogy will be 100% physical outside of NA? Looks like the box art for the NA version states there is a download component.

I doubt it considering even PS4 and Xbone versions have mandatory downloads.

Even a 32GB cartridge wouldn't save the Switch version.

It's a 70GB game on those platforms, each version with a 30GB download for the third game.

@Magician
So, 40 from Blu Ray + 30 from download = 70 GB ?

Yeah, single-layer bluray discs top out at 50GB. Any current-gen physical release on Sony or MS platforms with a file size bigger than 50GB has a day-one mandatory download. I'm surprised next-gen platforms like PS5 and Xbox Two are still allowing physical media. Most "big" games are 100GB or more these days, which is only going to get worse once we get to 8k visuals as standard.

We're going to get to a point where internet data caps will only allow you to purchase a couple or few games every year.

@Magician - Another reason I cannot enjoy the ride of the gaming's "power pissing contest" Microsoft and Sony are having. Less games, longer development cycles, larger download sizes, expensive price points, predatory post-launch transactions, now... add restrictive data limits will come crashing down on so many.

Thank God for Nintendo's mellow pacing and especially indie development scene. May have left long ago.

I can’t remember if this has already been mentioned, but Children of Morta will be getting a physical release late Summer from Signature Edition. Not sure if just a standard or if it will get the Signature Edition treatment, but I’m sure more info will be coming once it gets closer to releasing.

Super Rare has just announced The Gardens Between, coming soon. I’ve been waiting for this one. This will be my first Super Rare purchase in quite a while.
