Confused. Totes though they said that every Vita game would be TV compatible. Hmm....

Yeah, I was hoping Oddworld was compatible.  If they don't fix it, I suppose I'll eventually play it on my Vita, but that's a game I greatly prefer to play on a big screen.  As for Xeodrifter, I enjoyed it.  It's a Metroidvania, a little on the basic side, but fun.

If compatibility, or lack thereof, is a thing now, I'd say get it for ps4.

totally forgot about these guys, I probably would have picked up Saturday Morning RPG, but at least SÖLDNER X will be available soon. For those of you who don't have a PSTV, Walmart had these on Clearance for 19.97 and the Controller bundle ones for 29.97. Unfortunately you will have to check in store and it probably won't show up on brick seek. I picked up two a little while back and still saw them sitting in cases a 2 months ago when I checked. Most staff won't know what they are or what they look like. I only met one Walmart employee that knew what I was talking about when I mentioned Playstation TV.

Note that the box is small and will likely be in with the bottom of the Walmart glass case with the vitas or other sony hardware.

Is there a way to search if any lovely (in your area) still have any?

Next time I go to walmart in a day or two I can see if they still have them here locally and can pick it up and charge you cost+shipping if you are interested. Though there are also a few on amazon for sub 30 shipped for the non bundle.

Looks like Brick Seek is working to search

Dueal Shock and Lego Movie Bundle (No Sly, Game codes have expired)
38457128
 
Playstation TV non bundle

Thanks for the info.  I'd heard they were on sale a bit ago and thought about picking up another, but yeah they are all gone from my area.

All gone at Walmart here too.  I checked last week, hoping I could score a cheap one to use to play PSP ISOs, keeping my current one for legitimate games.

y'know, f*ck these guys.
artificial scarcity- so many of these are specifically bought by resellers.
even 2/3 of the local shops around me all bought new copies of their games specifically to mark up by $30.

I would have liked to get oddworld, but nah. f*ck it.

Now hold up.  How about f*ck your local shops that flip for a markup?  The Limited Run guys are doing nothing wrong and in fact, like Necro mentioned, they've made it harder for flippers to buy up multiple copies.  I personally think what they're doing is f*cking awesome.  If you don't want to support them, then just don't buy the physical release.

To answer another member's question - yes, I do play the games I've bought (currently working on Oddworld).  In fact, had they not physically released them, I most likely wouldn't have played them because I boycott DLC.  I hope Limited Run keeps em coming!

Yeah LRG has been limiting people to one copy (had been 2 but lately it has been one copy per platform). Of course stores are going to buy copies to mark up. That's part of how LRG is selling out games so quickly.

I can't pat LRG too hard on the back, seeing as they're intentionally limiting production numbers to feed the collectard mindset.  I understand not wanting a warehouse full of unsold stock, but surely there's a middle ground between that and selling out within minutes, but they're worried that most current buyers won't buy at all if the production numbers were less constricted.

Generally terrible, but I was able to take advantage of a store that did that by getting complete PSP games for dirt cheap. Gamecube as well previously but Gamestop recently raised their Gamecube prices (due to their retro nonsense).

They definitely know what they are doing. Like you are saying, resellers and gotta catch em alls are a big part of how they sell out. It does bother me that despite the fact that I really do want Soldner, I may not be able to get it because they are making 3200 total copies.

I thought they took the whole limited angle due to cost from Sony to makes the physical games that are up front. Along with the cost of obtaining the rights to distribute the game from who ever owns the IP rights for these Indy games.

I'm sure that was an issue to start, but they had to have made enough profits off the first release or two to pay for larger print runs now.
